Hour 1: Bernie Sanders is planning a major speech on Democratic Socialism since so many opponents have characterized it as evil. The numbers of people that view the term Socialism as a positive term has grown, while the number that view Capitalism as positive has dwindled. A Republican Congressman from Alabama has declared that he wants to impeach Hillary Clinton before she even gets the Democratic nomination. Now that Marvel has made Captain America a Black man and fighting anti-immigrant bigots, Fox and Friends has lost their mind over it. Video of the panel lamenting the decision by the comic book.
Hour 2: Brett Erlich and Grace Baldridge join Cenk for SCS. A Texas judge has ruled that the state can deny birth certificates to children born here to undocumented mothers. They are also rejecting the Mexican consulate’s documentation that proves the legal documentation of the parent as a Mexican citizen. Amazon is suing 1000 people for falsifying product reviews for vendors’ products in need of more positive ratings. Brett goes over a couple of his fake, negative reviews. Cenk admits he religiously leans on customer reviews on Amazon and Yelp. A study showed that tipping well at a restaurant is more based on race, age, breast size, and hair color than on quality of service.
