Tapper Leads Off Election Eve Coverage With Venomous Anti-Trump Rant



On Monday afternoon’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, CNN host Jake Tapper led off his show with a venomous attack on President Trump. Tapper accused Trump of being “incredibly reckless” for hosting campaign events on the eve of the election and claimed that America “is on edge” due to Trump.

Tapper began his rant by attacking Trump for being “reckless” for holding events on Monday, even though he acknowledged that Joe Biden held events as well, but the attendance is tiny (and therefore virtuous):

 

 

Right now, President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are making their final pitches to voters in key states, Biden right now campaigning in Ohio and Pennsylvania, while President Trump is holding five rallies in North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. These events that the President is throwing are reckless and large events, with no distancing or masks required, as health officials suggest, or in some states even mandate.

As the media has established, COVID is a leftist and only spreads at Trump events. It is not scientifically possible for COVID to spread at a Biden rally.

The Democratic hack then assaulted Trump for denying the “seriousness of the virus”:

The crowd there was chanting “Fire Fauci.” It’s all part of the President’s campaign strategy to deny the serious of the virus. His son even denies the dead bodies. The President undermining health care experts, holding events where the virus has literally been spread, incredibly reckless.

How dare Trump want people to be able to make their own choices about their personal safety and not be locked down in their homes. Furthermore, how dare he undermine the liberal media’s favorite doctor, Dr. Fauci. He should only listen to Fauci and not even talk to other experts.

Tapper then launched into fearmongering about the election by claiming that American “is on edge” due to right-wing violence and discussing an unsubstantiated report that Trump will declare himself the winner of the election on Tuesday night if he is ahead:

The nation, of course, is on edge, as the United States prepares to pick its president. President Trump also defending behavior today by some of his supporters whose caravan the Biden campaign says surrounded a Biden bus on the highway in Texas and attempted to slow the bus down and run it off the road, the Biden campaign says. The incident is being investigated by the FBI, so we do not really have any definitive idea of what happened or who did it, beyond the viral videos out there. But the President is backing his supporters as patriots who did nothing wrong. Perhaps the most worrisome development of all however, President Trump is now signaling that he may very well prematurely and falsely declare victory on election night, a Trump adviser tells CNN, even if votes are still being counted and the outcome of the election is unclear.

No mention of course of reports that leftists are preparing violent protests if Trump wins or that it was leftists who violently reacted to Trump winning in 2016.

Tapper then accused Trump of making “a clear attempt to disenfranchise voters who may not be Trump voters” for attacking mail-in balloting and alleged that he has a “chaos strategy”:

A Trump adviser tells CNN, even if votes are still being counted and the outcome of the election is unclear. One of the President’s top campaign aides Sunday seemed to refer to the normal process of counting vote-by-mail or absentee ballots as — quote — “stealing the election,” which, of course, it is not.

President Trump has denied that he has plans to prematurely declare victory, but he is openly threatening legal action to stop the counting of legally cast vote-by-mail ballots in places such as Pennsylvania. Democrats have disproportionately voted by mail and early voting during the pandemic, so we should note that. This seems, therefore, a clear attempt to disenfranchise voters who may not be Trump voters. 

The Democratic hacks at CNN sure do love ignoring the fact that Trump’s concerns over mail-in balloting are justified.

There is no doubt who the Democratic propagandists at CNN want you to vote for.

The Lead with Jake Tapper

11/2/20

3:00:03 PM

JAKE TAPPER: It is election eve. At this time tomorrow, we will be standing by for the first results from this historic presidential election. Right now, President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are making their final pitches to voters in key states, Biden right now campaigning in Ohio and Pennsylvania, while President Trump is holding five rallies in North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. These events that the President is throwing are reckless and large events, with no distancing or masks required, as health officials suggest, or in some states even mandate. The closing arguments from President Trump are not largely focused on the economy or his accomplishments as the incumbent. Instead, in the height of the spread of the coronavirus, the President is suggesting, if he wins, he will fire the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, in his second term.

(Cuts to video)

AUDIENCE: Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci! Fire Fauci!

DONALD TRUMP: Don’t tell anybody, but let me wait until a little bit after the election, please.

(Cuts to live)

TAPPER: The crowd there was chanting “Fire Fauci.” It’s all part of the President’s campaign strategy to deny the serious of the virus. His son even denies the dead bodies. The President undermining health care experts, holding events where the virus has literally been spread, incredibly reckless. The nation, of course, is on edge, as the United States prepares to pick its president.

This seems, therefore, a clear attempt to disenfranchise voters who may not be Trump voters. One of the President’s former top White House advisers will be on the show today to rebut what he calls a Trump chaos strategy.
