It’s possible that CNN host Jake Tapper’s days are numbered at his network.
That’s because he just did the unthinkable: He actually praised President Donald Trump’s rapid COVID-19 vaccine effort, “Operation Warp Speed,” after Moderna announced this week they have developed one that is nearly 95 percent effective.
Moderna’s vaccine announcement comes after one from Pfizer earlier this month, which claimed a 90-percent effective rate.
Of course, Tapper had to lie first by claiming that the president had ‘many failures’ regarding his response to a virus that, lest we never forget, came from China.
“We should take a moment, as we always have when discussing vaccine and Operation Warp Speed, that this is, you know, putting aside all of the failures of the Trump administration when it comes to the coronavirus, and there are lots, this is an unmitigated success and we should acknowledge that,” Tapper said.
“The Moderna vaccine was done with funds from Operation Warp Speed and the Pfizer one has funding when it comes to the distribution and manufacture,” he continued. “And I just think it’s important that people working so hard … get credit for this and President Trump was the one who okayed it.”
“Yeah, no doubt,” Gupta said in agreement.
Tapper is right about Trump managing to get this vaccine developed in record time.
He’s nothing but a typical media punk, however, in claiming that the president didn’t do everything in his constitutional power to get this virus under control.
It can’t be said enough:
— Trump never shut down a single state (because he didn’t have the authority to do so)
— Trump never ordered a single business closed (because…again…no authority)
— Trump rapidly marshaled resources to get critical equipment and personnel to the hardest-hit spots in the country (while the governors of those states did nothing to prepare for a potential pandemic in the years before Trump even ran for office).
America is being robbed of the greatest president in our lifetimes. For that reason alone, we should never accept the elderly man replacing him.
