President Trump did us a favor by revealing to us that those individuals are who they are, and that's important as we go forward because the business of this nation continues. The pandemic, the economy, foreign policy, immigration — and now we know, clearly, how much these individuals care about facts or truth, how much they care about democracy or the principles that make this country great, which is to say, not at all.

CNN's Jake Tapper thanks Trump for 'exposing' Republicans who supported Texas' 'un-democratic, un-American, mendacious joke of a lawsuit'
  • CNN anchor Jake Tapper didn't mince words on Sunday as he offered a blistering assessment of Texas' "insane," "clownish," and "mendacious joke" of a lawsuit seeking to overturn the election results.
  • Tapper thanked President Donald Trump for "exposing" the Republicans who supported the lawsuit, which was brought by Texas' attorney general and backed by 18 other GOP attorneys general and a majority of the House Republican caucus.
  • "They are, definitionally, people who signed onto a desperate desire to subvert the will of the American people, to disenfranchise voters ... based on lies and conspiracy theories, putting an immoral and corrupt power grab above democracy," Tapper said.
  • He added: "Now we know, clearly, how much these individuals care about facts or truth, how much they care about democracy, or the principles that make this country great, which is to say, not at all."
