CNN's Jake Tapper claims he is "not a Liberal Democrat" and is not pushing for Joe Biden to be re-elected
CNN host Jake Tapper spoke out in a new interview this week, claiming he is "not a liberal Democrat" and is not in favor of President Joe Biden's re-election.
Tapper attacks Republican "liars"
While speaking to Mother Jones, Tapper doubled his ban on Republican "liars" who questioned the validity of Biden's election victory.
“The election lies are lies. It is no less a lie than to say that the moon landing was faked or that the Holocaust did not happen or that Bush knew of September 11th and let it happen. Those are offensive ideas, ”said Tapper. “Look, people lost their lives [January 6th]. The truth is, we're lucky that more people haven't died. And that's why I find it incredibly depraved for journalists to just pick up and move on. "
"I'm really uncomfortable with the idea of just letting these people run away like what happened on January 6th didn't happen, like they didn't matter," added the CNN personality.

Tapper claims he is "not a liberal democrat"
When asked what "hope" gave him that the United States might one day be reunified, Tapper replied that the legislature had to find out what was "important" to her: "Your own individual pursuit of power or the country?"
"Look, I'm not a liberal democrat. I'm not advocating that Joe Biden be re-elected, ”said Tapper. "I just think it's important that these very shameful lies be shouted out."
It should be noted that Tapper spent virtually the entire presidency of former President Donald Trump attacking him on a daily basis. He also quickly celebrated Biden's victory, declaring that the "long national nightmare" according to Fox News was over.

Tapper raves about Biden's victory
"It is a time of several significant and absolutely preventable mistakes, most tragically of course, the unwillingness to respect the facts and science and do all that can be done to save lives during a pandemic," Tapper said days after election day on CNN.
“It was a time when truth and fact were treated with contempt. It was a time of cruelty when inhumanities like child separation became America's shameful policy, ”he continued.
"But now the Trump presidency is coming to an end, with so many wasted opportunities and ruined potential, but also an era of simple meanness," added Tapper. "It must be said, to paraphrase President Ford to tens of millions of our American compatriots: your long national nightmare is over."
