Did you see the interview Jake Tapper had with Stephen Hayes?
Jake Tapper got raked over the coals.
According to AOL, Steve Miller had to be escorted from the set under armed security.
White House adviser Stephen Miller was escorted off the set of CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday after a contentious interview with host Jake Tapper.
Two sources close to the situation told Business Insider that after the taping was done, Miller was politely asked to leave several times.
He ignored those requests and ultimately security was called and he was escorted out, the sources said.
CNN declined to comment on this story.
Miller’s handling of Tapper was masterful. He did what I’ve recommended to my radio show listeners do, and that’s refer to President Trump as a “genius”.
This sets off the Left, and that’s exactly what happened with Tapper.
Tapper asked Miller to comment on the fake news work of fiction, “Fire & Fury: Inside The Trump White House” by Michael Wolff. Instead of taking the bait, Miller called CNN fake news for even entertaining the nonsense in that book.
But he then referred to Trump as a “political genius”. Tapper snidely commented there was only “one viewer you care about right now,” referencing the President.
Later in the broadcast, Tapper finally said,
“I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen,” Tapper said, bringing the interview to an abrupt end.
Shortly after the interview ended, President Trump tweeted,
“Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration.”
But that wasn’t the end. Because Tapper knew he had gotten his butt kicked. And he was livid.
I know that feeling, as I have seen how Leftists reacted after I had given them a brutal beatdown on camera. They snort around the green room like enraged bulls, thinking of all the things they wish they would have said.
It would have worked out no differently.
Anyway, rumor is that Tapper went ballistic. Here’s a tweet of his supposed reaction.

CNN actually put out an article about this interview in order to ease the ass-kicking the network experienced.
It was titled: The 24 most grotesque lines from Jake Tapper’s Stephen Miller interview. The number denotes Miller’s comment, and below CNN’s laughable commentary by Chris Cillizza:
- “And the tragic thing about this book …”
Again, none of this is a tragedy. People dying in an earthquake or a fire or a terrorist attack is a tragedy. A book about the palace intrigue in the White House is not a tragedy.
- “I saw a man who was a political genius, somebody who we would be going down, landing, in descent there would be a breaking news development. And in 20 minutes, he would dictate 10 paragraphs of new material to address that event …”
This is interesting. Miller’s idea of political genius is someone who is able to rapidly process breaking information and incorporate it into his basic appeal to voters. Which, I would agree with, is a kind of genius that most very, very successful politicians possess.
Not to take anything away from Miller, but I can only imagine how badly I would destroy Tapper, if this is all it took to send the man over the edge.
