Jake Tapper Delivers Perfect Response to Steve Bannon Telling Media to ‘Keep Its Mouth Shut’

Earlier today, it was reported that President Donald Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon had some harsh words for the mainstream media. Basically, he explained that the Trump Administration sees the press as the “opposition party” and he had some advice for the media.

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for awhile,” he told the New York Times.

Well, in response to Bannon’s declaration, CNN anchor Jake Tapper delivered a short, succinct statement.

“No,” Tapper dismissively replied with a grin.
