    Great interview with Kellyanne but WOW YOU COULD HAVE NAILED HER AND DIDN’T! Once she said “I DON’T KNOW” about Quid pro quo….the next 2 questions SHOULD have been:
    (1) Why don’t you know? Have you asked Trump about it? Why not?
    (2) If you Kellyanne don’t know…then shouldn’t we investigate so you will know?

    Rick Santarum is a waste of time. I am ashamed he is Italian and Catholic . He is not reverent to your show.Hoe much love can you have for a terrible president. Replace him with a more educated rounded critic. Thank you

    What wonderful tributes you gave yesterday to Senator McCain, and I wondered if anyone thought of that wonderful poem written by a 19 year old pilot John Magee, called High Flight. It is on the tombstones of many veterans buried in Arlington National Cemetery, and perhaps it will be put on Senator McCain’s too. John Magee died in action shortly after writing that touching poem.

    I look forward to seeing you often on CNN – with many thanks for all you do.

    As a Canadian watching CNN, I can only congratulate Dana on the fine work she does.

    Also, very impressed on how she worked her way through the ranks at CNN to become almost a “news star”

    Keep well

    When a sitting president speaks at a campaign event, the political party to which he belongs must pay its legal share of the expenses. I am not sure how it is calculated.

    Does Donald Trump pay for these trips on Air Force One where he is on the 2020 campain

    trail They do not appear to be Presidential business

    HI Dana,
    It puzzles me why in asking the question, WHY is our First Lady remaining in the hospital a whole week?, that you had to then expound that there was somehow something wrong with that. OUCH! IF you had preceded it with I am sorry she has this condition but so glad she has had it taken care of. Also that it was found benign is wonderful news. That would have balanced the fact you had to ask the question as to length of time in the hospital. Intelligent people ASSUME her doctors are wise and she and they could make a decision for her to remain where her doctors would see her a few times a day for a few days. AFTER ALL she is our First Lady, so why not US all give her special consideration and let her OFF THE JOB for a week. The whole report this morning was so negative I don’t know if I can risk tuning any more. I Pray for you and all the staff, just as I pray for ALL Our government as only God knows the heart.
    LETS START LOVING and giving out something positive so we in America aren’t seen by the world as so evil minded and negative.

    I just watched you speaking with the height of hypocrisy about President Donald Trump & the Niger ambush. Did you say the same snide things about the supposed Commander in Chief Obama who was MIA when Benghazi happened & 4 brave Americans were killed? Did you obsess about why this attack happened even though Obama lied & said it was done in response to a video? Your hatred for Trump is only surpassed by your poor morals & charcter that most Americans feel for you. CNN is really a joke. Election night 11/8 was one of the most hilarious performances by a”news” team when Trump won…..priceless!

    One more thing. The Wall, a huge Beautiful edifice, which will not be as effective as Trump thinks it will, but I’m sure that he would love to have his name on it!! He could use that
    $30 billions dollars on our military instead.

    Hi Dana,
    I’m here watching the updates and these are my thoughts for the day. Unforturnately things aren’t getting any better. I don’t feel that the average American will be agreeable to any bill (taxes, healthcare, etc) that will benefit the wealthy and hurt the aged, children, and the poor. Like I said before, those millionaires and billionaires are not looking out for the average American but rather themselves. Education and science are so very important and we need to continue treat them as such. We have to remain leaders in these areas.
    Trump–where do I start? When someone puts a mic in front of you, you don’t have to feel compelled to say something stupid and wreckless. He is putting our country in danger and this is not why we put him in office. We did not ask for this. He is missing an important filter and this is concerning. We’re already in Syria fighting and elsewhere. We don’t need Russia and N. Korea gunning for us especially since he has dissed NATO. Something is seriously wrong with him mentally!! But I bet if his 2 precious rich sons had to go off to fight, he’d have a different tone.

    Hi Ms Bash,
    I watched the town hall episode last night with HHS secretary, Tom Price. As usual, I was impressed with you and Mr Blitzer and your efforts to press Mr Price for more specific and truthful responses. He was speaking in very general terms like he was reading from the actual bill or policy. Of course, we expected him to praise his product in order to sell it but I don’t think that he was pushed beyond his comfort zone to offer criticism of his bill. I don’t think that the audience was in a position to do that. On several occasions, instead of Mr Price giving a direct response, he talked around the question avoiding an honest response. I wish there’d been been someone on the panel like Senator Angus King of Maine who is very knowledgeable of the bill and would have been able to challege the secretary to be more specific in his responses. Perhaps, this can be taken into consideration for the next town hall.

    I happened to turn on the TV and caught the Sanders vs. Cruz debate which turned out to be a very interesting discussion where I learned a lot about the nuances of the ACA and learned how Cruz’s plan is what it was before any health care reform for all was enacted, an un-health plan. I think that you and CNN should sponsor more discussions designed to inform “WE THE PEOPLE” who have limited opportunity to develop a real understanding of how the tax law favors the rich, how the pharmaceutical companies profit, how lobbyists work, how people like Romney pay taxes on capital gains rather than income tax because of how their income is manipulated for tax benefits. These discussions should be designed to use clear language and be put in laymen’s terms so that people like me who are not lawyers or journalists with much background knowledge can develop real understanding of these issues. Kind of a “Understanding (Taxes, Corporate Profits, Health Care , Immigration issues, Homeland Security, Education) for Dummies”. So often reference is made to things that we do not grasp since we have not had the opportunity to be informed at a level we can understand. A Suzie Gorman approach to understanding democratic government in a capitalistic economy and seek to explain to me why this is not really a capitalistic government with a democratic process of electing officials run by the capitalistic money which has never before been more evident. If “WE THE PEOPLE” understood more we would be well informed voters. The average person is being fed lies and that is becoming their belief. We need a media program that WE THE PEOPLE feel we can trust because it covers facts we can understand.

    To whom is this comment addressed? The Post & Email has not taken a position on the matter nor even published an article about it.

  15. Karen Jackson   Wednesday, February 8, 2017 at 12:44 PM

    I am disappointed today, Feb 8,2017 that you hinted that Elizabeth’s attempt to read Corretta Scott King’s letter was for political gain for future party leadership. Don’t you hear the passion in her voice and have you not seem that she works tirelessly for the citizens from all US and not just Massachusetts? She believes that that information from Mrs. King is valuable to making a decision that moves the country forward on equal rights and not back to Jim Crow and other awful things.
    To quote Trump, bigly, that was very sad on your part.

    Thank you for your talent, ability, dedication, and steadfastness. Keep on keeping on.

    Just witnessed your snide remarks during the Trump ceremonies.

    No one 2 men divorced you.

  18. james sledge   Friday, December 2, 2016 at 9:39 AM

    Dana, thanks for stating that the president elect should be congratulated on taking baby steps on race relations. Tell that to Sen John Lewis, a man who has taken baby steps, almost killed, that he should still be waiting for baby steps. This is absurd, are you catering to someone in particular? Maybe that segment that you might loose, may tune you out, if you took a hard-line on Trump. You, and others in the position that you fill should not settle for mediocre performance from the highest office in the land.

  19. Robert Czeslawski   Monday, October 10, 2016 at 6:41 AM

    OK, I want someone to reassure me this isn’t a paranoid delusion.

    Trump wants to make it easier to silence the media when it criticizes him by relaxing the libel laws.
    Trump wants to create a deportation force. Considering the scope of that endeavor, it would be a small army. Maybe under Homeland Security and beholden to the President.
    Trump wants to imprison his political opponents.
    Trump wants to keep his family in charge of his business.
    Trump wants to put ultra conservatives on the Supreme Court.
    Trump wants a law and order police state.

    Now if a President Trump starts funneling government money into his business, does that not parallel Putin’s control of Russian finances.
    Does not a small army beholden to the President not parallel the SS troops.
    Does not a Trump controled radical right wing Supreme Court frighten everybody.
    Does not an administration consisting of Bannon, Lewandowski, Cristie, Giulanni and Ailes seem a threat to liberty.

    Is a Trump presidency the beginning of a totalitarian government.
    Am I delusional?
    Maybe the wall he wants to build is not to keep people out, but rather to keep people in.

    When Kellyanne Conway expressed that it was important for people to peruse all kinds of decisions (in this case Clinton’s decision not to leave a cheating husband) a candidate had made in order to better assess their character, why does this principle not apply to Trump’s tax information? After all, this seems a valuable record of what decisions he makes.

    Today Sunday, August 21.

    I caught your interview with Robby Mook this morning. Excellent job. What made Tim Russert a good journalist was his ability to ask a question, listen to the response and follow up intelligently. This morning your were Russert-eaque.
    Second, a good journalist should have a level a specificity in mind when they ask a question. I am not a lawyer but I am currently reading Law 101 written by Rutgers University law professor Jay Feinman. Feinman condenses constitutional interpretation to the level of generality that judges use in applying the legal text. Supreme Court Justices have lifetime employment so it doesn’t take much courage to develop a narrow versus a general interpretation. But a journalist is different. A journalist has to demand a level specificity at the costs that a guest might not accept the invitation to be interviewed again. A demand for specificity comes at the costs of relationships and access. That takes a higher level of courage. A journalist has to balance these costs and benefits. In the Mook interview you struck the right balance. A journalist worthy of viewership strikes the right balance often and has the courage to demand a narrow level of specificity when it is appropriate to do so. Again, I applaud you.

    I am not sure to which article or “clip” you are referring on which day.

  25. Robin Crowder   Sunday, August 21, 2016 at 9:31 AM

    You let Donald Trump campaign manager get away with a lie Sunday about Donald Trump releasing his taxes. You showed the clip when she called for him to release his taxes. Her response this morning was she just learned he is under audit. She did not just learn this, he been saying it for months.

    Well,.congratulations Dana, you on 6-13-16 dissected what Trump said “it was born an Afghan of Afghan parents and then emigrated to the US”. Then you: “partially true. But it was born in America’.
    Okay Dana.. who did it pledge allegiance to? It pledged allegiance to isis. Therefore what is the common denominator? (You do know what common denominator means right?). The common denominator is: that unchecked or unscreened immigration like HC wants is a source of the same people who pledge allegiance to isis.. in the form of ‘theyll say anything to get in.. and then radicalize once here’. Regardless of whether the recent one was born here or not, they pledged allegiance to (the common denominator) isis. And having a lax immigration policy is a trickle down to disorder. If the immigration policy were strong, then it would deter future same attacks.. unless you dont believe any have or would try to come here. If they can radicalize that bad even after being born here, then that should tell you that islam screening should be much harder. That is about as common sense as it can get. Your semantics about how Trump says it are pretty ridiculous. Ya dont see Mexicans coming or of Mexican heritage attacking here. Here’s Trump: “Dana, let’s say it together.. common denominator.. allegiance to isis which is associated with a certain religion from a certain area”.
