Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday doubled down on his criticism of CNN, focusing his ire on Anderson Cooper and saying the host “lied” about him.

“Not surprised @AC360 lied about me on @CNN last night. Par for the course,” the president’s eldest son tweeted, before referencing an earlier post that drew a response from Cooper. “I never said the pic of him was from [Hurricane] Florence. When I tweeted out the picture of @AC360 it was with a link to an article about CNN’s dwindling ratings. Nothing to do with Florence,” he said.

The article goes on to state the following:

The controversy began when Trump Jr. tweeted out a picture of Cooper in waist-high water while his crew stood on higher ground.

“It’s a shame that CNN’s ratings are down 41%. What’s worse is there’s a simple solution that they refuse to accept. Stop Lying to try to make @realDonaldTrump look bad,” Trump Jr. said, linking to a Breitbart article citing falling ratings for CNN.

Cooper then said during his show Monday night that the picture Trump Jr. tweeted was not from Tropical Storm Florence, but from Hurricane Ike in 2008, and that in the report he was discussing receding waters.

“I don’t expect the president’s son to ever admit he was wrong or one of the president’s former advisers or frankly anyone else who’s retweeted these pictures,” Cooper said. “But I at least thought that they and you should know the truth.”

While Trump Jr. stressed on Twitter Tuesday morning that he never mentioned Hurricane Florence, he did not explain why he included the picture in his first tweet.

  1. AC360 is all fake. If kneeling in the water with hip waders on wasn’t bs then what do you call it “somewhat misleading?” Jake Tapper, take a hike too!
