Anderson Cooper Gives ‘Prebuttal’ to Trump Address: ‘The White House Has Continued to Fudge the Facts’

CNN’s Anderson Cooper opened tonight with a “prebuttal” to President Donald Trump‘s Oval Office address to the nation tonight.

He emphasized the gravity of Oval Office addresses before saying, “In the past, with only rare exceptions, you might disagree with what a president said from the Oval Office without wondering if you were straight-up being lied to. Keeping them honest, sadly, that’s not the case tonight.”

Cooper brought up Trump’s “crisis of credibility” and offered viewers a guide of sorts to what to expect when “the White House has continued to fudge the facts as late as today.”

He specifically called out some claims by Vice President Mike Pence today. The VP himself was confronted on the serious credibility issues surrounding the President.
