Things got heated quickly during Jake Tapper's "State of the Union" interview with White House adviser Stephen Miller. Tapper began by asking Miller questions about Steve Bannon and allegations made in Michael Wolff's controversial new book about the Trump White House. Miller began throwing insults at CNN and the host before Tapper chose to cut the interview short.

Stephen Miller: "Your network's been going 24/7 with all the salacious coverage. ... I know that it brings a lot of you guys a lot of joy to trying to stick the knife in."
Jake Tapper: "I get it. There’s one viewer that you care about right now and you're being obsequious and you’re being a factotum in order to please him... I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time."
