Miller was on State of the Union, hosted by Tapper, when the interview ventured toward Trump's recent tweet about his mental stability, a tweet most likely inspired by the recent release of the Michael Wolff tell-all White House book Fire and Fury.
Miller said Tapper was being "condescending" and described CNN's coverage of the Trump administration as "hysterical" and "toxic" when Tapper asked about whether Trump was mentally fit to serve in the Whtie House.
As Miller tried to talked further about the "real experience of Donald Trump", Tapper said that Miller "was being a factotum in order to please him". After Tapper cut the interview short, Donald Trump chose to chime [VIDEO] in on social media.More news: LG to add Google's Assistant and Amazon' Alexa to all 2018 TVs
Mr Bannon went on in his statement to say he regretted waiting five days to say something, and called Mr Wolff's reporting "inaccurate". The book contains a number of explosive allegations, including former strategist Steve Bannon's claim that Trump met with Russian lawyers during his presidential campaign, as well as details of the president's penchant for eating cheeseburgers in bed. "And I know you think I'm interrupting you, but I think the american people deserve to have two or three minutes of the truth".
Wolff's book portrays the 45th president as a leader who doesn't understand the weight of his office and whose competence is questioned by aides.
Tapper interrupted Miller there, saying, "I'm sure he's watching and he's happy that you said that".
"Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad s***, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the Federal Bureau of Investigation immediately". "Thank you, Stephen", then turned away from Miller - who was still talking - to tersely announce the next guest. "I hope I expanded his thinking... but I think he probably would be where he is today without me as well", Spencer said, according to The Daily Beast. So, probably, unlikely that Stephen Miller is going to be invited back on to Jake Tapper's program.More news: Pilots Still Struggle to Land Planes at SFO
The president also blasted Tapper as a "CNN flunky".
Miller said the leak of this post-interview exchange is evident of CNN's "low journalistic standards". "The citizens who make this country run", Miller told Carlson.
Carlson, however, did reference a video which is known to exist of Miller and Tapper sparring after the segment ended during the commercial break, partial transcripts of which were leaked online Monday.
Tapper questioned Miller about Trump's Saturday tweetstorm, in which he seemed to think that calling himself "a very stable genius" would deflect the growing suspicions, exacerbated by Wolff's book, that the president is in some way mentally unwell.More news: CVS: "No plans to relocate Aetna"
