On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360°,” Woodward responded by saying: “I just hope no one would talk like that, frankly.”
“I think that just doesn’t fit. I’m sorry,” he added. “Anyone talks like that, whether it’s a dog whistle or whatever the intent is, it’s not, part of the point of this book is that we need to have a serious debate about serious issues. And to use invective and this attack rhetoric, whatever it might be, it sets us back.”
