CNN’s Jake Tapper was incredulous when he heard the news today that President Trump had augmented his legal team with a new attorney. After all, hadn’t the president sent out a series of tweets just over a week ago denouncing The New York Times for reporting that he was dissatisfied with his legal team and looking to add more firepower to his defense?

Tapper was incensed over Trump’s vicious attack on The Times’ White House correspondent Maggie Haberman, particularly when the essence of the story she reported was true. A week after Trump’s denial of his unhappiness with his defense team, Trump did exactly what he trounced Haberman for reporting, albeit with a different lawyer than the one that she recounted Trump’s meeting with.

The CNN anchor took to Twitter to express his disbelief at Trump’s audacity.

The droll Tapper should have used an eye-roll emoji after his second sentence since the sarcasm in the statement “It’s almost as if he regularly decries as “fake” or “false” stories that are 100% accurate that he just doesn’t like” practically drips off the screen as one reads it.

Everyone knows that’s exactly how Trump’s cynical propaganda war works in a tactic straight out of the authoritarian playbook. His Orwellian undermining of truth and its replacement with self-serving lies demonstrates the depth of Trump’s manipulative attempts to deflect the public from the truth about all of his malfeasance and substitute the lies that better serve his own corrupt purposes.

Bravo, Mr. Tapper for calling out the president’s blatant lies and for defending your journalistic colleague. Trump will call you names and deny the truth at every opportunity, but keep on exposing the lies until we can rid the nation of the rot at the top.
