Donald Trump Calls CNN's Jake Tapper "Flunky" After Bizarre Stephen Miller Performance

Donald Trump Calls CNN's Jake Tapper

Miller was there to trash the book and its sources, namely Steve Bannon, ousted from the Trump Train and recently spurned by his original patrons, the billionaire Mercers.

Before it ended, Mr. Tapper told Mr. Miller, who is known for his hard-edge attacks on political opponents and the news media, that he was wasting his audience's time. This week, the president released a statement slamming Bannon, whom he said "lost his mind".

". You get 24 hours of negative anti-trump hysterical coverage on this network that led in recent weeks to spectacularly embarrassing false reporting".

"Steven, I'm trying to get to the issue of the president's fitness", Tapper said.

Tapper also asked about Trump's tweets on Saturday about how he was a "very stable genius" and "like, really smart" and questioned Miller on whether those assertations were helpful to Trump's cause.

Tapper grew exhausted of Miller repeating pro-Trump and anti-Bannon talking points and called the aide's constant interruptions "hysterical, ' as he cut the interview short by announcing, 'I think I've wasted enough of my viewers" time'.




Tapper hit back, saying he was sure Trump was "watching and he's happy you said that". That exchange occurred in the White House briefing room, where Miller accused Acosta of having "cosmopolitan bias" for wrongly believing that Donald Trump's proposed immigration ban would prevent non-english speakers from coming to the United States.

"Not only do I think [the tweets] help, but I think in the toxic environment that you've created here in CNN and cable news, which is a real crisis of legitimacy for your network - and we saw it, of course, with the extremely fake news that you reported about the Don Jr. and WikiLeaks story". Miller then hit on specific examples of CNN's mistakes while reporting on the Trump administration.

"I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical", Mr. Tapper responded.

White House officials said their records showed that Mr. Wolff had last talked to the president in February, but Mr. Wolff said he had talked to the president several times after that. And you're obsequious, you're being a factotum, in order to please him'.

But Tapper responded: "The president has an approval rating in the 30s, I don't know what's magical that you're talking about".
