Anderson Cooper 360 on Thursday, May 11, 2017


Anderson Cooper anchored AC360 in the 8pm and 9pmET hours from CNN's Washington, D.C. Bureau.  During the 8pm hour there was a mash-up of Trump staff using talking points that were then thrown under the bus today during Trump's interview with Lester Holt:

During Tuesday night's AC360, during his interview with KellyAnne Conway, we were treated to one of Anderson's classic eye rolls.   Both The Daily Show and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert had a little fun with the clip on their Wednesday night programs:

BOTH KELLYANNE AND THE VP ARE NOT IN THE KNOW. TRUMP CHANGES HIS MIND TO SUIT HIS WHIMS AND TODAY HE TOLD LESTER HOLT THAT IT WAS HIS IDEA TO FIRE COMEY, AND HE DID NOT GO BY ANYONE'S RECOMMENDATION. OF COURSE IT WAS. TRUMP KNOWS EVERYTHING AND ONLY HE COMMANDS HIMSELF. NO ONE IS GOING TO TELL HIM WHAT TO DO...FOOL THAT HE IS. AND HE IS TRULY SURPRISED BY ALL THE FUSS.
COMEY ALLEGEDLY TOLD HIM, AT DINNER, THAT HE WAS NOT UNDER INVESTIGATION, OR A TARGET IN FBI LINGO, AND THEN AGAIN IN TWO PHONE CALLS. COULD TRUMP REPRODUCE THESE TWO PHONE CALLS? WERE THEY RECORDED? NO ONE HAS ASKED BUT WE KNOW ONE THING FOR SURE. TRUMP IS THE LIAR IN CHIEF.
IT WOULD MAKE GREAT TELEVISION IF COMEY WAS NOW CALLED TO TESTIFY IF HE EVER SAID WHAT TRUMP SAID HE SAID. THINK OF ALL THE AGHAST PANELISTS. AND THEN THINK OF THE RATINGS.
MEAN WHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH, NOTHING LEGISLATIVE IS BEING ACCOMPLISHED.
TRUMP IS BIDING HIS TIME AND THE PRESS IS WAITING TO POUNCE. WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE SUSPENSE.
QUESTION: HAS SEAN SPICER BEEN FIRED OR IS HE STILL SUPPOSEDLY HIDING IN THE BUSHES?
THE PRESS HAS A NEW PRESS SECRETARY WHO LOOKS AS IF SHE COULD THROW THE WHOLE FIRST ROW OF REPORTERS OVER WITH ONE HAND TIED BEHIND HER BACK.

Ah, I wish Comey was able to talk about what actually went down during that dinner with Trump--I'm betting the orange clown was lying because that's just what he does. Trump thought he could get rid of Comey and then continue enacting the GOP's horrifying agenda but he's just made more problems for himself and his hapless administration--the longer he stays tied up in scandal and controversy, the less damage the GOP can do with their rotten policies. The executive order he signed about voting fraud and voter suppression is just a tool (and a distraction) the GOP can use to suppress MORE voters, anyone who's followed what the right has done to make voting more difficult for left leaning citizens knows exactly what Trump and his evil pals are up to.

Anderson said something about how crucial it is for citizens to be able to trust what their president says--no chance of that ever happening with Trump--his and his administration's credibility is totally shot--you simply can't believe anything they say.

I agree with Cappy, Trump's temp Press Sec Sarah Huckabee Sanders seems even nastier and tougher than Spicey. Spicey had a meltdown in the WH bushes, but apparently he's all better now. It wouldn't surprise me if one day Trump's entire WH staff just decided to quit--it must be a nightmare having to work for him and humiliate yourself every day trying to straighten out his lies--but I don't feel sorry for them since they chose to work for a monster.

Very unprofessional and sexist for AC to roll his eyes. You bet if someone did that to Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton or any other dem female spokesperson there would be more outrage. AC used to be pretty objective to a degree but CNN has defintely dragged him down.. that and outside influence. Rolling eyes is just very unprofessional for a serious newsman...

HOW CAN ANYONE SERIOUSLY EQUATE MICHELLE OBAMA OR HILLARY CLINTON WITH KELLYANNE SPIN? MICHELLE AND HILLARY WENT TO IVY LEAGUE SCHOOLS THAT REQUIRE BRAINS, SOMETHING K A NEVER HAD.
YES, SHE DESERVES AN EYE ROLL AND THEN SHE SHOULD BE YANKED RIGHT OFF THE STAGE. NONE OF TRUMP'S SPOKE'S PEOPLE HAVE ANY CREDIBILITY, BUT THAN IF SOME OF THE PUBLIC WANTS TO BELIEVE
THE MADE UP SPIN CYCLE OBTAINED FROM THE CRYPT, THAN SHE SHOULD EXPECT THOSE THAT ARE CREDIBLE, LIKE ANDERSON, TO MAKE FUN OF HER.
IF ENOUGH MEDIA FIGURES ROLL THEIR EYES IN UTTER DISMAY, MAYBE KELLYANNE WILL PACK UP HER THINGS, CALL IT A DAY, AND LEAVE DC FOR GOOD. DON'T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON YOUR WAY OUT.
