THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05 – Banning NRA shirts? A teacher at Lodi High School in California’s Central Valley last week sent a sophomore to the principal’s office because he thought the shirt violated dress code by advertising the National Rifle Association. The school district said it did not. Now the school is apologizing for their actions. Why can’t students advertise who they support?
12:20 – Banning NRA Shirts/In God We Trust
12:35 – Banning The Pledge? Students at an Atlanta school will no longer say the Pledge of Allegiance to start their school day. Elementary campus president Lara Zelski told parents it has become “increasingly obvious” during the past couple of years that more people were choosing not to stand or recite the pledge. Also, teachers will work with students to create a school pledge that will focus on civic responsibility to the students’ “school family, community, country and our global society.” What is wrong with showing pride for the United States?

1:05 – Fighting Mueller! Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Trump, said Wednesday that the president’s legal team turned down the latest interview proposal from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and promised to not allow the president to “walk into a perjury trap.” Mueller’s team has put forward dozens of potential questions for Trump, including some about his firing of FBI Director James Comey. Trump’s lawyers have argued that prosecutors can’t ask Trump about actions he’s taken while in office. Shouldn’t Mueller respect the office of the President?
1:20 – Too Close To Call Still in OH and KS
1:35 – Attacking Mike Pence’s Faith…AGAIN? In an op-ed in the New York Times, Frank Bruni described Vice President Mike Pence as a “holy terror waiting in the wings” if President Trump is impeached, as well as“a bigot, also a liar. also cruel.” But Focus on the Family’s Glenn Stanton makes the case that “he’s a Christian who actually believes what Christians actually believe. Imagine that.” What’s wrong with having a man of faith as the Vice President of the United States?
