Former U.S. Rep. David Jolley (R-FL) slammed President Donald Trump's adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday after Miller's toadyish tantrum on CNN forced anchor Jake Tapper to " rel="noopener" target="_blank">cut him off and end the segment early -- a move that earned plaudits for Tapper.

Jolley said that the current rift between Trump and former adviser Steve Bannon will heal and the two will head into the 2018 midterms as a team, especially now that Bannon has rolled over and offered a groveling apology to Trump for the things he said in Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.

Anchor David Gura played video from Miller's CNN segment, to which Jolley said, "Stephen Miller is the one person in this White House, through loyalty and sycophancy who can fill Steve Bannon's shoes and he knows that."

"The Stephen Miller interview was for an audience of one, Donald Trump," said Jolley.
