Here's the @costareports WasPost piece in which Trump attacks @andersoncooper, reasserts his birtherism: https://t.co/w5eSHnafMq— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) September 16, 2016
In a rather cunning move to set Anderson Cooper up to feel he must be nice to Trump to avoid being called biased, Trump has pre-emptively accused the CNN anchor of being beholden to Hillary Clinton—and says Cooper should not moderate a debate.
The remark came out of nowhere, but was no accident.
Hillary Clinton blasts Trump for not saying Pres. Obama was born in the U.S.: "When will he stop this ugliness" https://t.co/f1uPDkcDoW— Anderson Cooper 360° (@AC360) September 16, 2016
Gotta hand it to him—that was fucking smart.
Oh, and for good measure, he re-asserted that he isn't sure Obama was born in the U.S.A., so he hates black people, foreigners and also gay people (Cooper will be the first out gay man to moderate a presidential debate).
