Jake Tapper Schools House GOP for Treating Speaker’s Gavel Like ‘Prom King’


“The country needs a speaker. It’s not about, you know, prom king. Like, we need a functioning legislative branch,” the CNN host said during an interview with Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.) on “The Lead.”

Tapper’s comments come as Republicans return to square one as Jordan’s hopes of winning the job collapsed in a leaderless House.

Republicans, who have been seeking to replace ousted former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) since earlier this month, have been unable to rally behind a presidential candidate who could take the job with 217 votes out of the 221-member conference. House GOP.

Tapper asked Womack on Friday if the party had considered ranked-choice voting to find a “compromise candidate.”

Womack, who criticized members of his party for “peeing on the electric fence” elsewhere in the interview, noted “deep wounds,” “hurt feelings” and “angry people” within the GOP before the CNN host intervened.

“I know but you know what? None of us here care. It’s just like getting over it,” said Tapper, who compared a fight on social networks between Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) and Rep. Greg Murphy (R-N.C.) at “high school.”

“It’s a little offensive to high school kids because it’s really junior high stuff,” Womack responded.
