Anderson Cooper Gets Fed Up With Trump Official Dodging His Questions

Sebastian Gorka to CNN's Anderson Cooper: Trump's War On Fake News Anderson Cooper Gets Fed Up With Trump Official Dodging His Questions

Echoing his boss' criticisms, Gorka called CNN "fake news" while mocking Cooper's ratings; the CNN host said he was using insults to avoid answering questions.

Gorka called the idea that there is a "bunker mentality" or "crisis" about this week's Donald Jr. news in the White House "laughable", stating: "We are pushing the Make America Great Again agenda". And if we see good faith, remember, more than 400,000 people have been killed in Syria.

While Lavrov did not specify what Russia's response would be, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov noted that if Washington continues to drag its feet on the issue, there will be a "tough response".

Gorka said "the last thing" one could say about Trump was that he was weak, and that Trump had pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin on the matter at a meeting last Friday. The Trump administration is considering returning those compounds to Russia. Why?

A bipartisan group of senators, including Sen. Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen of Maryland as well as Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY, the lawmakers wrote that "the Russian government has done nothing to deserve renewed access to these compounds". Kirsten Gilibrand (D-N.Y.) have since spoken out against the proposition.

A White House official on Thursday said the administration had to "move on" from Russia's 2016 election interference, allowing for the possibility that the United States could return two compounds on U.S. soil to the Russian government.

"We look at Russian Federation as a country that we don't have ideal relations with, we don't even have better relations with than other nations, but perhaps they could improve".

The Hill's media analyst (and Mediaite alum) Joe Concha was asked to weigh in on Gorka's recent clashes on CNN.
