This is DISGUSTING.
CNN's Jake Tapper just questioned Rep. Brian Mast's commitment to American democracy.

Even for something that was broadcast on CNN, that’s pretty awful.
Absolutely vile. https://t.co/VpI83wBl7i

There’s no other way to put it.
They have zero respect for our veterans.

Meanwhile, @JakeTapper's commitment to Democrats is unquestioned.
