Lara Trump is not taking CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s false accusations sitting down. She tweeted out a response on Saturday, without naming Cooper, that he “is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative.”

On his Friday “Anderson Cooper 360” program, President Trump’s daughter in law was insultingly charged by Cooper with, in effect, being responsible for last week’s controversial “send her back” chant that erupted at the Trump rally last week in Greenville, North Carolina.

The fake-news anchor also declared, “She’s just friggin’ lying” when he attacked her comments Friday morning on Fox News when she said, “The crowd themselves started chanting. It wasn’t the whole crowd. It was a couple people right there in the front. But he didn’t say it.”

In his derisive monologue, Cooper said: “He didn’t have to say ‘send her back,’ he’s already said it in tweets and the crowd was already primed to chant it by guess who? That’s right. Lara Trump.”

A clip was played showing the wife of Eric Trump on the rally stage, saying: “If you don’t love our country, the President said it, you can leave. Right?”

As opposed to what Cooper suggested, Lara Trump did not coach the crowd to chant, “Send her back.”

“Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the ‘send her back’ chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative. #FakeNews” her tweet read.

In fact, with little else to “prime” the pump of the leftist faithful other than abusing the overused “racist” accusation against conservatives, the media has tried to make a big deal about the crowd’s spontaneous chant, which of course was an expression of disapproval for Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hateful, anti-Semitic and un-American comments through her brief time in office.

President Trump has denied and argued against the onslaught of racism accusations by the left in response to his recent criticisms of “the squad,” saying his tweets and comments have nothing to do with race but with the Socialist-Dems’ negative views of the United States.

“I was not happy with it, I disagree with it,” the President said Thursday, referring to the rally crowd’s “Send her back!” chant. “But again, I didn’t say that, they did.”
