During Monday's edition of Anderson Cooper 360, the eponymous host played a clip of Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, one of several politicians using Martin Luther King Day as an excuse to smear President Trump as a racist. Jeffries called the President a "hater," the "birther-in-chief," and "the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue." Cooper brought in his panel, New York Times columnist and CNN Contributor Charles Blow and former Trump Campaign Adviser Steve Cortes. Cooper asked Blow if he thought it was "appropriate for a sitting member of Congress to refer to the President as the grand wizard of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue." Blow responded, "I can't object to that because I've referred to him as the grand wizard of birtherism myself."
