Jake Tapper Questions Patriotism of Disabled War Vet Rep. Brian Mast for Voting Against Impeachment of President Trump

CNN anchor Jake Tapper is the hippest guy in TV news. Just ask him. The former Democrat activist is feeling on top of the world now with Democrats in control in D.C. and regularly trash talks Republicans even though he purports to be a straight news reporter. As these things go, Tapper’s hubris caught up with him Wednesday afternoon on CNN when he questioned the patriotism of Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), a veteran who lost both legs in war in Afghanistan in 2010, for not voting to impeach President Trump.

Tapper: “…Congressman Brian Mast, a Republican from Florida who lost his legs by the way fighting for democracy abroad, although I don’t know what his, I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States…”

Tapper’s comment came in a discussion about Mast asking during his House floor speech on impeachment if any rioter had said they were invited by President Trump. The New York Post reported on Mast’s question:

“I rise with a very simple question. On January 6, thousands broke the law by taking siege of our Capitol here with us inside,” Mast began.

“Has any one of those individuals who brought violence on this Capitol been brought here to answer whether they did that because of our president?” he asked.

More than 27 seconds of awkward silence followed as a masked Mast stared ahead stone faced and in the background, freshman Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene could be seen throwing her hands up in confusion.

Mast, an Afghanistan War veteran, relented after the prolonged period of silence saying, “It appears I will receive no answer.”

Longer clip of CNN discussion. Nowhere can they say that Trump called for violence, which was Mast’s question.

As I wrote earlier, Jake Tapper is the hippest guy on TV news, just ask him. Earlier Wednesday he promoted his appearance on the Ellen show and showed off his anti-Trump art on his wall.
