    In an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) expounds on his controversial op-ed that attacked President Trump. "What I did in my op-ed was not just talk about the president and my relationship with him and how we’ll work together, but also I laid out my perspectives and priorities on a very broad basis on everything from trade to China to our allies around the world, immigration and so forth," Romney said. Romney told Tapper while he is "not looking for the next election," he has not decided who will endorse in 2020. "I haven’t decided who...
  • Nolte: CNN’s Jake Tapper Makes False Claim About ‘Scooter’ Libby

    In yet another personal attack against President Trump, CNN’s Jake Tapper spread the false claim that Lewis “Scooter” Libby leaked the name of CIA agent Valerie Plame. While Tapper’s fan-base on the far left are celebrating Tapper’s spreading of this fake news, those who still hold journalistic integrity in high regard are telling the truth. Back in 2005, Libby, then chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was wrongfully prosecuted by special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, the man looking into who leaked the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson (who has since revealed herself to be an anti-Semite). The...

    Say you're Linda Sarsour—a big BDS fan and fierce critic of Israel. Or you're Tamika Mallory—a big Farrakhan fan who has refused to renounce him after he recently compared Jews to "termites." We've got good news for you. You've got a friend at CNN: Alisyn Camerota. On New Day this morning, Camerota interviewed Teresa Shook, founder of the Women's March. Shook has called for Sarsour, Mallory and other March co-chairs to step down over their anti-Semitism and homophobia. | [snip] Camerota read (and put on screen) some eyewash that Sarsour and company put out for the press: "We are imperfect....

    What does it take to get a straight answer from Stacey Abrams? For the second time in two weeks, Jake Tapper has pressed Abrams on an issue, and for the second time, Abrams, the losing Dem candidate in the Georgia governor's race, weaseled away. [snip] The cha-cha continued on today's show. Three times, Tapper pressed Abrams on whether she would recognize as "legitimate" the election of her Republican gubernatorial opponent, Brian Kemp. And three times, Abrams waltzed away. Refusing to pronounce the l-for-legitimate word, Abrams would only concede that Kemp "received an adequate number of votes" and hence would be...

    Tapper said Trump "started out by doing a dance on the graves of Republicans who did not show him enough fealty." "He danced on their graves. He said because they didn't embrace him they lost, and he was flip about it," Tapper said. "I've never seen a president take delight in people of his own party losing. And the only thing I can compare that to is some of the works of Francis Ford Coppola or Martin Scorsese." . . Trump's press conference also included multiple spats with reporters, including Tapper's CNN colleague Jim Acosta. Trump angrily called him a...

    CNN's Jake Tapper reacts to President Trump taking offense to a question about nationalism and white nationalism at his post-midterm election press conference on Wednesday. PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, the reporter who asked the question, is a black woman. Tapper said it "boggles the mind" that Trump could believe that a black woman could be racist. (snip) JAKE TAPPER, CNN HOST: "...The word ('nationalist') has baggage. A lot of people have not used the word... If you want to make the argument, make the argument. The idea that any reporter asking that question, in particular an African-American woman...

    Kudos to Jake Tapper. On his State of the Union CNN show this morning, not only did Tapper raise with Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams the legislation she introduced as a member of the Georgia legislature that would have forced Georgians to surrender their "assault weapons." Tapper then twice pressed Abrams on it as she tried to dance away.Abrams's weasel word of the day: "conversation." No fewer than five times Abrams claimed she was merely trying to start a "conversation" on the subject. Sorry, Ms. Abrams: when you introduce legislation, you're not merely starting a conversation. You're expressing what...

    Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel declined on Sunday to address an incendiary immigration video shared last week by President Donald Trump, instead saying that, "we know good people are trying to come into the country, too." The online video, which was tweeted by Trump last Wednesday, accuses Democrats, without evidence, of plotting to help people it depicts as Central American invaders overrun the nation with cop killers. "Listen, we know good people are trying to get into this country, too. They see the prosperity, they see the economic growth," McDaniel told CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."...

    GQ columnist Julia Ioffe is apologizing after claiming that President Trump "has radicalized so many more people than ISIS ever did" during a segment on CNN’s “The Lead.” The commentary comes two days after a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead, which prompted Ioffe to blame the president in a controversial tweet. "And a word to my fellow American Jews: This president makes this possible," Ioffe wrote shortly after the shooting on Saturday. "Here. Where you live. I hope the embassy move over there [in Israel], where you don’t live was worth it." On Monday,...

    Is Rep. Tulsi Gabbard preparing for a run in the 2020 Democrat primary for president? The Hawaiian representative is the first Hindu to serve in Congress and an Iraqi war veteran. She’s also a Bernie Bro anti-war progressive who has even managed to get sideways with Hawaii’s teacher union. That takes some doing for a Democrat to lose the endorsement of a teacher’s union. She was one of just three representatives and the only Democrat who refused to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s genocidal chemical attack on his own people. After the attack, Gabbard traveled to Syria to meet...

    Here is the thing that is so amusing about CNN… Pretty much every day the far-left network engages in numerous acts of self-humiliation. A Don Lemon or Chris Cuomo or Jake Tapper or Brian Stelter says or does something that forever stains their character, that reveals the hideous person beneath … and for what? If CNN had anything other than tragic ratings, if CNN were in second place or even close to second place, I could understand the shamelessness, the tabloid approach to covering politics. But CNN’s ratings are not only awful, they are miraculously awful. Not only is CNN...

    CNN host Jake Tapper said Friday that President Trump appears to be tougher on singer Taylor Swift than on the Saudi Arabian government "President Trump has been harsher about Taylor Swift this week than he has about [Mohammad Bin Salman]," Tapper said on CNN's "The Lead," referring to the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Tapper's comment came amid reports that Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month. The Post reported Thursday that the Turkish government said it has video and audio recordings that prove Khashoggi was killed. Khashoggi went missing...

    Attorney Michael Avenatti on Tuesday dismissed a rumor that he had been duped by a 4Chan user with fake allegations about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. "There is a rumor being floated that I was 'duped' or 'pranked' by a 4Chan user re Kavanaugh," Avenatti, who has said he has a client with claims to make against Kavanaugh, tweeted Tuesday. "This is completely false. It never happened; it is a total fabrication. None of it is true." "The right must be very worried," he added. "They should be." A 4Chan user posted earlier Tuesday that his girlfriend reached out to...

    Whatever happens to Brett Kavanaugh, Democrats have normalized yet another illiberal position in their pretend crusade to save the Constitution from Donald Trump. “Doesn’t Kavanaugh have the same presumption of innocence as anyone else in America?” CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Democratic Sen. Mazie Hirono this past Sunday. “I put his denial in the context of everything that I know about him in terms of how he approaches his cases,” was her unexpectedly honest answer. Plainly put, Hirono argues that because Kavanaugh—who earned the highest rating from the ABA during his time on the DC appellate court—has a record of originalist...

    There’s “precedent” and then there’s precedent. It seems for Maine’s Senator Susan Collins—who’s never been considered a conservative and is the very definition of a RINO—precedent is everything, except when it isn’t. According to Townhall recently, “Maine's moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins told CNN's Jake Tapper today that she would not be supporting a Supreme Court nominee who has “demonstrated hostility to Roe v. Wade” because, in her mind, that would be a justice who does not respect established precedent.”… As most today well know, much of what modern liberals hold dear was achieved because of the efforts of rogue...
