A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from May 22, 2015. For more go to http://www.tytmembership.com.
Hour 1: Ben, John, and Jimmy Dore hosting. The first Fox GOP debate will only allow the top 10 competitors based on poll numbers, leaving a few big names off the list, including Rick Santorum, who is now complaining. Ben thinks his complaints are valid. New AG Loretta Lynch is defending the NSA program, hoping that that the spying portion won’t expire with scare tactics about Americans being in harm’s way. Videos of her making her case to CBS’ morning show.
Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. The Duggar’s eldest son has admitted to doing inappropriate sexual acts as a teenager, forcing him to resign from his lobbying position with Family Research Council. When his parents were made aware of his activities, they proceeded to cover it up multiple times. Mike Huckabee jumped to Duggar’s defense via Facebook. Jimmy talks about how big of a hypocrite Huckabee is. Ana points out that when Lena Dunham revealed that she had sexual curiosity with her little sister at age 7, the National Review went after her, but they haven’t touched this story at all.
