A portion of our Young Turks Main Show from April 14, 2016. For more go to http://www.tytmembership.com.
Hour 1: John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Wes Clark are hosting. Bernie Sanders’ huge rally crowd from yesterday in NYC is grabbing attention for what Paul Song said. A video shows Song talking about not electing anymore corporate whores. He later apologized for his “corporate whore” comment because it seemed like an attack on Hillary Clinton. John and Jimmy disagree on whether or not he should’ve used the term. Bernie also tweeted that he disagrees with Song’s choice of words. Donald Trump had a rally in NY and spoke about Mitt Romney choking the last election. Video shows Trump evoking the words “I can’t breathe” at the location where Eric Garner was strangled to death by cops. Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, will not face charges for pulling Michelle Fields. Local police said that there is a higher standard for prosecution. Wes wonders if he would’ve faced charges if he yanked a cop the same way.
Hour 2: Man was paralyzed in his hand, so he received a chip in his brain. The man regained movement in his hand. The study showed that his brain was able to send messages to the hand however then nerves were disconnected. Teenagers are setting themselves on fire by using aerosols and hairspray.
