Bannon Issues Apology for Attack on Trump's Son

In addition to assailing Mr. Bannon, Mr. Miller sharply criticized Mr. Wolff and his book, saying it "is best understood as a work of very poorly written fiction".

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

A senior aide to U.S. President Donald Trump on Sunday assailed a new book rattling the White House, called his boss a genius and launched an attack on news coverage before a TV anchor urged him to calm down and cut off their interview.

The White House has been on the defensive since excerpts of the book were published last week with the president and his aides scrambling to discredit both its portrayal of Trump and the author's methods. As Tapper tried to move on to specific questions, like the president's recent comments about Steve Bannon, Miller interrupted to praise Trump for everything that he accomplished in the 2016 election.

"I get it. There's one viewer you care about right now", Tapper said, referring to Trump.

Earlier this week, Dana Rohrabacher, the Republican Congressman from California who is a steadfast Trump supporter, spent most of his airtime on CNN scolding anchorwoman Ana Cabrera for the channel's coverage of Trump, while avoiding questions about the FBI's investigation into Russian meddling in the last USA presidential election.

"Welcome back to planet Earth", Tapper said to viewers after the show returned.

Palestinian teen filmed slapping and kicking Israeli soldiers is arrested
The Israeli army said in a statement the Palestinian girl was arrested for participating in "violent riots" in her village. The video of her confrontation with the soldiers was widely shared by pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian activists on the web.

"I'm getting to the issue of your fitness", was Miller's riposte.

Mr Wolff said members of the Trump White House speak openly about the option, saying things like: "We're not at a 25th Amendment level yet", or "Ok, this is a little 25th Amendment".

'Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration, ' Trump wrote. He urged his followers to "watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!" "I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time", Tapper said before shifting to another topic.

But Tapper responded: "The president has an approval rating in the 30s, I don't know what's magical that you're talking about".

Extracts from Fire and Fury have raised questions about Trump's mental health, which in turn led to the former reality TV star to tweet he was a "very stable genius".

Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press", Wolff said he was given access to the White House in the early months of Trump's term, and that his "goal was to keep going until somebody said go away". "You're being obsequious, you're being a factotum in order to please him, OK? Thank you, Stephen", Tapper said.
