Al Sharpton

Professional confidence man Al Sharpton has come out swinging at rapper Travis Scott for daring to accept a slot during the Super Bowl halftime show even though other black performers have agreed to boycott because of the league’s actions concerning Colin Kaepernick.

Gossip site TMZ sought out Sharpton who criticized Scott for somehow wanting it “both ways.”

“I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues,” Sharpton said.

“You can’t tell people to stand for those that take a knee and don’t go to the games and then say, ‘But somebody ought to perform there and entertain.’ You’re drawing TV viewers, you’re bringing supporters, and I think that you can’t have it both ways,” the Tawana Brawley scandalmonger added.

According to Breitbart Sports:

To date, Travis Scott is the only performer willing to join Maroon 5 to play for the upcoming Super Bowl halftime show after a growing list of black performers publicly announced that they would never accept an invitation to play as long as former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick is left unsigned by any team.

Kaepernick, who invented the protest against the country during the national anthem, turned free agent at the tail of the 2016 season but has since found no NFL team interested in signing him. He has stayed out of the league since the start of the 2017 season, unable to continue his pro football career.

In support of Kaepernick, a number of stars have announced their disinterest in performing at the game including Cardi B, Adele and Jay-Z. Singer Pink also dissed NFL over Kaepernick’s plight.

It will be interesting to see if Scott sticks by his initial choice of accepting the Super Bowl gig or if he will cave in to all the pressure to bail out.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
