The American public is still trying to process Donald Trump’s disastrous press conference on Tuesday, in which he defended those who marched in a white supremacist rally.
Later that day, Anderson Cooper broke down exactly what was so disturbing about the president’s comments in a segment that lasted more than 11 minutes.
“In the remarks he made today, the president revealed what he truly thinks about race in America,” Cooper said, before showing clips of Trump trying to downplay a gathering of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and alt-right members that resulted in a protester getting killed by a car.
If you’re confused about exactly what went down today and over the weekend, this is a smart, succinct summary and takedown.
Anderson Cooper just did one of the greatest TV openings ever. Said the prez left clear in which side he is & his support to racist protests
