Beastmode: Jake Tapper Brutally Smacks Down Podesta’s Spin [VIDEO]

Jake Tapper was in no mood to put up with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s ridiculous spin on Sunday over the EmailGate scandal and the attempt to blame FBI director James Comey for the hot water she could be in due to her own actions.

Tapper ruthlessly grilled the weasel-like Podesta in this much-watch interview from CNN’s State of the Union, refusing to accept the Clinton spin machine leaders repeated attempts to transfer blame anything other than Hillary’s “horrible decision to set up her private email server.”

Tapper asked Podesta (at the 4:37 mark in below video):

“Do you accept the fundamental premise that the reason we’re here is because Hillary Clinton and her inner circle — not including you — made a horrible decision to set up her private email server and everything that has happened since then is her fault?”

A clearly flustered Podesta turned to the standard talking point that “she apologized” and “said it was a mistake,” that “she said she wouldn’t do it over again” and that “she’s learned from it.”

Why didn’t Richard Nixon try those excuses for Watergate? Why don’t all criminals use those excuses and expect to get away with it? Because their last name doesn’t end in Clinton, that’s why.

Other reporters should follow Tapper’s lead. When Clinton propagandists try their deny, deflect, demonize tactics, return the focus to the root of the problem — Hillary Clinton herself and her shady activities.
