Rush Limbaugh Credits POTUS For National Title Game’s Big Ratings: ‘Support For Trump Was Overwhelming’

Last night, President Donald Trump showed up to watch (part of) the college football championship game between Alabama and Georgia, taking the field before the start of the contest to take part in the playing of the national anthem. The way conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh sees it, Trump’s appearance at the game was the reason ESPN saw a big ratings bump for the exciting national championship that went to an overtime finish. During today’s broadcast of The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh tried to make the case that Trump placing his hand on his heart and (attempting) to sing the Star-Spangled Banner brought more eyeballs to the game. Furthermore, he claimed that ratings were down for this past weekend’s NFL playoff games and the Golden Globes because they represent liberalism and a disrespect for the country. “The support for Trump was overwhelming,” Limbaugh declared. “And Continue reading "Rush Limbaugh Credits POTUS For National Title Game’s Big Ratings: ‘Support For Trump Was Overwhelming’"

How to Watch Alabama vs. Georgia College Football National Championship Game Live Stream Online

It’s the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. And just as it was in 2012, it’s an all-SEC affair. The Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Georgia Bulldogs in Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium to decide college football’s national champion. The Crimson Tide slipped up against Auburn to close out the regular season. But they bounced back from that loss in a big way — clobbering Clemson in the semifinal round of the College Football Playoff last Monday. And so after not even qualifying for their conference championship game, Alabama will play for the whole ball of wax on Monday night. SEC Champion Georgia won a thrilling Rose Bowl over Oklahoma in double overtime last Monday. The Jake Fromm-led offense remarkably kept up with and eventually outpaced the prolific Sooner attack. But that unit will have a much more difficult task against the Crimson Tide defense — a unit as talented Continue reading "How to Watch Alabama vs. Georgia College Football National Championship Game Live Stream Online"

Shia LaBeouf Arrested in Georgia for Public Drunkenness, Disorderly Conduct

Shia LaBeouf was arrested in Georgia late last night for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police details what happened leading up to the Transformers actor’s arrest:
Around 4:00 a.m., Shia LaBeouf, 31, approached a bystander and an SCMPD officer near the intersection of Barnard Street and West St. Julian Street, asking for a cigarette. When LaBeouf wasn’t given a cigarette, he became disorderly, using profanities and vulgar language in front of the women and children present. He was told to leave the area and refused, becoming aggressive toward the officer. When the officer attempted to place LaBeouf under arrest, LaBeouf ran to a nearby hotel. LaBeouf was arrested in the hotel lobby, where his disorderly behavior continued.
LaBeouf is in Georgia filming the movie The Peanut Butter Falcon. He was previously arrested in Texas in October 2015 and charged with public intoxication. [image via Continue reading "Shia LaBeouf Arrested in Georgia for Public Drunkenness, Disorderly Conduct"

Donald Trump Jr. Calls Karen Handel, Who Wants Abortion Criminalized, a Feminist Hero

In the wake of former Georgia secretary of state Karen Handel‘s narrow victory in a tight Congressional race against John OssoffDonald Trump, Jr. took to Twitter to congratulate Handel on her oh-so feminist victory in becoming the “first woman Rep. Georgia has sent to Congress.” He also expressed his befuddlement over why, as a woman, Handel wasn’t being honored by celebratory “glass ceiling stories.” “Do conservatives not get them?” he mused. Maybe we in the liberal media with our loathsome double standards for liberal and conservative women will get to writing the stories about Handel shattering “glass ceilings” when we’re done writing stories about Handel shattering other women’s access to abortion and Continue reading "Donald Trump Jr. Calls Karen Handel, Who Wants Abortion Criminalized, a Feminist Hero"

Suburban Moms are Reportedly Driving Jon Osoff’s Campaign

As votes start to roll in for Georgia’s special Congressional election on Tuesday, if 30-year-old Democrat Jon Ossoff manages to win the race against his Republican rival Karen Handel, Ossoff will largely have suburban moms to thank. According to USA Today, they’re driving his campaign largely “driven by guilt over not helping Hillary Clinton enough in 2016,” the report notes. If Handel, Georgia’s former secretary of state, thought she could rely on the votes of women her age in her district, it looks like she has another thing coming, as the 6th district’s suburban moms lead an army of some 11,000 volunteers for Ossoff, knocking on half a million doors to see a Democrat elected. (Maybe as mothers, they took issue with Handel suggesting LGBT couples shouldn’t be allowed to adopt?) USA Today talked to local Johns Creek moms in their forties, some of whom have each knocked on north of 1,500 doors Continue reading "Suburban Moms are Reportedly Driving Jon Osoff’s Campaign"

Like most of the money behind him, the biggest proponents of the hashtag were out of state blue checks looking to tip the scales in his favor.
