Newsmax host Greta Van Susteren — and several others — questioned whether CNN anchor Jake Tapper was the right choice to moderate the agreed-upon debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Van Susteren, who worked at CNN for a time herself, raised the question of Tapper’s personal bias — specifically when it came to former President Trump — and wondered whether he would be able to set aside his views and moderate fairly.

“Is Jake Tapper really the right one at CNN to moderate the debate?” she asked. “If you review his texts, he certainly has ‘put his cards on the table.’ Whether you are for or against Trump, it is imperative that the debate not only be fair but have the appearance of it … and if someone has already ‘put his cards on the table,’ is this really the right choice? Below from 2021:”

Van Susteren shared a post from Tapper that read, “Once a politician spreads the Big Lie, he’s in. And it often leads to more lies, and conspiracy theories, and insulting police officers who tried to protect the Capitol on January 6.”

And Van Susteren was not the only one to raise the question regarding Tapper. Fox News media reporter Joseph Wulfsohn published a number of things Tapper has said about Trump, captioning his post, “A look back at comments made by CNN debate moderator Jake Tapper, who called Trump’s presidency a ‘nightmare,’ linked him to Hitler, retweeted that he’s ‘100% insane,’ and spearheaded CNN’s Russiagate coverage.”

Just The News also posted a lengthy list of  comments and statements from Tapper about Trump that showed his personal feelings and cast doubt on his ability to be impartial while moderating a debate in which Trump was participating.
