(National Sentinel) This is CNN: Top presidential advisor Stephen Miller went toe-to-toe with CNN host Jake Tapper on Saturday during a discussion about President Donald J. Trump’s mental fitness and a new book about his White House that has left many critics questioning its veracity.
During the interview, Miller slammed the network’s coverage of the president, citing instances where CNN‘s reporting about the White House and Russian “collusion” was false.
Miller also said the network was incapable of reaching the tens of millions of Americans who voted for the president based on his “America first” policies.
Tapper asked about Steve Bannon’s involvement in the Trump campaign and presidency.
Miller responded, “I think that what the point is that his role has been greatly exaggerated, whereas the president hasn’t gotten the due that he deserves for the movement he put together to tap into the kinds of people whose life concerns don’t get a lot of attention on CNN.
“Not a lot of hours of coverage on this TV talking about the working class construction workers who have lost their jobs to foreign labor,” he continued.
“There is not a lot of coverage on this TV about the people getting slaughtered in sanctuary cities. You don’t do a lot of human interest stories about immigrant communities under siege from MS-13,” Miller noted.
“He tapped into a reality that is happening in this country that is not covered on this network. And I know you think I’m interrupting you, but I think the American people deserve to have two or three minutes of the truth.”
Next Tapper also asked about Trump’s tweets declaring that he is a “very stable genius,” in response to Democrat and media attacks on his mental fitness.
Tapper asked, “Do you think tweets like that help or hurt the cause that the president is stable and up for the job?”
“Not only do I think they help it, but I think in the toxic environment you’ve created here in CNN and cable news, which is a crisis of legitimacy for your network, and we saw it, of course, with the extremely fake news that you reported about the Don Jr. and Wikileaks story,” Miller responded.
“That was a huge embarrassment for your network. Just like the huge embarrassment you had when you got the Comey testimony wrong.”
Later, a clearly upset Tapper accused Miller of “not answering the questions.”
“You have 24 hours a day of anti-Trump material and you’re not going to give three minutes for the American people…”
At that, Tapper cut off Miller, saying, “I get it. There’s one viewer you care about right now and you’re being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him, okay? I think I wasted enough of my viewers’ time.”
