Donald Trump has fallen further behind Joe Biden following bombshell reports that the president knowingly misled Americans about the dangers of COVID-19 and privately disparaged dead U.S. soldiers as “suckers” and “losers,” according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll. The survey, which was conducted from Sept. 9 to 11, shows Biden leading Trump by 10 percentage points among registered voters, 49 percent to 39 percent. The results suggest that a week of unrelenting and unflattering revelations about Trump — from the Atlantic report on his alleged contempt for Americans wounded or killed in war (which appeared on Sept. 3) to Bob Woodward's recordings of Trump admitting he downplayed the deadliness of COVID-19 (released on Sept. 9) — has damaged the president's standing with voters.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that the US needs to "hunker down and get through this fall and winter" until a vaccine arrives. The US "didn't shut down nearly as much" as Europe, Fauci said, pointing to data on grocery-store visits, park visits, and workplace attendance. Americans need to "hunker down and get through this fall and winter," which includes flu season, in order to successfully wait out a vaccine, Dr. Anthony Fauci said in a panel discussion with Harvard Medical School on Thursday.
In a segment on the raging West Coast wildfires, Fox News host Tucker Carlson tried to make the baffling argument that Democratic leaders' warnings about climate change are “like systemic racism in the sky. He extended the bizarre metaphor, lamenting that there was supposedly no explanation for how climate change causes more wildfires (there is! and mocking Democrats for not explaining science to him: “You can't see it, but rest assured, it's everywhere, and it's deadly.
A satellite image of the Northeast Pacific taken by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on Sept. Credit - NOAA Satellite images recently shared by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) show massive amounts of smoke engulfing the Western Coast of the United States and extending hundreds of miles over the Pacific Ocean, as dozens of wildfires continue to ravage California, Oregon and Washington and create dangerous air quality conditions for millions. The unprecedented wildfires — which experts say are fueled by climate change — have burned hundreds of thousands of acres and killed at least at least 14 people, according to NPR.
Nine protesters who were confronted by a gun-toting couple in St Louis while passing their house during a Black Lives Matter march have been issued with trespassing citations. Police spokeswoman Evita Caldwell confirmed that nine of the roughly 300 protesters who passed the McCloskey residence in June have been issued summons, but that a decision on whether to issue charges on the citations is still pending with the St Louis City Counselor's office. Mark and Patricia McCloskey were photographed brandishing semi-automatic guns at the protesters who walked past their $1.5m home during the protest following the killing in police custody of George Floyd, an unarmed black man, in Minneapolis.

MOSCOW—Tears of joy ran down Lyubov Sobol's face when news came through that Alexei Navalny had awakened after more than two weeks in a coma. The 32-year-old blond lawyer, who cultivates a nerdy look with her dark-rimmed glasses, spent a decade fighting Russia's state corruption at Navalny's side. In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast, Sobol revealed who she suspects of poisoning Navalny and why.
Hundreds of farmers continued to hold a remote dam in northern Mexico on Friday as time was running out for the country to catch up on payments and avoid breaching a 1944 water treaty with the United States. Mexico's National Water Commission warned that farmers who took over a dam in the border state of Chihuahua earlier this week damaged the facility's controls, with just about six weeks to go before an Oct. 24 deadline for handing over a massive amount of water that Mexico owes the United States. Asked if Mexico could still meet the deadline with one of its main dams seized by protesters who are blocking any further releases, Blanca Jimenez, the head of the National Water Commission, said that “the situation looks very complicated.”
The United States Postal Service was accused Friday of misleading American voters by sending a national mailer encouraging them to plan ahead before they vote by mail. Jena Griswold, the Colorado secretary of state, leveled the accusations against USPS in a tweet late Friday, arguing the mailer is "confusing" because laws and vote-by-mail procedures vary on the state level. "This may have started off as a well-intentioned effort by @USPS, but their refusal to listen to election experts combined with the recent postal slowdown in some parts of the country is beyond suspect," Griswold, a Democrat, tweeted.

The sudden death of a young celebrity would be big news anywhere. But the frenzied coverage of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death and vilification of his actor-girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty has dominated prime-time in India, leading many to ask whether the story is distracting from more important issues at a time of national crisis. The media obsession began in June when Rajput was found dead in his apartment.
Faced with a U.S. Treasury Department report linking him to a Russian agent, Rudy Giuliani defended himself Saturday by claiming he had no idea that Ukrainian lawmaker and conspiracy-peddler Andriy Derkach was a foreign operative. In an interview Saturday on AM Joy, the president's personal attorney refused to directly answer questions from interviewer Jonathan Capehart about how he could have been in the dark about Derkach's political affiliations. “You're a former prosecutor from the Southern District of New York, a former mayor of New York City, you have a national security firm,” Capehart said.
Federal prosecutors pursuing child sex trafficking charges against Ghislaine Maxwell say their case would be jeopardised if a separate civil lawsuit against the heiress was allowed to continue, in an extraordinary appeal to the judge. Prosecutors from the Southern District of New York (SDNY) have argued that there is a "factual overlap between the civil and criminal cases" and there was "significant risk" that proceeding with the civil suit jeopardises the criminal prosecution against Ms Maxwell. The civil suit, filed earlier this year under the pseudonym Jane Doe, contains allegations that are substantially similar to those in the criminal indictment against Ms Maxwell, who allegedly groomed three minor girls to be abused by Epstein in the mid-1990s.

Tesla owners have found parts inside their Model Y cars held on by straps that don't appear to be standard. In forums, some owners said the parts looked like someone had "made a run to Home Depot to make Q2 numbers." It isn't clear how widespread the possible use of the non-standard parts is, or if they can cause any issues with the cars' performance.
California's governor passed a bill Friday that will give prisoners battling the state's massive wildfires a chance to avoid a different battle after their release: That of finding a job. Under California bill AB2147, Gov. Gavin Newsom is allowing certain prisoners who are on the front lines of wildfire containment to have their records expunged after serving their sentences. The goal is to make it easier for them to have a firefighting career after release.
