WATCH: Anderson Cooper Mocks Trump’s Weight “just a little man despite his girth and size”

Taking a page out of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s playbook, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper took aim at President Trump’s weight.

“He doesn’t have the guts to say, ‘You know what, I don’t care what they think because this serves my political purposes.’ That’s why he’s doing it. He doesn’t have the guts to say that because he is just a little man despite his girth and size,” Cooper said. “He’s a little man inside and he knows that.”

Anderson Cooper took a page out of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s playbook and criticized President Trump’s weight on Tuesday night.

Cooper, who CNN bills as an “anchor” not an opinion host, was criticizing Trump for widely condemned tweets about the tragic 2001 death of Lori Klausutis, a staffer who died in Joe Scarborough’s office when the now-MSNBC host was a Republican congressman. Cooper evoked Trump’s weight when scolding Trump for refusing to accommodate Klausutis’ widower, who has asked for the tweets to be removed.

“He doesn’t have the guts to say, ‘You know what, I don’t care what they think because this serves my political purposes.’ That’s why he’s doing it. He doesn’t have the guts to say that because he is just a little man despite his girth and size,” Cooper said. “He’s a little man inside and he knows that.”

While Trump has been criticized from all sides for his tweets about Klausutis, news anchors historically refrain from offering their opinions. Perhaps Cooper was inspired by Pelosi, D-Calif., who took a shot at Trump’s weight on Cooper’s show last week amid the revelation that he has been taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine.
