Like countless drunk people before him, the slim man clad in a T-shirt who wandered into an Atlanta-area Waffle House on Jan. 2 was there on a mission: He wanted to sober up with the help of some greasy food before heading home. But before he could order his hash browns, he passed out facedown on the counter.
WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump said Monday that he rejected a suggestion by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., that he allow the government to temporarily reopen while continuing negotiations with Congress over funds for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
William Barr, President Donald Trump's choice for attorney general, says he would let Special Counsel Robert Mueller "complete his work" and that he would provide Congress and the public as much of the findings in the Russia probe as possible. "The country needs a credible resolution of these issues," Barr said in opening remarks prepared for his Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday. "If confirmed, I will not permit partisan politics, personal interests, or any other improper consideration to interfere with this or any other investigation."
"Celebrity Big Brother" has once again dipped into President Donald Trump's former employee rolls for on-air talent: CBS announced Sunday that Anthony Scaramucci, the man who lasted less than two weeks as the White House communications director, is joining the B-list cast of the "Real World" meets "Survivor" competition series.
Sunday's Patriots-Chargers playoff contest made history, and not just because New England advanced to an unprecedented eighth straight conference title game. The victory over Los Angeles by Tom Brady and Co. also saw Sarah Thomas become the first female on-field official in the league's postseason history.
As the first strains of Tina Turner's "Proud Mary" filled the Anaheim Arena on Saturday, Katelyn Ohashi came alive. Executing a quick body roll with a giant smile plastered across her face, it was clear that the 21-year-old UCLA gymnast was in her element, as she kicked off her high-energy floor routine with a massive tumbling pass that ended in a flawlessly stuck landing.
BEIJING - A Chinese court issued the death penalty on Monday in the retrial of a convicted Canadian drug trafficker, a sentence that is expected to sharply escalate China's diplomatic row with Canada and the United States. Robert Lloyd Schellenberg's new sentence comes after an appeals court this month sided with prosecutors who argued that his original sentence of 15 years was too light given new evidence implicating the 36-year old's role in an organized drug trafficking operation.
President Donald Trump called former Vice President Joe Biden a "weak" man when asked Saturday night about a growing list of Democrats seeking to topple him in 2020. Trump - who prizes strength, attacks his enemies as weak and has often resorted to name calling - resurrected previous insults against Biden as the former U.S. senator from Delaware mulls his third presidential bid. He mocked Biden's two unsuccessful attempts for the White House and said former President Barack Obama "took him off the trash heap" when he tapped Biden to be his vice president.
This past week, President Donald Trump argued on national television that to end the opioid epidemic, Congress needed to fund the building of a wall at the United States' southern border. What he didn't discuss was the fact that most opioid abuse and addiction begins with legal medications such as OxyContin and Vicodin. And regulating those prescriptions is complicated.
WASHINGTON - Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Sunday that President Donald Trump should agree to reopen the government and continue trying to hammer out a deal with Democrats on funding his long-promised border wall - but that the president should declare a national emergency if no progress is made in three weeks. In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Graham maintained that Trump is not going to give up on his demand for more than $5 billion in funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
