The validity of Donald Trump’s faith has come under scrutiny from Dr. Ben Carson. Video of Trump responding by saying he’s a Believer, Big League, in God. After Ted Cruz got blocked from the stage where Kim Davis was speaking after being released, Mike Huckabee openly admitted to NewsMax that it was his event, not Ted Cruz. Cenk reads verses from the Bible that speak violently against listening to the orders of judges. Scientists in South Africa have discovered a potentially new species that seems to be related to humans. They’re calling it Homo naledi. Donald Trump went after Carly Fiorina in a Rolling Stone interview by talking about her face, and that no one would vote for “that face.” When he caught heat for it, he went on Fox to claim he was talking about her persona, not her physical appearance. Video of Fiorina responding with Megyn Kelly. In the same Rolling Stone interview, Trump spoke about how he’d have sex with his daughter if he wasn’t her father. Videos of Trump saying similar things about his daughter in the past.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. NYPD tackled a Black man while he talked on the phone on the street. After the officer without a uniform or badge assaulted the man, they found out that it was former tennis star James Blake. NYPD apologized to Blake, which illustrates that they wouldn’t care about it if they randomly attacked an unknown Black person. The Daily Beast uncovered a study that showed a phenomenon within the gay dating community that openly and harshly discriminates certain races in their dating profiles. The question of whether or not sexual racism is a thing was asked by another study. Cenk doesn’t think we can judge people’s racial preferences when it comes to sex and dating. Cenk gives his theory on why this seems to be more prevalent in the gay community.
