More distractions (cooking, "Pointless" and others) during Monday's 360 but here's what I saw:

Anderson began with "Russia Meeting Answers Raises Fresh Questions" regarding Trump Jr.'s meeting with the Russian lawyer and various false and contradictory statements that were made to explain it. Included in the overview was a collection of clips of several GOP politicians denying they would meet with Russians to get dirt on their election opponents. Anderson's talk with Pamela Brown focused on the still-mysterious 8th person at that meeting and the numerous contradictions made when defending it. Distractions started here but I did see that Anderson interviewed Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR) about this whole matter.
I had to leave for the kitchen for a few minutes; when I got back there was a panel of 5 including Jeffrey Lord so I switched to Hayes.

"Russian Official: "Almost Deal" For Return Of Compounds" - Russia had upscale compounds, one in Maryland and one on Long Island in NY, that Obama shut down because of the election hacking. The Russians want them back. Anderson talked to Michelle Kosinski on this matter. There was a report on "Calls For Kushner To Lose Security Clearance" and then Anderson had Michael Carpenter and a guy named Larssen on to discuss "Was Trump Jr. Meeting Straight Out Of Russian Spy Playbook?".

My favorite segment was the one covering Trump's "Made In America" proclamation and how many of the Trump products are made in foreign countries. Randi Kaye had a good report on this and Anderson's Q&A with Drew Harwell of the Washington Post on the details and the hypocrisy was very good. The Q&A included Ivanka trying to be a champion for women while there are so many women in horrible sweatshops making her products.

Next up was "GOP Healthcare Bill Lacks Support To Proceed", Ryan Nobles had the info on how bad the bill was, McConnell's attempts to get enough votes, whether there will be more hearings and the delay until Sen. McCain comes back from his surgery. Anderson spent a couple minutes having Sanjay Gupta talk about McCain's surgery (blood clot near his eye) and when he'll likely be back to Congress.

The sort of last segment of the first hour was on Justine Ruszczyk, an Australian woman killed by Minneapolis police after she called 911. This was on Saturday night and details on exactly what happened are still murky. Anderson spoke with Ryan Young, in Minneapolis near where the shooting happened, regarding the still unanswered questions, the memorial and the outrage.
Just like Friday's show, Monday's 360 went right into the second hour (reporting on Trump Jr.'s Russia meeting) without a commercial break. However, just like Friday it didn't stop me from watching Maddow.

I'm glad Anderson had a productive weekend in Paris and my congratulations to Smarkes for getting to meet Anderson at a rather swanky restaurant.

MICH MCCONNELL IS AN OLD F..T. HE'D RATHER PASS A REPEAL AND NO REPLACEMENT IN HEALTHCARE
THAN HAVE THE BILL GO DOWN. NICE. SO THOSE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED PRESIDENT BOGUS WILL HAVE ZERO HEALTH CARE WITH NO REPLACEMENT.
IF THIS WERE EUROPE, OUR BOGUS PRESIDENT AND ALL HIS MERRY MAKERS AS WELL AS THE GOP, WOULD HAVE BEEN OVER THROWN. AND A NEW PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE BEEN ELECTED. REPEAL AND NO REPLACEMENT?? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
NOW WE SEE THERE IS ONE MAJOR FLAW IN OUR DEMOCRACY, AND OUR CONSTITUTION, WHICH NEEDS TO BE AMENDED, TO MEET THE CHALLENGES OF TODAY. IT MIGHT BE NICE IF THE ELECTORATE WERE A LITTLE MORE EDUCATED WHEN THEY WENT TO THE VOTING BOOTH. NOBODY CARES UNTIL IT AFFECTS THEM DIRECTLY. MAYBE "REPEAL AND REPLACE" WOULD BE A GOOD, WELL DESERVED LESSON FOR ALL THOSE "TRUMP SUPPORTERS!"

THANK YOU JAANZA FOR YOUR UPDATE ABOUT THE COMPOUNDS. I DID KNOW THIS BECAUSE I CAN'T STAND ANY MORE PANEL DISCUSSIONS. BOGUS SNEEZES AND AC IS READY TO ANALYZE IT. WHEN DID HE SNEEZE?
WHY DID HE SNEEZE? DID HE HAVE A COLD OR A COUGH WHEN HE DID IT? DO YOU THINK HE WILL GET SICKER? (PLEASE GOD). BUT WHAT IF HE GETS BETTER?
NANCY PELOSI SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF. SHE SHOULD CALL FOR TRUMPS RESIGNATION. NOW!
THE COMPOUNDS ARE PROOF THERE WAS COLLUSION. PERIOD.
THE FACT IS IN THE ATTEMPT. (I DID TAKE PUBLIC SCHOOL LAW 101) WHICH IS MORE THAN JEFF LORD
DID. WE ARE NOT FOOLS NANCY AND WHEN YOU CALL FOR TRUMP'S RESIGNATION, HANG UP YOUR GAVEL.
