USN probably believes these guys aren't Left wing props, being used to smear and troll Sessions.  Wonder what he'd say if a couple of guys dressed up in ISIS gear showed up to support Obama.

An Asian-American has little value as an empathy prop. Everyone knows they are smarter and harder working than we are.  

Heck, Asian politicians probably use American kids as props.  ;D

MTV should fire this person if,,they want to be regarded as a credible news source.  At the very least, they should send this writer to sensitivity training.

No, not at all. I think you're the one not getting it. Sure, it's one thing to suggest the kid was being displayed , you know, to show Sessions as he ACTUALLY is. I get that. But to claim his family member was stolen from a Toy R Us, and for him to return it, wasn't in the least big going too far in your view, huh ?

Terrible.

Sessions, sir, kindly return this Asian baby to the Toys “R” Us you stole her from pic.twitter.com/SBkI3DWHZn

There was no joke here. It was flat out derogatory and meant to be exactly that.

MTV writer showed what an idiot he is. You don't go after kids or grand kids. It showed a total lack of class.

Calling the Kid a Toys R Us Kid that is going after the Kid.  Most of the people who don't like Sessions took it that way to.

It was obviously a joke man, maybe distasteful, but isn't that what MTV is supposed to be to adults? or that's how they used to be at least.

 MTV use to be about music, and videos. Martha Quinn and company generally stayed away from politics. Thats when MTV was its best.

For all I know he's just as crazy as you are.

Go back to sleep, gramps. 

 The fact that you do not recognize a name of a prominent cablenews reporter who covers politics is sort of funny.  Further, that I gave you the man's name, and where he worked, should have clued you in at least a little. But instead of being curious in the least bit, you knee jerk react with a comment that  "...   he's just as crazy as you are. "

 Homer, the inter-webs is your friend. Maybe you could've taken two seconds, or possibly three, four, or even five to look up this guy on Google/Bing.  

 

 Sometimes it's not even fun, because you make it so damn easy. :roflol: !!!!


Good grief, I'll do your homework for you. THIS time. 

Jacob Paul "Jake" Tapper (born March 12, 1969) is an American journalist, cartoonist, and author. As of 2016, Tapper is the Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN, anchor of the CNN weekday television news show The Lead with Jake Tapper, and anchor of the CNN and CNN International Sunday morning affairs program State of the Union. In 2016, The Lead was honored with two National Headliner Awards: Best Newscast (Broadcast television networks, cable networks and syndicators) and Best Coverage of a Major News Event (Broadcast television networks, cable networks and syndicators newscast) for the show's coverage of the Paris terrorist attacks in 2015.[2]

Prior to working for CNN, Tapper worked for ABC News. The White House Correspondents' Association honored his work as Senior White House Correspondent with ABC News with three Merriman Smith Memorial Awards for broadcast journalism, an unprecedented three times in a row.[3][4][5]

Tapper contributed to the coverage of the inauguration of President Obama that earned an Emmy Award for Outstanding Live Coverage of a Current News Story. Tapper was part of a team that was awarded an Edward R. Murrow award for Video: Breaking News for "Target bin Laden: The Death of Public Enemy #1."

His book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor debuted at Number 10 in November 2012 on the New York Times Bestseller list for hardback non-fiction. Tapper's book and his reporting on the veterans and troops were cited when the Congressional Medal of Honor Society awarded him the "Tex" McCrary Award for Excellence in Journalism.[6]

The Republican primary debate Tapper moderated in September 2015 drew more than 23 million viewers, making it the most-watched program in the history of CNN and the second-most watched primary debate ever.[7] He also moderated the March 10, 2016 Republican presidential debate in Miami, which drew almost 12 million viewers[8] and according to Variety "garnered acclaim for its substance."[9]
