This week, the Media Research Center posted a study of one CNN day showing that the network is obsessed with President Trump and that the overwhelming majority of CNN’s experts opining on Trump are highly negative. CNN’s rare allowance of pro-Trump voices often come from commentators they pay to defend Trump. So why insult them when that’s what you pay them to do?

On his primetime show Friday night, Anderson Cooper interrupted one of Jeffrey Lord's defenses of Trump night by saying "if he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it." Lord laughed and just kept making his point. Earth to Cooper: You’re paying him to defend Trump.

After a whirlwind week in Washington, D.C. with the liberal media pouncing on every Trump news development as if it was the final nail in his presidency, CNN’s ‘ridiculous figure’ Brian Stelter and Anderson Cooper attacked conservative media for not sharing their excitement. “Downplay, deflect and deny. Conservative media types are at it again, whipping up alternative theories to explain away the threat that James Comey poses to President Trump,” Stelter chastised on Anderson Cooper 360 Thursday night.

All the media could talk about Tuesday night was how President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. As unfounded speculation about Trump’s assumed guilt swirled, CNN political commentator David Gregory was in a visible rage over the whole ordeal. At the end of the eight o’clock hour, he declared that the firing was a display Trump’s “disdain” for the rule of law. But what was on full display was Gregory’s disdain for the Trump administration

Following President Trump’s unusual comments about President Andrew Jackson being able to stop the Civil War, the media was all abuzz trying to figure out what he meant by it. During CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night, commenter Jeffrey Lord explained that Trump might have been attracted to Jackson’s economic populism, but Lord condemned Jackson’s racism. He also reminded viewers that it was Democrats who backed slavery and racism. That didn’t sit well with New York Times columnist Charles Blow, who proceeded to rail against Republicans.

Barack Obama isn’t even in office anymore but Democrats are still pining for their long lost savior. Liberal commentator and former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, Angela Rye bemoaned this fact on Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night. After discussing Congressman Devin Nunes’ comments about the investigation into Trump’s wiretapping claims, Rye expressed outrage that the media wasn’t talking about other issues, instead of talking about “something that didn’t happen.”

Late Wednesday evening, news broke that another liberal judge had put a temporary hold on the implementation of President Donald Trump’s travel ban. And during CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, commentator Van Jones voiced his approval. “An action can be ruled unconstitutional if it's on the face of it, it looks like it's a good thing but there's an intent that's unconstitutional,” he argued, “There's a discriminatory intent here. And the discriminatory intent of the Trump administration is clear.”

Late Tuesday evening, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow sent out an enticing tweet declaring that she would expose newly authenticated copies of President Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns. As her show aired and the White House put out their official statement, it became clear that the hype was much to do about nothing. The revelation that Trump made roughly $150 million and paid $38 million in taxes fell so flat that the panel of Anderson Cooper 360 laughed about how good it made Trump look, with one saying it wasn’t “explosive” at all.

On Thursday's Anderson Cooper 360, host Cooper got guest Jorge Ramos of Univision to admit that it is a "good thing" that illegal immigration has dropped 40 percent since President Donald Trump took office. But, after complaining that Trump's policies are "xenophobic," and that the President wants to "make American white again," Ramos ended up repeating the misinformation circulating on the left that illegal immigrants are less likely to commit crimes than the population in general in spite of studies showing the opposite.

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on Monday night admitted that he “muted” the President of the United States on Twitter because Donald Trump represents “annoying people” you don’t want to hear. Talking to Stephen Colbert on the Late Show, the journalist allowed, “I have actually muted the president on Twitter. Don't tell him.”

On CNN Thursday night, the proverbial moving of the goal posts regarding the Jeff Sessions situation was on full display, shifting from demanding recusal in Russian investigations to resignation and calls for charges of perjury and treason.

On Wednesday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, during a discussion of President Donald Trump's response to the recent targeting of Jewish sites, liberal CNN commentators Kirsten Powers and Errol Louis -- as well as host Anderson Cooper -- all had a problem with Trump advisor Anthony Scaramucci recently reminding the media that no one knows whether the culprits are Democrats or Republicans. And reacting to Scaramucci recalling that Democrats were sent to disrupt Trump events, Louis even referred to the story as a "nonexistent conspiracy" and a "conspiracy theory."
