CNN's Tapper Questions Patriotism Of A Double Amputee Veteran
This is just crazy. These Liberal talkshow hosts clearly need a reality check. CNN's Jake Tapper had the gall to question the patriotism of Rep. Brian Mast. Mast lost both legs while serving his country. Tapper even noted his handicap, but because Mast opposed the impeachment, Tapper questioned his commitment to fighting for Democracy at home. Tapper apparently feels his incessant whining about the president is far more patriotic...
"Congressman Brian Mast, a Republican from Florida -- who lost his legs, by the way, fighting for democracy abroad, although I don't know ... about his commitment to it here in the United States..."

Twitter of course blew up over Tapper's callous/ridiculous comment.
"Representative Mast, along with myself and many others in Congress and across the country, served in the military so Americans can have freedom of speech, regardless of how repulsive or disgusting it may be," Rep Rick Crawford tweeted in response to Tapper.
"Wait, so he literally lost limbs fighting for democracy but you question his commitment to it because he won’t vote to impeach a president leaving office in less than 2 weeks. Aside from being offensive it’s using the logic of a toddler," another user posted.
"This might be the most vile thing ever said on cable news. Tapper was CNN’s last hope and he turned out to be the absolute worst," Dave Rubin tweeted.
Rep. Brian Mast also weighed in Tapper's slight.
"I lost two legs for @jaketapper's right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election."
Tapper used to at least try to be reasonable at times but this is just too much. Trump did not call for violence, in fact, he said just the opposite telling his supporters to "peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard." But Dems are under this belief that Trump practically opened the door for them at the U.S. Capitol building and told them to go wild. This is why the MSM and people like Tapper can't be trusted.
