CNN host Jake Tapper's highly contentious interview with White House senior adviser Stephen Miller garnered attention on Sunday after Tapper cut Miller off during the heated exchange. 

"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, OK,” Tapper told Miller, who was defending the president.

"And I think I’ve wasted enough of my viewers’ time. Thank you, Stephen,” he said. 

Miller had been defending Trump and blasting the network's coverage of the president.

“Not only do I think they help it, but I think in the toxic environment that you've created here and CNN and cable news, which is a real crisis of legitimacy for your network,” Miller said.

The interview elicited a plethora of reactions and debate online on Sunday, including a tweet from the president saying Tapper had been "destroyed" during the interview. 

Tapper quickly responded to the tweet, telling viewers to judge the interview for themselves. 

The interview garnered reactions from conservatives, liberals and journalists online. 

 

  

  

  

  

Sunday's interview is the latest example of the strained relationship between the Trump administration and CNN. 

The president has frequently taken aim at the network, dubbing it "fake news."

CNN, in turn, has fired back at the White House, launching a "facts first" ad campaign last year.
