CNN’s Anderson Cooper called the President of the United States “pathetic” on Wednesday after conservative pundit Rick Santorum defended the notion that COVID-19 is a “blessing from God.”

In a video posted to Twitter earlier in the evening, Trump said that he was thankful for being infected with COVID-19 because the treatment left him feeling “perfect.”

“We have a president who is positive for COVID-19 in the White House,” Cooper explained on CNN, “possibly infecting others. And the White House and the president have been covering up when he became positive, when he last tested negative.”

“And he’s saying it’s a blessing from God,” the CNN host added, causing Santorum to interrupt.

“He said it’s a blessing from God because he now knows of a treatment that can help people,” Santorum opined.

“Are you saying he didn’t know?” Cooper shot back. “The fact he didn’t know that was a treatment beforehand is pretty pathetic. Only when it happens to him that he suddenly wakes up and pays attention?”

Now, experts warn that if Trump doesn't walk away from the fight and offer a peaceful transfer of power to the President-elect Joe Biden's incoming administration, it could hurt GOP chances to retain the U.S. Senate.

Conservative columnist accuses Republicans of turning their voters into a mob of anti-democracy fascists

Published

Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin attacked Republican officials who have spent the past decade turning their most ardent supporters into a kind of anti-democracy mob.

Writing her column on Monday, Rubin cited the CNN interviews with Gov. Larry Hogan (R-MD) and John Bolton as being one of a handful of Republicans willing to speak out against the tyranny that President Donald Trump is being allowed to continue.

“State election officials and judges throughout the country are serving as protectors of our democracy at a time when, frankly, Republican leaders in Washington, D.C., are failing miserably at the job, as are administration officials who have proven willing to degrade themselves, to serve the president’s brittle spirit instead of the Constitution and the American people," Rubin cited CNN's Jake Tapper from "State of the Union" this Sunday.

The First Lady's Office has said that Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations are expected to take place with smaller crowds.
