Top White House aide Stephen Miller said during a highly contentious interview with CNN's Jake Tapper that former presidential strategist Stephen Bannon's recent criticisms of Donald Trump Jr. were "grotesque".
Business Insider quoted two sources as saying that after the recording of the interview, Miller was politely asked to leave several times, and then security was called and he was escorted out. "Your being obsequious, you're being a factotum in order to please him [Donald Trump] and I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time", Tapper charged, abruptly ending the interview and turning to the camera to announce another item.
President Trump praised Miller, tweeting shortly after the appearance which at times devolved into an on-air shouting match, that his aide had "destroyed" Tapper. But Bannon and Miller were the closest of allies, and Miller doesn't deny that Bannon helped get him his job with then-candidate Trump.
Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo, who said Mr Trump was "completely fit" to lead the country, said he paused before answering because it was such "a ludicrous question".
"Stephen, settle down", said Tapper.

Miller's interview on CNN's "State of the Union" quickly grew heated, with Miller criticizing CNN's coverage and moderator Jake Tapper accusing Miller of speaking to an audience of one: his boss. Miller agreed with Trump's description of himself, adding that Trump is a "self-made billionaire who revolutionized reality TV and who has changed the course of..."
CNN responded with an article breaking down Miller's "most grotesque lines".
Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said she visited the White House once a week, and "no one questions the stability of the president". "I sat on the couch, and that's the point of view I wrote this book from; the point of this book is to have readers sit on the couch and watch what's happening in the West Wing", said Wolff. At least some Republicans believe Miller is installing policies in a potential immigration bill knowing full well it would not pass in the Senate, where the GOP now has a razor-thin majority, according to the report.
"No one came off looking good in this interview", he tells OneNewsNow.
Take offense. Take offense on behalf of others, as Miller did at that August briefing, when CNN's Jim Acosta asked about Trump's plan to emphasize English-language skills in immigration decisions and quipped, "Are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?" Why don't you just give me three minutes to tell you the truth of the Donald Trump that I know and that all of our campaign knows?
