Anderson Cooper 360 on Friday, February 26, 2016


Anderson Cooper anchored an expanded edition AC360 from the Washington, DC Bureau on Friday night.  Much of the program was devoted to Republican political coverage.  There was a little Dem coverage in the second hour along with a short piece on the shooting of the day and an AC360 Bulletin.

The Republican presidential campaign is a complete embarrassment for this country--they're childish, unsophisticated, ignorant, racist, sexist, homophobic and heartless. Trump has dragged the entire campaign to his subhuman level. I hope voters come to their senses in November and realize how at risk we are with the Republicans controlling the White House and a buffoon like Trump as president (shudder). Chris Christie is an arrogant idiot who couldn't stand to be out of the presidential race and out of the spotlight, so he debases himself even further and endorses Trump--they deserve each other, but we do not deserve THEM--well maybe the ignorant Republican base and the Republican 'elites' who brought all of this on deserve them.

Trump surrogate Andy Dean seems to be unaware of Trump's own racism--he was laughable trying to criticize Vicente Fox over racist comments he made in the past.

Anderson and Chris Matthews are entirely too fascinated with Trump and Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes are unable to be neutral about Bernie Sanders--both clearly are pulling for him.

ARIES MOON; ABSOLUTELY RIGHT ABOUT TRUMP DEGRADING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, BUT THEY DESERVE WHAT
THEY GOT. TRUMP IS A SPOILED 'ELITES' WHO IS CRASS AND COMMON AND I DON'T WANT HIM TO EVER REPRESENT
MY COUNTRY. HILLARY'S BIG WIN IN SOUTH CAROLINA MAY BE THE TURNING POINT. JUST REPLACE SANDERS
NAME WITH TRUMP'S IN THE FALL. SHE WOULD NEVER STOOP TO TRUMP'S DESPICABLE LEVEL OF IGNORANCE.
SHE IS A FIRST RATE STATES PERSON WHO IS CAPABLE OF DIPLOMACY AND SMARTS, AND WILL SHOW TRUMP'S IGNORANT SUPPORTERS JUST HOW STUPID AND RACIST THEIR CANDIDATE REALLY IS.
MY PREDICTION: HILLARY WILL WIPE TRUMP'S UGLY A-- ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems more of CNN's anchors are getting a little touchy when it comes to The Donald. Over the last couple of weeks twoof them have gone on the defensive when people called them out on the Trump coverage. What happened to impartial reporting, but most of all, what happened to I am entitled to my opinion when it comes to the viewers?

The whole Republican party is a mess from local, feds. The house and Senate are just a mess and Rubio, Cruz and Trump have made this the most vicious cycle yet. AC interviewing Trump's wife tonight. I have no idea why...

@ANON 9:18 PM: TRUMP HAS DEHUMANIZED THE ENTIRE CAMPAIGN AND MADE IT A PARODY. IT HAS BECOME A
SKIT STRAIGHT OUT OF SNL, ONLY IT IS REAL. ONLY IN THE MOVIES ARE THERE STILL INVESTIGATIVE
JOURNOS....THEY ARE A DYING SPECIES RIGHT NOW.

Trump gets the attacks but Rubio, Cruz, Carson and most of gop are all the same. Rubio is being pushed by establishment to be this saving, Presidential grace and his behavior since last debate is beyond the dignity of President. Kasich is the only one acting like an adult right now. Its really sad and disturbing to see people running for President engage in these type of insults. Its disgusting. Trump is one thing. But Rubio and Cruz are just not as electable.

We watched your interview with trump`s wife.She has social graces,which is definitely a one up on trump.However,our current 1st Lady understanda Americans,because she gre up here!Not only that,she did not grow up in a sheltered environment.She persisted,however:and went on to become a lawyer.Whereas,Mrs Trump has very little substance,to intergrate along with her superficial,domineering husband.Alot of prestige&money are at stake for her,however.And,you just know from watching the on screen posture/facial expressions that that must be the reason she sticks w/him.My hunch is:it was some type of arranged marriage.Thanks for letting me vent,Anderson.Enjoy your show.Your a good guy!

THERE WAS NO REASON TO WATCH MELANIA. SHE LIVES THE LIFE 0F THE 1% IN THIS COUNTRY SO IT WOULD BE
TOTALLY UNREALISTIC FOR HER TO EVER ASSUME THE POSITION AS FIRST LADY.
MY GUESS IS IVANKA WOULD BECOME THE FIRST 'GO TO DAUGHTER' THIS COUNTRY HAS EVER SEEN. SHE IS WELL
VERSED AND IMPRESSIVE. I'VE HEARD HER SPEAK AND SHE, NOT MELANIA WAS THE PERSON THE GOP WENT TO
TO TRY TO PERSUADE "THE DONALD" TO CURB HIS BEHAVIOR.
"IT WAS NOT AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE." NO ONE ARRANGES ANYTHING FOR DONALD TRUMP, EXCEPT DONALD TRUMP.
SHE IS "ARM CANDY." END OF STORY.
