On Friday, CNN host Anderson Cooper and legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin hilariously mocked Michael Flynn as an “idiot.”
Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, contacted Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) while he was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“While he was cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn contacted at least one member of Congress who was publicly criticizing the special counsel probe,” a report from CNN said.
“Does this make Michael Flynn appear to be an idiot?” Cooper asked.
“Yes. I think idiot is the operative word here because he was cooperating with Mueller,” Toobin said. “He’s obliged to tell the truth. Now, it is not illegal for him to reach out to a congressman who was critical of Mueller. But it’s very strange.”
He added, “That’s why the best advice lawyers often give their clients is just shut the hell up and don’t create more problems for yourself than you already have.”
“If you actually do regret what you did, it’s odd you would reach out to Congressman Gaetz of all people,” Cooper said.

‘Was Goebbels Unavailable?’:ABC blasted for ‘normalizing Fascism’ by putting Sean Spicer on ‘Dancing With the Stars’
“Remember when Spicer talked about ‘Holocaust centers’ and defended Hitler, saying he didn’t use chemical weapons?”
Disney and ABC Television must have known that putting former Trump press secretary Sean Spicer on “Dancing With the Stars” would draw condemnation, but the outrage over the just-announced news is palpable.
Spicer will go down in history for the massive lies he told, starting with his vicious and attacking falsehoods about the size of the crowd at President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The lies seemed to continue daily, only to be outdone by, at one point, Spicer actually appearing to defend Hitler for not gassing his people – which he clearly did.
Ted Cruz jokingly predicted Trump would ‘nuke Denmark’ during 2016 primary
On Wednesday, Gizmodo unearthed a clip from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) when he was running against Donald Trump in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, and one of the tongue-in-cheek warnings he made about the future president was particularly eye-opening.
"I wake up every day and laugh at the latest thing Donald has tweeted, because he's losing it," said Cruz. "But we need a commander in chief, not a Twitterer in chief. We need someone with judgment and the temperament to keep this country safe. I don’t know anyone who would be comfortable with someone who behaves this way having his finger on the button."
