Trump Adviser's Interview Cut Short By Jake Tapper After He Gets Too Riled Up

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

They say when you find yourself in a pool of quicksand the best thing to do is stop moving and stay calm. The more you thrash about, the quicker you will sink. Someone should tell this to Donald Trump and his administration. 

On Sunday, White House adviser Stephen Miller appeared on CNN's State of the Union with Jack Tapper to do damage control following the release of Michael Wolff's damming book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House and a series of embarrassing tweets from Trump.

It didn't take long for the discussion between Miller and Tapper to veer off course. It was clear from the start that Miller had one agenda: try and make Trump look like a "political genius." It didn't work and Tapper soon grew weary of Miller's attempts to sidetrack the conversation with regurgitated talking points while avoiding questions.
