"We are witnessing a failure of presidential leadership at a time when this country, when we the people, need it more than ever, perhaps in our lifetime," Cooper began his Monday show on CNN. Cooper was particularly incensed that Trump said "I am your president of law and order." Cooper responded: "What the president doesn't seem to know or care is that the vast majority of those protesting, they too are calling for law and order," Cooper went on. "The president seems to think that dominating black people, dominating peaceful protesters, is law and order. It's not. He calls them thugs. Who is the thug here, hiding in a bunker, hiding behind a suit? Who is the thug? People have waited for days for this wannabe wartime president to say something. And this is what he says. And that is what he does." ALSO: Fox News' Tucker Carlson also ripped Trump on his Monday show -- for being too lenient on protesters.
