White House Denies That Adviser Was Escorted Off Set After CNN Interview

Charles Rex Arbogast | AP | BDN

Miller, in turn, scolded Tapper for making "condescending" and "snide" remarks and bashed CNN for airing "24 hours of negative, anti-Trump, hysterical coverage".

President Trump surprised White House aides when he invited the press in to watch him negotiate immigration policy with Democrats and Republicans for 55 minutes on Tuesday, and the point seemed to be "to show that he could do his job, "The Washington Post reports, after a week dominated by the Michael Wolff book Fire and Fury, which suggests otherwise".

While many panned Miller's CNN fight with Tapper, he did have one very big fan in his corner, President Donald Trump.

Despite having "no knowledge" of the meeting, Miller said he was certain all of the allegations in Wolff's book are "a pure work of fiction" and "nothing but a pile of trash through and through". "But I think to me, a clean bill is a bill of DACA - we take care of them, and we also take care of security".

"Miller also lamented Steve Bannon for making "grotesque comments" in the book, ones he said are "so out of touch with reality" and vindictive".


"You worked hand in glove with Steve Bannon in the White House and on the campaign", Tapper asked.

In response, Tapper noted that the only person who has called himself a genius recently is Trump.

"I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that", Tapper responded. Even though the CNN host had to cut Miller off after things got out of control, they kept their intense fight going off-camera, and Miller reportedly had to be escorted out of the building afterwards.

Miller could be heard protesting off-camera while Tapper moved on to the next segment.

After a few more exchanges like this, Tapper made a decision to cut Miller off for good.
