MANILA (Reuters) – The girlfriend of the retiree who killed 59 people in a massacre in Las Vegas is returning to the United States from the Philippines, sources at Manila’s international airport said on Wednesday.
Marilou Danley, who U.S. authorities have said is a “person of interest” in the investigation, left on Tuesday evening, police and immigration sources told Reuters. She arrived in Manila in September, they said.

Meghan McCain on Tuesday reacted angrily when Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke said that President Donald Trump is acting like a Nazi during an appearance on ABC's "The View."

"You're talking about Trump supporters, comparing them to Nazis in Nuremberg," she said. "That sounds extreme to me as well."
"No, I'm not comparing everyone..." O'Rourke began.
"You compared his rally to Nuremberg!" McCain interrupted.

Fox News cuts into Trump’s Turning Point USA speech after he starts rambling about handshakes
Fox News on Tuesday briefly interrupted a speech being delivered by President Donald Trump at a Turning Point USA summit.
During his speech, Trump started talking about delivering a commencement address at the Air Force Academy.
"They said, sir, would you like to shake the hands of all the cadets? I said how many other? They said 1,100. I said yeah, that sounds okay,” Trump remarked.
“Do other presidents do it? Yes, they do. Do all of them? What they didn’t say is they start, then they peter out. That sun was beaming down, and if some of these guys are great athletes — some of the women, they had some women in the class, their hands were very strong, okay.”
