When President Trump refers to CNN as fake news, he is not exaggerating. CNN gave up on being a news network long ago, and will stop at nothing to advance its anti-Trump and anti-Israel agenda. However, CNN may have hit bottom with Jake Tapper’s biased, deceitful, and idiotic segment, were he tried to compare the pro-Jewish President Trump to Rep. Ilhan Omar, who is a vicious anti-Semite and Israel-hater.
In response to Omar’s anti-Semitic Twitter rant, Trump rightfully called on Omar to resign from Congress. Instead of supporting Trump’s condemnation of Omar, Tapper (who is Jewish) tried to depict Trump as a hypocrite. The Trump-hating Tapper presented a video from 2016, when then-candidate Trump addressed the Republican Jewish Coalition. While addressing the RJC, Trump made some harmless and humorous statements. Much of the audience did not take offense to Trump’s speech.
In the video, Trump indicated that he would reject money from the Republican Jewish Coalition. However, Trump was not referencing “Jewish money” or “Jewish lobbyists,” as Tapper attempted to have his audience believe. Trump was referring to his early campaign promise not to accept money from ANY lobbyist groups. His promise applied to both Jewish groups and non-Jewish groups. As expected, Tapper did not reveal the context of Trump’s statement.
Tapper failed to mention that the RJC has thoroughly supported Trump since his election. Why wouldn’t they? Trump is unquestionably the most pro-Israel and pro-Jewish President ever. Trump’s approval rating in Israel is as high as 80 percent, as it should be. Trump’s daughter Ivanka is thoroughly Jewish as well. Tapper also failed to mention that unlike President Obama, President Trump has filled his cabinet with people who proudly champion Jews and Israel. Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, Jared Kushner, Mike Pompeo, John Bolton and others have all been instrumental in helping President Trump implement his pro-Israel agenda.
Jake Tapper comparing President Trump to Rep. Ilhan Omar is a disgrace. Jake Tapper is a liar. If CNN had any journalistic standards (which it doesn’t), Tapper would have been fired for presenting such a dishonest and misleading segment. This segment was just another reminder as to why no one with half a brain should consider CNN to be a real news network.
