When Jake Tapper said an election was stolen

Earlier this month, anchorman Jake Tapper demanded that CNN ban all Republicans (except Liz Cheney) because some dare question the veracity of the close counts in a half dozen states, which led to Biden's upset win.

Tapper said, "The lie about the election on its own is anti-democracy and it is sowing seeds of ignorance in the populace and, obviously, it has the potential to incite violence, but beyond that is if you're willing to lie about that, what are you not willing to lie about? That's where we are when it comes to the House Republican leadership McCarthy and [Rep. Steve] Scalise and where we are with too many leaders of the Republican Party. They're not willing to tell their voters the truth! What does that say about them?"

And Tapper did not stop there. He said, "How am I supposed to believe anything they say? If they’re willing to lie about Joe Biden wanting to steal your hamburgers and QAnon and the Big Lie about the election, what are they not willing to lie about? Why should I put any of them on TV?"

Stealing hamburgers? Um, the 7th ranking anchor on the 3rd-ranked cable channel got a little wound up.

His complaint about seeking a recount is odd because 20 years ago, Tapper was the one questioning the results of a presidential election. By his own definition, he is anti-democracy.

His book, "Down and Dirty: The Plot to Steal the Presidency," alleged that Florida officials illegally threw away 180,111 ballots cast in an election that President George Walker Bush won by 537 votes.

Tapper covered the election for and was upset with the outcome. In his book, he spread the rumor that Secretary of State Katherine Harris, whose office oversaw the election, had an affair with Jeb! 

Tapper wrote, "It may well be that the biggest difference between Bush and Gore at this point is that Bush has a Katherine Harris, and Gore doesn't."

Oh dear.

16 years later, Tapper was at it again pushing the Russian Collusion Conspiracy Theory that Vladimir Putin was in cahoots with Donald John Trump and stole the election.

There is Tapper's name in the byline of the first mainstream story pushing this bald-faced lie

QAnon has nothing on this Tapper nutball. He is proof of the prescience of the movie Network.

And he's Mad As Hell


  1. Retired Newspaper guys have long memories

  2. It's like this idiot forgets the Internet is forever. My problem is even with this truth, they are seldom called into account by our society. I long for the days of tarring and feathering, although I would be nice and use spray on tar, not hot tar.

  3. You could update your stylebook to refer to Jack Tapper as Down & Dirty Jack Tapper henceforth

  4. There once was a tool named Jake
    Twas the very model of Snake
    He lied ‘bout his lies
    And to no one’s surprise
    He drowned in Hypocrisy Lake

    1. I knew a man from Nantucket! Not sure if he was a hypocrite...

  5. I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…GOOD LUCK..
    HERE ➤➤

  6. I trust nothing from the Crap News Network and its workers...all the way down to the office cleaners.

    And speaking of QAnon, can anyone tell me what it really is, other that the left's Greatest Bugaboo? Other than Trump, of course.

    Nice limerick, zr!

  7. Jake Tapper - Red Diaper Baby?

    His parents are Jewish. When Tapper was a kid he spent summers attending the Jewish summer camp Camp Ramah in the Poconos.
    Tapper attended the Philadelphia School, a progressive, independent elementary school. He later enrolled at Akiba Hebrew Academy, an independent Jewish day school formerly located in Merion, Pennsylvania, and attended Dartmouth College, from which he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude with a B.A. in History,
    In 1992, Tapper served as a Campaign Press Secretary for Democratic congressional candidate Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky (D-PA) and later served as her congressional press secretary.

  8. Speaking of CNN -

    Wolf Blitzer's parents were Polish Jewish refugees from German-occupied Poland who survived the Auschwitz concentration camp; his grandparents, two uncles, and two aunts on his father's side all died there
    Blitzer began his career in journalism in the early 1970s, in the Tel Aviv bureau of the Reuters news agency.
    Fluent in Hebrew, Blitzer also published articles in several Hebrew-language newspapers.
    In the mid-1970s, Blitzer also worked for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) as the editor of their monthly publication, the Near East Report.

    1. Anderson Cooper is the younger son of heiress Gloria Vanderbilt. His maternal grandparents were millionaire equestrian Reginald Claypoole Vanderbilt of the Vanderbilt family and socialite Gloria Morgan Vanderbilt, and Reginald's patrilineal great-grandfather was business magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, who founded the prominent Vanderbilt shipping and railroad fortune
      During college, Cooper spent two summers as an intern at the Central Intelligence Agency. Cooper is openly gay; according to The New York Times, he is "the most prominent openly gay journalist on American television".

    2. Chris Cuomo is the youngest child of Mario Cuomo, the former governor of New York, and the brother of Andrew Cuomo, the current Governor of New York

  9. Jake has spoken many times of his long-time (unrealized) dream of marrying Gore's wife. You know, Tipper Tapper.

  10. Knifecatcher - you are a prolific Jew hater we get that. But what’s your point, other than to confirm the fact that you are a Jew hater.

    1. When you realize you are losing an argument, it is common to abandon the argument and attack the person. It is one of many forms of arguments called ad hominem, or to the person.

    2. He wasn't attacking you. He was just pointing out that all of your posts have an antisemitic common thread, and that you don't have any real point to make. I mean, all of what you say is true, but so what?

    3. So kc, what argument were you losing that prompted you to resume attacking Jews rather than stick to facts?

  11. What is amazing to me is that there are so many really ignorant people who actually watch and believe what the see on this so-called news network.
