Mitt Romney and Fox’s Brian Kilmeade criticized the Maryland prosecutor, and spoke out in favor of Baltimore cops, no matter what the situation is.

A waitress in Kansas decided to give the governor a good political statement when she noticed that he was sitting in her section at the restaurant she worked at. Upon delivering the check to him, she cut out the “tip” section and wrote in for him to “tip the schools” since his policies strip the school system in favor of the rich. Despite the note, Brownback left a 10% tip for her. Cenk asks John, a former waiter, if this move was generous or dirty since it was only 10%.

Hour 2: Ana replaces John for SCS. The investigation into the shooting of Tamir Rice is slowly ongoing by authorities as they’ve asked the Rice family to drop their civil suit so that the murderous officers can be protected in their criminal case without their civil suit comments being used against them.

Cenk points out that gay business leaders that give them money probably spoke out and told these open bigots to STFU with their anti-gay rhetoric. Others in the business community that aren’t gay are worried about how homophobes are now in the minority, which could hurt their bottom line with consumers.
