THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05pm- Deal Or No Deal! The White House on Tuesday pushed back on the notion that President Trump’s “shithole countries” comments derailed negotiations on immigration and spending. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blamed Democrats for the stalled talks. “I think they’re using it as an excuse not to help this president get something accomplished, which I think is a sad day for our country,” she told reporters outside the West Wing. She accused Democrats of being too “willing to throw away the progress in negotiations” on government funding, defense spending and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Trump set off a firestorm in Washington last week when he reportedly used vulgar and insulting language to describe African immigrants during an Oval Office meeting.

2:05pm – Banned! Christian actor Kevin Sorbo has been barred from making an appearance at a Comicon later this year for the simple reason that he is friends with conservatives like Fox News host Sean Hannity. Sorbo, who is known for his role as Hercules in the 1995 movie “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” was turned down from making a celebrity appearance at the East Coast Comicon in New Jersey that will take place in late April. PJ Media reports that event organizer and comic book artist Cliff Galbraith bragged on social media last week about turning away the 59-year-old Sorbo, who holds Christian conservative beliefs and has spoken in the past at Family Research Council’s Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C. In a Facebook post, Galbraith said, “I turned down Kevin Sorbo for East Comicon. He pal’s (SIC) with Sean Hannity.” “I just can’t do it,” Galbraith asserted. Guest: Kevin Sorbo, Christian actor
