We have to go back and check our own site from just a few hours ago: Wasn’t there a post about CNN’s Brian Stelter complaining that the word “narcissist” hadn’t been used enough in four years of covering President Trump? Didn’t CNN get enough attention when it retweeted that piece in Esquire about “The Oral History of CNN’s Election Week,” where we had to hear about Jake Tapper’s caffeine strategy? “The caffeine strategy was I needed coffee all the time, always. I was getting a new coffee every half hour,” he told the magazine.
Now Tapper has noticed that President Trump has retweeted Mark Levin, who called the CNN anchor “Fake Tapper.” But worst of all, the president retweeted that while the American people were suffering through the deadliest month yet of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The American people are suffering though the deadliest month of the pandemic and the president is RTing mean tweets about me.

Are you immune to criticism? You seem to enjoy giving it. How’s the spawn?

Yeah, isn’t Tapper the one who referred to Trump’s children as “the president’s spawn” and dismissed Kellyanne Conway with “Bye, Felicia”? Not that the mask was firmly in place before the election, but it sure dropped quickly immediately after.
Good enough for you. Oh aren't you the hero, though.

Says the guy who called @PressSec a liar without any basis in fact for such a claim this weekend. Sucks getting a taste of your own medicine doesn't it Jake?

The American people are suffering though the deadliest month of the pandemic and Jake Tapper is tweeting about how the president is RTing mean tweets about him.

And instead of reporting the news, not a narrative (a foreign concept to you and CNN I know) you’re more concerned about someone retweeting something about you.. see, I can do it to!

It’s not too late to tweet about “that laptop stuff,” if it’s a slow news day.

Everyone in the mainstream media, just hang on a little longer … we know you’re cranky, but naptime is just around the corner.

Tapper really needs to take a break from Twitter. Isn’t there a pandemic to cover?
To be fair, it’s not even in the top 100 of the most deranged lies he’s told since Election Day pic.twitter.com/EIjIz2bsEo
