CNN's Anderson Cooper is "genuinely sorry" for an off-color remark he made during a Friday interview with Jeffrey Lord.

Lord, a Trump supporter and frequent CNN contributor, was defending President Trump to Cooper amid reports that he called former F.B.I. chief James Comey a "nut job" when the CNN anchor interrupted him.

"If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it," Cooper said to a surprised Lord, who laughed at the remark. "I mean, I don't know what he would do that you would not defend. I mean, you're a loyal guy, I think that speaks well of you."

Cooper apologized on Twitter for the comment late Friday. "I regret the crude sentence i spoke earlier tonight and followed it up by apologizing on air. It was unprofessional. I am genuinely sorry."

Last week, Cooper went viral when he let an "eye roll" at Kellyanne Conway let during an interview discussing Comey's firing. Conway later called the remark sexist on an appearance with Fox.
