Hour 1: More comparison of questions asked of Republican candidates vs. Democratic candidates. Cenk corrects his flawed comparison from the previous day by now comparing CNN Town Hall with Republicans to a CNN Town Hall with Democrats. Trump’s claims that he was against the Iraq War from the beginning, and more examples of an intimidated, coddling Anderson Cooper. James Clyburn endorses Hillary. He says he supports her because she is the best choice to fight for universal healthcare, affordable college, and go against income inequality. The Koch brothers are hoping to boost petroleum-based transportation fuels and attack government subsidies for electric vehicles by funding a new pro-petroleum fuels group.
Hour 2: Cenk, Ana, Ben, and Iadarola hosting. Entrepreneur, Justin Keller, wrote an open letter to the mayor of San Francisco about the homeless community ranting against homeless people. He called them “riff raff,” and complained about having to see them everyday on his way to work. MAC Cosmetics posted a picture on their Instagram of a black woman’s lips featuring a deep colored lipstick and received several racist comments. Many people criticize black women for their natural features, but continually applaud white women when they artificially recreate the same looks. A rare dolphin died on a beach after several beach-goers took it out of the water and to take selfies with it. Video of crowd passing the dolphin around and taking pictures.
