Anderson Cooper posted the above to his Instagram account this morning, but tonight the very capable John Berman was in the AC360 anchor chair in both the 8pm and 9pmET hours.

Who is James Woods and why is he so obsessed with hating Anderson?

Here's what I saw John Berman cover on Wednesday's 360:

- "Trump Speaking Soon At Iowa Rally" plus Democrats wanting info on Jared Kushner's and Mike Flynn's security clearances and the GOP healthcare bill. Berman started talking to Jeff Zeleny who was at the Iowa rally. I checked on Hayes. When I came back CNN was broadcasting Trump's rally. MSNBC was not. Though I stayed with CNN long enough to see some kind of disturbance happen at the rally somewhere over Trump's right side, it was soon shouted down with chants of "USA" and Trump resumed his speech. I watched Hayes. When Hayes started a commercial break I went back to 360; Berman was talking to a panel which included Jeffrey Lord. Nope, back to Hayes.

- Berman talked to Manu Raju about Kusher's and Flynn's security clearances and there was a Michelle Kosinski report about the same "Unanswered Questions" Anderson outlined yesterday.
- More on Kushner, Flynn, security clearances and blackmail risks with an interview with Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA).

- Kushner, Flynn, security clearances and a panel of 4 or more (3 in studio and who knows how many via satellite)

- "WH Staffers Briefed Tonight On Senate Healthcare Bill" said the chyron; "Senate" should have been "GOP" and Berman did say that most of the Senate was "still in the dark" about what was in the bill. Ryan Nobles had the report and a short Q&A with Berman.

Berman previewed the start of the second hour: Kushner, Flynn and security clearances.

@Pragya - I don't know the answers to either question. I'm going to take the viewpoint that James Woods is a nobody and I that I shouldn't give a flying fig about what he thinks.

Great photo of Anderson and Gloria!

@jaanza

That's the right attitude to have :)

Didn't watch the rally, but from reports it was the usual obviating and lying and blaming the media that his cultists love. It's hard to stay optimistic in this country.

Oh and he attacked CNN again. At what point will Zucker lay off the Trump surrogates? What are they doing for CNN? They are losing their audience to MSNBC because of Lord and co. And they are the only network to have zero WH access and to have not got a trump interview. So what is the point of this pandering?

I remember Anderson saying Dems needed a strategy outside of Russia and Trump back in Feb and him getting a lot of flak for saying that. But he may have been right. And I think he was on the right track with covering Healthcare and immigration instead of non-stop Russia. But I guess falling ratings and the rise of Maddow convinced him to switch.

I have faith in Mueller and I hope he can find something there, but I think Dems and media need to focus on other issues, partly so Trump can stop playing the victim and have to answer for his terrible policies.

OF COURSE TRUMP DOES NOT HAVE ANY TAPES. HE'S TOO STUPID TO THINK OF TAPING THINGS IN THE FIRST PLACE AND IN THE SECOND, IF HE HAD TAPED COMEY, THE TAPES WOULD HAVE IMPLICATED HIM.
COMEY HAS NOTHING TO HIDE....TRUMP IS A BORN LIAR.

NANCY PELOSI NEEDS TO RESIGN. HER LEADERSHIP QUALITIES ARE POOR AND SO IS HER RECENT RECORD.
SHE IS NOT STRONG ARMED ENOUGH AND EVEN WITH THE HANDLING OF TRUMP SHE STILL SAYS, "WE NEED TO FIND OUT ALL THE FACTS."
LADY THE FACTS ARE IN: HE OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE MORE THAN ONCE AND HE TRIED TO STOP AN ON GOING INVESTIGATION OF THE FBI. WHAT MORE EVIDENCE DO YOU NEED? YOU HAVE PROVEN TO BE WEAK WILLED IN THE FACE OF INCREASING CHALLENGES FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, WHICH HAS A NO HOLES BARRED ATTITUDE. YOUR TYPE OF LEADERSHIP HAS COME AND GONE. YOU ARE FAR TOO "LADY LIKE."
THE DEMOCRATS NEED SOMEONE WHO ISN'T AFRAID TO BE POLITICALLY INCORRECT. YOU'RE NOT IT.
RESIGN AND SOMEONE STRONGER TAKE THE LEAD.
