CNN's Jake Tapper Ends Interview Segment As Trump Spox Stephen Miller Becomes Unhinged On-Air


Stephen Miller. the oh-so-condescending pet of Donald Trump, made an appearance this morning on CNN's State of the Union with Jake Tapper thinking he would show the world how he could own Tapper.

But in the end, Miller only confirmed his status as Trump's petulant postulant for impertinent fool.

From the beginning, Miller almost appears drunk or stoned swaying forward and back as he spoke in an odd, slow cadence using his biggest and bestest hyperbolic adjectives wherever he could fit them in.

While the appearance was meant to discuss Michael Wolff's explosive new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, clearly Miller came in with the scripted talking points the White House has been pushing of late: conquered 17 Republicans in the primary, brought down the Bush "dynasty" and Clinton "dynasty," brilliant, brilliant, blah blah blah.

Miller also got in some shots at CNN:

Miller: “You get 24 hours of negative anti-Trump hysterical coverage on this network.”

Tapper: “I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical.”


Eventually, Miller became unhinged telling Tapper that HE was condescending. Tapper finally had had enough of Miller and closed the segment while Miller was still talking:

“I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you’re being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him, okay. And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen."

Annnnnnd, scene.

Bonus points to Tapper for the effortless inclusion of the word "obsequious."

If you can't stomach 12 minutes of Miller, here's the very end as Tapper dismisses him:



I really encourage you to watch the full performance below, though. It's pretty wild and wooly.


And just to confirm Miller's boss was watching:
