Stephen Miller Denies Getting Escorted Out of CNN by Security

Above a banner that read “CNN Bias Exposed,” White House adviser Stephen Miller sat down with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Monday night and responded to the reports that he was escorted out of CNN’s studio by security on Sunday morning following an extremely contentious interview with Jake Tapper. “Presumably you are not a physical threat, you are not armed,” Carlson told Miller. “Do you think if you have been, I don’t know, a member of MS-13 here illegally, that CNN would have had security pull you off the set?” Miller replied, “I would assume if I were a member of MS-13 here illegally they would be clamoring to get me into the voting booth,” before laughing and adding, “I think that like many things CNN says, this story has the most important virtue of all CNN stories of being not true.” Earlier in the day, a CBS reporter posted a leaked transcript of the argument between Miller and Tapper that ensued after the host cut their interview short. Miller notably did not dispute the legitimacy of the transcript, saying, “I was glad to have people hear what I said on-camera and off-camera,” before continuing to attack CNN’s “low journalistic standards.” Carlson did not ask Miller to give any examples of how the network has been “extraordinarily unfair” to the president.
