CNN anchor Jake Tapper had harsh words on Thursday for controversial Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) following her non-apology speech on the floor of the House of Representatives.
CNN's Brianna Keilar asked Tapper for his thoughts on the speech.
"I thought it was the most disingenuous speech I've heard -- I wish I could say ever, but since a few weeks ago when the Republican leader, Kevin McCarthy, acted outraged that anybody would be pushing the election lie that he himself had been pushes for two months," Tapper said.
"The fact that she blamed this on news media for slicing and dicing and misrepresenting what she said when what I have seen in the news media and what we have reported here on CNN and others have reported elsewhere are complete sections of her live streams. Multiple minutes, three, four minutes. Screen shots of her social media posts where she hypothesizes in a deranged manner that the 2018 wildfire in California that cost dozens of lives were caused by the Jewish billionaire Rothschild family using lasers so as to enrich other wealthy Jews including Sen. [Dianne] Feinstein's husband, Richard Blum. These are just things that she said and things that she wrote," he explained. "Nobody sliced and diced, nobody snipped -- it's all there for people to see."
"And the fact that she would respond to these charges -- based in reality that she is a liar and conspiracy theorist -- with more lies and a new conspiracy theory that it's the media that has been misportraying her says it all," Tapper said.
"These anti-Semitic theories, QAnon, Pizzagate, all this nonsense and the big lie about the election -- this has cost lives. That's why people are discussing this and debating this -- this cost lives. It enraged a mob that attacked capitol hill. and this is more of a lie, this is part of the whitewashing of all of that," he concluded.
