CNN anchor Anderson Cooper took a shot at the cable news channel’s Trump cheerleader, Jeffrey Lord, on Friday night, saying he would defend President Trump even if he “took a dump on his desk.”

Lord was defending Trump’s right to call former FBI Director James Comey a “nut job” in a White House meeting with Russian officials last week.
“If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it,” Cooper interrupted. “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,” Cooper added.
Last month, Lord controversially referred to Trump as “the Martin Luther King of healthcare.”
