Alabama and Georgia tornado devastation

A series of tornadoes moved across Alabama and Georgia Sunday but one massive wedge tornado destroyed Beauregard, Alabama. Upon seeing the snapped trees and destroyed homes, a WRBL reporter breakdown while speaking to the local sheriff about what people can do to help.

“Everyone’s asking what they — they want to help,” the reporter can be heard saying off camera with her voice shaking. “They just want to help.”

The local sheriff noted that it was beginning to get dark and that was their greatest obstacle in helping find people and ensure residents were safe. At least 14 residents were killed by the storm but that number is expected to rise as crews search through debris.

Tornado season is generally in the spring and tornado alley is considered to be the middle of the country. However, earlier spring tornados often pop up in the southeastern United States. Mississippi is known for having many tornados during the season, but they generally aren’t as large or as strong as those that spring up in tornado alley.

“It's up to them. They can do what they want. They can leave, they can stay, but they should love our country,” the president told reporters Tuesday when he was asked about his remarks.

On CNN Tuesday, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali explained how Donald Trump's comments -- and his Republican counterparts' refusal to call them racist -- is rooted in a dangerous white supremacy, or terror at the "browning of America."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes

Rep. Devin Nunes of California has never been shy about promoting right-wing conspiracy theories, and the Republican congressman has come up with one involving House Democrats and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller: that the two are joining forces to create a “narrative” about President Donald Trump and the Russia investigation.

Mueller is scheduled to appear before two Democrat-led committees next week on Wednesday, July 24. Previously, Mueller’s testimony was scheduled for July 17, but it was postponed a week in order to give House members more time to ask him questions. And Nunes, during an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News on Monday night, insisted that Mueller and Democrats are conspiring against the president.

HBO's fantasy epic enraged fans with its bumpy conclusion but still trounced the competition at the small-screen equivalent of the Oscars.

"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" -- Amazon's story of a 1950s housewife-turned-stand up comic -- was a distant second on 20 nominations.

"Thrones" was already the most decorated fictional show in the awards' seven-decade history, and now has 161 nominations overall, according to the Television Academy website.
