1. During halftime of last night’s game, Bob Costas took a minute to address the Jovan Belcher situation, and gun control.
2. Many on Twitter were furious with Costas…
4. But I for one was impressed by his candor, and his timing. Too often we accuse people of “politicizing a tragedy,” when in fact what they’re doing is exploring how that tragedy could have been avoided at the time when those questions are best asked.
5. Gun control is a complicated issue, but if this isn’t a time to address it, I don’t know what is. So to Costas and Jason Whitlock:
- President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump had their first dance to Frank Sinatra's "My Way" at an inaugural ball 🇺🇸
- On his first day in office President Trump signed an executive order to "minimize the economic burden" of the Affordable Care Act.
- Over 200 people were arrested as anti-Trump protesters and police clashed in Washington, DC, during the inauguration.
- Flights around the country are packed with pink as people stream into the nation's capital for the Women's March on Washington 👭 💖
