Jake Tapper Criticizes ‘Ridiculously Sycophantic Questions’ Reporters Asked Hillary

tapperCNN’s Jake Tapper said today it’s easier to make a case for the media being tough on Donald Trump if that same standard is applied to Hillary Clinton.

Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany pointed to Clinton’s brief round of questions that included such hardballs like “Secretary Clinton, is it setting in that you might be making some serious history here tomorrow?” and “People just come up to you and they get tears in their eyes. Do you feel the weight of what this means for people?”

Tapper called those questions “ridiculously sycophantic” and said the media’s case would be stronger if the questions addressed to Clinton were as tough as the ones addressed to Trump.

A Clinton spokesman claimed this week Clinton has been more than available to the press, but reporters who cover her campaign quickly debunked that.
