Jake Tapper has come a long way from the RCA Victor Puppy Dog he used to portray on many of his interviews, head cocked aside, silly deferential expression front and center. Yep. He has my admiration going head to head with Mr. Manafort of the Trump campaign. Mr Manafort is no shrinking violet himself manifesting a strongman presence guaranteed to make the strongest of media types take a second thought before confronting him. Yep. Jake gotta pair.
