Jake Tapper Tests Positive for Coronavirus, Infuriates Staffers by Taping His Show Anyway – Opinion

The hypocrisy of the Left seems to never end. Reports have shown that Antony Fauci, Dr. Antony Fauci’s former chief of COVID Shamer-in-Chief, used to dance naked in front the White House while continually lecturing people about the importance of wearing masks. CNN’s anchor Jake Tapper, COVID Shamer in Chief Jake Tapper tested positive earlier this month for COVID. However, he stayed on the set to record his show.  These people don’t own mirrors?

The Daily Beast Confider reports that the move infuriated some staffers at the low-rated network and that many were in fact “seething.”

Tapper, 53, received a positive test at the network’s Washington bureau on Monday, May 9, just ahead of his usual 4 p.m. show, “The Lead with Jake Tapper.” Rather than head home, he Instead hung around to tape the show; I guess because what, he’s just that important? Dana Bash replaced him the following day. He returned to air on Wednesday apparently from his home studio. “This happened in the same week that the country was mourning the millionth death due to COVID, which Jake covered on his show,” one pissed-off staffer told Confider.

As Bonchie reports, Jake Tapper was the one who, according to Bonchie, completely torched President Trump when he contracted the virus.

Oh, really, Jake? How could it have happened? He went on his shame tour.

“The Americans who don’t listen to science or medicine, who think masks are too instrusive, who pack bars, who willfully risk spreading the virus—you are making it worse for all of us. You are extending how long this pandemic will last, and it is tragic to say many if not most of you are taking your cues from the leader of the free world.”

This pile of garbage is so hot! How could it have happened? If you knew the secret, how come you didn’t share it? Second, now that you’ve tested positive, I don’t see you out there blasting Joe Biden, who promised he would fix this and yet failed miserably – more Americans have died under his watch than under Trump’s. Third, you’re torching all sorts of citizens who yes, wanted to go to a bar and see people and not go permanently insane… you’re torching them but it’s you who had a full-on positive case of the ‘rona and yet stayed in the office. It’s almost beyond belief.

The Daily Beast had some more unflattering comments for the misigning anchor.

Tapper, who is known to slide into reporters’ DMs to lash out at them for their coverage of him and CNN—and can be quite robust in his “feedback,” according to two people on the receiving end of his missives—was so freaked the story would leak that he had The Most Trusted Name in News’ enormous PR team working overtime to run interference on media outlets that called to ask for comment.

Not only is he completely hypocritical, but he’s also trying to cover it up.

DailyMail reported that CNN denied the report as of zero credibility. However, Tapper stated in a statement that he had followed safety procedures. “When he was notified of the positive result, he asked CNN execs what to do and then followed it to the letter—he double-masked and isolated, did the show solo in a flash studio (single-person enclosed room), and went home immediately after.”

Bravo to him. But you know and I know that if it had been somebody else, Tapper would still be hollering to the hills that the person was a “danger to democracy!”
