Anderson Cooper on Sunday, November 6, 2016


Anderson Cooper anchored a two hour special edition of AC360 on Sunday night from Washington, D.C.   There was a rather contentious exchange in Anderson's interview with KellyAnne Conway in the first hour.  It was long so we are posting in two parts:

Thanks, ATA, for posting the videos of Anderson interviewing Kellyanne Conway. I didn't know there was a Sunday night 360.

Anderson displayed very good pushback against Conway's dumb statements and tried valiantly to stop the spin. Although this wasn't totally successful because Conway is blender-proficient at spinning, I appreciate Anderson making numerous efforts to get intelligent answers.

When Conway said, regarding Trump's brief stop at the Minneapolis/St.Paul airport for a rally, that 22000 R.S.V.P.ed for a place that holds 4500, they parked their cars a mile away and "walked in the rain" to be at the rally. There was no rain anywhere near the airport all day and the temperature was in the mid-60s. Local news reports are only stating that "thousands" showed up and aren't being more specific about crowd size.
Anderson should have asked Conway why Trump made a stop in Minnesota. Time is running out and why would he waste time speaking in an unquestionably blue state? He has no chance here.

Lastly, I really like it when Anderson wears those glasses. So retro and so cool.

@JAANZA; THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONAL INTERVIEW AND "THIS ANDERSON" IS THE ANDERSON WE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN
LAST YEAR. ON THE EVE OF AN ELECTION THAT WAS SO VICIOUS BECAUSE OF TRUMP'S TONE, THE ANDERSON WITH
SMIRK AND FORTITUDE SHOULD HAVE MADE HIS APPEARANCE, DURING, NOT AFTER, HIS INTERVIEWS WITH THE OBNOXIOUS CANDIDATE. AC HAD MANY OPPORTUNITIES AND TO LET JEFF LORD AND KAY LEE 'BLATHER'
HABITUALLY DURING PANEL DISCUSSIONS, MAKING NO SENSE WHATSOEVER, WAS JUST TEDIOUS.
MAYBE A LITTLE ANGER AND SMIRK FROM AC WOULD HAVE DONE KAY LEE A WORLD OF GOOD. (SHE LOOKED ANXIOUS TONIGHT) OH WHY? DID SHE SEE MICHELLE AND OBAMA AND THE CLINTON'S WITH THE HUGE CROWD IN PHILLY??
POOR THING.
I'VE GOTTEN USED TO ANDERSON WITH HIS FRAMES AND LIKE ALL PEOPLE WHO WEAR GLASSES, THE EYES BECOME
USED TO THEM AND WITHOUT THEM THEY LOOK AS THOUGH SOMETHING IS MISSING. SCOTTIE NELL, MAZEL TOV HUGHES, SHOWED US ALL WHAT SHE'S BEEN MISSING.....A BRAIN.

After the last year and a half I have come to the conclusion CNN cares nothing about news unless it pertains to "he who should not be named" thetefore I am boycotting the network.
