Anderson Cooper made a rather low-brow remark Friday to President Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord in the face of his unconditional defense of everything the president does. It inspired some laughter on their set, and a lot of Twitter reaction.

“I don’t care what he says to the Russian,” Lord remarked, “to the Russians, I mean, he’s the President of the United States, if he wants to say that, if Barack Obama wants to say whatever, if George Bush says ‘I looked into his eyes and saw his soul…'”

“If he took a dump on his desk you would defend it!” Cooper interrupted to laughter from Lord and others on the CNN panel.

“I mean, I don’t know what he would do that you would not defend!” Cooper said, exasperated.

The joke elicited a lot of Twitter reaction:

The interaction came on a day where multiple stories broke in the mainstream media with anonymous sourcing intended to damage the presidency.

A major story from the New York Times had the distinction of not being denied by the White House. It detailed the conversation between Russian envoys and the president on a recent meeting at the White House where Trump admitted that the firing of former FBI Director James Comey would ease the pressure of the Russian investigation.
