Pope ‘has awfully big wall’

Interview

In an interview with CNN’s Cooper, Trump says the Pope’s comments were probably overblown by the media.

I didn’t think it was a good thing for him to say, frankly. I don’t like fighting with the Pope. I don’t think this is a fight…I think it was probably a little bit nicer statement than was reported by you folks in the media. Because after I read it, it was a little bit softer…I think that he heard one side of the story, which is probably by the Mexican government…But the bottom line is we’ve got to have a border, we’ve got to have security. We have tremendous illegal immigration in the country. He also talked about [how] having a wall is not Christian. And he’s got an awfully big wall at the Vatican, I will tell you.

Interview

In a an interview with Cooper, Griffin discusses her friendship with Joan Rivers, and recalls advice she gave her:

When you are a woman in this business, you have to hold on until your knuckles are white and they chop your fingers off. Then you hold on by your wrist, then you hold on by your elbows and you never let go.

AC 360 interview

Interview

Brown’s parents, McSpadden and Brown Sr. speak with Cooper about the tragic shooting death of their son. They confirm their confidence with the Ferguson justice system, voice their opinions on a grand jury decision and involving the Federal government. McSpadden:

Even if this hadn’t happened people ridicule each other anyway, but he was a teenager, he was growing up, he was only 18. He had a chance to make a mistake and correct it just like the officer, he had a choice and the officer chose the wrong one. Was it really necessary…No. My son was only 18, only 18.

Anderson Cooper interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Cooper during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his interview with Donald Sterling.

He says this is not who he is. He says he’s taken responsibility for it. A few sentences later, he’s also pointing the finger at this woman, V. Stiviano, saying he was kind of goaded into making these comments that he hasn’t said anything like this in the past. There a lot of people obviously who will disagree with him.
