Anderson Cooper on Mubarak Speech: ‘What we heard were the same lies we’ve heard for more than 2 weeks’

CNN’s Anderson Cooper appeared on the network shortly after Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak‘s address to the nation. Cooper was highly critical of the President’s speech, saying “What we heard were the same lies we’ve heard for more than 2 weeks.”

More after the jump.

“He kept repeating these lies, that this is all some sort of foreign interference and that’s something we’ve heard on state television, they’re being paid, they’re being motivated to go there. They’re being paid $100 or 100 Euros depending on what report you hear. He talked about they will not accept to listen to any foreign interventions and dictation. Trying to play up on Egyptian national pride, saying they are resisting the United States and others from who want to dictate to Egypt what they want. Again these are lies of a regime who is trying to stay in power. He says its not about me, Hosni Mubarak, its about the people of Egypt. What you are looking at are the people of Egypt, it’s all about Hosni Mubarak, and he believes it is all about him, he believes he is Egypt.”
