Stephen Miller, President Donald Trump’s top policy adviser, on Sunday eviscerated former White House colleague Stephen Bannon over comments attributed to him in a new book, calling him an “angry, vindictive person” whose “grotesque comments are so out of touch with reality.”
Miller said the “whole White House staff is deeply disappointed in his comments” in “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” a scathing tell-all by Michael Wolff that paints Trump as unprepared for the presidency and portrays his aides as concerned about his performance.
“It reads like an angry, vindictive person spouting off to a highly discredible author,” Miller told host Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“The book is best understood as a work of poorly written fiction. The author is a garbage author of a garbage book. … The betrayal of the president in this book is so contrary to the reality of those who work with him,” Miller continued.
