CNN's Jake Tapper has been holding Trump and his administration to the fire. He is one of the few journalists that does not allow any Trump' spox to bloviate using up all the time without answering questions. Tapper shows how one deals with Trump apologist. Kick them out if they refuse to answer.
RawStory reported the following the following.
CNN host Jake Tapper abruptly ended an interview with White House staffer Stephen Miller after the Trump aide began shouting about a new tell-all book that casts the White House in a bad light. During an interview that aired on Sunday, Tapper accused Miller of filibustering instead of answering questions that have been raised by Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
Tapper noted that President Trump had recently called himself a “stable genius” in response to Wolff’s book, which alleges that the president is not fit to serve. “It happens to be a true statement,” Miller shot back. “I’m sure he’s watching and he’s happy you said that,” a frustrated Tapper said.
Jake Tapper excellent response to Trump's spox
But it gets better. Business Insider reported the that after Jake Tapper cut off the Miller interview, he refused to leave. Security had to escort him out.
White House adviser Stephen Miller was escorted off the set of CNN’s "State of the Union" on Sunday after a contentious interview with host Jake Tapper.
Two sources close to the situation told Business Insider that after the taping was done, Miller was asked to leave several times. He ignored those requests and ultimately security was called and he was escorted out, the sources said. CNN declined to comment.
It seems like America will be living through this pathetic comedy for the foreseeable future. Voting in 2018 is more important than ever. Repairing the damage caused by Trump and his ilk will take much longer to repair than it took to destroy.
