I wasn't in the mood to watch news but Monday's 360 started with falling poll numbers for Trump.
His latest numbers according to a CNN poll are 38% approve and 56% disapprove of the job he's doing. After Anderson's overview it was David Challian at the Magic Wall instead of John King. Challian had more poll results and more number crunching like 78% do not trust "what they hear from the White House". Then Anderson went on about Trump's tweet while the chyron was "Earning Distrust One Tweet At A Time". A panel of 4 started - Alice Stewart, Christine Quinn, Matt Lewis and Libby Phillips - and later Challian joined in. Although it was good to see a non-massive panel filled with people who didn't make me want to rip my ears off, I didn't pay close attention to the discussion.

Anderson covered Trump's many tweets today, a lot of them dissing Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). Jim Acosta had the details of Trump slamming Blumenthal for not going to Vietnam even though he was in the military at the time. Acosta of course pointed out that Trump got 5 deferments during the Vietnam War, one of them of the mysterious and seemingly temporary bone spurs. He and Anderson also talked about Trump's tweets criticizing the media. After Acosta there was more panel discussion. I did hear Quinn state Trump was taking more vacation time than Obama's first year. However, I wandered over to Hayes covering Mueller and the Russia investigation.

Anderson reviewed the poll numbers and introduced Dana Loesch. The start of the Loesch Q&A had comments on the poll numbers, the GOP base, the base being more mad at Congress than Trump for nothing getting done and more babble babble babble.

North Korea got its own segment. Anderson talked about the new sanctions, Kim Jong Un's angry response, missiles, nuclear capabilities and Tillerman trying to work something out with South Korea and China. The best part of the show, Anderson's chat with Fareed Zakaria covered all this plus a promo for his special coming up next "How Trump Won".

Pence has his panties in a pickle over a New York Times story stating he looks like he's already campaigning for a Presidential run in 2020. Dana Bash and David Challian had the yadda yadda.

The last minute of the show had another promo and clip for "How Trump Won".

THIS IS WHY I SAY CNN VOTED FOR TRUMP AND MADE HIM PRESIDENT.
THIS WAS A SLOW NEWS DAY SO WHAT DID CNN DO? THEY AIRED A SPECIAL ON HOW TRUMP BECAME PRESIDENT.
TRUMP BECAME PRESIDENT BECAUSE CABLE IS OBSESSED WITH HIM AND HE KNOWS IT.
HE DOESN'T NEED A PUBLICIST. HE HAS ONE....ALL THREE CABLE NEWS NETWORKS 24/7 AIRING EVERYTHING TRUMP. STOP DOING THIS OR I WILL NOT WATCH YOU!!

disappointed to see Dana Loesch on today and treated like a regular pundit. I know Anderson got a lot of angry tweets about it but I don't think he is active on twitter (for valid reasons) and that's a pity because he needed to hear the criticism.

Dana Loesch is a rotten racist and and all round despicable person who should never have a platform on CNN--there was a time when AC360 dropped her altogether as a guest but in keeping with their need to foist some of the most repulsive human beings on earth on their viewers, they brought her back. I was happy to see Charles Blow and Bakari Sellars back on 360 last week but I'd also like to see Angela Rye on the show again--she's a truth teller who doesn't suffer fools like Loesch gladly.

APRIL RYAN IS ANOTHER PERSON I'D LIKE TO SEE MORE OF AS A PANEL MEMBER OR CONSULTANT.
SHE IS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND ARTICULATE AND IS CRITICAL OF THIS ADMINISTRATION, AND FOR GOOD REASON. SEAN SPICER ACCUSED HER OF "SHAKING HER HEAD" AT HIM. THERE IS SO MUCH ABOUT THIS ADMINISTRATION THAT HAS FLOWN UNDER THE RADAR. HILLARY NEVER WOULD HAVE GOTTEN AWAY WITH HALF THE "CRAZY, CRIMINALITY, THAT BOGUS HAS GOTTEN AWAY WITH.
HILLARY WAS SEEN RECENTLY AT A WEDDING WITH BILL. BILL LOOKED WELL. HILLARY WAS DRESSED NICELY, BUT YOU COULD TELL SHE WAS STILL "SHELL SHOCKED." SHE'S LOOKED BETTER IN THE PAST.
BUT GLAD TO SEE SHE'S UP AND ABOUT AND GETTING OUT. EVERYWHERE SHE GOES, THEATER, ETC., SHE GETS STANDING OVATIONS.

@Cappy, I always look forward to April Ryan's appearances on 360.

Hillary Clinton is a very strong woman but it still has to sting knowing that she 'lost' to a foolish, lazy, ignorant orange clown of a 'man'. It's all so unfair.
