CNN's Anderson Cooper clashes with combative Roy Moore spokeswoman in bonkers interview

CNN's Anderson Cooper pulled no punches in a confrontational interview with Roy Moore's spokeswoman Wednesday night in which he pressed her to answer questions about the Senate nominee's positions on big issues - and lambasted her inability to answer a lot of them.

Porter, who is from OH, called the Alabama Senate race "Ground Zero for religious liberty and Ground Zero for life", before comparing the allegations against Moore to the Duke Lacrosse case and railing against the Democratic establishment, the Republicans establishment, homosexuals, the mainstream media and more for teaming up against Moore.

"First off, when we talk about believing the women, I would ask the question of maybe some lacrosse players at Duke University, ask them if they believe every woman who makes an accusation", Porter said. She also repeatedly referred to Doug Jones, Moore's Democratic opponent in the Alabama Senate race, as "Abortion Jones" (apparently her go-to nickname for Jones, as she also referred to him by that name during a December 2 county Republican rally). Porter insisted the accusations were false - planted by "the lynch mob media" and promoted by a host of conspirators, including the "Democrat establishment", people from the "abortion lobby" and billionaire George Soros. "Can you just explain to me how all these people got together?" "That's how a lynch mob works". "When you have false allegations that are generated by The Washington Post, there tends to be a pile-on", Porter said.

Cooper and Porter fought it out over Moore's alleged sexual abuse against minors, his multiple removals from the Alabama Supreme Court, and literally everything else in between.

"Poppy, we need to make it clear that there's a group of non- accusers that have not accused the judge of any sexual misconduct or anything illegal", Porter said.

"I can't answer that question", Porter replied. "I know you're not from Alabama, but you seem not to know what his positions are".

"Can you get back to me on whether or not he believes homosexuality should be illegal?"


During her Tuesday interview with Harlow, Porter said she did not believe any of the women who'd come forward to say Roy Moore molested or attacked them when they were teens and he in his early 30s.

"Does he still believe that 9/11 may have happened because, "we distanced ourselves from God"?" During her interview with Cooper, it became apparent that Porter knew little about the positions Moore has taken on various issues, despite her new job as Moore's spokesperson.

"Does he still believe an American citizen who's a Muslim should not serve in Congress?"

Cooper cited Moore's past statement, in which he said, he believed that Minnesota congressman Keith Ellison should not be allow to swear on the Quran.

"You don't know the answer to that either, whether he still believes that?"

"You can ridicule his biblical beliefs if you want", Porter replied, not answering the question.

"If you don't want to answer, that's fine". Porter, however, was either unable to answer the questions or attempted to evade them entirely. "He picks the Constitution over Sharia law and the people of Alabama agree".
