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.

Howard Stern Says Donald Trump Secretly ‘Loves’ Mike Bloomberg: ‘He Knows How Strong The Guy Is’

Radio shock jock Howard Stern should probably stick to the same old tired oversexualized schtick he used to discuss on his program because his attempts at doing political commentary leave a whole lot to be desired, as you’ll see for yourself when you read his comments about President Trump and Michael Bloomberg. According to Stern, Trump, who has been feuding with the president during a very heated Democratic Party presidential primary, secretly loves Bloomberg. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “I’ve talked to Donald a million times privately about Bloomberg. We both agree that he was one of the best f—ing mayors on the planet,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “Donald loves Bloomberg,” he added. “That’s why he doesn’t want him running.” Trump has escalated his attacks on Bloomberg in recent weeks, mocking his height and debate performance as the Democrat pours hundreds of millions of dollars into his campaign. But Stern asserted it’s all a farce. “He knows how strong the guy is,” Stern said. “He loves him. We all love him. Donald would even say, ‘He’s better than I am.'” Stern went on to say that if Bloomberg cinched the nomination it would result in a “hell of a debate” between the two billionaires, going so far as to say that people who voted for Trump would vote for Bloomberg. As of right now, Bloomberg is polling in third place, though he is not participating in the primaries due to be held before Super Tuesday.

President Trump Rips Into CNN’s Jim Acosta After Being Accused Of Lying: ‘Worst Record In The History Of Broadcasting’

Published

President Trump, the world’s foremost expert in counterpunching against the leftist mainstream media, recently came out with fists of fury flying — in a proverbial sense — against CNN’s Jim Acosta after the reporter accused him of lying. During an afternoon press conference during his time in India, Acosta asked President Trump if he would make a pledge not to accept foreign assistance in the 2020 election, to which the president stated, “I want no help from any country.” Here’s how the rest of the incident played out via The Washington Examiner: “I haven’t been given help from any country. And if you see what CNN, your wonderful network said, I guess they apologized in a way for — didn’t they apologize for saying certain things that weren’t true?” the president inquired of Acosta, referring to CNN’s coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election. “Mr. President, I think our record on delivering the truth is a lot better than yours sometimes, if you don’t mind me saying,” Acosta said to Trump, who fired back at the anchor’s history of reporting. “Your record is so bad, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. You probably have the worst record in the history of broadcasting,” Trump said. The president and CNN have a track record of hostility with one another, something that is completely understandable given the fact that CNN and other left-wing networks have dedicated their air time to pushing narratives that aren’t fully factual in a bid to undermine the current administration. Trump, unlike previous presidents, isn’t afraid to dish out what he gets first, which is one reason so many people love him. The question now is when will Acosta learn to stop being so hostile and actually do his job?
