Megyn Kelly rips Hillary Clinton in a tweet

"Hillary Clinton went on record, called yours truly 'a superb journalist' when Trump was attacking me. Why won't she come on 'The Kelly File'?" Megyn Kelly asked Hillary Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon after the debate Monday.

The Fox News host really wants Clinton to come on her show.

And this tweet makes it pretty clear she's frustrated that Clinton hasn't accepted her invitation yet. Apparently, the tipping point was that Clinton did a 30-minute interview with a singer, rather than a journalist like Kelly. 

So why would Kelly be so frustrated?

For starters, Kelly's colleagues Bill O'Reilly and Bret Baier have both gotten interviews with Clinton. 

According to TVNewser, Kelly has the second most watched cable news show — behind O'Reilly. But she has the most watched cable news show among the crucial 25- to 54-year-old demographic.

Clinton has done interviews with cable news hosts who have fewer viewers, like CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's Rachel Maddow. 

The other issue Kelly apparently has — based on her tweet — is she feels Clinton has used her to attack Donald Trump. Perhaps she's referring to this moment back in April.

"His attitude about and what he has said about so many women, the way he treated Megyn Kelly, who is a superb journalist, right? I just don't understand what he thinks is the role of somebody running for president," Clinton told "The View" co-hosts.

Clinton's press secretary told Kelly on Monday it's "only a matter of time" before Clinton comes on her show.

Police release video of El Cajon shooting

Police in El Cajon, California, have released surveillance video showing the moment officers fatally shot Alfred Olango.

The video shows Olango darting back and forth in the street as an officer approaches him. A second officer arrives, and the two corner Olango. One officer fires a Taser at him. The other fires a gun.

Police say Olango went into a "shooting stance" and pointed an object at the officers before he was shot. That object later turned out to be a vape pen.

Olango's death on Tuesday has triggered several days of protests in El Cajon, some of which turned unruly. Demonstrators have demanded police release footage of the shooting and open a federal investigation into Olango's death.

The city advised all downtown businesses to close early Friday because of the release of the video.

Seahawks Doug Baldwin says he's received death threats for stance on police shootings

Seattle Seahawks’ receiver,and son of a policeman, Doug Baldwin told "60 Minutes Sports" that he has received death threats after taking a stance on police shootings.

Since their home opener, the Seahawks stood together linking arms during the national anthem on game day – in what Baldwin called a “demonstration of unity.” 

The Seahawks’ demonstrations come as a number of athletes have followed the lead of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick refused to stand for the playing of the national anthem in protest of what he deems are offenses against African-Americans and other minorities.

In the interview with "60 Minutes," Baldwin said when Kaepernick started to take a knee, he felt compelled to show support. While telling correspondent Jon Wertheim about the conversation with Kaepernick, Baldwin mentioned death threats.  

Watch the video on YouTube or here.

“A couple of people told me to watch my back,” Baldwin told correspondent. “[I respond to the threats] the same way Colin did. There’s issues going on in our society that people feel compelled to talk about. I’m not going to be quieted about it.”

The interview falls on the heels of Baldwin making a call to attorneys general in all 50 states. He says they need to review training policies for law enforcement across the country.

Baldwin’s Sept. 23 statement came in the wake of a pair of police shootings this week, one in Charlotte, North Carolina, another in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

 BBC News anchor Kate Silverton was moved by the video while presenting it live on air. Video shows her sniffling after watching the report on the BBC.

She later tweeted a response to the people who reached out to her after her emotional moment, saying “To all of your sending thoughts – thank you – no words really – my job to be inscrutable & impartial but I am also human.”

7 military trainees from Afghanistan missing from U.S. bases

More than half a dozen military trainees from Afghanistan have disappeared over the course of about two weeks.

They were training at U.S. bases, including Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia, and Fort Benning near Columbus, Georgia.

>> Read more trending stories 

“It’s concerning and legitimately so,” Georgia State University security and counterterrorism expert Robert Friedmann said.

Seven trainees went AWOL from bases so far this month. Friedmann says he doesn’t think the timing is a coincidence.

“It's fairly likely that it was coordinated, because that's too much of a coincidence,” he said.

The same weekend that a U.S. citizen from Afghanistan detonated a bomb in New York City, two trainees disappeared from Fort Benning, one from Fort Lee, Virginia, and one from Little Rock, Arkansas.

Two weeks later, one walked away from Fort Gordon and two more from Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri.

The Afghans were part of a Department of Defense training program for foreign soldiers.

"Planning, critical thinking, company commander level and challenge staff level -- it's a great experience for me,” an Iraqi soldier says in a video about the program on Fort Benning’s website.

While the federal government vets each student ahead of time, Friedmann said the disappearances expose gaps that are often overlooked.

“It could be that the students get into the program not because they want to be better military professionals, but because they see it as a vehicle to come to the country and then move on to some other purposes,” he said.

Last December, two Afghan airmen disappeared from Moody Air Force Base in south Georgia. One turned up in Virginia weeks later. The other is still missing.

Friedmann says it's unclear whether the AWOL Afghans pose a specific threat but that “the integrity of the program clearly needs to be improved."

So far the feds have not identified the seven new missing Afghans.

In a written statement, a spokesman with the Department of Homeland Security said, “ICE's Homeland Security Investigations is aware of the situation, and is actively working to locate these individuals in coordination with the State Department and the Department of Defense."

A group of ladies went to LaBare Houston only to have men from their nursing home take the stage. 

"The music starts and, unlike the hunks I expected, out comes the wheelchair brigade," 88-year-old Esther Weinstein told KTRK.

The prank was revenge for an incident months ago in which the ladies of the same nursing home had crashed a party at Hooters.

"We dressed up in our Hooter outfits with our big balloons. Anyway, that's besides the point. They had been looking for a way to get back at us," 86-year-old Loretta Roman told KTRK.

Crystal Olson, 32, was at the end of a drive-thru line at a Palm City-area McDonald’s on Sept. 13 and asked a woman whether or not she wanted to purchase crack or Xanax, TCPalm reports. Deputies said Olson had “slurred speech and swayed as she sat” when they approached her and began to search her purse.

“As she handed me her purse, Olson stated that the purse was her sister’s,” the report stated, according to TCPalm. “When asked why she had her sister’s purse, Olson stated that it was actually her purse, but her sister stole it, and she recently took it back.”

Deputies said drug paraphernalia was found in the purse and Olson told them it “belonged to her sister,” who was trying to “frame her.” She allegedly added that she was carrying a straw in order to “snort her prescription Klonopin.” Olson was arrested on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

"All I'm doing is bringing up a situation which is very real about immigration. And I think most people think I'm right," Trump said in the interview.

The video was recorded in June for one of a pair of lawsuits filed after chefs backed out of plans to open restaurants at Trumpp's new Washington hotel in the wake of his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants, Politico reported.

"They're bringing rapists. They're bringing drugs," he said in July 2015.

In the deposition videos released Friday, an attorney asked Trump, "Did you write the statement in advance? Was it written?"

"No," Trump said. 

"Did you plan in advance what you were going to say?" she asked.

"Yes," Trump said.

Buzzfeed News, CNN, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post were among the news outlets that petitioned the court to obtain the deposition videos.

8-year-old author of 2 books on Amazon

When Annie Pryor was very young, she wrote a book, saved it and read it to daughter Katie as a toddler. Whether that inspired Katie or not, Annie’s not sure — but at 8, Katie now has written, illustrated and published two books, and is working on the third in her “Princess Katie” series.

“Katie started making up, then writing stories when she was very young,” said her mother. “I found that Amazon has a CreateSpace, where books can be uploaded for free, and they’re made when orders come in.”

She told her daughter, now a third-grader, that if she wrote and illustrated a complete book, they’d try out the site.

>>Need something to lift your spirits? Read more uplifting news  

“Last winter, she wrote the story and did preliminary drawings, then drew and colored a picture for each page over the summer. She worked so hard until it was finished — then I formatted and uploaded it to the Amazon site.”

Katie’s first book, “Princess Katie and the Fairy Tea Party,” is available on Amazon, and her second book,“Princess Katie and the Mermaid Lagoon,” was released Sept. 7. She’s already begun her third book, “Princess Katie and the Sweet Shop.”

“I like princesses a lot, so I made myself into a princess in the stories,” says Katie. “I had to work really hard, especially on the drawings. I use lots of pink, because that’s my favorite color.”

There are no boys in her books “because they wouldn’t want to come to a tea party or a mermaid lagoon,” notes the young author/illustrator.

“I am so proud of Katie and all of the hard work she’s done to publish her first two books,” says her father, Jonothan Pryor. ”All the hours she spent perfecting her illustrations and writing her stories has really given her a sense of accomplishment.”

“She has a list of about 10 books she wants to do,” said her mother. “All of them are about Katie, but there are other princesses in some of the books, all friends of Katie’s.”

After her first book was published, Annie helped Katie throw a tea party for her friends, and a few boys attended, including her two brothers, 6-year-old Michael and 12-year-old Jon. “Michael wants to publish books someday, too, but Jon wants to be a moviemaker and already has his own YouTube channel,” said Annie Pryor.

“My books are in the school library,” says Katie. “My teacher read my first book out loud to the whole class, and they liked it, especially the girls.

“I don’t know yet if I want to grow up and be a writer, but I do want to do more now because I have lots of titles in my head.” And, she has a bedroom full of princess items to inspire her. “I’ve got famous princess dolls from movies, and princess costumes – I’m usually a princess at Halloween, and will be this year, too.”

Katie’s books sell for $9.95 each on Amazon, and her royalty is $2 a book, which her mother says “is going to her college fund — or a pink castle.”

Poll: People are ending friendships over presidential race

A recent poll by Monmouth University found that friendships have been ended due to someone’s feelings toward either candidate in the presidential election.

The school reports in a news release that 7 percent of the people they polled said they had ended a friendship over the presidential race while 2 in 3 said that this race has “brought out the worst in people.”

According to the school, 802 registered voters in the United States were polled over the phone in September. The data showed that 4 percent of the people surveyed found that the election brought out the best in people, while 30 percent said the “harsh language used in politics today is justified given the current state of the country.”

Monmouth University added that 47 percent of Donald Trump voters that were polled said that the harsh language is justified, compared to only 17 percent from Hillary Clinton supporters and 21 percent undecided.

"Half of Trump supporters seem to be saying let the expletives fly, but many voters blame both sides equally for the negative tone of this year's campaign," Patrick Murray, director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in the news release.

According to the data, 7 percent of voters reported having a friendship come to a close due to the reactions to the presidential race, with 9 percent being Clinton supporters, 6 percent being Trump supporters and 3 percent undecided. The poll also found that 34 percent of voters feel the country is doing enough to prevent future terrorist attacks, while 57 percent said not enough is being done.

'Just get it out of the food': Senator wants chemical banned

The controversial chemical Bisphenonal A, commonly called BPA, is in food and metal food containers like baby bottles and cans of soup.

Sen. Ed Markey, D-Massachusetts, says the substance should be banned, even as scientists disagree on whether small amounts of BPA leaching into food and drink is a health concern.

>> Read more trending stories

This week Markey introduced a bill called the "Ban Poisonous Additives Act," a prohibition on BPAs. 

"We just have to finally say there is no role for BPA in anything that is connected to any food product in the United States," Markey said. 

The National Institutes of Health says it has "some concern" about the impact of BPA on the brain and other organs of infants and children.

Twelve states have taken steps to ban or restrict the chemical.

But the FDA has said it is safe, especially given the relatively minor amount that might be exposed in food and drink.

"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the European Food Safety Authority and other government agencies around the globe have found no public health risk associated with BPA in any food or beverage," reads a statement on the American Beverage Association's website.

Young mother killed in Hoboken train crash recently moved to New Jersey

Fibiola Bittar de Kroon, 34, left her hometown of Santos, Brazil, for New Jersey last year to follow her husband when his job relocated him to New York, the Post reported. She dropped her 1-year-old daughter off at daycare just before Thursday's crash.

"You just saw a smile on her face every time she came to pick up her daughter, and that's what I keep seeing," daycare director Maria Sharp told The Associated Press.

A former co-worker, who worked alongside de Kroon at a company that specialized in travel to Brazil, told the wire service that she was left speechless by de Kroon's death.

"(I) feel like the world stopped for some moments," Marques said. "I had the privilege to get to know and work with Fabiola for some years, and I can say she was a great, talented" woman with a "big and genuine heart."

De Kroon's husband, Daan, was on a business trip in Pennsylvania at the time of the crash. Daycare director Carlos Magner told WNBC that he asked for employees' help to figure out how to tell his daughter that her mother was gone.

"'What should I say, how should I address this?'" he asked, according to an emotional Magner. "And I said, 'You're not born knowing how to address this. Just stay strong, be there for your daughter.'"

Family members told Brazilian media that they're focused on bringing de Kroon's body back to the country.

"We are in shock," de Kroon's mother, Sueli Bittar, told G1.

Pet tortoise found alive 30 years after disappearing in family’s cluttered home

The debut Friday of the third season of Amazon’s Emmy-winning series “Transparent” has brought with it an interesting vignette about a pet tortoise named Nacho who, after disappearing and being presumed dead for decades, is found alive in the Pfefferman family home.

That unbelievable storyline is actually based on a true story, series creator Jill Soloway told the Huffington Post.

National Geographic offers more on the story of Manuela, a red-footed tortoise who, in 1982, was the pet of the Almeida family in a suburb of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. When Manuela vanished, the distraught family assumed she had escaped after workmen at the house left the front door open.

When family patriarch Leonel Almeida died in 2013, family members were clearing out items he had hoarded in a storage shed when son Leandro found a box containing an old record player and records.

A very alive Manuela was also inside. A neighbor was the first to spot her and speak up.

“‘You’re not throwing out the turtle as well are you?’ I looked and saw her,” Leandro Almeida told Brazil’s Globo TV in a 2013 interview. “At that moment, I turned white, I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”

>> Read more trending stories

National Geographic reported that red-footed tortoises are known to go without food for up to three years in the wild, but experts were stumped as to how Manuela was able to survive for 30 years. A Rio-based veterinarian suggested she could have lived off of termites and other small insects, along with condensation when she needed water.

Turtles also have fat reserves that sustain them when food is hard to come by and, like snakes, they are able to lower their body temperature and slow down other physiological processes and enter a state of suspended animation, from which they can recover, National Geographic said
