CNN anchor Jake Tapper is many things: cartoonist, host of “The Lead” and author of “The Hellfire Club” that he can’t stop self-promoting.

So why does he feel the need to make himself an apologist to Cindy and Meghan McCain on behalf of who, President Trump? Himself?

It’s like … “Look at me. I’m a nice guy with ethics and morals.”

Honestly, no one gives a shit.

It’s clawing and utterly annoying to the point of inducing disgust in a reader’s gut.

Now McCain’s longtime advisor Mark Salter calling Trump an “asshole” is totally fitting.

There’s also this, which is slightly less irritating because it’s actual news. But with Tapper’s other tweets it becomes a lesson in how not to be a journalist.

“At Fort Drum just now, notes @betsy_klein, POTUS thanked multiple members of Congress involved in passage of the ‘John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019’ — but not John McCain,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump no doubt deserves intense ridicule over his treatment of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who has brain cancer. As everyone remembers, Trump behaved like a complete moron in 2015 when he said, “I like people who weren’t captured.”

McCain was a POW in North Vietnam for five and half years.
