‘Snark Week’ gets bloody as both campaigns get nasty and Biden stands his ground
Candidates and surrogates from both campaigns got nasty this “Snark Week,” with insults flying from all directions. Cenk and Michael “Epic Politics Man” Shure weigh in on Joe Biden’s defiant non-apology and the racial undertones of Republican talking points.
In some US states, it’s easier to qualify to own a gun than vote in a national election
Cenk, Ana Kasparian, Michael Shure, and Jayar Jackson challenge the Republican idea that there’s rampant voter fraud in the US. “I’m more likely to die from a coconut,” Kasparian says. Since 2000, there have been only 10 documented cases of national elect voter fraud, but 1500 coconut-related deaths. And in Pennsylvania, there are less requirements for obtaining a gun than there are to vote.
Cenk: #ChavisCarter reenactment video ‘made me believe police story less’
Cenk and Brown University Professor Tricia Rose talk about the ongoing speculation — and lack of evidence — that Chavis Carter killed himself while in police custody. Cenk says, “I see the [reenactment] video and I think, why would the kid do that? It actually made me believe their story less.” Rose says, “There is no civilian review board. There are systematic ways to avoid the suspicion, to prevent the history of extraordinary racial profiling.”
