Friday night on CNN, Anderson Cooper was speaking with conservative political commentator and strategist Jeffrey Lord about the latest scandal presently threatening to consume the Trump presidency.
Cooper asked Lord whether the president’s recently revealed comments to the Russian ambassador–where he categorized former FBI director James Comey as a “nut job”–were smart under the circumstances.
Lord defended the president, saying he didn’t care what he said to the Russians–and that it was well within his rights to do so.
Cooper then replied that Lord would defend President Trump “if he took a dump on his desk.”
UPDATE –– 10:47 pm ET: Cooper has since apologized.
Watch Lord’s reaction above, via CNN.
