This is the unfortunate state of discourse between the news media and the White House. Senior Advisor Stephen Miller was dispatched to appear on CNN’s State of the Union with Jake Tapper this morning for one purpose and for an audience of one person, Donald Trump. If Miller’s goal was to look foolish, mission accomplished. To say the interview was contentious would be an understatement. Trump was watching and tweeted his reaction:
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!

How sad when the bully sends out his minions to start a fight. How sad for our country that it’s come to this. The Michael Wolff book has really touched a nerve and Trump only knows one way to respond.
