Anderson Cooper 360 on Monday, February 20, 2017


Anderson Cooper was back in the AC360 anchor chair for a two hour edition of AC360 from the NYC studio.

In the second hour Anderson spoke with Carl Bernstein about Trump's attacks on the press as compared to Richard Nixon:

Nice to see discussions that don't include Jeff Lord--unfortunately K-Lee was still around. I still wish there were more liberals on the AC360 panel--there's no diversity at all. I haven't seen Van Jones, Bakari Sellars, Maria Cardona, Angela Rye, Karine Jean-Pierre or Ana Navarro on 360 in ages. I was happy to see Charles Blow on a few weeks back, but most nights it's the same panel of reporters and one liberal. I hope 360 doesn't go all softball on Trump or stop featuring anti-Trump panelists because Trump and son in law Jared Kushner don't like it.

David Gergen said something about how Trump is rejecting diversity in favor of a more white homogeneous population--no kidding--that's exactly why his supporters voted for him and it's exactly why so many are pushing back and protesting his presidency--America was supposed to be about accepting people from all backgrounds but Trump is turning back the clock.

One of AC's guests said that Melania Trump has an inspiring story to tell. And what is that exactly? She has a bunch of racy nude pics on the internet and her immigration status is still sketchy--Trump said she'd hold a press conference to clear it up--never happened. Melania living in NYC instead of the White House may cost taxpayers millions of dollars--Michelle Obama may have not wanted to leave Chicago to live in the White House, but she was responsible enough to recognize the importance of it, unlike Melania. I don't find Melania praise-worthy, especially after she parroted Trump's birther baloney against President Obama and she backed Trump up during his "p-grabbing" controversy. Anderson might think Melania's a nice, impressive person, but many of us see her as someone who had no problem marrying a vile racist and sexist con artist simply because she wanted his money. Nothing to admire there.

Happy Birthday Gloria!!

The frog instagram was too cute.

Btw, Anderson was filming a 60 minutes story on Le Pen in France, it seems, which frankly scares me a little bit.

MELANIA TRUMP WAS FEATURED IN 'US MAGAZINE' AND THE POOR THING IS FINDING BEING FIRST LADY VERY
DIFFICULT. IT WASN'T WHAT SHE SIGNED UP FOR. NO, SHE SIGNED UP FOR MARRYING PRINCE CHARMING AND
LOW AND BEHOLD SHE HAD A RUDE AWAKENING. THE PRINCE WAS A FROG, A HUNDRED YEARS OLD WITH ORANGE FANGS, AND HE TURNED STALKS OF HAY INTO GOLD THREADS AND WHISKED THE HAY AWAY AND GAVE IT TOO HIS DAUGHTER,
BECAUSE HE LOVED ONLY THOSE WHO WERE ACTUALLY BLOOD RELATIVES AND LOOKED LIKE HIM.
HE THEN CALLED HIS CLAN TOGETHER, WHICH INCLUDED TWO SONS FROM A FORMER MARRIAGE, AND ONE NAMED BARON FROM MELANIA. HE TOLD THEM ALL HE WANTED TO BE PRESIDENT INSTEAD OF HIS LIFE TIME AMBITION, FIREMAN.
MELANIA WAS SO SURPRISED THAT SHE WAS ASKED TO ESCORT TOURISTS THROUGH THE WHITE HOUSE. SHE REFUSED, UNLESS OF COURSE, SHE GOT PAID. SHE SAID SHE WAS TIRED OF BEING A LAUGHING STOCK BECAUSE OF HER ACCENT, AND IT WASN'T HER FAULT THAT SHE PLAGIARIZED MICHELLE OBAMA'S SPEECH,
AND READ IT ALOUD AT THE RNC. NO ONE WAS SUPPOSE TO NOTICE.
THE FROG PRINCE SAID NOT TO WORRY. SHE COULD STAY IN HER PENT HOUSE SUITE WITH THEIR ELEVEN YEAR OLD SON BARON, WHILE THE FROG DID THE "DIRY WORK," OF CLEANING UP THE "MESS" THAT THE FORMER OCCUPANT OF THE PRESIDENCY SUPPOSEDLY LEFT BEHIND.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GLORIA....AT 93. WE SHOULD ALL BE SO LUCKY.

EVERYONE SHOULD LOOK AT THE VIDEO PROVIDED BY THE ATA TEAM OF CARL BERNSTEIN SPEAKING TO
ANDERSON. HIS STATEMENT THAT TRUMP THINKS "THE TRUTH" IS HIS ENEMY AND "THE TRUTH" IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, IS A BULLS EYE. HAVING LIVED THROUGH THE NIXON YEARS, ANDERSON WAS VERY YOUNG, AT THE TIME, NIXON SAID NASTY THINGS ABOUT THE PRESS IN PRIVATE. TRUMP HAS GONE DIRECTLY TO HIS SUPPORTERS TO STIR UP HATE AND VITRIOL WITHIN THE RANKS OF THE PUBLIC. THAT IS VERY DISTURBING AND THE REASON WE ARE SEEING MORE HATE CRIMES THAN USUAL.
BERNSTEIN ALSO QUESTIONS TRUMP'S MENTAL STABILITY AS WELL. WE CANNOT HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO APPEARS TO BE MENTALLY UNBALANCED RUNNING AND RUINING THE COUNTRY WITH HIS FEAR MONGERING TACTICS.
