Immediately after Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin ended their joint press conference in Helsinki following their private summit, CNN’s Anderson Cooper laid into the president.
“You’ve been watching perhaps the most disgraceful performances by an American president in front of a Russian leader that I’ve ever seen,” the host said.
During the press conference, Trump did not hold his Russian counterpart accountable for the country’s electoral interference in the American presidential election in 2016 — a move that earned him derision from Cooper, his co-panelists and many on Twitter.

Trump’s ‘clown car’ economic team is totally unprepared to handle a financial crash: CNN’s Catherine Rampell
Washington Post economics columnist Catherine Rampell on Friday warned that President Donald Trump's team of economic advisers is woefully unprepared to handle a recession should one strike within the next year.
During a panel discussion of this week's economic news, which included a massive drop in the stock market after the U.S. Treasury yield curve inverted, Rampell explained why Americans should be deeply worried about the prospects of a recession under this president.
"They don't have a plan for what to do if things go wrong, and they could go wrong," she said. "We have this clown car of economic advisers... you have a guy who plays an economist on TV, you have a former Hollywood producer. This is not the dream team who will be handling a crisis if we face one."
CNN’s Anderson Cooper explains why Trump’s Israel gambit was a ‘potentially unconstitutional’ attack on Congress
CNN’s Anderson Cooper argued Thursday night on his show that President Donald Trump’s latest broadside against Democratic Reps. Rashida Tlaib of Minnesota and Ilhan Omar of Michigan was “potentially unconstitutional.”
Trump, who has routinely targeted the Muslim congresswomen and hypocritically accused them of anti-Semitism, urged Israel on Thursday to bar them from entering the country. Reports suggested that Trump has been pressuring Benjamin Netanyahu’s government to take this step, and the Israeli government wasn’t inclined not to. But after Trump tweeted his opinion, Israel made the ban official.
