Twitter not kind to Carolyn Goodman after Anderson Cooper interview

Updated April 22, 2020 - 3:03 pm

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman went on CNN for an interview with Anderson Cooper on Wednesday. It didn’t take long for social media to jump on Goodman’s responses. Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel was quick to call for Goodman’s resignation. The vast majority of social media reactions weren’t much kinder.

Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones didn’t mince his words, writing, “Carolyn Goodman is an embarrassment for our city. Her comments are insulting to both the citizens and the businesses in Southern Nevada. To be clear, @mayoroflasvegas is not my mayor. #notmymayor”

@incashamana tweeted, “And people are still defending her. She didn’t make sense, didn’t sound professional. And is saying people in Las Vegas should be the guinea pigs for testing the spread. Oh but she won’t go in the casino because she has a family”

@NickAnt38280217 said, “She has no business being a mayor of any city she has done nothing to help the city and has zero knowledge during these times”

Las Vegas poker player Daniel Negreanu thought the interview was very one-sided … and not in Goodman’s favor.

Not everyone saw Goodman’s responses as a negative.

@teter_casey supported Goodman’s position. 

Las Vegas was trending on Twitter after the interview aired.
