CNN anchor Jake Tapper posted a selfie on Twitter after he said he lost a bet with Pa. Lt. Gov. John Fetterman. In the selfie, Tapper -- a longtime Eagles fan -- donned a Steelers mask.

Apparently, Tapper and Fetterman placed a friendly wager that whichever team lost, that person would wear the opposing team’s mask for social media.

Chase Claypool’s record four-touchdown performance helped secure the win for both the Steelers and Fetterman.

After someone replied to Tapper’s tweet saying it hurt them to see him wearing that mask, Fetterman lightheartedly replied: “Not as much here in western Pa., (to be honest)."
