Showing posts with the label Jake Tapper

Speaking with Monica Lewinsky about the HBO series she produced about Bill Clinton's impeachment, CNN's Jake Tapper actually disclosed having dated Lewinski in the past. "Yes, I have to disclose, full disclosure, in tonight's episode our G-rated date from December 1997."

 CNN anchor Jake Tapper awkwardly disclosed to his viewers of the "G-rated" date he had with Monica Lewinsky, which was depicted in the FX series about the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.  During an interview on Tuesday, Tapper plugged Lewinsky's HBO Max documentary "15 Minutes of Shame" and "Impeachment: American Crime Story," both of which she produced.  "First of all, Monica, yes, I have to disclose, full disclosure, in tonight's episode our G-rated date from December 1997," Tapper began. "Our one date," Lewinsky playfully stressed. "Our one date from 1997 is portrayed, I should note, by an actor way better looking than me now or then," Tapper added.  Hours later, the fifth episode in the "Impeachment" series aired, which began with Tapper's 1997 encounter with Lewinsky.  The scene shows Tapper, played by actor Chris Riggi, sitting at a bar with a friend at a D.C. Mexican restaurant and quic

Tapper calls Biden's new poll numbers 'brutal'

  Tapper called new poll numbers for Biden "brutal" on Wednesday.  Quinnipiac University released its results from its latest survey which show Biden's approval numbers underwater. The president’s approval rating is at 38%, down from 42% last month. The survey, which was conducted Oct. 1-4, also showed disapproval of the president rising from 50% up to 53%. For his first six months in the White House, the president's approval rating stayed around the low to mid 50s. But since his handling of the turbulent U.S. exit from Afghanistan, his approval numbers began to decline. In addition to his handling of withdrawing U.S. forces from Afghanistan, a growing number of Americans are disapproving of Biden's handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the surge of migrants illegally crossing the southern border.  "These new poll numbers are frankly brutal for the president," Tapper said during his CNN show "The Lead." Though Tapper insisted that he’s no

The White House Press Secretary on Trump's push to reopen schools: "The science should not stand in the way of this."

McEnany reiterated  President Trump 's strong stance on wanting children to be going back to school in the fall amid a fiery debate about how educators can prevent the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. "The science should not stand in the way of this, but as Dr. Scott Atlas said -- I thought this was a good quote, 'Of course, we can do it. Everyone else in the Western world, our peer nations are doing it. We are the outlier here,'" McEnany said, quoting the former Stanford Medical Center neurology chief. "The science is very clear on this. For example, you look at the JAMA pediatric study of 46 pediatric hospitals in North America that said the risk of critical illness from COVID is far less for children than the seasonal flu. The science is on our side here. We encourage localities and states to just simply follow the science. Open our schools," she continued. After playing a clip of that exchange on his show, Tapper corrected CNN's chief

Presidential candidate Jay Inslee reflects on diversity and white male privilege

In an interview with Jake Tapper 2020 candidate Gov. Jay Inslee reflects on discrimination and how he will approach the 2020 campaign in the most diverse Democratic field in history. Watch:  LOL! I can tell right now that this presidential primary campaign is going to be insanely fun to watch as more and more democrats get forced to genuflect before the most left-wing extremism of a party being led by progressive radicals. Yes, this is how you shore up the base of identity politics radicals, but it’s also how you drive off the more reasonable center moderate Democrats. No, they probably won’t be driven to vote for Trump, but this kind of crap won’t bring them out to the polls either…

President Trump's hypocrisy over Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s anti-Semitic tweet with a little help from a "rogue" control room

CNN's Jake Tapper tackles the Trump administration's hypocrisy on anti-Semitism after calling on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) to resign after an "anti-Semitic" comment about Israel.

Julian Castro answer is fantastically stupid: Trump's Wall Would Replace Statue Of Liberty As The Symbol Of America

2020 Democratic Presidential candidate Julian Castro discusses the border wall and the shutdown deal, how he plans to pay for his policies, and Howard Schultz's potential independent run for President. And, he  has one of the most fantastically stupid answers to Jake Tapper’s questioning that it is going to be really really hard to write this without cursing. CNN, JAKE TAPPER: Right. Earlier this month, Speaker of the House Pelosi said that the wall was -- quote -- "immoral." As you know, as you just stated, there are roughly 650 miles of existing wall, barrier, fencing at the border. Are they immoral? JULIAN CASTRO: Well, I don't think it represents the best of what America stands for. I think -- I believe that if we were to build the kind of wall that Donald Trump is talking about -- and, admittedly, as you know, sometimes, that's hard to figure out, because, some days, he says it's a beautiful big concrete wall, and, other days, he says it&#
