While most of us are eating, laughing, drinking and singing during this holiday season, President Donald Trump, his supporters, and CNN anchor Jake Tapper are in the throes of their latest battle royale.
The President took a swipe at CNN yesterday by retweeting an image of him in his car with, a bloodied CNN logo on the bottom of his shoe and the caption"WINNING," smeared across it.
This was his way of letting everyone know he has claimed victory over CNN.
State of the Union anchor and frequent Trump target, Jake Tapper, was the first to call out the president on what some saw as an ill-timed tweet. Trump adviser Jason Osborne soon jumped to the president's defense, but Tapper was ready... with facts.
Mr. Osborne seems to neglect the 'fact' that his boss threw the first punch. (Or perhaps he believes his boss merely reacted in an 'alternative' fashion.)
This was definitely a round for Jake. And the audience was all about it!
no one respects Trump and Trump frustrated he cannot bully his way into being respected.— kris (@KristinReinPdx) December 24, 2017
That is so beyond the behavior of a mentally stable person, it should trigger the 25th. WHO. DOES. THIS?— sikntyrd54 (@sikntyrd54) December 24, 2017
So details don't matter when the president is tweeting. That's cool.— Adam Green (@theAdamGreen) December 24, 2017
Things that don’t matter when Trump is tweeting:— 🌨Amy ❄️Wells ☃️ (@Absulutlyluvly) December 24, 2017
-facts (not the alternative ones)
-popular vote numbers
-emails from his team
-everything Obama did that he takes credit for
-99% of Americans
-people that have souls
Keep up the good work! Keep telling the truth as it in short supply these days due to our FAKE PRESIDENT— Emily Bryant (@EmilyJessieBrya) December 25, 2017
Jake, you make each day a little better. Thanks. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.— Rocket J Squirrel (@RocketJSkwerel) December 24, 2017
Of course Mr. Osborne couldn't let it go, replying to Jake with:
Have you looked at the picture? The “blood” has eyes! It looks like a bug!— Jason Osborne (@_JasonOsborne) December 24, 2017
Which Jake simply came back with:
Simple, to the point and even festive.
