Commenting on President Donald Trump’s rocky impromptu press conference Thursday afternoon, CNN’s Jake Tapper urged the President to “stop whining” and deal with the realities of his position.
“Everybody at home needs to ask themselves, how would you react if that were your boss coming in and giving a speech to the employees where you work?” Tapper said. “How would you react if that was somebody in your family that you were trying to have a conversation with? You would think, ‘This is very difficult to assess in a positive way. The person is not dealing with with world in which we live.’”
“He said things that weren’t true, he was called out by one reporter,” Tapper continued. “‘You said you had the biggest electoral victory since Reagan, that’s not true.’ And he said well, ‘Somebody gave me that information. Somebody gave me that information.’ The buck stops there? Is that where we are with this presidency? You said it. Own the words. You were wrong.”
Tapper turned to the camera, presumably to address the President.
“But it’s not just about electoral votes. It’s about the fact that he’s still fixated on whether or not he legitimately won the presidency,” he said, “President Trump if you’re watching, you’re the president. You legitimately won the presidency, now get to work and stop whining about it.”
