Cenk hosting today. Donald Trump told Morning Joe that we need to keep minimum wage at a very low rate so that we can compete with other countries that mistreat their workers. Video of Trump telling CNN that if the Pope questioned his belief in capitalism, he’d tell him about how ISIS wants to take over the Vatican. An Iowa talk radio host proposed forcing illegal immigrants into slavery if they don’t deport themselves. Audio of Jan Mickelson detailing his plan to reimplement slavery in America. Multiple presidential candidates have gone on his talk show since this rhetoric was sent over the airwaves.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A couple of brothers in Boston attacked a Latino homeless man after leaving the Red Sox game. After being arrested, they spoke about how they were following Trump’s lead when dealing with Latinos. The older brother urinated on the cell door and cussed at the cops. Video of Trump calling these supporters passionate and only want America to be great again. A 15 year old farmboy from NC has entered the presidential race under the name Deez Nuts and has already received 9% of the vote. A talk radio show helped a caller look up the Ashley Madison information to find out that her husband was on the list of cheaters. Ana and Cenk hate this move by the radio show.
