Hegseth on Tapper questioning GOP lawmaker's commitment to democracy: 'Partisanship is ... blinding him'

CNN anchor Jake Tapper showed that he is aDemocratic operative posing as a journalist” 对于 questioning the patriotism of military veteran 代表. 布莱恩·马斯特, R-Fla., “狐狸 & 朋友周末” host Pete Hegseth said on Thursday.

Congressman Mast was very kind, is the way I should put it,” the Fox Nation host told狐狸 & 友人,” after seeing Mast’s reaction to Tapper’s comments. “I watched that this morning. He stuck to the principle of what he argued on the House floor, which is there were zero hearings, zero questions asked of anyone related to the incident on Capitol Hill as to whether or not they were motivated by the rhetoric of the president.

Tapper, who has made a habit of offering his opinion during newscasts, faced intense backlash Wednesday for questioning Mast’s commitment to democracy after the Purple Heart recipient opposed 特朗普总统‘s impeachment following last week’s riot on Capitol Hill.

Congressman Brian Mastwho lost his legs, 顺便说说, fighting for democracy abroad, although I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States,” Tapper said in reaction to Mast highlighting concern toward the 2020 presidential election during the certification of the Electoral College in the House of Representatives.


桅杆, an Army veteran and double amputee, called for civil discourse Thursday on “狐狸 & 友人” in response to Tapper questioning his patriotism.

“好, the president told you to come to the people’s house, did he tell you to do it violently? Or did he tell you to go there and cheer people on, or what, but it’s worth getting to the bottom of before you rush to judgment and that’s the foundation of democracy,” Mast said during an appearance on “狐狸 & 朋友们”

I’m gonna say to Mr. Tapper the same thing that half of America is saying right now, hold me to a high standard – don’t hold me to a double standard. And me asking if any of these lawmakers that are about to vote have gone through any questioning, any hearings, have asked any questions of anybody, that’s an appropriate question, and it speaks to the foundation of our democracy, it doesn’t diminish it,” Mast continued, adding that he would also tell the CNN anchor that the country needs to heal its divisions through debate.


Hegseth called Tapperan emotional bowl of soup with an inferiority complex for military veterans.

I’ve known him. I know a lot of vets that he reaches out to. He’s obsessive about it, 几乎, 但, his partisanship is what is blinding him at this moment.

Hegseth said Tapper isultimately a Democratic operative that went into the media like most journalists.

I know exactly who Jake Tapper is. I have no personal animus for him. Neither does Brian Mast. 但, to pretend like his ‘hey I recognize he gave his legs on the battlefield, 但, he doesn’t care about democracy here’ is the kind of cheap shot you would expect from a partisan posing as a journalist.
