Jake Tapper is not about to take crap from scummy Roland S. Martin, the loser who appears to be an accomplice in the stolen questions that were given to Hillary Clinton during the Democrat primary.
Tapper called him out brazenly on Twitter:
I’m really not in a place to be lectured by @rolandsmartin on journalism. And certainly not until he and TV One give a full accounting for how their town hall questions “ended up” in the Clinton campaign’s inbox. Public has a right to know. https://t.co/pFBE2bc9Om— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
Ohhhh dayam… for those who have been watching my Twitter account closely, I’ve been railing about this issue ever since the primaries. Roland Martin answered no questions about it and got off scot free.
Here’s how the interaction started – Martin made some idiotic snide remark having to do with this clip from Mediaite:

Martin of course, had no answers.

And he runs away with his tail between his legs.
Here’s @rolandsmartin refusing to explain how his town hall questions went from @tvonetv’s possession to the Clinton campaign.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
Zero accountability, zero transparency, zero explanation, zero contrition. https://t.co/4aMsGqt9DT
He ain’t wrong.
It would be good of @tvonetv to explain how your questions went from you to Donna to the Clinton campaign. They had NONE of CNN’s questions. And a bunch of yours.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
So Tapper continued to hit him:
Wrong. The questions went from Roland or someone on his team to Donna Brazile to the Clinton campaign. As soon as CNN found out it fired Donna as a commentator.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
Nonsense. Roland and TVOne conducted one of the most unethical acts I’ve ever seen in media and they have yet to even explain it. So I’m not inclined to listen to his journalism lectures.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
Roland Martin likes to talk a lot of crap, but then runs off like a skunk when he knows he’s caught. I know – he blocked me a long time ago when I challenged him.
The one thing clear from @rolandsmartin's tweets today is he wants to discuss everything under the sun other than his team's unethical leaking of his town hall questions to the Clinton campaign. Period.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) November 12, 2017
Tapper nailed Roland to the wall on this. It’s amazing that he and OneTV was able to get away with it. I wrote about this way back in November of 2016 – you can read that here.
