Jake Tapper Delivers Knockout in Response to RT America Anchor Criticizing CNN’s Coverage

Early this evening, RT America anchor Anya Parampil sent out a tweet ridiculing CNN’s coverage of the inauguration, ripping hosts Dana Bash and Jake Tapper for talking about fireworks.

Well, Tapper saw the tweet and responded, making a reference to Parampil’s employer.

Ouch! RT America is the American-based channel of the RT network, formerly known as Russia Today. RT is owned and funded by the Russian government and is seen by many as a propaganda media outlet for the Kremlin.

After Tapper called Parampil out, there was quite a bit of reaction, most of it noting how Tapper destroyed Parampil.

Parampil replied back by invoking McCarthyism and inviting Tapper to appear on her network.
