Anderson Cooper Tells Trump He’s Acting Like “a 5-Year-Old”
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper sparred with Donald Trump at a Tuesday town hall over an unflattering image he retweeted of Heidi Cruz last week.
Cooper told Trump he had the argument of a 5-year-old when the Republican presidential candidate tried to defend his reposting the image that compared Ted Cruz’s wife to Melania Trump.

When asked about the tweet, Trump was comically disingenuous:
“I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi. I thought it was fine,” Trump said.
“C’mon,” Cooper responded.
“I thought it was fine. She’s a pretty woman,” Trump fired back.
“You’re running for president of the United States,” Cooper said.
“I didn’t start it. I didn’t start it,” Trump responded.
“Sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a 5-year-old,” Cooper said.
“You would say that. But he started it! The problem with our country — that thinking, that’s the problem with the country. He sent out a picture” — Cruz did not, as Cooper noted, it was an anti-Trump group — “it was Romney people, they were very embarrassed he did so poorly four years ago, he choked like a dog.”
Anderson Cooper is correct.
