'Blowing UP his phone like an obsessed lunatic': Jake Tapper pestered Sean Parnell for statement dismissing his 'scandalous DM'

As Twitchy readers know, Jake Tapper allegedly tried to talk GOP candidate Sean Parnell out of running against Conor Lamb, which many have said should be considered election interference. Seems the day this story broke, Jake was ‘obsessively’ texting Parnell to get him to make a statement dismissing the scandalous DM. “‘I was with Sean the day one of these stories broke. Tapper was blowing up his phone like an obsessed lunatic,’ the source close to Parnell said.” CNN’s Jake Tapper pestered GOP candidate Sean Parnell for statement dismissing scandalous DM: sourcehttps://t.co/YD3jfoC3MV — Joseph A. Wulfsohn (@JosephWulfsohn) September 14, 2020 From Fox News: CNN’s Jake Tapper has been pestering Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell to issue a joint statement with him, as the “State of the Union” anchor tries to clean up the mess he created by attempting to talk Parnell out of running for a Western Pennsylvania House seat, according to multiple sources. Tapper tried to convince Parnell not to run against incumbent Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb last year, suggesting that the U.S. Army combat veteran would be better off running in a safer district for Republicans. But Parnell didn’t take his advice and is challenging Lamb in the critical district. That doesn’t sound like someone who doesn’t think they did anything wrong, you know? Not a great look, Jake. @brikeilarcnn @ReliableSources @TuckerCarlson Imagine if a FOX journalist did what Jake did. — KARMA ☯ SISTA®️ (@KarmaCafe2017) September 14, 2020 This would be the news nonstop for days … maybe weeks. Richard Grenell thinks Tapper is acting like “political operatives” do pic.twitter.com/oOwonFhAhV — Brian Flood (@briansflood) September 14, 2020 Tapper certainly isn't the only one. — ryuge (@0ryuge) September 14, 2020 Fair point. Sir Richard is correct. — Kambree (@KamVTV) September 14, 2020 Parnell is quoted in the article: “Well, I typically don’t make it a habit of talking about personal conversations, but I will tell you… back in October, I told Jake I had little interest in running in a safe Republican seat. Why would I run against one of my future Republican colleagues, that I consider friends, and they’re doing a good job,” Parnell told Levin. “I told him I had little interest in the status quo, and my mission is to take back the House, to take the gavel away from Nancy Pelosi, and give the power in this country back to the people. Ultimately, I wanted to give the people of Western Pennsylvania a voice in their political destinies because right now they don’t have one.” Parnell added, “That’s what I told Jake back in October and my stance on it hasn’t really changed.” Stay tuned. *** Related: ‘Who wants to tell him?’ Clueless dolt Rob Delaney gets hilariously SAVAGE civics lesson on the Senate (puppets and crayons!) ‘Facts be DAMNED’: Drew Holden torches Dems, media, and blue-checks over Lancaster narrative in EPIC receipt-filled thread ‘Stop weaponizing your office!’ Richard Grenell puts MEGA-Karen aka Gov.

'What?' Jake Tapper calls out NBA and Disney for licking China's boots and enabling Uyghur genocide … just like 'conservatives including Donald Trump'?

Yesterday, Jake Tapper took some time on CNN’s “State of the Union” to call out Disney for licking the Chinese government’s boots via the live-action “Mulan” remake: Bravo to @jaketapper for calling out Disney. Not only did it film “Mulan” in areas where 1 million Muslim Uighurs have been herded into camps but they thanked the Chinese regime entities who are doing it. “The big problem is Disney thanking people accused of committing genocide.” pic.twitter.com/4Me0ZS8r61 — Hillel Neuer (@HillelNeuer) September 13, 2020 Tapper was right to smack Disney around for that. And then he decided to tweet about it: Future generations will be ashamed to read how companies that consider themselves progressive such as the @NBA and @Disney joined with conservatives including @realDonaldTrump to sanction concentration camps and human rights abuses by the Chinese government against Muslims. https://t.co/Z64aMTbNe9 — Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) September 13, 2020 Thank you Jake, for taking a stand❤ — Deborah Johnson (@happymamadeb) September 14, 2020 A stand against … “conservatives including Donald Trump?” pic.twitter.com/CEJQWQQTJ3 — tree hugging sister (@treehuggingsis) September 14, 2020 What? — Dan 🇺🇸 (@danieltobin) September 14, 2020 Wait….what? — Can't you save us, Brittany Spears?!? (@RamseyChris) September 14, 2020 I’m completely confused. Seriously. — Beaverly Hakes (@bph960) September 14, 2020 Drinking again are we, Tapper? — Jackie Vasser (@JackieVasser) September 14, 2020 First of all, Donald Trump having an (R) after his name does not make him a conservative. And second of all, in what universe have conservatives been defending China for concentration camps and human rights abuses? I gather there was a typo there and you meant to say the NBA and Disney "did not join with conservatives…" — Dave Van de Walle (@Area224) September 14, 2020 We know Jake Tapper probably isn’t a huge Twitchy fan these days, what with us calling him out for nonsense with increasing frequency. But maybe if he read our site and a bunch of other conservative sites, he’d’ve realized that conservatives have been denouncing the ChiComs for their genocidal campaign against the Uyghurs for quite some time now — and denouncing progressive voices that have remained conspicuously silent on it. Started out as a promising tweet and then I am not sure what happened but man that went off the rails quick. — Gerry (@GerryDales) September 14, 2020 I read that and was like pic.twitter.com/GD28LHvdIH — Jimmy McScallywag (@Jimmy_McJohn) September 14, 2020 Same, man. Same. We get that Tapper has fully embraced his CNN colleague’s anti-conservative crusade now, but he’s seriously delusional if he thinks he can pin deference to China and willful blindness to their human rights abuses on conservatives. I’m not sure what this has to do with conservatives? — SeptemberIsAMember (@Buck_McCray) September 13, 2020 I’m glad you’re bringing attention to this matter, but what conservatives have condoned this? Genuinely curious. I haven’t seen examples yet. — Alice Weiss (@AliceWeiss) September 13, 2020 I mean, it was a good start and then halfway through it you decided to make a Biden commercial, despite Biden being MUCH friendlier to China than any conservative. — Gerry (@GerryDales) September 14, 2020 What conservatives or @realDonaldTrump is sanctioning concentration camps. We do not. Although apparently nba and Disney do. — mr jason (@jasonbross) September 14, 2020 Jake Tapper tries so hard to be relevant that he can't keep his stories or bias straight. As usual, after reading his tweet, all I can say is huh? — Graceful Klutz (@freakinfool) September 14, 2020 recent stories
