Dr. Fauci criticizes Trump's COVID-19 response, compliments Biden
Infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci drew ire from the White House Sunday after he complimented Joe Biden and disputed President Donald Trump's frequent assertion that the nation is "rounding the turn" on defeating COVID-19. "We’re in for a whole lot of hurt. It’s not a good situation," Fauci said in an interview with The Washington Post. In response, the White House on Sunday accused Fauci of inserting himself into the election. White House spokesman Judd Deere said Fauci should push for changes internally, but instead chose "to criticize the President in the media and make his political leanings known by praising the President’s opponent – exactly what the American people have come to expect from The Swamp."

Sean Connery has died at 90
Sean Connery, who defined the role of "James Bond" for a generation, has died at age 90. During his 007 tenure, Connery was the epitome of the suave but dangerous spy. Away from Bond, Connery received a breadth of roles and acting accolades. And the love for Connery, whom Steven Spielberg called one of "seven movie stars in the world," never dimmed even as he stepped away from acting. “He was and shall always be remembered as the original James Bond whose indelible entrance into cinema history began when he announced those unforgettable words — 'The name’s Bond... James Bond,'" producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a statement.
