Anderson Cooper shuts down Kayleigh McEnany’s whining about Jay-Z: ‘Ted Nugent grabbed his package’
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was joined by panelists on Monday night at a Clinton campaign event in Philadelphia as the country prepares for Tuesday’s election.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who has been joined in recent days by celebrities like Jay-Z, Jennifer Lopez, and Bruce Springsteen, held a concert to kick off the final hours leading into Election Day.
Meanwhile, Republican commentator Jeff Lord and Trump surrogate Kayleigh McEnany joined Cooper to talk about Jay-Z’s language and Trump’s p*ssy grabbing.
Lord started the conversation by suggesting that Clinton’s crowd came out for the musical guests, rather than the candidate, whereas the people at Trump’s rally showed up solely for their preferred nominee.
The conversation quickly escalated to a discussion about Jay-Z’s lyrics and his mentions of “the p-word.”
“One of the things that got [Michelle Obama] interested in this all of a sudden was that Access Hollywood tape, in which the ‘p’ word was mentioned. And yet there is Hillary Clinton with Jay-Z who has a song, specifically titled with the ‘p’ word” Lord pointed out.
As the discussion escalated, McEnany commented, “The difference is for Jay-Z to shout these expletives on a stage at a political rally while the Democrats are trying to stand on a moral high ground saying we’re better than that and Hillary Clinton is putting out commercials with little girls looking in the mirror.”
There is, however, a difference between grabbing women without consent — which is what Trump was bragging about — and using the word p*ssy.
Cooper called her out, though. “Ted Nugent grabbed his package at his concert, didn’t he?”
He did “grab his package” — while performing at a Trump rally.
