Anderson Cooper asks CNN's pundit, Jeffrey Lord about his favorite candidate, Donald Trump and his Twitter controversies. More specifically, he addressed Trump's habit of 'Retweeting' inflammatory Tweets that might be considered less than Presidential.

COOPER: There's political correctness then there's like, there's Presidential behavior and then there's human decency.

LORD: Well, well, Bill Clinton wasn't terribly into Presidential behavior either, I mean, we've had lots of Presidents not into Presidential behavior. My point to you is that what Donald Trump has done is reinvent Presidential and political convention. He is, as a fellow CNN colleague said in a column, and Rush Limbaugh, compared him to Steve Jobs, to Amazon, to Uber, etcetera. This is not your father's Presidential campaign. This is a totally different way of approaching American politics, approaching convention. The political correctness thing; we're done with that; so whatever comes out, comes out.

Cooper brings up the fact that Trump's wife, Melania, posed nude and herself appeared on several magazine covers, but it seems Donald Trump doesn't anticipate (or care) that the term could possibly be used against his own wife, a potential 'First Lady' (Heaven forbid). Lord's combative response was not the least bit surprising.

COOPER: Should he be throwing around the term 'bimbo' regarding another woman.

LORD: Are you saying Mrs. Trump is a bimbo?

If only Anderson Cooper could have spoken his mind at that point...

Fortunately for Trump, if anyone dare call his wife a bimbo, he could go all Kim Jong Un on them and have them conveniently eliminated, lest anyone have any doubts.
