Happy New Year everyone and welcome to the first Rant of 2019. We’ve missed some things since we’ve been gone and I’m back to recap the latest headlines we’ve missed and are about to see.
In my opinion, the 2 best tennis players ever, Roger Federer & Serena Williams played each other and Roger won when they had to play each other in a landmark mixed doubles match.
Tyler Trent, the Purdue student who sparked hope amid tears from a nation that followed his journey with terminal cancer, has died. He was 20 years old. RIP🙏
Tonight, Lifetime will air the first episodes of the six-part docuseries ‘Surviving R. Kelley’. The new documentary ‘Surviving R. Kelly’ on the singer’s alleged history of abuse includes more than 50 interviews and appearances by John Legend and Wendy Williams. This R. Kelly Documentary airing the same month as Aaliyah’s birthday, it rubs me the wrong way, but now I don’t think it was just a coincidence. Just recently a former back up dancer to R. Kelley said she saw the singer have sex with a 15-year-old Aaliyah.
Mean Gene Okerlund
Legendary wrestler announcer and interviewer passed away yesterday at the age of 76. He was a staple for my love of wrestling as a child especially doing interviews with Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. He was the greatest interviewer in the history of the wrestling business.

New York Times
Jill Abramson says the NY Times, which she once ran, has become “unmistakably anti-Trump” in its news coverage, some of it infused with “pure opinion”. This should be amazing and give trump legitimacy coming from her new book.
Former Senate Majority leader Harry Reid calls President Trump “without question” the worst President ever. “We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him.” This coming from a piece of shit who has turned over backward for lobbyists and bureaucrats left and right.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi just earned enough votes to reclaim her position as House speaker, becoming the first woman to hold the position twice for the 116th Congress, meaning now former speaker Paul Ryan is gone. Ryan leaves Congress with a 12% approval rating.
