Anderson Cooper Grills Florida AG Pam Bondi on LGBT Support

Anderson Cooper‘s interview with Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is going viral after he called her out for hypocrisy over her stance on LGBT issues.

The politician has said that she is championing the gay community following the Orlando shooting, though she was against marriage equality when it was an issue in the courts.

“I talked to a lot of gay and lesbian people here yesterday who are not fans of yours and said that they thought you were being a hypocrite, that you for years have fought—you’ve basically gone after gay people, said that in court that gay people simply by fighting for marriage equality were trying to do harm to the people of Florida. Do you really think you’re a champion of the gay community?” Anderson said.

“I’ve never said I don’t like gay people,” Bondi responded. She also said that she never said gay marriage would “harm” the people of Florida.

“The hotline that you’ve been talking about on television, which allows family members and spouses of the dead to get information, which is incredibly important, and I appreciate you talking about on the air, had there been no gay marriage, no same-sex marriage, you do realize that spouses—there would be no spouses, that boyfriends and girlfriends of the dead would not be able to get information and would not be able to visit in the hospital here. Isn’t there a sick irony in that?” Anderson added.

Anderson Cooper Doesn't Think Reporters Should Vote

Anderson Cooper says he does not plan on voting in the upcoming presidential election and doesn’t think other reporters should either.

“I don’t think reporters should vote,” the 48-year-old CNN anchor said on The Howard Stern Show. “A lot of reporters don’t vote. It’s a thing.”

“I’ve had the debate. There have been years where I have voted because sometimes I thought maybe I should. I’ve gone back and forth on it,” Anderson continued. “I don’t want to be influenced one way or the other. My role is to ask questions.”

“I honestly can’t remember,” Anderson said about his last time voting. “I don’t like feeling that I’ve taken a stand. I think [voting] is something [reporters] actively need to fight against and push against. It’s not my role.”

Anderson Cooper Tells Donald Trump He's Using the 'Argument of a Five-Year-Old' (Video)

Anderson Cooper shut down Donald Trump while discussing the unflattering photo he retweeted of his opponent Ted Cruz‘s wife.

“I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi,” the Republican presidential candidate said during the CNN Town Hall on Tuesday night (March 29) in Milwaukee, Wis.

“Come on, you’re running for president of the United States,” Anderson replied.

“Look, I didn’t start it,” Trump said, to which Anderson responded, “Sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a five-year-old.”

“It is not!” Donald replied. Anderson continued, “The argument of a five-year-old is, ‘He started it’!”
