'Doesn't he have, like, a briefing book on ISIS to be reading?': Anderson Cooper hits back at Donald Trump's tweet storm bashing CNN

Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night hit back at Donald Trump for his anti-CNN tweets that were made while AC360 aired.

The cable news host risked opening a feud with the president-elect by making a snide remark about Trump's alleged failure to receive intelligence briefings.

Cooper said he was surprised the president-elect had taken time to watch the show while preparing to lead the country.

'When I first heard that he was tweeting about something that was on this broadcast ... I kept thinking, "Doesn't he have, like, a briefing book on ISIS to be reading last night?"' Cooper said.

Cooper also mentioned that Trump's tweets 'were factually incorrect'.

If you have a point to make, make it.....

However, considering the number of States that give driver's licenses to illegal aliens like they are 'entitled' to have them, and the number of States that allow a driver's license to be the ONLY identification they need in order to vote, and the number of States that allow someone to 'sign a piece of paper' stating they are allowed to vote with NO identification whatsoever, gives credence to voter fraud, JP.....and widespread fraud, no matter WHAT some liberal 'journalist' wants to claim because it's common knowledge that illegals LOVE liberals and WOULD vote for them and DO.

Real investigative journalism has been dead in this country for at least forty years now...the last time it WAS real was during the Nixon administration. Now they're out in the open and publicly 'taking a stand' against Conservative Republicans every chance they get across the country, and they don't care anymore to be honest and give accurate and truthful reporting.

I have nothing less important to do.

TheRUMP goes on Twitter when HE has nothing less important to do...

Being POTUS is less important than Twitter.

Are you still confused?

upset that Trump uses Twitter, JP.....especially liberal MEDIA because it means he is going DIRECTLY OVER THEIR HEADS and getting to the people since the media will never give a Republican any truthful reporting of anything anyhow. The PEOPLE know that and that's why they follow him and voted for him. IF the media has a problem with that, they need to learn a hard lesson with THIS president because he isn't going to play in their stupidass sandbox anymore. He's called them out and NONE have been able to DENY his charges.

Trump Drops False ‘Birther’ Theory, but Floats a New One: Clinton Started It

Donald J. Trump publicly retreated from his “birther” campaign on Friday, tersely acknowledging that President Obama was born in the United States — and effectively conceding that the conspiracy theory he had promoted for years was baseless.

Mr. Trump made no apology for and took no questions about what had amounted to a five-year-long smear of the nation’s first black president. Instead, he claimed, falsely, that questions about Mr. Obama’s citizenship were initially stirred by the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, in her unsuccessful primary contest against Mr. Obama in 2008.

NEVER?

Please explain how CNN can broadcast (uninterrupted) TheRUMP in front of a microphone speaking to an audience and not be "truthfully reporting".

Explain how broadcasting his words live is not truthful?

and they do....anyone that listens/watches AFTER that...should know that they are asking/bringing up points that some of the audience would be asking themselves of TheRUMP IF they could.

FOX News always made the claim it was the number 1 source for news...and it backed TheRUMP...what more does he want?

you don't think there should be an opposing point of view?

Yes, there should be an opposing view....however, NONE of the Lame Street Media EVER gave an opposing view of hilLIARy Clinton's statement....they didn't even give her an HONEST interview.

Dec 2, 2016 8:20AM PST

regarding the ONE tweet that Cooper was referring to regarding the illegals who voted......where I ALSO gave you information regarding how some States actually make it easy for illegals to do just that.

You STILL can't make your point effectively without diverting away from what YOU yourself posted. And Cooper can't prove Trump is 'factually incorrect'....So it's nothing more than Cooper's OPINION that he is too lazy to research and disprove Trump or prove that Cooper is right. There is NO accountability when it comes to smears from the left, even from their own.

Nope...not playing that game
Dec 2, 2016 10:32AM PST

YOU posted something that Cooper alleged as 'factually incorrect' with absolutely NOTHING that backs up THAT statement; I've already proved and provided information that points at the fact that illegals EASILY COULD vote. YOU don't get to decide now that Cooper is the ONLY valid truthteller, JP, just because it goes along with YOUR narrative.....prove Trump is wrong so you can have a credible argument. Perhaps the recounts going on will show Trump IS right, but only IF those looking for real data on those ballots on WHO voted (not who they voted FOR) provide truthful information.

Cooper, who is supposedly a journalist,
Dec 2, 2016 12:55PM PST

referred to ONE tweet regarding illegals voting, JP...YOUR asinine example ISN'T proof. As journalist he should be REQUIRED to investigate before making allegations that Trump is 'factually incorrect'....and he DIDN'T even make an effort or he would have KNOWN the same information I gave YOU that proves that it's not only possible but probable that Trump IS correct.

Do your own research if you don't believe ME and look up the number of States that allow for that loophole that illegals can walk right through.

I'm done because I don't believe you will do that anymore than Cooper did. You have NOTHING to debate with any longer.

Dec 2, 2016 5:29AM PST

I don't see it as 'complaining'....I see it as he is publicly pointing out the truth to the American people about the leftist media and their open bias. He opened up a tremendous number of eyes.......and it paid off in the voting booth. People stopped believing in the media and instead started believing again in their own gut instincts.

IF your standards are "gut instincts" why listen to anyone?

The media?... FOX but not CNN? CNN but not FOX?

ONLY hear what a person says...then make your own decisions?

Don't listen to anyone that has the opportunity to ask the questions that you would ask?

Don't listen to how the person answers the questions you would like to ask?

WHEN did you believe the media? How long ago? What was the tipping point?

I have to ask you to give me actual examples of ANYBODY in the LMS asking Clinton REAL questions that weren't soft or didn't change the subject instead of asking follow-up questions when it was obvious she was lying?

When did YOU stop
Dec 2, 2016 7:13AM PST

listening to any news media that didn't conform with YOUR own personal opinions, JP? Did you EVER question why those 'journalists' were so one-sided or were you happy to have them supporting publicly your own choices? Do YOU really believe there are two points of view or is YOURS and other liberals the ONLY point of view you want to know about and hear?

I have YET to see any posts from you that actually criticized ANYTHING about hilLIARy, including her lies and corruption and blatant use of an illegal private server that was used to hide her emails from FOIA requests and her illegal wiping of those harddrives AFTER receiving a Congressional subpoena for them. And I don't know of ANY liberal media who ever questioned her honestly about any of it.....other than letting off the hook with "it was a mistake" when it was NEVER a mistake, it was done DELIBERATELY, even going against the agreement she had with BO being in place BEFORE setting it all up.
