‘Maybe He’s Tapping Into the Porn Electorate!’: Anderson Cooper Goes Off on Trump Backer

screen-shot-2016-09-30-at-9-38-13-pmAnderson Cooper really went off on CNN Trump supporter Jeff Lord for trying to defend Donald Trump‘s sex tape tweet as somehow presidential.

Cooper asked him if it’s presidential and Lord responded, “Well, what does presidential mean?”

This went on for a bit before Cooper asked again, “Would you want the President of the United States to be up at 4 am encouraging people to go looking for a sex tape?”

Lord laughed and answered, “Yeah, if it’s worth looking for, Anderson.”

This befuddled Cooper so much, he just said, “I don’t even know what that means.”

Lord proceeded to argue that the old standard of what’s presidential and what’s isn’t is irrelevant. This is not a new argument for Lord, as earlier this year he defended the presidential-ness of Trump retweeting someone calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo.

They kept going back and forth on whether this was presidential, as Lord argued that the standards have changed and people like what he’s saying. At one point, Cooper just blurted out, “I get it, Porn is popular! Maybe he’s tapping into the porn electorate!”

Ana Navarro, meanwhile, pretty much lost it at Lord the entire segment, telling him to stop justifying gross “immature” behavior from Trump and maybe recommending he act like an adult. She cried, “Donald Trump is the only person I know who drunk-tweets sober!”
