>> Read more trending stories 

Biden addressed a crowd in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, while on a campaign stop for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Friday. Biden discussed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s vulgar comments from the 2005 “Access Hollywood” video that surfaced earlier this month and the recent sexual assault allegations against Trump.

“Press always ask me, ‘Don’t I wish I were debating him?’” Biden told the crowd. “No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym.”

“What he said and did and does is the textbook definition of sexual assault,” Biden bellowed. “He said because I am famous, because I am a star, because I am a billionaire, I can do things other people can’t. What a disgusting assertion for anyone to make.”

Earlier this month, Biden made an appearance on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” discussing Trump’s comments and behavior.

Bill Murray makes unexpected appearance at White House briefing

Bill Murray surprised guests at a White House briefing on Friday to discuss one very important subject — baseball.

After press secretary John Earnest gave his briefing, Murray graced the podium and addressed the audience about the Chicago Cubs, while wearing his Cubs gear.

When asked if the Cubs will win, the actor and comedian told reporters, “I feel very confident that Clayton Kershaw is a great, great pitcher, but we’ve got too many sticks.”

“We also have a little bit of autumn in Chicago. You don’t get that in Los Angles,” Murray went on to say. “Trees just die in Los Angeles. In Illinois, they flourish,” he said as the crowd laughed.

According to People, Murray was in Washington, D.C., on Sunday to receive the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. He also met with President Obama while at the White House.

The Chicago Cubs currently lead the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2. If the Cubs make it to the World Series, it will be the first time since 1945.

Man suing city after doughnut icing tests positive for meth during Florida traffic stop

Icing from a Krispy Kreme doughnut landed Dan Rushing in jail after Orlando police mistook it for methamphetamine, and as a result, Rushing is suing the city.

>> Read more trending stories

“They showed me four little pieces, smaller than your fingernail, of icing from a Krispy Kreme doughnut I'd eaten previously,” Rushing said.

The lawsuit Rushing filed on Friday is not only against the city of Orlando, it’s against Safariland, the company behind the test.

The arrest happened in July. Orlando police pulled Rushing over for speeding and searched his car.

When officers found dried icing in his car, they thought it was meth and arrested him.

“I get one glazed every other Wednesday,” said Rushing.                                                        

Orlando police said the icing tested positive twice for meth.

“I said 'That's icing from a Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut,' and they went, ‘No. That's drugs,’” said Rushing.

Rushing said that he insisted the substance was sugar.

“They took me to jail. I was there about 11 hours. (They) strip-searched me,” said Rushing.

Rushing said the amount of icing could barely fit on the nail of a pinky finger. He was surprised officers saw it, especially since it was in pieces scattered on the floor of his car.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement later tested the icing and found that it contained “no controlled substances.”

Prosecutors didn't pursue the drug charge.

The lawsuit claims the officer was not properly trained to use the test, and the product was defective or unreliable.

“It's an incredible feeling to get arrested when you haven't done anything wrong,” Rushing said.

WFTV legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said that Rushing might have an uphill battle in court because the officers still had cause to arrest him, even if the test was later proven wrong.

But Rushing hopes to force more scrutiny over the field tests.

He said he will still eat the doughnuts, but “just don't eat them in the car anymore.”

The city declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Safariland has not replied to WFTV's request for comment.

Florida couple gets into brawl, leads cops to marijuana grow house

A couple in Central Florida did not expect to lead police to their marijuana grow house after they got into a bloody argument Wednesday. 

Deputies responded to the home of Mark and Judy McKay to find blood on the front steps and throughout the house, Fox 13 News reports. 

During the fight, Mark McKay was allegedly stabbed in the neck and the forehead by his wife, police told Fox 13 News. Judy McKay claims her husband got drunk and became violent and hit her multiple times. 

When police went inside the house, they found marijuana plants and equipment used to cultivate the sale of cannabis, according to Fox 13 News. Police then discovered a shed in the back of the home that contained hundreds of marijuana plants. 

The couple was arrested on drug charges and taken to Polk County Jail. 


In the digital age, pediatricians tweak screen time rules

The American Academy of Pediatrics has some bad news for parents relying on the television or computer to babysit their kids: two hours of screen time may be too much.

>> Read more trending stories 

CNN reports that group is  tweaking outdated screen time rules in the age of 24/7 digital media – but it won’t be easy.

“It doesn’t make sense to make a blanket statement [of two hours] of screen time anymore,” said Dr. Yolanda Reid Chassiakos, lead author of the “Children and Adolescents and Digital Media Technical Report” and assistant professor at UCLA.

There is nothing cute about the toddler at the table next to you playing with mommy’s cellphone.

Babies under 18 months should be kept from all digital devices, the researcher said. “The TV should not be a babysitter,” she said. “It’s much better to talk to a child or read from a book.”

Children 2 to 5 years of age should be limited to one hour a day and older children should have defined restrictions by their parents on screen time, Chassiakos added.

For healthy kids, an average day includes “school, homework time, at least one hour of physical activity, social contact and sleep — which is anywhere from eight to 12 hours for kids, said Chassiakos.

“Whatever’s left over can be screen time,” she said.

Report: Facebook employees argued to ban Trump posts as hate speech

Some of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's Facebook posts sparked a heated debate among employees over whether his comments constitute hate speech and violate the site's terms of use, according to a report published Friday by The Wall Street Journal.

>> Read more trending stories

Citing unnamed sources familiar with the situation, the newspaper reported that complaints centered around "certain posts about banning Muslims from entering the U.S." The debate was officially settled in December, when Facebook CEO determined that censoring Trump would be "inappropriate."

"That decision has prompted employees across the company to complain on Facebook's internal messaging service and in person to Mr. Zuckerberg and other managers that it was bending the site's rules for Mr. Trump, and some employees who work in a group charged with reviewing content on Facebook threatened to quit," according to The Wall Street Journal.

The social network announced in a news release Friday that it would be slackening some of its community standards in order to allow people to post and share newsworthy but controversial subjects.

"In the weeks ahead, we're going to begin allowing more items that people find newsworthy, significant or important to the public interest – even if they might otherwise violate our standards," the statement said. "We will work with our community and partners to explore exactly how to do this through new tools and approaches to enforcement."

The company said it is focused on allowing users to share more controversial stories while still protecting minors and others from seeing graphic, inappropriate content. Facebook said it would do so with input from experts, law enforcement officials and others.

According to a study published in May 2016 by the Pew Research Center, about 62 percent of adults in America get their news from social media. Facebook is widely regarded as the most popular site. About 44 percent of Americans get their news from the social media site, according to Pew.

20-year-old woman to sell her virginity for money, 'love'

A 20-year-old woman from Seattle is looking for love and a little cash as she sells her virginity in order to help her family pay off debt. 

>> Read more trending stories 

Katherine Stone, 20, told CNN that her family lost their home to a fire in 2014, and due to a lack of insurance, were forced to stay on the property. She then came across an ad for a legal brothel in Nevada and hatched the plan to sell her virginity to the highest bidder. 

“It made me think, 'Wow, it's a chance at fixing all that I need to fix,’” she told CNN. 

Stone contacted Dennis Hof, owner of seven brothels in Nevada, and signed a contract to sell her virginity to the highest bidder and get half of the proceeds, CNN reports. As of Thursday, the highest bid was $400,000, but Stone hasn’t planned to accept one yet and hopes a connection can be made with the man she chooses. 

"I'm waiting for a man who I feel a connection with so that the experience can be special for both of us," she told CNN. "It's really not just about the money." 

While many people have criticized Stone’s decision, she told CNN that she is aware of the backlash and believes in her right to choose what to do with her own body. “I obviously value myself. ... I have the right to choose what I do with my body,” she said. “And in this troubling economy, do you blame me?” 

CNN reported that Stone plans to stay at the brothel for “several years” after losing her virginity and move on to law school in the future.

Couple finds nearly $10k in shopping cart, returns it

A couple in New York found an unexpected amount of cash in their shopping cart when they arrived at the store on Monday morning, but returned the money to its frantic owner.

>> Read more trending stories

The Auburn Citizen reported Thursday that the couple found $9,800 with stacks of $100, $50 and $20 in the shopping cart at some point between 8 and 9 a.m. on Monday when they arrived at the Tractor Supply Co. in Sennett. They left the money untouched and returned it to the store manager, Jeff Weltch, who received a call from the cash's owner, a restaurateur in the area.

The woman said she had been at the store at 5:30 p.m. the day before and had brought the money, which was made up of cash receipts from the restaurant, inside because her dogs were in her car and she was afraid to leave it, the Auburn Citizen reported.

She said she "must have gotten distracted" and left the cash after one of the dogs urinated on the driver's seat and diverted her attention.

After making sure the woman was telling the truth about the cash, Weltch returned the money to her and declined the reward. He said the couple who found the cash declined to be identified and the woman offered them dinner at her restaurant.

"The people in that store are, without a doubt, the nicest, most kind people," she told the Auburn Citizen. "They were so concerned about me and they were elated that I got the money back."

'Miracle' baby born twice

A "miracle" baby who survived two births after doctors found a rare and large tumor growing in her has beat tough odds.

>> Read more trending stories

Doctors told Margaret Boemer and her husband, Jeff, that their baby girl, Lynlee Hope, had what's called a sacrococcygeal teratoma when Margaret Boemer went in for her 16-week check-up. The tumor, which is rare, grows at the base of the tailbone and can get large, although they're rarely malignant.

The family detailed their daughter's story in a GoFundMe page set up to help with their medical expenses.

After learning about their daughter's tumor, the couple met with two doctors to figure out their next steps. One doctor warned Margaret Boemer that it would be in her best interests to terminate the pregnancy, because of the "extremely large size of our baby's tumor and the risks to my health," she said.

However, doctors at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston told the Boemers that she had another option: open fetal surgery.

"They told us she had a 50 (percent) chance of making it with the surgery," Margaret Boemer said. "Jeff and I were in agreement that termination was not an option and we wanted to give Lynlee a chance at life by going with Texas Children's and having open fetal surgery."

When Margaret Boemer reached 23 weeks of pregnancy, doctors realized that Lynlee's tumor was growing.

"(It) was taking the majority of her blood supply and causing her to go into cardiac failure," Margaret Boemer said. The mother was rushed into surgery to save Lynlee.

Surgeons removed her uterus, cut through to Lynlee and managed to remove 90 percent of the tumor.

"It was a shock to Lynlee's system, so they did have to help restart her heart and give her a blood transfusion," Margaret Boemer said. "Once she was stable, they put her back in and sewed up my uterus and abdomen. Then it became a wait-and-see game."

Margaret Boemer was ordered to bed rest as she and her baby recovered.

Lynlee Hope was born June 6. According to KPRC, her tailbone was removed to prevent the regrowth of her tumor. It was not immediately clear whether the surgery would impact her ability to sit or stand.

"Through this entire experience, we have trusted in God to get us through each day," Margaret Boemer said.
