The Young Turks - 1.21.15: SOTU Wrap Up, Obama, Police Shooting & Woman Ambushes Cops

Iadarola, Rubin, Jimmy, and RJ hosting. Talk about some of the larger issues that the president failed to mention at the SOTU Address last night. One was the success of ObamaCare. Talk about gay marriage and police brutality on undeserving citizens. Video of the zinger Obama snapped on condescending Republicans during the SOTU last night. When the GOP applauded his point about not running anymore campaigns, he responded by saying, “I know because I won both of them.” After the much talked about response, crybaby republicans complained that his tone won’t help him in working together. The GOP response to the SOTU was done by Joni Ernst, where she robotically went hokey in talking about her humble farming background, mentioning bread bags on her shoes.

Video has surfaced of a Massachusetts woman throwing bacon and sausage through the police dept window at officers.

After Fox’s terrorism analyst Steve Emerson caught hell for claiming that Birmingham England is ‘totally Muslim’ he was worried that his job is at stake and told the BBC about it. In reality, Fox News has been going crazy with the talking point of “No Go Zones.” Video of Hasselbeck talking with another expert about the no go zones, comparing them to breeding grounds like Afghanistan after 9-11. Video compilation of Fox News characters reiterating the term over and over since the attack. A guns group called The Truth About Guns conducted several simulations to find out what could’ve happened if the Charlie Hebdo offices had a gunman inside to respond to the attackers. They found that in every scene, the victims would’ve still died. After France’s Unity Rally in response to the terrorist attacks, the French government has arrested 54 people, including one well-known comedian for being anti-Semitic or “apologists for terrorists.”

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Update on the students that were assaulted by police after Ohio State won the national championship.

Ana believes that Nancy Grace is dangerous. NASCAR driver Kurt Busch is fighting a restraining order that has been placed against him by his ex girlfriend.
