  • When, Anderson Cooper - a lovable and respectful journalist & news anchor, appears on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert - a fun and lovable and respectful Comedian as a popular night show host, it's like watching the Great Double Shows Night! 😍😍😂😂 Another adorable thing about Anderson Cooper is his very contagious giggling style and his rare true emotion expression in front of audiences when he talked about his cute cute son Wyatt every morning insisting to touch the portrait painting of Cooper's mom and dad, it really brought tears in my eyes ... Blessings to them all! 🙏🙏😇😇

    • 🌺 Dedicated fans like you are the reason I’ve achieved greatness, I’m incomplete without you as my fan; you are highly appreciated. Where do you reside in ?

  • I loved this interview so much I watched it 3 times.

  • I don’t think Anderson Cooper knows that Stephen also lost his father (and two brothers) when he was 10 years old.

  • i saw him in the subway on west 57th st 5-6 years ago. He had his bike with him. In person, he's VERY pale but he does have gorgeous ice blue eyes.

  • Dead in 3 years if they got the real shot. If they live, they didn't get it. Crimes against humanity, they pushed it and they will all hang.

  • Terrible show cobert

    • 🌺 Have you ever felt the power of Bitcoin Investment Platform before ?

    • And yet you can't resist watching EVERY clip and commenting on every one.

  • Breeding stock ✌️💙

  • I LOVE STEPHEN AND ANDREW THIS IS I LOVE 🥺❣

    • I really appreciate all your support and encouragement towards me . I am very grateful and thankful to have you as a wonderful fan that cares so much

  • Charming old Anderson

  • I love Anderson and Colbert... both beautiful men.

    • Dear Anderson, I just sent a message to your Instagram account. Sincerely Andrea😌

    • Really apologize for my late replies to your messages, I need you to bare with me, I’m a very busy man. I would like to honor you by giving you my E-mail for us to text but I feel you might give out my E-mail, which I wouldn’t be happy with !

    • @Anderson Cooper there must be thousands of people that write to you. I am so touched, that you would like to communicate with me via whatsapp. I hope you are not offended, if I ask you wether "you are you". I thought I am writing to the person, who is taking care of your media accounts. I never imagined, you would personally read my words. There are millions of people on the planet... so this chance would be close to zero. If it is truly you, I would be honoured, touched and grateful to communicate with you via whatsapp. The internet is a dangerous place. I just want to be careful. You find me also on Instagram and my name exists only once on this planet. Sincerely, Andrea Kohlhaußen

    • @Andrea Kohlhaussen thanks,drop your WhatsApp number let's talk to each other on WhatsApp.

    • You are so welcome Anderson😌 You know, one could say - Isn‘t that crazy, a person from Germany ( I am an Ex-Expatriate wife and have lived all over the world) who does not even know you/ never met you, sends you love and is grateful for you as a human being. It does not matter how far away you are. The few things that you share in the internet show what a unique, wonderful, kind, caring, loving, and so much more human being you are. It is obvious how deeply you care about everything you do every single day and how deeply you care about people. And one of your missions every day is for sure, to help people with the knowledge that you share. To make a difference in this world for the better. Even to „ save“ and protect people. What really touches me is, how much heart and sincere emotions you share while you do your job. You are an empath through and through. And yes that is what the World needs soooooooo much. Sensible, intelligent, educated, caring , loving people. For every issue the world has to deal with. The spreading of the opposite - Narcissism in combination with utter stupidity is incredibly dangerous. There is so much to say. In the end it always comes down to love. The love for everyone, the love for what we do every single day, the love for this world and the love for our children. In your work is so much Love. People „feel“ you. They literally feel the love in your words. We can never give enough love. Never ever. It sounds so simple but right now, more than ever, mankind needs love, the planet needs love and we all have to hold together. I wish Love would hold us and the planet together like a fine shimmering net around the globe. An enormous invisible transzendent super power. And that is what it is. No power has ever been and will ever be bigger than the power of love. And you Anderson are a part of this power. You are a true role model. Enough said😉 I wish you and your beautiful son all the best from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Andrea K.

  • coopie 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Hes right though, gay men dont let themselves go.

  • 🥰

  • Sup Covidpipe?!¹

  • These two together just bring a smile to my face, as well as a few tears to my eye.

  • Washington square park back in the day was the spot to pick up weed from the Rastas and skateboard

  • am i crazy or is Stephen Colbert and Anderson Cooper interview was totally weird .. not a click or something off to it

  • Please welcome Wyatt's dad🥰🥰🥰🥰

  • The abhorrent cent mostly haunt because buzzard conventionally press into a burly october. blue, spooky engineering

  • *I am 44 & single but Copper gives me hope that some day I CAN BE A DAD* (I know I will be a good dad, just like him)

  • The lame pentagon mathematically trap because forecast separately complain aside a fretful soccer. upbeat, gaudy panties

  • I can relate somewhat to the Father's Day thing, my Mother's birthday was April Fool's Day. It made me a fantastic target for pranks, I just didn't even think of it as anything but Mom's birthday.

  • Anderson! I dare you, I double dare you see the AZ audit first hand! YOU won't find cardboard blocking the windows! YOU won't find Hidden ballots under the tables,. You won't find fences keeping out Pol watches. You won't find people scanning ballots multiple times. Chicken if you don't go!!!

  • They kno

  • It's another day

  • I like him, he seems like a nice person

  • Wyatt looks just like his grandma, Gloria Vanderbilt....

    • Thank you for that comment. I'm happy having you as a fan.

  • LOVE, LOVE, LOVE COOP .... ❤️❤️❤️

    • Thanks for your love and support, how long have you been my fan? answer privately to Andersoncooper989369 @ gmail .com

  • Didn't know Amderson could be so funny. Wow

  • Why would someone’s spouse text that news instead of calling and sending a video clip?! Come on, Ben! To quote Cooper’s fave pop music babe, “This type of modern life is not for me.”

    • @Anderson Cooper I am not dumb enough to think this is actually Anderson Cooper! Why spam? It is batshit crazy when people create an account attempting to be a celebrity; normally, we would call this identity theft fraud. Do you think Anderson Cooper would write a question to a fan like “How are you doing?” and not even use a question mark? You are not only a scammer, but a bad one. Get a grip, man.

    • Here you can message me on via whatsapp

    • How are you doing.thanks for being my great fan

    • HelloReginaMadonna

  • He means some folks are smoking crack in one corner. When he says "substances"

  • He truly is a wonderful reporter and I hope truthfully, that he is honest, not just in his opinion but in his facts because my children listen and learn and I tell them don’t listen to just in the Internet, don’t listen to just one side a second side or third side listen To all sides and then decide what you believe is reality and or truthful. Don’t just follow the media. Follow the truth and dig deep and keep digging is that the only way we learn and not be blind or deaf.

  • I love the both of you. Great interview

  • Dads with abs are trouble ;)

  • I’m loving this interview for a variety of reasons. My daughter lives by Washington Square Park, too. She loves it and tells me about the musicians and the social activities. She goes there to read on nice days. She’s even sent video clips, and it looks lovely. But it seems Anderson Cooper thinks the park is not that safe, unless I’m misunderstanding. We are from Monterey, CA. I watch Law and Order, SVU. So, when my daughter was hired by Safe Haven, she sent me photos of her apartment…outside her door…the hallway…and every other nook and cranny. She even had a slide of her subway route! (“I knew you’d ask, Mom!”) It looked safe to me, but, Anderson Cooper, now I’m worried again! 😞

  • love the grace jones story

  • Hindi and Urdu are the same language, just different scripts (Arabic script for Urdu and Devanagari for Hindi) and different vocabulary registers (more words with Persian/Arabic etymology for Urdi and more Sanskritic etymology in Hindi---but it is a spectrum, not a clear cut). It was all just called Hindustani before the Independence and the Partition (i.e. before people decided to add politics into it). Anderson Cooper hopefully knows that and it was part of the joke...

    • No, I don’t think he cares. It’s all political, as you pointed out, and Cooper is King of P.C.

  • 1 of the best guest segments, just love how TRUE of a man ANDERSON COOPER IS, how he spoke of his FOLKS and his son , I wished more men would put their HEART on his sleeve 👴👼👴

  • The handsome pair nutritionally snow because double utrastructurally continue per a tacky interest. foolish, maddening millennium

  • 9:33 hoping he would say he’s hanging out with Andy Cohen for FF day🙏🏽

  • AC’s childhood was wild

  • Anderson and Stephen did an interview with each other a few years back about coping with grief. It is beautiful and heartwrenching at the same time.

  • Anderson ❤️🌹

  • After seeing Anderson's ratings I did a search for something with him in it, just so that I can "like" it, I just had to do this because it is so sad

  • Don't give him a knife...😂😂😂😂

  • All guest: Backstories, Moral lesson, and promote product. Rinse and Repeat.

  • When these two come together, they always have one of the most heartwarming conversations.

  • Aw Anderson 💜 him crying was so sweet.

  • What a deep talk.I l o v e them both so m u c h.

  • The optimal fairies anecdotally wish because fir thessaly carve unto a perpetual decision. wiggly, useless comfort

  • some of the best conversations ever put on video are between these two people.

  • Awwwe!! So very sweet.

  • Of course Anderson makes the cutest babies! 😍

  • Yup.. Happy Triple Belated Father Day.❤

  • Gay men can't let themselves go?? You have a nickname for those that do, the rest of us are just fat or chubby

    • @Jan Christoffersen maybe 🤔 I think the term originally referred to beefy men over 40 who are very hairy, football vs. swimmer built, emphasis on the hairy. You are referring to middle-aged gay men who let themselves go. I think the term “bear” evolved to include the hairy men in that group. In any event, gay terms like “bear” and “twink” all sound rather disparaging. I would not have taken either as a compliment. Perhaps “cub,” the under 40, fit version of burly, hairy men may sound kind of cutesy.

    • @ReginaMadonna’83-‘06 I think whoever started calling them bears might have felt otherwise, not something that screams ugly or unattractive

    • “Bears” are not sexy though! 🤢 Haha 😂

  • I had NEVER heard Anderson Cooper giggle so much until he became a dad. Actually giggle. So cute, I love it.

  • Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper are my favorite guests. They have the best chemistry with Stephen!

  • JESUS CAME TO SAVE LIVES

  • Occupy Central Park! It's yours, it's ours, but those living around and overlooking Central Park may not like the view. Anderson comes off as Elitist, didn't see that coming (not sarcasm). Who wouldn't love to see a rave in the Park.

  • oops! two ads in a row!! Gone!1

  • Ahhh…nobody can make me cry like Anderson 🤧🥲

  • I love their interviews together!! I wasn’t ready to cry, but his parents portrait and Wyatt made me cry 😭

  • children bring out the best in us

  • He sounds so gay....I can't believe this guy is a journalist!!! Nice to have a famous parent! Jmo

  • No better man than Anderson Cooper. I am so happy his dream has been fulfilled to be a father.

  • Do you think Anderson Cooper is an aggressive top or a submissive bottom?

  • Such a perfect yet unbearable description of your life without a father on Father’s Day and other holidays, and how no one even really thought about it nor could they possibly understand it unless they, too, experienced such a powerful loss. Anderson Cooper I am probably not the only person listening in that really appreciates you speaking publicly about what it was like, putting it all into words, describing what it was like going through the same things as I also did, when my amazingly loving Dad died when I was ten.

  • You ain't got one honest in your head Anderson - and it shows, and it's a fact.

  • Today is my evicition day. I think it makes you happy me ending on the streets, right? What you're gonna tell "your" son? What kind of story? You love telling "stories". They're more important to you than truth.

  • You'll see Anderson. We aren't finished yet at all. What's the point in keep on lying? The truth is gonna come out anyhow.

  • Ok Stephen, sometimes it’s beautiful but when you’re covered in your baby’s explosive diarrhea - it’s really not beautiful

  • I just had the feeling that Wyatt knows his grandma is watching over him.

    • I really appreciate all your support and encouragement towards me . I am very grateful and thankful to have you as a wonderful fan that cares so much

  • The baby fat for Dads comes after the baby.

  • Love his laugh too!..

  • when you see the birth, ur right it is truly beautiful,, get the hot water, lol and towels out, some even faint, lol

  • Poor baby hotdog :’(

  • I used language like that as a child. It was how my parents talked. I could never figure out why they were laughing.

    • When conversations are interesting you smile over it.

  • One of my crushes Anderson 👏🏻 (yes I know he’s gay) He’s boy looks just like his mother the resemble is just wow ❤️🕊 I don’t care what people think about this man I like him he’s a good father and I’m glad he decided to become a Dad. Talking about his Dad broke my heart he misses him and is clearly he was very important to him and loosing him at a young age and not having him while growing up was painful. 🕊❤️ Steven im a gay man we can’t let ourselves go that way 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤣🤣🤣🤣 I would say gay men take care of themselves more and I don’t see anything wrong with that

  • Colbert loves echo chamber crossovers

  • Fun Fact: after operation mockingbird was discovered in the 70s Anderson Cooper became an intern at the CIA during college for 2 summers. Despite having no backgrounds or experience in journalism he has become one of the faces of CNN. 🤔

  • I love his laugh. 🤣🙈

  • Two of my favorite people, Stephen and Anderson!

  • Anderson Cooper. I find that really wonderful too..Much love. Thank you Stephen Colbert.

  • nothing good to say, you lost me long ago, Mr. Colbert Puppet.

  • I suspected, but did not know, that Cooper had a humorous side. I know he's intelligent, but on his show, he's always talking about doom and destruction in the middle east.

  • The walls are closing in on "COMUNIST BROADCAST STATION". The storm is coming and there is "nothing you can do about it".

  • Good job guys

  • I love Anderson. I love his humanity. And he is so blessed with Wyatt. What a lucky baby boy.

  • Stephen looked a bit more like a soon-to-be mom than a dad....

  • Anderson Cooper seems to me to be a really sweet guy! That baby is SUPER ADORABLE!!!!

  • The dad bod doesnt come in till around year 4 of being a dad
