One-Liner Wednesday — The Master of the Understatement


“This might come as news to you, but sometimes he makes things up.”

Jake Trapper to Stephen Colbert

Jake Tapper is an American journalist and author, Chief Washington Correspondent for CNN, anchor of the CNN weekday television news show “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” and anchor of the CNN Sunday morning political affairs program “State of the Union.”

Stephen Colbert is an American comedian, writer, producer, actor, and television host. He is best known for hosting the satirical Comedy Central program “The Colbert Report” and the CBS talk program “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

The quote at the top of this post is something Jake Tapper said to Stephen Colbert a few nights ago on “The Late Show.” Of course, the “he” Tapper was referring to was Donald Trump.

I said to my wife as we were watching the show, “Jake Tapper is the master of the understatement.”

    I also enjoyed that he said they didn’t have collars at Dartmouth.
