CNN's Jake Tapper did not mince his words. Trump's minions should talk up their successes and then close out the Trump era.
Jake Tapper, you've got to love his commentary
See full episodes here.
Jake Tapper first gives Trump and the Republican Party a face-saving out since it seems they cannot just accept their rejection at the top.
“It's time to start praising President Trump's accomplishments,” Jake Tapper said. “The Republican Party had a fantastic night other than at the top of the ticket. They picked up seats in the House. As of right now, they've held on to the Senate. They've held on to all their legislatures et cetera. President Trump has a number of accomplishments that Republicans can be proud of when it comes to Supreme Court Justices when it comes to tax cuts when it comes to deregulation when it comes to criminal justice reform.”
Tapper then gets real.
“It is time for Republicans to start praising Caesar and preparing to bury him both because it is very clear what is going on,” Tapper continued. “It is not helpful as you know that there are Republicans competing for the MAGA voters who are ginning up and following. Republicans, by the way, who know better. Yes, like Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Lindsey Graham, House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, people who know better, who know that there is no evidence of fraud. And it's time for them to come back to planet earth. It looks as though the Trump era is in its last throws. … It's time for them to start doing what's best for not just the country but also themselves.”
Tapper, earlier than most, has held the president and his sycophants to account for in his interviews. One hopes that after Trump leaves office, they don't do not bring the pollution back to our airwaves.
