Friday's opening chyron was very long "Wash. Post: Sessions Discussed Campaign-Related Issues With Russian Amb. Per U.S. Intercepts Of Russian Discussions". It was two lines squeezed into the normal chyron space. Anderson gave an overview and showed clips of past comments & explanations & denials by Sessions. An interview with Adam Entous of the Washington Post provided more details and was briefly interrupted by a statement from the spokeswoman of the Dept. of Justice which pretty much took Sessions' side. After a few more questions for Entous, Anderson introduced a panel of 5 and I switched to Hayes.
The first segment seems to have lasted almost a half-hour.

The second segment had the same chyron and the same panel members. I switched back and forth between Anderson and the Hayes sub. At 360 later the subject changed to "Manafort, Trump Jr. Reach Senate Deal To Avoid Public Hearing". Manu Raju and the details and then Dana Bash, Entous, Carl Bernstein and a new guy were the panel.

The last part of the first hour covered Sean Spicer's resignation as WH Press Secretary. To quote Nancy Pelosi, when she was asked about this, "I don't even care." However I did enjoy the clip of new WH Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci stating so emphatically his love for Trump that he was practically drooling. Anderson talked to Sara Murray for more of the yadda yadda and then a panel of 5 discussed. I didn't stay for the panel discussion.
Not sure if Anderson had a commercial break before the start of the second hour but the topic was the same as the start of the first hour.

Too many panel discussions but at least Jeffrey Lord wasn't there.

LOVE IT WHEN CARL BERNSTEIN IS ON 360'S PANEL. HE TELLS IT LIKE HE SEES IT...AND HE SEES DISASTER NO MATTER WHO THE PRESS SECRETARY IS. HE SAID THAT TRUMP IS UNDERMINING THE JUSTICE DEPT. BY MAKING FALSE ACCUSATIONS ABOUT THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY.
BRAIN STELTER, LATER TOLD DON LEMON, THAT IT DOES NOT MATTER WHO IS PRESS SECRETARY. THIS ADMINISTRATION IS IN CHAOS AND APRIL RYAN SEEMED TO AGREE. THEY BOTH EXPECT JEFF SESSIONS TO RESIGN FOR LYING UNDER OATH ABOUT THE RUSSIAN PROBE. SESSIONS DENIED KNOWLEDGE OF ANY INTERACTIONS WITH ANY RUSSIANS ON 3 SEPARATE OCCASIONS. THE WAPO SAYS HE IS LYING.
DONALD JR. WILL SUBMIT ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION TO ROBERT MUELLER, BUT HE WILL NOT APPEAR IN PUBLIC TO DO SO.
THE WASHINGTON POST IS REPORTING THAT PRESIDENT BOGUS WILL NEVER ESTABLISH POPULARITY WITH MOST OF THE PUBLIC, SIMPLY BECAUSE HE APPEARS TO BE "HIDING SOMETHING."

Yes, Trump is the problem and nothing can fix it but the Republicans are going to back him no matter what--they may not be scared of him, but they are afraid of his supporters. As Jaanza said, Anthony Scaramucci went way overboard expressing his love for the orange clown. It's ridiculous that anyone would choose to work for someone who demands to be praised every second of the day but really doesn't deserve a sliver of it. I agree with Cappy about Carl Bernstein--he always brings the panels back around to the central issue of Trump being a real threat to our democracy when they go off on a tangent about his 'style'. I was glad to see Maria Cardona on the show and as usual, she gave strong push back against the conservative pundits on the panel.

Thanks for the heads-up on AC's guest spots this week.

AT SOME POINT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS TO DECIDE IF THEY WANT TO SUPPORT A PERSON WHO IS A RUSSIAN OPERATIVE, AND THIS WILL BE PROVEN, AND THEY WILL, SLOWLY BACK AWAY FROM TRUMP.
PRESIDENT BOGUS IS A LIABILITY AND HIS SUPPORT WILL DWINDLE IF HE COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSIANS. NO WANTS "A SPY" AS PRESIDENT, AND IF THEY DO, THEN LET THEM GO TO MOSCOW AND WORK UNDERCOVER.
NIXON HAD SUPPORTERS TO THE VERY END AS WELL. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE NEO NAZIS AND HATERS.
BOGUS ALWAYS RETURNS TO THE STATES THAT GOT HIM ELECTED. HE STAYS FAR AWAY FROM BOTH COASTS. VETERANS PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN "GETTING TRUMP ELECTED AND KEEPING HIM IN OFFICE." NO VETERAN, WHO FOUGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY WILL SUPPORT SOMEONE WHO IS WORKING HAND AND HAND WITH THE ENEMY. WHEN TRUMP TRULY BECOMES A LIABILITY, THE REPUBLICANS WILL HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO "DUMP HIM."THEY WANT SOMEONE WHO "HAS THEIR BACKS."THEIR BIGGEST CONCERN IS "GETTING REELECTED." ALL YOU NEED ARE A FEW GOOD REPUBLICANS. JUST LIKE HEALTH CARE. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SELL OUTS AND THEN THERE ARE THOSE, LIKE NANCY COLLINS OF MAINE, WHO WILL WANT THE TRUTH.

ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI MAY "LOVE THE GUY," NOW BUT LET'S GIVE HIM ANOTHER 6 MONTHS. IN FACT LET'S GIVE HIM ANOTHER 6 WEEKS OR, WHAT TIME IS IT NOW?
THE FACT REMAINS THAT DONALD J TRUMP IS AN IMPOSSIBLE PERSON TO REPRESENT, ESPECIALLY WHEN HE DISPLAYS MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES AND EACH ONE IS EQUALLY OBNOXIOUS.

FROM WAPO BEST NEWS OF THE DAY: IF BOGUS DOESN'T SIGN RUSSIAN SANCTIONS BILL AND VETOES IT, CONGRESS WILL OVERRIDE THAT VETO. GOOD. NOW THERE'S A START....OVERRIDE ALL TRUMP'S VETOES.
ALSO GOOD: SCARAMUCCI MAKING SNIDE REMAKES ABOUT SANDERS HAIR AND MAKE-UP. NO SHE'S NOT YOUR TYPICAL TRUMP GIRL, BROAD SHOULDERED, HUGE, AND OPINIONATED. OUCH!

NY TIMES FRONT PAGE: SUPPORT FOR TRUMP IS STARTING TO CRACK. TODAY'S HEADLINE ON LINE.
AND IS IT NO WONDER.
DID WE REALLY THINK KUSHNER WOULD SAY: YES I COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSIANS. WE NEED TO HEAR HIM STATE THIS UNDER OATH IN PUBLIC. WHY IS THIS A SECRET? AND LET'S NOT FORGET DONALD JR.
THE WORD COLLUDE MEANS TO COINCIDE WITH. WHY IS IT THAT NO ONE IS HOLDING ANYONE ACCOUNTABLE FOR GOING TO THE MEETING WITH THE ENEMY? IT DOES NOT MATTER THAT NOTHING WAS ACCOMPLISHED. THE TRUMP TEAM WANTED TO "COLLUDE"AND WENT WITH THAT "INTENTION."
WHAT IS IT ABOUT THIS WORD THAT MAKES IT SO HARD FOR ANCHORS AND JOURNALISTS TO SAY: "THIS MEETING WAS AN ATTEMPT TO COLLUDE." WHILE I AM NOT AN ATTORNEY, COMMON SENSE TELLS ME, THAT RESEARCHERS COULD HAVE "DUG UP MORE DIRT ON HILLARY," IF IN FACT, THIS MEETING WAS "JUST ABOUT HILLARY. YOU DON'T NEED RUSSIAN OPERATIVES TO LORE YOU, UNLESS OF COURSE YOU PUT OUT "FEELERS BEFORE HAND." THEY SHOULD ALL BE INDICTED.....ALONG WITH THEIR BOSS!
CARL BERNSTEIN WOULD SAY THIS, BUT ANDERSON COOPER WOULDN'T.
