THE FIRST HOUR OF THE TODD STARNES SHOW
12:05pm- Roll Tide! President Donald Trump has taken the field before Alabama and Georgia face off in the College Football Playoff National Championship in Atlanta. Tens of thousands of fans filling the $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium greeted Trump with a pretty good reaction as ROTC members escorted him onto the field for the national anthem. Trump sang a few words as he stood with his hand over his heart and an American flag pin on his lapel.
