    Laura thinks she is an expert on everything. Just because she was a federal prosecutor and got her jollies on putting everyone under the jail that breathed, it doesn’t make her the smartest hottie in D. C.

    1. Papa JoeDec 4, 2018 at 2:53 am


      Laura is intelligent, attractive, articulate, and very knowledgeable. She is a straight shooter and attempts to be factual and non-partisan. We need more of these.

    2. JewelOct 25, 2023 at 4:13 am


      Her broad experience allows her to do that.

  2. Darline HaroldOct 4, 2018 at 2:22 am


    Mueller should put Laura Coates on his team……TODAY!!

  3. Gilbert SangaOct 3, 2018 at 11:38 pm


    I thought I was the only one that have noticed the intelligence of Laura Coates. Hands up this woman is amazing her explanations on legal matters is as clear as it can be. You rock Laura, keep up!!!

  4. Terry SughrueOct 3, 2018 at 10:42 pm


    Coates & Hennessy are the 2 brightest legal analysts on cable.
    They would be a good ticket for POTUS & VP in 2020.

  5. George N WeahOct 3, 2018 at 10:33 pm


    I find Laura Coates very much admirable as a lady with special thoughts whenever she is analyzing on legal topics. Laura is a very much humble and intelligence person.

    1. D’o HamiltonAug 8, 2020 at 3:36 am


      Simply the best ever on CNN

  6. VoaOct 3, 2018 at 2:29 pm


    wow, I am so impressed by the accolades on Laura. I had thought I was the only one who found this lady intelligent and in the right profession. She speaks like a lawyer should, and perhaps a judge. She is also very beautiful; she is gorgeous intellectually and physically. As a Canadian, I watch any CNN program that features her and always wait for her to speak!

  7. Veronica LindsayOct 3, 2018 at 3:06 am


    I love the lady. She is pretty, smart, and intelligent. Everytime I see her I remind myself that I too want to be a lawyer.

    1. James ParkerJul 13, 2023 at 2:07 am


      This lady is a model for other females who are mothers, sisters, aunties, cousins…Smart, pretty, articulate, and well educated.

  8. Anne DochertySep 8, 2018 at 2:35 am


    Laura Coates, as this thread shows, I’m not the only one impressed by your intelligent and amazingly articulate analysis of the daily events in Washington. You are a great asset to the people of America, in providing such a clear understanding of the extent of damage the Trump administration is inflicting on the country. As a Canadian and a close observer of the unbelievable vitriol, lies and hatred that is coming from your President, I’m so glad that someone like you can calmly counteract that, explaining so rationally, with facts and without losing your ‘cool’. That’s real talent!! Run for office. America needs you!

  9. Jennifer LesleySep 5, 2018 at 7:34 pm


    Laura, you are a brilliant woman and a superb role model. I hope I live to see you elected President.

  10. Deacon Tony AmdrewsSep 4, 2018 at 6:00 am


    If I needed a lawyer, Laura Coates would be the first person I would call. My daughter wants to be a lawyer so she listen to how well Laura speaks and how knowledgable she is. Very refreshing and proud to see a African American represent so well.

  11. Bernie OnuohaSep 3, 2018 at 6:03 pm


    We need more Lauras to be given the opportunity to showcase the beauty, knowledge and intelligence that is typical of many proud black women. Laura, You Rock!!!

  12. AngelaSep 1, 2018 at 3:26 pm


    I thoroughly enjoy her radio show-her humor and laughter are priceless!
    The book, You Gave the Right, should be required reading in all HBCU University 101 classes, particularly, and in University 101 classes and Social Work/Sociology courses in general.

  13. Garfee SouareSep 1, 2018 at 3:24 pm


    She’s indeed a strong and professional analyst. I love her golden voice

  14. John T HalliburtonAug 5, 2018 at 4:27 am


    Simply ONE of the best communicators in media. Smart, quick-witted, intelligible, with true leadership qualities. Much Love and Blessings!!!

  15. Daniel OwusuAug 5, 2018 at 2:28 am


    Her intelligence, articulation and sharp point of view compelled me to Google her background. I’m not surprise; she’s got impeccable credentials. Congratulations Laura!

  16. Theresa ColemanAug 3, 2018 at 6:30 pm


    I love listening to Laura. She is so on top of her game, a brilliant attorney who’s sharp and intelligent, humble and a beauty with a sense of humor. I can tell we will hear a lot more from her.

  17. Al JonsonAug 2, 2018 at 2:23 pm


    If I’m not sitting in front of the TV when Laura is on CNN, I run to the TV. I am proud of her success of a woman who happens to be black. Beside being “drop dead gorgeous”, I’m madly in love with her brain. I hope my grown daughters and granddaughters catch on to this positive civil rights and women’s rights super heroine.
    May the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob continue blessing you and your household.

  18. Timothy JamesAug 2, 2018 at 10:32 am


    I am glad that I have a portal an opportunity to say to Laura Coates how intrigued I am by your intelligence I witness from time to time on CNN.

    Very nice work!!!
    Thank you

    *Have, not Gave

  20. Suni PereraJul 11, 2018 at 3:35 am


    I am an Asian Canadian of Sri Lankan origin who currently resides in Montreal, Canada. As a frequent viewer of the CNN programs of Wolf Blitzer, John King, Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon I began noticing a charismatic and smart young contributor on some of the panels whose name is Laura Coates and was immediately drawn to the manner she conducted herself with dignity and style and the sublime aura of someone with particular grace and charm around her which stood out in a crowd each time she articulated her thoughts. She seemed to have wisdom and intelligence way beyond her years and I do enjoy all her appearances on CNN TONIGHT together with the rest of its contributors but Laura’s presence truly embellishes the show. I wish her every success in her future.

  21. Marie BellinJul 5, 2018 at 1:25 pm


    Too bad there are not more lawyers like her. She is so sweet and humble.
    Does not interrupt others and seems very calm and content.not put on
    or artificial and made up with makeup, etc. Keep it up Laura. You are a
    class act.

  22. WilfredJul 4, 2018 at 8:29 pm


    Laura is a wise, intelligent and articulate young lady.

  23. Sean MunginJul 3, 2018 at 6:44 am


    Laura Coates is a highly intelligent lawyer who happens to be a woman. I say it this way because she deserves to be respected as a legal professional for the work she has done in the same manner as her male counterparts would be respected. Hands down, she knows the law and is a legal force to be reckoned with. She is well poised and carries herself with a level of dignity and respect that is demanded as soon as she opens her mouth to speak.

  24. AnnJul 3, 2018 at 2:06 am


    I’ve watched CNN for many years, however when Laura Coates would come home she caught my attention very quickly. She has expertise in the field of whatever is being discussed and she is very poised. But this what amazes me, if a topic is discussed where she does not agree or if something is said that is not clear enough, she brings the clarification so clearly that a first grader could understand. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her get angry to the point where it shows on her face. This woman is very intelligent and lovely.

    1. Terrence Charles LewisMay 5, 2018 at 6:07 pm


      Mrs Coates is smart…beautiful…and should run for public office

    2. Paul CharbonneauNov 3, 2018 at 12:56 am


      Yes, she is. First class

  25. Garland...Jun 5, 2018 at 2:20 am



  26. Troy KicklighterJun 4, 2018 at 10:09 pm


    I thoroughly enjoy listening and following Ms Coates. Her brilliance shines brightly and is so very articulate…I appreciate so much her genuineness and combined with her empathic qualities, presents an excellent personna that begs of public office-and what a wonderful leader she would be for the US…

  27. Adrian AshJun 4, 2018 at 5:52 pm


    I am so very proud Ms. Coates. It is so refreshing and enlightening to hear her comment on such critical issues. As a black man I say keep raising the bar. Yesss
    Bro Ash

  28. RazJun 4, 2018 at 3:33 am


    I am truly very attentive when Laura comes on CNN, listen to every word that comes out of this intelligent lady. She is truly amazing. Keep up the great work Ms Laura. You are an asset to the American system of justice and fairness. As a black person I am proud of you. Watching you from north and free (Canada)

  29. Mark SimonMay 8, 2018 at 3:57 am


    I have been watching Laura Coates for a long time on CNN. Laura is one of those few jems that you see passing by in your lifetime. She is brilliant and she is wonderful to listen to. It is, no doubt, a great honor for Laura to be asked to assume the position of MC of Jeopardy. I watch Jeopardy all the time. All the participants with few exceptions know their stuff. However, I believe that Laura has a higher calling to become a great Supreme Court Justice or a Politician of major importance. The fact is that we all know that whatever Laura does, she will do it and do it well.

  30. AnnMay 7, 2018 at 1:06 am


    I love watching when she is on CNN. Smart, intelligent, poised and so very knowledgeable.

  31. Jerry AgbaMay 5, 2018 at 10:02 pm


    Laura, youre simply an amazing personality -enigmatic.
    Pride of the Black Race.

  32. SandiMay 5, 2018 at 6:11 pm


    What an intelligent and lovely woman. Keep up the good work!!!

  33. OlaMay 5, 2018 at 2:09 am


    I along with many people enjoy listening to this articulate and intelligent woman. She explains the situation so clearly. I’m in awe and very impressed with Laura Coates. We ‘the North’ love Laura!

  34. Brenda MauricetteApr 8, 2018 at 10:04 pm


    Intelligent, brilliant, beautiful, gracious, articulate, humble, unpretentious, polite, well mannered ( gently and firmly chides when others are interrupting), professional, great sense of humour, explains simply etc., etc.,
    I live in Canada…When Laura is part of the panel, I stop what I’m doing and wait to hear her analysis and views. She’s one in a million!!
    CNN is lucky to have her!!
    Laura for the Spreme Court!!

  35. DanaMar 5, 2018 at 11:28 pm


    Her intelligence only accents her beauty. I don’t usually Google folks, but I had to find out more about this incredible lady. Love this woman and I’m so impressed with her academic background. Rock on Laura. I will find your radio show and start listening.

  36. John S. AguonMar 5, 2018 at 12:46 pm


    Very appreciative of the legal acumen Laura lens to the discourse of the moment, and am quite taken with her ability to articulate on the fly. Thanks for candor and compelling views.

  37. WayneMar 4, 2018 at 9:40 pm


    I agree with Cheryl………Yes! Laura Coates for President!

    I also enjoy watching Laura commentate on CNN like most of you! But she made my day today……I bumped into her and actually got to meet this SuperWoman & SuperMom!

    What a Gem we have in our presence.
