Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. After the NY election problems, the comptroller that is in charge of investigating the problem that seemingly disenfranchised tons of Sanders voters is a Hillary Clinton delegate. Now that Trump has an even clearer route to winning the GOP nomination, he seems to have made the pivot to the Left to appeal to more voters. During his Today Show town hall this morning he exhibited this change in tone. Video of Trump telling Matt Lauer that he is in favor of transgendered Americans being able to use any restroom they want. Video of Ted Cruz telling Glenn Beck that anyone in favor of allowing anyone to use whichever bathroom they feel comfortable with is living the PC culture. He referenced “grown men” being alone in a bathroom with “little girls” multiple times. Video of Trump telling the Today Show that he’s in favor of changing the GOP platform on abortion to have exceptions.

The cause of death is still unknown, although he cancelled some tour dates over having the flu, and visited the hospital.
