Cenk and Ana hosting. O’Reilly’s attack dog Jesse Watters went on an ambush interview of Bernie Sanders. Video of the annoying encounter. Cenk is ok with these ambush interviews of elected officials. He’s annoyed that Watters’ line of questioning is treating him as a joke. Video of Watters and O’Reilly laughing over their encounter. Carly Fiorina released a new campaign ad using Donald Trump’s demeaning words about “her face” to appeal to female voters. Video of the ad. Although Ana disagrees with Fiorina’s agenda, she admits the ad made her feel for her. A study uncovered the surprising costs for the families of incarcerated people.
The star of Entourage tweeted an image of a meme that mourned Americans lost on 9-11 as well as the tons of Iraqis lost in the war we shouldn’t have started. Outrage ensued. Cenk reminds everyone that people like Glenn Beck called the families of victims of 9-11 whiners that want something from the government. Miss Tennessee of the Miss America pageant gave a thoughtful answer on funding Planned Parenthood, which sparked anger from Dana Loesch. Sarah Silverman addressed many comedians’ decision to not perform at colleges because they’ve become ultra PC. She pointed out that people that don’t like PC sound like old people that refuse to change. Video of her answer. President Obama addressed the discussion as well, and defended the presence of potentially offensive speakers that may show up at college campuses to speak.
