CNN host Jake Tapper ended "State of the Union" on Sunday by offering praise for President Donald Trump. But he quickly turned the tables, using the president's actions to slam the Republican Party.
What did Tapper praise?
At the conclusion of his show, Tapper told his audience that he wanted "to praise Donald Trump, not to bury him."
The CNN host proceeded to list legitimate achievements of the Trump administration, including:
- Operation Warp Speed
- Renegotiating trade deals
- Working to bring peace in the Middle East
- Working to bring home American troops
- "Expos[ing]" the "cozy" relationships between politicians and the media
That's when Tapper focused on the events of the last week, specifically on a lawsuit brought by the state of Texas to overturn millions of votes cast in the 2020 election.
The Supreme Court ultimately decided to not hear the case, saying the lawsuit had a "lack of standing under Article III of the Constitution."
Tapper used the development to bury the Republicans who supported it, including more than a dozen states and the majority of House Republicans.
'Unconservative, un-Democratic, un-American'
"These House Republicans raised their hands. They said, 'Sign me up.' The hope that most Republicans in the House were better than this, that has been destroyed," Tapper went on to say. "For those of us who believe in standards and norms and the U.S. Constitution, we need to thank President Trump for bringing this fact to light."
