Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. Steve King and Peter King both approached the police brutality stories, specifically Baltimore from left field. Video of Steve King blaming Obama for pushing wedge issues in America, with the latest being between police and criminals. He went on to say that Obama drove the culture of Ferguson, which led to the unrest in Baltimore. Video of Peter King blindly siding with Baltimore cops, calling the killings a handful of cases that turned out to be untrue. Video of King and Megyn Kelly criticizing Loretta Lynch for launching an investigation into Baltimore cops when an NYPD officer was being laid to rest. Glenn Greenwald story about the Canadian government’s plan to make it illegal through hate crime laws for advocacy groups to encourage boycotts of Israel.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. George Zimmerman has been injured in another road rage incident where the other driver shot at GZ, shattering his window. A Vermont State Senator has been arrested for sexual assault and also solicited sex with housing tenants in place of rent. Cenk wonders, since TYT is in favor of legal prostitution, if it’s wrong for a landlord to ask for sex to be given in place of rent. Ana vehemently disagrees with this being legitimate. Some politicians and lobbyists are offering constituents to pay thousands of dollars to go to Taylor Swift concerts with them.
