Charles Blow and Kirsten Powers were the only panelists who spoke the truth about what a disaster Trumpcare would be for average people--millions would be hurt just so our uncaring dingbat 'president' could get a 'win'.

Charles Blow was met with deafening silence from AC and the panel when he rightfully said that Steve Bannon and Breitbart's disgusting affiliation with neo-Nazis and white supremicists shouldn't be glossed over, normalized or ignored. Anderson and the others were not happy that Blow brought up the subject. We should be hearing MORE about this, not less.

@ARIES MOON: WE DON'T SEE THAT MUCH OF CHARLES BLOW BECAUSE AC KNOWS HE SHOULD ALLOW BLOW TO EXPAND ON HIS VIEWS, BUT HE PREFERS TO COVER HIMSELF, BY CUTTING HIM OFF. I PERSONALLY HATE IT WHEN SOMEONE SAYS SOMETHING PERTINENT AND AC REPLIES WITH, "WE'LL LEAVE IT THERE."
JON STEWART USED TO CRITICIZE CNN ALL THE TIME FOR "LEAVING IT THERE."
AC DOESN'T REALLY WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THERE ARE NEO-NAZIS IN THIS COUNTRY SO HE'D RATHER "LEAVE IT THERE." THAT IS PARTIALLY THE SUM TOTAL OF TRUMP'S BASE AND ANY OTHER SUB HUMAN ELEMENT STEVE BANNON CAN ROUND UP.
PERHAPS AC SHOULD SPEND A LITTLE MORE TIME IN THIS COUNTRY AND DEMAND TO SPEAK TO THE NEO-NAZIS AND HOW THEY ARE INFLUENCING TRUMP SUPPORTERS.
STEVE BANNON, ACCORDING TO TIME MAGAZINE, IS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY. THIS IS HIS AGENDA. PRESIDENT BOGUS IS THE PUPPET FOLLOWING THE GUY WHO ACTUALLY GOT HIM ELECTED. NICE.

I saw only about 20 minutes of Tuesday's 360 - roughly the last 20 of the first hour. The topic at that time was McConnell planning on a repeal-only bill on the ACA/Obamacare next week. A panel of 5 - David Gergen, Maggie Habermann, Kirsten Powers, Kenneth Cuccinelli and Matt Lewis discussed and the consensus seemed to be: McConnell's plan is a bad idea.

I enjoyed the last segment of the first hour; Anderson interviewed Joshua Green, author of "Devil's Bargain". The talk focused a lot on the Trump and Steve Bannon relationship but there was also other good stuff. One example is how early on Trump campaign officials knew they had to keep Trump focused and that was the genesis of "The Wall" campaign point. I've already looked at the book at Amazon and hope to pick up a cheap used copy soon.
The second hour started right away; that seems to be the norm now. The first topic of the second hour was the new revelation about a second Trump-Putin meeting at the G20.

YouTube has a great video from last night's 360 of Anderson lecturing Trump on taking responsibility for failures but so far I haven't seen the panel discussion with Charles Blow which AriesMoon referred to. I'll do some more checking.

WHAT A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES. THIS JUST SHOWS HOW USELESS CNN IS, ALONG WITH MSNBC AND FOX NEWS.
DIDN'T PRESIDENT BOGUS SAY DURING HIS CAMPAIGN, IN REFERENCE TO JOHN MC CAIN, THAT "HE LIKED HEROES WHO WEREN'T CAUGHT?" AND NOW THAT MC CAIN RECEIVED A TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS WITH BRAIN CANCER, POOR MAN, NO ONE IS EVEN MENTIONING IT!
THIS IS NOT DONE OUT OF RESPECT FOR MC CAIN. IT IS BEING DONE TO ELEVATE TRUMP. LET IT GO. DON'T REMIND BOGUS OF WHO HE REALLY IS....AN S O B.
YES, REMIND THE PUBLIC WHO THEY HAVE ELECTED AND WHO IS NOT FUNCTIONING AND WHO MUST BE ASKED TO RESIGN.
AND 360 SPENT TWO HOURS LAUGHING AND GIGGLING ABOUT WHO BOGUS THREATENED TO FIRE NEXT, BUT DID NOT ASK THE PERTINENT, MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION: WHEN WILL THE REPUBLICANS SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND ASK TRUMP TO RESIGN. DO YOU APPOINT ANOTHER SPECIAL PROSECUTOR IF MUELLER IS ASKED TO STEP DOWN? OBVIOUSLY TRUMP IS HIDING SOMETHING AND NOT DEALING WITH THE FUNCTIONING OF GOVERNMENT. YOU DON'T DO YOUR JOB, ORDINARILY, YOU'RE FIRED....HIS BASE IS ONLY 36%! ANCHORS, LIKE ANDERSON, SHOULD BE ONE STEP AHEAD OF THE STORY AND ASKING THIS QUESTION. NOT ASKING "PIN HEADS," ON A PANEL, SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? WHY IS HE ANGRY? DUH.
THE PRINT MEDIA IS DOING ALL THE WORK HERE.

@Cappy, I still recall when AC was asking Elizabeth Warren for proof that Steve Bannon had white supremicist leanings and she was shocked that AC was incapable of putting 2 and 2 together because the signs of Bannon's beliefs are all over Breitbart and the neo-Nazis love him and Trump. AC has said several times on 360 that he believes that it's become too easy to label someone a racist these days, as if people do it without genuine justification--I think he has a problem with that subject now even though he used to cover racial issues fairly often in the old days and his panels were more diverse on a nightly basis--now you see a person of color on the 360 panel only about once or twice a week and I find that odd. Jon Stewart was right about how inane it is for CNN anchors/reporters to use that 'we'll have to leave it there' line whenever the conversation gets heated or hits on some uncomfortable truths.
