Jake Tapper Throws Wicked Shade on Tucker Carlson and Trump for Montenegro Remarks


CNN’s Jake Tapper is bringing the shade on Wednesday morning in a rebuke to Donald Trump and Fox News’s Tucker Carlson for their comments about NATO and Montenegro.

During Trump’s interview with Carlson last night, the two talked about the president’s recent tour through Europe while raising questions of whether NATO still has a purpose in the modern age. The two particularly honed in on NATO Article 5, the alliance provision that asks all member nations to provide mutual defense if any one of them, even a new member like Montenegro, comes under attack.

Tapper appears to have noticed this, and is now pointing out the ways in which NATO states contribute to American international interests:

He’s also reminding people that Article 5 has been invoked only once throughout its entire existence: in the aftermath of 9/11.

Finally, Tapper is noting that Russia has tried to use Montenegro to stir up trouble before:

Wait, so Russia ALSO doesn’t like Montenegro? What an amazing coincidence!

UPDATE: Following Mediaite‘s report on his tweets, Tapper offered clarification that he only intended to share information about the topic:
