During a news conference from Camp David Saturday, President Trump once again railed against Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, calling the book a "work of fiction" and denying ever granting Wolff an interview or allowing him in the Oval Office. "Watch the hatred and unfairness of this CNN flunky!"
Tapper denied that anyone at CNN was "trying to stick knives" into Trump.
Bannon said in the statement that his support for the president and for Trump's agenda is "unwavering", adding that his comments about the Russian meeting had been aimed at Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager at the time of the meeting, rather than Trump Jr. CNN reported that Trump Jr. was sent the email on September 4, 2016, days before a trove of stolen emails were publicly released.
"That was a huge embarrassment for your network", Miller said of the incident.
"It's tragic and unfortunate that Steve would make these grotesque comments so out of tough with reality and obviously so vindictive", Miller told Tapper.

"His role has been greatly exaggerated whereas the President hasn't gotten the due for he deserves for the movement that he put together to tap in to the kinds of people whose life concerns don't get a lot of attention on CNN", said Miller. Tapper finally interjected. "And I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time".
'I'm sure he's watching, and he's happy that you said that, ' Tapper shot back.
When Tapper got to the president's mental fitness, Miller turned it into a full-on slap of CNN, saying there was a "crisis of legitimacy" and a "toxic environment" at the network. On Twitter, Trump insisted that he was a "very stable genius" in defense of some critics speculating about his mental health.
