|Pictured: Anderson Cooper setting the|
bar for journalists. And to be clear, I'm
not being sarcastic. Like at all.
"If he [President Trump] took a dump on his desk, you would defend him."
-Anderson Cooper, presumably while
mentally writing his apology Tweet
Yes, that's Anderson Cooper inviting everyone to imagine President Trump shitting on the desk of the Oval Office; an image with no small amount of figurative truth to it.
|Above: The desk in question, just in case you needed help with the visual.|
|He literally wrote the|
book on defending Trump.
|Pictured: Lord, in front of a photo of Reagan,|
defending Trump recklessly divulging intel to
the Russians. Not pictured: a sense of irony.
"I don't care, I mean, I don't care what he says to the Russian Prime-to the Russians. I, I mean, he's the President of the United States..."
-Jeffry Lord explaining that Trump is
blameless in all things forever
|"Welcome to the White House Minister, |
can I get you anything? A drink? Detailed
schematics of our nuclear deterrent system?"
-Trump, for all we know
|Of course, in theory the President is|
usually the one most of us voted for
so...well, here we are, right?
|"Um, no, as a matter of fact you cannot."|
-All lawyers everywhere
"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful-I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just Kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything...Grab'em by the pussy. You can do anything."
-The guy who would go on to
technically win the 2016 election
Yes, I'm trotting that one out again. Sure, it's from 2005, but feel free to substitute pretty much anything he's said aloud or Tweeted before, during or after the campaign or at any point during his Presidency so far. It's all unrepentantly awful. The point is I think we're well past feigning moral outrage about how people talk about President Trump.
|Trump, Billy Bush and Arianne Zucker, the women they, moments earlier, |
were discussing assaulting. Sexually. So Cooper was out of line, how?
