MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross Boasts About Atlanta’s Political Secret: We’re #5 in Strip Golf equipment!
Nothing speaks for the healthy, vibrant culture of a city like a large “adult entertainment industry” and the proliferation of strip clubs!
At least when you hear Tiffany Cross. . .
On her MSNBC show this morning, Cross devoted a segment to a political ad currently running in Georgia called “Get Your Booty to the Poll”. It shows strippers dancing around a “pole” asking black voters to “vote” in the runoff elections in the Senate.
Cross had the creator of the ad as a guest. Cross bragged that the “adult entertainment industry” makes more money in Atlanta than any of the city’s sports teams. And she bragged about Atlanta:
“Ranked fifth in the country for the highest number of strip clubs per 100,000 people.”
We are # 5!
And is that a good thing?
Cross and the ad creator said the purpose of the ad was to reach out to black men who love to go to strip clubs: “to meet them where they are.”
And the ad itself made its appeal to black voters clear. After one speaker asked people to go to their website to see where the candidates stand on issues that affect “us”, another speaker said: “and by ‘us’ we mean black people.”
At the beginning of the show, Cross had former Georgia Republican Congressman Jack Kingston. When Kingston urged people to respect others with different political views, including those from “transfer states,” Cross said:
“I can’t remember a similar disrespect for people in transfer states.”
Cross can’t remember liberals expressing disrespect for people from the overflight country? “Really?”
Obama’s “bitter brackets”. Hillarys “deplorable”. Hi there?

Note: While Cross is unable to recall any “bitter brackets” or “unfortunate” ones, we give her the honor of hosting Kingston. He’s not your typical Trump-hating “MSNBC Republican” who actually shows respect for President Trump’s right to question the election results.
Tiffany Cross, which boasts a large number of strip clubs in Atlanta, was sponsored in part by Visionworks, Liberty Mutual, and DirecTV.
Here is the transcript.
The cross connection
TIFFANY CROSS: Next, we’re going to answer that age-old question: will enough Georgians get their boots to vote?
. . .
FIRST SPEAKER: Black life is important to us. Would you like to know if black lives are important to the candidates? Go to GetYourBootytothePoll.com to see where they stand Problems that affect us.
SECOND SPEAKER: And By “us” we mean black people.
DIFFERENT DANCERS: [twirling around stripper pole] Get, get, bring your loot to choose from. Make your prey a choice. Make your prey a choice, yes. Vote, vote, vote.
VOICEOVER: The Georgia Senate runoff is January 5th. Let’s finish what we started: take your loot to the survey!
CROSS: The strip club dancers, whose viral video helped boost the turnout in the general election, are back for the Georgia Senate runoff. Georgia may be known for its booming adult entertainment scene, but Peach State also has a nearly $ 10 billion worth of film and television industry, making Georgia the new Hollywood of the south. And the creative community shows its political power.
Angela Barnes, writer and director of Get Your Booty to the Polls, is with me now.
. . .
I want to start in the entertainment industry in Atlanta. because I think a lot of people may not know this, but the entertainment industry in Atlanta, According to Georgia Tech, the adult entertainment industry in Atlanta has annual sales of $ 240 million, which is a bigger economic impact than any sports team in Atlanta.
And the city ranks fifth in the country for the highest number of strip clubs per 100,000 residents.
So the Booty to the Polls video really hits people where they are.
