WATCH: Jake Tapper hits White House with damning list of Trump lies after it accuses media of ‘misleading the public’

Published

CNN’s Jake Tapper on Monday pushed back against the Trump administration after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the media of deliberately misleading the American people.

“You might find it hard to believe, but the Trump White House today said it is wrong when people put out information they know to be incorrect in an attempt to mislead the republic,” Tapper began. “That’s right, the White House, run by the president who came to political prominence by promoting the lie that the first African-American president was born in Africa, is finding time to take issue with those who mislead people.”

“The White House, run by the president who said with no evidence that crowds of American Muslims were seen on TV celebrating in New Jersey after 9/11,” Tapper continued. “The man who repeated the the ludicrous claim that Ted Cruz’s father had something to do with the Kennedy assassination, and the man who said with no evidence there were 3 to 5 million fraudulent votes for Hillary Clinton.”

Pelosi smacks down Fox News reporter’s question — and hilariously explains to Trump what ‘exculpatory’ means

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed "excited" about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.

During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, "Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?"

"All this milieu is a seeking of the truth," she replied. "It's called an inquiry."

Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.

"And if the president has something that is exculpatory -- Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence -- then he should make that known," she said. "And that's part of the inquiry. So far we haven't seen that."
