Cenk picks up on the Nate Silver story. A sheriff for a small town in Louisiana that was indicted on civil rights charges made anti-Semitic remarks about an attorney involved.

While awaiting his trial, this sheriff isn’t even being held in jail after all of this information came to light. Donald Trump’s campaign has been soliciting foreign leaders for money to be used in the election. Cenk recites some of the leaders’ perplexed responses to Trump. Talk about how illegal this campaign move is.
