Republican Sen. John Kennedy, of Louisiana, also made an appearance and he mocked “the cultured, cosmopolitan, goats milk latte-drinking, avocado toast-eating insiders elite.”

“As a deplorable, I believe that everybody counts, and I care about you,” he told the crowd.

Over on CNN, meanwhile, Anderson Cooper scored 240,000 viewers in the demo and 1.102 million total in the 8 pm hour.
