Anderson Cooper is over President Donald Trump's Twitter drama.
The CNN anchor told Stephen Colbert on "The Late Show" Monday night that he has grown so tired of the daily tirades that he's "actually muted the President on Twitter."
"Don’t tell him,” Cooper said in the interview (above). "When you get annoying people tweeting you, you don’t want to delete because then that tells them you’ve deleted them, so if you just mute them, they think you’re still following them and you don’t actually see their tweets."
Cooper regularly reports on Trump and has tried to pry the truth out of White House advisor Kellyanne Conway a number of times on the air, but it seems he tries to disconnect from politics when he's not on TV.
“I just don’t want to have that drama in my life," Cooper said. "I have great respect for the president — I just don’t need to follow him on Twitter. Listen, I have friends who have mania, I don’t want to be around them all the time.”
In case you weren't keeping track, Cooper just called the President overly dramatic, annoying and manic. Then he made it clear he actually has no interest in having "a relationship" with anyone from the White House, and singled out Conway, in particular.
"I also don’t want to really have a relationship with these people,” Cooper said. "I interviewed Kellyanne Conway a couple weeks ago — probably, maybe my last interview with her ever, I don’t know. I’m not saying anything bad about her, I haven’t interviewed her since, and it was supposed to be a 12-minute interview and it ended up being 26 minutes, and at one point in the interview, she said something to me along the lines of, ‘You know, we may have to rethink the relationship we have.’ I’m like, ‘We don’t have a relationship.'"
