Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. At last night’s Democratic Townhall debate, controversy surrounded a question from a kid that slipped up and said, “I can see why they gave you this question” when it was supposed to be from the constituents. Video of the moment in question that made people ask if the questions were planted for Hillary from CNN. Cenk points out that Clinton has a history of planting questions. Video of her answer to the question. The kid that asked the question tweeted that it really was his question that was submitted to CNN for any candidate. Cenk rules that the kid was telling the truth, and that it wasn’t planted. One militia member in Oregon is upset that Christie called for them to be dismantled so he challenged him to a sumo match. Video of his challenge. Another story from the militia members was caught on police body cams when they arrested one heading to Oregon to help protect the other patriots. Video of the conflict where he was arrested for DUI and threatened to kill all of the cops. Cenk imagines what happens to minority citizens that have run ins with cops when they don’t’ have a gun or threaten death.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. The Mizzou professor that tried to stop journalists from reporting on the school’s racial tensions, asking for “muscle” has been charged with 3rd degree assault. After investigating Planned Parenthood over the fetal tissue sale controversy, the conclusions led them to indict the group that made the sting videos instead of PP. Fox News’ Judge Napolitano lost his mind over the fact that this Republican judge didn’t rule against Planned Parenthood. President Obama wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post announcing his executive order to ban solitary confinement for juveniles. The issue of drug addiction is suddenly something that legislators care about since White people are primarily addicted to heroin.
