Anderson Cooper joined the fun on Tuesday.
At the end of a conversation with David Gergen, the director of the Center for Public Leadership, the political operative said the Republican party is in a position of weakness and is "'searching for their voice."
How could Cooper ignore such a set-up? He replied: "It's hard to talk when you're tea-bagging."
