Anderson Cooper is showing (and telling) us how he really feels about Trump's supporters. Following that epic eye roll he gave Kellyanne Conway when she last appeared on his show, Cooper found himself dishing a little too much truth when he suggested CNN commentator and Trump supporter, Jefferey Lord, would defend the president "if he took a dump on his desk." Watch the jaw-dropping moment unfold below.

Immediately after, Cooper issued an apology to Lord, saying he regretted "the crude sentence." Read his tweeted apology and social media's reaction to his remark ahead.
I regret the crude sentence i spoke earlier tonight and followed it up by apologizing on air. It was unprofessional. I am genuinely sorry.

Not necessary. No need to apologize for scolding Jeffrey Lord. If you want to apologize, apologize for enabling him by having him on so much https://t.co/vrrWlIFPHr
