Jake Tapper Nukes Donald Trump On Real Time With Bill Maher: ‘I’ve Never Seen This Level Of Falsehood’

CNN news anchor Jake Tapper appeared on Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” saying about Donald Trump that that the problem of politicians lying “wasn’t invented on January 20” following Trump’s inauguration but that in all his years of reporting on politics, he’d “never really seen this level of falsehood, just quantitatively.” It’s not just ‘If  you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,’ it’s conspiracy theories based on nothing that have members of his own party distancing themselves from him.” Maher asked how Tapper’s work had changed since the inauguration, and pointed to his trend in “speaking truth to crazy.”

Tapper also criticized Trump for waging war on the media. “We’re all ‘fake news,’” he said. “All of us except for ‘Fox & Friends.”
