ATA, big thanks for posting the 'Texas vs. SCOTUS' segment from Monday. It was a great segment and I caught a few details I mised the first time.

Tuesday's 360 started with the escaped NY convicts again. There were new details released today on the escape and Richard Matt's death. That translated into two segments for this story, still on the front burner and still turned up high. I found out Hayes was covering NJ Gov. Chris Christie's Presidential bid announcement with analysis so that's what I watched.
When I checked back to 360, Anderson was talking to District Attorney Andrew Wylie about Matt and Sweat. I went back to Hayes, now reporting on Obama's 50%+ approval rating. How could Anderson miss that news?

Later, I got to 360's segment on 4th of July terror warnings already in progress. Anderson was talking to Ivan Perez. I didn't see much of the conversation but did the the Bulletin at the end of the segment.

The best segment was on Trump; partly because the guy is ridiculous and partly because of the terrific political discussion with John King, Gloria Borger and Jeffrey Toobin. They discussed Trump's animosity towards NBC, his lawsuit against Univision, his "facts", his impact on the GOP Presidential field and his validity as a candidate. If you didn't see it, ATA has posted it today and it's worth seeing.

Next up was a report from Dan Simon on the wildfires in Washington state and an interview with John Dominguez, who lost his home. I went back to Hayes.

Last up was a promo for the CNN special following 360, "I Married a Murderer"; nope, not interested. Was anyone interested and watched the whole thing?

It would be silly to believe that Anderson's an admirer of Donald Trump but he did say that Trump's blunt, brash, non-political style is refreshing and what some folks might be looking for now. AC made similar comments about Sarah Palin several years back but we all know how that turned out. I think AC might have a thing for non-traditional politicians or politicians who don't act like politicians. Trump isn't a politician to begin with. Perhaps there are voters who love loudmouth jerks and think that qualifies them to run the country, but President Obama has accomplished quite a lot in his years as president (some history making) without coming off like an obnoxious bully. I don't have a lot of faith that the American people WOULDN'T vote for Trump if he made it out of the primaries. Same goes for Chris Christie.

There was supposed to have been a follow-up report on the County clerk in Texas who was refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples but it didn't air--I would've preferred to see that report instead of the Drew Peterson piece and the wildfire out West.

Last night's show was really not all that good. It seemed choppy and rushed. I agree the best segment was on Trump. Say what you want about the guy he sure is entertaining! Lol I hope to see him in the debates. Describing him as a showman is an apt description. I guess I don't take him seriously is why I find him entertaining, but Trump is Trump. He's kinda funny, he's blunt, he says things that are so outrageous its actually funny, he won't be the nominee. He will probably drop out the race after second debate or depending upon his poll numbers, because they will eventually go down. But I say hang in there. The race just got more entertaining. Lol

Saw about as much as you did. I am so sick of the prison story that I finally sent CNN a tweet telling them enough. I did see the Trump segment and cringed at the thought of him as President.

The good thing about Trump being the race is that he's going to cause plenty of headaches for the Republican party for however long he lasts. Can't help but be amused by that.
