Steve Bannon Issues Apology as Trump Allies Flood the Airwaves

Tapper had to prematurey conclude the interview stating, "I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time".

Pressing Miller on the latter topic, Tapper rattled off several issues Bannon had a hand in, such as the Muslim travel ban and the decisions to pull out of the Paris climate accord and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

When Tapper returned from commercial break, the journalist began the second part of his show by saying, 'Welcome back to State of the Union and planet Earth'.

Miller, a Duke graduate, had previously battled CNN's Jim Acosta over President Trump's immigration policy.

US President Donald Trump defends tweets describing himself as a "stable genius" and slams "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff.

"I would have been delighted to have written a contrarian account here: Donald Trump, this unexpected President is actually going to succeed", Mr Wolff said.

"It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive", said Miller. Miller was there to trash the book and its sources, namely Steve Bannon, ousted from the Trump Train and recently spurned by his original patrons, the billionaire Mercers.

Tapper wanted to know if Miller had any first-hand knowledge of the now-president meeting with the Russians who visited in Manhattan office building in June 2016.

In a statement issued to news website Axios on Sunday, Mr Bannon said that Trump's eldest son Donald Trump jnr was a "patriot and a good man", and that he believed Trump "was the only candidate that could have taken on and defeated the Clinton apparatus" in the 2016 presidential election.

"(Bannon's) role has been greatly exaggerated, whereas the President hasn't gotten the due that he deserves for the movement that he put together to tap into the kinds of people whose life concerns don't get a lot of attention on CNN", Miller said.

Miller grew incensed and accused Tapper of being "condescending", and the two started talking over each other.

Trump's perception was curious, because Miller had not "destroyed" Tapper.

Those close to Bannon said that as the controversy unfolded, he seemed eager to find a way to try to fix his relationship with the president.

Miller followed up by bashing CNN even more, but Tapper had finally had enough. 'There is one viewer that you care about right now.

During the contentious interview, Miller offered largely combative responses and focused on presenting Trump as a "political genius," repeatedly refusing to answer questions until Tapper made a decision to cut him off and move to the next segment.

"Thank you, Stephen", Tapper said.
