    President Trump just announced he does not have any tapes of his conversations with James Comey. Jake Tapper, obvious confused, gets on Twitter, re-tweets the Tweet in which Trump had warned Comey he’d better hope there are no tapes, and says this: “This is the tweet that started this whole thing. Followed by more than a month of WH refusals to confirm or deny he made tapes. Why?” These fake journalists are so dim-witted they can’t even figure out when they’ve been trolled by the President of the United States. Epic.

    Once upon a time, CNN provided 24/7, serious news coverage of world events. The network was born in 1980 and gained viewers with live coverage of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster in 1986 and the rescue of baby Jessica McClure in 1987. In the 1980’s it was the only all news cable network in the world. But, CNN didn’t garner international attention until the 1990 Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the subsequent US led Gulf War in the winter of 1991. CNN not only came to prominence during the Gulf War, they owned Gulf War news coverage. The first Persian...
  • CNN Meltdown: Jake Tapper Says White House Is “Un-American” For Blocking Them From Presser

    02/24/2017 4:12:36 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 82 replies ^ | Feb 24th, 2017
    CNN is having a bad day. They were blocked from a question-and-answer ‘media gaggle’ that White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer held today and they are not handling it well. Jake Tapper came unhinged and called the White House un-American for blocking out various outlets. Barack Hussein Obama did this routinely but Jake Tapper was fine with it because it only affected conservative media. The tables have turned and watching the meltdown is sinfully delicious.

    It doesn’t feel good to have your reporting labeled “fake news” by the man who is about to become president of the United States. Immediately following Donald Trump’s first press conference as president-elect last week, CNN’s Jake Tapper defended his cable-news network over charges that it had misled the public by reporting on the existence of an unverified document that U.S. intelligence officials had presented to both President-elect Trump and President Obama. While BuzzFeed published a copy of the dossier, which contained details of compromising information that the Russians supposedly have on Trump, CNN did not. It was a distinction...

    As soon as the long-awaited press conference from President-elect Donald Trump wrapped up this afternoon, CNN’s Jake Tapper took on the day’s speakers and main players for their treatment of his organization. First, he addressed incoming press secretary Sean Spicer, who insinuated that CNN had also published the dossier of unverified reports on the President-elect that Buzzfeed posted last night. In reality, CNN reported that it existed and that Trump and President Barack Obama were briefed on its existence; only Buzzfeed released the document itself. Tapper noted as much in his broadcast. “CNN never did that. We never provided even...

    He was the toast of the liberal media for a few days after first hitting the national scene last Sunday in St. Louis during the second presidential debate. For a very brief time he was hailed as a cuddly bear stuffed into a tight red sweater who was so cute that it made you want to hug him. And then by Friday...he became an instant non-person to liberals due to very un-PC Thought Crime remarks from his past on Reddit. Of course, I am referring to Ken Bone who appeared as one of the undecided voters asking a question during the...

    He slips! He slides! He dodges every which way and even Jake Tapper can't pin Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, down on whether she supports sanctuary cities. To give Tapper credit, he tried to pin Mook down twice but the Clinton campaign manager managed to slip away without giving anything resembling a yes/no answer on this morning's State of the Union on CNN. Before Mook was even finished uttering his first sentence you just knew there was no way he was going to really answer Tapper's question.

    WTOP News (Washington DC) ^ | September 17, 2016 2:55 am | DAVID BAUDER
    NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s renouncement of birtherism came with some media gamesmanship that compelled television news networks to air 20 minutes of endorsements by retired military men before the candidate briefly got to the point. “We all got Rick-rolled,” said CNN’s Jake Tapper, a reference to the Internet prank of replacing an expected link with a video of singer Rick Astley’s 1987 hit, “Never Gonna Give You Up.” The bad blood continued after the Friday morning event when the Trump campaign barred text reporters and a television producer from joining him on a tour of the new Trump...

And in this case the situation was the press conference yesterday at the North American Leaders Conference in Ottawa, Canada. During CNN's The Lead, Wednesday, Tapper explained:

    House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday said he's voting for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. In an op-ed for the Janesville Gazette of Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan -- who sparked a political firestorm last month when he told CNN's Jake Tapper he was "just not ready" to back his party's nominee -- says he is now convinced Trump will advance the Republican agenda. "I feel confident he would help us turn the ideas in this agenda into laws to help improve people's lives. That's why I'll be voting for him this fall," Ryan wrote. He added, "It's no secret that he...

    It looks like we might want to pay attention to provocateur Jake Tapper and State of the Union tomorrow as he interviews Bernie Sanders. In a recently released snippet from the interview Bernie goes full wolverine on the DNC and specifically DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. When Tapper thought he would corner Sanders about an openly pro-Sanders Schultz primary opponent, Senator Sanders didn’t flinch and said he fully supports her challenger. However, Bernie didn’t stop there. He said if he wins the nomination Debbie Wasserman-Schultz will be removed from the DNC.

    The most entertaining part of CNN's State Of The Union is often the tail end when host Jake Tapper presents cartoons he has drawn to illustrate stories in the news. And today he did not disappoint with an interesting angle on the death of Prince, namely the Tipper Gore connection. He reminded us via illustrations that Tipper Gore's once notorious Parents Music Research Center came about in reaction to Tipper and her daughter listening to a Prince album.

    Drive around outside at around daybreak and it is not an unusual sight to see men leaning against the outside walls of convenience stores chugging from cans wrapped in brown bags. Most often the brew of choice among such men is Colt 45 malt liquor. However, don't be too surprised if among such early morning Colt 45 fans, you spot Jake Tapper, host of CNN's The Lead, taking a chug from this brew and, perhaps, handing it off to his colleague, Wolf Blitzer. Such a speculation is not totally off the convenience store wall since Tapper seems to have embraced...

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” after an extensive questioning from host Jake Tapper on the recent protests and violence at his rallies, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he was not encouraging violence and accused CNN of misreporting. Partial transcript as follows: TAPPER: Now, protests on the campaign trail are obviously nothing new. I have seen one in every previous election I have covered, but in every one I have seen before the leader on the stage tries to lower the temperature, not raise it. Do you ever consider whether you should be trying to lower the temperature...

    Donald Trump brought a surprise to Thursday night's debate—an endorsement from former presidential rival Ben Carson. The New York billionaire was asked by moderator Jake Tapper what his specific issues were with Common Core when he pivoted to his endorsement. “I was with Dr. Carson today, who’s endorsing me by the way tomorrow morning, and we spoke for over an hour on education,” Trump said. “He wants a lot of different things that are terrific.” “I’m gonna have Ben very much involved with education,” Trump said.
