A.J. Delgado, a senior adviser to Donald Trump’s campaign, said Friday that it was accurate for Trump to call Hillary Clinton a “nasty woman” at the third and final presidential debate.
On “The Alan Colmes Show” on Fox News on Thursday, Rep. Brian Babin of Texas invoked Southern gentility as he tried to explain why he believes that women should be called out for being nasty. “You think it’s appropriate to call her a ‘nasty woman’?” pressed Colmes, a liberal political commenter.
From the ambush and killing of five police officers in Dallas in July to the tragic police shooting of Philando Castile and other minority men, the issue of policing has taken the spotlight during this presidential race — with Americans very divided on the issue.
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.
If you’ve ever squirmed through a mean-spirited, ill-advised wedding toast delivered by somebody’s inappropriate, drunk uncle, then you’ll have some sense of the feeling in the room at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel on Thursday night, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton attended the annual fundraiser for Catholic charities known as the Al Smith Dinner. The event has become a regular stop near the end of the presidential campaign cycle over the past decade, but its history stretches back more than 70 years. Over time, nominees have been invited or excluded based largely on their relationships with the Catholic Church.
Another woman came forward Thursday accusing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of “inappropriate sexual conduct” in a press conference called by women’s rights attorney Gloria Allred. Allred introduced Karena Virginia, a yoga teacher and “inspirational speaker,” at the London Hotel in Manhattan — within walking distance of the famed Trump Tower. “After Donald Trump was caught on tape bragging about groping women, a number of women came forward to share their experiences,” Virginia said.
Moments before the third and final debate of the presidential campaign Wednesday night, Republican candidate Donald Trump launched a live stream on his Facebook page that some think might have been the inaugural broadcast of Trump TV. The Trump campaign, partnering with a pro-Trump live-stream outlet called Right Side Broadcasting, organized an extensive broadcast that resembled how other news outlets covered the big night at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Trump had previously pushed out live streams from Right Side Broadcasting, a young online network that streams every one of the mogul’s events.
Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, was tired of getting questions about his comments that the election is “rigged” when she spoke to reporters in the spin room at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, on Wednesday night. “Is this the only question there’s going to be?” Conway said when Yahoo News asked her about his comments. Trump, who is running behind his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton in the polls, has repeatedly suggested that the vote could be rigged in recent appearances on the campaign trail.
One of the early clashes between the candidates in the final debate was over so-called partial-birth abortion — an abortion procedure that is sometimes performed later in pregnancy that Hillary Clinton has said should remain legal and that Donald Trump opposes. After saying he would appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court on the assumption that they would overturn Roe v. Wade, Trump said: “I think it’s terrible in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Clinton responded that this was a misinterpretation of how late-term abortion works.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence visited the charred interior of a GOP office in North Carolina that was firebombed over the weekend. The Indiana governor denounced the arson attack as “cowardly” and an “act of political terrorism” after touring the site in the town of Hillsborough. “I wanted to come by to call attention to this cowardly attack on our supporters in North Carolina and to no less extent an attack on the American political system.
On Monday’s “Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” O’Reilly said the Republican presidential candidate should quit “whining” at the debate and instead focus on a few issues that matter to him. The third and final presidential debate between Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is set to take place Wednesday night at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. “That’s whining,” O’Reilly said.
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about Donald Trump’s locker-room talk. He said, “If Donald Trump ever set foot in an actual locker room, I can guarantee you he’d get his ass kicked.”
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about what could be next for Donald Trump after the 2016 election. In response to the news that Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, reportedly had an informal discussion with an investor about a possible Trump TV network, Borowitz said, “There’s money to be made from people’s anger and racism; it will be done.”
Andy Borowitz of the New Yorker and The Borowitz Report spoke to Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric about the role the media has played in bringing attention to Donald Trump. He said, “Donald Trump got way more attention. He got billions of dollars worth of free media.” He continued, “The primary unfolded like a reality show, where you had a huge bunch of people on the island, and Trump’s real goal was to ritually and serially humiliate every one of the people off the island.”
Two more women came forward Friday with new allegations of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump, one a former model who says the Republican nominee once put his hand up her skirt and the second an “Apprentice” star who charges he kissed and groped her without consent.
On Friday, Oct. 14, 2016, Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga talks with Malcolm Nance – a former intelligence official and author of the new book, “The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election.” The two discuss Vladimir Putin and Russia’s influence and impact on the 2016 election.
The national spokesperson for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign argued on Wednesday that Trump could not possibly have groped a woman aboard an airplane because seats in the first-class cabin had fixed armrests in the early 1980s.
Ben Carson defended Donald Trump amid new sexual misconduct allegations on Thursday. During a “Fox & Friends” interview, Carson accused the New York Times and other mainstream media outlets of being “biased” against Trump when they reported on women leveling groping and other accusations against him.
On Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2016, Yahoo News and Finance Anchor Bianna Golodryga talks with Kristen Soltis Anderson, columnist for the Washington Examiner and Republican pollster, about the latest news from the 2016 election campaigns.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence on Wednesday framed the decision between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as an epochal choice, and implied that Christians who sit out the election lack courage. What did you do?” Pence said in a speech at Liberty University, a Christian university of 15,000 on-campus students in southwest Virginia. “There’s no place for believers on the sidelines at a time like this,” Pence said.
Not regulators like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, whose very existence was questioned yet again when it didn’t find out about the fraud until long after it began. Although Warren did not herself use legislation or official congressional power to get Wells Fargo to claw back $60 million from executives, her public shaming and the Facebook post that followed fanned the public opinion fires so vigorously that the bank’s board had to do something to quell shareholders and an angry public.
“Democracy in a big, diverse country doesn’t work if you constantly demonize each other,” President Obama noted Tuesday, speaking at a rally in Greensboro, N.C. “And I mean that literally, by the way. Obama then sniffed his arm for effect, delighting the crowd of Clinton supporters attending his speech. Jones runs the website Infowars and is a purveyor of numerous conspiracy theories, among them claims that 9/11 was an inside job, that the government is turning American children gay through their juice boxes, that no one died at Sandy Hook and, most recently, that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are possessed by demons.
New York Times columnist Frank Bruni said Wednesday that should Hillary Clinton win the presidency — which he predicted — she should focus on being a leader for the whole country so that the next segment of American politics doesn’t feel like another war being fought. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll released earlier this week had Trump with just a 1-point lead with the group, down from a dozen points over the summer.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a Web video on Wednesday that mocked Donald Trump and accused him of being in the middle of a meltdown. The video is set to the tune of “The Final Countdown,” the 1986 hit by the Swedish rock band Europe. As the Clinton parody video notes, Trump has been fiercely lashing out at both the Democratic nominee and Republican critics since last Friday, when the Washington Post published a 2005 video of him bragging that his celebrity status allowed him to kiss and grope women.
