CNN’s Jake Tapper took to Twitter Wednesday morning, calling on President Trump’s “attack dogs” to come after him following a contentious interview with Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway.
Responding to an Axios report that “Republican operatives were urging at least one conservative-friendly website to write Jake Tapper hit pieces,” Tapper issued what could best be called a taunt to whomever decides to come after him.
“So now we sit and wait to see which obedient attack dog follows orders. Arf arf!!” Tapper tweeted.
Tuesday afternoon, Tapper called out Conway for the Trump administration’s continuous lies, including saying the media refuses to report on terrorist attacks.
Late Tuesday, conservative CNN panelist Matt Lewis called Tapper a “rock star” for his handling of Conway whom he also described as “laughable.”
Tapper, more than any other CNN host, has become a thorn in the side of the Trump administration on his daily The Lead program.
