Ben Domenech Rips Jake Tapper’s ‘Special Flower’ Ego, Became a ‘Joke’

In a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, Federalist Founder Ben Domenech scored a critical hit on CNN’s Jake Tapper after the CNN host made disparaging comments against Congressman Brian Mast, questioning the wounded veteran’s dedication to America and democracy.

In his rhetorical thrashing, Domenech used his cutting words to call out Tapper for his fragile ego, his use of veterans as a virtue shield, and CNN for becoming a joke (Tapper too).

Teeing up Domenech, Ingraham played a soundbite of what she accurately described as Tapper’s “shameful comment”:

JAKE TAPPER: Congressman Brian Mast.

DANA BASH: Mm hmm.

TAPPER: A Republican from Florida, who lost his legs, by the way, fighting for democracy abroad. Although, I don't know what his – I don’t know about his commitment to it here in the United States.
