Jake Tapper Slams Republicans Difficult Biden Electors: “Sedition Caucus”, “Cold Coup”, “Traitors”
CNN host Jake Tapper beat up Republicans in his State of the Union headshow on Sunday for organizing a challenge to Biden voters for Wednesday’s joint congressional session to validate the electoral college’s votes. Tapper used words such as riot, coup, and traitor to describe the Republicans’ efforts to ensure the 2020 presidential election was legitimate.
Tapper said he invited all twelve Republican senators who announced they were going to challenge voters in Biden and all of them declined or failed to respond when asked to appear in the state of the union. Tapper quoted a Civil War-era quote from Ulysses S. Grant: “There are now two parties, traitors and patriots.”
Jake Tapper said he invited all 12 GOP senators “involved in the conspiracy of this shameful effort” to overturn the election, but all of them refused or did not respond.

The state of our union is about to get off to a dangerous start into 2021. We are starting the year with the pandemic at its most alarming level yet. December was the deadliest month of the pandemic in the US to date. And the American vaccination race is stumbling out of the gate, only more than four million vaccinations have actually been administered – nowhere near the target of twenty million firearms by the start of the new year.
And what are the President and a large part of the Republicans in Congress focusing on when around 3,000 Americans die every day? Undermine the election results, essentially a bloodless coupand led the Republican Party into a state of turmoil. On Saturday, eleven Republican senators said they would vote against the election counting in Congress next week, calling for a ten-day review of the election results despite (psychosomatic cough?), forgive me, although there is no evidence of widespread electoral fraud.
The group follows the lead of Senator Josh Hawley, who says he will formally object to Biden’s decisive victory, although there is no credible evidence to justify such a move. Zero!
Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska hit Hawley and other members of the Riot caucus say, “Adults do not point a loaded gun at the heart of legitimate self-government.”
Late on Saturday, Senator Mitt Romney said in a bubbly statement: “I never could have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world. Has ambition overshadowed the principle? “
I want to point out that we invited each of the 12 senators involved plan this shameful effort To come on the show this morning to try to defend and explain their position. Each of them refused or did not answer. Everything is reminiscent of what Ulysses S. Grant wrote in 1861. “There are only two parties now: traitors and patriots.” How would you describe the parties today? “
