WATCH: Anderson Cooper Finally Apologizes For Terrible Treatment Of President Trump

CNN host Anderson Cooper apologized for a “crude” remark directed at President Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord during his show on Friday, calling his comment “unprofessional.”

During a segment on AC360, Cooper verbally sparred with Lord, a CNN political commentator, over revelations that Trump reportedly told Russian officials that former FBI Director James Comey is a “nut job” who was adding pressure to the ongoing investigation of possible interference in the 2016 election. Clearly frustrated with Lord’s response to the matter, Cooper interrupted the conservative pundit and interjected with a not-so-subtle jab.

“If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it,” Cooper told Lord. “I don’t know what he would do that you would not defend.”

“You’re a loyal guy, I think that speaks well of you,” he added as Lord, who initially laughed at Cooper’s remark, looked on:

Cooper later provided an apology both on-air and on Twitter:

“I regret the crude sentence I spoke earlier tonight and followed it up by apologizing on air,” the CNN host tweeted. “It was unprofessional. I am genuinely sorry.”

      I’ll agree, just don’t believe anything pertaining to apology anyway. Just not the type to be sincere, but thanks 4 trying.

    Some of the commentators on different media especially the drive-by media has begun to lose their cool because they can’t convince everyone that President Trump is a mistake….. it is they that are mistaken they are complete mistake I have stopped watching any of the fake news channels

      me too. The liberal news media has lost control because they no longer influence anyone. Just like any other control freak they are having a total meltdown.

    Whether or not we voted for him – he is our president. The way these news reporters act and twist the truth is unprofessional, immature and a total turnoff. They are losing credibility daily.

    He doesn’t regret it. He got called out on it and had to apologize to save face as they say

      Exactly. Real class act Cooper – NOT!

      You are right that is what happened, they cannot keep saying they are sorry to save their jobs.

    • Bonny Sheesley

      May 21, 2017 at 11:33 pm

      Anderson Cooper is a foul mouthed person. He isn’t sorry. What you say is like toothpaste…after it comes out, you can’t put it back in. Shame on him.

    • D hayes

      You blew it cooper!!! Who said you were professional anyway!!! Another over rated journalist who got a job because of his wealth!!

      Person like cooper us blind fanatic to the evil plans to put down the present administration. Yes he is often times unprofessional remember what he did to Conway how he rolled his eyes on air.

    • Mary

      May 22, 2017 at 2:29 pm

      You are exactly right. That’s the only reason he did it

    Get him off the air! He can’t be fair and balanced. He is bias and just hurting CNN. Don’t watch anymore!

    Can’t ‘unsay’ what has

    been said. Apology is useless.

    • Sillygirl

      May 21, 2017 at 2:41 pm

      Same result as trying to unring a bell….he had to apologize to save face but too late for that. He is a sad, sad man, amongst many news people!!

  11. Petra Carstens

    May 21, 2017 at 2:26 pm

    The problem is : HE SAID IT!!!!

  12. Mary

    May 21, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    You are a POS that they need to flush away to the ocean! We don’t need your nasty mouth telling BS about our President who has more class in one strand of hair than you will never have for the rest of your life! EAT SH%T % DIE!!!

    • Cindy

      May 21, 2017 at 9:40 pm

      Just what would it take for Cooper to say anything positive about our President? It works both ways! Trump could lay gold pieces on a table and Cooper would find something wrong with that!

  13. Linda nimmerguth

    May 21, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    You can’t say something about someone like that and say oops I’m sorry. What comes out of your mouth is meant to be heard by someone. I think Anderson Cooper can’t control his personal opinions of this President and should be taken off the air! We don’t need this garbage in America .

  14. Ellen

    May 21, 2017 at 2:57 pm

    You Anderson cooper are so innately full of “Hate” towards the President of the United States that a meaningless apology is just words. Sad but true…

  15. Anne

    May 21, 2017 at 2:58 pm

    You’ve only showed everyone the real Anderson Cooper. A mean, nasty,disrespectful,partisan tv personality. What would Hillary have to do to have you disagree with her??

  16. Betty LeBlanc

    You said it and do not regret it. The evil thoughts are there.

    A day late & a Dollar Short Cooper. We got your number!!!!!!!

  20. Carolann

    May 21, 2017 at 4:29 pm

    He will make many more comments in the future for which he should apologize, but won’t. He just got caught exposing his internal crudeness that he can’t deny.

    A elite pig that spreads lies to suit his agenda on the CNN “CRIMINAL NEWS NETWORK”

  22. Marjorie Campbell

    May 21, 2017 at 4:44 pm

    Unprofessional remarks seems to be the calling for so called “reporters”. Just like all their Hillary’s ahead reporting during the election, their ability to report accurate news is not possible for them when it comes to the President. Makes me wonder what all they do misreport in news

  23. Rebeca

    May 21, 2017 at 4:55 pm

    Cooper is totally useless as a real news pundit…clinton lap dog not an original thought.. his mom should be so sad he has no thought of truth

  24. Les Harper

    May 21, 2017 at 4:57 pm

    Why does anybody want to talk to Cooper he is just another Rosie but in the wrong body

  25. Evangeline Fasig

    May 21, 2017 at 5:12 pm

    It’s always easy to say something and think you can get away with it by offering an apology. Not buying it.

  26. ANNA KNOX

    May 21, 2017 at 5:12 pm

    Anderson Cooper is full of himself as is Chris Como.. they are so leftist that they fail to see what the American people want and feel.. No more Obama, no more Clintons.. enough is enough . we want Ameria back. we want news anchors who stay neutral who keep they personal opinions to themselves.. just the facts is what we want. no assumptions, no innuendos or making fun of Trump or members of his family. Enough of the trashiness. You were raised better than that Anderson
    GIVE TRUMP A CHANCE FOR GOD SAKE!!!!

  27. Mary Diek

    May 21, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    Hahaha. It’s all said in above remarks. No need to add more. Most people see between the lines and see the intense jealousy in the Democratic party.

  28. Agatha

    May 21, 2017 at 6:04 pm

    If you go on his Facebook page, you’ll see MANY of his viewers PRAISING his choice of words!! I put my opinion as well….but it wasn’t praising him!! He knew what he said would create controversy…..ANYTHING for ratings! CNN has become a terrible source for news and I only liked Anderson Cooper/Pooper but NO LONGER WILL I WATCH HIM!!

  29. Ann Huffman

    All these sophisticated Democrats want you to think they are so classy then all that filth comes out of their mouth’s.

  30. Patsy Templeton

    May 21, 2017 at 6:42 pm

    I do not think he was sincere too. He could apologize for all of his statements prior to this.

  31. Donna Isaacs

    Cooper needs to retake kindergarten or preschool, whichever or both that he flunked. Potty mouth is as potty mouth does.

  32. Cathy

    May 21, 2017 at 7:00 pm

    Anderson you and all your liberal media have an agenda. It is to make Trump look as bad as possible. You don’t get it. The more you spread vicious innuendo and lies it makes all of us love him even more. Go ahead make my/our day!!

  33. Victoria

    May 21, 2017 at 7:02 pm

    Crude people make crude remarks. He couldn’t stop himself. If there weren’t video on it, he’d deny saying it.

  34. Pat

    May 21, 2017 at 7:09 pm

    If Hillary and the DNC dumped on his face he would them. So I guess were even.

  35. Oty

    May 21, 2017 at 7:24 pm

    Too late Madame! We all know you meant what you said. The apology comes at the will of someone else. I bet you will continue to disrespect our President as usual.

    • Paula

      May 21, 2017 at 8:41 pm

      He does not regret it. This is what they do at CNN. and are good at it as well. Their mantra is: lie, accuse without any proof, anything you can fake, DO IT!!!
      CNN is at war with the president and with the American people. They are bound and determent to destroy America, so the liberal globelists can take back America to the corruption it use to be, also the abuse of power and disregard for justice in America. Where criminals like Hillary walk free, because Comey, and Loretta Lunch have their back.

  36. Crystal Edington

    May 21, 2017 at 7:44 pm

    Cooper is a liberal and says what he means. His apology is based on his use of potty mouth on the air not his comment about our President. All CNN reporters speak exactly what the network wants. They medias hate for Trump stems from their inability to manipulate him and his straight in your face speaking. Our President has stirred up a hill of lazy people who have been near asleep living with status quo government representation since President Truman. President Trump has sounded the wake up call that America is on the brink of becoming a third world country. No one wants to believe it, because status quo is easy and cleaning up Washington is hard work. Going overseas and apologizing to foreign governments is easy. Change is imminent and Cooper and others like him will soon be thankful for it.

  37. Oblivious to lies

    May 21, 2017 at 8:07 pm

    The media is making Trump the underdog, but forgetting how much far American’s will go to defend the underdog. Stupid, stupid fake news.

  38. N

    May 21, 2017 at 8:11 pm

    He should not have apologized. Anderson Cooper was mirroring the utter extreme that was being spewed out by Lord. That’s the point!!! Why does he get a free pass to insult the intelligence and ethics of most people?

  39. Sharon

    May 21, 2017 at 8:12 pm

    Too little, too late. You so-called reporters have destroyed any faith the American public had in journalism. You have proven that our President is 100% correct.

  40. J. Thomas

    May 21, 2017 at 8:58 pm

    This is as dumb as it gets. If anyone thinks this so-called apology is real they really need to pull their head (s) out of their liberal, racists, socialist butt. This is not “new” this so-called professional “news” person (I’m not sure that he’s even human because he’s been around for awhile and his head (s) have been up his or his masters ass’s, for a long time now, come up for air already) and he’s ALWAYS been the liberal mouth piece he showed in this clip. I’ve always thought that all news reporters where just that “news reporters”. Not anymore as most of them have crawled out of the REAL slime they’ve always lived in and shown their TRUE colors since President Trump was elected. They push the liberal agenda now more than ever because this last election proved once and for all that the U.S is truly conservative by nature and there are more conservatives in this country than the liberal low life’s preached. This last election also was the first real statement that we’re (conservatives) here and we are sick and tired of the social B.S being spread by the few loud and paid for mouth pieces in the entertainment, media and educational systems. They’re all corrupt, wrong and few in numbers. This last election showed that conservatives are here and tired of being out shouted by those who’s agenda is small minded and sadly what’s wrong with our world. We’ve shown our relevancy and are ready to continue our stand against those who wish only to corrupt our children and rule over us. So to those loud mouth pieces on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and the cowards of other networks to numerous to mention “you’re time of honoring yourselves will soon be at an end” as you are ALL no longer relevant (not that you ever were. And yes I did barrow that line but it is so true to this and many other future conversations.

    Anderson, you’re on the edge of losing it! We are supporting President Trump, no matter how much propaganda CNN tries to spread. He’s the United States President, he deserves more respect.
    PS: I’m sure your a snowflake anyway!

    Anderson, shame on you. Your network claims to bias and truthful. The only thing missing is Whoopie. By the way why haven’t all those that said they were leaving the country left? CNN should rent a bus and take you all to Mexico

    May 21, 2017 at 9:37 pm

    Regardless you said it. It really can’t be taken back but you can keep apologizing over it. At this point who really cares what you think or said.

    May 21, 2017 at 11:04 pm

    The sad part of all of this is the President is hated because he worked harder traveled to places Hillary wouldn’t go you know where we deplorables live..In the rural counties of our country of farmers,steel workers,coal miners, mechanics etc..She is to good to dirty her hands on us poor people.Guess someone forgot to tell her we count too.
    Donald Trump is a Billionaire yet he’s one of us..All this talk of impeachment better be just talk…He’s promised to help us so we need to stand up for him..I’m sick of the liberals anyway so it won’t take much…..

    Anderson Cooper is not sorry. Not in a truthful way. If anything he was sorry for getting caught on live tv. Anderson Cooper is making too many unprofessional errors. Rolling his eyes, the dump comment as starters. No, he’s so mad that Donald Trump won and now is President that Anderson Cooper can’t see or think straight. He needs to take time out or resign.
    I for one don’t even watch CNN, though it is hilarious reading all this online.

  51. Roger Keith

    May 22, 2017 at 3:32 am

    He can prove he regrets his comments and bias reporting by covering Trumps Trip honestly and giving the man the credit he is due.

    Sadly, I fear that will never happen because a gay man finds it difficult to give a conservative leader respect. They yell tolerance but are among the most intolerant… He claims to be professional but I have had enough of his eye-rolls and fake news. It was stated that the coverage CNN gives our ELECTED PRESIDENT is worse than that of Arab countries and is DANGEROUS to the safety of our citizens and President. Boycott CNN

  52. Karen

    May 22, 2017 at 3:35 am

    I hate it when people apologize only after they get caught making rude comments or doing injustice to other folks!! You know they are not sorry!! No need to apologize!!!

    May 22, 2017 at 4:17 am

    The liberals are coming apart at the seams, have you watched Palosi lately?!…These mental patients need to except that President Trump is here to stay. It’s so hard to believe that morons like Anderson Cooper are main news sources…what punk.

    I have never seen such hate in the mainstream media as they have for President Donald Trump. This lack of respect would never have been excepted in Obamas time as president.
    Anderson Cooper has lost all respect for anyone that doesn’t agree with his views. He needs to step back from the public and rethink his agenda. His hate for the Republican Party is unacceptable and needs to except the views that her other than his own. Time to grow up Anderson Cooper you don’t always get your way.

  57. Anell Lipani

    May 22, 2017 at 2:20 pm

    Too little too late..your mask was off a long time ago..you are not a “journalist” your a liberal hack intent on taking down a duly elected AMERICAN President…

    About time Anderson. Though you are a liberal, I have always placed you a class above the rest. The is was way beneath you.

  59. Jim

    May 23, 2017 at 1:50 am

    Cooper, being what you are, you should not being calling our President names or disrespecting the office. You really should remember what would happen to you in other countries because you prefer men over women. You really are a piece of shit.

  60. Rose

    May 23, 2017 at 3:20 am

    HOW ABOUT ‘TOO LITTLE …TOO LATE’ THERE IS NOTHING YOU COULD EVER SAY TO VALIDATE YOUR POSITION AS REPORTER …NARCISSISTIC MORON

    I have to give credit to Anderson Cooper for his apology. He didn’t have to make it, but he did, so kudos to him for that.

  62. Diane Ferry

    May 23, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    Don’t watch him anymore…….he happened to show up on 60minutes Sunday night and I immediately switced channels!! There was a time he was fun to watch!!!!

    “It was unprofessional.”…..ya think? more than unprofessional, it was disgusting, disrespectful, irreverent, and pompous (and many more words that I won’t waste my time listing). You, anderson cooper, are a disgrace to the world of journalism.

I am a Trump Fan And Proud of it and No One I Mean No One will ever change my mind. You CNN PEOPLE ARE SUCH CONYVING LIARS I ABSOLUTELY HATE YOUR CHANNEL. You all make me sick.
