Anderson Cooper called out President Obama on his Tuesday show for flip-flopping his stance on same-sex marriage.

During his “Keeping Them Honest” segment, Cooper said “New questions are being raised about what the president actually believes about gay marriage and whether his public opposition to it is real or just political posturing.”

He then narrated Obama’s position on gay marriage; initially supporting it in a written statement back in 1996, to opposing it when he began running for national office.

Cooper said, “Hard to see how the president’s position has changed so much. The only thing that has changed is his need for a wider audience to vote for him.”

The Huffington Post Reports:

Cooper then brought on gay rights activist Cleve Jones and Democratic strategist Paul Begala to discuss Obama’s flip-flopping. Jones called the president’s moves a “political calculation, and sadly, I think it’s the wrong one.”

“You know, Paul, Democrats attack conservatives for being hypocritical on issues that they’re hypocritical about,” Cooper said to Begala. “But I don’t hear a lot of Democrats attacking their own president for hypocrisy.”

The White House recently released a statement that Obama feels the issue of same-sex marriage should be left up to the States.
