Doctors at Planned Parenthood of St. Louis, the only abortion clinic still operating in Missouri, will no longer perform two pelvic exams on patients, as mandated by the state earlier this month, CBS News reports. Missouri's Republican-led government enacted a rule that forced doctors to perform a pelvic exam on women 72 hours before they have an abortion; already, doctors conduct pelvic exams right before the procedure.

Mark Hamill came up with a plan to get people to stop vandalizing President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: give it to his Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher. Hamill tweeted the idea on Wednesday morning, after sharing an article from 2018 about the West Hollywood City Council voting to ask the Los Angeles City Council and Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove Trump's star, which he received for his work producing beauty pageants.

As part of an investigation into the unexplained deaths of nine American tourists over the last 13 months in the Dominican Republic, the FBI is testing samples taken from a minibar at one of the hotels where some of the Americans stayed, Dominican officials told CNN on Wednesday. The samples were taken from the Bahia Principe Hotel, and Ministry of Health communications director Carlos Suero said anytime a person dies in a hotel room, authorities test samples collected from the room's minibar, sink, and shower for bacteria.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) doesn't usually criticize other 2020 candidates. He made an exception for Joe Biden. At a Tuesday fundraiser, the former vice president mentioned how, during his Senate stint in the 1970's, he preserved "civility" with then-senators James Eastland and Herman Talmadge. Biden didn't mention that the two Democrats were segregationists, but lauded how he never considered them "the enemy" and still "got things done.". New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was the first to call out Biden, tweeting out a picture of his multiracial family and what Eastland would've thought of them. It’s 2019 & @JoeBiden is longing for the good old days of “civility” typified by James Eastland. Eastland thought my multiracial family should be i.

YouTube is reportedly weighing some significant changes in response to criticism that the platform is not safe for children. The company's executives are discussing the possibility of moving all children's content from the main YouTube platform onto YouTube Kids, its separate app for children, in order "to better protect young viewers from objectionable videos," The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday . This isn't the only potentially massive policy shift being discussed, as the report also says that some employees at YouTube are pushing for auto-play to be turned off of children's videos, with this being a way to prevent kids from being shown inappropriate content after watching age-appropriate content.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough went ballistic during a Morning Joe segment on Wednesday, demanding congressional testimony from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a fiery rant.

If Brexit were a three-ring circus, Boris Johnson would be the clown riding a unicycle in the background that constantly interrupted the rest of the show. But as surreal as it seems, Brexit is real. Whether and how the U.K. might leave the European Union remain open questions. But damage from the process has already been done, and more is sure to come. Just how much depends in large part on who Britain chooses as its new prime minister. And somehow, the circus clown is being touted as the next ring leader. How did it come to this? After the 2016 Brexit referendum, Theresa May took over as prime minister. As PM, she honored the EU referendum's result with red lines that left little room for negotiation. Then, in early 2017, she triggered Art.

Fox News' Tucker Carlson is now urging President Trump against a war with Iran both on and off his show. The host of Tucker Carlson Tonight in recent weeks has "privately advised" Trump and warned him not to take military action against Iran while criticizing the administration's "hawkish members," The Daily Beast reports . That's a familiar message to anyone who has tuned into Carlson's show amid rising tensions with Iran, with Carlson in May railing against National Security Adviser John Bolton, saying Bolton wants a war with Iran "more than anything in the world" and that it would be "like Christmas, Thanksgiving, and his birthday wrapped into one."

1. The markets had their highest closings in weeks on Tuesday ahead of a looming policy decision from the Federal Reserve. The S&P 500 came within 1 percent of breaking its April 30 peak and advanced 28 points, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose by more than 350 points, and the Nasdaq climbed more than 100 points. Although Tuesday ended on a high note, futures were mostly flat Wednesday morning ahead of the Fed's second day of meetings. Policy makers are expected to keep interest rates as they are but may indicate a willingness to cut them later this year. The markets also responded positively Tuesday to President Trump's announcement that he spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping and plans to meet with him at the Group of 20 meeting in J.

1. President Trump officially launched his 2020 re-election campaign at a rally on Tuesday in Orlando, Florida, railing against Democrats and setting lofty goals for his second term. In his 90-minute speech to supporters, Trump said Democrats want to "destroy our country as we know it," incited "lock her up" chants aimed at his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton, and promised to "come up with the cures to many, many problems ... including cancer." He also revealed that he's changing his campaign slogan from "Make America Great Again" to "Keep America Great." Trump made several false claims during his speech, saying the unemployment rate has never been lower and that he passed the largest tax cut in history. [ CNN , The Guardian ]. 2. Acting Defen.

It might be time to retire one of the most enduring cliches in modern politics: When it comes to choosing their presidential nominees, Democrats fall in love while Republicans fall in line. Democrats in the last half century have frequently selected fresh faces for president: George McGovern over party elders like Edmund Muskie, the little-known Jimmy Carter, a freshman senator named Barack Obama.

Democrats learned a lesson from their presidential primaries in 2016. Too bad they didn't learn a lesson from Republicans too. Instead, thanks to their desperation to maintain the perception of a fair playing field, the first round of presidential primary debates next week promises to be a debacle, one that will leave Democrats vulnerable to pointless grandstanding and worse. Four years ago, the Democratic National Committee did its best to protect its presumed front-runner from any internecine damage in the primaries. The DNC, under pressure from Hillary Clinton , scheduled few debates, and held them at times not terribly conducive to viewing. They only held four debates before the Iowa caucuses, three of them on the weekends, one of which.

Modern air travel is all about choices. What movie do you want to watch? What craft beer do you want to drink? What remaining middle seat would you like to sit in? Would you like to put your carry-on bag in the overhead bin (for a small fee of $37)? There is only one truly wrong choice you can make, though: Buying a flight that departs later than 8 a.m. I can hear the protests already: If I leave Friday after work, I don't have to take another vacation day! If I return on a Sunday night, I can maximize my time in the Bahamas! The whole day will be ruined if I have to wake up at 3:30 a.m. to get to the airport! I love sleep! These are rookie mistakes. Flying in the morning is cheaper, faster, and strategically wiser than traveling at any oth.

"By now it's well established that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, and they're not done interfering," Stephen Colbert said on Tuesday's Late Show . According to the FBI, Russia is already meddling in the 2016 race, so "keep an eye out for any suspicious online accounts — like anyone who says they're voting for Bill de Blasio," he joked. "But this week, we learned that the Pentagon is fighting back against the Russians," hacking into the country's power grid , according to The New York Times. And also, according to the Times , nobody told Trump about the operation, and for "the reason you fear," Colbert said. "The military thinks they can't share intelligence with the commander in chief because he'll either stop the program entirely

When you're the only student in the only school on a tiny island, your graduation draws a crowd. Gwen Lynch lives with her family on Cuttyhunk, a tiny Massachusetts island. On Monday, she finished the eighth grade and graduated from Cuttyhunk Elementary School, with about 100 people coming to the island's small church to celebrate the milestone. One face stood out from the crowd: the commencement speaker, actress and comedian Jenny Slate. Slate's boyfriend runs a writing workshop on the island, and she agreed to deliver a special message to Lynch. Before writing her speech, she chatted with the teenager, and learned all about her hopes, dreams, and life on the island. "I started to realize that you, who go to school by yourself on an island.

San Francisco's Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Tuesday for an ordinance it hopes will tackle the "growing health epidemic of youth vaping.". The supervisors voted to amend the health code to ban the sale and distribution of e-cigarettes, and the final vote is expected next week. "This is about thinking about the next generation of users and thinking about protecting the overall health and sending a message to the rest of the state and the country: Follow our lead," Supervisor Ahsha Safai said. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that in 2018, 4.9 million middle and high school students were vaping, up from 3.6 million in 2017. The e-cigarette company Juul is based in San Francisco, and says vaping is a safer alter.
