WATCH: Anderson Cooper Ruthlessly Mocks Donald Trump Jr.

In an effort to keep their viewers informed on different aspects of the coronavirus, CNN has held a number of town hall events. Many of these have been about the medical side of the pandemic and have featured doctors like Sanjay Gupta. On Thursday night, the program focused on the environmental aspect of COVID-19 and had a segment with Greta Thunberg.

Like his father, Donald J. Trump apparently has an issue with the 17 year old climate activist and sent a mocking tweet. In the lead in to his show Anderson Cooper relentlessly blasted Trump Jr. over his Thunberg take and many other things.

Trump Jr. tweeted on Thursday, “Greta Thunberg having a remarkable career already in that as a teenager she’s now a world renowned infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist AND a leading scientific voice when it comes to global climate policy. Just wow so impressive.”

On his night time broadcast, Cooper went in on the first son. “Apparently someone with a blue check on Twitter saw the initial ad, was outraged, and claimed we had booked Greta Thunberg to be an expert on a coronavirus panel with other health experts,” he said. “Then, of course Donny Trump Jr. jumped into this, which is weird, because I thought he was allegedly running whatever was left of the Trump organization. Shouldn’t that be a really busy job since it’s allegedly such a great big company?”

The CNN host continued his attack:

“Look, I get Donny Trump Jr attacking CNN and a 17-year-old Swede. That’s like low hanging fruit. That’s like paying thousands of dollars to shoot exotic animals on a game farm. It’s easy. And I know Donny Trump Jr. just wants his dad to love him or notice him in a way that’s not mocking him, but I just find it fascinating to watch the phony online outrage machine. In the words of our dear leader: SAD.”
