When Jake Tapper, CNN’s chief washington correspondent, slammed Linda Sarsour and other progressive leaders of the anti-Trump Women’s March for honoring convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur, Sarsour proceeded to dismiss Tapper as “alt-right.”
Of all the possible ways to describe Tapper, “alt-right” is not one. Tapper is one of President Trump’s most vocal critics. And he’s Jewish. Someone should tell Sarsour this would likely disqualify him for membership in any white supremacist group. But Sarsour’s “resume,” Tapper’s condemnation of her, and their subsequent Twitter exchange illustrate the extent to which this darling of the progressive Left—and her progressive Left followers—are unhinged.
