CNN anchor and chief political correspondent Jake Tapper has seen it all in the past few years. But some Twitter users are worried that the coverage of the Trump Putin summit has broken him.
feels like we’re a week away from the CNN chyron just reading ‘FUCK IT’ while Jake Tapper sits there naked eating a tub of ice cream with a ladle pic.twitter.com/gK8sDTX90b— Matt Oswalt (@MattOswaltVA) July 17, 2018
Comedian Matt Oswalt originally tweeted out the photo of Tapper on Monday, along with his speculation that Tapper would be driven to liberate himself from his clothing and drown his woes in some ice cream.
The photo does paint an austere scene: An abnormally blank faced Tapper stares out from the screen as the CNN chyron simply reads “OUTRAGE.” Gone is the Tapper who blasted Kellyanne Conway for allegations of fake news, or who succinctly shut down Steve Bannon’s requests that the media silence itself.
Other Twitter users weighed in on future Tapper and chyron couplings.
Another week after that and Tapper’s IN the tub of ice cream. Same chyron.— Patrick Cant (@newswhore) July 17, 2018
Others took offense to Oswalt’s speculation on Tapper’s state of dress.
Uh, he’d have a tie on. Jake is a gentleman.— JennaBruce ?? (@botfish) July 17, 2018
