THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
2:05pm – Latest on Moore! The Alabama woman who accused Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexually groping her when she was 14 and he was 32 said she has suffered financially and personally since coming out with her story but still feels as if a “weight has been lifted.” Leigh Corfman, 53, said she was not paid for talking to the Washington Post about her experience with Moore and hasn’t profited in any way from the scandal. “If anything, this has cost me,” Corfman told NBC’s “Today” show on Monday, explaining she’s had to take a leave of absence from her job. “I have no tickets to Tahiti and my bank account has not flourished. If anything it has gone down because currently I’m not working.” She said her encounter with Moore in 1979 affected her personal life.
2:30pm- Snowflakes! Brooklyn College is kowtowing to cop-hating students by directing officers who need a bathroom break to the broken-down facilities in a building on the far edge of campus. Amid a planned petition drive to ban cops from the taxpayer-funded campus, Donald Wenz, the school’s director of public safety, told the student newspaper The Excelsior that he’s trying to keep New York’s Finest out of sight. While Wenz said all of the school’s restrooms were technically open to cops, the college prefers they stick to those in the isolated West End Building, “rather than walking across either quad to use the bathroom.”
2:50pm- Charles Manson DEAD at 83!
THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:05pm- Booted From Basketball! A Muslim student athlete who refused to observe the national anthem for religious reasons at a basketball game in Kansas has been kicked off the team following altercations with a team supporter, who accused him of disrespecting the American flag, and a coach. The case has ignited concerns over whether Garden City Community College violated the First Amendment rights of 19-year-old Rasool Samir, who continued shooting balls after his teammates returned to the locker room during the anthem at a Nov. 1 game against Sterling College. Samir withdrew from classes after losing his athletic scholarship and has since returned home to Philadelphia, said Lauren Bonds, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas. The ACLU contends Samir did not participate in the anthem because he believes his Muslim faith prohibits acts of reverence to anything but God. NOW: Jim Howard has been booted from the Booster Club, he was voted off the board! Guest: Jim Howard
1:30pm- Guest: Mike Rowe, Popular TV host, pitchman and manufacturing advocate TBN is bringing his CNN show “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” over to their network. The show will follow “Huckabee” on Saturday evenings beginning December 2nd.

12:05pm- Slam Dunk! President Trump on Sunday responded to the father of one of the UCLA basketball players detained in China on shoplifting charges after the man snubbed the president’s successful effort to get the teammates released, saying, “I should have left them in jail.” The president responded after LaVar Ball, the outspoken father of UCLA player LiAngelo Ball, downplayed Trump’s effort. Trump said while on his recent trip to Asia, at the same time the players allegedly shoplifted in China during a basketball tournament, that he had spoken directly with Chinese President Xi Jinping about the matter.
12:20pm- Stand Up! President Trump on Monday slammed a top NFL player who sat for “The Star-Spangled Banner” but stood for Mexico’s national anthem, and offered a new directive: suspend him for the “remainder of the season.” Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the majority of the U.S. national anthem, but stood for the Mexican anthem before his team’s game Sunday against the New England Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City. “Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect!” Trump tweeted. “Next time NFL should suspend him for the remainder of the season. Attendance and ratings way down.”
