Anderson Cooper Speaks On Kathy Griffin/Trump Scandal: THIS IS NOT A JOKE Comments (0)

Anderson Cooper, whose response to his friend Kathy Griffin's Trump Anderson Cooper scandal — she was pictured holding a bloody Trump mask — was to say it “appalled” him, was “clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate,” has now clarified his remarks at a fan event.

Via USA Today: Asked about the brouhaha, Cooper said:

People were assuming I was somehow responsible for this and I just felt I should point out that I actually think this is pretty important as somebody who works overseas and, you know, journalists get beheaded and this is not a joke.

He also said:

Anyway, I said that and CNN made the decision not to bring her back. I had nothing to do with it, but I certainly understand why they made that decision. And look, I wish her well and I hope she bounces back and keeps doing what she does best, which is make people laugh.

For her part, Griffin has said of Cooper original rebuke, “That hurt. That's all.”

Kathy Griffin's Tearful Presser About Trump: HE BROKE ME Comments (0)

Via Time: At an emotional, 30-plus-minute press conference alongside her new publicist Lisa Bloom, Kathy Griffin confronted the controversy swirling around the image of herself holding a mask representing the severed head of Donald Trump.

Griffin, who has apologized and stands by the apology, said tearfully:

I don't think I'm going to have a career after this. I'm going to be honest. He broke me. A sitting president of the United States and his grown children and the First Lady, personally, I feel, are trying to ruin my life forever.

Saying the photo was meant to parody Trump's grotesque comment that Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” following a feud with Trump, Griffin admitted her old friend Anderson Cooper's condemnation, in particular, “hurt.”

If you don't stand up, you get run over. — Kathy Griffin

She also vowed to make fun of Trump more than ever, and took exception to Melania's suggestion that Kathy may be mentally ill, saying:

I think there's a lot of people in this administration that seem, like, super nuts, and I think it's weird that  [the media] or anybody's acting like they're not.

I am still Team Kathy — it's not even close! — but wish she would walk away and regroup for a while so the media can focus on Russia and the Paris Climate Accord and health care. I did definitely appreciate that “super nuts” remark — which is a good observation.

Trump Called Comey A NUT JOB To Russians, Said Firing Would EASE PRESSURE; Cooper DUMPS On Trump Lackey Comments (0)

Trump told the Russians in that infamous, closed-door (except to Russian media!) Screen Shot 2017-05-20 at 12.16.02 PMmeeting that James Comey was a “nut job,” and that firing him should ease the pressures he had been facing regarding the Russia-Trump probe.

That's a confession.

Meanwhile, Trump-until-I-die! loyalist Jeffrey Lord, who for some reason is given the time of day on CNN, defended everything Trump said to the Russians, including his accidental leaking of highly classified intel gained from Israel regarding ISIS, prompting Anderson Cooper to exclaim:

If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it.

Lord laughed uproariously, as befitting a partisan, yes, nut job with no code of ethics.

Cooper later pointlessly apologized for his true observation.

Anderson Cooper's Eyeroll '20! Comments (0)

Anderson-Cooper-Kellyanne-Conway(Video still via CNN)

Kellyanne Conway was brought out of mothballs to give another of her Baghdad Bob interviews, claiming that Trump can fire whomever he likes whenever he likes and attempting to swat down concerns that Trump just fired the man investigating him.

She won't even acknowledge that people around the POTUS are being investigated.

Cooper, like probably many in the media, rolls his eyes hard at Conway's dogged denial that anything is wrong here ...

Pay For Gays: Salaries Of Top TV Stars Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-05 at 10.26.45 AMFrom lower L, clockwise: Roberts via ABC, Cyrus via NBC, Parsons via CBS, DeGeneres via Telepictures, Shepard via Fox, Cooper via CNN.

Some of these estimated salaries of top TV stars are pretty mind-blowing. I knew Judy Sheindlin made a bundle, but $47M a year?

And when it comes to episodic TV, how'd you like to knock down $1M per episode to do the backbreaking work Kaley Cuoco does on Big Bang Theory?

Variety's full list is here.

LGBTQ-related talent is well-represented, with two of us among the top-paid people in entertainment:
