Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
CNN’s Jake Tapper is a raging, unbridled hypocrite. Tapper loves to strike the pose of an old-fashioned, intrepid reporter doggedly going after the truth, and occasionally actually even asks a semi-tough question of a Democrat guest, though never with any attempt at follow up when the Democrat inevitably lies or deflects in their response.
The truth is that Tapper runs one of the most absurdly-biased shows on television, one that has spent the past four-plus years relentlessly pushing every bizarre smear and conspiracy theory the Democrats have concocted against President Donald Trump and members of his administration. Tapper is just another of CNN’s lineup of shameless Democrat toadies, and everyone knows it.
Thus, it was richly ironic and frankly telling on Sunday when Tapper, seemingly out of the blue, ripped off a completely unhinged, 2-minute diatribe about an “unprecedented smear campaign” that the Trump campaign is mounting against Joe Biden, fellow Democrats, and smear merchants like himself in the media. Tapper then followed his TV diatribe with tweets that said the following:
President Trump and his team are launching an unprecedented smear campaign against rivals, leveling wild and false allegations against critics in the media and politics, ranging from bizarre conspiracy theories to spreading lies about pedophilia and even murder. 1/
2/ These smear campaigns are unmoored from reality. They’re deranged and indecent and seem designed at least in part to distract us from the horrific death, health, and economic crisis caused by the pandemic. The pandemic, which impacts you, is what we will continue to focus on.
You have to love that last sentence, claiming that his show is just focused like a laser on the pandemic, thus implying that that is how he has always conducted his program. Literally nothing could be farther from the truth; but hey, that’s the CNN way.
Tapper has used his program for four solid years to actively promote the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory, a theory that has now been completely debunked by the Mueller Report and a series of DOJ Inspector General reports. That truly unprecedented, massive smear was long ago revealed to have been concocted by the Pantsuit Princess Campaign working in conjunction with the Obama administration and willing dupes in the mainstream news media. Tapper was in fact one of the primary media dupes most guilty of willingly supporting this hoax. Yet, Tapper has never taken even a moment to reflect and offer an apology to his viewers, or even an acknowledgment of his own role in pushing that smear and attempted coup d’etat on American soil, which is what any serious journalist would have done.
For over a year, Tapper repeatedly provided a platform on his show for Michael Avenatti, the creepy porn lawyer who was pushing another smear and conspiracy theory targeting President Trump. That one involved Avenatti’s client, porn star Stormy Daniels, who Avenatti ended up bilking out of over a million dollars before he himself ended up in prison. Tapper, who at one point even spoke of Avenatti as a serious contender for the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination, has never taken a second to apologize to his viewers for his role in pushing this smear.
Nor has Tapper ever offered an apology for helping Avenatti push yet another smear, this time when he brought forward a clearly mentally deranged woman who hurled bizarre, completely-unsupported accusations at Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Again, Tapper played the willing propagandist for Avenatti’s conspiracy smear of a good man.
Tapper also used his program for six solid months last year through February of this year providing a platform for Democrats pushing still another conspiracy theory smear involving President Trump and the Ukraine. That smear, which we quickly discovered was concocted out of whole cloth by congressional Democrats led by the utterly corrupt Adam Schiff, occupied the national government’s attention while China was spreading the Wuhan Virus to our shores. Tapper has never taken a moment to apologize to his viewers for his role keeping them distracted on that particular Democrat hoax.
Speaking of Schiff, Tapper has also used his program as a platform for Schiff to spread his poisonous lies about all of the unprecedented smears mentioned above and more. Through all of Schiff’s dozens appearances on his program, Tapper has never once attempted to hold the pathological California congressman accountable in any way for his myriad obvious falsehoods.
Truly, America has seen no more consistent, dedicated smear and conspiracy merchant in its history than Jake Tapper. Thus, being the good little Democrat agent that he is, he naturally engages in the Clintonian/Alinskyite practice of projection, hurling the accusation at his enemies in the Republican Party.
What appeared to set Tapper off was the fact that Donald Trump, Jr. re-tweeted a video that mashes up a dozen or more instances of Joe Biden inappropriately touching, sniffing and caressing little girls and women at public events over the past 10 years. The videos of these instances have not been altered in any way, and simply show Biden being Biden. But true to his unerring form as a CNN propagandist for the Democrat Party, Tapper’s outrage is not with the creepy old man who clearly has a predatory issue going on, but with the member of the Trump family who retweeted it.
I would say Tapper is the worst such propagandist working today, but the truth is that he’s kind of middle-of-the-road in a profession that includes such luminaries as Brian Stelter, Fredo Cuomo, Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow.
Sunday’s tantrum appears to have been an effort by Tapper to break out of that low-rent pack. With Avenatti in prison and Schiff apparently shying away from media engagement in light of all the recent revelations about his serial mendacity, that’s going to be hard to do. After all, Fake Jake is always at his propagandist best when playing the straight man to a Democrat smear merchant.
That is all.
