Watching Anderson Cooper call Donald Trump a 5-year-old at CNN's Town Hall was deeply satisfying.
During Tuesday night’s CNN town hall, Anderson Cooper asked Donald Trump about his latest contentious tweets. In case you haven't heard, one of Trump's tweets featured a photo of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi Cruz. The Donald seemed to imply something about her looks when he captioned the photo: "A picture is worth a thousand words."
The CNN town hall exchange started like this:
Trump: I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi. I thought it was fine.
Cooper: Come on.
Trump: I thought it was fine! She’s a pretty woman.
Cooper: You’re running for president of the United States.
Trump: Excuse me. I didn’t start it. I didn’t start it.
Cooper: But sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a five-year-old.
Trump: No it’s not.
Cooper: The argument of a five-year-old is “he started it.”
Trump: You would say that. That’s the problem with our country.
Cooper: Every parent knows a kid who says he started it.
Trump: That’s not a five-year-old.
Trump continued to fire back very Trump-like, defending his stance in a very childish manner and responding to Cooper like they were arguing on a playground.
