CNN host Anderson Cooper threw a tantrum over Greta Thunberg’s appearance on the network’s “Coronavirus: Facts and Fears” town hall Thursday night.
“Apparently someone with a blue check on Twitter saw the initial ad, was outraged, and claimed we had booked Greta Thunberg to be an expert on a coronavirus panel with other health experts,” Cooper said. “Then, of course Donny Trump Jr. jumped into this, which is weird, because I thought he was allegedly running whatever was left of the Trump Organization. Shouldn’t that be a really busy job since it’s allegedly such a great big company?”
Cooper then commented about Donald Trump Jr. tweeting about it.
“Anyway, once DJTJ started typing, then other people with blue checks on Twitter also started doing their thing, because everyone has to produce content these days,” Cooper added. “That’s what it’s all about. It’s like a tween on Tik Tok — you’ve got to produce content.”
He then called out Forbes and the New York Post, saying they claimed CNN was having Thunberg on a panel of experts. His response: “It was made up then. It was made up today in the Post.”
Before finishing the segment, he took a one last jab at Trump Jr.
“Look, I get Donny Trump Jr attacking CNN and a 17-year-old Swede. That’s like low hanging fruit,” Cooper said.
“That’s like paying thousands of dollars to shoot exotic animals on a game farm. It’s easy. And I know Donny Trump Jr. just wants his dad to love him or notice him in a way that’s not mocking him, but I just find it fascinating to watch the phony online outrage machine.”
