Will Media Object to Pelosi Telling Tapper to 'Just Calm Down'?

April 27th, 2020 7:19 AM
The liberal media love to complain when they feel that President Trump has disrespected them. So how, if at all, will the MSM react to Nancy Pelosi telling Jake Tapper to "just calm down" when he asked about her failure to get state and local funding in the latest bailout bill? Pelosi has been all over television getting softball questions. So when Tapper asked if she made a "tactical mistake,"…

CNN host Jake Tapper concluded Sunday’s State of the Union with a self-righteous rant he thought was going to make President Trump look like he was doing nothing to combat the coronavirus.

Dr. Fauci Tells CNN to ‘Get Real’ With Their Microphone Freak Out

March 15th, 2020 1:50 PM
CNN has been so intense with pushing the narrative that President Trump didn’t care about dealing with the coronavirus correctly, that they’ve been hyperventilating about an image of him and Dr. Anthony Fauci touching a microphone at the same time during a White House press conference. When CNN fill-in host Brianna Keilar pressed Fauci on what happened, the nation’s top immunologist chuckled and…

The morning after President Trump gave the State of the Union address, the hosts of The View were practically bowing down to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for dramatically tearing the speech in two.

On his Sunday show State of the Union, CNN anchor Jake Tapper tapdanced on the Biden line again, that harrumph, of course, there's "NO evidence anybody did anything illegal regarding the Bidens and Ukraine." The obvious retort is "including President Trump. But they impeached him anyway."
