The 2020 election certainly has had an effect on CNN’s Jake Tapper. Like many, he’s done with President Trump (and his spawn) and ready to move on to the dynamo that is Joe Biden. He’s dismissed Kellyanne Conway with a “Bye, Felicia.” He’s banned White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany from his show.
