Jake Tapper gives union boss a reality check after he blames GOP senator for starting feud that erupted at Senate hearing – By Chris Enloe (The Blaze) / Nov 15, 2023
CNN anchor Jake Tapper dished out the truth on Tuesday when Teamsters president Sean O’Brien used Tapper’s show to continue bashing Sen. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.).
Earlier in the day, Mullin challenged O’Brien to a fight in the middle of a Senate hearing — a challenge O’Brien accepted — awakening a months-long feud that began when O’Brien personally attacked Mullin. Ultimately, no one fought after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) intervened and re-established hearing decorum.
On CNN, Tapper asked O’Brien for his reaction to that heated moment after reminding him that Mullin is a former professional MMA fighter with an undefeated record.
