Hour 1: Cenk, Ana, and John hosting. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of marriage equality nationwide. Video of President Obama’s words after the ruling came down. Although Obama was insincere about his stance on gay rights in the past, Cenk welcomes his part in changing the opinion of the country on the issue. Justices Scalia and Roberts both wrote very scathing dissenting opinions on the gay marriage ruling.
Hour 2: Hannah Cranston replaces John for SCS. AJ Plus video about a Chinese man that fought gay conversion therapy and won. Bristol Palin has announced that she is pregnant with her 2nd child as she and her fiance broke up. She pointed out that this is a huge disappointment to her family, and asked for privacy. Cenk takes the “low road” and talks about how America treats the Palin’s with kids’ gloves but treats everyone else like a piece of garbage. Facebook has released their diversity numbers in employing more than just White males, and it doesn’t look very diverse.
