I DON’T EVEN KNOW. I DIDN’T START IT WITH LINDSEY GRAHAM. HE’S REGISTERED AT 0 IN THE POLL. RICK PERRY, IN MY OFFICE A COUPLE YEARS AGO, SHAKING MY HAND LOOKING FOR MONEY AND LOOKING FOR SUPPORT. PEOPLE WILL SAY, I CALL IT HYPOCRITE. THEY’RE SAYING HORRIBLE THINGS. LIKE I DON’T KNOW THESE PEOPLE. THEY’RE SAYING THESE, NOW AM I SUPPOSED TO, YOU KNOW, JUST SAY IT IS OKAY FOR THEM TO SAY. ONE GUY, I GUESS ITS WAS LINDSEY GRAHAM CALLED ME A JACKASS. AM I SUPPOSE TO SAY IT’S OKAY. I’M CALLED A JACKASS. YOU HAVE TO FIGHT BACK. THE COUNTRY HAS TO FIGHT BACK. EVERYONE IS PUSHING OUR COUNTRY AROUND. WE CAN’T ALLOW THAT.>>IS IT PRESIDENTIAL? TO GIVE OUT A PERSONAL PHONE NUMBER?>>THAT WAS A LONG STORY. YOU HAVE TO SEE THE WHOLE STORY THE WAY IT MORPHED.

STARTS HITTING ME YEARS LATER. I HAPPENED TO HAVE THIS CRAZY PHONE NUMBER. I SAID THIS GUY WAS OVER HERE AND ACTUALLY, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, THE ROOM WAS PACKED, STANDING ROOM ONLY, IN FACT THEY HAD, OTHER THELTATERS, OVERFLOW CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION. THE PLACE WENT WILD. WE ALL HAD A GOOD TIME.>>IS THAT PRESIDENTIAL?>>I THINK SO.>>I WAS HIT BY SOMEBODY UNFAIRLY. I WAS CALLED NAMES BY SOMEBODY.

RIGHT NOW I AM FIGHT. I AM ONE IN THE POLLS BY FAR. I’M BEGING ATTACKED. ON ALL SIDE. EXCUSE ME. IN MY OPINION. THIS ISN’T THE SAME THING. IN MY OPINION WHEN ATTACKED YOU HAVE TO — YOU KNOW, DEFEND, AND ATTACK BACK. OKAY. I’M BEING ATTACKED BY CERTAIN PEOPLE. ACTUALLY, BUSH, I THINK IS PROBABLY A NICE GUY. I DON’T THINK HE HAS THE TEMPERAMENT. BY THAT, HE IS A NICE GUY. BUT HE DOESN’T HAVE THE TEMPERAMENT. HE IS TOO LOW KEY. HE IS TOO LAID BACK. CAN YOU IMAGINE BUSH NEGOTIATING WITH CHINA?

I DON’T THINK SO. I KNOW HER VERY WELL. WHEN I AM IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR. I AM A BUSINESSMAN. I LIKE EVERYBODY. I HAVE TO DEAL WITH THESE PEOPLE.

  1. Listen "Mr.Trump" the USA is not Berlin that would be unfair to people to build that stupid wall on the border

  2. He is so immature and angry! He is a ticking bomb. He would take the USA to war every 5 minutes. The country would be in chaos. Wow!

  3. The guy literally has the media by the balls, he's using the media's sensationalism and thereby setting the talking points of the Republican debates. Pure fucking genius. Whether you like him or not he clearly knows what he's doing lmfao

  4. This man is a mess. He admits to being a lobbyist in the past. He admits to supporting both Hiliary Clinton and Rick Perry, because he "was on the other side" and "was doing business with these people". Now, whats changed? Well, he's going to be the president! So as president, he doesn't have to deal with "these people"? What does he think presidency is? A tyranny? A dictatorship? Does he think he will have the power to do what he wants, where he wants? Does he think he doesn't have to play nice anymore? 

    Then he goes on about how the whole world hates us. Lol… His mouth in the presidency office will surely solve this problem!

  5. Can we please just take that thing in the WH out and sterilize it about 10x and move TRUMP in NOW!! All the other candidates are like a joke compared to him!

  6. Right now Trump is a war machine, he needs to be to survive pre election. Once he wins he will go into business man mode. You'll be surprised how little you'll hear from him once he's working.

  7. Trump ALL THE FUCKING WAY!!! Look at how this idiot Anderson focuses so much on "feelings" and "words" and "is that presidential." WHAT A FUCKING FAG. No one gives a shit about this media cooked up bullshit about being politically correct. FUCK OFF.

  8. TRUMP IS AMERICA'S, UNTOUCHABLE.  YOU CAN'T BRIBE HIM, HE SPEAKS THE TRUTH, HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, AND HE HAS DONE MOST IT HIMSELF.  HE LAUGHS AT THE LYING SCUM FROM CNN, ABC, CBS, AP AND MSNBC.  ALL LEFT WING LYING NEWS IS TOTALLY FUCKED.  PUT HIM UP AGAINST OBAMA, AND TRUMP WILL EAT HIM ALIVE. TRUMP IS FOOR WORKING AMERICA, TRUMP IS FOR AMERICAN FREEDOM, TRUMP IS AGAINST CORRUPT GOVERNMENT AND CORRUPT NEWS MEDIA, TRUMP WILL GIVE THE AMERICAN FAMILY, THE AMERICAN DREAM BACK.

  9. I view Trump kind of like J R Ewing on Dallas. Knows how to play the game and always entertaining. If i had a choice i would rather have him running things rather than his brother or Cliff Barnes. I finally understand what he was trying to say about Mexican immigration. The Mexican government has a long history of corruption. I do think they would rather have criminals and the lower class in the US. They can accomplish this by doing nothing. And US politicians are too concerned about the hispanic vote to take a strong stance against it. They know that. Trumps statement was taken too general. At least he answers the questions just as Bernie Sanders. Just have the feeling he and Sanders are running for totally different reasons than the others. Hope both these two guys stay in a long time and expose the remaining contenders who are not in it for personal views but only in it for the views of those big contributors of their campaigns.

  10. Trump 2016 !!!
    This will go down in history as the exponential turning point of the US economy.
    No Great Depression this century. Whoo Hoo!!!

  11. NOBODY LIKES YOU ANDERSON COOPER. WE ALL KNOW YOU'RE FULL OF SHIT YOU AIN'T FOOLING ANYONE YOU'RE JUST A MANIPULATIVE PARASITE IN THIS WORLD

  12. Can't wait to see US lead by Trump.  Respect, Donald Trump.   And hey Anderson, you look like a spoiled kid messing and disrespecting his dad. Behave kid.

  13. Well, he's right about the special interest groups, lobbyists, and politicians. Bernie Sanders has been saying it for awhile but I'm glad to hear Trump step up and say something that the average citizen is unaware to the extent of this major problem. Never thought I'd say this but thank you Trump for saying that.

  14. "I was on the other side, I was a businessman."

    Donald Trump, I believe you will still be a businessman after you become the President.

  15. I hated trump but now I love him cuz he doesn't give two fucks. It's so refreshing to see a "non-politician" being received well. I'm a registered independent and I don't know who I will vote for yet, but Trump is doing the best so far.

  16. NO MORE POLITICIANS NO MORE LAW MAKERS, NOW THE LOBBY HIMSELF WANTS TO RUN THE GAME…THE CAUSE OF THE MESS IS SAYING THAT HE CAN FIX HIS OWN SHIT…

  17. Try as they like to wrap Trump up in their web of tangled BULLSHIT the CNN SPIDERS just cannot do it! Trump just keeps shoving their crap right back on them! They hate the fact Trump cannot be bought! When will Cooper realise that Trump is far more intelligent than him! What a joke Cooper makes himself out to be. He must have a thing for Trump! Yea that is it Cooper is Hot for Trump! President of the USA DONALD TRUMP!

  18. I can only say this that we are FUCKING ORGANIZING LIKE CRAZY here in EUROPE to make sure that we FUCKING FIGHT DONALD TRUMP to fucking never win any election!!! He is the worst fucking danger to GLOBAL TOLERANCE, PEACE and SOCIAL COHESION. 

    If this fucking HATER wins in the USA there is a fucking danger that it will even effect European politics. SO ALL WE FUCKING SCRAMBLE NOW, ALL EUROPEAN ANTI-RACISTS, ANTI-FASCIST PROGRESSIVES, ANTI-HOMOPHOBES, ANTI-ISLAMOPHOBES, FREE PEOPLE – FREE BORDERS PEOPLE, PEACE MOVEMENT, SEXUAL MINORITIES, ETHNIC MINORITIES, LABOUR UNIONS, PEOPLE AGANST FUCKNG OPPRESSION AGAINST SEXUAL MINORITIES BY CHRISTARDS!!

    Basically it is every fucking good and descent people/organizations in Europe against the FUCKING CONSERVATARDS in the fucking AmeriKKKa!!!!!

    Whole FUCKING PRESS and ACADEMIA in EUROPE is with us, because we have the FACTS and MORAL DECENCY on our side WHILE YOU HAVE UGLY HATE ON UR SIDE!!!!

    SMASH THE FUCKING NEO-CON CHRISTARD HATE!!! THROW THESE FUCKING BASTARDS INTO CAMPS AND EDUCATE THEM TO ACCEPT OTHER PPL AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION, ETHNIC MINORITIES ETC!!! WHITES WILL FINALLY FUCKNG BE IN MINORITY SO WE FINALLY CAN HAVE SEXUAL FREEDOM AND EXPERIMENTATION AND DIVE INTO THE ABYSS OF SEXUAL PLEASURE.

    SMASH THE FUCKING HATERS!!! BORDERS ARE NEOCOLONIALISM HATE!!! NO HUMAN IS ILLEGAL!!! FUCK WHITE CHRISTARDS AND HUNT THEM DOWN SO WE FINALLY CAN HAVE SOME  FUCKING PEACE AND TOLERANCE HERE!!! WE HAVE ONLY ONE PLANET!!!!!

  19. I am an Evangelical Christian fundamentalist and Donald Trump is more or less the only candidate that openly said that we must support and protect Christians in the Middle East, and that we have an obligation to do so because they are our people. 

    No born-again Christian believes that Donald Trump is born-again, but he has the heart on the right place, and God can use every man. As a Europen, I can see that USA is fundamentally a Christian nation in every way, so when Donald Trump is loving America and fight for America, he will fight for Christianity as well. Much more than other open-border, wishy washy politicians that claim to be devout Christians, but are luke-warm or just hypocrites.

  20. CNN, Cooper, the mainstream media – nobody believes what they report, since the internet allows us to see the source material and expose their lies.

  21. The media is doing everything they can to try and trip up Trump for any little thing, it is so sickening. They cut him off, put horrible spin on everything, and try to deny all of the support he has, all the while giving the easiest of questions and pandering to the candidates that they like. I love how Trump can talk without a teleprompter and refute everyone based on facts, these people are scared. God bless.

  22. I am voting for Trump. I disagree with him on Iraq. Saddam and his sons were torturing people, and killing hundred of thousands of people. Maybe even million of people. Anyway, how can anyone with a soul can say, we should've never went into Iraq? Saddam and his two sons are in hell where they belong. The reason we have isis is because of Obama.

  23. American media is like Pravda, bought and sold by the democrat and republican machines. The dem and repub media has decided that Trump must be stopped because he's not part of the established political order and the media on both sides is falling over itself trying to portray trump as negative as possible. Every day, literally EVERY DAY, there is a prominent photo of trump taken mid-speech with his mouth contorted trying to make him look maniacal. the way the media tries to control politics would be funny if it wasn't so scary.

  24. Who's the cat that won't cop out
    When the PC police are all about
    (Trump!)
    Right on
    You see this cat Trump is a bad mother
    (Shut your mouth)
    But I'm talkin' about Trump
    (Then we can dig it)
    He's a complicated man
    But no one in the media understands him
    Cool cat
    Trump 2016

  25. Anderson does not know how to interview a man who is self sufficient and intelligent, sorry but most reporters like him are nothing but puppets lol! Mr. Trump has enough guts to tell even to this little man reporter to wait let me talk, Anderson is a real joke!

  26. Crazy that the media cannot see that Trump's campaign is designed to pull votes away from the GOP when he switches to independent. Probably why Hilary Clinton wiped that email server clean, most likely that's where they were planning the whole thing.

  27. Just wonder if Trump is for gun control , haven't heard his view on that yet , someone needs to ask Trump

  28. GO TRUMP!

    TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!!! BLACKS, LIBERALS AND MUSLIMS HAVE DESTROYED WHAT OUR ANCESTORS HAVE WORKED FOR!!!!

  29. How can anyone agree with this guy?? His entire argument is based of facts he made up. He says there are to many people sneaking in from Mexico raping people, when it's just that the guards are to busy raping Latino women. It is just a plain fact that there are the least amount of crimes a long the border. His only argument is "you're wrong".

  30. This guy is the US equivalent to Farage in the UK….Look what happened to him. But now must Brits wish they had voted for Farage. So vote Trump.

  31. Donald Trump is sitting for an interview.
    In the dominant foreground banner, In bold type and upper case, CNN has sequenced the words and phrases, "Hated", "Negative" "Mess" "Lobbyists" "Money" "Executives" "I couldn't care less" "Trump defends" "he'll change his tone" "attacked" "gets along with Iran" "Stupid thing" etc. They are attempting to leave a poisoned bold print impression of their antagonist, in this case Trump. Cooper is a trembling puppy doing what he has been scolded to do.

  32. If you want 4 more years of race-baiting & poverty pimping – vote Democrats.
    If you want a better job and can handle non-PC comments – vote for Trump.

  33. Alright CNN I know you dont want to hide your logo and the headline at the bottom but can we get the CC away from their faces

  34. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/261283-ex-cia-chief-fear-for-environment-stays-us-hand-on-isis-oil-wells

    View this site and tell me who do we believe. I kinda believe the CIA director that was in charge at the time. Just saying if you are going to fact check someone make sure you do your research. A simple google check can do wonders..
