“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough made a bold statement on Monday morning, saying President Donald Trump “isn’t going to win re-election” in 2020. Scarborough said the 2018 midterm results were “clarifying” and indicated the importance of suburban voters. If those suburban voters who leaned Democrat in the 2018 elections continue doing so, the MSNBC host said, that could lead to a huge problem for Republicans in 2020.
Traditionally, there was a fire season in California, running from roughly June until late October — the period when the state was at greatest risk of wildfires, and the public was reminded to take precautions and listen for alerts. Fire Captain Scott McLean works in Sacramento but lives about 90 miles north in the city of Chico, a 20-minute drive from Paradise, which was just incinerated in the Camp Fire.
Kate McClure’s lawyer says the New Jersey woman was “set up” by Mark D’Amico, her now-ex-boyfriend, as well as Johnny Bobbitt, the homeless man who prosecutors say was also in on the ploy. “She was in tears, she was crying, visibly shaking because she realized what they were saying — and that is that she had been being used by D’Amico and by Bobbitt. McClure, 28, D’Amico, 39, and Bobbitt, 34, are facing charges of theft by deception.
A woman and a child are detained by U.S. Border Patrol agents between two border structures on the U.S. side of the southern border Tijuana, Mexico, on Nov. 15, 2018. Migrants traveling through Mexico as part of highly publicized — and highly politicized — caravans finally began to arrive in Tijuana by the hundreds last week, reaching what many hope will be the last stop on a long and arduous pilgrimage that began in Honduras more than a month ago. “Where I want to go is the United States of America,” Cesar, 23-year-old asylum seeker from Honduras, told Yahoo News over the phone from a shelter in Tijuana earlier in the week.

The now-infamous Camp fire continues to burn throughout northern California, wreaking death and destruction in towns like Paradise, where many structures burned to the ground. The death toll of at least 77 continues rising, with 1,276 people reported missing. In Butte County, where Paradise is located, members of the sheriff’s Search & Rescue Team, along with volunteers, have been going house to house looking for human remains. The Camp fire has destroyed about 10,500 homes and torched 233 square miles.

Thousands of people have been evacuated from the area surrounding the Fuego volcano in Guatemala amid fears of further eruptions after red-hot rock and ash threatened lives and homes when it erupted on Sunday. Burning lava burst as high as 3,200ft into the sky, and flows of boiling debris ran nearly two miles down one side of the volcano – the latest in a string of eruptions. A column of ash rose nearly 23,000ft above sea level and drifted towards Guatemala City nearly 20 miles away.

Already under fire being a no-show at a ceremony in France commemorating the end of World War I and at an event at Arlington National Cemetery honoring U.S. soldiers on Veterans Day, President Trump on Monday attempted to deflect criticism of his dismissive remarks about a respected retired naval commander — the man in charge of the daring raid that killed Sept. 11 mastermind Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. In an interview with Chris Wallace that aired on Fox News on Sunday, the president appeared to mock retired Admiral William McRaven, a Navy Seal who commanded the Joint Special Operations Command from 2011 to 2014, for not taking out bin Laden sooner. “Wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama bin Laden a lot sooner than that, wouldn’t it have been nice?” Trump asked.
As Northern California still reels from the deadly, ongoing Camp fire ― with dozens dead, hundreds still missing and thousands left homeless ― local communities and groups are stepping up to make sure those displaced will get a Thanksgiving meal this week. About 26,000 people have been displaced from Paradise and other communities, and about 700 remain listed as missing. Nearly 1,000 people were still sleeping in Red Cross and community shelters across the state as of Monday night, the group said.
Intense fighting broke out in Yemen's port city of Hodeidah late on Monday, shattering a lull in violence that had raised hopes for a ceasefire between a Saudi-led coalition and Houthi insurgents as the United Nations tried to resume peace talks. One resident said a medium-range missile had been fired from the city centre towards the district in the suburbs. The coalition led by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had last week ordered a halt in its offensive against the Houthi-held Red Sea port city, now a focus of the war, amid pressure from the West to end a conflict that has pushed Yemen to the brink of famine.
“The OPEC community has understood the difficulties we face –- Libya has withheld more than any other country from the global market,” National Oil Corp. Chairman Mustafa Sanalla wrote in a phone message. OPEC and its allies are considering cutting oil output in 2019 as the group is increasingly concerned about the potential for oversupply. Libya, along with Nigeria, has been exempt from cuts since January 2017 due to domestic conflict.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has been accused of inciting hate against India's highest caste after being photographed holding a poster declaring "smash Brahminical patriarchy" during a visit to the country. Dorsey was snapped holding the offending poster alongside six women who participated in a discussion last week on the role of Twitter in India, where caste is a flashpoint issue and grievances can turn violent. "Do you realise that this picture has potential of causing communal riots at a time when several States are going to Assembly Elections in India," tweeted Indian police officer Sandeep Mittal.

This was the year Florida's Democrats spoke ambitiously of ending their 20-year journey in political exile in this battleground state. Instead, election results after a tense and bruising recount showed Republicans coming out on top for governor and even picking up a U.S. Senate seat. After a recount dragged on for nearly two weeks, top Democratic candidates in the state came agonizingly close but fell short of their avowed goal.
George T. Conway III, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, has emerged as one of President Trump’s most persistent, biting critics, describing the administration his wife works in as a “s***house in a dumpster fire” in an interview with the Yahoo News Skullduggery podcast. Conway is a prominent Republican lawyer who supported Trump during the campaign. In the same podcast interview, Conway spoke for the first time about his own role in helping to drive the events that led to Clinton’s impeachment — a cause he took up, he said, over his outrage about the president’s efforts to avoid accountability for allegations of sexual harassment dating back to when he was governor of Arkansas.

While visiting California's wildfire zones on Saturday, Trump told reporters that Finland spends "a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things" to clear forest floors, citing his discussions with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto. Niinisto told Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat that he had spoken with Trump about Finland's wildfire monitoring system.
Home-renting company Airbnb Inc said on Monday that it would remove listings in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, enclaves that most world powers consider illegal for taking up land where Palestinians seek statehood.

An Airbnb spokesman said the decision, affecting some 200 listings, would take effect in the days ahead.

Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking at abortions and the right to choose. In 1973, the Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to a new study by Pew Research Center, nearly 60% of Americans believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases. Unsurprisingly, the views about this issue vary widely between the political parties. Among the general public, the study shows there’s no significant difference in opinion between men and women. But support varies by race, with whites and blacks more accepting than members of Hispanic groups. And support is higher among individuals with higher education. Do you think abortion should be legal?
