Anderson Cooper Destroys Pat Robertson's 'Towels Have AIDS' Warning

Anderson Cooper Destroys Pat Robertson's AIDS Comments

Anderson Cooper tore straight into conservative Christian media personality Pat Robertson on Tuesday night for his ridiculous and offensive claims about AIDS.

While responding to a "The 700 Club" viewer, Robertson cautioned traveling to Kenya, not because of Ebola, but because "the towels could have AIDS."

During the latest edition of the "Ridiculist" on "Anderson Cooper 360," the visibly infuriated host set the record straight:

"Just to be clear, if, like Pat Robertson, you somehow missed all the evidence, all the research, the depth and breadth of all the knowledge garnered about HIV and AIDS over the past three decades, you cannot get HIV if you share towels," Cooper said.

The CNN host went on to tease that maybe the best thing for all of us to do is to just stay in the United States and not travel at all.

"Except steer clear of San Francisco," he added. "Because that's of course where all the gay people live and Pat Robertson thinks they have an ingenious way of giving you 'the stuff.'"

Cooper for the win.
