"Gotham" is off the schedule for a while so I was able to watch Monday's 360 although I missed the first minute.

Anderson was with Pamela Brown about the "Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeals To Hold Hearing On Trump Ban". Next he interviewed Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson about the hearing, Trump's refugee ban, the judges decision and various other angles. I was distracted for part of the interview. Then Anderson introduced a panel of 6 and I switched to MSNBC.
When I checked back I'm not sure if the first segment was still on or if the show had moved to the second segment. Anderson was apparently moderating a debate between Ferguson, Alan Dershowitz and former VA Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli. However in a few minutes the panel came back.

The panel discussion on the same topic continued in the next segment.

I missed the start of the report on "Trump Slams Media During CentCom Speech". That was the Central Command meeting in Florida and Trump did talk a bit about the troops, NATA and U.S. military concerns. But that was drowned out by his ranting, complaining and dissing the media. Anderson and Jim Acosta had a short chat. Anderson ended the segment by addressing Trump's claim that the media downplay or don't report terrorism; he said he did and backed it up with video footage from recent attacks.

The last segment of the first hour was Anderson's interview with Gen. Mike Mullen, the former Chiefs of Staff head honcho who doesn't like Steve Bannon being on the National Security Council.
Anderson previewed the start of the second hour: the same topic that started the first.

Both Hayes' sub Joy Reid and Maddow covered the Democratic Senator's 24-hour "talkathon" to delay the vote on Betsy DeVos, Trump's nominee for Dept. of Education. Anderson must have covered this in the second hour.

Love the photo of Anderson with Andy Cohen's dog. What a sweetie-pie doggie.

There were more weighty issues raised in Maggie Haberman and Glenn Thrush's NYT report on Trump--he didn't read the details of the Executive Order that placed Steve Bannon in the National Security Counsel--so Trump signed it without having a real understanding of what it meant--probably the case with the majority of the EO's Bannon has shoved on the desk for him to sign. Anderson and Haberman should've spent more time on that subject instead of trying to make excuses for Team Trump not being able to find light switches or talking about Trump's bathrobe--and since when is it a reporter's job to "humanize" Trump?

Anderson will be on Seth Myers today, I think.

btw, a lot of people are saying CNN is grooming Jake Tapper to replace Anderson. What do you guys think?

@aries moon

Maggie does that a lot (humanize Trump), I follow her and Glenn on twitter and they take a softer view of him than do many others. I have often wondered if they temper Anderson's opinion of Trump too, because he seems to follow Maggie very closely.

Though Anderson seemed pretty done tonight.

GOOD INTERVIEW WITH JAKE TAPPER AND KELLYANNE CONWAY 'TODAY ON THE LEAD.'
OF COURSE MS SPIN CYCLE SHOULD BE WORKING FOR A WASHING MACHINE COMPANY INSTEAD OF HER AMBIGUOUS TITLE "COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT." SHE'S THE ONE WHO NEEDS COUNSELING. OK HE DOES TOO.
SHE SAYS TRUMP IS GETTING SO LITTLE RESPECT FROM THE MEDIA AND OTHER PRESIDENTS WEREN'T TREATED THAT WAY. I SAY: DEAR YOU SHOULD BE GLAD THEY REPORT ON DON JUAN CHAOS AT ALL. HE SIGNS THINGS HE DOESN'T READ, NICE. NOTE FROM NORTH KOREA: "WE WILL BE SETTING OFF SUBMARINES
AT 9PM ." TRUMP SIGNS IT. "IT WAS THE MEDIAS FAULT FOR REPORTING THIS AND THAT'S NOT MY SIGNATURE." (WELL, THIS IS TRUMP'S MENTALITY.)
TEAM TRUMP CAN'T BE HUMANIZED BECAUSE UNFORTUNATELY, HE IS NOT OF THE HUMAN SPECIES. HE HAS NO MORAL COMPASS AND CARES ONLY ABOUT HIMSELF. POOR KELLYANNE. EVEN HER SPIN ISN'T SPINNING ANYMORE. BLONDE AMBITION WAS WHINING TO ANDERSON ON 360 THAT THE MEDIA "ONLY REPORTS NEGATIVE THINGS ABUT HER BOSS." IF THERE WAS ANYTHING POSITIVE TO SAY, THAT WOULD BE MIRACLE.
