Bruce Springsteen Cover Band Drops Out Of Donald Trump's Inauguration Performance — We Guess 'Boss' Trumps Commander-In-Chief!

no title

Back to the drawing board!

Donald Trump has been having an unprecedented amount of trouble booking musical acts for his upcoming inauguration.

Weeks ago, the President-elect scored a semi-legit name to play at his inaugural ball when he signed a Bruce Springsteen… cover band.

But now, it looks like even the B Street Band is bowing out of the ceremony!

After getting heat for their booking at the Garden State Inaugural Gala, the famous Springsteen cover band is dropping out of Trump's swear-in festivity.

The group made the decision not from receiving public backlash, but as to not disrespect the Boss himself — as the Born in the U.S.A. singer has made his thoughts clear on the incoming POTUS.

Founder Will Forte (not that one) contacted Backstreets to confirm the group was dropping out of the gala, saying in a statement:

8-Year-Old Boy Kicked Out Of Cub Scouts Because He's Transgender!

no title

One step forward, two steps back.

As you may be aware, it's been over three years since the Boy Scouts of America finally started allowing openly gay children in their group — and about a year and a half since they extended that invitation to adult Den Leaders as well.

Unfortunately, it still looks like we're years away from getting true equality in the controversial organization… because an 8-year-old boy was just kicked out of Cub Scouts for being transgender!

Joe Maldonado first joined Pack 87 in Secaucus, New Jersey back in October, but was almost immediately asked to leave due to his gender identity just a month later in November.

According to momma Kristie Maldonado, though, it wasn't other kids who were concerned with his appearance — Joe has been living as a boy for over a year now — it was their parents.

But to make things even worse, Scouts spokesperson Effie Delimarkos actually defended their decision to discriminate against the child in a statement, saying:

Hundreds Injured, At Least 1 Dead As New Jersey Train Crashes Into Hoboken Station At High Speed

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadInjuryScary!Travel

no title

A train accident at Hoboken Station early Thursday morning has left hundreds injured, and details only seem to be getting worse.

According to eyewitness and first responder reports, the New Jersey commuter train ran full speed into the Hoboken terminal and off the tracks at around 8:38 a.m. EST after failing to brake, seriously injuring the engineer as well as passengers.

Unfortunately, the crash caused the station's roof to collapse, potentially injuring other commuters as well.

It's currently unclear whether this was an operator or system error, but officials do not believe this was a deliberate attack of any kind.

While initial reports suggested a "mass casualty response" from EMS, only one fatality has been confirmed as of yet.

How are these people even getting hired in the first place?!

It's no secret America currently has a problem with law enforcement being too trigger-happy, and the latest incident of Police Brutality does not help the matter.

That's because officers in New Jersey just shot a 76-year-old man THREE TIMES after responding to a 911 call… at the wrong house!

Two officers in Cumberland County, N.J., thought they were protecting and/or serving their community when they approached Gerald Sykes' home on Friday night after an emergency caller failed to leave an address.

Naturally, the innocent man immediately assumed the two men nearing his house's rear entrance were burglars… so he grabbed his shotgun and

Nick Jonas & Demi Lovato's Concert Venue Evacuated Because Of A Suspicious Package!

Filed under: Music MinuteDemi LovatoNick JonasScary!

So scary.

There was a bit of a scary situation at Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato's concert on Tuesday.

Just hours before the dynamic duo was slated to perform at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, police evacuated the stadium after discovering a suspicious package outside.

At around 3 p.m., cops cleared the staffers from the arena once they found the item along one of the Center's outer walls.

However, the package turned out to be just a harmless microwave. Sources say the police are being super cautious following the sniper attack that killed five officers in Dallas last week.

We don't know if Nick or Demi were in the building during the evacuation.

No One Wants To Speak At Donald Trump's Convention!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpHIGHlariousFunny

no title

Just like the weird kid in high school, no one wants to go to Donald Trump's party!

In the past couple of days, things aren't going so well for the businessman! As we reported, thousands of wealthy Republican campaign donors are withholding their money from the controversial candidate!

In addition to his lack of funding, it seems like no Republican politicians are willing to speak or even attend the Republican National Convention less than a month away!

Related: Mini Donald Trump Is Back!

On Monday, POLITICO reached out to several prominent GOP governors, senators, and representatives about whether they were attending the convention in Cleveland. And judging from their data, people are avoiding Trump like a bad fart!

Some of the people who are flat out not attending include South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo, New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte, and several others!

This news is surprising given the fact that the RNC is a place where up-and-coming politicians become breakout stars. However, folks simply don't want to be associated with the Donald.

But don't feel too bad for the former reality TV star! Supporters such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will most likely get on stage.

Sucks to suck!

Bread Truck Crashes Into Truck Carrying Deli Meat… Sandwiches, Anyone??

no title

This is the best thing since sliced bread!

While these sorts of stories normally end in tragedy, we're happy to say this particular accident has quite the slapstick spin.

Two trucks collided on a busy New Jersey highway Friday morning in the middle of rush hour commute, but it's what they were carrying when they crashed that's making news around the world.

The trucks, which ran into each other on Interstate 287 near Piscataway, New Jersey at about 6:00 a.m. local time, spilled out all their contents on the highway, causing backups for miles.

And as random as it seems, one truck was carrying bread, while the other spilled out all of its deli meats.

Seriously… A bread truck just ran into a deli meat truck!
