Anderson Cooper Takes On Homophobic FL AG Pam Bondi

Anderson Cooper had Florida's Attorney General, Pam Bondi, on to discuss the possibility that people may use the tragedy in Orlando to set up fake funding sites. The interview quickly turned to Pam Bondi's hypocrisy, as she has fought strongly against the rights of LGBTQ people in Florida.



Pam Bondi tried to point out that she is a champion of LGBTQ rights and even has a gay friend posted rainbow hands on her website. Multiple sites (Slate, Esquire, ThinkProgress) mention finding no evidence of said hands.

Since the interview, Anderson Cooper has provided receipts to show that, despite Pam Bondi's claims that the interview was only supposed to be about innocent people being scammed, she and her people only mentioned discussing that seconds before going on air and the purpose of the interview was open and had no specific topic.

Bondi also has made news in recent weeks after it came out that she declined to investigate Trump University after Donald Trump donated $25,000 to her.
