Cooper on Friday was askingJeffrey Lord, a CNN contributor and Trump surrogate, about the president reportedly calling former FBI Director James Comey a nut job to Russian officials at the White House. But Lord continued his unconditional support for Trump, saying U.S. presidents can say whatever they want.
I dont care what he says to the Russians. I mean, hes the president of the United States, Lord said. If he wants to say that, if Barack Obama wants to say whatever, if George Bush says I looked in his eyes …
Cooper, apparently fed up, interrupted: If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.
The sharp comment made Lord laugh.
Coopers not the only one frustrated by Lords on-air ramblings.
Last year, Lord claimed there were no people of color in the United States,which upset Latina political commentator Maria Cardona. In April, he called Trump the Martin Luther King of health care, to the shock of fellow TV panelists.
So, when Cooper dropped his dump-on-his-desk comment, some people said it was a long time coming.
