President Donald Trump on Thursday poured cold water on any suggestion his son, Don Jr, could run for mayor of New York City, saying he "wouldn't have a chance of winning". "No, I hope [he doesn't run] because he couldn't win as a Republican," said Mr Trump, when asked by Fox Business host, Maria Bartiromo, if Don Jr might throw his hat into the ring in the 2021 race. Mr Trump, who appears frequently on Fox, had been discussing the elimination of cash bail in New York, a policy he claimed has "destroyed" the city.
Just a week after Fox News' Chris Wallace got roasted for ceding control to Donald Trump and Joe Biden on the debate stage, USA Today's Susan Page fared little better with the vice-presidential contenders. Page repeatedly allowed Kamala Harris and Mike Pence to interrupt each other as well as her throughout the debate. And while she posed probing questions during the 90 minutes, she often declined to pose follow-ups when they dodged the substance of the questions.
The FBI has thwarted an alleged plot to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-Mich., and stage a violent coup against the state government, according to a federal criminal complaint published by The Detroit News.

And the alleged shooter was captured and arrested several hours later, police said, when he returned to his hotel room to pick up some belongings.
President Donald Trump has suggested that he might have contracted coronavirus from Gold Star family members. Gold Star families are the relatives of US military personnel who died in battle, and on Thursday, president Trump suggested that he may have caught Covid-19 while listening to them talk about their late relatives, according to Politico. During an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo on Thursday, president Trump said that he “figured there would be a chance” of becoming infected, after meeting with some Gold Star families.
Facebook has removed hundreds of fake accounts tied to right-wing group Turning Point USA, which enlisted a now-banned marketing group to flood comment sections of news stories to attack Joe Biden and Democrats while praising Donald Trump. The social media company announced on Thursday that marketing firm Rally Forge had worked with Turning Point USA to make 200 profiles and 55 pages on the platform and 76 on Instagram, beginning in 2018 and continuing through 2020. Facebook said the accounts violated the company's polices about “coordinated inauthentic behaviour” that relied “on real people, not automation” to “create the perception of wide-spread support of their narratives by leaving comments on posts by media entities and public figures.”
Sen. Kamala Harris made herself sympathetic to women everywhere when she grew frustrated with Vice President Mike Pence repeatedly cutting her off during their debate. "Mr. Vice President, I'm speaking," she sternly reminded him on more than one occasion, drawing attention to the fact that women frequently get talked over by men in settings as varied as the office to the vice presidential debate stage. During CNN's post-debate analysis, Gloria Borger reflected on the senator's tactic.
When his neighbor was in danger one day in 2018, Donald Lowrie raced right into the fight. Now Lowrie, 50, is being celebrated as a national hero for rescuing the 8-year-old girl who was being attacked in her home by two pit bulls. Lowrie is one of 17 people awarded the 2020 Carnegie medal, which recognizes people who have risked their lives trying to save others.

Mayor Bill de Blasio warned there would be “no tolerance” for violence after a night of furious protests in the city's Orthodox community over new shutdown orders in Brooklyn and Queens — which will take effect Thursday morning. Neighborhoods in so-called “red zones” where the coronavirus is rapidly spreading will face closure of nonessential businesses, strict limits on houses of worship, and a ban on gatherings under orders issued by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Infection rates have surged, in some cases as high as 8 percent, as city and state leaders nervously stare down a potential second wave of the virus in a city that lost close to 24,000 lives and once formed the national epicenter of the Covi...
"Come here tomorrow we're gonna be talking about the 25th Amendment, but not to take attention away from the subject we have now," Pelosi said. The 25th Amendment's Section 4 offers a path to stripping a president of power if, for instance, his Cabinet believes he has become incapacitated, but this has never been invoked.
A conservative commentator interrupted the only woman on a CNN panel while defending Mike Pence against accusations that he repeatedly spoke over Kamala Harris during Wednesday night's vice presidential debate. Former GOP senator and Trump supporter Rick Santorum appeared on the network to discuss the clash between Ms Harris, 55, and Mr Pence, 61, both of whom went head-to-head on a number of key issues ahead of November's election. Following the contest, Mr Pence was accused of repeatedly cutting in on his rival, with a CBS News analysis showing that he made twice as many interruptions (10-5) as Ms Harris, and spoke for two minutes longer.

But according to a new analysis by polling expert Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight, that possibility is most unlikely. Released on October 7, "FiveThirtyEight's 2020 House of Representatives Election Forecast" says that Democrats have a 92-97% chance of maintaining their House majority in November — and it is possible that they will even expand it slightly. FiveThirtyEight's Nathaniel Rakich explains, "While Democrats are slight favorites to flip the Senate and Joe Biden is a solid-but-not-overwhelming frontrunner for the presidency, Democrats have between a 92 and 97% chance of keeping control of the House."
An evangelical pastor called Kamala Harris “Hillary Clinton in blackface” in a shocking exchange following the vice presidential debate with Mike Pence. Darrell Scott made the offensive comment while appearing as a guest on Laura Ingraham's Fox News show The Ingraham Angle on Wednesday. Mr Scott and Scott Bolden, former chair of the DC Democratic State Committee, were discussing the Democratic vice-presidential nominee's comments on Black Lives Matter protests which occurred across the US.
247 Blinds designed a puzzle that challengers readers to find a jack-o'-lantern in a sea of pumpkins and fall leaves. It takes an average of one minute to find the jack-o'-lantern, although the retailer said one person spotted it in 54 seconds. Halloween may look a little different this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, so one company turned an All Hallows' Eve tradition into a virtual game.
Regeneron, the company that made the antibody cocktail Trump received, told the MIT Technology Review that it used HEK 293T cells — a line of cells that scientists have used for decades — that originally came from a fetus aborted in the Netherlands in the 1970s. But so much time has passed and the cells have divided so much that scientists no longer consider them to involve abortion — a Regeneron spokeswoman said the cell lines available today "are not considered fetal tissue." A representative also told Business Insider HEK 293T cells "are immortalized epithelial cells, not stem cells, embryonic stem cells or fetal tissue."
Mike Pence once more repeated claims that a Joe Biden administration would end fracking during his debate with Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice-presidential nominee. Amid a discussion on the environment and the climate crisis on Wednesday night, Mr Pence made the unsubstantiated claim that the Democratic presidential nominee would “ban fracking”. Instead, the Democratic presidential candidate has said he would not ban the controversial drilling practice because the United States needed to “transition” to newer and cleaner energy sources.
