In his first one-on-one interview since the general election, President Trump told Fox News' Maria Bartiromo over the phone that he is "ashamed" he once endorsed Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R).Trump, who throughout the interview repeated allegations of widespread voter fraud without evidence or much pushback from Bartiromo, complained about Georgia's electoral process in particular. The president became the first Republican presidential candidate to lose the state since 1992. He has already sought a mostly ineffective recount, but he's still fuming over his defeat, and he's taken out his on state officials, especially Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. But he let Kemp have it Sunday.Trump said Kemp has "done absolutely nothing" to assist his efforts to flip the results and admitted "I'm ashamed that I endorsed him."> "I'm ashamed that I endorsed him" -- Trump disses Brian Kemp for not doing more to help him steal the election in Georgia pic.twitter.com/pCgF7dFIk2> > -- Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) November 29, 2020As several observers pointed out, Kemp has traditionally been a solid supporter of the president, highlighting how quickly Trump's relationships can turn. > Kemp has been one of the president's strongest supporters from the governor's mansion, backing Trump's leadership+handling of the virus, for example. > > Now, Kemp and SoS Raffensperger are getting thrown under the bus because Trump lost GA (but other Republicans did well!) https://t.co/SwB6ff5tpr> > -- stephen fowler covers Georgia's election!

“No,” Jill Biden, then clad in a bikini, wrote in Sharpie across her stomach and then marched through a strategy session in which advisers were trying to talk her husband into challenging Republican President George W. Bush. Protecting Joe stands out among Jill Biden's many roles over their 43-year marriage, as her husband's career moved him from the Senate to the presidential campaign trail and the White House as President Barack Obama's vice president. Now, with her husband on the brink of becoming the 46th president, Jill Biden is about to become first lady and put her own stamp on a position that traditionally is viewed as a model of American womanhood — whether that means hewing to old ways or finding new, activist ones, in the manner of Eleanor Roosevelt, Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama, for example.

Treasures buried on a Cornish shipwreck for more than three centuries have finally been retrieved after divers had to wait three years for a good enough weather forecast. Three gigantic 16th-century merchants’ weights have been recovered from the final resting-place of the Schiedam, a 17th-century Dutch merchantman captured by Barbary pirates, seized by the English and requisitioned by the Royal Navy - only to be wrecked in 1684. So treacherous are the waters and storms off the west coast of the Lizard Peninsula that the Schiedam was among countless vessels from the age of sail that met their end there. The 400-ton vessel was run ashore by a gale in April 1684 near Gunwalloe off the west coast of the Lizard Peninsula, where the famous shipwreck scene for the TV series Poldark was to be filmed some 330 years later. The site is largely hidden beneath shifting sands, with prevailing westerlies making it impossible to dive. But suddenly last September, part of a cargo carried on that fateful final voyage became exposed and the sea was calm. It enabled David Gibbins, a British maritime archaeologist, to recover weights that bear the Portuguese royal coat of arms and which are thought to have been cast in bronze as early as 1500. He told The Telegraph that they are “among the most remarkable finds to be made on a wreck of this period anywhere”. Each weight is a half-hundredweight - 56 pounds today.
