    Singer-actress Nancy Sinatra blasted members of the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Twitter this week, writing that the “murderous” group members should face a “firing squad” for their support of firearm rights. The “These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” singer has called for tougher gun control measures in the wake of the mass shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this week that claimed the lives of 59 people and left more than 500 others injured. “The murderous members of the NRA should face a firing squad,” Sinatra wrote on Twitter in response to a Daily Kos article posted...

    This is part two of Variety’s two-part cover story with Bruce Springsteen. For part one, click here. If you ran for governor of New Jersey, you’d win — is that ever a temptation? Pssht, nooo. I would have no business in politics. I’m just not interested in policy-making enough. I know people in entertainment who are interested in those things, but I’m a musician. Many people wondered why you didn’t come out in support of Hillary Clinton’s campaign earlier. Was there a reason for that? Um… I don’t think I’m necessarily that essential a factor. And I still tend to...

    Aaron Rodgers said the Packers will once again link arms during the national anthem on Thursday night before Green Bay's game against the Bears. Notably, the two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback also said the team will ask fans to join them in the demonstration of unity, reports's Aaron Nagler. Before Sunday's overtime victory over the Bengals, the Packers linked arms during the anthem while three Packers—Martellus Bennett, Kevin King and Lance Kendricks—chose to kneel. National anthem protests were widespread during Week 3 after president Donald Trump made controversial comments at a campaign rally for Alabama senator Luther Strange. As...

    (CLEVELAND) - LeBron James is referring to President Trump as "that guy" in his response to the NFL protests, and not backing down from earlier comments on Twitter. During the Cleveland Cavaliers media day, the NBA superstar had some harsh words for the President, and his voters. "I think that's one of the biggest problems that we have when it comes to vote time," James said. "People are just not educated on either the individual or the state [of the world]." James went on to say that he realizes that the majority of Ohio voters cast their ballots for Trump...

    A’s outfielder Mark Canha grew up in San Jose and attended Bellarmine High School and Cal. Saturday night, he put his left hand on the right shoulder of teammate Bruce Maxwell, who was the first big-league baseball player to take a knee during the national anthem. Maxwell, who grew up in a military family, cited his experiences with racism in Huntsville, Ala., where President Trump said this week NFL players should be fired for kneeling during the anthem. The A’s catcher took a knee again before Sunday’s game, again with his hand on his heart, again with Canha at his...

    NBC sports reporter Bob Costas assumed the role of political commentator Monday when he praised Colin Kaepernick and called out President Donald Trump on CNN’s “New Day.” “It’s very clear that there’s almost no one in the NFL who wants to support or rationalize the tone and content of President Trump’s remarks,” he said. “I hope others follow Kapernick’s lead. Not in some of the naive political statements he’s occasionally made, but getting involved in the community and actually doing things. Which many NFL players already do, but it’s just not spotlighted.” Costas said he supported the decision by the...

    May our country learn a lesson from this tragic mistake of 2016. We are approaching the year anniversary of Donald Trump’s Electoral College victory over Hillary Clinton. He lost the popular vote by close to three million votes, promptly claimed massive voter fraud and then set up a phony voter fraud commission to vainly prove his point. Since the election we have learned more about widespread Russian interference on behalf of Trump and the GOP, as well as possible collusion with the effort by individuals in the Trump campaign. We will see what comes out of Robert Mueller’s investigation. Many...

    NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at President Trump on Saturday for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying Trump’s “divisive comments” show “an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.” “The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture,” Goodell said in a statement. “There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we've experienced over the last month.” “Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack...

    The NFL would prefer the players’ now-ubiquitous protests take a back seat to the action this season, but it looks like the league won’t get its wish. If anything, the players seem ready to take their social critique beyond sitting during the national anthem. Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, who is among the ranks of NFL players to sit during the anthem, celebrated a sack Sunday afternoon with a single raised fist. Bennett was the first Seattle player announced during pregame introductions before the home opener against the 49ers and ****received one of the loudest ovations.**** (NFL fans are becoming...
