CNN host Jake Tapper opened fire on the White House to begin his show Wednesday and accused them of “degrading” America’s standards with their depraved behavior.

“There are basic lines of human decency, norms to which society generally agrees and to which we adhere and we continue to see the Trump presidency eroding these lines,” Tapper said. “Some of the people marching alongside Nazis and the Klan in Charlottesville were very fine people, President Trump said, as he drew a line of moral equivalence between white supremacists and those who protested the white supremacists. Days after one of those Nazis drove purposefully into a crowd and killed Heather Heyer.”

Tapper also tried to tie failed Senate candidate Roy Moore directly the White House and lumped his alleged behavior in with President Donald Trump.


“Or last fall after US Senate candidate Roy Moore was credibly accused by women of having sexually abused them when they were in high school. One of the victims as young as 14. Republicans withdrew their support for Roy Moore except for President Trump who doubled down,” Tapper continued. “To this list of those marching alongside Nazis and those accused of sexually abusing children, the White House has added, someone accused by two ex-wives of spousal abuse.”

Tapper was referring to the resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter and said officials at the White House knew about his behavior and did nothing. He then lamented the “erosion of standards” under Trump and depicted the White House as a den of criminals.

“I just wanted to once again note a further erosion of standards for what I thought we had all agreed was not okay. Not acceptable, not moral,” Tapper concluded. “White supremacist rallies, child molesters, domestic abusers. Another moment where the White House is sadly no longer considered a place of the highest standards in the land, but rather a place where our national standards are being degraded.”
