Tapper to Trump adviser: Settle down - CNN Video
White House adviser Stephen Miller got into a heated exchange with CNN's Jake Tapper as Tapper asks Miller a question about former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon's role in the Trump...

His tweet came after a contentious interview between Tapper and senior White House adviser Stephen Miller.
Tapper cut off the interview with Miller, accusing the adviser of being "obsequious."

“I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him, OK,” Tapper said on "State of the Union," appearing to reference the president.

“And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen,” Tapper added as he ended the interview.

After the interview, Trump tore into Tapper, referring to him as a "flunky."

"Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration. Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!" Trump tweeted.

Favreau shared Trump's tweet, saying: "What'd I tell you."

Trump last week tweeted that he would announce the recipients of the "awards" on Monday.

The more I hear from and see Miller the better I like him. He is very bright and pulls no punches. Eventually the left will quit inviting him onto their shows.

I think I somehow screwed up the OP, the quote was attributed to Jon Favreau.
His post as follows.

Reminds me of Peggy Noonan in a way, where she wrote some brilliant pieces for Reagan, only to turn out to be a shill for the Establishment.
Though, I 'm starting to view Miller in a better light than Noonan. :biggrin:

Fake Crapper, thank you very much.  Though Cake Crapper is appealing too.

Maybe Favreau is an example of an emerging move by the lefties who are starting to feel less hopey about being part of a childish, retarded movement that's getting roundly destroyed.  They've been getting trounced pretty heavily for the last 12 months, and it seems to be picking up steam lately.

Maybe some of the 'resistance' is smartening up just enough to save themselves.

Yep, that's exactly what it looks like, CYA all the way.

Seems like some of them are actually saying "hey, I think I want to be on his team".

Can you imagine what it must be like, to be a starving writer and suddenly the DNC calls and asks if you'd write for them?
The soulless have nothing to lose when selling themselves to the Devil. But this guy could be a wealth of information for the Trump team.

My guess is that this Jon Favreau dude was being a smart ass, though he's too sly for his own good because it "reads" like we'all think its reads.

We need to start documenting cases of TDS and those who have recently been "cured" of TDS.

Is this a "Cure?"

This is what happened after the cameras quit rolling.

"Jake, what I care about is having three minutes to tell the truth about the president of the United States," Miller said to Tapper after "State of the Union" cut to commercial.

"You had plenty of time,” Tapper said. “I let you give like a three-minute filibuster at the very top.”

"You gave me two minutes," Miller shot back, later adding, "You should be ashamed of yourself. Honestly."

“This is the reason they don’t put you out on TV,” Tapper said. “OK? This is the reason.”

“You spent the entire interview attacking CNN ... OK, so don’t act all offended," the host added later in the exchange.

“I’m not acting offended,” Miller said. “I am offended. I’m offended by you and I’m offended by your network.”

Miller reportedly was escorted off the set by CNN security after refusing to leave after that.

One of the things I've heard is that the MSM just can't stand losing the ability to tell the POTUS what's important, and how he should fit into the MSM- created narrative.  All the way down to controlling the pressers and town halls and so on.

They apparently don't know how to exist in a world without all that.  The exact world that Trump has created and dropped on their heads.

That's probably the biggest source of the hate.  Not even the politics.  The loss of their selfish, special little selves.

And guys like Miller, Bannon, Kelly, just roll over them with this new reality.  Must burn like Holy Water.
