Jake Tapper: ‘They Hate Us More Than They Hate Her’

By Mark Joyella 

On CNN’s State of the Union Sunday, Jake Tapper described Hillary Clinton‘s handlers using a rope to pen in reporters who were covering Clinton as she walked in a New Hampshire parade as a win-win for critics of Clinton–and the media.

“A lot of Republicans loving it,” Tapper said, “because they hate us more than they hate her.”

S.E. Cupp described the rope line as “humiliating” for the media, who have struggled to cover the candidate and get her to answer their questions. “I don’t blame her, I blame reporters who put up with this.”
