Steve Bannon Says Press Should Shut Up — Jake Tapper’s Response? BRILLIANT
It’s no secret that Steve Bannon has a clear, strong agenda for Trump’s relationship with the press. The self-described white supremacist just did a rare interview with The New York Times and took the opportunity to paint the press as an enemy of the state. In that interview, he made the most absurd demand:
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while.”
Listen to what? More of Trump’s lies and let them go unchallenged? No. The press will not be intimidated by an authoritarian thug.
The press will not be muzzled, and that’s a fact CNN’s Jake Tapper made clear when he responded to Bannon’s remarks with something thoughtful and eloquent, yet appropriately brief. Watch below:
