Jake Tapper, the host of CNN’s “State Of The Union,” began his Sunday morning program by sharply ripping into Republican Senator Ted Cruz, and nearly a dozen other Republican Senators who have made it known that they are planning to take part in a political stunt during the certification of the presidential election.
Referring to the group of lawmakers as the “Diaper Sedition Caucasus,” Tapper ripped into them like a fart in a baby diaper, as their pictures were displayed on screen – each of them photoshopped wearing diapers.
“On Saturday, twelve Republican Senators, among them Ted Cruz, said they would show up in Congress next week to dispute the electoral certification of Joe Biden, by wearing diapers as a means of protest,” Tapper said, shaking his head. “The Diaper Caucus – or Diaper Squad to be more exact – which includes Senators Ted Cruz, and Mark Meadows, have been calling for, and I quote, “an emergency ten day audit of emergency returns’ despite there being no evidence of widespread election fraud. If they don’t get the ten days, they have promised to “soil the count.” Whatever that means, it doesn’t sound sanitary.”
“The Diaper Caucus is following the lead of Senator Josh Hawley who says he may or may not don a pair of diapers himself to object to Biden’s decisive win, despite there being zero credible evidence of fraud – zero. Hawley said whether he will wear a diaper or not depends on the circumstances. If enough of their supporters are also wearing diapers, then he said he will run to the men’s room like the Flash and change into his favorite pair of Pampers which he always carries with him for emergencies.
“Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska slammed Hawley and the others of the Diaper Sedition Caucus, saying, ‘Adults don’t wear loaded diapers to a government function to protest a vote! It’s disgusting! What the hell are they thinking? Did Charlie Kirk put them up to it? Are they adults or infants?’
“We invited each of the twelve Senators involved in plotting this disgraceful and embarrassing stunt, to appear on CNN to explain and defend their childish stunt. But of course, all of them have failed to respond. It all brings to mind what Ulysses Grant wrote in 1861: ‘There are two parties now, traitors and patriots.’ Or in this case, patriots and a party of poopers.”
