After heated interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Stephen Miller reportedly had to be escorted off set

White House adviser Stephen Miller's interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday ended abruptly, but his exit was another story.

Miller, one of President Trump's most vocal defenders, spent most of his time on State of the Union trying to deflect from the damaging new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, while also criticizing CNN and Tapper. After letting him go on for several minutes, Tapper cut Miller off and quickly ended the segment, saying "there's one viewer that you care about right now" and he was done wasting his viewers' time.

Two people with knowledge of the incident told Business Insider that Tapper may have been finished with Miller, but Miller wasn't ready to leave. He was asked nicely multiple times to leave, but Miller refused, and finally security had to be called to escort him outside. CNN declined to comment to Business Insider, while the White House pulled a Miller and ignored their requests.
