Bannon Apologizes for Role in Book Critical of White House

'Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration, ' Trump wrote.

Watch the clip above, via CNN.

UPDATE: Miller's boss approves of the interview.

It went downhill from there.

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller attacked a new book about the inner workings of President Donald Trump's White House as "grotesque" and "fiction" in a tense interview Sunday, NBC News reported.

Asked whether the president was aware of the meeting at the time, Miller said Bannon was not present and therefore "is not even a remotely credible source on any of it".

'It reads like an angry, vindictive person spouting off to a highly discredible author, ' Miller continued, pivoting to lash out at Wolff too. He labeled Wolff a "garbage author of a garbage book".

Mr. Trump returned back home to the White House Sunday morning following a retreat to Camp David with GOP leaders in Congress. So out of control was Miller that Tapper had to urge him to "settle down".

From there, the conversation was more about CNN.

Tapper denied that anyone at CNN was "trying to stick knives" into Trump.

Mr Wolff says his book is based on more than 200 interviews with the President and his senior staff over an 18-month period.

The "treasonous" statement was aimed not at Trump Jr. but "Paul Manafort, a seasoned campaign professional with experience and knowledge of how the Russians operate", he said. My support is also unwavering for the president and his agenda - as I have shown daily in my national radio broadcasts, on the pages of Breitbart News and in speeches and appearances from Tokyo and Hong Kong to Arizona and Alabama.

Conservative political operative Corey Lewandowski, who managed Trump's campaign from January 2015 to June 2016, was similarly disturbed by Bannon's critiques.

"The president is a political genius...who took down the Bush dynasty, who took down the Clinton dynasty, who took down the entire media complex", he said.

"And I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that", Tapper replied.

Miller called Tapper's comment "condescending" and said it was a 'snide remark, ' broadening that point to the whole of CNN. He accused the network of running anti-Trump material "24 hours a day". "And I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time".

Miller was on to address the controversial book Fire and Fury as well as statements made by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, AKA "Sloppy Steve". But after meeting with allies and advisers, he reportedly grew convinced that things would only get worse unless he did.

And responding to Trump's Twitter claim that he is a "very stable genius", Miller stood by his man, repeatedly asserting that the president speaks the truth.

'The president has an approval rating in the 30s, ' the journalist said. "He won't tell you that, but he knows it".

The two squabbled for a minute more, before Tapper had had enough.

"I'm around them all the time", Haley said.

"There's one viewer you care about right now", Tapper said, referring to Trump.
