You can pinpoint the exact moment Anderson Cooper’s soul exits his body

Everyone’s favorite CNN anchor, Anderson Cooper, has delivered an amazing content gem that you will want to watch repeatedly to brighten your day. During his show the other night, a video from Trump’s latest COVID bath — one of his not remotely socially distanced rallies — was the topic du jour, and the reporter at the scene of Patient Zero’s mass gathering is trying desperately to straight-report amid a ridiculous moment. And Anderson’s reaction is just pure gold.

It began when CNN reporter Gary Tuchman described the scene to Cooper, and what it was like interviewing Trump supporters who refused to wear a mask despite the fact that Trump was very recently infected with COVID-19 and despite the fact that there were a ridiculous amount of people in attendance who were not in any way complying with social distancing protocol. Oh and despite the fact that our very recently infected with COVID president had just tossed masks out into the crowd. That he touched. After very recently being infected with COVID.

Then, suddenly, in the background of the audio, the extremely recognizable notes of the song “Macho Man” by the Village People begin to play, and both men try so hard to continue their very serious reporting. But it’s clear that the song, a ridiculous anthem for a president who hasn’t so much as ever started a lawnmower, lifted a weight, or opened a can of beer — or any other stereotypical activity that many of his supporters would likely describe as “macho.”
