As new information about the Nashville explosion continue to comes in, one person who seems to be happy about the situation is Nashville mayor John Cooper (democrat, of course). While being interviewed by TV stations, Cooper starts smiling and laughing while talking about the explosion, before expressing his concerns over a water main.

Here’s a longer version of the interview, where Cooper can be seen smirking earlier on. He continues to smile and laugh throughout the whole interview. He encourages the public to move on, before saying “This feels a little bit like a tragedy…. I hate to use that word, but yeah, a tragedy… It possibly was unnecessary.”

Laughing and hesitating to call it a tragedy, saying it was only possibly unnecessary.
