CNN's Tapper Gets in Twitter War with Women's March Movement Over Their Support for Cop Killer Shakur

July 19, 2017  | 

CNN reporter and anchor Jake Tapper called out the Women's March yesterday on Twitter for their support for convicted cop killer Assata Shakur after the organization tweeted the fugitive a happy birthday message.

Shakur, born Joanne Deborah Chesimard, is currently on the FBI's Most Wanted list for murdering New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster in 1973. She was convicted in 1977 and escaped prison two years later. She is now hiding in Cuba.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Tapper in his outrage. "Unbelievable that anyone would idolize a cop killer. Chesimard belongs in jail, & #Cuba should return her to the US so she can face justice," he tweeted.

Response from anti-police activists, Shakur defenders, and the leader of the Women's March Linda Sarsour was furious. You can read it here.

So I guess those on the left have finally gone too far? If you are on the left and arguing with CNN anchors you have to know maybe you went too far. Maybe this can be a wake-up call for CNN and they can start to actually report on all the wrong that is coming from the left. But I bet that will be too much for them.
