Skip to comments.Jake Tapper's ambush of Marco Rubio and Dana Loesch
Posted on 02/24/2018 9:47:46 AM PST by Starman417
In the aftermath of the Parkland shooting, CNN announced it would hold a Town Hall:
To help facilitate the discussion, CNN has announced it will hold a nationally televised town hall with the victims' classmates, parents and community members.Dana Loesch also would appear.
"Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action" will air live at 9 p.m., ET, on Wednesday, February 21 at the BB&T Center.
So far, Florida Rep. Ted Deutch, Sen. Bill Nelson and Sen. Marco Rubio have accepted an invitation to participate in the town hall. Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he would be unable to attend because he would be working on legislative solutions in Tallahassee. And President Donald Trump also declined an invitation to speak to the students and parents.
It was a set-up.
CNN had scripted questions set for gun rights proponent Colton Haab, who refused to participate on that basis. CNN denied it, but I really don't believe anything CNN says.
As Loesch entered the lion's den she was assaulted with screams of "Murderer!"
As Loesch and her security detail walked toward the stage, audience members shouted at her phrases like, murderer, child killer, and burn her. Jake Tapper, CNNs chief washington correspondent and anchor of The Lead, was the event moderator.And Tapper just stood there mute. No, he did not lose control. This is what he wanted. This is what he envisioned. It got worse. Cameron Kasky, leader of the lynch mob that night, hurled a vile salvo at Marco Rubio:
I know Jake, and it might strike a nerve, me saying this, but I think he lost control, Loesch said.
I'm sorry, I know I'm not supposed to do this, but I'm not going to listen to that. Senator Rubio, it's hard to look at you and not look down the barrel on an AR-15 and not look at Nikolas Cruz, but the point is: You're here and there are some people who are not, Kasky spat.This is not the language of someone seeking a dialogue. It was a cheap political stunt. It was scripted.
And Tapper just stood there mute.
Neither Loesch nor Rubio had a thing to do with the shooting and they appeared voluntarily. Not once did Tapper exert control of the situation and ask for a little respect for those (a US Senator included) who participated, believing that it was to be a discussion. They weren't prepared for the hostile and juvenile encounter.

If they was ambushed then they are stupid because they should have known better
Anyone who participates with the msm without being prepared for an ambush is an idiot.
Who did Loesch murder? I hadn't heard about that. This wasn't a "Town Hall". This was a misguided lynch mob made up of maggots, commies, retards and drug addicts with a few programmed high school snowflakes thrown in. CNN is a joke. A joke on us.
Any conservative walking into a media event is walking into an ambush. Rush Limbaugh knew when he went on Letterman that it would be packed with screaming booing idiots and Letterman would sit there stammering, “Uh, I don’t control them.”
Sadly, too many of our fellow Americans are unable to see these spectacles for what they are. They are led by emotion not reasoning ... and that is by “someone’s” design for Amerika. Guillotines from orbit! It’s the only way to be sure these enemdia vermin are gone.
In 1992, Tapper served as a Campaign Press Secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky (PA-13), and later served as her congressional press secretary. Tapper also worked for Powell Tate, a Washington, D.C., public relations firm run by Democrat Jody Powell and Republican Sheila Tate. Tapper also worked briefly for Handgun Control, Inc. (now the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence) in 1997.
Well, since when has Marco been known to be smart?
He got pwned by a HS kid.
No, they’re only stupid if they were surprised and being whiny about it later. They knew what they were walking into. The reason they went on is because the whole thing would say a lot more about CNN and libs than it would about them. You should download Dana’s podcast (for free at her website) and listen to her take on it instead of just ripping on her with no information.
An aside actually: I’m thinking N. Cruz was screaming for attention, perhaps for help, but the help never came as his screams in the form of various stunts we’ve all read about were disregarded for what they were 39 times by the Democrat run Sheriffs department.
It seems the guy had a track record of stupid that should have been a clue he was seeking attention, because something was wrong. He ended up murdering 17 people, because he lived amongst Democrats whom naturally can’t hear anyone screaming over their own screams for attention, because they always cover their ears as they scream.
It won’t happen unless it is forced by decent people living amongst the idiots in Broward County, but resignations from government are the right thing for the Democrats to do.
Never happen, because they are Democrats.
It’s almost as if the Broward Sheriff’s office welcomed the prospect of Cruz going postal.
LOESCH: I think Jake Tapper did an admirable job. I think that he -- I think ultimately lost control. I have a lot of respect for Jake. I think he -- I think it was a tough spot that he was in also.
The “kid” is a hardcore leftist agitator who has espoused violence, including wishing conservatives to be shot.
Rock ribbed conservative, that Rubio.
Ambush is right.CNN AKA as the fake news network didnt want to hear any opposing points of view.
Their view is guns kill.So ban guns.When we all know that the trigger on that AR-15 was pulled by a 19 year old male who had warned others around him of what he planned on doing.
Local law enforcement failed at doing their job as did the FBI.
It is worse than described. Dana Loesch was on Fox and told about more of the event.
She was invited and it was represented to be a discussion. She had no advance questions, nor even topics. She was not even given a list of events or order of appearance.
It started 2 hours before she appeared. She was last to appear. Lots of emotional testimony designed to set the crowd on edge.
She was introduced and then had to enter the arena of 7,000 to 8,000 down a long isle with the crowd right next to her. People were cursing her and calling her names before she even got to the stage. And it went down hill from there.
I predict . . . that there will be more hate for rubio in this thread than for the despicable bastard(s) that engineered the propaganda broadcast.
. . . and that’s just sad.
Nobody likes a bully and no one likes an enabler. Yes, they should have known better than to appear, but they also should have expected this and been better prepared. The enemedia should know that they are destroying themselves with these tactics.
