    July 18, 2018 12:00 PM 4

    WASHINGTON—Twice last week, Donald Trump told a vivid story about how he had spoken to reporters at his golf course in Scotland the day before the Brexit vote in 2016 and correctly predicted the outcome. None of this happened. He went to Scotland the day after the vote, not the day before. The day before, he offered no prediction at all. Also last week, Trump

    PELHAM, ALA.—An Alabama college student whose car broke down just before his first day of work made the 32-kilometre journey on foot, a feat that earned him fame — and a new car. News outlets report that hours before his first day working for Bellhops movers, Walter Carr set out from Homewood at midnight, making it to Pelham by 4 a.m. Friday. There

    “He grabbed my breasts … He put his hands in my pants and he touched my private parts,” she said. “He touched me again inside the van, and my hands were tied. And he started masturbating.” In 2014, a 19-year-old asylum seeker, “E.D.,” was staying in a family detention centre in Pennsylvania with her 3-year-old son. A few months into her seven-month stay, she was sexually

    “I’ve never seen a more outrageous thing, where they sue the victims in an effort to find a judge they like,” attorney Robert Eglet, who represents some of the victims, told the Review-Journal, accusing MGM of “judge-shopping” in federal court, rather than state court where he believes any lawsuits should be filed. “It’s just really sad that they would

  • Anthony Bourdain unloaded on Bill Clinton in one of his final interviews, accusing him of ‘gropey’ behaviour

    July 17, 2018 1:03 PM 5

    Anthony Bourdain’s suicide last month sent millions of the television host’s fans into tailspins of mourning.

But now one of Bourdain’s final interviews has been released — a brief reappearance of the honest

    July 16, 2018 12:57 PM 8

In 2015, a Pennsylvania

    Early Saturday, the migrants were taken off the boat and transferred onto a rescue vessel from the EU border patrol agency Frontex and a ship from the Italian border police.
