CNN’s Jake Tapper To Trump Admin.: It’s ‘Un-American’ To Say You Can’t Question Generals’ Statements




CNN’s chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper said Friday that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ statement that it’s “highly inappropriate” to question the statements of military generals is “un-American.”

“I have tremendous respect for the military but the notion that no one can even question the statements of generals is un-American,” Tapper tweeted.




Sanders told reporters at a press briefing earlier Friday that “if you want to get into a debate with a 4-star Marine general, I think that’s something highly inappropriate.”

“In what country?” Tapper asked in another tweet.

Sanders defended the since-debunked claims of White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly in which he called Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) an “empty barrel” for taking credit for the funding that led to the construction of a Miami FBI field office.

The Hill added:

Kelly was defending President Trump’s handling of a phone call with the mother of a fallen U.S. soldier who was killed in Niger, after both the mother and Wilson, who claimed to have overheard the phone call, said that Trump had been disrespectful to the grieving family.
