CNN anchor Jake Tapper ripped reporters' "ridiculously sycophantic" questions to Hillary Clinton at a Monday news conference, saying the media hasn't applied the same standard with Donald Trump.

During a panel discussion led by Tapper Tuesday, Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany charged the media delivered nothing but softballs at Clinton's briefing on the eve of primaries that could seal her Democratic presidential nomination.

The Washington Free Beacon reports a third of the questions focused on how she felt about making history as the first woman to win a major party's nomination. 

"Secretary Clinton, is it setting in that you might be making some serious history here tomorrow?" one reporter asked, while another inquired: "People just come up to you and they get tears in their eyes. Do you feel the weight of what this means for people?" according to the Free Beacon.

Tapper came to McEnany's defense, saying the media's case that coverage of Trump is fair would be stronger if questions addressed to Clinton were as tough as the ones asked of Trump.

"Would the argument of reporters not be stronger if these ridiculously sycophantic questions that were asked of Hillary Clinton yesterday …would not that argument be stronger?" Tapper asked.

A clip of the exchange was posted by Mediaite.
