A discussion on why some Republican women voters are sticking with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump turned into a shouting match when Trump advocate Kayleigh McEnany attempted to pin the blame for former President Bill Clinton’s affairs on Hillary Clinton.
Appearing on Erin Burnett’s OutFront, CNN regular Angela Rye began talking about Trump’s video comments — where he admitted that he has sexually abused women — by describing how the law specifically defines sexual assault.
“One of the things I wanted to do was read quickly just what the definition of sexual assault is because he denied any type of sexual assault when Anderson asked him about it at the debate last night, ” Rye began. “‘Sexual assault is any type of sexual contact or behavior that occurs without the explicit consent of the recipient. falling under the definition of sexual assault are sexual activities as forced sexual intercourse, forceful sodomy, child molestation, incest, fondling and attempted rape.’ If you’re grabbing people in their private areas, that is fondling, that is sexual assault.”
“Just so ironic,” McEnany parried. “The selective outrage that the left is okay with Hillary Clinton who put private investigators on people who had viable sexual assault claims, it’s selective outrage.”
“No, it’s not!” Rye shot back.
Turning back to McEnany attempting to pin the sins of Bill Clinton on the Democratic presidential nominee, Rye stated, “That’s rape culture. Kayleigh! You’re blaming someone who succumbed to someone committing adultery on her. We’re Christians. Let’s talk about what that is!”
As McEnany talked over Rye by shouting, “She was accused of facilitating it last night and she was definitely silent,” a frustrated Rye finally had enough, yelling back, “Kayleigh, you’re wrong! You know why. It’s f’ing ridiculous, dude! It’s so ridiculous.”

White House adds 20 percent increase to ‘best case’ projection of coronavirus deaths
The White House is moving the goal posts once again. Instead of taking drastic action, like asking every state's governor to mandate a quarantine to reduce the spread of coronavirus, it is quietly upping its projected death toll, just one day after stunning Americans with a six-digit death rate.
On Sunday President Donald Trump told Americans he thinks if 100,000 Americans die from coronavirus he will have done "a very good job."
On Monday Dr. Deborah Birx announced the White House is projecting 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
Tuesday evening, the number increased 20 percent.
Olympic athletes in ‘impossible position’ – Canada
Canadian Olympic chiefs said Monday the health and safety of athletes had prompted the country's decision to withdraw its team from the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A day after Canada became the first team to announce its withdrawal from the July 24-August 9 Games, Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) chief David Shoemaker said athletes had been left in an "impossible position."
With public health authorities urging individuals to stay inside to curb the spread of COVID-19, athletes had been caught between a desire to heed health and safety advice while trying to minimize disruption to training programs.
Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
