  • 'Fire and Fury' Is 'Grotesque' and 'Fiction': Stephen Miller

In the book, "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House", by Michael Wolff, Mr. Bannon said Mr. Trump had "lost his stuff", and he described the meeting with Russians attended by Donald Trump Jr. and the president's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as potentially treasonous.

Miller replied, "Steve Bannon's eloquence in that description notwithstanding, it's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments, so out of touch with reality and obviously so vindictive".

"But there was a clip at the end where Tapper was trying to ask Miller several questions and Miller, all he would do was just lavish the president with effusive personal praise to the point where Tapper said you're only speaking to an audience of one right now". The interview became so contentious that Tapper cut the interview short and said Miller was wasting his viewers' time.

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 chose to cut him off and move to the next segment.

Tapper pushed back on that claim, noting how many people from the White House are quoted, on the record, in Wolff's book.

"The book is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction, and I also will say that the author is a garbage author of a garbage book", Miller said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

However, van Dijk's insistence on leaving - he was left out of the squad for the 5-2 Boxing Day loss to Tottenham - has forced Southampton's hand.


"Leaving Camp David for the White House".

Trump again slammed the book on Twitter Sunday morning and appeared to reference questions raised about the mental fitness of former President Ronald Reagan, who disclosed in 1994 that he had Alzheimer's disease. "This is alarming in every way", Mr. Wolff said, adding, "This is worse than everybody thought".

Mr Wolff, however, maintained that it was not his initial intention to write a book critical of Mr Trump.

"I've had to put up with the Fake News from the first day I announced that I would be running for President".

In rare Sunday-show appearances, CIA Director Mike Pompeo said he's found the president "engaged" and an avid consumer of the intelligence agency's daily briefing. "We talk about some of the most serious matters facing America and the world, complex issues. He asks really hard questions of our team at C.I.A".

"The President's tweets absolutely reaffirm the plainspoken truth: A self-made billionaire revolutionized reality TV and tapped into something magical that's happening in the hearts of this country", Miller said. "And if that's what he said, then shame on Steve Bannon because that is so out of bounds to accuse somebody of treason", Lewandowski said.
