The top-trending story on Twitchy right now — and it should be — is CNN anchor Jake Tapper questioning if Rep. Brian Mast is truly committed to democracy “here in the United States” because he voted against impeaching President Trump for a second time.
Word finally got around to Mast, who had this to say to Tapper:
I lost two legs for @jaketapper's right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election. https://t.co/ViNrwz9cbU

And not that it needs to be said again, but can we talk about all the times Democrats have contested elections won by Republicans?
Thank you for your sacrifice and continued service to this country!

Thank you for your service both then and now. You are a true Patriot.
Shame on Tapper and the propaganda horse he rode in on.

It just goes to show you the liberal elites, they value your sacrifice when it’s for their beliefs. he’s ok with you being harmed but it has to be for the voice he wants heard or defended. This is why there is a divide. Do as I say, not as I do. Listen to me only #dems

You’ve done and sacrificed more for this country than @jaketapper would do in 100 lifetimes. He is a tool.

He owes you an apology sir. And not one of those liberal apologies that go like this. “I’m sorry, but…”

Most of the media people have been seriously deranged for 4.5 years so I do think they can control themselves

Jake is a grifter. Never risked or sacrificed a thing while he uses others' sacrifices to pad his pockets. Disgraceful.
— GodfroiDeBouillon (@GodfroiB) January 14, 2021
He owes you a pretty big apology.

I might move to Florida just to vote for you.

God bless you Congressman, a man with legit nadz. Unlike Jake Tapper.

Tapper is a POS and everyone knows it. Karma is coming. Hang tough, and thank you for you sacrifice Sir.
— Tim Martin (@TM497) January 14, 2021
We’ve checked Tapper’s feed for an apology, but he’s too busy interviewing his friend James Comey.

We were all waiting for the thank you for your service but … you voted to commit sedition.
You’re a hero for your service and I’m grateful, as I’ve said before. And yes i question the commitment to democracy of anyone who spread election lies, signed onto that deranged TX AG lawsuit, and voted to commit sedition. You were not just asking questions.

Just take the loss Jake https://t.co/YPMh2e1kMW

@jaketapper If you said the same thing about Tammy Duckworth you'd be fired tomorrow. Only difference is that she has a D next to her name.

I called It! A non-apology apology. He could not care less. Rep. Mast losing his legs is his problem. Leftist political views shall have primacy here!
— Tom Piper (@TomPipe63162161) January 14, 2021
He needs to quit while his head is only 3/4 of the way up his ass .

‘DISGUSTING’: Jake Tapper says GOP Rep who ‘lost his legs fighting for democracy abroad’ may not be as committed to it in the U.S. https://t.co/9Pd0aQuUpo
