This is old news, so many people here have probably seen this. But for some reason, I haven't -- so I figure that many some others here haven't either. And even if you have, it's worth seeing it again.
This Anderson Cooper losing it in a laughing fit when interviewing Kellyanne Conway when she brings up "alternative facts" for the first time. (I've seen a clip of her famously saying it, but the clip was only three seconds, with the laughing hysterics cut out.)
As fun as it is to see him laughing, though, what I most love are his comments when he's able to blurt them out between gasps for breath.
The thing is, too, she really blew a huge chance. She came close a couple of times, saying that “You may find this funny, but…” and “I’m bigger than this…” but she largely stopped and just stood there in silence while being laughed at. And laughed at. And laughed at. If she had used that time to repeat the Trump Mantra of trashing The Media she really could have become heroic to the far right. Instead, she just stood there, being laughed at.
