THE THIRD HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
2:05pm – War On Christmas! Washington’s Metro has rejected a Catholic ad campaign that promotes “spiritual giving” instead of presents, arguing that the image of stars, shepherds and sheep promotes religion, a violation of the transit system’s rules. The Archdiocese of Washington told Secrets that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority turned down a request to promote its “Find the Perfect Gift” initiative because the image “depicts a religious scene and thus seeks to promote religion,” although it does not include a manger scene, Christ figure or even a cross.

THE SECOND HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
1:05pm- On Alert! The intercontinental ballistic missile launched Tuesday by North Korea was ordered up a day earlier by dictator Kim Jong Un, who boasted it showed the entire United States is now within striking distance of the Hermit Kingdom. North Korea said it fired its “greatest ICBM” it called Hwasong-15 that was “significantly more” powerful and could be armed with a “super-large heavy nuclear warhead.” The regime claimed it is capable of striking the “whole mainland” of the U.S. State TV said Kim gave the order on Tuesday. “Test launch is approved. Taking place at the daybreak of Nov. 29! Fire with courage for the party and country!” a photo of Kim’s signed order stated. The ICBM was fired at 2:48 a.m. Wednesday North Korea time, the regime’s Korean Central News Agency said in a statement hours after the launch. It reach a height of 2,796 miles and traveled 596 miles, demonstrating the potential to reach a range of 8,100 miles.
Reform! Senate Republicans are hoping for tax reform by Christmas, but they still need to make sure to get a few more members of their party on board first. In order to do that, GOP lawmakers are considering different measures to garner more support, including implementing an automatic trigger that would raise taxes if the legislation failed to garner as much revenue as expected. Republicans only have two votes to spare in the Senate, where they hold a 52 to 48 edge. Vice President Mike Pence would break the tie, if needed.

THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05pm- You’re Fired! On the same day the giant Christmas tree is being lit outside NBC studios at Rockefeller Center in New York City, the network dumped one of its biggest stars. “Today” show co-host Matt Lauer was fired Wednesday due to inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace, an incident “Today” honchos said they learned about just two days ago. Lauer’s stunned co-anchor Savannah Guthrie was joined by Hoda Kotb to announce the news on “Today.” “This is a sad morning here at ‘Today’ and at NBC News,” Guthrie said before reading a note from NBC News Chairman Andy Lack.
12:20pm- Scandals in DC! At least two Democrats called on Rep. John Conyers to step down Tuesday after a second accuser said the longest-serving member of the House propositioned her for sex in a Washington hotel room. Former staffer Deanne Maher said she was stunned to silence as Conyers stripped down to his underwear and ate sandwiches in front of her, she told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “I had my nightclothes on,” said Maher, who was married at the time of the harrowing encounter. “I was just scared to death.” “He didn’t go naked. He was down to his skivvies,” Maher said. “He sat there eating sandwiches and then he stormed out and slammed the door. I was so embarrassed and ashamed of myself for being so stupid. I needed a job.”
