Rep Kevin McCarthy is gearing up for a run to become the next Speaker, so he went on Hannity’s show to prove his Conservative accolades. Video of McCarthy claiming that the Benghazi Committee was put together to tear down Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and he’s on board for that kind of leadership. During the Planned Parenthood hearing, Rep Grothman asked what the purpose is of Planned Parenthood since as a guy, he can go anywhere for healthcare. Bernie Sanders spoke out about how Pres Obama took too long to realize that the GOP hates him and will never work with him. John is comforted by Sanders recognizing the atmosphere, since Obama didn’t. Jeb Bush spoke with an NFL show on SiriusXM and voiced his support for the Redskins name. Video of his answer, claiming that Native American tribes don’t find it offensive, either. Coincidentally, Redskins owner Dan Snyder recently gave $100,000 to the Super PAC that supports Jeb.
Ana joins Ben for SCS. Apple app store has rejected an app called Drones Plus, that shows areas where drone strikes have happened. Apple claimed it was excessively crude, unentertaining, or objectionable content. 8 players from Iran’s female soccer team are being accused of being men posing as women. Iran is very open to gender reassignment surgery and trans issues. Ben isn’t buying that these players are transgender women, but simply men being put on the team as ringers. Discussion about the potential of this becoming an issue in American sports. The Saudi prince accused of raping a woman in his Beverly Hills home has posted the $300K bail and flew out of the country on a private jet. Ana doesn’t think it’s likely that he’ll return to face the rape charges.

Ben Mankiewicz and John Iadarola hosting. A study on presidential candidates showed that the more media coverage they receive, the higher they are in polls. Discussion on the lack of coverage on Bernie Sanders. Kim Davis’ attorneys and supporters have been pushing a picture of a gathering of 100K people in Lima, Peru, claiming it was out of support for Davis. Today, they’ve admitted that the picture was misleading, as it was of another event in Peru…an “honest mistake.” John goes through several other heroic pictures of Kim.
Azealia Banks is in the news after getting into an argument on a flight with a couple over luggage where she called the man a fucking faggot. Once she caught hell for her language online, she doubled down. Talk about bags while flying. A study out of Stanford found that people who look to deny the existence of White privilege tend to claim hardships of their own. They take White privilege to mean that they didn’t earn anything they have.
