Joe Amendola Conducts Bizarre Interview On CNN, Asks If He's Going On 'With Somebody Cute'

The bizarre behavior of Jerry Sandusky's lead defense attorney Joe Amendola continued Friday night. Amendola started the day Friday by saying he would "die of a heart attack" if his client was acquitted by the jury. The perplexing attorney continued his odd statements on Friday night while holding a press conference on the steps of the Centre County Courthouse after his client was convicted on 45 of 48 charges.

Amendola then continued his media appearances by joining CNN's Anderson Cooper after the press conferences from both sides. He walked up to CNN correspondent Jason Carroll and their camera setup, and made some questionable off-the-cuff comments as he was being hooked up for the interview. The CNN correspondent alerted him that he was going live, to which he responded:

"With who? Somebody cute?"

He then leaned into the microphone and in a gregarious manner, exclaimed:

"C'mon Anderson, he knows I love you."

One would presume that Mr. Amendola did not know he was live on the air, but after the series of statements he's made over the course of his representation of Jerry Sandusky, that's not a certainty. Whether he knew it was live or not, his exchange here is quite illustrative of his odd behavior. Video of his interview below, courtesy of @Jose3030:
