Description: Our next president is stupid and racist. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go"The Lewis-Trump fracas started Saturday, when Lewis told NBC's “Meet the Press” that he didn't see Trump as a legitimate president and wouldn't be attending the inauguration for the first time in 30 years.[Rep. John Lewis’s books sell out following Donald Trump’s attacks]Trump struck back on Twitter, saying that Lewis needed to focus on his congressional district in Georgia, “which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results.”Trump said Lewis is “All talk, talk, talk — no action or results.”...Lewis's statements made him the first prominent Democrat to claim that Russia's alleged hacking of the presidential election made Trump's presidency illegitimate.The feud dominated TV news shows just days before the inauguration. And it contributed to a growing number of lawmakers who have said they will not be attending the inauguration.”*Read more here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/01/16/some-democrats-are-criticizing-john-lewiss-legitimate-jab-at-trump-that-means-it-worked/?utm_term.f99e58cfc96fHosts: Cenk Uygur, John IadarolaCast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola***The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Sure it’s good to talk to your voters, but sometimes it’s just easier to sneak out the back door. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "One day after voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a Republican Congressman in Colorado was caught sneaking out the backdoor of a community meeting on Saturday after being overwhelmed by constituents concerned over the future of their healthcare. U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman had invited Colorado voters to the Aurora Central Library in suburban Denver to meet "one-on-one" with the lawmaker and "discuss the issues that are important to them." However, with the meeting scheduled one day after Coffman voted in favor of a budget resolution that paves the way for ACA repeal and co-authored a Denver Post op-ed defending the move, the congressman was apparently overwhelmed by hundreds of constituents who wanted answers regarding the healthcare cuts. According to reporting, people were kept in a waiting area while only four at a time were allowed to meet with the representative. After Coffman spoke with roughly 70 individuals, he reportedly snuck out the back door. Coffman's exit marked a very literal exemplification of the critique that the Republican party is simply going to "repeal and run," as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) has put it, rather than work to improve healthcare for millions of Americans. Krondia Siebert told local News 9 that she "just wanted Coffman to hear her concerns," the outlet reported. "But, she ended up trying to organize the crowd that gathered outside the large community room," which eventually broke into a chorus of "This Land is Your Land.”* Read more here: http://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/01/16/overwhelmed-voters-angry-about-aca-repeal-gop-rep-sneaks-out-backdoor Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

The swamp is so drained right now… John Iadarola and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join "A startup that is partially owned by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner's brother was reportedly invited to a White House roundtable that Kushner helped organize in June. The Wall Street Journal reported Friday Friday that the CEO of OpenGov, a government software company which is partially controlled by a venture-capital firm owned by Joshua Kushner, was invited to a White House roundtable event. The firm, Thrive Capital, is one of four investors listed on OpenGov's website. Zachary Bookman, OpenGov's CEO, attended the roundtable, which was a major breakthrough for the company that had not previously worked with the federal government. He told the Journal that he was invited to the summit because OpenGov is "recognized as an industry leader for our work at the state and local level.””* Read more here: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/342051-startup-linked-to-jared-kushner-got-a-seat-at-trumps-white-house Hosts: John Iadarola, Ana Kasparian Cast: John Iadarola, Ana Kasparian *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

You won't believe the stock market shenanigans Tom Price has been up to… or will you? Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go “Rep. Tom Price, Donald Trump’s pick for Health and Human Services Secretary bought thousands of dollars worth of shares in a medical device manufacturer days before introducing legislation to delay an industry regulation that would directly hurt the manufacturer, CNN reports. Price bought between $1,001 to $15,000 worth of stock in Zimmer Biomet, an Indiana based firm that produces orthopedics products, in March 2016. According to CNN, the following week, Price introduced the HIP Act, a bill designed to delay a new regulation that would harm Zimmer Biomet’s bottom line. The bill involved a new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regulation that changed how manufacturers like Zimmer Biomet receive Medicare reimbursement. Price objected to the regulation, even spearheading a letter to Andy Slavitt, acting administrator of CMS. According to CNN, two days after Price’s letter to Slavitt, Zimmer Biomet PAC donated $1,000 to Price’s reelection campaign. Three months later, after Price introduced the legislation, the PAC donated another $1,000. Larry Nombel, general counsel at the watchdog group Campaign Legal Center, told CNN if Price “believed in the bill, he should not have purchased the stock.””* Read more here: https://www.rawstory.com/2017/01/busted-trump-hhs-pick-introduced-legislation-benefitting-medical-company-2-weeks-after-buying-their-stock/ Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Rep. John Lewis doesn’t believe Donald Trump legitimately won the election. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Rep. John Lewis will not be attending Trump's inaugural, nor does he believe Trump is a legitimately-elected president. Rep. John Lewis, a Democratic congressman from Georgia and civil-rights icon, told NBC's Chuck Todd in an interview for Sunday's "Meet the Press" that he believes Russia's alleged hacking aimed at helping Trump in the 2016 race makes Trump an illegitimate president. Asked whether he would forge a relationship with President-elect Trump, Lewis said, "It's going to be very difficult. I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president." He added: "I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton." Lewis called it a "conspiracy" and added: "That's not right. That's not fair. That's not the open democratic process." Lewis added that he won't attend Trump's inauguration, which he said is unprecedented in his 30-year congressional career.”* Read more here: http://crooksandliars.com/2017/01/john-lewis-says-trumps-presidency Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Elizabeth Warren questioned Ben Carson on whether he would prevent Donald Trump from profiting from his office. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break down Ben Carson’s answer. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “During his confirmation hearing Thursday, Ben Carson repeatedly refused to guarantee that money from the Department of Housing and Urban Development would not go to benefit President-elect Donald Trump or his family. “Among the billions of dollars that you will be handing out in grants and loans, can you just assure us that not one dollar will go to benefit either the president-elect or his family?” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) asked. “I can assure you that the things that I do are driven by a sense of morals and values,” Carson responded. “And therefore I will absolutely not play favorites for anyone.” Carson is Trump’s nominee to run HUD, an anti-poverty agency charged with federal affordable housing efforts.” Read more here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ben-carson-warren-hud-money-trump_us_5877b575e4b06df924cb32e7 Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Christian pregnancy clinics are suing for the right to lie to their clients. Ana Kasparian and Brett Erlich, the hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/ “Last week Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed a law into effect requiring pregnancy-care centers inform clients about all available reproductive health services, including access to contraception and abortion. Conservative Christian groups are not happy. A day after the law took effect, the Alliance Defending Freedom filed a lawsuit on behalf of A Place for Women in Waipoi, a church-operated crisis pregnancy center, and five other Hawaiian centers affiliated with the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates. They argue that the new law infringes on the centers’ rights to free speech and exercise of religion. Those who don’t comply can be fined $500 for a first-time offense and $1,000 for any subsequent act of noncompliance. The law also allows pregnant women to sue noncomplying clinics they received services from for damages. “State sponsored anti-life activists are so in love with abortion that they want to suppress the free speech rights of pro-life pregnancy centers in Hawaii and force them to become abortion referral agencies,” said NIFLA president Thomas Glessner in an April statement. “They cannot tolerate the existence of life-affirming pregnancy centers that give mothers contemplating abortion hope and support as they are empowered to choose life.” The law was submitted by Hawaii’s Women’s Legislative Caucus and requires that all centers providing pregnancy- or family-planning related services inform their clients of access to state reproductive health programs. According to the text, the legislation is designed to ensure women can “make and implement informed, timely, and personally appropriate reproductive health decisions.” Read more here: http://www.thedailybeast.com/hawaii-mandates-contraception-education-conservative-christians-sue Hosts: Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich Cast: Ana Kasparian, Brett Erlich *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

A new generation of dads are redefining fatherhood. Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, and Jayde Lovell, hosts of The Young Turks, tell you what millennial dads are willing to give up to spend more time with their kids. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “More than half of millennial fathers want to be demoted into a less stressful job in order to be better fathers, according to a report released on Monday. As experts warn of a “fatherhood penalty” for men who want to be more involved in the upbringing of their children, 53% of millennial fathers told researchers they wanted to move to a less stressful job, while 48% would take a pay cut to achieve a better work-life balance. One-fifth of fathers said their employer was unsympathetic about childcare, expecting no disruption to work, while 44% had lied to their employer about family-related responsibilities that “get in the way” of work. The 2017 Modern Families Index, published on Monday, found that while nearly half of working fathers (47%) want to downshift to a less stressful job because they cannot balance the demands of work and family life, and just over a third would be willing to take a pay cut to achieve a better work-life balance, those figures increase for younger fathers – indicating a seismic change in workforce mentality.” Read more here: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/jan/16/half-of-fathers-want-less-stressful-job-to-help-more-with-child-rearing Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Jayde Lovell Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, Jayde Lovell *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
