Video of Carson’s original answer about the Chinese being involved in Syria and that it’s easy to take land from ISIS in Iraq. Elliot displays a chart he almost claimed to have made. Days later, President Obama, Susan Rice, and others discredited Carson’s claims of the Chinese in Syria and the ease of taking out energy fields in Iraq to defeat ISIS. Videos of Obama calling him out and Carson’s response claiming that his sources are better than the WH. Elliot talks about the lack of accuracy in Obama’s bombings, and Ben Carson is advocating an even more random and reckless approach. Donald Trump tore into Ben Carson’s lying behavior while giving a 90 min rambling speech to a supporting crowd in Iowa. Video of Trump talking about the senseless nature of the knife attack story. Video of Trump comparing Carson’s declaration of being pathological to being a child molester. Cenk and Ben discuss why one would vote for Carson over Trump and vice versa.

After criticism and pressure mounted, he has reversed his decision. The British woman that wore a prosthetic penis and disguise and tricked her female friend into having sex with her for a very long time has been sentenced to 8 years in prison. Discussion about other instances of having sex under false pretenses, and whether or not it’s rape. Ben and Cenk don’t think the woman that posed as a man should be in jail at all. Ana completely disagrees with their conclusion, calls it obvious rape. An NCIS actress was attacked by a mentally ill homeless man on the street.
