Tapper was also annoyed that almost no one in the Republican Party is pushing back against claims by Trump and his sons that the election was rigged. He called criticism by Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) “mealy-mouthed.”
Media is referring to you as "Trump's spawn". That's what you've been reduced to. Karma. pic.twitter.com/RwyCnkJ0fo— Happy Canadian (@macarthur54) November 6, 2020
Tapper went after the increasingly wild charges from Eric and Donald Trump Jr. in response to complaints by CNN co-host Abby Phillip about Fox News generally helping to bolster the president’s baseless assaults on the election process.
Broadcasting the Secret Service dragging Donald out in handcuffs would be exceedingly embarrassing on the world stage, but I sincerely believe it would be a cathartic visual for the globe, and it would be incredibly satisfying. https://t.co/vcBM1gedm8— Kimberley Johnson (@AuthorKimberley) November 7, 2020
“If you’re upset about what you see on Fox, and you have every right to be, you should check out the Twitter feed of the president’s spawn — because it is like rantings in crayon from someone having an LSD trip,” Tapper said.

As for Romney, he was measured in his complaints about Trump’s attacks on the election Thursday. But on Friday he was more pointed, complaining in a tweet that the president is “wrong to say that the election was rigged, corrupt and stolen.”
I still wish MSM would call Trump out on his obvious addictions. This is gonna get ugly and very unmanageable. His cocaine bingeing spawn is calling for civil war, he will too. The guy I knew would burn this country down in a heartbeat. Not joking. @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/I2Q29bQAR2— NoelCaslerComedy (@CaslerNoel) November 6, 2020
He added: “Doing so damages the cause of freedom here and around the world, weakens institutions that lie at the foundation of the republic, and recklessly inflames destructive and dangerous passions.”
