Senior aide to the president Stephen Miller got into a heated exchange with Jake Tapper Sunday morning on CNN. Afterward, he then reportedly refused to leave the set of State of the Union.

Two sources told Business Insider that after Tapper ended the segment, Miller was too agitated to leave.

Two sources close to the situation told Business Insider that after the taping was done Miller was asked to leave several times.

He ignored those requests and ultimately security was called and he was escorted out, the sources said.

The report was corroborated by a CBS producer on Twitter.

The reports come after Tapper told Miller he was wasting viewers’ time during a contentious argument over claims made in Michael Wolff’s explosive new book, Fire and Fury.

However, how you felt about the exchange really comes down to where you land on the aisle. Somehow, both sides are claiming victory. Those on the left gleefully cheered the sheer ownage of Miller by Tapper.

But people on the right watched the interview and saw something completely different.

That was a sentiment publicly echoed by the president.
