Anderson Cooper: If Republicans Said Clinton Was Not Legitimate, "Democrats Would Be Up In Arms"


CNN's Anderson Cooper hosts a panel that reacted to Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) calling President Trump "illegitimate." Cooper said Lewis "doesn't want to accept the results of the election" and that if Republicans said the same thing about a President Hillary Clinton, Democrats would be "up in arms."

Congressman Lewis says he believes Russia helped destroyed Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and conspired to help Donald Trump win the White House.

"I get he doesn't like Donald Trump, I get that he doesn't want to accept the results of the election," Cooper said Friday night. "But is this helpful in any way to have Congressman Lewis, who is obviously a highly respected figure for his civil rights record? I mean if a Republican said this about a President-elect Hillary Clinton Democrats would be up in arms."
