However, as “Journalist Jake” sees it, it’s his nemesis who lives in an alternate reality.
Poor CNN. Things just aren’t the same at The Most Trusted Name in News™ now that Donald Trump no longer lives in the White House. Fortunately for the rest of us, Trump does still live in Jake Tapper’s head. Rent-free. 24×7. Which will most likely be the case until the end of Jake’s Trump-loathing days on earth. At least. Alternate reality? Of course.
Tapper suffered yet another Stage-4 Trump Derangement Syndrome episode during Friday’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” in which he launched into Trump in a trademark venomous diatribe. As Breitbart reported, he excoriated Trump over comments the former president made to Fox News host Laura Ingraham during a Thursday interview.
As is usually the case with Jake, his blistering of Trump was replete with the cute little overly-melodramatic hyperbole of which he’s so fond. He first spewed fire over the election and Dominion Voting Systems, before losing his crap over the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
“Tentacles from former President Trump’s big lie and the election continues to squeeze American society. There are those fighting back.
“Dominion Voting is now suing Fox for $1.6 billion for pushing that garbage that helped send the January 6 rioters into a froth, but that channel continues to allow the lies to be spread.
“Former President Trump was given a huge chunk of prime time last night to further disseminate these toxins telling us that the murderous MAGA mob on January 6 was all about peace and love.
“Look, you can decide for yourself whether his words match what we all saw and heard that day because the images from that day are certainly graphic and disturbing.”
Tapper then played a video of the Capitol incident, overlaid with audio, in which Trump told Ingraham the Capitol “festivities” [my word] amounted to “zero threat.”
