  1. That woman does not seem to have the brains she was born with. I don’t know her, I just saw her on MSNBC asking a stupid question. She is the type of woman that makes me wonder about the intelligence of some women in the news world. I am an old woman and she is a total disappointment as far as I am cocerned.

    I had the opportunity to watch Mrs. Anne on Washington Week and thought the information she provided and her presentation style were superior. More importantly, her interaction with the other discussion members made it easier to understand the subjects being discussed. This is why I looked up her background on your site so I could gain a better understanding of her background and experience that enables her to be so effective. Your information was very helpful.

    Having been assigned to and traveled to, during my 30-year career in The United States Air Force piqued my interest in what she contributed to this Washington Week Program, Broadcast on 11 May 2018.
