  • Trump gets a national anthem moment at football title game

Stephanie Druley, ESPN senior vice president for events and studio programs, said the network had been in contact with the White House and she did not "get the sense" that an interview would be arranged.

But then President Donald Trump chose to make an appearance on Monday, presumably playing to his base in the Deep South states of Alabama and Georgia.

President Donald Trump is in Atlanta on Monday to attend the College Football Playoff title game between Alabama and Georgia - two states that went to Trump in the 2016 election.

Trump's anthem fail set off a Twitterstorm of seething sarcasm.

The remarks came at an appearance at the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual meeting in Nashville, which he attended with U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. When he arrived nearly an hour later - presumably passing a small group of protesters outside CNN headquarters - there were resounding boos.

While the NAACP said that they would not be part of the planned protest, the civil right organization did encourage people at the game to wear white.

Male infertility among many side effects linked to ibuprofen
Compensated hypogonadism is typically found in older men, and it is linked with impaired fertility, according to the study. Ibuprofen lowered testosterone production in the tissues, but levels of the hormone remained the same in the men.


The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome".

As the president watched college football live in Georgia anti-Trump protesters let him know how they truly felt about him and his politics.

Jackson says the big game's real meaning is that blacks can win on the playing field, but still face racial barriers after they take off their uniforms.

The different groups are also planning a tweetstorm during Trump's visit to Atlanta for the football game.
