  • >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY, WE'RE BACK WITH OUR FRIEND

  • ANDERSON COOPER.

  • YOU HAVE SEEN A LOT OF CATASTROPHES AND A LOT OF

  • TRAGEDY AROUND THE WORLD, COVERING IT FOR THE NEWS.

  • HOW DO YOU COMPARE -- IN WHAT WAYS IS THIS SIMILAR OR

  • DIFFERENT THAN THE DIFFERENT CATASTROPHES YOU'VE SEEN

  • HAPPENING AROUND THE WORLD?

  • >> I'M ALWAYS HESITANT TO SORT OF PAIR HUMAN SUFFERING FOR

  • PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING THROUGH IT, THIS IS THE WORST THING --

  • >> Stephen: WELL, THERE'S SCALE AND REACTION AND THE

  • ACTION YOU CAN TAKE TO MITIGATE.

  • AND SOME THINGS YOU CAN, IT IS MERELY ENDURING IT.

  • >> THE SCALE OF THIS IS BEYOND ANYTHING ANY OF US HAVE EVER

  • SEEN BEFORE.

  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS AFFECTED THE ENTIRE GLOBE AND

  • HAD THE AFFECTS -- NOT ONLY THE HUMAN AFFECTS OF LOSS BUT THE

  • SOCIETAL EFFECTS, THE ECONOMIC EFFECTS, THE DEVASTATION, ALL OF

  • THAT, IT'S JUST UNPRECEDENTED, OBVIOUSLY.

  • AND I THINK PART OF THE -- TO ME, THERE'S BEEN KIND OF A

  • DISCONNECT BECAUSE ESPECIALLY EARLY ON, THERE WEREN'T CAMERAS

  • IN HOSPITAL ROOMS OR, YOU KNOW, FAMILY MEMBERS COULDN'T SEE

  • THEIR LOVED ONES AT THE END AND CAMERAS WEREN'T IN THE EMERGENCY

  • ROOM, SO YOU DIDN'T LIKELY -- YOU KNOW, YOU KNEW THIS BATTLE

  • THAT WAS HAPPENING BIND THE WALLS OF THE HOSPITAL BUT YOU

  • DIDN'T ACTUALLY REALLY SEE IT, UNLIKE IN HURRICANE KATRINA OR

  • THE EARTHQUAKE IN HAITI WHERE IT WAS ALL AROUND AND, YOU KNOW,

  • BECAUSE OF CAMERAS, EVERYBODY FELT THEY WERE THERE AND THEY

  • WERE WITNESSING IT.

  • SO I THINK THAT WAS -- AND I THINK THAT CONTINUES TO BE PART

  • OF YOU DON'T SEE THE LOSS -- YOU KNOW, WE TRIED TO BRING THE

  • NAMES OF PEOPLE AND INTRODUCE EVERYBODY TO PEOPLE WHOSE LIVES

  • HAVE BEEN TAKEN.

  • BUT I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE DIFFICULTIES IN THIS, OF SORT OF

  • SEEING IT UP CLOSE.

  • WE DON'T REALLY SEE IT.

  • WE'RE NOT ON THE FRONT LINE IN THAT SENSE, AND THAT'S, I THINK,

  • YOU KNOW, I THINK THAT'S ONE OF THE HARD THINGS ABOUT TRYING TO

  • REPORT ON THIS.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE MORE CHALLENGING ASPECTS OF

  • REPORTING ON THIS?

  • >> LOOK, I MEAN, YOU KNOW, JUST -- IT'S ONE THING TO --

  • FIRST OF ALL, THIS IS NOT SOME STORY.

  • I MEAN, THIS IS LIFE AND DEATH.

  • THIS IS AS SERIOUS AS IT GETS, AND IT'S MORE IMPORTANT THAN

  • EVER BEFORE THAT THINGS BE TRUE AND ACCURATE AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S

  • WHY I'M NOT -- ONE OF THE REASONS, YOU KNOW, I'M NOT

  • TAKING TIME OFF.

  • THANKFULLY I CAN DO WORK FROM HOME AND STUFF, BUT I FEEL LIKE

  • THIS IS AN EXTRAORDINARY TIME TO BE IN THIS BUSINESS AS A

  • REPORTER AND TO BE ABLE TO TRY TO HELP INFORM PEOPLE AND GIVE

  • PEOPLE FACTS.

  • RIGHT NOW, FACTS AND SCIENCE AND TRUTH, IT IS THE DIFFERENCE

  • BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH FOR MANY PEOPLE.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, WHERE ARE YOU GETTING THOSE?

  • BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE, MANY NEWS ORGANIZATIONS

  • HAVE CURTAILED THEIR FOLLOWING OF THE PRESIDENT'S PRESS

  • BRIEFINGS WHEN HE USED TO DO THEM BECAUSE THEY FELT THEY

  • WEREN'T GETTING THE STRAIGHT DOPE FROM THE PRESIDENT, IT WAS

  • MORE POLITICAL FAN INFORMATIVE.

  • SO WHERE IS YOUR INFORMATION COMING FROM NOW, PRIMARILY?

  • >> LOOK, I THINK WE DO REPORTING, AND THERE'S A LOT OF

  • GOOD PEOPLE DOING A LOT OF GOOD REPORTING, AND I THINK THAT'S

  • ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THE WAY THIS HAS BEEN HANDLED IS,

  • SUDDENLY, EVERYTHING BECAME FUNNELED THROUGH, YOU KNOW, THE

  • WHITE HOUSE, THE VICE PRESIDENT'S OFFICE, AND YOU

  • HAVE THESE CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE BRIEFINGS THAT STARTED

  • OFF, YOU KNOW, YES, WITH VICE PRESIDENT PENCE, YOU KNOW,

  • CONSTANTLY SAYING EVERYTHING -- YOU KNOW, STARTING THE SENTENCE

  • WITH, AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT, YOU KNOW, HE KNEW

  • BETTER THAN TO, YOU KNOW, MAKE HIMSELF -- EVERYTHING WAS DONE

  • AT THE DIRECTION OF THE PRESIDENT SO HE COULD STAY IN

  • THE PRESIDENT'S GOOD GRACES, BUT YOU AT LEAST HEARD FROM THE

  • SCIENTISTS, AND SUDDENLY THE PRESIDENT REALIZED, WELL, I

  • SHOULD GET IN ON THESE, THESE ARE POPULAR, AND THE SCIENTISTS

  • ARE GETTING -- THE NUMBERS ARE GOING UP, PEOPLE ARE RESPECTING

  • THEM, HE WANTS TO GET IN ON IT, SO HE HAS HIJACKED THESE

  • CORONAVIRUS TASK FORCE BRIEFINGS.

  • YOU KNOW, I WATCHED THEM A AS A CITIZEN WAITING FOR THE

  • SCIENTISTS TO COME ON TO ACTUALLY SAY SOMETHING, AND IT'S

  • LARGELY THE PRESIDENT USING IT AS A MINI-CAM PAIN RALLY, A -- I

  • DON'T KNOW WHAT HE ACTUALLY CONSIDERS IT, AND SAYING THINGS

  • WHICH ARE DEMONSTRABLY FALSE AND RWRITING HISTORY ABOUT HIS

  • ADMINISTRATION'S RESPONSE AND, AT THE SAME TIME, GIVING OUT

  • BOGUS MEDICAL INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, WITH THE IDEA OF DOING

  • STUDIES, INJECTING PEOPLE WITH DISINFECTANTS IS -- I MEAN, YOU

  • COULDN'T MAKE THAT UP THAT A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

  • WOULD ACTUALLY SUGGEST THAT, AND JUST THINK OF IT, MUSE OUT LOUD

  • ABOUT IT AND HAVE A GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL SORT OF NOD HIS HEAD

  • AND SAY WE'LL TRY TO FIND THE RIGHT PEOPLE FOR THAT OR THE

  • PEOPLE WHO CAN FIGURE THAT OUT.

  • YEAH.

  • I MEAN, YOU SEE THE PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT LIBERATE MICHIGAN.

  • YOU KNOW, HOW ABOUT LIBERATING THE SCIENTISTS, LETTING THE

  • C.D.C. HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE OF THEIR OWN EVERY DAY OR THE

  • NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH, JUST LIBERATE THE SCIENTISTS TO

  • JUST SPEAK TRUTH.

  • SCIENCE WILL SAVE US.

  • >> Stephen: ANDERSON, WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THE RUMORS THAT YOU

  • AND YOURER PAST INJECTED BLEACH AND THAT'S WHY YOU'RE

  • MONOCHROMATIC.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> THAT IS NOT TRUE.

  • >> Stephen: NO?

  • WELL, ONLY TIME WILL TELL.

  • CAN I SEE THE HAIRCUT YOU GAVE YOURSELF?

  • HAS IT GOTTEN BETTER?

  • >> NO, IT'S HEALED OVER.

  • >> Stephen: YES?

  • YEAH, THAT WAS KIND OF -- >> Stephen: IT DID?

  • I'LL BRIEFLY TELL YOU THE STORY.

  • I GOT MY SECOND D.M. -- THIS HAS ONLY HAPPENED TWICE -- FROM A

  • LADY WHO SAID, HEY, THIS IS A DEMOCRAT M. ON INSTAGRAM AND SHE

  • SAID I'M REACHING OUT BECAUSE MY DAUGHTERS HAS ALBINISM AS DO

  • OTHER PEOPLE AND I'M REACHING OUT TO GET INSPIRATION.

  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO RESPOND, AND LITERALLY, I PROMISE YOU,

  • THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS HAPPENED, I WAS, LIKE, I MEAN I

  • CAN'T -- I'M NOT ALBINO, NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH

  • THAT.

  • AND PEOPLE WITH ALBINOISM ARE TREATED TERRIBLY IN MANY

  • SOCIETIES SO I HAVE GREAT COMPASSION FOR THE CONDITION,

  • BUT I'M JUST LIKE A MIDDLE-AGE WHITE GUY WHO'S REALLY PALE AND

  • TRANSLUCENT AS YOU POINTED OUT, SO I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO RESPOND

  • TO HER BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY, WELL, I'M NOT AN ALBINO

  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE IT SEEM THERE WAS ANYTHING WRONG

  • WITH THAT BUT AT THE SAME TIME I DIDN'T WANT TO CLAIM MEMBERSHIP

  • IN THE ALBINO COMMUNITY BECAUSE I WOULD BE #METOO'D IN THE

  • ALBINO COMMUNITY A FEW YEARS FROM NOW AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW

  • TO RESPOND.

  • I FEEL TERRIBLE.

  • >> Stephen: NOW SHE'LL KNOW.

  • I'M SORRY.

  • >> Stephen: WE'LL TAKE A BREAK.

  • BACK WITH MORE MR. SANDERSEN COOPER.
