Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— A fight in a hot tub in South Carolina came about over the weekend when three gay men fought over who was the highest paid escort. Austin Adams, 18, allegedly assaulted Douglas Tench, 21, when the two argued over who received more pay for their escort services. The pair along with 33-year-old Michael Gordon were at a bar before going back to a house Gordon was dog-sitting at where the fight happened.

“I think it’s exactly the place [South Carolina] where there are a lot of closeted guys, military guys, or officials who don’t want to get in trouble,” said Minihane.

“Gamecock fans,” Dennis joked.

Added Callahan: “33? What’s he doing in that group?”

“Male cougar,” Minihane replied.

— Alois Brunner, a reputed top lieutenant of Nazi mastermind Adolf Eichmann reportedly died four years ago in Syria where he was living under government protection. Brunner, an Austrian SS officer who was found responsible for the World War II deportation of 125,500 European Jews to Nazi death camps, escaped at the war’s end from Germany to Egypt and the escaped to Syria in 1954.

“This is in Syria though, right? That is sort of like being in hell,” Dennis said.

“There is a hell. I believe in hell because of guys like that. There has to be,” Callahan replied.

— Bill Cosby has resigned from Temple’s Board of Trustees. He held the position for 32 years, and it comes to an end after the sexual allegations that have come out against Cosby over the past several weeks.

“Is he admitting guilt here?” Callahan asked.

“Well he jumped before he was pushed,” said Dennis.

“None of the other trustees would wet their hair before meetings, he hated that,” added Callahan.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’€™€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— Foxwoods has cancelled a future Bill Cosby show in wake of the sexual assault allegations against him, but there are shows still scheduled to go on in Boston and Worcester in February.

“If I already had my tickets, and I don’t care if I paid $200 for them, I wouldn’t go see this pig,” Dennis said.

“Doesn’t he have a right to perform, though?” Callahan asked.

“Yeah, he does, and I have a right not to go watch him,” Dennis replied.

“Exactly. Shouldn’t the marketplace determine who goes to see him,” Callahan responded.

— On a Fox News live broadcast from Ferguson, Missouri, shots were fired while Steve Harrigan was reporting on Monday night, following the ruling of there being no indictment for Ferguson officer Darren Wilson. Harrigan kept yelling at his crew to move back.

“So the commissioner, or the chief said no shots were fired by his guys, not one. Who is shooting, and what are they shooting at?” Callahan asked.

“They are just shooting into the air. It’s a Palestinian thing. Haven’t you seen that in Palestine,” Dennis replied.

There were a number of buildings set on fire in the town following the ruling, some still burning into the morning.

“I guarantee you there would not have been 25 fires lighted during the daylight hours,” said Dennis. “They are much more effective at night, right? That’s like bon-fires at pep rallies.”

“You’d never light a fire at 9 a.m.,” Callahan replied.

— Jennifer Gable, 32, a transgender women of Twin Halls, Idaho, died unexpectedly last week. Friends of Gable were horrified to see her dressed as a man with short hair and a suit at the open-casket funeral. Jennifer was born a boy named Geoffrey.

The online obituary made no mention of Jennifer, and the photo that was used appears to be of Geoffrey when he was a teenager.

“Do you blame the parents?” Callahan asked. “It must be a tough time anyway.”

“It’s not their choice,” Dennis replied.

“Yes, I do,” countered Minihane. “It’s someone who chose to live her life that way.”

Here are the highlights from Thursday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— Another person has come forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault, as Tamara Green, 66, is the fifth person to now come forward accusing Cosby of sexual assault.

“I didn’t know how far he was going to take it, he had drugged me, I thought he could do anything, I thought he could kill me,” Green told Mail Online.

“Is there a question that the two of you have that you could share to me about this whole situation, when is the legal system going to drop the hammer on this pervert? Is it the statutes of limitations?” Dennis asked.

“They are reluctant to press charges,” Callahan replied. “They were reluctant 10 or 15 years ago. … You think the people 10 or 15 years ago are going to step forward and say, ‘arrest that man?'”

— The hosts continued yesterday’s discussion of CNN host Don Lemon’s interview with another one of the Bill Cosby sexual assault accusers, Joan Tarshis, who said she was forced to perform oral sex on Cosby. Lemon said there could’€™ve been a way for her to not perform the act, using her teeth as a ‘€œweapon.’€

“Why didn’t she respond and say, ‘you stupid fool, he would have beaten me … and then drugged me and killed me,'” Callahan said.

— On Nov. 6, Cosby gave a video interview with the Associated Press and was asked about the accusations. Cosby never really responded and then following the interview asked the reporter to “scuttle” the segment about the rape allegations, as he believed the interview had ended. The AP has released the video.

“What a manipulative piece of garbage,” Dennis said.

“He’s just a monster,” Callahan replied.

Michael Phelps‘ girlfriend Taylor Lianne Chandler revealed she was born a boy and was named David Roy Fitch. She was born with both sets of reproductive organs and she identified as a boy until her teenage years.

Phelps is currently in currently in rehab, as well as serving a six-month suspension from USA Swimming after his second DUI in late September. She said she told Phelps via email and he’s yet to respond.

“Well, I’d rather be Phelps than Cosby today, I’ll say that,” Dennis said.
