As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN's Jake Tapper tried to get Secretary of State Antony Blinken to ensure that "capricious billionaire" Elon Musk felt "repercussions" for thwarting a Ukrainian drone attack on Russian ships by turning off Starlink, which he's providing for free to give the Ukrainian people internet access. "How did this become my war?" Musk asked biographer Walter Isaacson.
A day later, Tapper was still on the story and wanted GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley to agree that Musk was a traitor. It's now Tuesday and it's a trending topic:

Tapper tried to corner Blinken to criticize Musk, and it failed.
Now, he tries the same strategy with Nikki Haley, and it flops again.

Cable News Network is desperate for viewers, as bundled cable “channels” go the way of dialup modems, so they will say anything to get attention— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 11, 2023
Musk made his position pretty clear on Monday:
I am a citizen of the United States and have only that passport. No matter what happens, I will fight for and die in America.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 11, 2023
The United States Congress has not declared war on Russia. If anyone is treasonous, it is those who call me such.
Please tell them that very clearly.

The whole world is waking up.
Can’t wait to see how the media somehow spins this as negative— Habib❤️ (@RealXHabib) September 11, 2023
Does Tapper want to send American troops into Russia to fight? Or is he just having a hissy fit over Musk not doing what he wanted?
