Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, had to be escorted from the set of CNN’s State of the Union Sunday after refusing to leave following a contentious interview with Jake Tapper, according to Business Insider.

Miller was on the show discussing Steve Bannon’s comments in Michael Wolff’s new explosive book on the Trump presidency, “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.” 

Tapper's interview turned combative as Miller ripped "garbage author of a garbage book" – and as the CNN host questioned the truth in the book's details and the role of Bannon in the White House.

Miller criticized CNN for its coverage, praised Trump and also ripped into Bannon: "It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive, and the whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments, which were grotesque," Miller told Tapper before the conversation unraveled.

When Miller continued with his support of the president, Tapper cut him off saying "I get it: There's one viewer that you care about right now [referring to Trump], and you're being obsequious in order to please him. I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time."

Miller was asked to leave several times but refused, so security was called to escort him out.
