Anderson was quite taken aback by Trump's flip-flopping on the positions he took during the campaign--Anderson was surprised that the panel seemed to be willing to give Trump the benefit of the doubt and praise his ability to adapt and grow (I don't buy it). I'm not sure why it's so shocking to AC that Trump couldn't be trusted to keep his word, he has zero principles, no core beliefs and only cares about himself.

How many folks really buy the news that Trump has soured on Steve Bannon and that he's on the outs in the administration? I don't. I think this is another one of those distractions they like to fool the press with--until Bannon's out of the White House altogether, I won't believe that Trump is no longer being advised by him--and there's really no guarantee that Bannon wouldn't still have influence if he WAS out of the White House.

I still wish 360's panels were more diverse on a nightly basis--I saw Maria Cardona and Errol Louis on last week but generally the panel lacks people of color--I don't know if its deliberate or not but it's a little disturbing and perplexing considering how diverse the panels were during the election--I miss Charles Blow, Bakari Sellars and Karine Jean-Pierre. What's wrong with having a variety of perspectives on the panel? CNN recently hired April Ryan as a political commentator--I hope she eventually shows up on AC360.

TRUTHFULLY, I THINK SACRED DAUGHTER WOULD LIKE TO SEE BANNON DISAPPEAR. IF HE DOES GO, SHE WAS
THE ONE WHO WAS THE DECIDING FACTOR. TRUMP MAY SAY HE IS THE BOSS AND HE'S THE DECIDER, BUT IF YOU KNOW ZERO ABOUT EVERY ISSUE, WHAT CAN YOU DECIDE ABOUT?
INTERESTING ARTICLE IN WAPO YESTERDAY MADE BY A FOREIGN AMBASSADOR, WHO WAS AT A MEETING WITH
MERKEL OR THE JAPANESE MINISTER. HE REMAINED ANONYMOUS, BUT HE SAID SO FAR, TRUMP NEVER STARTS
THE CONVERSATION ABROAD. HE HAS NO AGENDA. THE FOREIGN DIGNITARY, WHOEVER THAT IS AT THE MOMENT, HAS TO BEGIN. "HE JUST SITS THERE, LOOKS AROUND, AND NODS." GEE, I FEEL BETTER ALREADY. IN OTHER WORDS, TRUMP HAS THIS BLANK EXPRESSION WHEREVER HE GOES....AND THIS IS OUR LEADER! AND ANDERSON SPENDS HOURS ANALYZING HIS EVERY MOVE....ANDERSON, HE STARES AND IS BLANK. END OF STORY.

I'm not sure Ivanka has much real influence on Trump, he quietly signed some legislation that will gut some services Planned Parenthood provides (preventive health care, birth control, pregnancy tests) that are government funded--I thought Ivanka had some concerns about PP and women's issues. Where was she on this?

I AGREE. IVANKA IS COMPLICIT. SHE REALLY DOESN'T CARE ABOUT WOMEN'S ISSUES OR THE POOR. BUT SHE DOES HAVE INFLUENCE WHEN SHE CARES ENOUGH AND IF IT IS A STAND OFF BETWEEN HER HUBBY AND
STEVE BANNON, GUESS WHO'S GOING?
ACCORDING TO THE TIMES, STEVE BANNON AND JARED KUSHNER DO NOT SEE EYE TO EYE. TRUMP TOLD THEM BOTH TO WORK IT OUT. WE KNOW THEY WOULDN'T. I'D FEEL SAFER IF BANNON WERE OUT OF THE PICTURE.
HE HAS RACIST WRITTEN ALL OVER HIM.
