Jake Tapper: John McCain's Disinvitation of Trump to His Funeral "Is a Real Moment for the Country"

#JakesHarem, I'm sure, finds this just more proof that Jake Tapper is Thunderlips, The Ultimate Male.

The rest of us find him to be an unhinged lightweight hack.

Let me go on record: I think it's fine that John McCain doesn't want Trump at his funeral. I think it's fine to tell the White House that. I think it's understandable, given Trump's crack about McCain, McCain's devotion to the Establishment and liberal Republican wing, and McCain's near-Jake-Tapper-levels of self-regard and prickliness.

But John McCain has always been prickly and thin-skinned. Disinviting Trump is not a breach on John McCain's part -- he owed Trump nothing at all, not even courtesy.

But neither is it a "real moment for the country." It's just a guy with a lot of ego and a lot of anger doing something you'd expect him to do.

Again: There's nothing wrong with what McCain's choice to disinvite Trump. Even someone who wasn't egotistical and angry would probably do the same.

But is it in any way unexpected?

Is this man bites dog or dog bites man? Surely the latter.

The surprising thing would be for McCain to rise above it. But he's never been known for that. (Again -- McCain is not obliged to rise above anything. Just saying, him rising above it would be newsworthy.)

There is no "real moment" here, nor is there any surprise in the infamously thin-skinned, petty, angry and vindictive Jake Tapper thinking John McCain is just swell for sending out Funeral Disinvitation DM.

CNN's Jake Tapper is weighing in on a New York Times report that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) doesn't want President Trump at his funeral, calling it a "real moment for the country."

"This is a real moment for the country where an American hero, somebody who is beloved in many, many ways, is saying, 'I don't want this guy at my funeral,'" Tapper said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

Jake Tapper loves the vets, which he loves to tell you whenever there's a CNN scandal he's trying to deflect from.
