CNN’s Jake Tapper got stomped when he tried to insult Ivanka Trump. “The times we are living in call for difficult decisions – Proud of my father for refusing to accept these horrendous crimes against humanity,” wrote Ivanka on twitter. Jake Tapper didn’t take too kindly to this.
“@IvankaTrump How do you feel about his proposed ban on Syrian refugees from entering the US? Do you see any disconnect there at all? Thanks,” wrote Tapper. Ivanka didn’t even have to answer, author Cate Long came to aid. “hey Mr. Tapper. There is a clear dividing line between news reporter and internet troll. And you just crossed,” wrote Long.
“No, it’s a sincere question to a senior WH adviser on Twitter. I’d love to ask her in an interview of course,” responded Tapper.
“and it’s been stated multiple times that there is no method to vet Syrians since intracountry systems are under Assad’s control,” wrote Long. Check mate! Why is this so hard for him to understand? Instead of arguing the logic, Tapper responded by questioning why she would be arguing with him.
“Not sure why your concern is more for one of the most powerful people in the world than for the most vulnerable but have a great weekend,” wrote Tapper. Long dismissed his disingenuous attack. “Have a great weekend too,” she responded.
