Cooper finds the entire situation "sickening." And that's putting it nicely. Dr. Phil, meanwhile, appeared to discuss what may have been going through Clementi's head as the story unfolded.
"This wasn't someone that just said, 'This is a gay classmate of mine,'" explained the doctor.
"This is someone that took a video of someone in an intimate act.
Doesn't matter whether it was a gay sex act, a straight — it doesn't
matter. I mean, that would be a horrible experience for anyone. And —
and to do that can be really devastating to a person psychologically."
Watch Cooper and Dr. Phil's exchange, AFTER THE JUMP…
Tonight CNN’s Anderson Cooper discussed the “all faggots must die” comment left by a Sen. Saxby Chambliss staffer here on JMG, bringing on Rep. Jared Polis and Log Cabin head R. Clarke Cooper. (The same pair discussed the issue on MSNBC’s Hardball yesterday.) Tonight’s conversation focused more on the delay in identifying the culprit, although LCR’s Cooper once again attempted to derail the issue by launching into an attack on Obama over DADT.
UNRELATED: CNN really has a problem with my name, this is the third mention in as many weeks in which they get it wrong. Whatevs.
Texas state Rep. Debbie Riddle and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) are convinced that foreign women are coming to the U.S. to have babies in order to get them citizenship, so the babies can then be trained as terrorists against the U.S. Neither have any solid evidence, but that doesn't stop them from being very, very convinced, and Anderson Cooper bears the brunt of their wingnuttery.
