Jacob Paul “Jake” Tapper (born March 12, 1969 (age 52)) is a misogynist and reporter for CNN. Critics refer to him as Fake Yapper.

According to a Breitbart exclusive on September 6, 2020, Tapper tried to convince GOP House candidate Sean Parnell not to run against incumbent liberal Democrat Conor Lamb in 2020.[1] A poll later showed a dead heat in the House race.[2]

Tapper explained away 2020 Democrat vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris's poor debate performance by justifying it as "she's a woman".[3]

Sometime before January 6, 2017, DNI James Clapper briefed opposition research talking points, manufactured by the Clinton campaign in the Steele dossier, to Jake Tapper of CNN. The salacious innuendo lacked verification and a " news hook" for CNN to report, so Clapper instructed FBI Director James Comey to brief President-elect Trump on the allegations. Clapper immediately leaked the fact Trump had been briefed, creating the "news hook" CNN was looking for to publicize the existence of the Steele dossier. Clapper was rewarded with a job at CNN afterward.[4][5][6]
