Jake Tapper recently tried to virtue signal to The New York Times in regards to who he “allows” on his show following the 2020 election. According to Tapper, anyone who has ever raised the possibility of election fraud is banned. That supposedly includes Rep. Elise Stefanik, who supported the lawsuit over Pennsylvania likely violating its own constitution with judge-ordered changes to mail-in voting.

But what makes this a story isn’t that Tapper is a pretentious clown. Rather, it’s that while he’s saying one thing publicly, his producers have been doing another behind closed doors.

Stefanik had the receipts and absolutely wrecked the CNN host with them.

As you can see in the above screenshots, Tapper’s staff have basically begged Stefanik to come on multiple times in the last few months despite Tapper’s supposed ban going back to January. The dates above correspond with all the drama surrounding Liz Cheney’s ouster. No doubt, Tapper wanted to have Stefanik on to browbeat her over the Republican House caucus vote to remove Cheney from leadership.

Stefanik is smart when it comes to the media, though. She told Tapper to pound sand, and as far as I know, hasn’t appeared on CNN in any other capacity either. That’s the right play. As I’ve written before, Republicans have to stop walking into media buzzsaws. Do not give these people oxygen. Republicans owe them absolutely nothing. Let them choke on endless interviews with Eric Swalwell and Adam Kinzinger.

What’s really funny here, though, is that Tapper is attempting to present himself as the one calling the shots to these GOP elected officials. In reality, none of the Republicans in question are wanting to go on his show anyway so Tapper’s ban isn’t really a ban at all. You aren’t actually banning someone from something if they weren’t going to show up anyway. This is like the kid who has a party, has no one show up,
