Jake Tapper’s Daughter’s Book Is Getting Translated into Chinese

-You mentioned even having
a Republican on the panel to be able to talk to you. You also talked about after the
horrific weekend of shootings in El Paso and Dayton, you
opened your show by saying — your Sunday show — by saying
that you had reached out and could not get
any elected Republican official to come on the show. -Yeah, except for the mayor of
El Paso. And the reason we did this, and you know this
just from your booking, it’s part of your show, too,
is we don’t make a habit of saying who we tried to get
and didn’t get. -I wouldn’t have time
in the show. [ Laughter ]
-Right. Hence, me here.
[ Laughter ] -You guys, Tom Cruise was a no.
Here’s Jake Tapper! [ Laughter and applause ] -But we did it because we were
doing a special four hours of “State of the Union,” because
of those two horrific shootings, and we had booked literally
seven Democratic presidential candidates,
and we wanted people to know that we had made an effort to
get national Republican figures. But the governor of Texas, the two Republican senators from
Texas, the governor of Ohio, the Republican senator of Ohio, that all these people
had turned us down. It wasn’t for lack of effort. -Is that, like, a very fast no
you get from them? Are you surprised
when they say no or is this what
you’ve come to expect, especially with an issue
like gun control, where there’s very little
they could probably say in the wake of the tragedy? -We have Republicans on “State
of the Union” all the time. In fact, we did end up having
the governor of Ohio on like a day or two later
on “The Lead.” But, yeah, I don’t think
Republicans like to talk after gun massacres
because I don’t think they have a lot of answers as to
why they hold a position that, for instance on universal
background checks, 90% of the American people support universal
background checks. The majority of Republicans,
the majority of NRA members, so why wouldn’t you
support that, and I think they don’t want to
talk about it. -You also — I believe
it was this week — when maybe on Sunday or Monday
when Donald Trump retweeted a conspiracy theory
about Jeffrey Epstein and who might have been involved
in the murder. -A particularly deranged one,
even for President Trump, who is a fan — the way that you
appreciate good music — is a fan of conspiracy theories. -He really does like —
Yeah, those are his jams. And you decided not — -Sitting in tonight
is Alex Jones. -Yeah, right.
[ Laughter ] You decided not to even show it. -Because it was just crazy. And libelous also.
-Right. I mean, again, surprise is
such a weird word to use now because I think all of
our capacities to be surprised have sort of been worn down. Are you surprised, though, we’re
at a time where you cannot show a thing the President said on TV because it’s just too
bat[bleep] crazy? -It is strange
because he is the President, and everything he tweets is
a presidential statement. It is an official
presidential statement. And even if it weren’t,
he’s still saying it, and he’s still the President, and he retweeted something
that was just nuts, in which somebody was intimating
that one of his political rivals had something to do
with Epstein’s death. And, yeah, It’s weird
when you’re like, “Yeah, I’m not going to share
what the President said with the American people
because it’s so crazy.” But the truth of the matter is,
we’ve been dealing with this since he came
down the stairwell. I remember during that debate, the Republican debate
with 11 people, at one point, I wanted —
I mean, he supports — he believes in this crazy theory
not supported by science or the medical establishment
that vaccines aren’t good. That they do something bad
that is not true, and I’m not going to
support it — repeat it. But I wanted Dr. Ben Carson
to correct him. That was my goal.
-Yeah. -And Carson wouldn’t do it. -There are some
good things happening. -What?
[ Laughter and applause ] -I’m gonna tell you because — But you’re to thank for it. And we talked about it before, and I always like to check in
with, really, the — We like to call her
the successful Tapper, your daughter, Alice Tapper.
-Alice Tapper. -She wrote an op-ed in
“The New York Times” that then became a book, a book
about encouraging girls to raise their hands
in classrooms. -She’s a superstar, yeah.
-What’s the update on the book? -Last we heard, she’s gonna have
a publisher publish it in China. So it’s gonna be published
and translated into Chinese, which is amazing. I have written four books.
[ Applause ] None of them
have been translated. -None of them have been
translated at all? -Not translated. I don’t even think they’re
translated into British. [ Laughter ] -Well, give her our best. Thank you so much
for being here. It’s always great. Jake Tapper.

Tapper Jake one of the most disingenuous reporters out there, and if you need examples ask Bernie Sanders.

How do you guys keep uploading these split-up-to-show-more-ads videos backwards <_>
Perhaps intentionally to load a third ad when the first video clicked is the second part of the interview. ?

If these Republicans believe that they are doing right by the American people why are they turning down interviews to express their view points???? Because they are not working for

I literally stopped watching CNN because of Tapper. He turned me off during his interview with Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. I was happy to see her put him in his place.He’s the master of whataboutism.

Nice to see a little of the personal side of Tapper. While he's not the Cronkite or Brinkley of our age, he comes close.

So is Trump admitting that the Clintons OUT of the White House have MORE power to do whatever they want than Trump has INSIDE the White House? That they were able to bypass Trumps admin on every level to do this? I thought the Trump gov was the most powerful and would never bend for a Clinton.

We need to get out of this mess and Bernie Sanders is the most likely candidate to defeat Trump. Just look at the 160,000 comments on his interview with Joe Rogan: so many conservatives are converted when they hear Bernie's message.

On a talk show about current events (even if it is for entertainment) if I had to choose between Tom Cruise and Jake Tapper … I'd choose Jake Tapper.


Aug 8, 2019, 8:47 pm Reply

At least we know who Trump is. A con artist.

Jake laughs with you while supporting the status quo that makes him rich and keeps the poor poor or make their situation worse by not asking the right questions or pressuring politicians to be for the people and not sell out to Multinationals. But he sold himself out anyway. Otherwise you will not be able to get a news show on tv. Period.
If you are not sold and don't do exactly what the corporate media tells you to do, you will be fired. Like many Progressives got fired by the mainstream fake news media.
Almost all the mainstream media "news" hosts pushes for wars with foreign countries. And who gets hurt the most, the poor and the middle class citizens of the US. And not the millionaires and billionaires of the stolen land.

How you going to pay for it? Corporate goon, Jake Tapper. Why does he show up on late night shows all the time? Nothing he has to say is interesting and he's not interesting. And if he sounds on topic I am always reminded he has no spine.

I'm happy for his daughter, but all that book really tells you, is that she has good parents. It will have absolutely no effect on whether anybody else "raises" their hand. I've told my niece countless times that there's no such thing as "god given" talent, that it's all about practice, hardwork and not being afraid of being wrong. The problem is, living this way takes practice and persistence. Parents need to instil confidence in the child from an early age. Some book encountered once at school cannot compete with daily, negative conditioning.
