    Donald Trump threatens to bring Gennifer Flowers to debate

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump threatened Saturday to bring Gennifer Flowers, with whom Bill Clinton admitted to having a sexual relationship decades ago, to Monday’s presidential debate. The taunt is a response to prominent Trump critic Mark Cuban’s plans to sit in the front row of the debate at the invitation of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. It’s the Republican nominee’s latest public reference to the 42nd president’s infidelity, which he has occasionally cited in his campaign to criticize his Democratic challenger. “If […]

    Appreciate the apostrophe — it’s National Punctuation Day!

    Appreciate the apostrophe, salute the semicolon and exalt the exclamation point today. It’s National Punctuation Day! The holiday started when Jeff Rubin, a former reporter, grew increasingly frustrated as he spotted errors in the newspaper. “I would sit at the kitchen table with my red Sharpie … screaming obscenities, which would upset my wife,” Rubin told CNN. “She encouraged me to find another outlet for my aggravation.” In 2004, he secured a listing for the day in the “Chase’s Calendar […]

    McDonald’s tests all-day breakfast Happy Meal

    NEW YORK — McDonald’s may soon add the Happy Meal to its all-day breakfast menu. It plans to test-market the iconic kiddie boxes, with two McGriddles cakes or an egg-and-cheese McMuffin, on Monday at 73 restaurants in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area. If they catch on, McDonald’s could offer breakfast Happy Meals nationwide next year. The breakfast options would be the first “entree item” added to the Happy Meal menu in more than 30 years, spokeswoman Becca Hary said. There’s nothing […]

    LONDON — Images of the Duchess of Cambridge and her children are reportedly among some 3,000 images stolen in a hack of Pippa Middleton’s iCloud account, according to Britain’s Press Association news agency. Both Britain’s Sun and Daily Mail newspapers reported that an anonymous seller had been in contact offering the images for sale.

    North Korea at UN: US faces ‘consequences beyond imagination’

    NEW YORK — North Korea went on the offensive Friday, blasting the US for “aggression” in Asia, blaming Washington for its pursuit of nuclear weapons and threatening the US with “tremendous consequences beyond imagination.” The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea “had no other choice but to go nuclear,” Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told the UN General Assembly, to defend itself “from the constant nuclear threats from the United States.” Ri’s comments came as the US and Asian nations gathered […]

    Hillary Clinton postpones visit to Charlotte, North Carolina

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign announced late Friday that she is postponing a visit to Charlotte, North Carolina, until early next month. The decision comes hours after the city’s mayor, Jennifer Roberts, asked Clinton and Donald Trump in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett not to visit this weekend due to the unrest following the police shooting of a black man. Clinton’s campaign did not mention Roberts’ request in a statement. “Hillary is grateful for, and intends to honor, the invitation from […]

    Ratings in Trump-Clinton debate expected to be sky high

    NEW YORK — The first presidential debate of 2012 averaged 67 million viewers. Experts believe the first debate this year will beat that number. Exactly how high? A debate topping the 100 million viewer mark is unlikely — but not inconceivable. Television networks stand to make millions of dollars from the ads that run before and after the debate. The ratings matter for political reasons as well: Any surprising victory or embarrassing performance by a candidate will be magnified by […]

    Target gets rid of kid-sized ‘demon mini carts’ after backlash from moms

    NEW YORK — Target got rid of kid-sized shopping carts after a backlash from shoppers who ridiculed them as irritating and even demonic. Target introduced the kiddie carts in a handful of stores last year and expanded the test in New York and Minnesota last month. But they didn’t last long. In fact, they’re already gone. The backlash gained steam when Laura Rinas, a Minneapolis mother who writes the blog Laughing Without Limits, wrote that the newly introduced “vehicle of […]
