This is another half-baked post about another 360. Wednesday's show started out alright with a closer look at Trump's immigration comments in yesterday's GOP debate. Trump mentioned President Eisenhower's 1954 "Operation Wetback", the forced deportation of about 250,000 (actual number) not 1.5 million (Trump's number) illegal immigrants. Tom Foreman had a good report on "Operation Wetback", Trump's remarks and responses to both. I didn't stay for the panel - Ana Navarro, Maria Cordona, Sam Clovis - because of Clovis. He's a member of the Trump campaign and I just plain don't like him. I went to Hayes.

I came back from Hayes too late to see the start of the second segment which appeared to be all about the Hillary Clinton comments in yesterday's GOP dabete. I saw only part of the panel with Paul Begala, Amanda Carpenter and Jeffrey Lord.

The worst part of the show and a strong contender for worst segment of the month waz the repeated Randi Kaye report on Melania Trump. This is the fourth time it's been broadcast on 360. At the end of the second segment Anderson teased there'd be something new and interesting from Melania Trump - born in Slovenia - would say about her husband's anti-immigration rants. But no, it was the same flattering insipid report we've seen before. After the report Anderson and Kaye tallked and the only so-called *news* here is that Melania won't comment on Trump's politics. I was a sucker for watching the segment and getting nothing.

Next was the news of the gang-related death of nine-year-old Teshawn Lee in Chicago. Anderson's report on Chicago gang violence and his interview with Spike Lee and Father Michael Pfleger are on ATA's post today.

Two years ago a man in Virginia, while handcuffed in police custody, was tasered to death. Now there is a wrongful death lawsuit filed. Deborah Feyerick had the report and the panel was Sunny Hostin and Harry Houck. I didn't watch the panel.

Hayes had a couple of good segments on yesterday's GOP debate, not only scrutinizing Trump's immigration comments but also the comments of several other candidates. Maybe Anderson got that all out of his system in the two-hour post-debate show last night.

AC's report on the violence in Chicago and as Spike Lee said, in other cities across the country was heartbreaking--that poor little boy who was murdered in cold blood over some pointless gang nonsense--just sickening and there seems to be no end or solution. I am interested in seeing Spike Lee's film and his take on why the violence is so out of control--I'm thinking lots of hopelessness and people who feel devalued, worthless and ignored by the larger society--but in some cases it's just plain evil and hatred of themselves and the world around them to the point where nothing has any meaning any longer--I also wouldn't be surprised if the reason so little is being done to stop the violence is because there are people out there who don't care about the killings because it's mainly blacks and Latinos involved and it doesn't matter if they kill each other off--no one cares and that's part of the problem.

AC seems to be afraid to challenge Trump's belligerent lying campaign co-chair Sam Clovis--he let him drone on and on but was anxious to jump in and question Democrat Maria Cardona about some of her statements on Trump and immigration--if there's anyone who needs to be scrutinized by reporters, it's Trump and his reps.

What's the point of tasering someone who is already down and incapable of resisting or fighting back?

360 had another worthless report on Melania Trump--who cares?

Its tragic what's going on Chicago and many cities that Spike Lee named. I wish the media would report more on this crisis in inner city communities but I think they are afraid of looking like racist and offending African American people than to report on the truth. More people have been kill than wars. Where is the urgency? Where is the media? We are in a crisis that is being largely ignored... and largely because of the demographics. If this happening in predominantly Caucasian communities this would be shut down. This genocide has gone on long enough... its time for time, resources to put an end to this. Local and federal need to team up a long with a community partnership. We have to save the future of these kids. More prominent African Americans need to speak up too...

IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT TWO OF DONALD TRUMPS WIVES WERE FOREIGN BORN. WELL TWO OUT OF THREE
AIN'T BAD.....THERE WAS MARLA MAPLES, WHO HE SHED RATHER QUICKLY WHEN SHE BEGAN GETTING MORE PUBLICITY THAN HE.
I SURE HOPE MELANIA IS NOT ILLEGAL AND HER PAPERS ARE UP TO DATE. I WONDER WHAT THIS SAYS ABOUT
TRUMP'S TASTE IN WOMEN. MAYBE FOREIGNERS ARE EASIER TO JUST IGNORE WHEN YOU HAVE AN EGO THAT NEEDS
TO BE FED CONSTANTLY.
