(FiveNation.com)- We all knew the CNN was fake news but did you ever think they’d want to stop you from celebrating Christmas with your family?
If Jake Tapper’s words on Sunday are to be believed, then that seems to be the case.
During a discussion with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the most high-profile member of President Donald Trump’s White House Coronavirus Task Force, Tapper suggested that celebrating Christmas wasn’t looking wise.
Tapper asked Fauci about the COVID-19 vaccine that will soon be distributed across the United States and interpreted Fauci’s response in the most negative way possible.
Fauci explained that it was likely that even with the COVID-19 vaccine, it will take time to distribute the vaccine to enough people to offer sufficient protection from the virus. He said that the world will need to continue taking steps to prevent the spread of the virus, prompting Tapper to ask, “So, not until the second or third quarter of 2021?”
“Christmas is probably not going to be possible,” he added.

Tapper walked back his comments when criticized by One America News Network host Jack Posobiec, a conservative who is often dishonestly accused of being a neo-Nazi. How many neo-Nazis host news shows on cable TV? The mind boggles…
The CNN anchor claimed he was “obviously talking about whether families would be able to *safely* observe and celebrate Christmas together,” before jumping on the call-everyone-a-nazi bandwagon and suggesting the criticism was only directed at him because he is Jewish.
I was obviously talking about whether families would be able to *safely* observe and celebrate Christmas together. But sure, attack the Jew. Nice work, everyone. https://t.co/vl5DDPJTTr

“But sure, attack the Jew,” he said. “Nice work, everyone.”
There is no evidence that news anchor Posobiec leveled the criticism at him because of his religion or background. In fact, Posobiec never even mentioned it.
Fauci didn’t respond to the Christmas comments but has previously said that he does not believe there is an “appetite” for fresh lockdowns and that the United States can tackle the disease without implementing them again.
