Cenk hosting. Donald Trump calls John McCain a loser for being a POW and likes people that weren’t captured. Cenk doesn’t think this will run Trump out of the campaign even though many people think this is the end. Cenk illustrates it with What About Bob video. Video of Marco Rubio claiming that these comments disqualify Trump from the race. Cenk also remembers when the Bush campaign insinuated that McCain had an illegitimate Black daughter to Southern voters in the 2000 primary. Mitt Romney sent a shot at Trump via Twitter, forgetting that he sought out and got Trump’s endorsement in 2008. Video of their niceties. Lindsey Graham responded by defending McCain on the loser debate, and defending illegal immigrants that Trump offended. With all of the condemnation coming from GOPers toward Trump over his disrespectful words about a decorated hero like McCain, they didn’t have as much ire when they swiftboated John Kerry in the 2004 election. Video of Jake Tapper challenging one GOP Congressman on their swiftboating.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Latest developments on the group that put out the secretly filmed Planned Parenthood meeting about fetus organs. The group misrepresented itself in its tax status, deceiving the people that donate money to them. AshleyMadison.com was hacked, revealing information of many of the customers, threatening to do more unless their demands were met to shut down the site. Discussion about what kind of group may be behind this, based on morality or just anger. After Gawker caught hell for running a story outing an executive that was being blackmailed by his secret gay prostitute, two managing editors have stepped down. Conversation about the immorality of outing a gay person for no reason.
