Trump’s White House is doing a pitiful job of damage control following the release of Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury. Trump’s initial response to the book only bolstered demand and led to the early release of the book that’s overflowing with dirt on Trump.
Trump minion Stephen Miller entered a warzone by appearing on CNN to discuss the media’s “unfair” coverage of Trump with Jake Tapper.
After listening to Miller’s biased pro-Trump argument, Tapper decided to cut the interview short, saying, “I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time.”
The camera then cut away from a rambling Stephen Miller while Tapper changed the subject. According to insider reports, Miller refused to leave the set once the cameras were done rolling.
CNN staff reportedly asked him to leave, but he wouldn’t budge. CNN security then physically removed him from the set and escorted him out of the building.
CNN’s Chris Cillizza later compiled a list of Miller’s “24 most grotesque lines” from his interview with Tapper.
One Miller quote reads: “I also will say that the author is a garbage author of a garbage book.”
President Trump attempted to salvage Miller’s reputation in the tweet below. Donald also called out “flunky” Tapper’s apparent “hatred and unfairness.”
Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!

As Fox News host Chris Wallace said, the Trump team forgot to take “Damage Control 101” because they are doing an awful job of containing this mess.
