The good Jake Tapper made an appearance Tuesday in the second hour of CNN’s The Lead as he did a segment with his panel calling out New York Times opinion writer and MSNBC guest Wajahat Ali for his racist and sexist smear Sunday of 2024 GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley as “us[ing] her brown skin to launder white supremacist talking points.” At one point, Tapper said it was a reminder “there is a very ugly sign of the left that comes out when Nikki Haley runs for office.”

Tapper pivoted from the umpteenth January 6 discussion to Ali’s comments, including the clip in question of Ali stating the following: “She uses her brown skin as a weapon against poor black folks and poor brown folks, and she uses her brown skin to launder white supremacist talking points. And the reason why I feel sad is because no matter what she does, Medhi, it’ll never be enough. They’ll never love her.”
