THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05 – The Left Attacks! Members of Antifa were seen launching eggs, fireworks and water bottles at police officers and the Secret Service, beating people in the street and threatening members of the media during the uber-left, so-called anti-fascist group’s counter-protest of rightwing rallies this weekend in Washington, D.C. and Virginia. The rallies, which drew about 40 alt-right or pro-white nationalist demonstrators to Charlottesville, occurred to mark the one-year anniversary of the violence in that Virginia city that left one woman dead. So what’s to be done with the out of control left.

Whoa. This @DCPoliceDept officer was nearly mobbed by a group of counterprotesters at #UniteTheRight2. People were throwing things at him, shoving him and kicking his motorcycle. Looks like another cop was also in the mix, too. pic.twitter.com/IHoc5dvebW

12:35 – Whacky Omarosa! President Trump blasted “Wacky” Omarosa Manigault-Newman on Monday after she leaked a secretly taped phone call with him amid promotion of her new book, calling her “vicious, but not smart” and saying White House Chief of Staff John Kelly considered her a “loser.” “Wacky Omarosa, who got fired 3 times on the Apprentice, now got fired for the last time. She never made it, never will. She begged me for a job, tears in her eyes, I said Ok. People in the White House hated her. She was vicious, but not smart,” Trump tweeted on Monday. But is Omarosa in REAL trouble for taping all these people in the White House?
GUEST – Special Assistant to President Trump & White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley
12:50 – Wacky Omarosa!
THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:35 – High School Bullying For Trump Support! A group of history school teachers in Massachusetts pledged to reject teaching objectivity while they conspired to hide their anti-Trump prejudice, emails show. A parent of a Newton North High School student said Monday that the prejudice began after his son was among a group of students that attended a Trump rally a few years back. Ed Urquiola said that his son and the other students were subjected to anti-Semitic and hateful comments after their photo was taken at the rally. Should something be done about indoctrinations in schools?

THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
2:05 – Police Boycotting the NFL? NFL players continued to protest during “The Star-Spangled Banner” on Thursday night as the league began the first full week of its 2018 preseason. And now two police unions in Florida are taking a stand against the Miami Dolphins over national anthem protests. Broward County PBA Vice President Rod Skirvin told the Miami Herald that the action was a “slap in the face.” The PBA posted on its Facebook page that it is encouraging its members to call the team’s ticket office and request a refund. The post stated that its members were also offered game ticket discounts because the team had previously said players who protest could be suspended up to four games. Should more police organizations follow their lead?
