Hour 1: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A woman is facing charges after she strongly encouraged her online boyfriend to commit suicide, which he finally did. Talk about whether or not these charges are valid. A trained black labrador was used to sniff out the child porn Jared Fogle had on thumb drives that was originally overlooked by human authorities. Ana wants to know if she can train a dog to pick up the scent of another woman on her boyfriend. Some Duke freshman is protesting a class that utilizes a book that includes some gay themes and illustrations to help tell the memoir because it violates his morals and Christian values. This move enrages Ana.
Hour 2: While Donald Trump conducted his press conference, Univision’s Jorge Ramos got into it with him, which got him kicked out by Trump’s security detail. Video of the confrontation. Video of Trump claiming that he didn’t have Ramos kicked out, but that it was some security he doesn’t control. Video of Trump signaling for security to jump into action. The response from many in the press vehemently went after Ramos in defense of Trump. Video of the Morning Joe crew claiming that Ramos made the story about himself, acting like he was bullied. Glenn Greenwald wrote about this situation, and called out Mark Caputo’s Politico article that lambasted Ramos.
