As Twitchy told you, earlier today, Donald Trump disavowed the audience’s chants of “send her back” at last night’s rally. Now, whether you take him at his word is up to you. But Jake Tapper and CNN apparently think it’s up to them:

Beg your pardon?

He did indeed:

You might not believe he meant it, but he definitely said it.

Not really. But allow Tapper and “The Lead” to rephrase:

Yeah, that’s much better. The “Lead” segment still says “claims,” but whatever.

Nice work, guys.

Because this … is CNN.
