GOP Rep. who lost both legs in Afghanistan fires back at CNN’s Tapper, who questioned his commitment to Democracy in America

CNN’s Jake Tapper is taking heat for questioning Republican lawmaker Brian Mast’s commitment to Democracy in America.

Mast lost both legs serving our military in Afghanistan.

Tapper said about Rep. Brian Mast “Congressman Brian Mast… who lost his legs by the way fighting for democracy abroad, although I don’t know — about his commitment to it here in the United States.”

Rep. Brian Mast replied “I lost two legs for @jaketapper’s right to say whatever the hell he wants, but that free speech also protects the Republicans he is so eager to condemn for asking Constitutional questions about the election.”

One Twitter user fired back at Tapper “@jaketapper what a disgraceful thing to say.”

Dave Rubin said “This might be the most vile thing ever said on cable news.”
