Rep Kevin McCarthy is gearing up for a run to become the next Speaker, so he went on Hannity’s show to prove his Conservative accolades.

During the Planned Parenthood hearing, Rep Grothman asked what the purpose is of Planned Parenthood since as a guy, he can go anywhere for healthcare. Bernie Sanders spoke out about how Pres Obama took too long to realize that the GOP hates him and will never work with him. John is comforted by Sanders recognizing the atmosphere, since Obama didn’t. Jeb Bush spoke with an NFL show on SiriusXM and voiced his support for the Redskins name. Video of his answer, claiming that Native American tribes don’t find it offensive, either. Coincidentally, Redskins owner Dan Snyder recently gave $100,000 to the Super PAC that supports Jeb.
Ana joins Ben for SCS. Apple app store has rejected an app called Drones Plus, that shows areas where drone strikes have happened. Apple claimed it was excessively crude, unentertaining, or objectionable content. 8 players from Iran’s female soccer team are being accused of being men posing as women. Iran is very open to gender reassignment surgery and trans issues. Ben isn’t buying that these players are transgender women, but simply men being put on the team as ringers. Discussion about the potential of this becoming an issue in American sports. The Saudi prince accused of raping a woman in his Beverly Hills home has posted the $300K bail and flew out of the country on a private jet. Ana doesn’t think it’s likely that he’ll return to face the rape charges.

Azealia Banks is in the news after getting into an argument on a flight with a couple over luggage where she called the man a fucking faggot. Once she caught hell for her language online, she doubled down. Talk about bags while flying. A study out of Stanford found that people who look to deny the existence of White privilege tend to claim hardships of their own. They take White privilege to mean that they didn’t earn anything they have.

Cenk hosting. The Pope spoke to Congress today and Cenk admits he kind of loves him. Reading through some of his progressive stances that clearly line up with Catholic belief. After the speech, the Pope greeted the huge crowd from a balcony and while standing next to him, Boehner couldn’t hold back tears. Video of this crying session as well as one moment where Marco Rubio appeared to be crying during the speech. Cenk doesn’t believe Rubio was crying when the subject was on immigrants. Just late last year, Rubio criticized the Pope for his stance on America working toward an agreement with Cuba. One Republican Congressman refused to attend the Pope’s appearance, claiming that since he’s acting like a Leftist politician, he’ll treat him like one.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. After Kanye West mentioned that he wanted to run for president one day, Vanity Fair followed up on that assertion in a new interview. He pointed out that he’s really going to do it and needs to do his research in the next 5 years. He also said that Ben Carson is a brilliant guy, which prompted Cenk to determine that Kanye isn’t very bright. A young Mexican girl fought through adoring crowds to get a note to the Pope during his visit. Her letter detailed her concerns over deportation of her parents even though she’s an American citizen. Cenk can’t get over how this girl didn’t write this sophisticated letter. Former UFC fighter David Abbott is challenging Ronda Rousey to a match.

30% of Iowa Republicans believe that Islam should be outlawed in America. 21% said they’re not sure.

He told another host that he doesn’t want everyone to vote, only the people that vote for him, since so many people are stupid. Jeremy Corbyn’s win to become the head of UK’s Labour Party has panned out to large numbers of people joining the Party. Cenk sees this as a worldwide trend; that Progressives are the voice of the general population. Outline of Corbyn agenda.
New research shows that more people have died while trying to take a selfie than those in a shark attack. The victims tried to take selfies in dangerous situations.

When his mother found out, the teacher openly admitted her superstition and is being backed up by the school. Syracuse Univ has decided to suspend their Kiss Cam that is featured at football games. People complain that the tradition promotes male entitlement and unwanted kisses. Both Cenk and Ana think this restriction is ridiculous.

Donald Trump went back to Hewitt’s radio show and gave a rambling answer on his position regarding global warming. Video of his empty answer. John goes unchained on his stupid answer. Afghanistan’s practice of child sex abuse continues while American troops are stationed there and experience the horror. Since they are our allies, troops are told to stay out of it and are sent away if they interfere. The latest comments from Ted Nugent on Facebook that suggest Israel was responsible for the 9/11 attacks is the latest instance that confirms Cenk’s worry that Conservatives have opened Pandora’s Box on hating the next group after Black people and Muslims. Jews were previously off limits until Ann Coulter attacked during the GOP debate.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Kim Davis interview with ABC News was filled with self aggrandizing quotes and clueless disdain for gay people. Videos of some moments. She went on to say that the Constitution doesn’t guarantee dignity for everyone. The new owner of a drug that treats parasitic infections appeared on news shows to defend his incredible price hike.

Bill Maher feels Ahmed should get an apology, however, he feels in the last 30 years that young muslims have caused some serious violence.
Ana joins Cenk for SCS. The House has voted to defund Planned Parenthood. It is a symbolic vote since it cannot pass the Senate or the President’s desk. A man claimed that Black Lives Matter activists spray painted obscenities all over his van that had “Police Lives Matter” on it. It turned out he did the vandalism himself. He called out for financial help, which got him over $5000 from suckers that hate the movement. An ex hedge fund manager bought the rights to a drug that treats a life threatening parasitic infection only to raise the price from $13 to $750.

Cenk is hosting. There were several funny moments during the debate. Trumps weird facial expressions, Jeb bush standing on his tippy toes, high fives, and awkward handshakes. During the debate, Trump and Fiorina attack each other on bad business they have done in jobs. Fiorina talks about what she had done with companies, however some of the things she did was misleading. Trump was telling the truth about how bad she did with H.P. Fiorina was fired and she is considered the worst CEO of all time according to NY Times. Cenk points out that the reason Carly Fiorina is running for president is to be the attacker of Hillary Clinton without being seen as the sexist GOP. This was illustrated when one big conservative Super PAC gave $5 million to Cruz’ campaign, it also gave $500K to Carly’s campaign. One of her fundraisers admitted that they told her they want her in the race to attack Hillary.

Cenk and Ana for SCS to start the show. A 14 year old Muslim high school student was arrested after showing up to school in Irving, TX with a clock he built for a science project. The teachers got scared when they thought it was a bomb and called police. The boy likes to tinker and build things. The mayor of Irving released a statement touting the safety protocol of the school standards for safety, without apology. She also has a history of pushing Islamophobia within the town a few years ago when she pushed local officials to act against the “Sharia Law” that was infiltrating the city. The picture of the kid being taken away in handcuffs with his NASA t-shirt on had an emotional effect on Ana. The positive reaction to the kid was wonderful, including President Obama offering him a trip to the White House. Comedian Steve Rannazzisi has admitted to lying about his story of where he was on 9/11. His story detailed how he was inside the South Tower of the WTC and his escape.
