Bonkers New Trump Audio Stuns Anderson Cooper: Sounds Like 'Nixon Drunk Rambling'
CNN's Anderson Cooper played a new audio of Donald Trump on Wednesday night, in which the former president gossiped about the January 6 uprising and reiterated false claims about the 2020 election.
In the audio, taken from an interview with Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker of the Washington Post for their book "I Alone Can Fix It", Trump insisted that the mob attacking the US Capitol was "a loving crowd" be.
“You were brought in by the police. I mean, in fairness, the Capitol Police brought people in, "Trump said. “The Capitol Police were very friendly, they hugged and kissed. You can't see that, but there's plenty of tape for that too. "
The footage showed the Capitol Police being overwhelmed and attacked by a violent mob who then broke into the building and ransacked Congress. At least 138 officers sustained injuries, including burns, concussions and fractures.
Trump then made wilder and debunked claims, including the misconception that it was statistically impossible for him to have lost to Joe Biden, and attacked the judges who ruled against him.
"It's like listening to Nixon drunk talk, only he's not drunk," Cooper said. "He just wanders off and still holds on to all of these lies."
Cooper called it disgusting that Trump believes it is "loving" people who attacked the US Capitol.
