Hour 1: Cenk hosting. The Koch Bros and Sheldon Adelson are teaming up for campaign season to collectively rig the election in their favor. Cenk outlines the Koch Brothers’ favorite candidates as well as Adelson’s. A heavily armed gunman with an armored vehicle started a shootout with Dallas Police at the police station on Saturday. He was a Conservative that felt the PD was too Liberal, and blamed them for his losing custody of his son. CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield called the shooter courageous and brave while talking about his plan to take on the entire police force. Video of her comments and eventual apology after she caught hell. Cenk is annoyed by the level of Political Correctness coming from Conservatives over this. Gun advocacy groups are up in arms over proposed legislation to force potential gun buyers to have a license and be at least 21 years old. Meanwhile, an Iowa mall cop whose online presence was full of open carry gun toting memes and 2nd Amendment talk, has been arrested for shooting and killing a 20 year old woman that worked at the mall. After she reported him for sexual harassment, he was fired, and he returned to get revenge on her.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Despite the drought California is experiencing, some rich residents are complaining about water limits that they feel should exempt them. Ana quotes a Conservative talk show host that gave the WashPost an unbelievably elitist quote. Seth MacFarlane responded to criticism over Family Guy’s past jokes about Caitlyn Jenner’s transgender identity. Keith Ablow gave his 2 cents on “transracial” Rachel Dolezar by connecting it to Caitlyn Jenner and his desire to claim he’s a senior citizen eligible for Medicare. A man facing a paternity test for a newborn baby sent a lookalike to take the test so he could be off the hook for child support, but was busted. Ana gives her theory on dating a good looking guy and how many women throw themselves at him.
