Meghan McCain says shes emotionally exhausted having to address Trumps comments, doesnt expect decency from presidents family

Health-and-Medical
An "emotionally exhausted" Meghan McCain again defended her father against President Trump Thursday on "The View," saying she doesn't "expect decency" from his family. “I don’t like coming here every day and having to do this, as all of you know. It’s extremely emotionally exhausting,” she said at the top of the show. "I don't expect decency from the Trump family," she added. During an official White House event at a tank manufacturing plant in Ohio on Wednesday, Trump spent nearly five minutes bashing the late Sen. John McCain because he didn’t receive credit for his funeral arrangements. “I gave him the kind of funeral that he wanted, which as president I had to approve.” Trump said. “I don’t care about this. I didn’t get a thank you. That’s OK.” The crowd of Ohio tank facto

As threat passes, activists say Deer Park chemical fire brings attention to persistent issues

Health-and-Medical
A massive chemical fire south of Houston, Texas, triggered an emergency order for locals to shelter in place even after a dangerous chemical was detected in the air. Local officials and public health experts say most of the risk from the Deer Park fire has passed and that further testing didn't find elevated levels of the dangerous chemical after a release this morning. But activists say the nearly week-long incident brought attention to the risk to communities located near facilities in the U.S. that use dangerous chemicals on a daily basis. "We're all being completely violated in a way that we're really not talking about," Yvette Arellano, an activist with Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services, or TEJAS, told ABC News earlier this week. She said TEJAS has been pushing ...

White House rejects House Democrats request for Trump-Putin communications

Health-and-Medical
The White House rejected a request from Congressional Democrats for a slew of documents related to President Donald Trump's phone calls and meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin. White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, in a letter sent Thursday to the chairmen of the House Oversight, Foreign Affairs, and Intelligence Committees, said that Congress has demonstrated no legal or constitutional authority to gain access to the president's diplomatic communications. "The president must be free to engage in discussions with foreign leaders without fear that those communications will be disclosed and used as fodder for partisan political purpose," Cipollone wrote. "This is why, from the Nation's beginning, Presidents from all political parties have determined that the law does not requ...

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin says he intentionally exposed kids to chicken pox instead of giving them vaccine

Health-and-Medical
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin admitted in a radio interview on Tuesday that he intentionally exposed his nine children to chicken pox instead of giving them a vaccination. Bevin told WKCT, a station in Bowling Green, Kentucky, that his children were "miserable," but they "all turned out fine." Once children get chicken pox, they are generally immune for the rest of their lives. Contracting the disease as a teenager or adult can be much more serious, and includes symptoms such as pneumonia, inflammation of the brain (encephalitis) and hemorrhagic complications, according to the Centers for Disease Control. "They got the chickenpox on purpose because we found a neighbor that had it and I went and made sure every one of my kids was exposed to it, and they got it," Bevin told the radio stat...

Facebook admits to inadvertently storing hundreds of millions of user passwords in plain text on company servers

Facebook officials admitted on Thursday that the tech giant stored hundreds of millions of user passwords in plain text -- able to be read by employees.
