Anderson Cooper Wants To Know 'What The Hell' Rick Scott Is Talking About

Posted: Updated:

Anderson Cooper could not help but make fun of Florida governor Rick Scott on Tuesday for repeatedly dodging reporters' questions.

Scott recently appeared at a campaign stop in Tampa with police officers in uniform lined up behind him. However, it is illegal for public employees to participate in campaign activities while on duty or in uniform. A police union official has filed a state complaint against Scott, accusing him of coercing on-duty officers to attend his event.

It was just a "bite-sized brouhaha," Cooper said, but Scott's refusal to answer questions about the incident was what landed him on Tuesday night's "RidicuList." Instead of actually answering the questions, Scott repeatedly said that he is "proud" that 40 sheriffs have endorsed him and that he is "appreciative" of the support from law enforcement.

Cooper called it a true "masterclass" in "saying a whole bunch of stuff without ever, ever answering the question, no matter how many times the question is asked."

"I got two questions," he said, after watching the clips. "One, is Governor Scott appreciative of police officers who come to his events? Two, what the hell were we talking about?"
