Cenk hosting. The Daily Beast article that highlighted rape allegations in Donald Trump’s divorce proceedings with Ivana Trump have made headlines. She spoke about being being raped by Trump during the marriage after getting a bad and painful plastic surgery job. She has recently changed her interpretation of the rape, calling it totally without merit. Trump’s spokesperson came forward and sent a string of threats at the Daily Beast writer, including asserting that a person cannot rape their spouse. The spox had to eventually apologize for the profanity laced tirade against the writer. Cenk remembers the ad Trump ran in 1989 that called for the death penalty on 5 falsely accused Black men of rape in NYC.

A dentist from Minnesota has been identified as the man that killed a famous lion in Zimbabwe that was known to be friendly toward humans. He bribed someone $55K to lure the lion out of the national park before he shot him with a crossbow and eventually decapitated it.

Cenk hosting. TYT adopts an iguana and asks the viewers to name it Iggy Azalea or Rick James. Cenk gives out the current results of the “Freak 16” and outrageous poll numbers on Donald Trump with a Washington Post/ABC Poll with the Don at the top with 24% and tapping into the base’s desire of wanting a “strong leader”, according to the poll. Lindsey Graham thinks he is in a fight with the Don, by stooping to his level with an appearance on CNN defending John McCain by calling Donald Trump a “jackass” and is pissed, the Don replys that he is a stiff an idiot, couldn’t get a job in the private sector and gives out Lindsey’s cell number on top of all that. Rush Limbaugh gives his observations and his love for The Don regarding his lack of an apology towards John McCain and veterans.

Cenk & Ana hosting. The conservative group looking to take down Planned Parenthood has released another secret taped video of a conversation about fetal tissue. Video of a negotiation about costs for shipping the tissue. The Conservative group’s “buyer” was the person that increased the price via negotiation.

Cenk talks about how he’s evolved on the abortion issue.  A Right Wing Evangelical preacher traveled to Uganda, Russia, and Eastern Europe to spread his message of hate towards gay rights and push legislation to kill gay activists. Lots of anti-gay sentiment rose in these areas after this flood of hate was injected.

Cenk hosting. Donald Trump calls John McCain a loser for being a POW and likes people that weren’t captured. Cenk doesn’t think this will run Trump out of the campaign even though many people think this is the end. Cenk illustrates it with What About Bob video. Video of Marco Rubio claiming that these comments disqualify Trump from the race. Cenk also remembers when the Bush campaign insinuated that McCain had an illegitimate Black daughter to Southern voters in the 2000 primary. Mitt Romney sent a shot at Trump via Twitter, forgetting that he sought out and got Trump’s endorsement in 2008. Video of their niceties. Lindsey Graham responded by defending McCain on the loser debate, and defending illegal immigrants that Trump offended. With all of the condemnation coming from GOPers toward Trump over his disrespectful words about a decorated hero like McCain, they didn’t have as much ire when they swiftboated John Kerry in the 2004 election. Video of Jake Tapper challenging one GOP Congressman on their swiftboating.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Latest developments on the group that put out the secretly filmed Planned Parenthood meeting about fetus organs.

Discussion about what kind of group may be behind this, based on morality or just anger. After Gawker caught hell for running a story outing an executive that was being blackmailed by his secret gay prostitute, two managing editors have stepped down. Conversation about the immorality of outing a gay person for no reason.

On April 15, 2015, 61-year-old rural mail carrier Doug Hughes grabbed headlines after flying his one-man gyrocopter from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to Washington DC and touching down on the west lawn of the Capitol building, bringing with him 535 letters - one for each member of Congress to draw attention to the pressing need for campaign finance reform.

In this interview with The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, Hughes talks about:

- How he came up with the idea for his historic flight
- Whether he was concerned about being shot out of the air
- How politicians, the moneyed interests and the mainstream media all conspire to perpetuate a corrupt system
- How the right and left can come together to battle corporate cronyism and government corruption
- The felony and misdemeanor charges against him and the upcoming trial that could send him away for X years in prison
- How crony capitalism and a corrupt Congress are intentionally driving the US Postal Service into bankruptcy
- The next stunt he’s planning to shake Americans out of their complacency about the need to get money out of politics and restore democracy.

One of the earliest digital entrepreneurs, Drew Curtis built Fark.com into a hugely popular news aggregation site to rival Huffington Post, Drudge Report and Yahoo. Now he’s set his sights on a new challenge: an upstart independent campaign for governor of Kentucky, running on a platform of getting money out of politics, data-driven policy making and adopting best practices from other states’ experiences. Does he really have a chance?

In this interview, Curtis and The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur discuss:

- What, exactly, “Fark” means anyway
- How idiotic non-news has come to dominate the mainstream news media
- Whether the electorate is primed for a candidate who’s not about “business as usual”
- Massive government corruption that’s hidden in plain sight
- Can a gubernatorial candidate win by admitting that his/her state is not number one?
- How fact-and-data-based governance would function
- Curtis’ chances of breaking up the two-party duopoly in Kentucky and across the country

Even after meeting with the Governor, County Clerk Casey Davis refuses to do so. Videos of Davis telling MSNBC that he refuses. Ted Cruz’ supporters are pissed that his book isn’t on the NY Times Best Seller list even though its at #3 as far as numbers of sales go. NYT claims that the book has been bought in bulk sales in order to get on the list. Donald Trump is leading the GOP presidential field in a new poll. While this news spreads, he has announced that he has to move his latest event to the Phoenix Convention Center due to the extremely high numbers of attendees. Wes talks about how Trump really has no chances, while Cenk thinks there is a possibility.

Hour 2: Update on the Oregon bakery that was forced to pay $135K in damages to a same sex couple that they refused service to. After everyone thought the monetary amount was over refusal of service, the real reason is that the bakery revealed personal information of the couple, leading to death threats and potentially losing their adopted kids. A gay porn star has been convicted of extortion after trying to blackmail a very wealthy businessman he was sleeping with for money. He requested tons of money and an Audi, which he received.

Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. Ted Cruz appeared on Hardball and got into an exchange with Matthews about his new lack of support for the Supreme Court when he was all aboard when the Court ruled in favor of Bush in 2000 for his election. Videos of the cornering that led to Cruz calling the truth just “talking points.” Donald Trump continues to dig an even larger hole regarding his immigration comments, calling them criminals and rapists. Video of his appearance on Anderson Cooper’s show where he said it all over again. Since the Republican Presidential field won’t distance themselves from his rhetoric, the DNC released an ad that illustrated how Trump is running the Party. Despite the GOP’s talking point that they want to reach out to Latino voters, every candidate turned down the National Council of La Raza for a speaking engagement. La Raza is the largest Latino advocacy organization. Jeb Bush told a NH paper that in order for the country to grow out of the rut we’re in, people need to work longer hours. Video of his original comments and his clarification after he caught hell. He explained that he meant more full time work rather than part time hours. Cenk gives facts that show Americans work more than all other industrialized countries, and full time workers work an average of 47 hours.

Singer Ariana Grande was caught on tape licking donuts in a donut shop while the employee was in the back room. She later said she hates Americans and America.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. The Florida man that was caught having sex on a beach has been sentenced to 2.5 years in prison and will have to register as sex offenders. Cenk and Ana completely disagree with this level of punishment. Duck Dynasty star Si Robertson was being interviewed and claimed that there is no such thing as an atheist since they use calendars and yell out, “Oh God help me” when in trouble. The Washington Post has exposed the fact that many of the workers building Donald Trump’s new hotel in DC are undocumented workers that had illegally crossed the southern border. Trump denies these facts. Cenk thinks the saddest part is that the undocumented workers will be fired so that Trump can cover his ass. Trump and Modern Family writer Danny Zuker got into a Twitter fight that was very one sided.

After the latest revelations about Bill Cosby’s purchasing of drugs to rape women, Whoopi Goldberg and Raven Simone are holding onto their support. Video of the View segment where she vehemently continued to ask for proof. Jill Scott was previously one of the few that defended Cosby, but she has flipped on it after the latest facts.
