Anderson was at the Brandenburg Gate and John Berman was at the anchor's desk. Here's what I saw on Friday's 360:

- Steve Bannon is out as Trump's adviser/strategist and is back at Breitbart. Berman talked to Jim Acosta, Tom Foreman had a profile of Bannon and Joshua Green and Maggie Haberman provided analysis.

- Carl Icahn has quit as Trump adviser but the panel - Green, Haberman, Ted Martin and Jen Psaki - mostly talked about Bannon and various Bannon tangents.

- Bannon at Breitbart report and Berman's interview with Raheem Kassam, the Breitbart London editor.

- Trump adviser Sebastian Gorka may also be on the chopping block; Drew Griffin report on Gorka's past and his White House role.

- Berman interview with Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer about his decision to take down Confederate statues, the events of the past week and his views on Trump.

Instead of the scheduled CNN Special on "Trump and Twitter", 360 got a second hour. I hope Berman took a minute to report on the "Spartacus" episode in Durham NC today for the woman arrested for pulling down a Confederate statue in that city earlier this week. If you haven't heard of it yet, Google it, it's kind of awesome.

WHILE THE FIRING OF STEVE BANNON WAS NECESSARY, IT MAY NOT BRING THE CHANGE THAT IS NEEDED IN THIS ADMINISTRATION. EVEN THOUGH BANNON'S RESIGNATION PREDATED CHARLOTTESVILLE, ACCORDING TO SOURCES FROM CNN, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT IT COINCIDED WITH THE HORRID EVENTS THAT TOOK PLACE LAST WEEKEND. YES, BANNON WAS TRUMP'S CHIEF ADVISER, AND HE IS OFFICIALLY GONE, BUT HE STILL HAS INFLUENCE BEYOND HIS DUTIES AT THE WHITE HOUSE.
AS THE "MOOCH" SO APTLY PUT IT, "THE FISH STINKS FROM THE HEAD DOWN." THAT IS THIS ADMINISTRATION'S MAIN PROBLEM AND UNTIL BOGUS IS FORCED TO RESIGN OR IS IMPEACHED, THERE WILL BE NO REPUBLICAN AGENDA PUT FORTH.
BOGUS LOST HIS OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE AMENDS IN HIS REMARKS ON RACE, AND IN SO DOING, HE STIRRED THE POT EVEN MORE. IT IS HARD TO REGAIN CREDIBILITY ONCE IT IS LOST AND BOGUS HAS REACHED A NEW LOW, EVEN FOR HIM. WE DON'T LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAYS BECAUSE IT IS HOLLOW. WE LISTEN TO SEE A NEW SPECTACLE AND BOGUS NEVER DISAPPOINTS.

CNN'S BROOKE BALDWIN HAS A LIST OF WHAT TRUMP HAS 'ACCOMPLISHED' IN THE LAST FOUR WEEKS AND IT IS QUITE AMUSING.....IF YOU NEED TO LAUGH, AND WE ALL DO, IT IS ON HUFFPOST.
ALLOW ME TO JUST SAY, IT IS ALL IN THE NEGATIVE. SHE ENDS WITH HEATHER HEYER'S MOTHER, THE MOTHER OF THE SLAIN VICTIM, WHO REFUSED TO SPEAK TO THE PRESIDENT....WHICH IS A NEW LOW FOR ANYBODY.

IVANKA TRUMP SHOULD NOT BE CRITICIZED FOR HER LATEST TWEET REGARDING BARCELONA.
WE DID NOT ELECT HER AND SHE IS NOT AN ELECTED OFFICIAL EVEN THOUGH SHE MAY SERVE HER FATHER IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY. THIS WAS NOT HER DECISION. IT WAS HER FATHERS.
I AM NOT A FAN OF IVANKA TRUMP, BUT WHATEVER SHE DOES OR DOES NOT DO, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PUBLIC'S PERCEPTION OF HER. SHE WAS RIGHT TO DENOUNCE BARCELONA AND CALL OUT THE TERRORISTS.
WHERE WAS SHE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE? WE DON'T KNOW, BUT SHE DID SPEAK OUT SOME DAYS LATER AND CONDEMNED THE WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND THEIR INTOLERANCE, BIGOTRY, AND VIOLENCE.
AS LONG AS SHE SERVES AT HER FATHER'S DIGRESSION, SHE NEEDS ONLY TO ANSWER TO HIM. NOT THE PUBLIC, AND SO FAR, IMHO, SHE HAS DONE IT GRACEFULLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. WHICH IS MORE THAN I
CAN SAY FOR HER FATHER.
