I was six minutes late to Monday's 360. The chyron was "Friend: Trump Is Considering "Terminating" Mueller" and Anderson was had a panel of 7 up and running. Robert Mueller is the Special Counsel investigating Trump's ties to Russia. I switched to Hayes who was covering the same topic (his chyron stated "Report" instead of "Friend") but was talking to Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA).

The same topic started the second segment; Anderson gave a short overview and the panel started again. I didn't watch.

Next Anderson talked to Manu Raju about the NSA Director meeting with the Senate Intelligence Committee, Trump trying to "tamp down" investigations, Comey's past testimony and Jeff Sessions' upcoming testimony. Then it was the same panel again. Meanwhile Hayes talked to Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) about the "secret" GOP healthcare bill which the GOP will not release a draft of.

The fourth 360 segment covered the lawsuit against Trump for violating the Constitution's emoluments clause - i.e. accepting foreign money because he has not divested himself from his businesses. Anderson interviewed the two Attorney Generals who brought the lawsuit: Karl Racine of the District of Columbia and Brian Frosh of Maryland.

My favorite segment was the last covering "Trump's Praise-Filled Cabinet Meeting". There were several clips from this "All hail Trump!" meeting and then a discussion with David Axelrod and Mike Rogers. Axelrod said, "It's not unusual if you live in North Korea." Rogers said it was 'not so unusual but it was clumsily done'. They also talked about it all being pseudo-loyalty oaths and if it was a pre-counterpunch to whatever might come out during the Senate hearing with Sessions tomorrow.

No Jeff Lord or Kaleigh McEnany today. Nonetheless, seven pundits on a panel just looks ridiculous when over on MSNBC Hayes was talking to members of Congress and Senators (he also interviewed Sen. Whitehouse) and never more than two pundits at a time. Maybe Anderson covered the GOP/Trumpcare bill in the second hour?

I SO HOPE CNN'S RATINGS TANKED WITH THAT "OLD FART" TESTIFYING BEFORE CONGRESS," UNDER OATH.
HE TOLD US ABSOLUTELY NOTHING....EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T LISTEN. CAN'T STAND THE SIGHT OF ANY OF TRUMP'S SURROGATES. LIARS ALL OF THEM.
I WILL LISTEN WHEN TRUMP TESTIFIES AND HE WILL HAVE TOO, SOONER OR LATER.
CAN'T STAND THAT JASON, A TRUMP SURROGATE ON THE 360 PANEL. HE ALWAYS LOOKS CONFUSED AND DOESN'T SEEM TO KNOW WHERE HE IS....YOU'RE ON ANDERSON COOPER'S PANEL OF EIGHTY. HE ALWAYS GETS THAT DISTURBED LOOK ON HIS FACE AND CRINKLED FOREHEAD WHEN THE OTHER PANEL MEMBERS SAY SOMETHING THAT IS ACTUALLY PLAUSIBLE AND WORTH HEARING, LIKE TRUMP IS A DUMB SOB.
CARL BERNSTEIN IS ALWAYS GOOD AND I DO LOVE LISTENING TO HIM. HE IS ONE PERSON WHO CONTINUALLY
KNOWS WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT AND HE ACTUALLY USED THE WORD IMPEACHMENT.
IF TRUMP FIRES ANOTHER PERSON LIKE MUELLER, NANCY PELOSI MUST START THE IMPEACHMENT PROCESS. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR "WE MUST HAVE ALL THE FACTS." LADY, WE DO. YOU'RE PRESIDENT OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE AND NO ONE WANTS TO BRING CHARGES, SO YOU, HAVE TO PUT YOUR BIG GIRL PANTS ON AND START THE PROCEDURE ROLLING. TRUMP IS NOT FIT TO BE PRESIDENT AND YOU KNOW IT SO STOP WITH THE DEMOCRATIC NONSENSE AND GAMES OR RESIGN.
AND ANDERSON, STOP READING THE TELEPROMPTER. DO SOME WORK. YOU'RE GETTING PAID BIG BUCKS TO CALL ON PEOPLE WHO ARE SIMPLETONS.....EXCEPT FOR A FEW, LIKE CHRISTINE QUINN AND DAVID GERGEN. DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND STOP THE MUMBLING. IT IS REALLY BORING.

Anderson was pretty calm for someone who's never gone skydiving before--there were a few giggles but he kept his usual cool demeanor.

@Cappy, seems like all of the Trump surrogates are unwatchable. I don't like Jason either.
