WATCH: Abuse survivor left in tears after encounter with Trump surrogate at post-debate event

Published

After Sunday night’s debate, a young woman said that she tried to confront Trump surrogate Omarosa Manigault over her continued support for Donald Trump despite his boasts of sexual assault — only to be coldly blown off.

Per Death and Taxes, reporter Christine Dubill on Sunday night went into the women’s room and found a young woman crying inside. She asked if the woman would like to talk about why she was upset on camera, and she consented.

The woman said that she was a survivor of an abusive relationship, and she wanted to ask Omarosa how she could continue to support Trump’s candidacy after a video emerged of him boasting that he could get away with grabbing women’s genitals because of his fame.

According to the woman, Omarosa behaved rudely during their interaction.

“I was fine when I was asking her, I’m very upset right now because she was dismissive and condescending,” the woman said. “Sorry, that I’m choking up. It just brought up a lot of emotion because I think that should be disqualifying for just basic human decency.”

After video of the exchange emerged, Omarosa went on a Twitter tirade alleging the woman was a paid actor being used to gin up unnecessary controversy.

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.

In a progressive welcoming move, Chief Justice John Roberts issued his New Year's Eve annual report urging his fellow federal judges to stand up for democracy.

"In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public's need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital," he wrote. "We should celebrate our strong and independent judiciary, a key source of national unity and stability."

Trump’s next 100 days will dictate whether he can be re-elected or not — here’s why

Published

on

According to CNN pollster-in-residence Harry Enten, Donald Trump's next 100 days -- which could include an impeachment trial in the Senate -- will hold the key to whether he will remain president in 2020.

As Eten explains in a column for CNN, "His [Trump's] approval rating has been consistently low during his first term. Yet his supporters could always point out that approval ratings before an election year have not historically been correlated with reelection success. But by mid-March of an election year, approval ratings, though, become more predictive. Presidents with low approval ratings in mid-March of an election year tend to lose, while those with strong approval ratings tend to win in blowouts and those with middling approval ratings usually win by small margins."
