During a White House meeting on Thursday, President Donald Trump reacted to a potential immigration deal that would provide for and protect immigrants from Haiti and Africa by saying why should the U.S. take in more immigrants from “shithole countries” rather than nations like Norway. Unsurprisingly, this comment “triggered” CNN’s Anderson Cooper, and he went off on Trump in a massive rant on his show last night.
“The president of the United States is tired of so many black people coming into this country. Tired of immigrants from Haiti and Africa being allowed in,” Cooper said, according to Real Clear Politics. “Tired of Africans and Haitians, the president said he would like to bring more people from countries like Norway. Norway, which population is overwhelmingly of Nordic descent. White people in other words.”
“Perhaps the White House feels the president’s remarks will be well-received in some parts of this country, among some parts of the president’s base, and perhaps that is true but it doesn’t make what he said any less ignorant or any less racist. Not racial. Not racially charged, racist. Let’s not kid ourselves. Let’s not pretend or dance around it. The sentiment the president expressed today is a racist sentiment,” Cooper said.

Later in the show, Cooper nearly broke down in tears while defending the people of Haiti.
It looks like Anderson was triggered bigly!
It didn’t take long for Twitter users to fire back at Cooper by defending President Trump:
Your mouth is more filthy than the President’s. What he said was in private, you kept swearing on air over and over, like a kid trying to impress his older brother’s friends. Sad.

Rich white liberals are extremely frail. Tired of hearing this excuse. Japan and Germany were bombed into the stone age, and had their entire society collapse and came back in a few decades. Africa and Haiti cant move on from lesser events over 100 years ago.
