OOPS! CNN’s Jake Tapper Caught Misstating His Background To On Live TV

Very Fake News CNN anchor Jake Tapper was caught misstating his background on live television recently and then resorted to playing the victim once he was exposed.

Breitbart reported:

So, when Scaramucci appeared afterward on Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union with Tapper—who also hosts “The Lead with Jake Tapper” on weekdays—he was talking about it again. And interestingly, Tapper puffed up his own credentials trying to link himself back to the middle class and the working class in America—a link he does not have.

“I grew up in a very similar neighborhood in Philadelphia,” Tapper told Scaramucci on Sunday.

Tapper, when he was growing up, went to a private elite high school with exorbitant tuition rates. The Akiba Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. His father was a graduate of Harvard Medical School, and a wealthy pediatrician. Before Harvard, Tapper’s father went to Dartmouth—another Ivy League school that Tapper would eventually attend.

Tapper and CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas have not answered detailed questions from Breitbart News about how much money Tapper’s family paid for him to go to Akiba or how they paid it—renamed in 2007 the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy after a $5 million donation from the Barrack family. Tuition at the Barrack Hebrew Academy, according to its website, is now in the range of $26,500 to $32,500 per year. The school’s finance director has not responded to a request for comment on how much tuition would have been in the 1980s when Tapper went there.
