CNN’s Tapper: Trump ‘Hates That Which Is Honest and Ethical’

Monday on CNN’s “The Lead” host Jake Tapper criticized President Donald Trump for his tweets about CNN.

 

Tapper said, “That is false. The amazing journalists at CNN International bring the truth to the world. They’re carrying out important, rare and often dangerous work. They have been for decades.”

After detailing developments on Michael Flynn, Tapper continued, “Now, that I’m I am sharing these facts with you, facts the president does not care for might explain why he seeks to discredit CNN and all media organizations who report on him without fear or favor, “The Washington Post,” “the New York Times.” The president does not care for us reporting these facts and seems that he does not want you to believe these facts. The president said he wanted to give an award based on which network is the most, quote, dishonest, corrupt, and/or distorted, but his problems with journalism seem to be rooted in the exact opposite. He hates that which is honest and ethical and precise. Ask yourself, why might that be.”
