Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. A pastor at a National Religious Liberties conference espoused some insane thoughts about the homosexual agenda. Video of the pastor claiming that Dumbledore of Harry Potter is gay and going to destroy America. Another video of the pastor talking about how he’d cover himself in cow manure if his gay son tried to get married and invite him to the ceremony. Video of the pastor’s grand finale talking about gaping puss sores. Jeb Bush’s failed attempt to hit Marco Rubio continues as his Super PAC plans to spend $20 million on campaign ads targeting Rubio. Before this ad blitz comes, Rubio’s campaign released an ad showing all of the glowing things Jeb has said about Marco in the past. Video of Rubio’s ad. Jeb Bush says he would kill baby Hitler if he could go back in time. Video of his comments. Cenk talks about how this is an actual gotcha question, except no one even asked it. Cenk is ready to hit the gavel on Jeb, ending his campaign. Hillary Clinton was asked about her “disheartening” answer to a supporter’s question about her comments calling Republicans the enemy. Video of her response, pointing out that she has great relations with the GOP when she’s in office. Cenk was annoyed by the weak question and answer. After a man was arrested for domestic violence and taken into custody, he ended up dead when the police tasered him to death. The officer responsible was convicted and sentenced to 1 month in jail, allowing him to serve his time on the weekends only.
Texas State Troopers are now required to report the race of the drivers they pull over. An investigation into the troopers’ reporting showed that they labeled minorities, especially Latinos as White so that their records wouldn’t reveal how many Black and Latino citizens are harassed. Fallout from the resignation of the President of the Univ of Missouri continues as some students and staff members fought back against the media scrutiny. Conservative media also voiced their outrage to the complacent President being ousted. Video of Kevin Jackson of Fox News defending the racism at the university, claiming that no one was hurt, so it’s no big deal. Video of Eric Bolling saying he would’ve dismissed the Black football players and replaced them with the basketball team. The Defense Dept has decided to dismantle the office that deals with stopping roadside bombs, or IEDs. The money that was used to fund this office dealing with the methods that kill the most American soldiers, is going to be spread to unlisted areas in defense. This move for more money to be funneled to other areas shows that they actually don’t care about the well being of the troops.
