Anderson Cooper: Orlando Tragedy Brings Him to Tears

Anderson Cooper couldn't hold back his emotions as he attempted to read the names of everyone who was killed in the Orlando massacre.

Cooper started to list all 49 victims during his show on CNN, but after just a few moments it was clear this was going to be difficult. He got choked up a few times, and eventually it was just too much for him.

Anderson did ultimately manage to get through the full list, but it wasn't easy.
