Cenk hosting. Talk about why TYT has decided to stop blurring Donald Trump’s face on the show. Although he was originally banned due to his simple desire to gain attention, the latest GOP primary polls have him as a legitimate contender for the nomination. Even beyond the GOP cycle, he’s also gaining on Hillary in the polls. Trump’s plan to fly his helicopter to the Iowa State Fair and take kids for a ride was shortly derailed by the event until he simply did it off site. When one kid asked him if he’s Batman, Trump responded by saying, “I am Batman.” He also went on to tell reporters that Mitt Romney isn’t really rich. Trump has released his plan on immigration policy which includes building a wall funded by Mexico, kicking all immigrants out, and eliminating birthright citizenship. Donald Trump appeared on MTP and discussed a litany of issues. Video of Trump’s answer on who he goes to for military advice…television shows. Trump’s thoughts on what to do about Saudi Arabia. Video of Trump without an opinion on whether or not Ukraine is in NATO.

Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Latest on the two Tea Party state reps that were busted having an affair and attempting to claim he was having a gay affair to lessen the blow. The female rep has vowed to not resign over the scandal and accusation they’ve misused funds for the affair. Ana and Cenk disagree on whether or not they should be forced out over their direct hypocrisy over family values that they push in legislation that disrupt people’s lives. Pro football player James Harrison made his two sons return participation trophies to school since they weren’t for anything they did. Cenk talks about how much he supports this line of thinking, while his kids receive trophies. Ana agrees, but thinks showing up should be recognized, since it’s useful in the real world.

The activist, blogger and DJ who goes by the name “Fumes” has built a large following on Twitter and Tumblr by voicing strong objection to white appropriation of African-American culture, calling out white privilege in all its forms and targeting the fashion industry for what she describes as “Columbusing, colonizing and exploiting” black culture for profit without acknowledging the centuries of suffering, discrimination and exploitation that helped inform black Americans’ unique cultural expressions.

In this exclusive TYTInterview, Fumes and The Young Turks’ Ana Kasparian discuss:

- Their Twitter feud over “white feminism” that led to this interview
- What cultural appropriation looks like
- Allure Magazine’s celebration of Kylie Jenner’s cornrows
- The complicated history and expression of black hair
- Why everyone in American culture is encouraged to look “as European as possible.”
- Whether calling out celebrities for appropriating black culture is acceptable
- Why Rachel Doleful has no right to pretend to be black
- The #BlackLivesMatter movement activists who disrupted Bernie Sanders’ rallies
- White feminism as a subset of white privilege
- Why white - and black - feminists need to understand and celebrate “intersectionality.”
