Stephen Miller Was Reportedly Escorted Off Jake Tapper's CNN Set by Security

After a contentious interview with CNN host Jake Tapper, White House adviser Stephen Miller refused to leave the set and had to be escorted out by security, according to Business Insider.

Miller's interview was abruptly stopped after he became belligerent and repeatedly attacked both Tapper and the network.

Tapper attempted to get answers on a host of issues related to Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House and the Steve Bannon controversy. But Miller repeated angry talking points and refused to answer questions.

The host accused Miller of putting on a show for President Donald Trump and said enough of the viewers' time had been "wasted" before cutting his mic.

Trump, oblivious to the irony, tweeted his praise of Miller shortly after the interview.
