CNN GOP Presidential Town Hall: The Young Turks Summary

Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola of The Young Turks break down the CNN GOP Presidential Town Hall.

Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola of The Young Turks break down part one the GOP Presidential Town Hall which aired on CNN this Wednesday night, or as Cenk called it, the almost three hour long infomercial for the Republican party.

I agree with Cenk and John completely on Anderson Cooper's pitiful performance and the string of softball questions he lobbed at the three participants, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz and the huge difference between the way they were treated and the Democrats, who participated in a similar event a couple of weeks ago.

Uygur was tweeting during the event. I'll share a few of those here as well.

Expect more of the same during round two.
