Pentagon: Missile Fired At U.S. Navy Destroyer Off Yemen's Coast : The Two-Way : NPR

"The Pentagon says that a missile has been fired at U.S. Navy destroyer USS Mason off the coast of Yemen — for the second time in four days.

"At least one missile" originated from Houthi-controlled territory near the Red Sea port city of al-Hudaydah, Pentagon press secretary Peter Cook said in a statement to NPR's Tom Bowman.
"The ship employed defensive countermeasures, and the missile did not reach the USS Mason," the statement reads. "There was no damage to the ship or its crew." He adds that the ship employed "defensive countermeasures," without elaborating."

"Producers of "The Apprentice," the reality show Donald Trump hosted for more than 10 years, are sitting on bombshell footage of the GOP nominee using the N-word, an Emmy-award winning producer claimed Sunday.

In a series of tweets Sunday, producer Chris Nee said she's heard such tapes exist of Trump using the obscenity but isn't in possession of the footage herself.
Nee, who didn’t work on “The Apprentice,” also hinted that she, and many others, had signed a contract with Mark Burnett, the lead producer of the show, that would make anyone who leaks such footage liable to pay a $5 million fine."

Hurricane Matthew: Haiti dead reach 800 as south awaits aid - BBC News

"The UN has warned it could take days for the full impact of Hurricane Matthew in Haiti to emerge, as the death toll soars to more than 800 dead.

The death toll has doubled, and may rise, as rescue teams gain access to southern areas cut off by the storm.

The World Food Programme's Carlos Veloso says some of the hard-hit towns can only be reached by air or sea.

Many of the deaths in Haiti were in the south-western coast, which suffered the full force of the hurricane this week."

"Much like his leader and Royal Whiteness Donald Trump, Republican VP nominee Mike Pence lied, squinted, lied and then lied some more. That’s been the method of operation for Republican nominee Donald Trump and his cronies during the entire campaign. As John Fulgelsang once alluded brilliantly and crudely about another Trump surrogate, the douche doesn’t fall far from the bag?” Tuesday night’s Vice Presidential Debate proved two things—Trump and Pence represent most everything that’s wrong in America, and they will say whatever they want to try and get elected."

"NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—In an appearance Friday on CNN, Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Presidential nominee, promised that as President he would get tough on East Korea.

‘This behavior is unacceptable,’ he said. ‘The East Koreans are making us look like idiots.’

While stressing that he remained, for the most part, an isolationist, he said, ‘I will do everything in my power as President to support our allies in West Korea.’

He also blasted the Obama Administration for its ‘lack of transparency’ in conducting foreign policy. ‘I think it’s unconscionable that I just found out about these countries today,’ he said."
