On Thursday, it took CNN roughly six minutes and 34 seconds from the conclusion of former President George H. W. Bush’s funeral before CNN’s cast of analysts and journalists started attacking President Trump and, despite claiming otherwise, making the genuine and heartfelt tributes to a man of character and honor all about the current President’s supposed lack thereof.
On CNN's "State of the Union," host Jake Tapper three times presses losing Dem Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams as to whether she acknowledges that her Republican opponent, Brian Kemp, will be the "legitimate" governor. Abrams refuses to do so, conceding only that Kemp "received an adequate number of votes" and hence would be the "legal" governor.
After Wednesday’s free-wheeling and tense White House press conference, CNN went on the offensive against President Trump, illustrating a level of self-centeredness that’s unrivaled in the media and showing petty levels of emotion on-set reacting to the President’s condemnations and tense exchanges with chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, political analyst April Ryan, and PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor.
With vote totals flooding in early in the night, it was painfully obvious to the liberal media that the so-called “blue wave” they’ve been hyping for a year crashed against red breakers. It was early in the nine o’clock hour when CNN anchor Jake Tapper admitted “what's going on here tonight, this is not a blue wave. This is not a wave that is knocking out all sorts of Republican incumbents.”
On his State of the Union show on CNN, Jake Tapper presses Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia state legislature that would have forced owners to surrender their so-called "assault weapons."
Monday night’s OutFront saw fill-in host Jake Tapper anchor another off-the-rails segment hours after a disastrous installment of The Lead that saw GQ’s Julia Ioffe falsely claim that the President has radicalized more people than ISIS (which was followed over 40 minutes later by a measly apology). This time, it featured guests chastising public pleas for prayer, questioning Jewish Trump supporters, and, yes, blaming the President for the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.
CNN host Jake Tapper has a pretty bad habit of sitting back and letting leftist guests get away with saying some really radical stuff. Earlier this year, Tapper let Parkland student Cameron Kasky attack Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) by equating him to the kid that shot up his school. Now, during Monday’s edition of The Lead, Tapper took the same approach as GQ magazine correspondent Julia Ioffe claimed: “this President has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did.”
A handful of cable pundits were less than thrilled to see highly political porn star lawyer Michael Avenatti injecting himself into the Judge Brett Kavanaugh controversy.
While most of the liberal media have been silent on the latest developments in the domestic abuse allegations against DNC deputy chair Keith Ellison, CNN host Jake Tapper on Sunday brought up the issue of the liberal double standard between Ellison and U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his show. And on her Saturday show, right-leaning CNN host S.E. Cupp also raised the double standard issue.
On State of the Union with Jake Tapper, former Michigan governor and Christine Ford defender Jennifer Granholm says that the fact that none of the "witnesses" that Ford named have any recollection of the alleged incident, "actually corroborates Ford's story." What?
It was the $40 trillion question.And once again, Democratic candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer it. Like other Democratic socialists and many progressives, Ocasio-Cortez has a long list of government giveaway programs. But even when confronted with a price tag, wouldn’t say how they’d be paid for (or who would pay).
During Tuesday’s The Lead, the CNN panel complained that President Trump did not act like a “Consoler-in-Chief” on the seventeenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, describing his behavior as “uber inappropriate” and suggested he may be “missing a human screw.”
