Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread
June 19, 2016

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads, Step-Dads, and Do-Dads (a catch-all for anyone being a father figure by doing) out there in C&L land!

And shout out to Hal Boedeker, TV guy at the Orlando Sentinel. Hal reliably reports on the guests and content of the Sunday shows consistently every week. Given that his city has had the most painful week of all, I wanted to say thanks, Hal, for what you do, and wishing you and your fine city peace and healing.

Here's the line up for this morning:

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch does a Full Ginsburg, discussing the Orlando Shooting.

ABC's This Week: Lynch, and House Homeland Security Committee Chair Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas. Jonathan Karl speaks with Donald Trump on the campaign trail on his response to Orlando. And, as the Senate prepares to vote on four gun control measures Monday, NRA Institute for Legislative Action executive director Chris Cox and Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut. Plus, the Powerhouse Roundtable has staff writer for The Atlantic Molly Ball, ABC News contributor and ESPN senior writer LZ Granderson, National Review editor Rich Lowry, and Republican strategist and pollster Kristen Soltis Anderson.

CBS' "Face the Nation": Presidential candidate Donald Trump. The other guests are Lynch; Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association; Sen. Dianne Feisntein, D-Calif.; Michael Morell, former deputy CIA director; and Fran Townsend, former homeland security adviser to President George W. Bush. Also: Ruth Marcus and Michael Gerson of The Washington Post.

NBC's "Meet the Press": Lynch, and House Speaker Paul Ryan. The panel will be José Díaz-Balart of NBC News, MSNBC and Telemundo; Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics; Gwen Ifill of PBS' "Washington Week" and "NewsHour"; and Katy Tur of NBC News.

Fox News Sunday: Lynch and Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. The panel will be Brit Hume, Juan Williams, George Will and Amy Walter of The Cook Political Report.

Also CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS will have an interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.


Gotta wonder if Putin will endorse Trump this morning. Not entirely kidding.

What are you seeing on the shows this morning?
