Thom explains that President Eisenhower wasn’t perfect, but he didn’t spread hate like Trump or submit to the moneyed interests.

Billionaire Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, shifted his position on cuts in Social Security and Medicare on the eve of his visit to Capitol Hill for meetings with Republican congressional leaders. After claiming to reject such cuts throughout the Republican primary campaign—distancing himself from rivals who all backed one or another version of “entitlement reform”—Trump signaled Wednesday that he was reversing his position: here.

Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

Republicans Will Nominate National Embarrassment Donald Trump

Donald Trump Just Won Indiana — And The Republican Nomination: here.

Billionaire Donald Trump and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the Republican and Democratic primaries in Indiana Tuesday. The Trump victory was particularly significant, since it effectively clinches the Republican nomination for a fascistic candidate who has campaigned on a program of racist attacks on immigrants and Muslims, extreme nationalism and militarism, including supporting torture and mass killing of civilians: here.

Glenn Beck Keeps Saying God Chose Ted Cruz

3 May 2016

If you ever wanted a reason to NOT vote for Ted Cruz, you have only to…well, look at him yeah, but listen to him. And listen to his supporters, who are as vile in their own way as Trump’s. Look at Glenn Beck, who says in no uncertain terms that Cruz has been sent by his God to rule over us…

Cruz Advocates Spanking Young Heckler

2 May 2016

A young heckler shouted at Ted Cruz during a campaign stop in Indiana. Cruz responded by saying he longed for the days when you could spank your children. Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“On Sunday, Sen. Ted Cruz suggested that the best response to a young protester who yelled “you suck” during a campaign rally in Indiana would be a good spanking. It’s the second time the Republican presidential candidate has brought up the controversial form of physical punishment on the campaign trail.

“Children should actually speak with respect,” Cruz said. …

Cruz then shared some parenting advice from his own family. “You know, in my household, when a child behaves that way, they get a spanking,” he continued, prompting cheers from the crowd.”

In the nineteenth century, Republican party president Abraham Lincoln used to deal with hecklers by replying to them wittily. Now, in 2016, prospective Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump deals with them by advocating violence. And so does his rival Ted Cruz.

Cruz Appoints Fiorina Vice President Of Imagination Land

27 April 2016

Major news! Ted Cruz has decided he’s going to name his pick for Vice President: Carly Fiorina. Now all he has to do is go back in time and prevent his past self from constantly losing primaries. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) intends to name former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential running mate if he succeeds in winning the GOP nomination, multiple sources reported Wednesday.

Cruz’s move is seen as a last-minute gambit in hopes of shaking up the race and blocking front-runner Donald Trump, who easily swept five primary states across the Northeast on Tuesday.”

Ted Cruz Tries Pandering To Indiana Hoosiers Fans, Fails

27 April 2016

Ted Cruz desperately needs to win Indiana to have any chance at a brokered convention, and the nomination. He recently bungled an attempt at pandering to a crowd of Indiana Hoosiers fans. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“In what will henceforth be remembered as Ted’s Terrible Tuesday, Ted Cruz (R-Texas) bricked big in the night’s primaries and in an even more damning misstep, he completely botched a re-enactment of the timeless movie “Hoosiers” when he called a basketball hoop a “ring.”

Cruz chose to hold a rally outside Indianapolis at the gym where the iconic basketball movie was filmed. The GOP presidential candidate has touted his love of the 1986 film, which tells the inspiring tale of a small-town high school basketball coach played by Gene Hackman who leads his team to the state championship. Cruz elected to stump in Indiana instead of hanging around for a primary drubbing in five northeastern states.”
