CNN anchor Jake Tapper is the hippest guy in TV news. Just ask him. The former Democrat activist is feeling on top of the world now with Democrats in control in D.C. and regularly trash talks Republicans even though he purports to be a straight news reporter. As these things go, Tapper’s hubris caught up with him Wednesday afternoon on CNN when he questioned the patriotism of Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL), a veteran who lost both legs in war in Afghanistan in 2010, for not voting to impeach President Trump. (UPDATE AT END.)

Tapper: “…Congressman Brian Mast, a Republican from Florida who lost his legs by the way fighting for democracy abroad, although I don’t know what his, I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States…”

Tapper’s comment came in a discussion about Mast asking during his House floor speech on impeachment if any rioter had said they were invited by President Trump. The New York Post reported on Mast’s question:

“I rise with a very simple question. On January 6, thousands broke the law by taking siege of our Capitol here with us inside,” Mast began.

“Has any one of those individuals who brought violence on this Capitol been brought here to answer whether they did that because of our president?” he asked.
