Hour 1: Cenk and Iadarola hosting. Hillary Clinton continues to refuse to release the transcripts of her speeches to financial entities. Video of her saying she’ll release them when everyone else releases theirs. She has made millions of dollars personally from these speeches, as well as the hundreds of thousands she’s obtained for campaigning. Hillary Clinton supporter Madeleine Albright told a crowd that there’s a special place in hell for women that don’t help each other. Video of the raucous reaction to her go to line. Video of Clinton defending the line on Meet the Press. She also wonders why people get so offended nowadays. Gloria Steinem told Bill Maher that the reason women support Bernie is because they know that’s where the boys are. She later apologized. The Clinton campaign also cried foul over some Sanders supporters that used incendiary language against Hillary for being a woman. Despite the fact that they have no connection to his campaign, Bernie distanced himself from them anyway.
Hour 2: Hannah Cranston joins Cenk for SCS. Beyonce released a new song and video ahead of her Super Bowl 50 performance. The video that calls for a stop to police violence and a celebration of Black culture has ruffled many people’s feathers, while making many people in the Black community happy. Rudy Giuliani lamented the halftime performance as a call to disrespect cops. Cenk talks about some of the real history of the Black Panthers, since Fox News freaked out over Beyonce’s backup dancers dressed in Black Panther garb. A Chicago cop who fatally shot a mentally ill teenager is suing the kid’s family for millions of dollars over the trauma his murder caused him.
