On Monday, as CNN’s Anderson Cooper reported on President Donald Trump’s largely unmasked rally in Sanford, Florida, the campaign began blasting “Macho Man” — a hit song by the 1970s gay, multiracial disco group “Village People.”
Cooper’s incredulous reaction to the choice of song by a president with an aggressively anti-LGBTQ record earned instant reactions on social media.

Anderson Cooper is every gay man in America right now when he hears Macho Man playing at a Trump Rally. The irony of a gay anthem playing at a Trump Rally is lost on the crowd. #machoman #TrumpRallyFlorida # pic.twitter.com/A3LyiVrSNi

Trump is trying to ‘monetize defeat’ by bilking fans for a personal ‘slush fund’: Ex-GOP lawmaker
Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA) on Monday said that President Donald Trump likely knows he lost the 2020 presidential election but is taking one more opportunity to bilk his supporters for cash before leaving on January 20th.
Appearing on CNN, Dent argued that the president is already angling for a new grift after leaving the White House, and he's getting an early start on it by asking fans to donate to his legal defense fund.
‘The president’s legal strategy is in tatters’ and the GOP knows Trump’s coup is failing: NYT reporter
President Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election are getting crushed in courts -- and more members of his own party are finally saying publicly that it's time for the president to give up his long-shot bid to remain in power.
New York Times reporter Alex Burns told CNN on Monday many Republicans can see the writing on the wall but are still working up the courage to nudge the president out the door.
Lara Trump buried by CNN host for claiming Trump voters don’t ‘feel’ like he lost
Lara Trump appeared on Fox News to further the Trump campaign agenda that the 45th president of the United States, her father-in-law, won the election.
"There are about 74 million people out there who do not feel like the result of this election that has been presented is accurate," she told Fox News host Leland Vittert.
In a recap segment on CNN's Reliable Sources Sunday afternoon, chief media correspondent Brian Stelter responded, "Lara Trump is wrong, by the way, to say that every Trump voter feels that this thing was rigged." Speaking of feelings, he added, "Facts do not care about your feelings ... This conspiracy crap is just like Trump's anti-media enemy of the people smear. It's a slow-acting poison that is crippling the American [body of] politics."
