Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail after his NBC town hall to call Today Show host Savannah Guthrie "totally crazy" in her attempts to moderate the event, in which she called the president “someone's crazy uncle”. Trump called Joe Biden, the head of an "organized crime family" with Hunter Biden following around his famous father to "vacuum" millions of dollars to enrich the family. The rant was delivered at an event for seniors in Florida, where Trump promised that the elderly would be first in line for a coronavirus vaccine, and would also receive for free the experimental treatment given to the president, which made wake up asking: "Who can I fight today?"

Minutes later, officers found the body of the male teacher.
A major Democratic group on Friday pulled its last remaining ads from Colorado's closely watched U.S. Senate race, a sign that the party thinks its nominee has the crucial race in the bag. Senate Majority PAC said it will cancel $1.2 million in television ads and spend the money elsewhere as Democrats press a newly expanded Senate map, which Republicans on the run in GOP strongholds such as Alaska and South Carolina. Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, 68, is challenging Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, 46, in Colorado, a state that has trended sharply to the left since President Donald Trump's 2016 election.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) asked the Justice Department and other U.S. agencies to detail if China Unicom's continued U.S operations pose national security risks, according to a letter released Friday. In April, the FCC issued show-cause orders warning it might shut down the U.S. operations of three state-controlled Chinese telecommunications companies: China Telecom, China Unicom and Pacific Networks Corp and its subsidiary ComNet (USA). China Unicom Americas has a nearly two-decade old authorization to provide international telecommunications services to and from the United States.
Dismal polls and poor debate performances are predictably not playing well within President Trump's campaign — but campaign manager Bill Stepien is reportedly not doing much to change that. Stepien's weekly pep talks encourage staffers to look away from "perennially horrible public polls" and find ways they can "win the week," staffers tell Axios. Stepien is reportedly fond of comparing the campaign to a plane flying through turbulence, saying "It's our job to safely land the plane."
The Democrats' case for the election of Joe Biden is that he will keep the crazies in his party in check. The Democrats' case for the election of Kamala Harris is that she will not. Joe Biden is 77 years old.
A white woman who called police on a black man bird watching in New York's Central Park made a second call accusing him of attempted assault, prosecutors say. Amy Cooper appeared in court on Wednesday charged with falsely reporting an incident. A viral video showed Ms Cooper threatening Christian Cooper, no relation, with the police when he asked her to put her dog on a lead.
Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett repeatedly avoided answering questions during her confirmation hearings this week. Barrett leaned on the "Ginsburg rule" in justifying her refusal to address an array of topics, though it's a rule that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg didn't actually follow. Where Barrett didn't answer, Republicans often stepped in and made her position on hot-button topics like abortion abundantly clear.
Guthrie piqued Trump on multiple occasions during the town hall event, including pressing him on the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory — which claims a cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles have infiltrated the highest-ranks of the federal government — which Trump refused to disavow even though it has been deemed a domestic terrorism threat by the FBI. Trump claimed to “know nothing about QAnon,” despite Guthrie laying out its outlandish tenets to him. The once-fringe conspiracy theory has increasingly found a home in corners of GOP politics and become a thorny issue for mainstream conservatives.
FBI agents are investigating whether emails allegedly found on a laptop at a Delaware repair shop discussing presidential candidate Joe Biden son's supposed business activities in Ukraine are linked to a foreign intelligence operation, according to a report. Two sources familiar with the matter told NBC on Thursday night bureau chiefs are looking into the possibility that the email cache - allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden - may have been unearthed with help from a power hostile to the US, such as Russia. FBI agents recovered the laptop and hard drive through a grand jury subpoena that was later published by the New York Post, the Trump-friendly newspaper that first printed a story based on the alleged emails.
A convicted gang member accused of beating singer R. Kelly in his jail cell was allowed to roam “a great distance” at the federal jail in downtown Chicago and no one “lifted a finger” to ward off the attack, Kelly's lawyers alleged in a court filing Friday. Kelly's attorneys want to question Jeremiah Shane Farmer under oath about the August attack as part of their ongoing efforts to have Kelly released on bond pending trial on sexual abuse-related charges. Farmer, a convicted member of the Latin Kings, outed himself as Kelly's attacker in a court filing last month in Hammond, where he's facing a mandatory life sentence for racketeering conspiracy involving a 1999 double murder.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he was "wrong" not to wear a mask to the White House Rose Garden event for the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Christie and several other attendees and White House officials later tested positive for COVID-19. In an interview with The New York Times, Christie detailed his experience since his COVID-19 diagnosis, saying he hoped his experience showed others that "you should follow CDC guidelines in public no matter where you are and wear a mask to protect yourself and others."
U.S. President Donald Trump participates in the first presidential debate against Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden at the Health Education Campus of Case Western Reserve University on September 29, 2020 in Cleveland, Ohio. The New York Times editorial board on Friday dropped a massive essay that outlines the case against re-electing President Donald Trump to a second term. The essay does not hold back in describing Trump's presidency in apocalyptic terms, and it begins by saying he "poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II."
Peter Larson stopped his tractor in the middle of the soybean fields his family has operated for decades in North Dakota to seriously consider what might happen if he went through with his decision. It wasn't exactly the most thought-out plan: a few days earlier, the farmer had come up with an idea to plow through acres of his land to carve out a sign in support of former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate, California Senator Kamala Harris. He etched out their last names on a loose piece of paper he carried with him in his tractor until he decided to go through with it.
The race for driverless autonomous vehicles is heating up and on Thursday Cruise became the first to receive a permit to test cars without anyone in them on the streets of San Francisco from California's Department of Motor Vehicles. Cruise, which is majority owned by General Motors Co and counts Honda Motor Co Ltd <7267.T> and SoftBank Group <9984.T> as investors, has been testing 180 self-driving cars in San Francisco with a safety driver behind the wheel, and the permit allows five of those cars to roam empty. “So that's a step or two beyond what we'll be doing initially with this permit,” said Dan Ammann, Cruise's chief executive.
Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina has set a fundraising record for Republican Senate candidates, bringing in $28 million in the third quarter of a reelection battle that is becoming among the more expensive in the country.
President Donald Trump did not deny a New York Times report that he owes $421 million at a Thursday town hall event. The Times revealed that Trump has to pay back $421 million in the coming years in a bombshell exposé detailing his personal and business tax returns. The documents obtained by the outlet showed that Trump had paid $0 in federal income taxes for a decade before paying $750 in 2016 and 2017.
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's tax plan remains a sticking point for some voters. A meme posted to Facebook on Sept. 15 says Biden is no friend of working folks because of his voting history on taxes, such as his vote for a 1983 bill authorizing a 50% tax on Social Security. The former senator from Delaware was also the deciding vote in raising the Social Security tax rate to up to 85% in 1993, according to the meme.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein hugged Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham at the close of Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings on Thursday. Feinstein also thanked Graham for leading the hearings. Democrats responded negatively to the chummy show, with many calling for Feinstein to step down from her leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plans to launch its electric Jaguar I-PACE sedan in India next year, the automaker's country head told Reuters on Thursday, as governments across the world push for more clean-energy vehicles.
