*President Donald Trump took to Twitter Tuesday to fire top U.S. election security official Chris Krebs amid his agency contradicting GOP disinformation about voter fraud.
Krebs’ termination was sparked by a statement that declared 2020 the most secure election in history.
“The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result,” the statement said, adding, “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
If you wanna know why officials are hesitant to recognize obvious truths like Joe Biden won the election and Donald Trump didn’t, Chris Krebs is a prime example of how, in this White House, you can be fired for contradicting the president, even if he is wrong.

Krebs, director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) within the Department of Homeland Security, retweeted an election law expert who called out Trump for spreading misinformation.
“Please don’t retweet wild and baseless claims about voting machines, even if they’re made by the president. These fantasies have been debunked many times,” wrote David Becker, executive director of the Center for Election Innovation & Research.
“The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that there were massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, “glitches” in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more,” Trump tweeted. “Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.”
Krebs hinted last week that he expected to be curbed by Trump. Soon after he was fired, he tweeted, “Honored to serve. We did it right. Defend Today, Secure Tomrorow.”

following the biggest PPV fight event of the year.
FITE has an important weekend coming up as the exclusive digital carrier of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones, Jr. pay per view fight presented by Triller on Saturday, November 28th, so launching this new series featuring Tyson and Jones as co-stars in the series made a lot of sense.

Tyson-Jones tie-in, we felt it was meant to be.”

Breakfast Club’s Angela Yee Expands from Radio to Television
*Angela Yee, co-host of the ultra-popular national radio syndicated program “The Breakfast Club” can now also be seen on television.
Yee is host of her new television show, “Established with Angela Yee.” The celebrity-interview driven program, which streams on Fox Soul, can be viewed on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m.
“I came up with the title ‘Established with Angela Yee’ because I really want to celebrate people’s wins and not make it about ‘gotcha’ interviews,” Yee told the NY Post. “I want the interviews to be more about milestones and pivotal career moments.”
Yee’s first guest was Method Man, who she once worked with when she was an intern for Wu-Tang Clan.
“I would describe my interviewing style as very conversational – it feels like you’re just kicking it,” Yee explains. “I always have certain questions in my head and I always make sure I ask.”
Yee has a “wish list” of celebrities she would like to interview. Lil Kim and Miss Elliot are at the top of the list.
In addition to her new television program, Yee owns Juice for Life, a juice bar in Brooklyn. She also continues to co-host The Breakfast Club on Power 101.5 FM, with DJ Envy and Charlamagne tha God. As far as her future on The Breakfast Club, especially when her contract is up for renewal next year, Yee won’t reveal her plans.
“The guys have all signed up and are ready to go so they’ll be there,” Yee says. “It’s always ‘it is what it is’ during contract negotiation time. I feel like sometimes I take on a lot, but I put. 100 percent in everything that I do. I’m at the point of my life where I can do what I want. I’m just a fan of seizing the moment.”
