Jake Tapper recently interviewed Dem Presidential Candidate Corey Booker. Booker could not answer Tapper’s question about Gun Control for the life of him.

Tapper tried to redirect him numerous times before even he gave up trying. But instead of being appreciated for making Dems know that Booker had no idea how to stop shootings, he was scrutinized for his “horrible question.”

On Bill Maher’s “Real Time” on HBO, Charles Blow claimed Tapper was in the wrong with his “horrible question.”

“Because what we’re doing is picking out one incident out of 30,000 deaths per year and saying ‘How could you solve this one thing?’” Blow continued. “That is not the objective of gun control. The objective of gun control is to reduce capacity to kill people who should not be killed. And once you reframe it that way, maybe the proposal I have today will not solve that problem, but it cuts into this massive number of people that we are losing to gun violence.”

Tapper jumped on Twitter to defend himself.

“I asked which proposed gun laws might actually have had an impact on preventing a gun violence tragedy.”

Tapper then answered another criticism that claimed he was trying “to give cover to the right.”

What is the point of this question, except to give cover to the right? It’s absurd to ask which law would “prevent” a specific crime. It doesn’t work like that, and Jake knows it,” Critic Charles Johnson claimed.

There are plenty of proposed laws that could have an impact on reducing gun violence,” Tapper replied. “Here’s @amyklobuchar answering the same q. https://www.cnn.com/videos/tv/2019/06/04/lead-sen-amy-klobuchar-live-jake-tapper.cnn 

It’s odd that Tapper would be receiving any flack at all. Dems should be thanking him for uncovering that Booker is not ready to handle the tough questions that come with being president.

Chris Wallace followed up with Gillibrand the same way, and you could tell she is also inept. Presidents are going to be asked to answer hard questions, and dodging them shows us they are by no means ready to take on the responsibility.
