Hour 1: Bobby Jindal has dropped out of the presidential race, saying it’s not his time and that he is going to focus time on a think tank. Cenk is taking much joy in the news. The drumbeat against accepting any refugees continues to grow. Video of Rush Limbaugh saying that Obama calling out political leaders that want religious tests for refugees is all made up. Cenk names a couple of the culprits, Ted Cruz and Rupert Murdoch. Video of Chris Christie telling Hugh Hewitt that he doesn’t trust Obama’s vetting to allow any refugees in. Video of Mike Huckabee telling Dana Loesch that we can’t let refugees in, comparing them to E. Coli at Chipotle and spoiled milk. Despite Republicans’ declarations that we have no vetting process when allowing refugees in, the reality is that it is the most intense. Cenk dives into the details of the things we do. With the latest stream of hysteria after the French attacks, more anti-American people have taken the route of acting like terrorists. Video of Bo Dietl telling Sean Hannity that we need to monitor mosques and stop worrying about people’s rights.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. A French father explained to his young son why guns are not needed to protect them from the bad guys with guns, looking to kill them. Video of Charlie Sheen telling the Today Show that he is HIV positive and how he’s known for 4 years. Since he’s learned of the condition, he’s admitted to having unprotected sex with 2 women that were warned of it. Cenk talks about living a life of balance and how he somehow admires Sheen. Two SF cops have been put on paid leave after a video of them beating a defenseless suspect was released. Video of their pursuit and beating.
