Stephen Miller, senior policy adviser for President Donald Trump, battled with CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper on Sunday during a lengthy discussion on a myriad of topics. "I've wasted enough of my viewers' time".
As for Steve Bannon, Miller said that his role was "greatly exaggerated" within the White House and that "It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive".
President Trump applauded 32-year-old Stephen Miller for completing the two-pronged mission of going on CNN and yelling at Jake Tapper for the network's Trump coverage - while criticizing the president's newest enemy, Steve Bannon, as well.
When Tapper tried to get him back on track to talk about the meeting, Miller replied, 'I have no knowledge of anything to do with that meeting'. Following Miller's praise of Trump, Tapper remarked: "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that".
Miller followed up by bashing CNN even more, but Tapper had finally had enough.
Miller responded by saying that the tweets not only helped him, but they perfectly combatted the "toxic environment" created by "CNN and cable news".

Authorities have also blocked access to Instagram and the messaging app Telegram to try to damp down the protests. Iran has seen its largest anti-government protests since the disputed presidential election in 2009.
"I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical", Mr. Tapper responded.
When the interview turned to Mr. Trump's recent tweet declaring himself a "very stable genius", Mr. Miller again attacked CNN's reporting.
"Okay, you're not answering the questions", Tapper said.
Tapper was forced to treat Miller as a child, telling him, "Stephen, settle down, settle down". "You're being obsequious, you're being a factotum in order to please [Trump]". Miller focused on edifying Trump's "political genius", until Tapper ultimately cut him off for refusing to cooperate.
Miller refused to answer serious questions about the New York Times report that special counsel Robert Mueller, who is heading the Russian Federation investigation, has in his possession a letter outlining the president's reasoning for firing former FBI Director James Comey - which Miller reportedly had a hand in drafting.
Miller is infamous for delivering a chilling defense of President Trump in the first weeks of his tenure, telling Americans, "Our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned".
