‘Who’s The Thug Here?’: Anderson Cooper Unleashes On Donald Trump

What the “president doesn’t seem to know or care is that the vast majority of those protesting, they, too, are calling for law and order. A Black man killed with four officers holding him down, a knee to the neck … that’s not law and order; that’s murder,” Cooper said.

He added: “I’ve seen societies fall apart as a reporter …. I’ve seen countries ripped apart by hate and misinformation, and political demagogues and racism. We can’t let that happen here.” 

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins told Cooper that peaceful protesters were attacked with tear gas and batons Monday so the president could look like a tough leader as he strolled to a nearby church to hold aloft a Bible for a photo-op (which infuriated church leaders). Trump orchestrated the scene because he was “upset” by media coverage that he had been rushed to a bunker in the White House for safety Friday night during protests, sources told Collins.

“Oh, my God,” Cooper responded.
