Watch what happens live Host Cohen has been in close friendship with CNN host Cooper for 25 years.

“Well, it’s 2020 and I’m sitting on deck so I thought I’d post without asking and pissing him off! #Silver Fox.”
One of the photos showed Cooper a rose folded behind his ear.
Cohen later addressed his fans on Instagram Stories.
“Anderson is so mad at me, guys. But listen, I’m just sitting here, I’m bored under a blanket.”
