CNN host Anderson Cooper came unglued on Thursday night as he had a deranged anti-Donald Trump meltdown on live television.
The Hill reported that Cooper whined that Trump’s interview with “Fox & Friends” earlier in the day sounded like “the rantings of Richard Nixon.” Cooper said this immediately after legal expert Alan Dershowitz focused on Trump’s suggestion during the interview that he could interfere with the Justice Department’s investigations.“I think it would go down a very bad road for us to start parsing the president’s words to determine whether or not the president of the United States is exercising his authority under Article II or violating the law,” Dershowitz said.
“How do you ever interpret statements made by Donald Trump?” he said. “He made a vague, general statement intended to convey different points to different people.”
“Professor Dershowitz, don’t you think that it’s kind of surreal that we are in a place now as a country where we’re like, ‘Oh, don’t listen to the president,’ like he’s a crazy person on a park bench with an onion tied to his belt, just mumbling incoherently,” Cooper said. “You’re saying, ‘don’t parse these words.’ You’re saying, essentially, don’t listen to him, don’t pay attention to the words that come out of his mouth because they really have no meaning, that’s basically what you’re saying.”
Dershowitz explained to Cooper that he meant that Trump’s words should not be interpreted to determine if he committed a crime, unless it’s clear exactly what Trump is saying.
“Now this particular president…speaks in a way that sends conflicting messages throughout and I wish as an American citizen he wouldn’t speak in this way and if I were his lawyer, which I am not, I would advise him not to speak in this way,” Dershowitz said.
“It was like listening to the rantings of Richard Nixon on the tapes,” Cooper said. “Except this is on live television. He’s calling in, screaming, yelling into the telephone.”
Twitter users, however, made it clear that they did not agree with Cooper:
Jealousy somehow fits Anderson

Anderson Cooper & 9-year Boyfriend Benjamin Maisani Split up recently. Perhaps, mama's little boy is letting his emotions run away with him by attacking President Trump, a Man who evidently intimidates him. Cooper identified much easier with pussy-willow Barack Hussein Obama. pic.twitter.com/i99vkzY5F2
