CNN’s Jake Tapper is one of many mainstream media charlatans who is still pretending as if they have a shred of credibility left with the American people. Tapper is perhaps not the worst of the Purveyors of Fake News, but he may be the most arrogant. Every day, this fool goes on his show and masquerades as some sort of objective journalist, making a mockery of both himself and his chosen profession. That would be enough to earn him a lifetime of disdain; when he uses that phony platform to start preaching ethics and morality to President Trump…it’s a bridge too far.
On Sunday, Tapper mounted his high horse once again, apparently angry that Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out a video montage of Joe Biden creepily touching and sniffing children throughout a lifetime in politics. Using Obama’s recent commencement-address criticism as a jumping-off point, Tapper teed off on the president.
“The criticism from Obama comes at a time when President Trump and his team are launching an unprecedented smear campaign against any rival,” Tapper said in his Sunday monologue. “Leveling wild and false allegations against critics in the media and political rivals that range from bizarre false conspiracy theories to spreading false allegations of pedophilia to even suggesting one TV anchor committed murder. These smear campaigns are unmoored from reality. They’re deranged and indecent and seem designed to distract from us from this horrific health and economic crisis.”
That’s a mouthful. It would almost come off as a respectable tongue lashing…if the lasher weren’t someone like Jake Tapper…working for a cesspool of corruption like CNN.
This is a man who has polluted the airwaves for the last four years with mountains of fake evidence supposedly tying Donald Trump to Russian interference in the 2016 election. Upon learning, via the Mueller Report, that this was every bit the made-up hoax that Trump’s supporters said it was from the beginning, did Tapper come on the air and apologize for shoveling fiction for the better part of Trump’s presidency? No, far from it. Before the ink was dry on the Mueller Report, Tapper was one of many who pivoted seamlessly from Russia to Ukraine, delivering viewers a nonstop supply of fresh conspiracy.
Jake Tapper is not a journalist, and he is in no way an expert on anything. He is a smear merchant of the lowest order. For him to even comment on anyone else’s ethics or morals is a tragic joke.
