While I remain convinced that Twitter is a cesspool run by fascistic soy boys, there is one thing I appreciate about it. Twitter strips away the “hard hitting journalist” façade and exposes cable news personalities for the insufferable drama queens that they truly are. Take Jake Tapper.
Sure, Jake Tapper plays a Walter-Cronkitesqe serious anchorman on TV, but thanks to his presence on Twitter, we can all see the truth.
Jake Tapper is a big girl’s blouse.
In an interview with the New York Times earlier this week, the CNN personality told reporter Kara Swisher that he was not booking for his show any Republicans who believe what the big girl’s blouse calls “The Big Lie.”
One of the Republicans he specifically named as off his booking list was Elise Stefanik.
Yesterday, Stefanik tweeted out screen captures of emails from Tapper’s producer asking if she would appear on Jake’s show.
Naturally, Jake, big fussy girl that he is, got all well-I-nevery.
Donning his big girl’s blouse, Tapper fussily sniped back:
I can’t account for every email from my excellent bookers whose job it is to present me with as many options as possible. I have just refused to allow any of the Liars, such as Rep Stefanik, on air. Kind of stunning to see her proudly identify as a conspiracy theorist.
Oh, Jake. She didn’t “proudly identify as a conspiracy theorist,” you big girl.
You specifically cited Stefanik, by name, as one of the Republicans you refuse to book on your show. So Stefanik produced evidence proving that she received requests very recently to appear on your show.
And what a girl he is. Stefanik isn’t just a liar, she’s a Liar!!! Honestly, this guy has the emotional maturity of a Tik Tok ‘tween.
Then Senator Josh Hawley’s press secretary joined Stefanik in showing just how often her boss – whom Jake Tapper frequently accuses of “complicity” in the “insurrection” supporting “the Big Lie” – was asked to appear on Tapper’s show.
And once again Jake Tapper put on his big girl’s blouse and tossed his bookers under the bus:
And if the bookers had come to me and said he was an option I would have said no, as I have for every Election Liar. I only started explaining to them last month the reasons behind my saying no to every Big Liar. Weird to admit that your boss is an Election Liar but ok.
Take the skirt off, Louise. Lots of “Well oh yeah?!” energy here.
So let’s recap.
Jake Tapper repeatedly claimed Hawley and Stefanik are “Election Liars.”
Jake Tapper claimed he won’t have “Election Liars” on his show.
But these so-called “Election Liars” are repeatedly invited to appear on Jake Tapper’s show.
My guess is, none of the Republicans Tapper wanted on agreed to appear. So in order to save face, he’s now pretending that it was totally his decision to ban them from appearing.
You know what this reminds me of?
“You didn’t break up with me! I broke up with YOU!!!!”
Honestly, this guy fights like a girl.
Several people on Twitter are also pointing out the existence of a 2001 book called “Down & Dirty: The Plot to Steal the Presidency” about the Bush/Gore race.
And who authored this bit of election lying?
Why, none other than that big girl’s blouse Jake Tapper.
So thank you, Twitter. Thank you for inadvertently pulling back the Hard-Hitting Newsman façade and showing us just what an insufferable little girl Jake Tapper really is.
