CNN anchor Jake Tapper threw a public temper tantrum on live television over the weekend, screaming at senior Trump advisor Stephen Miller before cutting off his microphone and having security guards remove him from the premises.
Tapper and Miller were sparring over “grotesque” allegations in Michael Wolff’s recent book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” most of which focused on the President’s “mental stability.”
“The book is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction,” Miller said; adding that President Trump was a “political genius” who managed to deliver one of the greatest political upsets in American history.
“You can be as condescending as you want. It’s part of your MO,” the Trump advisor added.
Tapper fired-back, demanding Miller “settle down” and “calm down” before cutting off his microphone and demanding he be removed from the studio.
“I think the viewers right now can ascertain who is being hysterical,” Tapper said.
