Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper Compare Helsinki to 'Real Housewives' with Stephen Colbert

Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper appeared on 'The Late Show' with Stephen Colbert Wednesday to promote their upcoming tour, but the conversation quickly turned to President Donald Trump's recent Helsinki summit. 

Watch the video below, via CBS:

Cooper and Cohen joined Colbert to talk about their ongoing “AC2” tour and after a few minutes of friendly non-political banter, the late night host asked Cooper about his viral post-Helsinki press conference comments.

“You called Trump's performance 'disgraceful,'” Colbert began, only to be cut off by Cooper who was quick to correct him with his full reaction statement.

“I said, 'The most disgraceful performance by an American president on the world stage in my lifetime.' It just popped out, I'm not saying it proudly or gleefully. It just popped out,” Cooper clarified. 

Colbert then joked with Cooper saying that the CNN host could call the conference the most “graceful performance” because the president backtracked on his initial statement made during the post-summit press conference. 

The conversation took a satirical turn when Cohen started drawing comparisons between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin's summit with his taping of the “Real Housewives of New York” reunion show.

“Bethany is an oligarch,” said Colbert, getting in on the joke. “She'll poison her enemies with that Skinny Girl s**t.”

Cohen then mockingly compared Trump's Monday press conference, where the president claimed he meant to say “wouldn't" instead of "would" when he said "I don't see any reason why it would be [Russia],” that meddled in American elections, to that of a “Real Housewives” apology.   

“That is a classic housewife apology. I mean, for real, changing the words,” Cohen jokingly compared. 

“Andy is convinced our worlds have joined,” Cooper said in response to the comparison.

The pair of friends then jokingly compared presidential debates to “housewive reunions,” and Cohen insisted that Cooper stole his “can everybody say something nice about each other” bit from him to use in a Trump-Clinton debate.

Cooper quickly reminded him, that it was an audience question at a town hall debate.
