Watch Anderson Cooper Rip Out Rod Blagojevich's Still Beating Heart and Slap Him With It

After Donald Trump pardoned Rod Blagojevich, the man was dumb enough to accept an interview on CNN with Anderson Cooper and audacious enough in the interview to call himself a political prisoner, comparing himself to Nelson Mandela.

Folks: Rod Blagojevich was convicted and sentenced to prison for selling Barack Obama’s Senate seat. He was convicted for lying. He was convicted for shaking down a children’s hospital. He was convicted of 20 counts. He appealed. He lost those appeals. He appealed to the Supreme Court. Twice. He lost those appeals. There was no lack of due process here. Rod Blagojevich was not a political prison. He was a corrupt one, but watch Cooper try to shut him down when Blagojevich claims the criminal justice system is unfair to people like him.

Anderson Cooper rips Blagojevich six new ones in this clip, and ends the interview by calling Blagojevich’s alternate set of facts “just bullshit.” Watch. You can feel the rage emanating from Cooper’s lustrous silver hair.

It was one of those rare times when the Twitter pile-on was 100 percent warranted.
