ABC White House Correspondent Jake Tapper had this to say after conservative bloggers caused a ruckus by running with a story based on an earlier tweet of his.
So what did he say? Tapper tweeted that an American flag was removed from ground zero just moments before he was to appear live on ABC World News Tonight. The conservative bloggers said President Obama ordered the flag removed.
First of all, the removal took place long after Obama was gone, and secondly, the flag is removed at night and replaced each morning.
"Are ppl actually reading conspiracy into Ground Zero construction workers taking down a flag at end of day? Get a grip, ppl," tweeted Tapper. "People don’t know flags are taken down each night and raised each morning? Good God, read a book."
