Video: CNN’s Jake Tapper claims Trump has Fox News, ‘army of trolls’ to defend him, Twitter responds

During Friday’s edition of “The Lead,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said President Trump has Fox News and “an army of trolls” who will defend anything he does.

“It’s been pointed out that Nixon had a better legal apparatus to defend him and Bill Clinton as well during their impeachments than President Trump has,” he said.

“But President Trump has something that Nixon didn’t have. He has Fox News. He has an army of trolls. He has sites, websites that will defend anything he says or does, and that could very well come into play. They are already coming to his defense,” he added.

Here’s video:

Got that?  If you support the president against the Democrats’ attempted coup d’etat, you’re a troll.

Of course, Tapper forgot that Nixon resigned before he was impeached, and he apparently forgot that Bill Clinton had… CNN and much of the liberal media.  And he seems to forget that his network, along with the rest of the Democrat-media complex, have been working to enact the Democrats’ coup since the day Trump was elected.

Response on Twitter was pretty much what you’d think.

Unfortunately, neither the Democrats nor their allies in the so-called media can handle — nor accept — the truth.  Worse yet, they’ve already shown their willingness to lie to the public on this issue.

Just call more proof of the hatred and condescension outlets like CNN have for many of the American people.
