Report: As CNN’s Tapper promises to disavow Republicans like Stefanik, his team has fervently tried to book them

CNN’s Jake Tapper has made no secret of his feelings toward Republicans who challenged the results of the 2020 presidential race, even saying on a recent podcast that he has a “philosophy” against booking on his show members of the GOP who questioned President Joe Biden’s win last November.

But according to a new report from the Daily Caller, while Tapper was promising to disavow Republicans like Sen. Josh Hawley (MO) and Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY), the CNN host’s team was begging them to appear on air.

Emails show all

“It’s not a policy, but it’s a philosophy where I just don’t want to deal with it,” Tapper told The New York Times’ Kara Swisher on a recent episode of her podcast, Sway.

“I mean, there’s about a third of the House Republican caucus that I am willing to book,” the CNN host claimed, according to Politico. “I could name them to you if you want.”

But as the Daily Caller’s Jordan Lancaster reported Friday, both Hawley and Stefanik say they’ve been invited to appear on Tapper’s show on multiple occasions.

Hawley’s press secretary, Abigail Marone, said CNN producers reached out to the Missouri senator more than a dozen times.

Excuses, excuses

As the Daily Caller noted, Stefanik also shared screenshots of emails she’d received from Tapper’s team inviting her to be interviewed. “Shot….. chaser, chaser, chaser,” the congresswoman tweeted. “Drink up, [Jake Tapper]! You’ll need it with your plummeting ratings!”

According to the Daily Caller, Swisher later came to Tapper’s defense, saying the CNN star’s remarks were taken out of context. Tapper did admit that he “might be willing to interview” a Republican like Stefanik, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA), or House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA) “to talk about their election lies and what they’re doing.”

“I don’t think any of them, Scalise or McCarthy or Stefanik, have faced a tough interview at all about it,” he remarked, as Lancaster reported. “But I’m not asking for the interview and they’re not eager to do it, no.”

For his part, Tapper has said the emails were sent without his knowledge.

“I can’t account for every email from my excellent bookers whose job it is to present me with as many options as possible,” the CNN host wrote in a tweet Friday, according to the Daily Caller. “I have just refused to allow any of the Liars, such as Rep[.] Stefanik, on air.”
