Report: Fox News Pulls Judge Andrew Napolitano Following Trump Wiretap Comments

napolitano Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News’ senior judicial analyst, has been pulled from the network, according to a new report out tonight. The L.A. Times reports that Napolitano has been “taken off the air” after comments he made last week about President Trump‘s wiretapping claims became a major issue. Napolitano said that according to sources, the Obama administration went to British intelligence agency GCHQ to surveil Trump. Sean Spicer cited it at a press briefing, and the end result here was that GCHQ slammed the claim in a statement and Fox anchors had to state for the record that the news division could not corroborate those claims. Per the L.A. Times:
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future.

‘You’re Fired’: Trump Axes Big Bird in Kimmel Segment Mocking PBS Cuts

Jimmy Kimmel took aim last night at Donald Trump’s proposed budget that would enact deep cuts across a number of federal agencies. “President Trump released his proposed budget today,” said Kimmel. “There are a lot of cuts in the plan, including PBS would be cut, Meals on Wheels would be cut, the National Endowment for the Arts. The guy who has three oil painting of himself in his bathroom wants to cut the National Endowment for the Arts,” he quipped in disbelief. Cutting PBS, the longtime host of Sesame Street, prompted Kimmel to ponder the implications with an Apprentice spoof showing Trump firing Big Bird. “I say you’re fired,” said Trump “I guess we’ll have to find a new place to live,” said a despondent Big Bird. “It’s too bad, but that’s the way it goes,” said Trump looking at his son, Donald Trump Jr. Kimmel closed the segment Continue reading "‘You’re Fired’: Trump Axes Big Bird in Kimmel Segment Mocking PBS Cuts"

U.S. National Soccer Team Passes Rule Requiring Players to Stand for Anthem

shutterstock_541713991 Last year, we posted several times about longtime U.S. women’s soccer player Megan Rapinoe, who began kneeling for the National Anthem prior to games, in a protest inspired by NFL player Colin Kaepernick. First she knelt prior to club games, then she did so prior to National tea games. U.S. Soccer, which runs the National team, condemned the protest at the time. And now, they have passed a rule banning it altogether. Per The New York Times and Fox Soccer analyst Stuart Holden, U.S. Soccer now has a rule on the books which states: “All persons representing a Federation national team shall stand respectfully during the playing of the national anthems at any event in which the Federation is represented.”
