Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Bruce Jenner is now Caitlyn Jenner and appeared in her new body on the cover of Vanity Fair. Cenk details why he’s conflicted on this story. He dislikes that this is leading to a new reality show on E! Tracy Morgan appeared on the Today Show to talk about his extremely devastating car accident that killed his friend, and nearly killed him. Cenk talks about the likely scenario in the settlement process that would have Morgan speak highly of their reaction to the accident. A Muslim woman was denied an unopened can of Coke on a United airlines flight, because they claimed policy won’t allow it since it could be used as a weapon. When she noticed that her neighboring passenger was given a closed can of beer, she asked others if its unfair, only to be berated with a racial tirade.
