Cenk hosting. The Pope spoke to Congress today and Cenk admits he kind of loves him. Reading through some of his progressive stances that clearly line up with Catholic belief. After the speech, the Pope greeted the huge crowd from a balcony and while standing next to him, Boehner couldn’t hold back tears. Video of this crying session as well as one moment where Marco Rubio appeared to be crying during the speech. Cenk doesn’t believe Rubio was crying when the subject was on immigrants. Just late last year, Rubio criticized the Pope for his stance on America working toward an agreement with Cuba. One Republican Congressman refused to attend the Pope’s appearance, claiming that since he’s acting like a Leftist politician, he’ll treat him like one.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. After Kanye West mentioned that he wanted to run for president one day, Vanity Fair followed up on that assertion in a new interview. He pointed out that he’s really going to do it and needs to do his research in the next 5 years. He also said that Ben Carson is a brilliant guy, which prompted Cenk to determine that Kanye isn’t very bright. A young Mexican girl fought through adoring crowds to get a note to the Pope during his visit. Her letter detailed her concerns over deportation of her parents even though she’s an American citizen. Cenk can’t get over how this girl didn’t write this sophisticated letter. Former UFC fighter David Abbott is challenging Ronda Rousey to a match.
