Anderson Cooper reacts to Trump’s sexist tweet to Mika Brzezinski: ”This is NOT Normal”
Anderson Cooper is calling out Donald Trump on the insults he hurled this week at MSNBC hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
He called Scarborough ‘crazy’ and Brzezinski ‘dumb as a rock.” Trump also alleged on Twitter that the Morning Joe hosts had appeared at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida last New Year’s Eve asking to get into a party and that Brzezinski was ‘bleeding from a facelift.’
Brzezinski and Scarborough have flatly denied Trump’s account.
Here’s what Anderson Cooper had to say about it on his show last night: “It’s not normal. This is the most powerful man on the face of the entire planet. A man struggling to fulfill promises he’s made on health care reform and a whole host of other issues lashing out personally at a cable news anchor, making snide comments and allegations about her appearance.”
Cooper said that adults apologize for “stupid things,” but Trump instead sends his spokespeople out to “do just the opposite.”
He was referring to Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ defense of Trump’s attacks, in which she said the president is “tough” and “fights fire with fire.”
“Donald Trump is many things, but tough is not one of them,” Cooper said.
“Tough is fighting for the health care reforms that he actually campaigned on. Tough is rising above insults and actually leading, What our president does is not a display of toughness. It’s a display of weakness of character, of thinness of skin.”
