Roughly the first 35 minutes of the first hour of Thursday's 360 was on GOP Veep Pence's airplane skidding off a runway at New York's LaGuardia Airport. It was truly *BREAKING NEWS*. Anderson talked to Lee Arends, Elizabeth Landers (CNN producer who was on the plane), Mary Schiavo, Miles O'Brien and David Souci for all kinds of angles and details.

At :40 into the first hour after what I believe was the first commercial break (not sure because I wandered around TV land occasionally during the plane coverage) Anderson reviewed the plane skidding, showed Trump at an Ohio rally, showed some poll numbers and had a JohnKing-styled "By The Numbers" with David Challian. The bottom line of the electoral map? Hillary still wins. Instead of watching the panel of 6 I watched Hayes interview Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH).

Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton were at a campaign rally together in North Carolina. Jeff Zeleny had a report on this which also included approval ratings for President Obama and more on Hillary's emails. Anderson talked to Zeleny for a bit before previewing the start of the second hour: Pence's plane skidding.

ATA - BIG THANKS!!! Loved seeing the women's panel again. I didn't like Ana Navarro back when she was a GOP parrot but she's really got a good perspective now that she's speaking for herself. Amanda Carpenter also appears a lot more sensible especially when compared to the deeply delusional Kaleigh McEnany. I wish Anderson had asked her where she was getting those poll numbers from ("...Trump's only 8 points behind Clinton..." ) What? Reminds me of a New Yorker article title "Trump Surges Ahead Of Clinton In Poll Conducted By His Brain".

@JAANZA LOVE THAT LAST LINE: "TRUMP SURGES AHEAD OF CLINTON IN POLL CONDUCTED BY HIS BRAIN."
LET'S HOPE SO.

Thanks, CAPPY! One of the more interesting pieces of Trump coverage this season has been from psychologists or even from people like Tony Schwartz explaining what's going on in Trump's head. Explaining not excusing or spinning the way his parrots do.

Just to clarify - when McEnany said 'Trump's only 8 points behind...' she was referring to just the women's vote.

COULD ANDERSON AND DANA BASH BE MORE GLEEFUL AT THE EXPECTATION OF THE RELEASE OF NEW EMAILS FROM
THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN AND ONES THAT INVOLVE ANTHONY WEINER?
OF COURSE WOLF, ANDERSON, AND BASH, WERE ALL ASKING THE SAME QUESTION: HOW WILL THIS INFO EFFECT THE POLLS, IF AT ALL? AND TRUMP IS ABSOLUTELY IN SEVENTH HEAVEN AT THE THOUGHT OF THIS OCTOBER SURPRISE. COULD HILLARY ACTUALLY BE FACING AN INDICTMENT?
WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SOMEONE AS SMART AS HILLARY NOT KNOW THE BASIC FACTS WHEN IT COMES TO DISCOVERY AND EMAILS? NOT THAT ANY OF THIS WILL CHANGE MY VOTE BUT IT MAY BODE WELL FOR THE TRUMP
CAMPAIGN, WHICH ALLOWS SUPPORTERS TO YELL "LOCK HER UP!"
IF THERE EVER WAS AN UNSAVORY CHARACTER, IT IS TRUMP, NOT HILLARY. BUT THE DEED IS DONE, AND NOW WE
HAVE TO HOPE THAT SMART EDUCATED HILLARY SUPPORTERS VOTE IN MASS.
ON A LIGHTER NOTE, PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL GRACE BILL MAHER WITH HIS PRESENCE NEXT FRIDAY, PROBABLY VIA SATELLITE. BILL HAD HIS AUDIENCE PETITION THE WHITE HOUSE FOR A LIVE INTERVIEW AND IT HAS PAID OFF, ESPECIALLY NOW THAT "THE RACE IS TIGHTENING." REALLY SCARY.

I agree with Cappy's point about AC and Dana Bash. Clearly not fans of Hillary and they can barely conceal it. If people are going to change their vote from Hillary to a lunatic racist know-nothing and unstable narcissist like Trump, they deserve what they're going to get.

GOOD FOR ANA NAVARRO FOR TELLING ALL THE TRUMPETTS THAT "THEIR LEADER IS NO ROLE MODEL AND IS THE
LOWEST FORM OF HUMANITY." I AGREE. HOW COULD THESE STUPID BLONDE BIMBOS SPEAK FOR EDUCATED AMERICAN
WOMEN WHEN NONE OF THEM ARE EDUCATED, LIKE THEIR LEADER.
