CNN’s Tapper: The WH Hosts 9/11 Truther Macklemore While It Wages ‘War Against Birthers’

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” anchor Jake Tapper questioned the White House hosting rapper and 9/11 truther Macklemore while it was waging “war against birthers.”

Tapper showed Macklemore’s 2009 tweet reading, “911…bush knocked down the towers” before asking, “Is it acceptable, I say in the most leading question ever, for the White House, which has a war against birthers, and rightly so, to have a truther come to the White House?”

Tapper also referenced Macklemore’s “anti-Semitic masks.”
