Rick Santorum Wants Trump To Email A Therapist, Not Tweet, He Tells Anderson Cooper

"This is his time just to sort of let it all out. I wish he wouldn't do that," the former senator tells Anderson Cooper.

Donald Trump offered up an unhinged tweetstorm over the weekend, and a former Republican senator has some advice for the president the next time he has that urge.

Rick Santorum, usually a Trump defender, said on “Anderson Cooper 360°” on Monday that he hopes the president will “send emails to a therapist” instead of tweeting.

In a flurry of rants, Trump accused “Saturday Night Live” of “Russian collusion,” blasted Fox News anchors who criticize him, demanded the network “bring backJeanine Pirro, and railed against the late Sen. John McCain — again — for the Steele dossier. The one thing he didn’t mention was sympathy for the victims of the attack on two New Zealand mosques that killed at least 50 people.

Cooper asked Santorum if someone’s dad or uncle sent out 29 tweets or retweets in one day “wouldn’t their family be a little concerned — or, like, have a “Twitter-vention?”

“Yeah, there’s nothing I’m going to do to defend the president in this type of activity,” Santorum said.

“This is his time just to sort of let it all out,” he added. “He sees Twitter as his outlet to do that. I wish he wouldn’t do it. I wish he’d ... send emails to ... a therapist, as opposed to sending tweets to the general public.”
