Anderson Cooper On Pam Bondi: SHE'S EITHER MISTAKEN, OR SHE'S NOT TELLING THE TRUTH Comments (0)

Florida A.G. Pam Bondi was ever-so-pissed when Anderson Cooper dogged her over the question of whether she—in arguing to defend her state's position against marriage equality—she used language that accused LGBT people of harming Florida. She denied it, even though the record shows she did just that. 

Cooper's point was clear: How can she now decry violence against LGBT people when she has professionally smeared us in the course of her duties?

Bondi pushed back, but Cooper isn't having it, saying:

But today, the Attorney General went on a radio show and made some claims about our interview that are just factually incorrect. Now, she's either mistaken, or she's not telling the truth.

In a video, Cooper held up all of his office's pre-interview notes, stressing that Bondi's claim that she only went on CNN to talk about scams in the wake of the mass shooting is bogus:

...I chose to ask her about comments she herself publicly has made on numerous other television-show appearances in just the last few days ... comments which seemed contradictory to her record in dealing with gays and lesbians in [Florida].

Cooper also zinged Bondi for lying in claiming that CNN edited out the beginning of her interview—pointing out that it aired live.

When Bondi absurdly accused Cooper of conducting an angry interview that ginned up hate and mistrust in her office, Cooper's expression said it all (see pic at top of this post). To that, he said:

I don't know Pam Bondi, personally. She seems like a nice person, actually. I don't think she has hate in her heart. But what I think doesn't matter—it's my job to hold people accountable, and if on Sunday a politician is talking about love and embracing quote our LGBT community, I don't think it's unfair to look at their record and see if they have actually ever spoken publicly that way before, which I've never heard her say. The fact is, Attorney General Bondi signed off on a 2014 federal court brief that claimed married gay people would quote impose significant public harm—harm. She spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers money—gay and straight taxpayers' money—trying to keep gays and lesbians from getting the right to marry ... [T]he very right which allows gay spouses to bury their dead loves ones, that's a right that would not exist if Ms. Bondi had had her way. I think it's fair to ask her about that, there is an irony in that.

Cooper ends by saying he's seen love and unity among the Orlando LGBT community, not the hate Bondi claims she is receiving via e-mail. Poor lady, getting mean e-mail messages, and yet she didn't flinch when robustly trying to deny rights to the LGBT people in her state and was only too happy to say married gay people would harm Florida.

Trump Was For Invading Iraq Before He Was Against It Comments (0)

I made this statement on my blog recently and was rightfully checked on it, as there was no evidence Trump had said he was for invading Iraq, just that he was against it about 18 months after the fact.

Now, an audio interview from 2002 reveals that Trump was, if hesitantly, on the record as being for invading Iraq, making his statements about the invasion being a YUGE mistake he wouldn't have made, untrue.

Trump's already been asked about this, and his excuse is he was not a politician when he said it:

Anderson Cooper's Worst Moment Ever On TV? Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-01-08 at 11.28.56 AM

I like Anderson Cooper—a lot. I think he's an amazingly impressive individual.

But nobody is perfect, as he nimbly demonstrated at last night's town hall on gun control. Following is the moment when he inexplicably seemed to lend credence to conspiracy theories that President Obama wants to take away everyone's guns and impose martial law. He seems sheepish as he says what he says, but I would hope that by today he realizes just how ridiculous this exchange was. President Obama's incredulity is palpable ...
