Anderson Cooper Hopes Kathy Griffin 'Bounces Back' After 'Inappropriate' Donald Trump Photo

Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin

Just because Anderson Cooper didn't approve of Kathy Griffin's controversial photo, doesn't mean he doesn't wish the best for his longtime cohost and pal.

ICYMI, the comedian was fired from CNN's New Year's special after a disturbing image of a beheaded Donald Trump was shared — something Anderson called "appalling," "disgusting," and "completely inappropriate."

During an event with Andy Cohen over the weekend in Phoenix, the 50-year-old journalist reiterated his stance on the issue while saying he wants "nothing but good things for her."

Late Night Hosts — And Anderson Cooper — Hilariously Break Down Donald Trump's 'Covfefe' Blunder! Watch!

Donald Trump is finally leaning into the giant riddle that is his presidency.

Along with the rest of us, late night TV hosts were beyond perplexed trying to decode POTUS' latest gaffe: mysteriously ending a tweet with the word "covfefe."

While most wrote off the tweet as a typo left up to keep the internet on its toes, Samantha Bee knew the snafu was an uncontrollable reaction to the President abstaining from his biggest vice! She quipped:

"This is what happens when you've abstained from your phone for 9 days, you ejaculate just like that. Covfefe!"

Hmm, maybe Sean Spicer was right when he said the word was understood by "the president and a small group of people"?

Trevor Noah had a different theory about the blunder, which was to distract the press from the fallout of his recent trip abroad.

And it worked!

Even CNN's Anderson Cooper had covfefe on the brain, giggling his way through Wednesday's AC360 as he read the funniest reaction tweets — though, he may not have understood every joke.

Don't worry, Coop — we're all equally confused these days! Ch-ch-check out the clips (below) for more covfefe coverage!

Not worth it.

Following the controversy surrounding Kathy Griffin's disturbing image of a beheaded Donald Trump, CNN has decided to cut ties with the comedian for their annual New Year's Eve special that she's been cohosting with Anderson Cooper for the past 10 years.

On Wednesday, the network tweeted:

Kellyanne Conway Accuses Anderson Cooper Of 'Sexism' Over THAT Epic Eye Roll!

| Filed under: TV NewsPolitikDonald TrumpAnderson CooperHillary ClintonBill ClintonGIFs

Kellyanne is pissed!!

Kellyanne Conway does not take to having someone roll their eyes at her… especially when it's Anderson Cooper!

In case you missed the moment, the CNN host had Donald Trump's minion on his show to talk the firing of (now former) FBI director James Comey, and well, he rolled his eyes at her! For some context, Kellyanne was blindly defending POTUS' actions and decided to bring up his victory in Michigan in the election.

It turns out, the White House rep actually feels Anderson's move was sexist as she implied in an interview with Fox and Friends on Thursday. We're not kidding!

She explained:

"He had me sit through a bunch of tapes showing then candidate Trump commending Jim Comey about Hillary Clinton's emails, talking about him etc. And the fact is that they showed all these clips and it showed candidate Trump in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and I said ‘Hey, thanks for the trip down memory lane and talked about winning Michigan,' and then he rolled his eyes. Let me tell you something, Hillary Clinton is in search of sexism as an excuse for why her disastrous candidacy and campaign lost six months ago, but I face sexism a lot of times when I show up for interviews like that. Can you imagine a male anchor rolling their eyes at Hillary Clinton or a female representative spokeswoman for President Obama or President Bill Clinton? I think not."

Ok, Kellyanne. Sure.

Kellyanne Conway is in way over her head, and everyone knows it!

On Tuesday evening, Donald Trump's counselor appeared on CNN to chat with Anderson Cooper about the President's decision to fire (now former) FBI director James Comey. Obviously, it didn't take long for things to get prickly between the Trump lackey and the Anderson Cooper 360 host.

Donald Trump Praises Australia's Universal Health Care System ~Moments~ After The House's Vote To Repeal Obamacare — But… But… Nevermind

| Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald TrumpAnderson CooperHealth

Donald Trump

What an idiot.

Just after the House's vote to repeal ACA (AKA Obamacare) on Thursday, Donald Trump met with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, where he praised Australia's universal healthcare system.

In case you're unaware, Australia's system, known as Medicare, gives citizens free access to doctors and public hospitals paid for by the government. Meanwhile, the GOP's plan allows insurance companies to charge more to people with pre-existing conditions (which includes things like sexual assault and C-sections), temporarily defunds Planned Parenthood, and cuts funding for Medicaid.

So, basically complete opposites.

Ryan Seacrest Tapped As Kelly Ripa's New Live! Cohost!

kelly ripa picks ryan seacrest live cohost

UPDATE 5/1/2017 9:10 A.M. EST: It's official! Ryan was announced as Kelly's new cohost during the show this morning!



We should've seen this casting coming.

As you may've heard, Kelly Ripa is slated to introduce her new Live! cohost today (May 1). And while the pint-sized TV personality has yet to confirm the news herself, CNN reports that her new partner in crime is none other than Ryan Seacrest. Yup, the hosting King is heading to New York in order to fill the big shoes Michael Strahan left behind.

In case you forgot, last year Strahan announced he would be leaving the morning show so that he could take on a full time position at Good Morning America. Nonetheless, Miz Ripa was in no rush to find Michael's replacement as she had a slew of A-list guest cohosts for about a year — including Anderson Cooper, Andy Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Neil Patrick Harris, Dwyane Wade, and others. We mean, Seacrest was even tapped several times to sit by Ripa's side while she searched for the right copilot. Well, it looks like the hunt is finally over. Phew!

Thankfully, Ryan has plenty of hosting experience on his resume as he hosted American Idol for years, has his own radio show (On Air with Ryan Seacrest), AND is the face of New Year's Rockin' Eve. In fact, we're kind of surprised that he has time to take on Live!. LOLz!

Regardless, we couldn't be happier for Ryan and Kelly on their new professional partnership. Squeeee!
