    How did Joe Biden manage to eke out a presidential win after washing up in fourth place in Iowa and fifth in New Hampshire? Co-host Molly Jong-Fast still wants to know. “I’ve spent much of the week talking about being wrong about Cuomo, but I would like to take a minute to talk about being wrong about Biden,” she tells NBC News’ Jonathan Allen, co-author of the new book Lucky: How Biden Barely Won the Presidency, on the latest episode of The New Abnormal. While Molly and others were writing Biden’s political obituary in February 2020, his staffers were suggesting the former vice president refinance his house to put money into his dying campaign, Allen says. “It’s not the most unheard of thing for a candidate to do it,” he says, but “a presidential candidate doesn’t do that. And the subtext of going to him to tell him that is...

Reid's comments have been slammed for apparent hypocrisy after stirring up previous homophobic comments the embattled news host and political commentator has made. 'I'll say it again: people on the right would trade all the tax cuts for the ability to openly say the n-word like in 'the good old days',' Reid tweeted.

    Andrew Cuomo asked a 25-year-old advisor whether she had trouble being intimate with men as a survivor of sexual assault and quizzed her on whether she had sex with older men, according to one of the three women who accused him of sexual assault.  Charlotte Bennett, 25, spoke out on Thursday night in her first televised interview. She said the powerful three-term governor, who was giving daily televised briefings in the midst of the pandemic and was receiving a rapturous reception, 'felt like he was untouchable in a lot of ways' when he 'propositioned' her.  Bennett worked as a health policy adviser in the New York governor's administration, hired in the spring of 2019 and swiftly promoted to senior briefer and executive assistant only a few months later. Bennett had a friendly relationship with Cuomo due to their mutual ties to Westchester County, and saw him as a mentor. Charlotte...
    Daniel Kaluuya in 2020. Samir Hussein/WireImage The 2021 Golden Globes got off to an awkward start after Daniel Kaluuya was muted during his speech. Kaluuya won for best supporting actor in a film, but the first moments of his speech were inaudible. Presenter Laura Dern blamed a "bad connection," but Kaluuya was able to finish accepting his award. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The 78th annual Golden Globes encountered a significant "technical problem" during the first few moments of the show — causing winner Daniel Kaluuya's audio to be muted during his acceptance speech. The British actor, who was "attending" the awards show virtually like many of the evening's nominees, won the night's first award (best supporting actor in a drama film) for his role in "Judas and the Black Messiah." But when Kaluuya attempted to give his acceptance speech, the audio on his video was...

    “I never held him in my arms (the baby), physically I never said goodbye to him. Although I am going to tell you that Martín kept the ashes, he never told me. I think it was before I got pregnant with the babies that he said to me: ‘I have our baby’s ashes, what do we do? “She recalled. Jacky Bracamontes and her daughters (Instagram / Jackybrv) The former beauty queen said that after the news, she made the decision, along with her husband, not to bury her son, but to spread his ashes in the sea, so she organized a ritual to say goodbye to her baby. “I told him ‘I don’t want to bury him, I want him to be near us…’ I love the sea, Martin loves the sea… I told him ‘let’s spread the ashes in the sea’ and that’s what we did.

    In a 2007 appearance on David Letterman, then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., claimed he was arrested at the U.S. Capitol when he was 21 years old. Letterman asked Biden what it was like to walk into the U.S. Senate chamber after being elected at the age of 29. Biden said he had actually walked into the Senate chamber when he was 21 and got arrested. Recounting the details of the arrest – which apparently happened on a Saturday – Biden said had been visiting some friends at Georgetown University, and decided to visit Washington because he "was fascinated with the Senate." "In those days, no guards stopping you everywhere. And they just got out of session. I walked in the back, all of the sudden I found myself in the chamber. I was stunned. I walked up, sat down in the presiding officer’s seat, guy grabbed by...

    The ancestor of the coronavirus could have been lurking in animals for millions of years before it jumped to humans, a virologist has claimed.  The coronavirus, known scientifically as SARS-CoV-2, became able to infect humans when it mutated while inside an animal and then jumped across species. This happened for the first time last year in China and the virus – which turned out to be both fast-spreading and deadly to humans – has since infected at least 110million people and killed 2.4million. Dr Emilia Skirmuntt, an evolutionary virologist at the University of Oxford, is studying viruses that affect bats and said it was likely they carried a version of the virus for a long time. Scientists believe that bats passed the virus to another species which then gave it to humans, but Dr Skirmuntt suggested it could have skipped over the intermediary. What 'species zero' was, she told MailOnline, was...
    By Rodolfo León 0 COMMENTS 02/15/2021 6:15 pm Reggie Fils-Aime was quite a prominent figure within Nintendo for an extended period of time. This executive was present during the launches of the Wii U and the Switch, and fortunately for Reggie, the last console of the Big N was enormously successful, so he was able to quietly retire from the Japanese company. In a new interview with Gamertag Radio, Reggie talked about the success of Switch, and how it was that prepared him for his obvious departure from the company. Since before its launch, Reggie thought that the Switch would be a success, and this helped him to be able to say goodbye to his colleagues calmly: “It was not surprising for me. And I say this because the first time I saw the Nintendo DS, I knew something would work out. The team was testing a prototype...

    To fully understand this story, let’s go back two years. At that time Roland, an 88-year-old Toulouse resident, decided to leave his house in order to be closer to his wife, placed in nursing home. Even if he goes there regularly to maintain it, his “abandoned” house ends up attracting a group of squatters who take possession of the place. We are in September 2020. The neighborhood, who quickly realizes that something is wrong, warns Roland. Too late. According to French law, it is no longer possible to evict squatters who have been living for more than 48 hours in accommodation. The case then goes to court. A month later, the decision fell: the squatters could not be dislodged before the winter break in June. Roland, who wanted to sell his house in order to get closer to his wife, finds himself blocked, prevented from entering his own home,...

    Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal at UFC 251 was the second most successful pay-per-view event for the UFC in 2020. The short notice fight between the ‘BMF’ Jorge Masvidal and Kamaru Usman was only beaten by Conor McGregor at UFC 246.  Although the PPV did extremely well, ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ received a lot of criticism for his showing against Masvidal. Usman grappled extensively and used a lot of foot stomps, which became a meme later on. However, it got the job done, and he was able to retain his title, which is ultimately the most important thing for any champion.  ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – JULY 12: (L-R) Kamaru Usman of Nigeria kicks Jorge Masvidal in their UFC welterweight championship fight during the UFC 251 event at Flash Forum on UFC Fight Island on July 12, 2020 on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

    (CNN)When I heard that residents over 75 would soon be eligible to receive their vaccine in Maricopa County, where my parents live in Arizona, I immediately started investigating how to get them appointments. My mom assured me that they would hear from "someone" to let them know when they could come in, but given the stories of vaccine shortages, I knew this was something that they should not wait for.My dad is 81 and my mom is 74, and they are fairly computer-savvy, but I wanted to make sure they followed the right steps to get an appointment, so I stepped in to help. But navigating the system proved to be a challenge. I can't imagine what seniors without someone to help them figure out the vaccine scheduling process go through; the online systems, hold times for phone calls, waking early to try to get appointments could make anyone frustrated,...

    President-elect Joe Bidens call to vaccinate 100 million people in 100 days against COVID-19 is not only doable but was the "original plan," Operation Warp Speed chief scientific adviser Dr. Moncef Slaoui said Monday.  "Our plan has always been to be able to produce and distribute 200 million doses of vaccine between the middle of December and the end of the month of March, in the first quarter of the year 2021," Slaoui, who has resigned his post but is staying on for another month to assist with the new administrations transition period, said on Fox Business "Mornings With Maria."

    On December 25, 2020 at 9:00 p.m.Updated 25 Dec. 10:14 at 2020 Paid, or almost. The United Kingdom will not succeed in copying all trade agreements concluded by Brussels before leaving the EU on 31 December. But it only has a dozen or more countries to cover up by bilateral agreements, to avoid losing the benefits it has enjoyed until then, thanks to agreements decided by the union. British International Trade Minister Liz Truss, who boasts of being able to trust about 700 negotiators, snatched the “end” a few days ago. An agreement with Singapore ($ 22 billion in annual trade). Providing a European “contract” such as the elimination of customs duties by 2024, it opens up mutual access to the service markets and reduces tariffs on electronics, cars and spare parts, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, as well as renewable energy production. This is an incentive for London to join...

    Roku says its Roku TV line was the top-selling smart TV OS in the US and Canada throughout all of 2020, using NPD data to illustrate the company’s powerful standing. “Roku TV held 38 percent of market share in the US and 31 percent in Canada, based on available data from January 5th through December 26th, 2020, maintaining the lead spot in both regions,” the company said in a press release today. That would signify that Samsung’s Tizen has fallen to second place. (Samsung is still the most popular individual TV maker, however, since Roku TV is divided among brands like TCL, Hisense, and others.) Roku attributes the success of Roku TV to its simple user interface, vast app catalog, and a wide range of TV sizes at appealing prices. TCL has really carved out a reputation as the best choice for picture quality among all the companies making...

    Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) explained the reasoning behind participating in the effort to threaten an Electoral College challenge on January 6 along with a handful of other U.S. Senators and congressmen. Lankford told host Jeanine Pirro it was patterned after the 1876 election, which at the time was facing questions of fraud. “We’ve asked a very simple question: Can we put together an Electoral Commission that have five senators, five House members, five members of the Supreme Court?” he explained. “This is exactly how it was set up in 1876 when there were three states that had all kinds of fraud issues, and so the Election Commission was set up at that time in 1876, just like this, to be able to study it, look at it and make recommendations. We think it’s a good plan.” “Obviously, there are millions and millions of Americans...

    The New York Times does not appear to have covered a story detailing Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell’s contacts with an alleged Chinese spy. Christine Fang, the suspected spy, became close with Swalwell and even participated in his 2014 reelection campaign, according to a Dec. 7 report published by Axios. Fang, who is also accused of having an affair with at least two U.S. mayors, did not donate money and there isn’t evidence of illegal contributions. Fang reportedly planted an intern in Swalwell’s congressional office, according to the report. Swalwell was informed of Fang’s suspected ties in 2015 by the FBI via a “defensive briefing,” cut ties with the alleged spy and has not been implicated in any wrongdoing. The NYT is not the only outlet that has avoided reporting that a suspected Chinese spy was able to get close to multiple politicians. The Washington Post wrote articles about the news as...

    Kristin Fisher and Dana Perino take a break to deliver actual news. Fox News finds itself in the interesting place of trying to perform a 24-hours-a-day paradox. During the day time, they’re pretending to be a normal, fact-driven news network, while during primetime and into the wee hours, they are the fact-free, rhetorically incendiary bigotry factory we have come to expect for the last couple of decades. Why they’re doing this is probably a mixture of reasons. One is that Rupert Murdoch likely does not like Donald Trump and wants to separate his American news interest from Trump and the potential legal fallout that will be coming about in the next few years. Another reason is that with the advent of OANN and other ultra-right-wing fake news spaces, Fox sees the need to distinguish its version of bogus ultra-conservative news vomit from the rest of the pack. Whatever the reason, during Thursday’s...

    Brad Keselowski ended the 2020 season in 2nd place behind eventual champion, Chase Elliott. In other words, he was agonizingly close to adding a second title under his belt. However, the season left a huge impact on everyone on the team. He admitted that being able to get through such a tough year only helps NASCAR’s reputation. Keselowski also couldn’t help joking, “The only thing left was an asteroid strike.” On a more serious note, he was glad that the sport was able to take the COVID-19 situation in stride. With some effective cooperation with local authorities, NASCAR was able to play host to all races. Keselowski continued, “To be here today and have a great race for a championship, I think that’s really impressive. And NASCAR maybe doesn’t get enough credit for being able to pull all that off, considering the landscape.” Brad Keselowski acknowledged NASCAR’s efforts this season...

The White House’s science policy office was criticized for listing "ending the COVID-19 pandemic" as one of President Trump's accomplishments in a press release, which Farah said was "poorly worded." "Cases are still rising and we need the American public to remain vigilant," she said. "This is the top priority of the president, defeating this virus and rebuilding our economy.

    Democrat Joe Biden said he hoped it was more about the campaign he ran than the country overall if he loses the November presidential election to President Donald Trump.  'Well, could say I'm a lousy candidate and I didn't do a job,' Biden said when asked how he would interpret a loss. 'But I think, I hope, that it doesn't say that we are racially, ethnically and religiously at odds with one another as it appears the president wants us to be.'    Biden said he'd go back to being a college professor, though told a voter at his Philadelphia ABC News town hall that he wouldn't likely be able to have much influence on a Trump second term.  Democratic nominee Joe Biden said that if he loses to President Donald Trump it might indicate that he was a 'lousy candidate'  Joe Biden (left) participating in a town hall...

    By Margaryta Chornokondratenko and Sergiy Karazy KYIV, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Belarusian electro-folk singer Rusia Shukiurava fled Minsk in early September but every sight of a police officer or sound of a car with a siren still makes "everything squeeze" inside her. Shukiurava left for Ukraine's capital Kyiv with her 1.5-year-old daughter and mother in the aftermath of Belarus' disputed Aug. 9 presidential election, saying fear for her safety paralysed her in both her personal and professional life. The 40-year-old had been working as a voice trainer for opposition politicians, including Viktor Babariko, a key figure who was later arrested, and worried her professional activity would make her a target for persecution by the authorities. The Freedom Belarus movement, which unites anti-government Belarusian artists, also used one of Shukiurava's songs for a music video featuring women wearing white throwing truncheons, arms and protective equipment into a grave.

    Joe Biden has landed in hot water over a viral clip of him suggesting why people were able to quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic. "They're saying, 'Jeez, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf,'" Biden is heard saying in the clip. The 10-second clip, which was originally shared on Sept. 29, was just a snippet of comments the Democratic nominee made during a Sept. 15 roundtable with veterans in Tampa, Fla. In the expanded remarks, Biden had expressed a positive tone in dealing with the problems the country faces, particularly the ones that stem from the coronavirus outbreak.

    Donald Trump’s staff planned to move him to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center out of an abundance of caution after the president contracted the novel coronavirus. But insiders say that the decision was made after his condition continued to deteriorate to transport him sooner rather than later while he could still walk on his own in front of the television cameras. As The Washington Post reported, Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Thursday evening, shortly after news leaked that his counselor Hope Hicks was also infected. Early the next morning, Trump announced his and the first lady’s positive tests and said that they would begin self-quarantining inside the East Wing. While initial reports suggested that he was either asymptomatic or only experiencing mild symptoms, but by the afternoon, insiders say that Trump’s condition worsened. The anonymous officials said that he had a fever, cough, nasal congestion. Other official reports...

    BDT Stage has been around since 1977— pretty much the heyday of the dinner theater movement in the United States.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who helped President Donald Trump prepare to debate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, said the president was too “hot” in his first performance but that it was a problem that could be “fixed,” in contrast to what he said was a “shaky” performance by his opponent. “First off, Rahm said earlier that it was the vice president’s job tonight to reassure,” Christie said, referring to fellow ABC News contributor and Rahm Emanuel. “I don’t think that’s a reassuring performance by the vice president tonight. He looked very shaky at many, many times in this debate. His numbers were way off. He would wander off in mid-sentence. And he used lots of name-calling and insulting language. That’s not rising above it.” However, Christie said, “On the Trump side, I think that was too hot. You come in and decide you want to be aggressive — and I think that...
    Aaron Rodgers at the line. Sean Gardner/Getty Images Aaron Rodgers fooled the New Orleans Saints with a hard count late in fourth quarter to help the Packers seal their victory on Sunday night.
