(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The image President Trump presented in the photo of his return to the White House after treatment for the coronavirus at Walter Reed Medical Center introduced; scenes shown from the White House Truman balcony with Trump giving the thumbs up sign; details given about his rare medical treatment, the questions about when he contracted the virus, how his events matter to the people in attendance. [Outside the hospital earlier today, president's physician Dr. Sean CONLEY - refuses to answer certain questions.] The questions about his testing when he was on several rallies & the debate stage with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, what Trump told the people about not being afraid of COVID, the fate of others with the virus with White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany & others having tested positive reviewed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jim Acosta) This surreal photo op at the White House discussed; scenes shown of Trump getting off the helicopter, on the balcony taking off his mask while he still has the virus & plans to walk around without a mask because there is a different reality inside the White House.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's "New York Times" reporter Maggie Haberman, Sanjay Gupta, Gloria Borger & former CDC dir. Thomas Frieden about Trump & the coronavirus; scenes shown of Trump getting off the helicopter, on the balcony. [GUPTA, HABERMAN, FRIEDEN, BORGER - offer views on how he should be in isolation: he is reckless, how Trump wants to show he has beaten the virus, how people in the White House are freaking out as the president is pretending nothing has happened, on the extent of the coronavirus, which cannot be underestimated, the stunning video & his explanation of his "risk" as a leader who has sacrificed, on the messages being projected: as a warrior beating the coronavirus.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Acosta, Jim
