Rosie O’Donnell believes Trump ‘is loathed in America’

Actress Rosie O’Donnell talks to CNN’s Chris Cuomo about why she has turned a feud with President Donald Trump into activism in leading a nightly protest at the White House since Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
O’Donnell and Trump have a longstanding feud, dating back to O’Donnell saying on The View in 2006 that he was a “snake-oil salesman.” She was on Cuomo Prime Time to discuss the Monday night protest she organized with anti-Trump demonstrators, featuring 60 current and former Broadway performers singing in front of the White House. She told Cuomo the purpose of the protest was to “remind people of the truth that lives inside them, so when they’re so confused and lied to by our president and this administration, they’re able to find that thing about America that they love.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan won’t seek re-election

House Speaker Paul Ryan has told confidantes he is not seeking re-election and will soon announce his decision, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter told CNN Wednesday.

He is expected to address his decision in a closed-door GOP conference meeting Wednesday morning, the sources said.
Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, has been in Congress since 1999 and became House speaker in 2015.
Some of Ryan’s close friends previously told CNN that he might leave office after the 2018 midterms. Ryan said in a January interview with CBS News that re-election was a decision he and his wife were planning to make together in late spring, and in March he denied a rumor that he wouldn’t seek re-election.

Poll finds Clinton and Trump tied in Utah as a potential spoiler surges
By Dan Merica and Jeff Simon, CNN
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied in Utah, according to a new poll released on Wednesday.
The Y2 Analytics poll, published first by Mormon church-owned Deseret News, found both Clinton and Trump at 26% among likely Utah voters, with independent Evan McMullin at 22% and Libertarian Gary Johnson at 14%.
The poll is striking, given Utah is a reliably Republican state that has not voted for a Democrat since Lyndon Johnson in 1964, but comes after Clinton’s campaign has mounted a concerted effort to win the Beehive State by driving a wedge between the Republican nominee and Mormon voters.
McMullin, a Mormon, was a late entrant to the presidential race and has focused on Utah, where he was born. It’s one of the few states where the former CIA employee will be on the ballot in November.
Earlier this year, Clinton’s campaign opened an office in Utah and published an opinion-editorial in a paper owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that knocked Trump’s proposed Muslim ban, a nod to Mormon’s history of religious persecution.
Clinton’s efforts — as much about winning Utah as forcing Trump to spend resources in a state he should win — have been helped by lewd comments Trump made about aggressive sexual behavior in 2005 that were published last week in a Washington Post report. Trump’s campaign has been in a spiral since comments came to light and many Mormon leaders and lawmakers pulled back their endorsements.
“It is entirely possible that Utah does not vote for Donald Trump,” said Republican State Sen. Daniel Thatcher. When asked to put odds on that scenario, he quickly replied, “50-50.”
Thatcher is undecided between Trump and Clinton, because he finds the idea of voting for either of them “morally repugnant.”
“They’re both awful,” he said. “They’re both quite possibly the two worst people in the universe.”
Utah’s top newspapers have also disavowed Trump. The Deseret News urged Trump to drop out earlier this month and on Wednesday, the Salt Lake Tribune endorsed Clinton over Trump, though that publication has trended Democratic in recent years, endorsing President Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.
“Utah Republicans were perceptive enough to reject Trump in their March presidential caucus voting,” the paper wrote, referring to Trump’s third place finish behind Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich in the March 22 caucus there. “Were they to support Clinton now, even by the narrowest of pluralities, it would send a strong message to the Republican Party to turn their backs on Trumpism.”
Clinton’s outreach to Mormons is about more than just Utah, too. While Mormons make up 60% of votes in the Beehive State, they also make up sizable numbers in Nevada and Arizona, two other Western states that Clinton is hoping land in her column on November 8.
The Y2 Analytics poll was conducted October 10-11, and used responses from 500 likely Utah voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.

U.S. Attacks Over the Weekend; three attacks in 24 hours bring questions fear

Police: 8 injured in mall stabbing; suspect killed 

Eight people were injured in a stabbing attack at a mall in Minnesota Saturday night. Police say the suspect was shot and killed by an off-duty officer.
U.S. Attacks Over the Weekend
Three attacks in three states in 12 hours. It’s been two days now, and yet, we have so few answers – chief among them: What, exactly, were the motives? Authorities say the three attacks don’t appear linked.
New York: An explosive device planted near or in a Dumpster in the Chelsea neighborhood wounded 29 people Saturday night. A few blocks away, an intact pressure cooker was found. Video shows the same man planting the devices, both of which had cellphones as timers. But who is the man? And why are officials not calling this a terror attack? Security’s turned up to 10, not just because of the blast, but also because the U.N. General Assembly begins today.
New Jersey: Earlier Saturday, a pipe bomb-type device – again, with a cell phone as a timer — exploded in a garbage can before a Marine Corps charity run in Seaside Park. (Two others didn’t). Thankfully no one was hurt because registration problems had delayed the race. Then overnight, a backpack containing five improvised explosive devices was found at a train station in Elizabeth.
Minnesota: A man, wearing a security uniform, went on a stabbing spree at a mall in St. Cloud, injuring nine people before an off-duty cop shot him dead. ISIS praised the attacker as a “soldier of the Islamic state” — though there’s no immediate evidence he’d had contact with them.

24 turbulent hours for Donald Trump’s children

As the campaign enters its final stretch, some of Donald Trump’s children are showing signs of impatience and struggling to stay on message.

In the past 24 hours, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have cut off interviews when pressed for answers on tough questions. Trump Jr. strayed from the campaign’s talking point about the Republican nominee’s tax returns — that they’ll be released once an IRS audit concludes — when he said unveiling the documents would “detract” from his father’s message.

Do You Have A Right To See Donald Trump’s Taxes?

Donald Trump is saying that he will not release his tax returns. He would be the first Presidential candidate since 1976 to keep those private. In 2012 he criticized Mitt Romney, saying he delayed releasing them too late and that hurt him in the election. Hillary Clinton is already pondering what he might have to hide. Do you think you have a right to see a Presidential candidate’s tax returns? CNBC Senior Contributor Larry Kudlow joined John to talk about the kerfuffle over Trump’s taxes.
