Jake Tapper Turned President Trump's Conspiracy Theory on Its Head

We may not know for a long time, but one thing we're sure of is that Flynn's abrupt exit was not so much a resignation, but a termination by Trump.

During his press conference, Trump had once again mentioned his election victory, amid his discussion on how unfairly he perceives he is being treated by the media, stating he had enjoyed the biggest election victory since Ronald Reagan - an incorrect fact given that other presidents, including Barack Obama and George H.W. Bush, have enjoyed far larger majorities. O'Brien and Tapper then went on to speculate who might fill Flynn's quickly vacated shoes, suggesting General David Patraeus, General Keith Kellogg, and Vice Admiral Bob Harwood as potential candidates to fill the role, which serves as the chief advisor to the president on national security issues.

"You would think this is very hard to assess in a positive way", he continued. But while Press Secretary Sean Spicer cited a breakdown in trust between the president and Flynn, the president himself had another answer. Maybe. Or was it just because Flynn made Trump's administration look shady and incompetent (because, well, they are)?


CNN anchor Jake Tapper skewers Trump's insistence on tangoing with the truth, spreading falsehoods, and shifting the blame for the latest misconduct to come from Capitol Hill.

"President Trump if you're watching: you're the president; you legitimately won the presidency".

This was a meatball that CNN's Jake Tapper, a man reborn in this tragicomic era, couldn't take. They became public because the media reported on them-which is also how Vice President Pence found out he was lied to. "These are news stories, sourced by government officials".


"Of course these stories in The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, and elsewhere are not conspiracy theories", he said.

Tapper goes on to illustrate the utter and blatant hypocrisy of the president, since he didn't seem to have a problem with leaks when they were about Hillary Clinton's emails.

"Everybody at home needs to ask themselves, how would you react if that were your boss, coming in and giving a speech to the employees where you work", Tapper said.
