(CNN) -- Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling says he's sorry but feels he was "baited" to make racist comments, nearly two weeks after the NBA fined him and banned him for life for his remarks in a recorded conversation.
"When I listen to that tape, I don't even know how I can say words like that. ... I don't know why the girl had me say those things," he told CNN's Anderson Cooper in an exclusive interview set to air on Monday.
"You're saying you were set up?" Cooper asked.
"Well yes, I was baited," Sterling said. "I mean, that's not the way I talk. I don't talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don't talk about people."
Well, I can't say I didn't see this coming. When all else fails and you are truly screwed, just apologize. That should make everyone totally forget about all the really racists things you said when you didn't think anyone was listening. Obviously, that is when we are at our most dishonest. I only say messed up shit that I don't want publicized when I have a full on audience. I would never dare reveal my true feelings about anything when I feel totally shrouded in privacy...Because that makes total sense, right? NOT. Nice try, D-Ster. Better luck next time not losing your franchise over your own stupid, antiquated views.
Let's be realistic. Look at V. Stiviano and D-Sterling, the happy couple. This relationship was love at first sight, and had nothing to do with money and Viagra. Anderson Cooper is going to eat him alive during his one-on-one interview scheduled to air tonight at 8:00PM on CNN. Check it out!
PS - What's next for Sterling? The Clayton Bigsby defense? @philly_kev_
