Bradley Cooper responds to his conservative haters: ‘I think Obama was an incredible president’

Apparently forgetting that movie actors are not the people they portray on screen, Trump fans on Twitter last month lamented the fact that American Sniper’s Bradley Cooper attended the Democratic Convention – and is, apparently a *gasp* Democrat.

Appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Cooper explained that since he still lives part-time in his childhood home in Philadelphia, so he decided to take his mom to hear President Obama speak on the third night of the DNC.

“It was unbelievable,” Cooper said of Obama’s speech.

When asked about the barrage of vitriol from social media conservatives when he was spotted at the convention, Cooper said that it caught him off guard.

I was there watching the president speak,” Cooper said, seemingly at a loss for words.

 Todd Phillips, who directed Cooper in The Hangover films, chimed in and pointed out that the anger was because Cooper played conservative hero Chris Kyle, who was the deadliest sniper in U.S. history, “which is like the mob being mad at De Niro for being in The Intern.”

To be there, it was probably one of the last times we’ll hear [Obama] speak,” Cooper said. “I think he was an incredible president. I was really excited.”

In contrast to his being drafted as a conservative hero after American Sniper, Cooper has been a longtime supporter of President Obama and the Democrats. Most notably according to the Daily Beast, Cooper played a key role in arranging Obama’s 2014 appearance on Zach Galifianakis’s Between Two Ferns.
