CNN’s Jake Tapper: Pro-Trump Media Will Distort Mueller Testimony
Following Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, CNN anchor Jake Tapper warned that associated and allies of President Trump will ignore the substance of the hearing and instead utilize “memes” and “edited videos” to portray Mueller as doddering and confused.
“This is the reality of the president’s fans,” Tapper stated. “And they deal in memes and they deal in edited videos and I think there’s a lot that happened today when it comes to Mueller refusing to answer questions or acting perhaps a little befuddled at times.”
He continued: “And look, again, all of us should look so good at 74. I mean, whatever. Nobody at 74 is the same person he could at 35. It seemed he couldn’t hear. I’m not making light of it or want to be ageist or disparaging. I think that those moments are going to be taken and will be used against Mueller to try to undercut him—to try to discredit him.”
