Hour 1: Ana, Iadarola, and Jimmy hosting. Another terrorist attack has been conducted in Mali at a luxury hotel where 27 people were killed. Talk about potential solutions to this everyday occurrence. Donald Trump has doubled down on his decision to put Muslims on a database to track them. Video of an NBC reporter asking him to clarify how he’d do this and he told him, management. Another video of Trump refusing to answer how this plan is different than Nazis plan to put Jews in a database in the lead up to the Holocaust. Michigan Gov Rick Snyder was one of the leading Republican governor to call for the denial of Syrian refugees so he went on a radio show to talk about why he doesn’t like the current refugee vetting process. Video of him not being able to name one problem with the process. Video of Snyder refusing to apply the same paranoia and extra restrictions to European tourists that visit with very little analysis when they enter the U.S. A CNN reporter has been suspended for a tweet she released that reported on the House bill to limit Syrian refugees. Her tweet included a visual of how the Statue of Liberty is bowing its head in anguish. Since she violated CNN’s non-editorializing stance, she had to apologize.
Video of excerpts from Bernie Sanders’ speech on Democratic Socialism and how it would work for America. Breaking down how this proposed system isn’t as scary as it is pitched by his opponents.
