Naked in the airport, Jerry Lawler Loves Donald Trump

Nashville Now!

What happens in Nashvegas doesn't always stay in Nashvegas. California resident Tod Brilliant told WSMV-TV he was "pretty impressed" by the people he encountered while visiting Music City. He was referring to how calmly people working in the Nashville airport went about their business while a very large, extremely naked man wandered about the premises. The Nashville nudist's blurry bare bottom became internet-famous overnight, prompting hundreds of international news reports. According to WSMV, Brilliant walked right up to the naked man and said, "You're amazing," to which the naked man replied "Thanks." Then, according to Brilliant, "they came for him."

Lawler Trumped

Who needs wrestling when there's social media? Earlier this month, Memphis wrestling legend Jerry "The King" Lawler learned that there are no "faces" on Twitter, only heels, when he tweeted his support for Donald Trump. What followed was a flurry of tweets wherein Lawler was described as everything from a "fat scumbag" to a "slimy sexist scumbag" and just about every other kind of scumbag you can imagine. Other commenters just wished he'd die, resulting in the kind of high-drama media heat wrestlers usually thrive on. But instead of pulling down his shoulder strap, throwing fire, or calling his critics a bunch of toothless hillbillies, Lawler told WMC's Kontji Anthony the tweet was probably ill-advised, and he'd be staying out of politics. Sadly, this probably means Trump isn't considering the King as a potential running mate.

Speaking of Jerry Lawler, Donald Trump
