CNN’s Jake Tapper: GOP Needs ‘Political Exorcist,’ Republicans ‘Clearly Have Lost Their Minds’

After the House voted to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time on Wednesday, CNN anchor Jake Tapper said that Republicans “are in a state of denial about the fact that he incited this riot” and believes the GOP needs a political ‘exorcism.’

Of the impeachment, Tapper said, “It is the most bipartisan impeachment in American history, far exceeding the number of people in the opposing party who voted to impeach Clinton or Johnson. So I do think it is significant.”

Tapper has been very outspoken about his views lately.

“On the other hand, it is still a vast minority of the House Republican Caucus, most of whom are still devoted to President Trump,” Tapper continued.

Tapper added, “Most of whom are in a state of denial about the fact that he incited this riot, this terrorist attack on the Capitol that put their own lives at risk, which is stunning in and of itself.”

He continued, “You know, I know a number of people, and I know there are a lot of Americans out there who have seen, are friends with or married to or related to people who have drunk the Trump Kool-aid, who have become radicalized by this president, who believe all of his lies, despite the evidence in front of their faces.”

Then Tapper told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash that Republicans are losing their minds.

“Dana, it’s just —it’s a shocking thing to behold when you know people like this. And it’s also shocking, like I don’t know about you, but there are Republican members of Congress I know who clearly have lost their minds, who just will not accept reality when it comes to the facts about Donald Trump.”

Bash replied, “We have seen people like Liz Cheney and Mitch McConnell try to show the people who respect them where to go and lead them there.”

It’s interesting to note who CNN thinks the “good” Republicans are – Establishment neoconservatives Liz Cheney and Mitch McConnell. 

“Then there are so many others who are following the pack,” Bash said. “Even though the pack is going in the wrong direction. The pack is following the lies.”

Tapper chimed in, “Like Kevin McCarthy.”

Tapper continued, “Marjorie Taylor Greene, the crazy congresswoman from Georgia, who is anti-Semitic and supports QAnon and said a plane didn’t hit the Pentagon on 9/11, she actually tweeted during this, a week after the terrorist attack, that Democrats are the enemy of the people.”

Tapper: GOP Needs ‘Political Exorcist’

That’s when Tapper said maybe an “exorcist” needed to intervene.

“I don’t know if there’s such a job as a political exorcist but they need to do something to fix the Republican Party to get this demon out,” Tapper said.

It is doubtful that Republican voters are going to take CNN’s advice on who to support going forward.

It’s also interesting to note that anti-Trump journalists haven’t figured out that the more they hysterically demonize Donald Trump, the more Republicans are going to support him. 

Conservatives view how the media treats different Republicans as a test. If CNN loves Liz Cheney, for example, chances are, she’s not someone who conservatives can trust to fight for their interests.

Dem Representative Jerry Nadler’s Impeachment Hypocrisy Exposed

Representative Jerry Nadler’s hypocrisy on impeachment is completely unacceptable. According to him, it both is and isn’t acceptable to impeach a President on a partisan basis.

Nadler Flipflops On Impeachment

In 1998, Nadler opposed the impeachment of then-President Bill Clinton on some very simple grounds. Nadler said that there must never be “a narrowly voted impeachment or an impeachment substantially supported by one of our major political parties, and largely opposed by the other,” as such an impeachment “would lack legitimacy, would produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come.”

I agree! Impeachment done on a partisan basis, as we can see today, only provokes a reaction from the American people of disgust and anger at one side trying to get rid of a democratically elected President.

CNN’s Dana Bash confronted Nadler about this in December, when he and other top Democrats were pushing forward with the impeachment of President Trump.

“So, right now, you are moving forward with impeachment proceedings against a Republican president without support from even one congressional Republican,” Bash put to him. “Is it fair to say that this impeachment, in your words from back then, will produce divisiveness and bitterness in our politics for years to come?”

Nadler, of course, dodged the question. “I think what puts bitterness and divisiveness into our politics is the conduct of the president, who calls – who questions the patriotism of people who don’t agree with him, who calls political opponents human scum, who talks about the fake press, who derides the judiciary, who questions – who attacks all our democratic institutions,” Nadler responded to Bash.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Nadler!

It certainly seems ironic that only on Thursday, Nadler tried to use the words of Senator Lindsey Graham from Clinton’s impeachment proceedings as a reason why the President should be impeached today.

How does this man have the gall to pull a stunt like that, when his hypocrisy has been so clear in the past? Senator Graham even said last week that the impeachment proceedings backfired against the Republicans in the 1990s!

I think Nadler should take some advice from his Congressional colleague. Hypocrisy does not pay off!
