WATCH: Anderson Cooper Ridicules Pat Robertson Over Our Secret AIDS Rings

We’ve known forever that Pat Robertson is ridiculous, but Anderson Cooper has finally gotten into the game and used the “Ridiculist” segment of his CNN program to take the wind out of the jurassic sage. Cooper begins the segment by acknowledging that he traditionally ignores Robertson, whom he compares to an elderly relative who sits at the table uttering nonsense in between chewing on soft foods. However, Robertson’s latest rant which warned 700 Club viewers about our secret gay rings (who told him? I want names!) we use to spread AIDS (or “the stuff,” as Pat prefers to call it) just proved to be irresistible to the silver fox.

“Really?” Cooper asked mockingly. “A ring that gives you AIDS. I’ve never seen that particular section of Zales. Have you?”

Cooper understands Robertson’s concern. He just doesn’t want to give gay men (who, according to Pat, all live in San Francisco) an excuse to wear more jewelry.

  • Katbox

  • B Damion

    @GlitterKidder ….I was wondering when this story would segue into the Nick and Calvin story lol..

    I just love looking at Anderson.He is just so handsome to me.
    …ok..Ok I have got to sleep with a white or latino man this weekend. I have been lusting after them all week.

    Also, I really think that Pat R should be spoon-fed his lines. Nolonger should he be allowed to go off script.

    I hope the show keeps letting PR spout off; his rants are getting wilder, and more and more ‘evangelicals’ are realizing he’s crazy! Works for me.

    The sad thing is that people that that Robertson has just gone crazy.

    No, this was the world before FAcebook and Youtube.

    People like Robertson lied about things constantly, they were just never called on it.

    Remember John McCain’s youtube videos during that election where it would show multiple clips of him claiming he had never said or done something only to have the next clip showing him saying or doing it in the past?

    The media would never call them on it. Youtube and Facebook have killed them basically.

    @B Damion: lol. Yeah I get it my partner is white ;)

    Just dug out one of my old Deicide CDs. Track 4 is called “Kill the Christian”. Don’t agree with the sentiment, but in his case…….
