And The Hits Keep Coming: CNN’s Jake Tapper Humiliated Again (VIDEO)
CNN’s Jake Tapper was humiliated again after he tried to pick apart President Donald Trump’s attack on his network.
During a press conference, President Trump was again asked about the report that Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban to kill American soldiers. The President replied that he constantly reads his intelligence repots and said that the bounty report was “never brought to my attention, I think it’s another Russia hoax.”
He continued, “We’re working with Russia right now on a non-proliferation agreement—nuclear non-proliferation—and if we can get something like that it would be great. But it was never brought to my attention … because it didn’t reach the level. There were a lot of people, including Democrats, that said it never took place.”
“If it did take place, it would have been brought to my attention and I would take very strong action,” Trump added. “There’s been nobody tougher with Russia or China than I have—not even by a long shot.”
Tapper posted the clip of the President’s comments and highlighted “It was never brought to my attention” and “I think it’s another Russia hoax” are “Not true.”
“It was never brought to my attention.”
“I think it’s another Russia hoax.“
Yes there is disagreement among Intel Community about GRU “bounties” but there’s IC consensus that Russia is arming and funding the Taliban.

Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell – who we can thank for declassifying documents surrounding Obamagate – fired back.
“You haven’t seen the intel. You don’t know what you are talking about,” Grenell said. Your network told Americans that Kim Jung Un was incapacitated and brain dead for weeks. And you said you had intel on it. Your intel ‘sources’ have agendas. And so do you.”

Your intel “sources” have agendas. And so do you. https://t.co/F9LxIaI3zr
