Jake Tapper calls out Biden debate gaslighting in stunning fact-check on Dems: ‘Hell has frozen over’

CNN anchor Jake Tapper balked at President Joe Biden’s surrogates who have been relentlessly gaslighting Americans over last week’s nationally televised debate debacle, serving up a brutal fact-check on the liars.

In a stunning turn for one of the debate’s moderators that one X user described as “Hell freezes over,” Tapper called out the Biden loyalists who are trying to convince people to believe them and not their own lying eyes and ears that told them that the emperor has no clothes.

In an added twist, Tapper even nicely invoked George Orwell, a man who perfectly envisioned Biden and his party in the classic dystopian novel “1984.”

Tapper told viewers that Biden’s handlers planned an upcoming high-profile interview – a tightly controlled setting – to convince voters he doesn’t have dementia as well as a call with White House apparatchik Jen O’Malley Dillon assuring party leaders all will be well.

“There is a pattern, a discernible pattern, of Democratic officials seemingly trying to convince you, the public, to not believe what you saw and what you heard with your eyes and with your ears on Thursday night,” he said, rolling clips of some of Biden’s mental misfires from the debate.

“Democratic officials have tried to spin this in many ways,” Tapper continued. “They said President Biden just had a cold, they said it was just one off night,” likening it to a poor showing by Barack Obama against Mitt Romney back in 2012.

“But behind the scenes, make no mistake, most Democratic officials witnessed the same shocking spectacle that you did,” he added. The difficulty that the presumptive Democratic nominee, the current president of the United States, had just articulating his basic thoughts during the 90 minutes of the debate.”

“The spinning is all very reminiscent of the George Orwell quote from the book “1984” that I invoked five years ago for a different situation and a different president,” Tapper concluded. “It’s relevant again today. Quote, ‘The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.’”

X users didn’t seem to know what’s gotten into Tapper, but there is a feeling in the air that something big has changed, and for reasons yet not completely clear.

For a very brief while, Tapper almost resembled an actual journalist.
