True story: We’ve done so many posts on CNN’s Jake Tapper that we had to look for another photo of him to use alongside our stories so they didn’t get mixed up. So we checked out the internet and scrolled through photo after photo of Tapper looking like a sad puppy dog, although he’s getting his confidence back now that the media’s pick won the election. He’s feeling pretty scrappy, making up anonymous strawmen to make his points; e.g.:
"I decry violence," said the senator, while spilling gunpowder and gasoline all over the building and handing out matches to miscreant teenagers

Now Tapper is waiting for just an ounce of contrition from any of President Trump’s enablers or MAGA media. And keep in mind, decrying the storming of the U.S. Capitol as we ourselves do here at Twitchy, doesn’t count. He’ll let you know when he accepts your apology.
Has even one of the GOP officials or MAGA media who spread the election lies, or supported Sedition, or incited the mob, publicly expressed an ounce of regret or contrition?
Asking for a democracy.

Have any Democrats or their partners in media who supported deadly riots that destroyed businesses and statues over the summer or pushed the election lies about Russia since 2016 publicly expressed an ounce of regret or contrition?
Asking for a Constitutional Republic.

Perhaps they just need a bold example of remorse from anyone that promoted the dubious Russiagate story for the last 4 years.

Has even one member of the media, who spread hate & division, pushed Russia collusion BS, smeared Conservatives & POTUS, spread election lies, or incited the mobs all 2020, covered up Dem scandals, buried Hunter stories, publicly expressed an ounce of regret or contrition?

Yes, liar. BTW, the candidates you voted for and enable were applauding rioters this summer and helping to bail them out so they could get right back to rioting. Have they ever expressed regret?
What a sociopath you are.

When is Tapper’s colleague Chris Cuomo going to show contrition for asking, “Who says protests have to be peaceful?” And when is Vice President-elect Kamala Harris going to publicly show contrition for collecting funds to bail out a man who sexually assaulted an 8-year-old, or another man who was released on bail and assaulted a man, leaving him with a fractured skull and traumatic brain injury? Let’s play this game.
I think they are waiting for democrats to go first

You're an absolute clown, Jake. It's your own network who gave Trump more free media during the 2016 primaries than any other Republican candidate.

You are a pompous ass, completely incapable of reflection. You hate Trump because you don't want the competition.

Has he bothered to define what was seditious or what he means when he uses that word? Republicans need to stop answering questions based on sedition and first get that clarified because it begs the question about cause(s) of the indefensible riot
— Hi Eck (@Serfs_Road) January 12, 2021
Is it really a democracy when the media says what the government tells them to say?
Surely you can answer that question, Jake.
