An absolutely terrible scene in a city that has already had a brutal year… but listening to Mayor Cooper, you wouldn’t know it.
Talking with local media, Mayor Cooper addressed the bombing earlier today, and at one point, began laughing about the situation.
You’d think the mayor wouldn’t be laughing about a bombing in his city, but lo and behold Mayor Cooper found a way to give the most awkward interview of all time. Needless to say, it pissed people off.
This is truly ridiculous. This is the third interview I've seen this morning of Mayor Cooper laughing about a terrorist attack on our city on Christmas morning. Read the room, guy. https://t.co/qZPDcj3nK9
I really didn’t want to get political with the Nashville explosion but the Cooper brothers have to go. Mayor John Cooper is on TV laughing about explosions and Rep. Jim Cooper hasn’t tried to keep our citizens informed on safety today.
