WOW: WATCH Jake Tapper GRILL Sheriff Israel in BRUTAL interview (gun-control harpies FREAK)

CNN State of the Union savage anchor Jake Tapper took Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to task Sunday morning after his department received more than 20 warnings about the former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student who killed 17 people earlier this month.

Tapper interviewed Israel on CNN’s “State of the Union” for about 30 minutes Sunday, grilling him for his office’s failure to stop Nikolas Cruz before he took a rifle to the Parkland, Fla, high school. When Israel refused to take responsibility for something not being done about Cruz in the months before the shooting, Tapper was incredulous.

“Are you really not taking any responsibility for the multiple red flags that were brought to the attention of the Broward sheriff’s office about this shooter before this incident, whether it was people near him, close to him calling the police?” Tapper asked.

Israel responded, “Jake, I can only take responsibility for what I knew about. I exercised my due diligence. I’ve given amazing leadership to this agency.”

Tapper said the public can quite fairly question how well Israel is leading his department.

“Maybe you measure somebody’s leadership by whether or not they protect the community. You’ve listed 23 incidents before the shooting involving the shooter and still nothing was done to keep guns out of his hands, to make sure that the school was protected, to make sure you were keeping an eye on him — I don’t understand how you can sit there and claim amazing leadership,” Tapper said.

He added, “I think there are a lot of people who think a lot of mistakes other than that one, deputy.”

How is social media reacting?

Israel doesn’t know anything except he should keep trying to blame the NRA for the shooting because it’s looking worse and worse for him and his department.

‘Um, I’m not sure what was done with that information. But Peterson did, uhh, report Cruz …’

They’ll find out what they did or didn’t do? Sure you will.

Before or after you apologize to Dana Loesch and the NRA for dumping them under the bus?

And he claims he only went to the Town Hall to advocate for expanding an officer’s ability to do more than write a report. Wow, could this guy be any more full of it? Wait, don’t answer that.

It was actually really well done. Probably because Jake is tired of his outlet taking heat for allowing Israel to come to their Town Hall and blame Dana Loesch and the NRA for something they had nothing to do with.

No kidding.

Of course, he won’t.

If we rolled our eyes any harder we’d have to go to the ER.


Oh, and speaking of rolling eyes, check out the hysteria from gun-grabbers who were pissed at Jake for asking the sheriff REAL questions:

Waaaaah! You didn’t kiss the sheriff’s butt this time!


Seriously, this is delicious.

These. People.

You know, we give Jake a lot of flack but when he does something right, we also try and give him credit where it’s due.

And it’s due today.

Thanks, Jake.
