Hour 1: Cenk hosting today. A proposed deal has been reached between world leaders and Iran to neutralize their enrichment of uranium for a nuclear weapon. Videos of Obama announcing how this deal works to rid Iran of their march to create a nuclear weapon. Cenk sifts through the details of the deal. Videos of KT McFarland baselessly declaring that the deal is simply a pinky promise with Iran. After Indiana caught hell for passing discriminatory laws against gays in the form of religious freedom, a proposed fix to the law has been introduced to specifically create a caveat that excluded gays from the discrimination. Cenk points out that they’ve ironically given gays special protections from the discrimination the law created. The new law would allow people to discriminate against anyone else except gays. Tom Cotton brings both topics together when he defended the discrimination proposal in his state by comparing it to how badly Iranians treat their gay citizens.

Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Video of Pat Robertson giving his 2 cents on the anti-gay laws in Indiana.

The judge claimed that even though he didn’t commit the murder, he was guilty of knowing about the robbery that ended up leading to the death, and trying to pawn the murder weapon. The new host of the Daily Show is already under fire for some tweets where he made fun of Jews and women. Cenk and Ana defend his benign jokes that the sensitive Twitter followers were offended by.
