I'm glad and surprised to see Anderson back, thought he'd be on vacation all week.
However, I still spent chunks of time during Wednesday's 360 watching Hayes.

Anderson started with the tied SCOTUS decision on Obama's executive order on immigration which allows the lower court's ruling to stand. Dana Bash's report was good but would have been better if less time had been spent on Trump's and Hillary Clinton's comments. Fortunately Jeffrey Toobin was on hand for the hard legal facts. Unfortunately Anderson asked Toobin only a few questions before introducing the panel.
I didn't watch the panel discussion. With a few exceptions, Donna Brazile is one of them, I'm so fed up with the usual pundits and switched to Hayes. Hayes talked to (one-on-one) to Thomas Saenz, a lawyer who argued the immigration case before SCOTUS, and Lorella Praeli, Director of National Latino Vote... while Anderson talked to the usual pundits.

"Trump Struggles To Explain Clinton Server Hack Claim" was the on-screen title at the start of the second segment. There was a report, a short Q&A with Phil Mattingly and the panel again. I went to Hayes and coming back later saw that Trump's Scotland trip was being discussed.

Next up was the Democratic Sit-In for gun control. Anderson had a clip and an interview with two Representatives: Rep. Debbie Dinged (D-MI) and Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI). It was great to see Anderson talk to politicians who were in the thick of things instead of the usual pundits again although I thought Duffy was incredibly smarmy.

The most useless report of the night was Anderson's "Brawls While Legislating Common Outside U.S.". At the end of the segment Anderson previewed the next one: Cop Acquitted for Freddie Gray death and Brexit.

Brett was not covered next. The acquittal for the cop who drove the van which carried Freddie Gray had a report and a short Q&A.

I did not watch the second hour except for a few moments at :55 into it. Maddow had the latest results from the Brexit vote, they were updating in real time at the bottom of the screen. I checked 360 to see if Anderson had the same info. 360 was in a commercial break and when Anderson got back he had a preview of the CNN show "Unclassified".
Maybe, just maybe, Anderson had a great report and the latest numbers on Brexit earlier in the 2nd hour and I missed it.

Thanks for the AC/Kelly clips--I wouldn't have known they did new host chats on those repeat episodes.

CNN made an incredibly stupid decision to hire the despicable ex-Trumpie Corey Lewandowski as a political commentator, as if they don't already have more than enough crazy Trumpettes to defend and make excuses for how horrible he is. Lewandowski is a nasty piece of work who has no respect for journalists--just like whoever it was who thought bringing in Lewandowski was a smart idea at CNN.

I'LL SAY THIS FOR TRUMP, HE'S THE JACK A--, EXCUSE MY FRENCH, THAT JUST KEEPS ON GIVING.
ACCORDING TO HUFFPOST, HE ACTUALLY SAID "RUNNING A COUNTRY IS PROBABLY AS EASY AS RUNNING A
GOLF COURSE." HE HAD TO BE OFF SCRIPT FOR THAT ONE. UNLESS SOMEONE IS THERE TO TELL HIM WHAT
TO SAY EVERY INCH OF THE WAY, HE IS STUPIDER THAN SARAH PALIN.....AND YOU HAVE GO ALONG WAY
TO BE THAT DUMB AND BRAZEN. "SARAH MEET DONALD. DONALD THIS IS SARAH. YOU HAVE SO MUCH IN COMMON AND YOU BOTH ARE LOSERS."
