Anderson Cooper’s line of questioning toward Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) had Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola incensed while watching Wednesday’s GOP town hall event.
“‘You’re obviously very accomplished. Did you always know that you wanted to be a public servant?'” Uygur said, mockingly repeating a question Cooper posed to the senator. “What the f*ck kind of question is that?”
“If Marco Rubio had written Anderson Cooper’s lines he wouldn’t have been this fawning,” Iadarola responded.
“It actually almost literally can’t function much of the time with eight,” Iadarola said. “He would think no one would buy it.”
“This is f*cking miserable,” Uygur lamented. “At least this became interesting.”
Uygur then accused Cooper of “ripping their heads off” when he was interviewing Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Hillary Clinton while taking it easy on Rubio.
“He’s a f*cking politician,” Uygur said. “Don’t give me this bullsh*t about a ‘public servant’ after you heard all night about his stupid talking points.”
The duo was similarly angered when Cooper refused to push back when Rubio repeated the debunked conservative talking point that a Supreme Court justice had not been appointed during an election year, calling it precedent.
“What the f*ck did they pay him to do this?” Iadarola asked angrily. “Just put a go*damn stuffed animal up there and stuff some index cards against it.”
“The disparity is hideous,” Uygur replied.

"Come again? What's that now?" Cupp asked in disbelief.
"I think there are some women who beg to differ," she noted.
WATCH: Protesters shut down 5th Ave near Trump Tower to protest Microsoft working with ICE
Protesters in New York City shut down 5th Avenue on Saturday to protest Microsoft working with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The tech giant contracts with ICE to provide the technology used to enact President Donald Trump's immigration policies.
The thoroughfare was blocked only blocks from Trump Tower.
"Close the Camps NYC coalition led hundreds of protestors to peacefully march on the premiere retail location of Microsoft on 5th Avenue in Manhattan, staging a sit-in to demand that the tech giant stop allowing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to use its technology in the racist campaign against immigrants and legal asylum seekers," the group said.
Here is Joy Reid mocking Trump’s ‘smoking hot beauty tips’ that likely pushed him over the edge into rage-tweeting
Since Donald Trump launched his attack on MSNBC's Joy Reid long before her "AM Joy" show was broadcast, internet sleuths wondered what set him off and led him to pretend he didn't know who she as he smeared her reputation.
On Saturday morning, Trump wrote, “Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the 'it' factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News!”
