  • Stephen Miller needed to be escorted off a CNN set on
    Sunday.
  • His appearance on “State of the Union” ended abruptly
    after host Jake Tapper pressed him on damaging claims about
    President Donald Trump.
  • Tapper said Miller was speaking “to an audience of
    one.”

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 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.

Miller’s appearance on the cable network quickly
went off the rails
when Tapper pressed him on explosive
claims about President Donald Trump that appeared in the book
Fire & Fury: Inside The Trump White House” by Michael
Wolff.

Miller repeatedly attempted to pivot the conversation toward
criticism of CNN, a favorite target of Trump’s. He then referred
to Trump as a “political genius” and lamented his treatment
during the interview, leading Tapper to reply that there was
only “one viewer you care about right now.”

“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, Trump tweeted, “Jake
Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with
Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration.”

The White House did not respond to Business Insider’s
request for comment.
