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.
