On Wednesday, CNN host Brooke Baldwin shamed President Donald Trump after he continued his attack on the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ).
Trump said that he wasn’t a fan of McCain and complained that he didn’t get a “thank you” after giving McCain the kind of funeral he wanted.
“This is coming from the president of the United States again disparaging the late Senator John McCain. It’s disgraceful,” Baldwin said. “It’s sad at this point.”
“There is something much deeper going on here, the president saying that veterans are on his side, disparaging the late senator as a war hero,” CNN reporter Barbara Star said. “This is politicizing the U.S. military. And you might ask yourself today, why has the U.S. military been so quiet? Why has the president’s attacks on his war record gone unanswered? Why are they letting the president in public say the veterans are with him and his decisions? There is no indication, no reasonable indication that America’s veterans are anything but American citizens who vote their conscious across the political spectrum.”
She then called out the GOP’s silence to Trump.
“Why are they afraid of the president?” she said.
Disney heiress who went undercover to Disneyland ‘livid’ at conditions and pay
Heiress Abigail Disney went to one of her family's resorts to see conditions for workers herself and was disgusted by what she saw.
In comments to Yahoo News podcast "Through Her Eyes," Disney described how she went to Disneyland in California undercover and found that workers at the resort were treated poorly—and underpaid.
"Every single one of these people I talked to were saying, 'I don't know how I can maintain this face of joy and warmth when I have to go home and forage for food in other people's garbage,'" said Disney.
Ex-Peru president wanted for corruption arrested in the US
Former Peruvian president Alejandro Toledo was arrested in the United States Tuesday to face extradition to his home country on corruption charges, authorities in the South American nation said.
The 73-year-old is suspected of involvement in the sprawling Odebrecht scandal in which the construction giant paid hundreds of millions of dollars in bribes throughout the continent to secure huge public works contracts.
The Peruvian attorney general's office announced on Twitter that Toledo "was arrested this morning for extradition, in the United States."
Toledo has been formally charged with receiving a $20 million payment from Odebrecht to grant it the tender to build the Interoceanic Highway that links Peru with Brazil.

A smorgasbord of sequels, prequels and reunions from "Terminator" to "Game of Thrones" awaits thousands of misty-eyed comic book geeks and sci-fi nerds descending on San Diego this week for the world's largest celebration of pop culture fandom.
