Anderson Cooper Rips Trump Supporters – Says They Can’t Claim ‘They Are Lovers Of Law And Order’

CNN host Anderson Cooper went after supporters of former President Donald Trump on Tuesday night as he responded to the video that the House impeachment managers presented on Tuesday.

He went so far as to say that those who still stand by Trump can no longer claim to be “lovers of law and order.”

Cooper Attacks Trump Supporters

“Any watching of the video that was played just today in the Senate Chambers, after watching that, the president’s supporters who were attacking the Capitol, the former president of the United States cannot claim to be a law-and-order president when you have the crowds chanting ‘kill the blue,'” Cooper said.

“We saw them hurling insults and fists and objects and the American flag and hockey stick at officers,” he added. “As you said, gouging out an eye, an officer lost three fingers, and one officer was killed.”

“Two others have died by suicide,” Cooper concluded. “Any claim by them that they are lovers of law and order, it rings hollow, certainly after seeing that.”

Don Lemon Mocks Trump Supporters

Cooper’s CNN colleague Don Lemon had similar words for Trump supporters last night.

“Blue lives matter, huh?” he asked condescendingly, before. adding, “Law and order! Law and order! Blue lives matter! Respect the flags! Respect law enforcement! Why don’t you just comply!

“Don’t you dare even say that again if you can stand by after that video and give Donald Trump — of all people, Donald Trump — … and his mob a pass,” he added.

“If you can do that, I don’t ever want to hear that again. I don’t want to hear that from you,” Lemon said. “I don’t want to hear family values from you. I don’t want to hear respect police officers from you. Don’t wanna hear it. No moral high ground to stand on.”

“Look whose on your side there. There have been alot of lies. We’ve been warning you about all the lies,” Lemon continued, adding that Trump “was a liar and is a liar” and that his “enablers” also told “lies” — and “even after the Capitol insurrection [they] tried to overturn the Electoral College vote.”

So much for unity and healing.
