[TRUMP - calls the dishonest media a disgrace while we are getting things done & the "New York Times" is failing & apologized when we won & we have done more than anyone is less than two years.] Two Trump tweets quoted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Earlier discussion held with former Senator John Kerry, author of a new book "Every Day is Extra," about this "New York Times" op-ed. [KERRY - offerS views on how this is extraordinary, if you add this to what is in Bob Woodward's book; the president has a serious problem with truth & the presidency is off the rails, how it is a genuine constitutional crisis with Republicans defending party, that Trump never held Russian President Vladimir Putin accountable: this is dangerous, that our institutions are very strong: they need to stand up through elected leaders, why it is more dangerous now than in the Vietnam War because the president is not fit to hold office & leaders need to lead now.]
