Tapper Shows His Bias As He Cuts An Interview Short With Trump's Campaign Comm Director
Trump's Campaign Communication Director Tim Murtaugh appeared on CNN's "The Lead," with Jake Tapper. Murtaugh claimed that Trump won the debate and was seen as a strong leader in some polls. Tapper felt otherwise, of course, claiming Trump was "abusive" during the debate, even though it was Biden that started all of the interrupting. The interview was going fine, Murtaugh kept making strong points about how Trump is far better for America. Tapper couldn't keep up and became frustrated eventually cutting Murtaugh's feed.
Tapper practically starts off by trying to make the point that Trump did not win the debate against Biden. He then comes out with supposed quotes from numerous Republicans. Murtaugh was undeterred and felt that the debate was very much a Trump win, since he got his message across.
Tapper became irritable over Murtaugh giving very full explanations to his questions and tells him to give shorter answers. Murtaugh complies and then Tapper accuses Trump of refusing to denounce White Supremacists. Murtaugh tells Tapper how things are and explains that Trump on numerous occasions has denounced White Supremacy, it's just the MSM spinning the truth.
Murtaugh wanting to get to the heart of the matter saying the real question should be:
"Which of these two men is better for the black community?" Murtaugh asked. "The president's record is clear: lowest unemployment ever for black Americans, historical funding to historically black colleges and universities, the First Step Act — letting people out of prison early for nonviolence offenses, giving them a second chance at life."
A defeated Tapper sick of the informed Murtaugh finally calls it as the interview has gotten away from him.
"You know what, I'm not Chris Wallace," Tapper says, he tells Murtaugh thankyou without giving him a chance to reply and cuts the feed.
Watch The Clip Below.
Tapper was hoping Murtaugh would be an easy target. He thought he had Murtaugh when he brought up White Supremacy and Republicans saying Trump lost the debate. But Murtaugh was prepared and easily handled the fake News that Tapper was trying to spread. Tapper was likely forced to cut the feed as it was killing CNN's anti-Trump narrative.
