White House aide Stephen Miller was reportedly escorted out of the building by CNN security after Jake Tapper was forced to cut his interview with Miller short on Sunday.
Business Insider reports that Miller was asked to leave the set several times during a commercial break, but he refused.
Security officers were called in to escort him from the premises.
Miller devoted the majority of his interview on “State of the Nation” attacking the network and refusing to answer the host’s questions.
As a frustrated Tapper began to ask Miller about questions that have been raised by Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House, the guest complained that the network attacks Trump “24/7”.
“You have 24 hours of negative anti-Trump hysterical coverage on this network!” Miller shouted. “Viewers are entitled to have three minutes of the truth! Why don’t you just give me three minutes to tell you about the Donald Trump that I know.”
“Because it’s my show and I don’t want to do that,” Tapper fired back. “Stephen, settle down, calm down.”
Tapper was then forced to end the interview as Miller refused to answer his questions.
“Okay, you’re not answering the questions,” Tapper said. “I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you’re being obsequious because you’re trying to please him. I’ve wasted enough of my viewers time.”
Tapper cut off Miller and tossed to a commercial break.
