CNN’s Anderson Cooper this past Wednesday night poked fun President Trump‘s claim that he had received several letters of praise from news anchors after his meeting with lawmakers on immigration.
Cooper questioned which news anchors had sent the president letters of congratulations and clarified that he had not personally sent one.
Trump on Wednesday claimed that he had recieved “great reviews” for the meeting earlier this week with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on immigration.
Stating that he had received letters from news anchors claiming that it was “one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed.”
Cooper on his program late Wednesday jokingly offered up “major kudos” to the United States Postal Service for “delivering those letters so fast.”
“So fast, it’s almost like it wouldn’t even be humanly possible,” Cooper stated.
“Quick question though: Who are these anchors who wrote letters congratulating the president on one of the greatest meetings they’ve ever witnessed, which is a highly believable, totally normal thing that would absolutely happen?”
Cooper added that letter writing is one of the first things taught in “anchor school.”
While claiming that he did not send the president a letter of congratulations on his “groundbreaking” meeting.
“Everyone knows when I want to do something totally normal, I send the president one of those big cookies with ‘congratulations on the meeting’ in icing or one of those edible arrangements,” he said.
“To be fair, this list does have words on it and those words are actually made up of letters,” the CNN anchor added, “but that’s not generally accepted in reality to mean the same thing as ‘letters of congratulation that anchors sent to the president.'”
