Anderson Cooper to Trump supporter: ‘I’ve spent more time overseas than you have in your little life!’

In an exchange with a Donald Trump supporter that immediately went over the rails Thursday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper snapped at former president of Trump Productions Andy Dean when he tried to defend Trump’s answer to a bigoted supporter in Rochester, New Hampshire this week.

In an exchange with a Donald Trump supporter that immediately went over the rails Thursday night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper snapped at former president of Trump Productions Andy Dean when he tried to defend Trump’s answer to a bigoted supporter in Rochester, New Hampshire this week.

Cooper asked Dean about Trump saying “we’re going to be looking at that” after the man said Muslims are “a problem in this country” and “we all know our current President is one.” Trump outright failed to correct the man or condemn his comments.

Dean claimed that it’s “not accurate at all” to say that Trump said “we’re going to be looking at Muslims,” instead saying that the current GOP frontrunner was referring to training camps for Muslim terrorists.

“You may laugh it off,” Dean said, before Cooper interrupted. “But there are potential reports of Muslim radicals…”

“Andy, I’ve spent more time overseas than you ever have in your little life, so don’t tell me about I’m laughing this stuff off,” Cooper said.

The conversation deteriorated from there.

Later on Twitter, Cooper apologized for losing his cool.

    Anderson, it’s past time for lending credence to Trump’s candidacy by concerning yourself with politeness. Trump gets to frame his message as he pleases, and no one seems to want to challenge his idiocy. The gloves need to come off. Thank you for responding with the contempt it deserves.

    In keeping with the tradition of the first debate, wouldn’t it be wise to pose the first question to all of the candidates: “Who among you believe the President was not born in the U.S.?” I think this is a litmus question that should, depending on their answer, disqualify any of these Bozos from the very start.

    Trump took the low road by pandering to an obvious ethnocentric moron by not refuting the statement made by the moron. Not a surprise really…..allowing a question like that without a proper retort shows tolerance for that attitude. Ridiculous from a presidential candidate. Trump could learn something from John McCain.

    I completely agree with Michael. This buffoon needs to be called on the carpet for his idiotic and uninformed remarks. Trump is pure and simple a bully and with all of the attention on bullying these days-more people need to call him out!
