CNN’s Jake Tapper has truly gone beyond the valley of good taste.
Rep. Brian Mast of Florida, who is a veteran and lost his legs while serving, spoke out against the Democrats’ dumb impeachment this week, leading Tapper to question his commitment to Democracy.
Is there any low that’s not too low for CNN?

Rep. Mast responded:
I lost two legs for @jaketapper's right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election. https://t.co/ViNrwz9cbU
