Officials in Melbourne, Florida said this week that a bullet lodged in a man’s testicle after his wife shot him during an argument.

WKMG reported that the incident occurred while 60-year-old Victoria Reid was confronting her husband about an alleged affair.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office said that Reid forced her husband to sit on the couch, and then she threatened to give him post-traumatic stress disorder by maiming him. Reid told deputies that she also suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

Former NYC mayor Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance is being widely panned by pundits.

The Root's Dr. Jason Johnson told MSNBC viewers just how bad he thought Bloomberg did at the Democratic debate in Las Vegas: "The most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. He lost everything."

"This probably was the most expensive night in Vegas I've ever seen. Bloomberg lost everything.

How Democrats clean up the messes left by Republicans

For decades, Democratic administrations have been cleaning up economic messes left to them by Republican administrations. Thanks to Donald Trump, they'll have to do so again.

Before diving in, we need to understand this one concept: the debt-to-GDP ratio.

The national debt is a meaningless number on its own. It's meaningful only as a percentage of the total economy, the GDP. Even if the debt grows, that's okay so long as the economy grows even faster. But if the reverse is true — if the economy is growing more slowly than the debt — we're in trouble.

Then Reagan began cutting taxes and spending a huge amount on the military. By the time he left the White House, the debt-to-GDP ratio was nearly 50 percent. He viewed it as a way of "starving the beast" so future Democratic administrations would find it harder to fund programs for the poor and average working people.

Faiz Shakir, the campaign manager for Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., claimed that right-leaning Fox News has treated the self-described democratic socialist "more fair" than left-leaning MSNBC.

"Fox is often yelling about Bernie Sanders' socialism, but they're still giving our campaign the opportunity to make our case in a fair manner, unlike MSNBC, which has credibility with the left and is constantly undermining the Bernie Sanders campaign," Shakir told Vanity Fair in an interview published Tuesday.
