(ORLANDOSENTINEL) — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi's recent pledge in support of "our LGBT community" resulted in a live, on-air grilling from CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.
"Do you really believe you're a champion of the gay community?" Cooper asked during an interview in Orlando Tuesday.
Bondi announced Sunday following the Pulse nightclub shooting that "Anyone who attacks our LGBT community, anyone who attacks anyone in our state, will be gone after to the fullest extent of the law."

"I talked to a lot of gay and lesbian people here yesterday who are not fans of yours, and who said they thought you were being a hypocrite," Cooper told Bondi .
