Anderson Cooper Opens Show With Incredibly Emotional Reading of Orlando Victims’ Names

Anderson Cooper opened his show tonight with an incredibly moving 7-minute reading of the names of all the Orlando terrorism victims.

Cooper not only read the names of all of the victims, but he provided information about as many of them as he could from the people who loved them.

And multiple times during the entire segment, Cooper was choking up and doing his best to hold back tears.

Cooper made a point of emphasizing at the outset he would not be saying the name of showing the picture of the gunman, explaining, “It’s been shown far too much already.”

You can and should watch the entire segment above, via CNN.
