Kirk Humphreys quietly resigns from KFOR’s Flashpoint…

On Sunday morning, while you were hopefully sleeping, failed politician turned political pundit Kirk Humphreys quietly announced he is stepping away from KFOR’s Flashpoint – the weekly lo-fi political round table talk show that he’s co-pundited with Mike Turpen since 2008.

Here are the details KFOR:

A big announcement was made on Flash Point on Sunday.

Kirk Humphreys announced he would be leaving Flash Point.

“It’s the right time for me and my family to step away from Flash Point,” said Humphreys. “It’s been a great season here.”

Humphreys decision to step down comes not too long after he resigned from the OU Board of Regents after he shared dated, out-of-touch views on homosexuality – views that would have gone unquestioned if it were not for a well to do State Rep out of Norman:

Kirk Humphreys, co-host of KFOR’s weekly talk show “Flashpoint,” said during a discussion about recent sexual assault allegations in the political sphere that “if (homosexuality) is OK, then it’s OK for everybody and quite frankly it’s OK for men to sleep with little boys if it’s OK.”

Oklahoma state representative Emily Virgin (D-Norman), a guest on the show, said she does not think homosexuality is wrong, to which Humphreys replied, “Well I do.”

In addition to that, one of Humphreys’ main business interests – The Carlton Landing development at Lake Eufaula – has been floating up shit creek ever since it was caught dumping its sewage lagoons directly into Lake Eufaula. The DEQ has even opened criminal inquires. You can read all about it at The Frontier.

Humphreys’ announcement has been sweet news to his critics, detractors, and parents of kids at John Rex. In addition to gays, he’s also shared his backwards views on women and minority groups. Who could forget the sage wisdom he shared about men being leaders and women being followers?

With Humphreys out, you have to wonder who KFOR will tab to replace him. When you consider his past statements, along with the fact that Flashpoint still has two old white male conservative voices in Mike “DINOmite” Turpen and Kevin “Franken” Ogle, you’d think it would probably be a good time to bring some diversity to the set. Maybe a women or person of color or someone who’s not a member of the Oklahoma Ruling Class.

Former Lt. Governor Todd Lamb will be taking Humphreys’ spot and says he’s excited about the opportunity.

“I’m just honored to participate and be a host on Flash Point,” said Lamb.

Humphreys told moderator Kevin Ogle and Mike Turpen he believes Lamb was a great pick for his seat on the show.

“He stands up for what he believes,” said Humphreys.

Really??? Todd Lamb?! That’s hysterical. The guy couldn’t beat Kevin Stitt in a debate, and now he gets a TV platform to espouse his “Conservative Position.” Say what you want about Oklahoma, but we’re great at rewarding failure.

Seriously, what a joke. Out of all the people they could hire, they went with Mary’s Little Lamb? He’s nothing but a mouthpiece for Harold Hamm’s penis. Then again, Mike Turpen is nothing but a mouthpiece for Scott Pruitt’s penis, so maybe it will lead to some lively debate.

  1. Get ready to hear from the assholes in Enid, ya know, Hamm’s attorneys:)

  2. Glad Todd will be working again. We know how hard it is for a wealthy, connected white guy to get a job in this state. I wish him well but miss Burns Harris in that seat.

    1. Burns Hargis was the best thing about that show back in the day. It’s never been the same since he left.

  3. The Humphrey’s family’s Carlton Landing sewage issues are completely disturbing to anyone with a brain bigger than a pea. They just don’t want to spend any of their afro-sheen money.

  4. Patrick,

    Don’t take a pro-homosexuality advocate standing, then make comments like this:

    “(Lamb)’s nothing but a mouthpiece for Harold Hamm’s penis. Then again, Mike Turpen is nothing but a mouthpiece for Scott Pruitt’s penis, so maybe it will lead to some lively debate.”

    Humphries made it clear he thinks homosexuality is immoral. That’s his opinion and he’s on a talk show. Why then, allude to Lamb, his replacement, as a cocksucker? And don’t act like calling someone a mouthpiece for another man’s penis isn’t anything but.

    You can’t have your self-righteousness and jokes too. Political correctness destroys comedy. Either take a serious tone, or a comedic tone. Otherwise, you come off as a prick.


    1. I’ll continue to do what I do, Fairy.

      1. Brave. For that, I commend you.

        1. Are you new here?

    2. Kirk?! Is that you?!

  5. They need to close shop on that show!! I cannot stand loud mouth Turpen. He’s overbearing, interrupts People. When he’s not interrupting.. he’s wiggling in his seat like a 2 year old wanting attention!! I don’t see how Ogle can stand being there!!

    1. +1

  6. Turpen’s a joke. When former Labor Commish Mark Costello was on the show Costello said “Obama has more in common with Pol Pot than the people of Poteau.” (This was before Trump elevated the tenor of our public discourse.) Turpen just sat there with a shit eating grin.

  7. I’ll still call it “Between Two Assholes with Kevin Ogle”

    1. Spit Miller Lite all over my keyboard. First cleaning it has had in sometime.

  8. That show IS a joke! They should totally revamp it and put people on there like Cal Hobson and Garvin Isaacs and David Walters. People with real brains.

    1. Blondie, I bet Garvin Isaacs is highly offended for including him with these two!

      1. Nah Mike. Garvin is a lawyer. He’ll take free advertising anywhere, anytime, anyhow and with anyone.

        And BTW. DW was a governor and I survived 13 elections and against all odds as a progressive liberal in Oklahoma, became pro temp of the state senate.

        What have you done ‘out west’ recently or actually anytime?

  9. Does anybody still watch that shit?? Thought the NFL pre-game killed it years ago.

  10. Out with one rich, white man, in with another. Gotta love diversity.

  11. Flashpoint is pretty meaningless unless they throw out the whole panel — new host and everything. It is what it is: A buncha white men. Guess it’s too much to ask to have a panel with a woman, or a black person, or a Latino, or a Native American, you know, people who actually look like a lot of OKC’s population, especially its young urban core. Also good luck finding anybody that would consider it appointment viewing for a 9 a.m. on Sunday or whenever it airs (I’m usually asleep).

  12. There must not be a KFOR here in Tulsa.
    Missing out on OKC’s finest, I’m sure! Ha

  13. I think I’ve said it here before, but I always have thought that Turpin was a Republican plant. His buffoonish mugging and tired, slapshot discourse is just embarrassing. The kind of guy that has to laugh the loudest and then see who noticed him.
    And, for the record, I’m not gay, but why is “cocksucker” such an insult? Doesn’t just about every guy like that to happen to him? Does he think his wife or partner who does that for him is the lesser human for it? Does he think he or she is degrading themselves when they are giving him pleasure in that manner?
    Just wondering,…

  14. CRAZY LARRY HERE – I hope we can expect weekly repeats of Lamb’s concessions speech where the reality hadn’t hit him all the way that he lost and he just mumbled idiotic statements for a few minutes. Pure gold! Get me that KFOR Producer on the line now! I know who my 2020 campaign manager will be!

  15. Humphreys was supposed to win the 2004 U.S. Senate Republican Primary. He got 25% of the vote. Todd Lamb was also the “favorite” for the recent Republican Gubernatorial race, garnering only 24% of the vote.

    Yeah, replacing Humphreys with Todd Lamb makes total sense. Wonder who will replace him when he decides he is the favorite to run in the Republican primary to run against that uppity Democratic Woman who had the audacity to beat the favored Steve Russell.

    Oklahoma politics are so grand!

  16. So a show that nobody watches hired a guy that hardly anyone voted for? And you are surprised how? I wonder if Dan Fischer feels snubbed? Somebody should run down to the Planned Parenthood he is protesting this week and get the inside scoop..

    1. Dan Fischer is the strongest argument FOR abortion that I know. (Besides Trump, Pence, Inhoff, Fallin, Nixon, Lankford, Shortey, etc., etc.)

      1. Yes, yes he is. However, even being a registered democrat I have grown to like/accept Lankford. At least he works across the aisle, stands by his values and has come out against Commander Marmalade a few times. The rest of them however.. short rope and a tall tree should be the order of the day.

  17. They might as well just powder each other’s bum bum and have Mike Morgan come spank them until is weather tie is properly erect.

    Would be a better and more relevant discussion medium than they have now with the D.I.N.O Turpen derpin weekly.

  18. I’ve never heard Mike Turpen called a conservative. Old maybe but never conservative. I like the show because they had the people on, who were running for office and you learned a little about where they stand on issues. Sure the show isn’t politically correct but that’s what I want to hear, what they really think. Not a watered down version of political correctness. TLO is the same way, only on the opposite side of the scale. I mean really, what kind of a low life would even joke/ accuse another man of that? When you have no talent or anything of value to say, accuse a man of oral sex on another man, eh Patrick.

    1. Victims….. aren’t we all?

  19. Emily Virgin is well-to-do??

  20. Turpen is a Democrat. Maybe a rich Democrat, or a Biden Democrat, or a Chamber of Commerce Democrat. I think he had a lot to do with President Obama coming to Cushing a few years ago.

  21. But muh diversity!!!!!!!

  22. Kirk was a asshole and met his match with a even bigger self-centered asshole Emily Virgin.

  23. Mike Turpen could only be considered conservative if he were stuck in an elevator with AOC and Colonol Bernie Sanders.

    The show is a joke and only relevance at all comes during election cycles. KFOR should euthanize it in favor of a Sunday morning call in show about OU and OSU football, bass fishing or noodling…

    1. Liking a bible beater that hates the poor and doesn’t support women, that’s really glass half full.

    2. euthanize it in favor of a Sunday morning call in show about OU and OSU football, bass fishing or noodling…

      Hope you’re not serious, if so you have a sad life
