CNN’S JAKE TAPPER URGED REPUBLICAN SEAN PARNELL NOT TO RUN AGAINST DEMOCRAT REP. CONOR LAMB 

“As the election gears up, the political maestro @jaketapper will hold down my hour and his for the coming weeks. Wish I was was with you, but I’ll see ya on [TV] on the flip side of the election,” Baldwin wrote.

CNN did not immediately respond to a series of questions, including if it was her decision to step aside and if she will return to her role following the election.

Baldwin responded to a variety of comments on the post, insisting she’s “healthy” and will be back but she did not want to be taken off the air.

A fan asked, “Why are you taking so many weeks off at such an important time?”

“Not my choice,” Baldwin responded.

Oct 1, 2020: It was on this day TEN YEARS AGO when I first started anchoring my own show on CNN (technically it wasn’t *my* show that very first day… but little did I know, after an unexpected chain of events, those two hours would become mine). I have cherished my time with you this past decade. It’s been a dream of mine to work at CNN… I’m a home town girl (ATL 🍑), and this has always been my hometown network. In the last ten years, we’ve witnessed history together. I’ve laughed and cried with you… I’ve rung in many a New Year with you 🥂. I’ve been sick with you. I have GROWN with you. Sitting in that seat live on CNN every afternoon has been and still is an absolute privilege. I’m a marker of major moments and this day matters to me every year — and I owe you all a massive THANK YOU. Thank you for tuning in. Thank you for finding me here on IG. Thank you for caring. As the election gears up, the political maestro @jaketapper will hold down my hour and his for the coming weeks. Wish I was was with you, but I’ll see ya on 📺 on the flip side of the election. In the meantime, you know where to find me. Oh, and you see my necklace? Don’t forget to vote. 👊🏼 #gratitude #10years #anchorversary #cnn #Journalism #thankyou Me today —> Me 10 years ago #notanaturalblonde 😉

CNN’S JAKE TAPPER UNDER FIRE FOR ADMITTING HE DIDN’T FACT-CHECK AOC ON TRUMP-CORONAVIRUS CLAIM

Baldwin began the lengthy Instagram post by celebrating the anniversary of her first day on the job.

“Oct 1, 2020: It was on this day TEN YEARS AGO when I first started anchoring my own show on CNN (technically it wasn’t *my* show that very first day… but little did I know, after an unexpected chain of events, those two hours would become mine).

CNN’S JAKE TAPPER PESTERED GOP CANDIDATE SEAN PARNELL FOR STATEMENT DISMISSING SCANDALOUS DM: SOURCE

Baldwin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this year, Baldwin had a public battle with coronavirus that she eventually recovered from.

Tapper recently came under fire when a Twitter direct message obtained by Fox News indicated that he had attempted to convince Republican Sean Parnell not to run against incumbent Democrat Rep. Conor Lamb for a Western Pennsylvania House seat.

Tapper, who bills himself as a nonpartisan newsman, anchors CNN’s weekday newscast “The Lead With Jake Tapper” and Sunday morning’s “State of the Union” political program. He will now apparently take on another gig at the liberal network on the heels of Mark Levin pointing out his tendency to promote anti-Trump articles on social media.

“Check out Jake Tapper’s Twitter account,” Levin tweeted on Thursday. “Does this look like a serious, impartial, professional journalist or a Trump-hating Democrat hack?”
