The CNN news anchor said he’s “genuinely sorry” for a “crude” remark he made on his CNN show Friday night. 

While interviewing CNN contributor Jeffrey Lord — a longtime supporter of President Donald Trump — Cooper estimated that, “If [Trump] took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.” The remark came after Lord had defended Trump’s insult of former FBI Director James Comey as a “nut job.”

A whole new low of unprofessionalism by CNN…

After the show aired, Cooper took to Twitter to apologize for what he felt was an “unprofessional” statement.
