Blagojevich said he was a political prisoner and now wants to reform the criminal justice system. Cooper shut him down.

The former Illinois governor said he was a political prisoner and demanded that Cooper help him reform the criminal justice system. The CNN host shut him...

February 22, 2020 Blagojevich was the Democratic governor of Illinois from 2003 to 2009, when he was sentenced to 14 years in prison for corruption. He attempted to sell the former U.S. Senate seat of newly elected President Barack Obama through his power as governor to appoint someone. When Blagojevich’s corruption came to light, the Illinois House of Representatives voted to impeach him and in 2009 voted to ban him from holding any political office in the state. Blagojevich attempted to use his interview with Cooper to defend his reputation and redirect the attention to corruption in the criminal justice system. “If you were to ask Nelson Mandela whether he thought the process was fair back in the early ’60s in South Africa, he would say what I’m saying today,” Blagojevich told Cooper. Later, he urged Cooper to take action: “I hope one day maybe you’ll join me in the fight to reform our criminal justice system and actually do something about the problem of over-sentencing Blacks and Latinos. I learned that when I was there [in prison].” Cooper quickly shot him down: “What’s sad is that you hadn’t actually learned that when you mattered ― when you actually were the governor.” RELATED...

thank you Anderson - you stopped the bull shit and confronted him with the truth. no confusion, no gaslighting, just the facts WISH YOU COULD INTERVIEW-TRUMP Cooper some people are slow learners like Trump or I think Trump is to old to very be a slow learner. You're a big person went you can say I was wrong and went I work if I did anything wrong I said I did it.

What Cooper wanted to do so bad. 👏👏 Anderson! You were awesome All media should treat past criminals like Blagojevich that haven't learned from their criminal acts with contempt as has Cooper. Mostly stop giving these fool corrupt politicians a platform. Who cares what he thinks or says. He was found guilty

I’m in IL... only that small group at Rod’s house cared. Even IL Congress Republicans told Trump not to do it. Rod held millions for a children’s hosp for 50k campaign donation. Remember who else held $ for political gain? Rod’s now a felon. Don’t give him air time. I thought Leftists were about second chances, and not continually judging on a person’s past. Oh, and I thought Leftists were against judging.

No one wants to see him in news reports ever again. Anderson Cooper enjoys tearing down his interviewees to often. That’s the best interview I’ve seen in years. This guy has nothing worthwhile to say but lies. Thanks Anderson andersoncooper for telling it like it is without fluff!

Pete Buttigieg praises Denmark as best place to live the American Dream during debate'We're not even in the top ten,' former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg said. But he doesn't want policies as progressive as Denmark's....whatever. Sanders is the only one with policies anywhere near resembling the Social Democracy European countries enjoy. That is correct, Pete....but most Trump voters have never been out of their backward county, so how would they know? Not to mention, most couldn't find Denmark, or Sweden or even Canada on a map! America is way down the list of best places to live.
