Cornel West Blows Jake Tapper's Mind
Watch the corporate propagandist's brain quake as he confronts information outside the CNN narrative
This week, Dr. Cornel West announced on the Katie Halper Show that he is running for president with the Green Party instead of the People’s Party in an effort to get his progressive message to a wider audience. That audience includes CNN’s own Jake Tapper.
Jake, who isn’t used to leaving the corporate-narrative echo chamber of CNN, is shocked to hear someone on the left calling out the “milquetoast neoliberals” who aid fascism. West continues on, laying out step by step why he’s challenging Joe Biden and Donald Trump and why the militaristic machine needs to be stopped.
Katie and Aaron watch as Tapper’s mind breaks under the weight of the until-now-unacknowledged viewpoints, and arrive at an important debate: Was Jake Tapper’s soul moved by Cornel West? Or, more importantly, does he still have a soul to be moved?
Plus, even as Tapper and co-conspirator Rachel Maddow refuse to show their audiences Trump’s response to his indictment, Katie and Aaron are more than willing to throw down for his admittedly hilarious speech. We analyze three of his craziest moments of accidental truth.
And finally, it’s a good thing Cornel entered the race, because whatever’s going on with RFK Jr. is suddenly very weird. Watch with us as he goes nuts for Israel.
