PHOTO: Conservatives Spread Meme Online of a Picture of Anderson Cooper Standing in Waist High Water, Claims Media Is Lying to Us

Many still continued to claim that Cooper was on his knees to make the water look deeper.

That’s when the homophobic jokes about Cooper, who is gay, ensued.

Others diverted to another video that went viral. This time, of Weather Channel Reporter Mike Seidel appearing to fake struggling against strong winds as two people behind him walked past casually.

To give Conservatives credit, at least this footage was actually from Hurricane Florence. However, The Weather Channel claimed that Seidel was merely trying to keep his balance on the slippery grass:

“It’s important to note that the two individuals in the background are walking on concrete, and Mike Seidel is trying to maintain his footing on wet grass, after reporting on-air until 1:00 a.m. ET this morning and is undoubtedly exhausted.”

While this explanation may not be convincing, it still doesn’t somehow discredit CNN–an entirely different network. In fact, CNN’s own Twitter pointed out Seidel’s theatrics.

Nevertheless, as has been proven time and again, facts don’t tend to matter unless they’re of the alternative variety.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence has killed over 20 people.
