A high-profile weekend anchor at KTLA was notably absent from the air Saturday and Sunday after the New York Daily News featured an excerpt from her new book that claims that prior to becoming the president, Donald Trump once propositioned her.
Former Fox News reporter Courtney Friel was scheduled for a vacation around her book tour beginning Monday, her publicist told TheWrap, but she did not appear for any of her regular weekend shifts on Saturday or Sunday.
She added, according to the Daily News, that she hung up after reminding him they were both married. At the time, the real estate mogul and reality TV star was married to his current wife, Melania Trump. A reporter for People magazine has also claimed Trump came onto her while he was married to the now-first lady, a charge he has denied. It infuriated me that he would call all the women who shared stories of his bold advances liars.
I totally believe them. Several women have accused Donald Trump of lewd behavior since the Washington Post reported that he bragged to Billy Bush on a hot mic in that he kisses and gropes women. Trump has called the comments "locker room talk" and denied assaulting women. Trump denies it. Trump bragged to Howard Stern that as a pageant owner, he can " sort of get away" with walking in on women : "You know, I'm inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. Jill Harth sued Trump inalleging sexual harassment.
Some girls were topless. Other girls were naked. When the tape was released, she said she wasn't especially surprised -- "not with that type of personality. After shoving the hand away, she fled the couch and turned to take her first good look at the man who had touched her: It was Trump. The Trump campaign is demanding that the New York Times retract its story detailing the allegations from Leeds and Crooks. His campaign denies it ever happened. Already a member?

Oh, that's a shame," Trump quipped to reporters on the heels of the announcement of Smith's exit. Smith had said on the air that it was "repugnant" that Carlson had not spoken up in defense of Fox News contributor Andrew Napolitano after a Carlson guest, attorney Joseph di Genova, called Napolitano a "fool" for saying that Trump had broken the law.
Di Genova is a legal advisor to Trump. Fox News denied that Smith was warned about his criticism of Carlson. Smith also has been criticized repeatedly by Trump — as recently as Thursday — after not lavishing praise on the president, as a number of other hosts on the network routinely do.
The opportunities afforded this guy from small town Mississippi have been many," Smith said. I've worked with the most talented, dedicated and focused professionals I know and I'm proud to have anchored their work each day — I will deeply miss them.
Smith said on air that "under our agreement" with Fox News "I won't be reporting elsewhere, at least not in the near future. Wallace said in his own statement, "Shep is one of the premier newscasters of his generation and his extraordinary body of work is among the finest journalism in the industry.

In second place in that poll was Laura Ingraham, another Trump-supporting anchor with an evening show. Sign up for free newsletters and get more CNBC delivered to your inbox. Get this delivered to your inbox, and more info about our products and services.

Unlike the flu, there is no known treatment or vaccine, and little is known about this particular virus so far. It seems to be more lethal than the flu, but the numbers are still uncertain.
And it hits the elderly and those with underlying conditions — not just those with respiratory diseases — particularly hard. If masks are available, both the sick person and the caregiver should wear them when the caregiver enters the room. Make sure not to share any dishes or other household items and to regularly clean surfaces like counters, doorknobs, toilets and tables.
