Have a quick question about Jake Tapper

What's his story? He tweets often but I can't tell who his sympathy lies with.

Thanks

5. Jake Tapper

He worked on Democratic campaigns. I thought I remembered him but checked to make sure. Not a Republican.

6. He's done some interviews on Colbert where he's very critical of the Republican party.

7. He's a very "support the troops" guy, but in a "POTUS/Pentagon are doing them dirty" way.

So he was critical of Obama about Iraq and Afghanistan, but he had been even that much more critical of Bush for the same.

He tries to adopt a "take no BS from the politician I'm interviewing" stance, but still engages in both siderism.

He seems to really loathe Trump for his blatant dishonesty/deceit.

8. Tapper was one of the original journalists with

the very liberal online magazine Salon when David Talbot first began publishing. He worked with writers such as Joe Conanson, Joan Walsh, Eric Boehlart.
