Did anyone watch all two hours of 360? Although the attack in Nice was breaking it was also heartbreaking. I watched 360's first hour and, when it seemed like Maddow would also devote her entire show to Nice, I had to stop watching her after twenty minutes. I just didn't want to see the death toll climb higher.

Anderson started with an overview: a large truck, whose driver shot at people first, crashed into crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice France. At first it was 73 dead, then 75 and at the end of the hour it was up to 77.

Anderson talked to Becky Anderson, Jim Sciutto, witness Dominique Molina, Philip Mudd, Peter Bergen, Paul Cruickshank, Juliette Kayyem, Robert Baer, Suzanne Malveaux, Paris Match editor Regis Le Somber, witness Paul Delane and witness Zeynip Akar. Interspersed throughout was footage of the truck speeding and the aftermath. Anderson handled it all expertly.

On a much-needed lighter note, interesting photo of Anderson's grandfather, Reginald Vanderbilt. The photo must be from around 1890. I see some similarities with Anderson's looks around the same age.

ANDERSON HAS A DEFINITE RESEMBLANCE TO HIS GREAT GRANDFATHER, OR IS IT HIS GRANDFATHER.
HE HAS THE SAME FACIAL CONTOUR AND EYES.
NICE FIND.

Maybe I missed the announcement but I was surprised that Hillary Clinton called into 360 during the second hour--wasn't expecting that at all--it seemed so random, but it was good to hear her perspective--AC and his guests seemed to take issue with some of her statements but whatever...the contrast between Hillary and Trump is beyond stark--one is completely presidential and competent and the other is...god only knows. The discussion of the attack in Nice with AC and guests was pretty engrossing--there's nothing better than listening to knowledgeable people who know their facts.

AC sure has eyes like his grandpa.

NOW WE HAVE A SERIOUS "COUP" IN TURKEY. THIS HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE LOSE FAITH IN THEIR GOVERNMENT. LET ME REPEAT THIS: A COUP HAPPENS WHEN "PEOPLE LOSE FAITH IN THEIR GOVERNMENT."
IS "THE DUCK LISTENING?" BECAUSE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE, IF TRUMP SETS ONE FOOT IN THE WHITE
HOUSE, OUR WHITE HOUSE, GUESS WHAT???THIS IS JUST MY PREDICTION, BUT HE'S A REALITY STAR,
AND MANY OF US DON'T WANT AN "UNINFORMED REALITY STAR, THAT IS A BIGOT, IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
ESPECIALLY DURING TIMES OF CRISIS AND UNREST, SOMEONE WHO CAN'T LOCATE ISTANBUL OR NICE ON A MAP.
HILLARY CHALLENGE THIS "LAME DUCK TO A DEBATE." WATCH HIM SQUIRM....WHAT TREAT!!
