(National Sentinel)Â This is CNN: Top presidential advisor Stephen Miller went toe-to-toe withÂ 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 whereÂ 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 Bannonâ€™s involvement in the Trump campaign and presidency.
Miller responded, â€œI think that what the point is that his role has been greatly exaggerated, whereas the president hasnâ€™t gotten the due that he deserves for the movement he put together to tap into the kinds of people whose life concerns donâ€™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.
â€œThere is not a lot of coverage on this TV about the people getting slaughtered in sanctuary cities. You donâ€™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 Iâ€™m interrupting you, but I think the American people deserve to have two or three minutes of the truth.â€
NextÂ Tapper also asked about Trumpâ€™s tweets declaring that he is a â€œvery stable genius,” in response to Democrat and media attacks on his mental fitness.
TapperÂ asked, â€œDo you think tweets like that help or hurt the cause that the president is stable and up for the job?â€
â€œNot only do I think they help it, but I think in the toxic environment youâ€™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.â€
Later, a clearly upset Tapper accused MillerÂ of â€œnot answering the questions.â€
â€œYou have 24 hours a day of anti-Trump material and youâ€™re not going to give three minutes for the American peopleâ€¦â€
At that, Tapper cut off Miller, saying, â€œI get it. Thereâ€™sÂ one viewer you care about right nowÂ andÂ youâ€™re being obsequious andÂ youâ€™re being a factotum in order to please him, okay? I think I wasted enough of myÂ viewersâ€™ time.â€
