First lady Michelle Obama probably helps Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail more than President Obama does, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Friday. “Based on the strong support and deep respect that people across the country have for her, based on the compelling personal argument that she’s been making in support of secretary Clinton, and she’s also quite talented in her own right at delivering a speech, and those things I do think combine to make her a very powerful advocate for secretary Clinton — and probably the most powerful advocate that secretary Clinton has,” Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing.

This is the lush, tropical side of Maui, where rain falls hard and guts great canyons through lava flows and sticky red mud. Is this a realistic test for the average workday for Toyota’s hardcore off-roader, the Tacoma TRD PRO? Maui is covered in Tacomas.
Republican Gov. Chris Christie approved of a traffic study on the George Washington Bridge, his former deputy chief of staff testified Friday in her criminal trial, but federal prosecutors say it was actually a cover story for a political payback scheme designed to cause traffic jams. After the conversation with Christie, Bridget Kelly sent an email that read "time for some traffic problems" to David Wildstein, the self-described mastermind of the plot. Kelly is accused of plotting with Wildstein and another former Christie ally to close lanes on the bridge, which connects Fort Lee and New York, as revenge against Fort Lee's Democratic mayor, who wouldn't endorse Christie's re-election effort in 2013.

Nearly 24 hours after Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head-to-head for the third and final presidential debate, they found themselves on the same stage again — only this time, for lighthearted ribbing. Every four years, the Al Smith dinner, an annual fundraiser for Catholic charities, offers a moment of levity and self-deprecation at the tail end of grueling campaigns. Trump’s sense of humor and brash attitude didn’t quite translate to the white-tie gala meant to raise money for children in poverty throughout New York.

Now, as Barack Obama prepares to end his historic turn on the political stage, Yahoo News is running The Last 100 Days, a look at what Obama achieved during his consequential presidency, how he navigates the struggles of his last months in office and what lies ahead for him after eight years filled with firsts.

The Uber CEO also spoke about how a tractor trailer could be built to drive itself in varying different scenarios, on long highway routes for example.
