'I Think I've Wasted Enough of My Viewers' Time.' Jake Tapper Cuts Off Interview With White House Aide

In an exceedingly tense interview Sunday morning, a top White House aide continued to deride a new book about the Trump administration while simultaneously downplaying Steve Bannon's role in it and defending President Trump's tweets about his intelligence.

CNN's Jake Tapper, who was conducting the interview with White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller, cut the conversation off after 12 and a half minutes, telling Miller he was spewing rhetoric solely to gain approval from the President.
