Hour 1: Cat Fight between Donald Trump and the Republican Establishment. Now that Trump has been on top of the polls for 3 months straight, they’ve realized that he can actually win. With his comments about donors controlling politicians, and their realization that they can’t control him, freaking out has begun. On top of all of that, he floated the idea of raising taxes on hedge funds. The ads are coming to take him down. Another Cat Fight between GW Bush and Ted Cruz. Bush spoke at an event for Jeb and admitted that he just doesn’t like Cruz, or his niceties toward Donald Trump. Bernie Sanders is losing ground on Hillary Clinton after the 1st Democratic debate. Video of Bernie Sanders responding to Trump calling him a Communist/Socialist by saying the taxes on the richest is going to be a damn lot higher than it is now. A study shows that many men are not interested in a relationship with a smart and successful woman. Fox News’ Kennedy spoke out about the study by assuming the female co-author of the study is an academic, and therefore can’t find a man, so she conducted the study to make an excuse for her loneliness. A study in Portland, OR showed that Black pedestrians at crosswalks were forced to wait longer than other races. More drivers stopped for White pedestrians than Black pedestrians.
Hour 2: Jimmy and Brett Erlich join Cenk for SCS. A supervisor at the border patrol agency in San Diego started up a swinger sex party among his co-workers. A Hummus bar in Israel is offering 50% off of meals if Arabs and Jews come and eat together. Jimmy isn’t buying this, and Cenk loves the cafe owner for trying. Sears has decided to stop selling “Infidel” hats in its online stores. The hats have been worn by anti-Islamic RWingers to reclaim the word that terrorists have been known to call Westerners. Cenk and Jimmy aren’t against the hat.
