Jake Tapper Tries To Corner Florida Governor Into Condemning Elon Musk For Alleged Antisemitism

via Jimmy Kimmel Live on Youtube

CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed Republican Governor Rob DeSantis to denounce Elon Musk over an alleged anti-semitic tweet.

DeSantis, a supporter of Musk’s purchase of Twitter, claimed he hadn’t seen the tweet in question and defended Musk, stating he hadn’t witnessed any such behavior.

Tapper continued to push for condemnation, citing Musk’s influence and the impact of the alleged endorsement.

DeSantis maintained that he couldn’t pass judgment without seeing the context.

“I did not see the comment. So I know that Elon has had a target on his back ever since he purchased Twitter because I think he’s taking it in a direction that a lot of people, who are used to controlling the narrative, don’t like,” responded DeSantis.

Adding, “So I was a big supporter of him purchasing Twitter, I think they’re obviously still working some stuff out – but I did not see those comments.”

The original tweet was posted by “The Artist Formerly Known as Eric”. He accused Western Jewish people of “dialectical hatred against whites”.

“You have said the actual truth,” wrote Elon Musk in response.

Tapper pushed DeSantis on whether he was concerned about anti-semitism among conservatives and DeSantis did not budge from his position that he is concerned with anti-semitism in general, not necessarily in one place.

Tapper and DeSantis overlapped on problems at America’s universities, did not see eye to eye on Musk.

“I’m just saying Elon Musk is a pretty powerful guy and he’s out there endorsing some pretty hideous anti-semitic conspiracy theories and I still haven’t heard you condemn it,” said Tapper to DeSantis.

“Well because I haven’t seen it, I know you tried to read it – I have no idea what the context is,” repeated DeSantis.

“I know Elon Musk, I’ve never seen him doing anything – I think he’s a guy that believes in America. I’ve never seen him indulge in any of that, he explained.

“So it’s surprising if that’s true, but I have not seen it so I don’t want to sit there and pass judgment on the fly,” concluded DeSantis.

DeSantis maintained that he couldn’t pass judgment without seeing the context.

The issue has led to companies pulling ads from the platform, while the Babylon Bee pledged to spend $250,000 on ads, criticizing those withdrawing as “hating freedom.”
