CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Thursday gave Conan O’Brien a glowing assessment of Haiti earlier than the discuss present host’s journey there. In a chat on “Conan,” Cooper declared the Caribbean nation “among the many richest international locations I’ve ever been to.”
O’Brien introduced he was visiting Haiti for a “Conan With out Borders” episode to get in President Donald Trump’s face for reportedly calling Haiti a “shithole” (or was it “shithouse”?) throughout a White Home assembly on immigration coverage.
Cooper, who visits Haiti typically, applauded the comic’s plan and supplied his personal journey information.
“It’s the poorest nation within the Western Hemisphere, however a rustic could be poor economically and wealthy in tradition and wealthy within the energy of the individuals and wealthy in so many various methods,” Cooper stated. “And Haiti is in that manner among the many richest international locations I’ve ever been to. The Haitian individuals are extremely robust, carry themselves with such dignity, and for generations have had governments which haven’t paid consideration to them, which have stolen from them, and but, no matter adversity they’ve confronted, they confronted it head-on.”
Too dangerous O’Brien couldn’t pack that in his suitcase.
It was Cooper’s impassioned protection of Haiti final week after Trump’s comment that impressed O’Brien’s journey plan. And now, the funnyman is packing his luggage. Go get ’em, Conan, and unfold some goodwill whilst you’re there.
Watch the entire phase above.
“Conan In Haiti” airs Jan. 27.
