Tapper Confronts Manafort: ‘These Things, Just Because You Say Them, They’re Not True!’

CNN’s Jake Tapper got pretty confrontational with Donald Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort after he kept lashing out at the media for taking focus away from Trump’s big message.

Tapper repeatedly pressed Manafort on Trump’s lack of focus. Manafort immediately began by criticizing the media for focusing on controversies like “Second Amendment people” during what was a “very substantive” week for them.

Tapper pointed out that Trump was the one who took his message off the rails with that message people interpreted to be a violent warning. Manafort complained to Tapper that he could have been covering pay-for-play allegations surrounding Clinton.

In response, Tapper said he has covered that, and he even told Manafort, “These things, just because you say them, they’re not true! We have been covering the substance!”

Manafort insisted the media’s distracting away from the message. Tapper asked, “And Mr. Trump bears no responsibility for his campaign being off-message?”
