    CNN's Jake Tapper has been tapped to take over Chris Cuomo's old 9pm primetime slot - the latest in a series of sweeping changes enacted by the network as it looks to shed its perception of being too liberal.  Tapper, the outlet's lead Washington anchor, will man the hallowed timeslot through this year’s midterm elections, the network announced in a statement Thursday, starting October 10 and continuing until November 11. While temporary, the job - which was held by Cuomo until he was nixed for helping brother Andrew through his sexual misconduct scandal - could become permanent if Tapper, 53, draws viewers. Ratings for the hour have suffered since Cuomo's ousting last December, with the network failing to fill the slot long associated with the host, who is set to begin a new job anchoring for non-partisan network NewNation in October.  The slot has since been manned by a series of rotating hosts, but has failed to garner the numbers it did under 52-year-old Cuomo.  It also comes days after CNN announced a 'reimagined' morning show featuring Trump-hating anchor Don Lemon - despite new CEO...
    CNN host and Pennsylvanian Jake Tapper took the state’s Republican gubernatorial candidate to task for donning a Confederate army uniform. Tapper questioned comments made by Doug Mastriano about his Democratic nominee Josh Shapiro’s background, which he described as “elite.” The CNN host, who also went to the private Jewish parochial school in question, noted more than 60% of the students who attend receive tuition assistance. “Philadelphia has a ton of fancy prep schools,” Tapper said, but his school was not one of them. “The Catholic school down the street seemed more similar to our school,” Tapper continued. “Kids of people – some of them wealthy, some of them middle class, some more humble, many of them from families where both parents worked – from all over the area: New Jersey, Delaware, Philly, Pennsylvania, wanting their kids to get an education that included faith and ethics and morals. Is that bad, or is it only bad when those parochial schools aren’t Christian?” The host questioned Mastriano’s association with the alt-right social networking platform Gab, which is a haven for anti-Semites such...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper reportedly recorded a show in person earlier this month after testing positive for COVID-19, to the exasperation of some of his staffers. Tapper tested positive on May 9 shortly before his show, The Lead, was set to air and remained in the building to finish his show solo in a flash studio, sources told the Daily Beast. CNN has defended his actions, arguing he adhered to company protocol. CNN HOST WONDERS IF POOR CHILDREN ARE BETTER OFF ABORTED “When he was notified of the positive result, he asked CNN execs what to do and then followed it to the letter — he double-masked and isolated, did the show solo in a flash studio, and went home immediately after,” a spokesperson for CNN told the outlet. Colleague Dana Bash filled in for Tapper the following day, a Tuesday, and Tapper was back on air from an apparent makeshift home studio by Wednesday of that week. But some of the staffers were frustrated that Tapper remained in CNN's Washington, D.C., bureau as long...
    WARNING: Video contains graphic content Reporting from Lviv, Ukraine on Friday, CNN host Jake Tapper got emotional when covering a tragedy in Ukraine earlier in the day that left at least 50 people dead. Tapper gave viewers a warning before airing a graphic video showing the aftermath of a train station being attacked by Russian forces. Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense said more than 100 were injured in the missile attack. “The sheer panic, bodies being dragged away from the chaos, blood staining the streets,” Tapper said, describing the video of panicked families scrambling after the attack. Many of the families targeted in the train station missile attack were attempting to flee Ukraine as the conflict between the country and invading Russian forces has intensified. As they so frequently have, Russia once again denied involvement in the strike and even claimed Ukraine could be behind attacking their own people, a claim the Kremlin has tried making before. Tapper suggested such fantasies could be better sold if it were not for the media covering the conflict firsthand. “Our CNN reporters are spread...
    Love is in the airwaves!  At least, that’s what the marketing gurus at CNN‘s parent company Warner Media would have viewers believe, despite the network recently ousting former CEO Jeff Zucker over an inappropriate romance with a junior staffer.  A tweet sent on Monday to celebrate the day dedicated to love depicted Jake Tapper on the set of his Washington D.C. studio with the breaking news. 'This just in: love is in the air! #ValentinesDay. 'You stole my heart' could be seen as a caption running across the front of the card.  CNN parent company Warner Media sent a Valentine's Day greeting picturing star anchor Jake Tapper less than two weeks after CNN president Jeff Zucker resigned over an office romance A couple of hearts hung in the air to the left of Tapper in a sickly sweet Valentine’s Day greeting.  Although the timing for Valentine's Day was as timely as a news bulletin, the company may not be first in line when it comes to sharing the love, it coming less than two weeks after CNN‘s network boss...
    Sunday’s "State of the Union" featured a critique of President Biden’s withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan by CNN host Jake Tapper. A preview of Biden’s pre-Super Bowl interview aired on "NBC Nightly News" with Lester Holt on Thursday. In the segment, Biden admitted that he rejected the U.S. Army investigative report that argued the administration was not prepared to pull out troops from Afghanistan in August. CNN POLITICAL ANALYST SLAMS BIDEN’S RESPONSE TO INFLATION QUESTION: ‘A TERRIBLE ANSWER’  Taliban fighters pose for photograph in Wazir Akbar Khan in the city of Kabul, Afghanistan, Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021. (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul) (AP Photo/Rahmat Gul) "Yes, I am." Biden said. "I’m rejecting them." Despite the report, he also insisted that he was not told about the degree to which the White House was prepared to remove troops in Afghanistan and instead argued "there was no good time to get out." This answer did not appear to satisfy Tapper. "It’s difficult to overstate how insulting Biden’s sweeping rejection is to so many service members and veterans," Tapper said. "Given the full...

    Despite working for CNN, Jake Tapper defended Fox News reporter Peter Doocy after President Joe Biden got caught calling him a “stupid son of a bitch.”  Tapper joined Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night, during which the late-night host asked if his life is “boring” now that Donald Trump is out of office. “No, the current president just called someone a dumb son of a bitch today,” Tapper replied, prompting Kimmel to ask if Doocy really is a “dumb son of a bitch.” Instead of answering the question, Tapper defended the Fox News reporter, noting that he does not think “any president should be calling any journalist a dumb son of a bitch.” “And to be fair to Peter Doocy, the question was fairly anodyne,” he added. While Biden was taking photos in front of the media on Monday, Doocy asked the president if he thinks “inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” “It’s a great asset,” Biden said sarcastically, seemingly unaware that the microphone was on. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” Kimmel was surprised by Tapper’s defense...
    Jake Tapper recalled President Joe Biden’s infamous 2010 hot mic moment on Monday afternoon, just moments after the President called Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch. On CNN’s The Lead, Tapper recapped what had just taken place at the White House. “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms?” Doocy asked Biden. “It’s a great asset,” Biden said with sarcasm, seemingly unaware his microphone was on. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” Tapper told CNN viewers: Just in, President Biden lashing out at a reporter with some rather colorful language just moments ago during a meeting about inflation. Reporters peppered him Biden questions about Ukraine and growing increasingly frustrated with the line of questioning, he said this in response to a reporter’s question about inflation’s impact on the elections. We should note, the reporter is from Fox. When discussing the comment with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, Tapper recalled Biden’s infamous 2010 hot mic moment, in which he told former President Barack Obama that the passage of the Affordable Care Act was a “big fucking deal.” Collins noted that Doocy had shouted a question about...
    New York City Mayor Eric Adams has demoted his younger brother from deputy NYPD commissioner - a post that comes with a $240,000 salary - to a slightly less lucrative position of director of his security detail after facing accusations of nepotism.  Bernard Adams, 56, a retired NYPD sergeant who had spent the past decade overseeing parking at a Virginia university, will now serve as executive director of mayoral security, overseeing the unit that protects his brother's safety. He will earn $210,000 a year. In an interview with Jake Tapper on CNN's State of the Union on Sunday, the mayor vehemently defended his brother's appointment.   New York City Mayor Eric Adams, pictured in white, has demoted his younger brother, Bernard, seen at the lectern, from deputy NYPD commissioner deputy director of his security detail 'My brother is qualified for the position,' Adams declared. 'Number one, he will be in charge of my security, which is extremely important to me at a time when we see an increase in white supremacy and hate crimes.' Adams argued that his brother understands that as the...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper blasted Hollywood on Sunday during the State of the Union show for its silence on China’s human right abuses — after CNN has downplayed those same abuses and helped elect Joe Biden, who is compromised by China ties. As Yahoo! Entertainment noted: Jake Tapper put Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the NBA on blast during CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday for continuing business with China without question despite the human rights abuses by Xi Jinping’s administration. The anchor called on American businesses to follow the example of the Women’s Tennis Association, which canceled events it was scheduled to hold in China after tennis player Peng Shuai accused former Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli of sexually assaulting her. He contrasted this with the NBA continuing to hold events in the China while the International Olympic Committee drives forward on plans to hold the Beijing Winter Olympics in February even though officials with the IOC have said they have been in contact with Shuai. … “The millionaires and billionaires of Hollywood and the NBA and the IOC and Wall...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper blasted Republicans for their joyful exploitation of the tragic shooting incident involving Alec Baldwin on the set of the film, Rust. Last week, the actor was rehearsing a scene for the film when he fired a prop gun that held a live round. The shot killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. The incident is under investigation, though reports and court documents have suggested Baldwin was told the gun was safe to use before he fired it. The actor has also shared his “shock and sadness” over the accident. Tapper spoke about the tragedy in his closing monologue of State of the Union, commenting on the “heartbreak” surrounding Hutchins’ tragic death. “But there is something about our politics right now that is driving people away from our shared humanity,” he lamented. From there, Tapper called out Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO), GOP Senate candidate JD Vance, and other Republicans seizing upon the incident to crack political jokes at Baldwin’s expense. He also accused them of insensitively disregarding the sadness that Hutchins’ family is currently going through....
    CNN anchor Jake TapperJacob (Jake) Paul Tapper'Battered on trust, doubted on leadership': A 'brutal' poll for Biden shows no easy fix Overnight Defense & National Security — Pentagon chiefs to Congress: Don't default Senate poised to stave off debt crisis MORE blasted members of the Sackler family after their lawyers reportedly contacted the network and complained about how it covered the premier of a documentary series that accuses it of criminal behavior relative to the Opioid crisis in America.  "We here at CNN heard from attorneys representing the Sacklers. They took issue with a banner we ran that reflected this sentiment from writer Danny Strong about the purpose of the show Dopesick," Tapper said.  Tapper then played a clip of Strong, a showrunner on a new Hulu series focusing on the epidemic and the Sacklers alleged role in it from an appearance on his show on Wednesday. The Department of Justice (DOJ) moved to block Purdue Pharma’s controversial bankruptcy deal that shields members of the Sackler family from being sued in future opioid-related lawsuits. Under a proposed settlement, members of the Sackler family would give up...
    General Mark Milley faced a number of questions about his Trump administration actions during Tuesday’s Senate hearing on Afghanistan. To briefly recap, Bob Woodward and Robert Costa wrote in Peril that Milley was worried then-President Donald Trump’s actions could start war with China, so he called his Chinese counterpart to assure the U.S. would not attack. Per the Washington Post, Milley said, “I want to assure you that the American government is stable and everything is going to be okay,” and he reportedly “pledge[d] he would alert his counterpart in the event of a U.S. attack.” Milley defended his calls as “routine” and said they were meant to offer reassurances “in order to ensure strategic stability.” Some Republican senators grilled and excoriated Milley over those calls during Tuesday’s hearing. After the hearing, Woodward appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper and defended Milley’s actions. Tapper asked asked Woodward, “From your reporting, how close was the U.S. to some kind of military conflict?” “Milley’s whole point in this is that miscommunication is the seed of war,” Woodward responded. He noted what Milley...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper was besieged with reminders of scandal-ridden colleagues by critics after he tweeted about how society is unhealthy because of the low standards people have for members of Congress.  "We have higher standards for game show hosts than for Members of Congress, definitely a sign of a healthy society with its priorities in order," the outspoken anchor of "The Lead" tweeted.  This referenced the ongoing drama over who will replace beloved "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek, who died last year from cancer. The latest turn saw the firing of longtime executive producer Mike Richards, who had chosen himself as the new host but then was dropped from his job after past demeaning comments against women and other minorities came to light. Other potential replacements like actress Mayim Bialik have also been heavily scrutinized for their personal histories.  CNN ANALYST SLAMMED FOR BLAMING TRUMP FOR COLLAPSED REPUBLICAN TRUST IN NATIONAL MEDIA: ‘SIMPLY BREATHTAKING’  Critics were quick to point out Tapper's own network and the standards they have for their employees caught in recent scandals. CNN's chief legal analyst Jeffrey...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted White House national security advisor Jake Sullivan on Sunday over whether the United States will be able to complete evacuations from Kabul by the August 31st deadline. The deadline set by President Joe Biden is this Tuesday, and there’s serious concern about another attack in Kabul following the horrific one just days ago that killed 13 U.S. service members and dozens of Afghans. ISIS-K claimed responsibility for the attack, and on Friday the Pentagon said the military carried out an airstrike that killed two ISIS-K militants. “You and I both know there are Americans on the ground in Kabul right now who can’t get into the airport,” Tapper told Sullivan. “They can’t even reach it. There are legal permanent residents of the United States who can’t get out. There are Afghans who have the special immigrant visas who cannot get out. They’re obviously not all going to get out by the deadline. They just aren’t. So, what happens to them after Tuesday?” Sullivan said “we believe that we’re down to a population of 300 or fewer...
    Joe Biden's address to the nation was roundly criticized by U.S. media, with CNN's Jake Tapper pointing out that Biden said he took responsibility - and then blamed everyone else involved. On Fox News, commentator Ben Domenech said that it was a speech Biden could have given 'six months ago', while journalist Brit Hume said Biden's remarks 'did nothing to explain' the chaos. The president had been criticized for failing to address the country sooner. Kabul fell to the Taliban on Sunday. Tapper said that Biden was 'forced to speak to the nation after the calamity of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.' Jake Tapper, CNN anchor, on Monday evening criticized Joe Biden's Afghanistan speech
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper went to bat for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after she was criticized by his guest, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, during an interview.  On Sunday's "State of the Union," Collins expressed that she "fought very hard" for an outside, 9/11-style commission to look into the events of Jan. 6, something she argued would have had "far more credibility" than Pelosi's "partisan" select committee.  After noting that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., blocked the commission's approval, Tapper pushed back at Collins' "partisan" descriptor of Pelosi's committee, pointing out the inclusion of two CNN's favorites, Reps. Liz Cheney, R-Wy., and Adam Kinzinger, R-Il.  CNN'S JAKE TAPPER INSISTS HE'S ‘NOT A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT’ NOR ‘ADVOCATING FOR JOE BIDEN BE REELECTED' "Do you have faith in them?" Tapper asked about the anti-Trump GOP lawmakers.  "I respect both of them but I do not think it was right for the speaker to decide which Republicans should be on the committee," Collins responded. "Normally, if you have a select committee, the minority leader and the speaker get to pick the members."...
    Jewish journalist Eve Barlow called on CNN to bring on an authoritative voice to discuss what she called the far-left Squad's "problem with Jew hate" on Wednesday. "In response to Jake Tapper's interview with Ilhan Omar's free-spewing antisemitism on CNN last night, the same platform should be provided for a Jewish authoritative voice discussing the squad's problem with Jew hate," she wrote. Barlow's tweet came in the wake of Jake Tapper's Tuesday interview with Squad member Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who landed in hot water again this month when she equated Israel and the United States to terrorist organizations. Omar told Tapper she didn't regret the remarks and when asked if she understood why some fellow Democrats, some of them Jewish, found previous comments of hers about Israel to be anti-Semitic, Omar said they were not "partners in justice" or had been "engaging in seeking justice around the world." OMAR BLASTED FOR REMARKS ABOUT JEWS IN CONGRESS: ‘THIS IS WHAT A MODERN DAY MUSLIM SUPREMACIST LOOKS LIKE’ Omar initially backpedaled on her remarks this month accusing Israel and the U.S....
    Key figures across the establishment media have confirmed denying Republicans who voted against certifying the Electoral College results airtime is a daily routine on their broadcasts. CNN’s Jake Tapper recently said during a podcast interview on the New York Times’ “Sway” that he is engaging in the practice of not even inviting such Republicans on his show. “It’s not a policy, but it’s a philosophy where I just don’t want to deal with it,” Tapper said. He then added he’s willing to have only “about a third of the House Republican caucus” on his show. Ultimately, as Politico Playbook reported, this means he doesn’t agree with the “philosophy” or “want to deal with” any of the Republican leadership. That means no House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), no House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA), and no recently elected House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-NY) on Tapper’s show. Tapper said he believes they could lie to his audience, so he will not even let them appear on his program and is not even trying to invite them on. Hosts of the...
    Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., revealed that CNN star Jake Tapper attempted to have her on his programs after the liberal anchor suggested that he would never book the high-ranking House Republican for an interview.  During a recent interview on The New York Times podcast "Sway," Tapper seemed to indicate that all three Republican leaders in the House of Representatives were not welcomed on his CNN shows over their "lies" about the 2020 presidential election.  "Yeah, I mean this is something that I wrestle with every day… which is I have not booked, since the election, anyone who’s engaged in these lies. I just, I haven’t," Tapper told podcast host Kara Swisher on May 27. "It’s not a policy but it’s a philosophy where I just don’t want to deal with it. I don’t want to deal and it really saddens me because there are Republican members of Congress with whom I respect, or formerly did… If you’re willing to lie about that, what else are you willing to lie about? And why should my viewers listen to you?" JAKE TAPPER...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper and MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski refuse to book Republicans who question the results of the 2020 presidential election, despite their own network’s glorification of Democrats such as Georgia Democrat Party chairwoman and state Rep. Nikema Williams, who questioned the results of the 2018 Georgia governor’s race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp. Tapper, who provided a platform for Abrams to claim there was interference in the 2018 gubernatorial race, said last week during an appearance on Kara Swisher’s New York Times podcast, “Sway,” that “there’s about a third of the House Republican caucus that I am willing to book.” Following his remarks that he would only have on certain Republican guests, Tapper released the following statement to Politico, attempting to backtrack and say this “isn’t a policy,” but rather a “discussion” on whether to continue having certain Republicans as guests: This isn’t a policy, it’s a discussion I think everyone in the news media should be having. Should those who shared the election lie that incited the deadly attack on the Capitol and that continues to erode confidence in our democracy be...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appears to have acknowledged the conspiracies that were pushed by Rebekah Jones, the fired Florida health official who claimed last year that the DeSantis administration urged her to alter the state's coronavirus data, after he himself helped promote her falsehoods on his show.  Last week, National Review senior writer Charles C. W. Cooke wrote a devasting report that concluded Jones "single-handedly managed to convince millions of Americans" that Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis "has been fudging the state’s COVID-19 data." CNN HEAVILY PROMOTED REBEKAH JONES' FAKE CONSPIRACY ACCUSING DESANTIS ADMIN OF ALTERING COVID DATA Cooke outlined Jones' history of shady behavior and poked holes in her story, including the major revelation that she "did not have the ability to edit the raw data" in Florida's COVID database. The report also accused her of highly dramatizing the police visit she had late last year as the result of a valid search warrant.  Tapper retweeted the National Review piece last Thursday when it was shared by New York Times columnist Ben Smith to his 3 million Twitter followers....
    CNN's most prominent and most-watched anchors went the entire week without addressing the latest developments surrounding the death of the late Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick.  On Monday evening, Washington's top medical examiner determined that Sicknick suffered two strokes and died of natural causes the day after he confronted Jan. 6 Capitol rioters. While chief medical examiner Francisco Diaz said that the events of Jan. 6 "played a role in his condition" that resulted in Sicknick's death, the findings are still a bold departure from claims reported by The New York Times back in January that the officer had been "struck with a fire extinguisher" by the pro-Trump rioters.  GREENWALD BLASTS NEW YORK TIMES, MEDIA FOR INITIAL REPORTS ON SICKNICK'S DEATH: 'COMPLETE FICTION' However, like much of the media, CNN erroneously reported the falsehood.  "Officer Brian Sicknick died after being hit in the head with a fire extinguisher during the fight," anchor Anderson Cooper told viewers repeatedly at the time.  Cooper, along with his primetime colleagues Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, made no mention of the breaking news on Monday night that emerged hours earlier. ...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper opened his network up to intense scrutiny Wednesday after reporting on what went into MLB's decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Georgia amid protests over the state's new election law. The league announced earlier this week that the Midsummer Classic would be moved to Denver, causing an outcry among Georgia officials and elected Republicans who pointed to the small Atlanta businesses -- many of them minority-owned -- that would be affected by the departure of the league's showcase event.  However, Tapper insisted Wednesday that what was getting "lost" in the conversation were the "simple facts" of what would have happened if MLB did not take action. Citing an "informed source," Tapper tweeted that "MLB officials made the decision because if they didn’t then the decision would be left to individual players, individual All-Stars, some of whom no doubt would have individually boycotted the game themselves. In short: There was no way to avoid this becoming political. JAKE TAPPER ACKNOWLEDGES NINTH ANDREW CUOMO ACCUSER ON TWITTER, BUT NOT ON HIS CNN SHOW "If MLB hadn’t acted, individual players would...
    CNN's Brooke Baldwin (pictured), who is leaving the network this month, has slammed the company for the lack of women leaders just months after she was taken off air and replaced by Jake Tapper Outgoing CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin, who is leaving the network this month, has slammed the company for the lack of women leaders just months after she was taken off air and replaced by Jake Tapper.  Baldwin announced in February that she would be leaving the liberal network after 13 years. At the time, Baldwin made the shock announcement at the start of her 3pm show, CNN Newsroom, telling viewers 'there is just more I need to do outside the walls of this place'. Ahead of her departure, Baldwin, who first joined CNN in 2008, sat down for an interview with Ms. Magazine podcast where she described CNN as a male-dominated network.  'The most influential anchors on our network, the highest-paid, are men. My bosses, my executives, are men. The person who oversees CNN Dayside is a man, and my executive producer for 10 years is...

    PIERS Morgan has been backed by Megyn Kelly and Jake Tapper after leaving Good Morning Britain over Meghan Markle drama. Morgan, 55, resigned after senior execs said they wanted him to say sorry on air following his heated clash with the show’s weatherman Alex Beresford, 40, over Meghan Markle’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. ????

She also alleged an unnamed member of the royal family had raised concerns about her son Archie’s skin color...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appears to have changed his tune over the subject of offensive freedom of expression as six Dr. Seuss books were canceled by the author's publisher for racist imagery.  Tapper took to Twitter on Saturday to mock House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., whose video viral showing the top GOP lawmaker reading the Dr. Seuss classic "Green Eggs and Ham." "One of the weirdest parts of this culture war is that the self-styled 'warriors' aren’t willing to stand by the empirically racist images they’re supposedly defending. Green Eggs and Ham is not one of the books the @DrSeuss Foundation has decided to stop publishing," Tapper began a lengthy Twitter thread. CNN'S JAKE TAPPER BLASTED FOR QUESTIONING DISABLED VETERAN GOP REP'S PATRIOTISM FOR OPPOSING IMPEACHMENT The CNN anchor also called out the National Republican Congressional Committee for offering donors copies of "The Cat In the Hat," which he noted was "also not one of the books that will no longer be published." After listing the canceled Dr. Seuss books, which are "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," "If I...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper confronted CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky Sunday on when exactly schools can reopen across the country. The CDC recently released new guidelines on how schools can be reopened, which emphasized the need for continued mitigation and contact tracing if it can be done safely. Tapper directly asked Walensky, “Should all students be back in classrooms before the end of this school year?” She said that they want to advocate for having more kids in school “as our community spread comes down.” Tapper questioned why they don’t just open schools right now, asking, “Can you point to any scientific reasons for students in the United States not to return to in-person classes tomorrow as long as schools are taking the five steps that we referred to earlier — masking, cleansing, etc.?” Walensky responded they don’t want to risk bringing community disease in the classroom, noting the high rate of transmission across the country, and emphasized the need for universal masking and social distancing. “But what’s the science?” Tapper asked. He noted the serious “psychological damage” on children during this...

    (CNN)Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley has called on the country "to address the evil and scourge that is White supremacy," one month after pro-Donald Trump rioters stormed the US Capitol."One of the images that I'm haunted by is the Black custodial staff cleaning up the mess left by that violent White supremacist mob," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday, reflecting on her experience on Capitol Hill during the deadly siege on January 6. "That is a metaphor for America. We have been cleaning up after violent, White supremacist mobs for generations and it must end."Flags, signs and symbols of racist, White supremacist and extremist groups were displayed along with Trump 2020 banners and American flags during the insurrection last month. It took such a "harrowing and traumatic" event, Pressley told Tapper, for many Americans to begin to recognize the threat of White supremacy.Trumps second impeachment trial set to kick off this week amid questions about what it will look likeThe congresswoman's comments come as the Senate is poised this week to hear arguments in...
    It’s been just over one month since pro-Trump insurgents rioted at the U.S. Capitol, creating both physical and emotional damages. Many who survived the riots have spoken out about their personal experiences, including, as Daily Kos covered, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has done two live videos detailing her trauma. For those of us who followed the insurgency from home, we know that after a group of countless white people invaded the Capitol, custodial workers—including many people of color—were left to clean their mess.  Massachusetts Rep. Ayanna Pressley spoke to CNN host Jake Tapper about just that subject on Sunday morning, appearing on State of the Union. Her response is smart, moving, and emotional, and absolutely worth a watch. Let’s delve into it below. Tapper referenced the one-month anniversary of the insurgency, as well as Donald Trump’s impeachment trial beginning this coming Tuesday. “You lived through the events of January sixth,” Tapper stated. “What do you say to people who say, ‘Come on, just move on’?” “If we really believe that this is a moment of reckoning in every...

    Only five Republican senators voted Tuesday against a move to dismiss the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, with the vast majority supporting Rand Paul’s objection that holding the trial is unconstitutional. Jake Tapper opened The Lead Tuesday by saying, “Any American citizen thinking that Republican senators might have finally reached their limit with Donald Trump after Mr. Trump incited a terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol, resulting in five deaths, including a Capitol Police officer, well, I have bad news for you. They apparently have not.” Tapper noted that Mitch McConnell backed the effort to dismiss the trial and said, “While surely some of those 45 votes may have been based in divergent constitutional law, let’s be clear-eyed about the politics at play here and what today’s vote foretells. To convict Donald Trump, Democrats will need to win over 17 Republicans. Rand Paul says today’s vote showed that conviction is dead on arrival.” CNN congressional correspondent Ryan Nobles said the vote clearly signals the thinking of Republicans right now and how unlikely it is that somehow there will end up...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appeared offended by the assertion made by former National Security Adviser Gen. H.R. McMaster that the anti-Trump network attracts a partisan audience.  On Sunday's "State of the Union," McMaster attempted to address why the country is so bitterly divided, insisting it didn't all start with his former boss, President Trump.  "What we need to do is we need to analyze what the heck happened, right?" McMaster began. "We've been talking about the president's responsibility, but it didn't start there, right? This loss of confidence, these large portions of our population which feel disenfranchised, that lack confidence in our common identity as Americans, who lack confidence in our democratic principles and institutions and processes. How did that happen?" CNN'S JAKE TAPPER BLASTED FOR QUESTIONING DISABLED VETERAN GOP REP'S PATRIOTISM FOR OPPOSING IMPEACHMENT McMaster then listed off "civics education" and "a sense of our history" among things that should be reexamined before turning to the media's role in America's divide.  "We have to look at your profession, Jake, the media," McMaster told Tapper. "Why is it that people who lean...
    EXCLUSIVE -- 2020 Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, a U.S. Army combat veteran, blasted CNN’s Jake Tapper recent comments about Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., as "below the belt" and a slap in the face to veterans from someone who bills himself as one of their closest allies."Obviously I’m disappointed in Jake Tapper’s comments about Brian because a part, not a small part, of Tapper’s public profile is his supposed, steadfast support of our nation’s veterans, right? For a moment, albeit a brief one, the mask came completely off," Parnell told Fox News. 2020 Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell, a U.S. Army combat veteran, blasted CNN’s Jake Tapper recent comments about Rep.

CNN'S JAKE TAPPER BLASTED FOR QUESTIONING DISABLED VETERAN GOP REP'S PATRIOTISM FOR OPPOSING IMPEACHMENT During CNN's coverage of the House vote to impeach President Trump Wednesday, Tapper noted that Mast, a retired staff sergeant who served in Afghanistan, "lost his legs fighting for democracy abroad, although I don't know about his commitment to it here in the United States."

    CNN has launched an all-out campaign against the 74 million Americans who voted for President Donald Trump. The network ties the right to "the Klan," "Nazis" and "terrorists." Network anchor Jake Tapper even slammed Florida Rep. Brian Mast, a Republican congressman who lost both his legs fighting for his country and questioned his "commitment" to democracy. For CNN, anything goes now to destroy their political opponents — anyone who stands in the way of complete leftist control. An anchor mocking a wounded hero, another comparing the right to the Klan and an analyst repeatedly referring to Trump as "the motivational and tactical leader of an organized terror movement." That’s just one week on CNN. Heck, it might as well be one hour. CNN'S DON LEMON: TRUMP VOTERS ARE ON THE SIDE OF KLANSMEN, NAZIS AND CAPITOL RIOTERS It’s hard to tell which one of those was the worst outrage. But since anchor Jake Tapper represents himself as pro-military, let’s start with him showing his true colors. He blasted Rep. Mast saying, "A Republican from Florida, who lost his legs, by...
    The feud between CNN host Jake Tapper and veteran Brian Mast, a Republican representative from Florida, continued Wednesday evening with Mast reminding the host how much he sacrificed for Tapper's right to say "whatever the hell he wants." The spat began when Mast posed a question on the House floor during Wednesday afternoon's impeachment proceedings. “I rise with a very simple question,” he said. “On Jan. 6, thousands of people broke the law by taking siege of our Capitol here with us inside. Has any one of those persons who brought violence on our Capitol been brought here to say whether they did that because of our president?” Mast's query was greeted by 30 seconds of silence, to which he responded, “It appears I will receive no answer." Tapper then questioned Mast's commitment to democracy in the United States. "Congressman Brian Mast ... who lost his legs, by the way, fighting for democracy abroad, although I don't know — about his commitment to it here in the United States,” he said. Mast later reminded Tapper that the free speech rights...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper has sparked fury after questioning the democratic integrity of a Republican lawmaker whose legs were blown off while fighting for freedom.  Representative Brian Mast (R-Fla.), who lost his limbs to an IED in Afghanistan, was one of seven Republicans to vote against Donald Trump's impeachment on Wednesday. Mast was also among more than a hundred GOP lawmakers who voted against the general election results last week, shortly before a mob of Trump's supporters raided the Capitol. Tapper said last night: 'Congressman Brian Mast ... who lost his legs by the way fighting for democracy abroad - although I don't know about his commitment to it here in the United States - he said did anybody say that. Yes we heard them.'

    Jake Tapper opened CNN’s State of the Union Sunday reviewing the horrific violent riot at the U.S. Capitol last week and took note of some of the Republican responses. One week ago today, Tapper referred to the Republican efforts to overturn the results of the election based on evidence-free claims as a “bloodless coup.” But as he pointed out Sunday, after that horrific violent storming of the Capitol, it is no longer bloodless. Five people died as a result, including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick. Tapper said the flags at the White House are not at half-staff for Sicknick, “perhaps because Officer Sicknick was the enemy of the terrorist mob, and the mob loves Trump.” He highlighted the violent threats against Mike Pence and lawmakers, as well as the reports (and revelation by one Republican senators) that the president was delighted as he watched the chaos and violence unfold. “The flag isn’t down at the White House because the president is not mourning Officer Sicknick! He hasn’t personally decried the terrorists in any way, because the president loves the terrorists,...
    CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta reported that Donald Trump issued a implicit threat to his own vice president after Mike Pence told the president in a private meeting on Tuesday that he did not have the authority to dismiss or overturn state electors on January 6th. This would close the last door on Trump’s increasingly desperate gambits to somehow reverse President-elect Joe Biden’s certified victory. Appearing during the Election Night coverage of the Georgia senate runoffs, Acosta told anchor Jake Tapper that Trump was reportedly very frustrated that Pence recognized that the 12th Amendment does not grant him the authority to summarily override the will of the voters in the states. Earlier on Tuesday evening, ABC News’ Jon Karl reported that Pence will “defy” Trump’s entreaties and instead follow his Constitutional duties to certify Biden’s win. “One of the headwinds you hear when you talk to Georgia Republicans is that for the last nine or ten weeks they have had to deal with the fact that President Trump has been fanning the flames of conspiracy theories because he’s unable to accept the fact that he lost...
    Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images. Trump campaign senior advisor Jason Miller got in a Twitter spat with CNN’s Jake Tapper over the audio recording of President Donald Trump’s phone call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, with Tapper reminding his followers that Miller is delinquent on his child support payments and Miller firing back that Tapper is “a fake news pussy.” Trump had attacked Raffensperger on Twitter, saying that the two had spoken this weekend, and Raffensperger replied, “Respectfully, President Trump: What you’re saying is not true. The truth will come out” — and then brought the receipts, releasing an audio recording of their conversation. The recording revealed Trump repeatedly berating Raffensperger and Ryan Germany, the general counsel for the secretary of state’s office, making baseless claims of election fraud and demanding they help him “find 11,780 votes” so as to flip President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in their state. Miller critiqued the story in a tweet, complaining about only getting a four and a half minute clip and calling Raffensperger “a political hack who doesn’t care about election integrity.” “They...
    White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany scolded Jake Tapper on Sunday after the liberal CNN anchor called her a liar, noting that his "real problem" is that she calls out the mainstream media when it lies. Tapper appeared on CNN’s hyperpartisan media program "Reliable Sources" to complain about the Trump administration. He was one of multiple CNN staffers who spent the hour airing grievances about the Trump administration’s treatment of the press during the widely mocked episode of the show. JAKE TAPPER DELETES TWEET BOASTING HOW CNN JOURNALISTS 'SURVIVED' THE 2020 ELECTION Along the way, Tapper insisted that he doesn’t have McEnany on his program because she "lies the way that, you know, most people breathe," and therefore isn’t valuable to viewers. "This is what she does, she tells lies all the time. She can’t acknowledge reality," Tapper told CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter. The Washington Examiner shared a clip of Tapper’s comments on social media, which caught the attention of McEnany, who quickly fired back. "This is a therapy session for a broken network, and @jaketapper is lazy enough...
    CNN anchor Jake Tapper appears to have had a sudden change of heart about the seriousness of the potential impropriety of the Biden family's business ties after previously dismissing the Hunter Biden controversy that emerged in the final weeks of the presidential election.  During his interview on Thursday with President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris, Tapper mentioned how Harris' husband, incoming Second Gentlemen Doug Emhoff, was leaving his law firm to avoid any appearance of conflicts of interest ahead of the new administration and quickly pivoted to the president-elect's own potential concerns.  JAKE TAPPER DECLARES HUNTER BIDEN CLAIMS 'TOO DISGUSTING' TO REPEAT ON CNN: 'THE RIGHTWING IS GOING CRAZY' "When your son came under scrutiny during the campaign, you vowed 'No one in my family or associated with me will be involved in any foreign operations whatsoever. Period. End of story,'" Tapper began the exchange. "Will your brothers, will your son take leave from any business interests, not just foreign but any business interests, that might create any even an appearance of impropriety?" "My son, my family will not be involved...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden admitted Thursday that he fractured his foot after he took a shower and tried to pull his dog’s tail. The former vice president detailed the incident in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper: What happened was I got out of the shower. I got a dog. And anybody who’s been around my house knows, dropped — the little pup dropped the ball in front of me, and for me to grab the ball. And I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom. And I grabbed the ball like this, and he ran, and I was joking, running after him to grab his tail. And what happened was that he slid on a throw rug, and I tripped on the rug he slid on. That’s what happened. “Oh, man,” Tapper replied. “Not a very exciting story,” Biden said. “No,” Tapper agreed. The incident happened Sunday as Biden’s office said that the former vice president “slipped while playing with his dog Major, and twisted his ankle” while at his home in Delaware. A subsequent...
    Ivanka Trump on Tuesday pointed out carbon emissions have declined since 2019 under Donald Trump after CNN's Jake Tapper blamed the coronavirus for the fall.   The spat between the TV host and first daughter began after she tweeted: 'FACT: Greenhouse gases generated by the U.S. will slide 9.2% this year, tumbling to the lowest level in at least three decades.' Tapper then replied to the White House adviser to say: 'This is largely because of the pandemic and the economic catastrophe it wrought.' He then shared a link to a Washington Post article on the issue, writing: '2/ Kind of an important detail.'  But when she hit back, telling him the emissions were declining in 2019 before the pandemic, Tapper was then forced to concede, this time arguing market forces were at play and not policy.    On Twitter, users noted that is 'awesome'; another said 'Capitalism wins again'.  President Trump, who has worked to undo most of Barack Obama’s efforts to fight climate change, again railed against the Paris climate accord on Sunday. The U.S. exited the Paris pact on November 4, a decision Trump...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper took a moment during Kaitlan Collins’ latest White House report to defend her from another attack from the Trump administration. During McEnany’s press conference Friday, she refused to take a question from Collins and said, “I don’t take questions from activists.” So Tapper took a moment on air Friday to say this to Collins: “I just want to say — you got attacked from the podium today unfairly and unprofessionally, and I just want to note, you’re one of the best White House correspondents ever in the history of this country. You do a fantastic job and we’re very lucky to have you, and we are all 100 percent behind you.” You can watch above, via CNN. Have a tip we should know? [email protected]
