After news broke that the Russia investigation was reaching inside the White House and that Trump reportedly called former FBI director James Comey a “nut job” to the Russians, the same CNN host that brought us the Kellyanne Conway eye roll unveiled a new viral moment.

This time, while interviewing Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord, Cooper said, “If [Trump] took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.”

That insult caused somebody off-camera to laugh, and it sent Lord into hysterics. It was a hellaciously good burn, and it’s something Twitter could appreciate.

Later, Cooper apologized to Lord for being “crude,” and then Cooper took to Twitter.

Even still, Cooper has joined the annals of cable news history: He is still one of CNN’s biggest ever shit-stirrers.
