Jake Tapper LIES About Aaron Rodgers Defending Sandy Hook Conspiracy

Possibly scared that third-party presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was going to hurt President Biden’s reelection chances, CNN’s Jake Tapper (a Democratic Party operative in his youth) and Pamela Brown launched a smear campaign against one of the people Kennedy was eyeing for vice president: New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Despite how unlikely it was that Rodgers would accept the request, the dangers were too great and the dastardly duo floated a poorly sourced smear campaign claiming Rodgers believed the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook school shooting was fake.

And when Rodgers denied their allegations, Tapper took to his CNN show The Lead on Thursday to falsely claim that Rodgers was not only refusing to deny the allegations but actively defending the conspiracy theory.

Following the publishing of CNN’s hit piece, Rodgers released a statement saying:

As I’m on the record saying in the past, what happened in Sandy Hook was an absolute tragedy. I am not and have never been of the opinion that the events did not take place. Again, I hope that we learn from this and other tragedies to identify the signs that will allow us to prevent unnecessary loss of life. My thoughts and prayers continue to remain with the families affected along with the entire Sandy Hook community.

Despite Rodgers clearly saying he had “never been of the opinion that the events did not take place,” Tapper was intent on gaslighting his viewers and insisted that Rodgers was not denying the allegations he smeared him with; he even suggested Rodgers was not addressing their story at all.
