'Fire and Fury' Is 'Grotesque' and 'Fiction': Stephen Miller

'Fire and Fury' Is 'Grotesque' and 'Fiction': Stephen Miller

Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins discusses this.

Miller became unhinged quickly, prompting Jake Tapper to state the obvious: he was putting on a performance for an audience of one: President Donald Trump. Take a look at just a little bit of the exchange between the two men here.

"I see sections of the book where events I participated in are described, and I have 1st-hand knowledge, as they're described, they're completely and utterly fraudulent".

Stephen Miller: Which, because it happens to be a true statement.

Miller called Tapper "condescending".

MILLER: No, because you have. "I am offended. I'm offended by you and I'm offended by your network". I'll tell you why I'm attacking you.

Don't answer the question.

Stephen Miller, seen here on August 2, 2017, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that comments in a new book from former Trump aid Steve Bannon are "grotesque".

Miller is right to be questioning Wolff's book, of course. "It is, as Jake Tapper said, to be obsequious and humiliate yourself in hopes that the president will be excited". What you're being. No.

"The reality is that the president is a political genius who won against a field of 17 incredibly talented people, who took down the Bush dynasty, who took down the Clinton dynasty", Miller said.

Frustrated the interview is cut short by Tapper.

"You know he's watching", Wolff told Colbert as he joined the CBS host on stage, referring to Trump tuning in at home. When the interviewer interrupts, in an effort to get back on topic, angrily allege that you are being stopped from speaking "truth". Tapper went on to accuse Miller of trying to filibuster the program. What's even funnier about this entire clip, is that after the cameras stopped rolling is when things got even more insane.

It also raised doubts over his mental fitness for office, quoting senior officials who allegedly called the president "mentally unfit", and "idiot", and "like a child". The people who were present there, confirmed, at least, according to them, they've confirmed that, yes, he was removed by security.

Regardless, it seemed like Miller accomplished what Tapper insinuated that he was seeking.

White House adviser Stephen Miller battled CNN host Jake Tapper in an interview on January 7.

"This is a guy who made up a lot of stories to try and sell books", she told Fox News.

Donald Trump responded last week to the criticism by minimizing Bannon's contributions to his campaign and administration, saying Bannon had "lost his mind" and tweeting repeatedly about "Sloppy Steve".
