New Fox News Anchor Weirds People Out With His Striking Resemblance To Anderson Cooper

A Fox News interview had many online seeing double. Twitter users were quick to compare the new look of former Congressman Trey Gowdy to that of American journalist Anderson Cooper.

Gowdy was the guest host of Fox News Primetime, a new show on the Fox News channel currently rotating hosts weekly. The former Congressman was interviewing Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

However, it wasn't the substance of the interview that had people doing a double take.

Rather it was the surprising way Gowdy in glasses appeared to be trying to emulate Anderson Cooper.





In the interview, Graham was insisting witnesses not be called during the impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump. Instead, he wanted the FBI to explain more about the possible pre-planning of the attacks.

But the clip caused many online to laugh at the new look of Trey Gowdy who hadn't often been seen in glasses before. Between the specs and the change in hairstyle, many wondered if he was going for a specific look as the host of Fox News Primetime.

Gowdy is the former representative of South Carolina's 4th district, from 2011 to 2019. During this time, Gowdy led the investigation on the House Benghazi Committee, to determine any possible wrongdoing by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

With politics almost the exact opposite of the CNN journalist, Gowdy's similarity to Cooper had many taking jabs at the guest host.





Gowdy chose not to seek reelection in 2018, and instead pursued a legal career. In addition to the guest host position on Fox News Primetime, he's also a regular contributor to the network.

It is unknown how Anderson Cooper feels about the comparison, even if Gowdy was compared unfavorably. Cooper has a history of little patience with Fox News and their reporting.
