THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05 – ICE does the job! The last known Nazi collaborator living in the United States — a 95-year-old former camp guard who played an “indispensable role” in the murders of thousands of Jews — was deported to Germany from his New York City home early Tuesdaymorning, completing what the U.S. ambassador to Germany called a “difficult task.” The previous day, in a special ceremony at the White House on Monday, Trump honored two agencies — Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection. Shouldn’t this stop the #AbolishIce crowd once and for all?
12:20 – GUEST – Special Assistant to President Trump & White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley
12:35 – The Manafort Trial/More Security Clearance Problems?
12:50 – The VMAs get political.
THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:05 – Tearing Down “Silent Sam” A Confederate statue in the heart of North Carolina’s flagship university was toppled Monday night during a rally by hundreds of protesters who decried the memorial known as “Silent Sam” as a symbol of racist heritage. Many students, faculty and alumni have called the statue a racist image and asked officials to remove it, though some argued it was a tribute to fallen ancestors. UNC leaders including Chancellor Carol Folt had previously said state law prevented the school from removing the statue. And this is not the first statue to come down. Will no one be happy until all of them come down?
1:20 – Tearing Down “Silent Sam”
1:35 – GUEST – Thomas Homan – Former Acting Director of ICE and Fox News Contributor on the ICE Ceremony/Nazi Deportation
1:50 – Kavanaugh’s Questions for Monica
2:05 – Toxic Masculinity? In a new video on PragerU, Allie Stuckey explains why it should be perfectly fine for men to be masculine. Stuckey argues that masculinity is not a bad thing. In fact, it is wrong to suggest that masculinity itself is inherently harmful. What’s wrong with men acting like men?
