Trump refused to let Anderson Cooper protect Hillary Clinton when the debate turned to her email scandal.
Sunday night’s debate wouldn’t be complete without a flaming exchange between Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump and the moderators. On this particular occasion, he was irked that as soon as he began to ask Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton some serious questions about her email scandal, Anderson Cooper attempted to change the subject.
Trump refused to let Cooper off without letting the whole world what was happening.
Watch the video below:
After a contentious discussion about Hillary’s emails and Trump grilling her about what happened with the 30,000 emails that were reportedly deleted from her server, Cooper tried desperately to move on to another audience question, but Trump refuses.
Trump: “I’d like to know, Anderson, why aren’t you bringing up the emails? I’d like to know, why aren’t you -”
Cooper: “We brought up the emails.”
Trump: “No it hasn’t. -and it hasn’t been finished. At all.”
Of course, Trump was referring to the massive amount of emails that Hillary claims were “personal” and were deleted off of her server before handing the rest of the emails over to the FBI for investigation.
Meanwhile, Cooper and Martha Raddatz asked Donald Trump six questions about the leaked audio of him engaging in what he called “locker room talk” with host Billy Bush.
- Anderson Cooper: We received a lot of questions about the tape released on Friday. You called what you said locker room banter — kissing women without consent, grabbing their genitals. That is sexual assault. You bragged that you have sexually assaulted women. Do you understand that?
- Anderson Cooper: For the record, are you saying, that what you said on the bus 11 years ago, that you did not actually kiss women without consent or grope women without consent?
- Anderson Cooper: So, for the record you’re saying you never did that?
- Anderson Cooper: Have you ever done those things?
- Martha Raddatz: This tape is generating intense interest. In just 48 hours, it’s become the single most talked about story of the entire 2016 election on Facebook with millions and millions of people discussing it on the social network. As we said a moment ago, we want to bring in questions from voters around country via social media and our first stays on this topic. Jeff from Ohio asks on Facebook, ‘Trump says the campaign has changed him. When did that happen?’
- Martha Raddatz: So, Mr. Trump, let me add to that. When you walked off that bus at age 59, were you a different man, or did that behavior continue until just recently?
