Hour 1: GOP candidates have finalized their demand letter for future debates with networks. Some of the details are comical, since they know they hold the card of granting access to TV stations. Video of Megyn Kelly mocking the candidates demand list. President Obama also railed on the GOP’s complaining by pointing out they say they’ll roar on Putin, but can’t take questions from CNBC moderators. The Koch Brothers went on Morning Joe to help paint their persona as positive and in favor of the betterment of all Americans. Video of Scarborough’s previous defense of the Kochs after Harry Reid called them un American. Video of Scarborough’s latest interview, where he painted Charles Koch as injured by the unfair attacks from mean Democrats. Charles Koch spoke about how the uncivil attacks are against what he’s looking for. Video of Scarborough asking a faux tough question about the Koch’s funding of candidates, allowing Charles to claim he’s only looking to reform the corrupt system. Video of the Morning Joe panel glowing over Charles Koch, to wrap up their agenda of changing the narrative on the Kochs.
Hour 2: Hannah Cranston and Hasan Piker join Cenk for SCS. Taco Bell has fired one of its Senior Marketing managers for assaulting an Uber driver. Video of the attack. Hasan wonders where safety protocol standards are for Uber drivers. Six African American Spirit Airline passengers are planning to sue the airline after they were kicked off of a flight when the attendant deemed them a threat when a dispute over an overbooked seat occurred. Hannah talks about how horrible Spirit is. The other Black passengers that called out the unfair behavior were also pulled off of the plane for speaking their mind. A Ohio Univ frat has been suspended after video surfaced of them singing “Send Nudes” to the tune of Hey Jude on the front yard of a neighboring sorority house. Hannah thinks this incident is being blown way out of proportion, and Hasan agrees with her.
