Anderson Cooper may have just cost himself some nightly viewers.
Cooper made the mistake of not only sticking up for Senator Sinema (D-AZ), but he also called out those trying to downplay the attacks against her recently.
This surely will not go over with the far left that has welcomed and applauded the “protesters” that followed her into the bathroom and continued to record.
Just Not Right
I am all for challenging our politicians, but there have to be some boundaries here… like not following them into the bathroom.
Since this incident occurred, I have stated several times that had this been AOC, there would have been national outrage.
Cooper took much the same stance, questioning the reaction if this had been Trump supporters going after a high-profile Democrat such as Nancy Pelosi.
Cooper’s guest at the time, pollical commentator Ana Navarro, continued to try to justify these people stalking Sinema into the bathroom.
She simply did not get the point that people should not be followed where privacy is clearly called for, let alone allowing the camera to continue to roll.
Finally, Cooper had enough, responding, “Ana, would you feel the same way if these were, pro — supporters of the — who felt very passionately that the election had been stolen against the former president and were following some Democrat into a bathroom while they were going to the bathroom, following Speaker Pelosi into a women’s room?
“I mean, would that — is it fair for anybody just because they’re passionate about something to be able to do this?”
She still didn’t get it. Conceding that the behavior was “inappropriate,” she added, “But when you put it in context with what we have seen, there [were] no threats.
“There [were] no offenses. There was no screaming. Anderson, I’ve had worse said to me.”
So, I guess there you have it… if you see Ana Navarro and want to disagree with something she had to say, follow her into the bathroom and keep the camera rolling.
Let’s see if she has the same response.
Ana, it is not about what they were saying; it’s about human decency and privacy, something liberals clearly do not respect.
