A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from January 14, 2015. For more go to http://www.tytmembership.com.
Hour 1: John Iadarola and Jimmy Dore hosting. A terror attack overnight in Jakarta, Indonesia was claimed by ISIS. A couple more would-be patriots that were planning to head to Oregon to join the movement got into a drunken gun fight, with one being shot dead. Some of their fellow militiamen mourned the death of their friend, lamenting the fact they broke the 1st rule of gun safety: don’t mix drinking and guns. Jeb Bush has released a new ad going after Trump, explaining why he calls him a Jerk. Video of the ad that fully explains how horrible it was when Trump mocked a reporter with a disability. Jimmy thinks the ad is ineffective, since it’s trying to call out his rudeness by calling Trump a name.
Hour 2: Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich, and Hasan Piker for SCS. The billion dollar powerball lotto has been claimed, by three winners from 3 different states. Ana rains on their parade by detailing the many times lotto winners’ lives were ruined after winning the prize. The ex fiance of Steven Avery of “Making a Murderer” fame has completely changed her positive position about his character now that the documentary has gained huge notoriety. Video of her telling her story of abuse to Nancy Grace. Ana and Hasan disagree about the level of reasonable doubt surrounding Avery’s case. 236 New York City Schools use metal detectors/TSA-style on students daily.
