Anderson Cooper Starts Off His Show by Saying ‘Tonight We Know the President Has No Facts’


CNN’s Anderson Cooper tonight opened his show by saying, “Tonight we know the president of the United States has no facts.”

Cooper opened with a “Keeping Them Honest” segment on the president’s claims of wiretapping, saying that “we know the president has no facts to back up his early morning Saturday tweet storm because in today’s White House briefing, Press Secretary Sean Spicer read a long list of media reports that he seemed to believe back up the president’s claims. Media reports.”

Cooper said that Trump could have easily found out the truth about all this because, well, he’s the president, and he even likened Trump’s “tease” on wiretapping to how he teased people years ago about more information that was going to come out about President Obama‘s citizenship.

A little later, he brought on Matthew Rosenberg, one of The New York Times reporters behind the piece that Trump and people in his orbit have held up as proof backing up their claims.

Rosenberg told Cooper, “It’s getting bizarre at this point, because we’ve said very clearly on your show that that’s not what the story said. Anybody can read the story and see that’s not what it said.”
