Chris Cuomo Praises Anderson Cooper for Marathon Chat With Steve Bannon: ‘What an Important Interview’

CNN’s Anderson Cooper sat down with former Trump White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon for a lengthy one-on-one on Wednesday.

The interview touched on Bannon’s past comments including claims that  “2019 will be the most vitriolic year in American politics” and more recent remarks that Trump will go “full animal” against his enemies now that that the Mueller probe was over.

Yet, the interview was mostly devoid of serious challenges from Cooper, including this moment where Bannon opined that Russian interference was largely “marginalia”:

Nonetheless, shortly after the interview, CNN’s Chris Cuomo seemed to be all praise.

“My favorite word from the Bannon interview that I learned tonight, marginalia,” Cuomo told Cooper. “All the Russian interference, marginalia. I had to look it up and it means what I thought it meant, which is something opposite than the truth.”

Cuomo then said this: “What an important interview to have on, though, Good for you.”
