[On Fox, TRUMP - says he gives himself an A+ as president, how you can't impeach someone who did a great job, about "flipping," which should be outlawed, how Paul Manafort went through so much.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen, Dan Rather & Carl Bernstein about Trump. [In studio, RATHER - offers views on the Trump presidency as theater of the absurd, how the Manafort verdict & Cohen plea put Trump in a more dangerous place, how it is too soon to talk about impeachment.] [GERGEN - offers views on how it is offensive to have a president undermining while special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller is at work in the courtroom, on immunity for publisher David Pecker.] [BERNSTEIN - offers views on the "instinctive lawlessness" of this president: people are now seeing the real Trump: authoritarianism.]
