Everything you need to know about Hurricane Dorian in 10 graphics

Published

Hurricane Dorian is thankfully slated to skate just to the east of Puerto Rico this week, but the updated European model shows it nailing central Florida much in the same way Hurricane Andrew did in 1992.

Dorian did reach hurricane stage as it went into the U.S. Virgin Islands, which are still trying to recover after the 2017 hurricanes. While it is expected to slow as it crosses the Bahamas.

The European Model for hurricanes has proved to be more accurate with long-term projections than the U.S. tracks in past years. It currently shows Dorian hitting central and south-central Florida before reentering the Gulf of Mexico and turning north to dump heavy rain and wind on the other Gulf States. It then appears to hook east toward Georgia and South Carolina before heading back out to sea.

Fingers stretching out from the eye of the storm show intense lightning.

Hurricane Dorian will be a category three hurricane when it hits Florida, with winds between 110 mph and 129 mph late Sunday. That wind speed doesn’t account for more forceful gusts.

GOP lawmaker scrambles for excuses after being cornered with McConnell’s promise to rig Trump impeachment

Published

On CNN Saturday, anchor Martin Savidge confronted Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), one of Trump's biggest defenders on cable television, about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's claim that he was "coordinating" the impeachment strategy with the White House.

"Where is the impartiality there?" asked Savidge. "And it has to be a concern because, as you point out, you are an attorney and you would be worried if a member of the jury had already stated how they were going to consider."

"Yeah, we heard those comments yesterday, as everyone did," said Johnson. "You know, I've actually talked about this with some of my Democrat [sic] colleagues, those who are very much in favor of impeachment. I said isn't it a fair description of what he said? The way I heard that, Mitch McConnell is talking about the scheduling of the trial, what length of trial or what would be involved with that, with the White House, which is not unprecedented. That's what happened in the Clinton proceedings as well, they coordinated with the White House on scheduling. I don't think he's talking about the merits of the case. I think he's talking about how long will be allowed for this to go forward so I don't think there's anything inappropriate about that."

Jared Kushner’s ties to Saudis could be fair game if Trump keeps going after Hunter Biden: Dem lawmaker

On MSNBC's "AM Joy," Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) laid out the case for impeaching President Donald Trump — and warned of the consequences for Trump's own family at the hands of future presidents if he is allowed to get away with it.

"He abused his power by trying to trade government resources for a political favor, to knock out a political rival in Joe Biden, the guy that he thought would emerge as nominee for 2020," said Castro. "We can't set a precedent where Congress says it's okay for a president to do that, because if we do that then a few things will happen. Number one, it opens the door for Donald Trump to do it again or a future president to do it again. To ask a country to interfere in our elections and knock out a political rival by digging up dirt."

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

on

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.
