‘Miracle on Hudson' pilot slams Lara Trump for mocking Biden's stutter
Chesley ‘Sully' Sullenberger tells president's daughter-in-law to ‘grow up' and ‘show some decency' in New York Times columnChesley Sullenberger, the pilot who performed the "Miracle on the Hudson", has told Donald Trump's daughter-in-law Lara Trump to "grow up" and "show some decency", after she mocked Joe Biden for stuttering.Biden, a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination to face President Trump in November, has spoken openly about his lifelong experiences with a stutter.Lara Trump, who is married to the president's second son Eric, works for the Trump re-election campaign and spoke in that capacity at an event in Iowa on Friday, the day after the seventh Democratic debate."I feel kind of sad for Biden," she said. "And you know that's when it's not going well for him, right, because I'm supposed to want him to fail at every turn. But every time he comes onstage or they turn to him, I'm like, ‘Joe, can you get it out? Let's get the words out, Joe.'"Trump is not the first prominent supporter of her father-in-law to face criticism for mocking Biden's stutter: Fox News has aired montages of his stuttering on the debate stage and former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders deleted a mocking tweet in December.Nonetheless, on Friday Trump criticised reporting of her remarks and insisted in a tweet that "anyone who takes 10 seconds to watch what I actually said can clearly see that I never mention a stutter - didn't even know he had one". Here's @LaraLeaTrump at Trump event in Iowa mocking Bi

Africa's richest woman accused of corruption and siphoning off state assets
Africa's richest woman has been accused of corruption and exploiting her own country's natural resources, after thousands of documents detailing her business interests were leaked to the media. Isabel dos Santos, who resides in the UK and whose father was the president of Angola, faces allegations of exploiting family connections to secure deals on land, oil and diamonds. According to the documents, seen by BBC Panorama and the Guardian, she and her husband were allowed to buy up valuable state assets and siphon hundreds of millions of dollars out of Angola. Ms dos Santos, whose fortune is estimated at £2bn, says these claims are entirely false and that she is the victim of a witch-hunt led by the Angolan government. She  also wrote on Twitter that the leaked documents were "fake" and based on "false information."     Ms dos Santos is already under investigation for corruption by the Angolan government, which has frozen her assets in the country. The documents were obtained by the Platform to Protect Whistle-blowers in Africa and then passed to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. Anti-corruption campaigners responded by claiming that Ms dos Santos has been exploiting her own country for personal gain, with normal Angolan citizens the victims of her lavish lifestyle. "Every time she appears on the cover of some glossy magazine somewhere in the world, every time that she hosts one of her glamorous parties in the south of France, she is doing so by tramplin

Argentines remember prosecutor killed while probing attack on Jews
Argentines paid tribute Saturday to a prosecutor on the fifth anniversary of his unsolved death while probing the bombing of a Jewish community center -- an attack in which he alleged a presidential cover-up to shield Iran in exchange for trade. Prosecutor Alberto Nisman led the probe of the 1994 bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association headquarters, which left 85 dead and 300 wounded. In 2015, his body was found in his Buenos Aires apartment with a gunshot wound to the head, delivered at close range from a handgun found at his side.

Joe Scarborough: GOP Won't Come on ‘Morning Joe' to Talk Debt Unless ‘Democrats Are in the White House'
During a Monday conversation on "Morning Joe" with former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and other market experts, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough complained that Republican officials are inconsistent with concerns about national finances."You know," Scarborough said, "it used to be that I could get Republicans on this show to also talk about  massive spending … again ginning up the economy, overheating the economy, the $23 trillion national debt."Republicans, they only seem to care about deficits or debts when Democrats are in the White House, but man, we're looking at bigger spending and more fiscal recklessness than ever before this year," he added.Also Read: Joe Scarborough Tells GOP to 'Speak Up Now' After Trump Attacks Elijah Cummings and Baltimore (Video)Libertarian party chairman Nicholas Sarwark agreed, saying, "Absolutely.

In July, he addressed the party directly: "I'm getting really tired of having to tell you this and please, please, please, don't write your books about ‘how I won the war' after Donald Trump leaves town.
