CNN’s Jake Tapper found himself a part of the latest WikiLeaks release of hacked emails.
The first batch of over 2,000 emails allegedly from Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s personal email account revealed one directly naming Tapper.
“Why is Jake Tapper such a dick?” read a part of the exchange between Podesta and Clinton’s deputy press secretary, Kristina Schake, as they discussed Tapper’s request to interview the former Secretary of State for an hour.
Tapper posted the comment on Twitter along with his own response.

Tapper found plenty of applause from others in the media and even a comment from Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri.
@jaketapper well played.
