(CNN)A new campaign ad comparing Donald Trump to Hugo Chavez isn't sitting well with Venezuela's government. Read this story in Spanish at CNNEspanol.com The Democratic National Committee posted a video online this week claiming the Republican presidential nominee's recent remarks have a lot in common with fiery speeches from the late Venezuelan leader. Trump's campaign and a DNC spokesman did not immediately respond to a request Thursday for comment.

Washington (CNN)The Twitterverse was aflame in the hours after Wednesday night's debate with questions about whether or not Hillary Clinton divulged classified information about the country's nuclear arsenal. "There's about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so," Clinton said, explaining the quick decision-making required of a commander in chief and questioning Donald Trump's fitness for the job.

(CNN)Having quietly invaded America via DirecTV and then Netflix, "Black Mirror" appears destined for a coming-out party with a new batch of episodes premiering on the latter. The provocative, technology-focused anthology returns with most of its charms intact, an R-rated "The Twilight Zone" spun forward into the digital age. The six new installments arriving (one of which runs a movie-length 90-minutes), representing half of Netflix's order, feature some modest upgrades, and even a few casting coups indicative of the show's cachet. That includes Bryce Dallas Howard as a woman living in a status-obsessed, "Stepford Wives"-like society, where privileges and access [...]

Miami (CNN)President Barack Obama admonished Donald Trump Thursday, saying the Republican nominee's claims that he might not accept the results of next month's election are "not a joking matter." "I want everybody to pay attention here. This is dangerous," Obama said at a Hillary for America event in Miami Gardens, Florida.
(CNN)Margaret Boemer went for a routine ultrasound 16 weeks into her pregnancy with her third child. She quickly found out that things were far from routine. "They saw something on the scan, and the doctor came in and told us that there was something seriously wrong with our baby and that she had a sacrococcygeal teratoma," the Plano, Texas, mom said in an interview shared by Texas Children's Hospital. "And it was very shocking and scary, because we didn't know what that long word meant or what diagnosis that would bring." "We don't want the mom's health to be jeopardized," [...]
Previous Next Gumbo is probably the most versatile dish out there; no other dish can be so easily modified for every type of wild game. At its most basic. there are are peppers, onion, and celery with a dark nutty roux. After that you can pretty much add whatever you want to it. When you mix you flour and oil and heat it up it will start out like a thick paste. That paste then turns into a light blonde, slightly less thick paste. If all you want to do is thicken stock to make a gravy or soup base, [...]

(CNN)More notable for the stealth with which it was produced than its content, "Michael Moore in TrumpLand" is less a movie than a filmed concert by someone who is more accomplished as a showman than a stage performer. A mere 72 minutes, the film opens with snippets of comments from Donald Trump supporters in Wilmington, Ohio, where Moore appeared in a theater with the words "Trump Voters Welcome" plastered across the marquee. "He didn't get it handed down to him like Hillary did from her parents," one Trump backer says. Moore begins the conversation in conciliatory fashion, saying he welcomes [...]
(CNN)Calling all white male supporters of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump: Filmmaker Michael Moore feels your pain. He understands the logic and feelings that underwrite your choice But he wants you to vote for Trump's Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, anyway, even if you have to hold your noses and force your hands to check that box. For the good of the country, "sometimes we have to take some medicine," Moore says in his documentary "Michael Moore in Trumpland," after clarifying that he has never before voted for a Clinton. "You will know what to do." Part therapy session, part political [...]
(CNN)The New York Police Department "failed" when an officer killed a 66-year-old mentally ill woman who attacked him with a baseball bat in a Bronx apartment, police Commissioner James O'Neill said Wednesday. "We do have policies and procedures for handling emotionally disturbed people, and it looks like that some of those procedures weren't followed," O'Neill said during a speech to the Citizens Crime Commission in Manhattan. "What is clear in this one instance is we failed."
(CNN)Movie remakes can follow two paths: Re-imagination, or replication. Despite being billed as the former, Fox wisely pursues the latter route with "The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again," an energetic redo of the 1975 musical, which starts well and perhaps inevitably peters out long before it's over. Purists are within their rights to ask why Fox would bother tampering with happy memories of that strange visitor from Transexual, Transylvania, but in Hollywood terms, nearly two generations is a respectable time-lapse before raiding the vaults. As for whether director Kenny Ortega -- a veteran of everything [...]
(CNN)Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice responded Tuesday to a resurfaced report from 2006 that Donald Trump called her a "bitch" in a speech, telling CNN's KFile in an email that she "can't wait until November 9!" "Condoleezza Rice, she's a lovely woman, but I think she's a bitch," Trump said in a speech at the Learning Annex in 2006, according to a story in the New York Daily News covering the event. "She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens."
(CNN)Iranian-Americans Baquer Namazi and his son Siamak have been sentenced to 10 years in prison and fined $4.8 million, according to Iran's official news channel IRINN.

Washington (CNN)On Monday night, Mario Batali was sitting awake at his hotel in Washington worrying about cold pasta. The famed Italian-American chef, tapped by the White House to craft a menu for President Barack Obama's final state dinner on Tuesday, likes his food hot. The logistics of carting at least 400 plates of sweet potato agnolotti with butter and sage from the White House kitchen to a massive tent 200 yards away was, in Batali's telling, a slight concern.

(LAPD) The Tesla Model S is getting a new badgefrom the LAPD.

Brunswick, Georgia (CNN)A 17-year-old-girl testified Monday that she and Justin Ross Harris, the Georgia man charged with murder in his son's death in a hot car, exchanged pictures of their private parts weeks before the boy died, and Harris wanted her to perform sexual acts on him upon learning she was underage. "He told me he wanted me to make him a naughty old man, or something along those lines," the teenager, who was 15 when she said she messaged with Harris on May 29, 2014, said in a Brunswick, Georgia, courtroom.
Washington (CNN)Donald Trump wants to hit the ground running with Russia. The Republican nominee said in an interview Monday that he might meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin before he even makes it into the White House.
(CNN)Routine contact with plastic bottles, toys, food cans, cosmetics and flame retardants containing "endocrine-disrupting chemicals" results in ingestion, leading to a toxic buildup and potentially a variety of medical conditions. Routine exposure to these chemicals adds up to annual costs in excess of $340 billion -- a whopping price tag that comes in the form of poor health, increased medical bills and lost income, according to researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center. The June reboot, known as the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act, means "the Environmental Protection Agency is on a fast timeline to deal with the requirements associated [...]
(CNN)After spending 14 years in Guantanamo Bay, the first inmate to publish an account of his time in the US detention center has been released. Mohamedou Slahi was sent home Monday to his native Mauritania, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which led the campaign for his release.
(CNN)It wasn't supposed to be this way, at least not for Donald Trump. Trump was always unlikely to win the female vote outright. After all, since the 1980s, Democratic candidates have consistently secured the support of more women than their Republican rivals. But his team no doubt hoped they could put enough of a dent in Clinton's support with female voters -- and expand the Republican advantage with college-educated white women -- to put the White House within reach. Clearly, security moms are rising up, and that's because their concerns are increasingly not just about national security, but personal security, [...]
(CNN)No one can speak for Donald Trump -- not even his running mate, Mike Pence. Trump undercut Pence on foreign policy in the middle of a presidential debate. The two members of the GOP ticket aren't on the same page on the concerns Trump is fueling about the election being "rigged." They point fingers in different directions on WikiLeaks. "I think there's more and more evidence that implicates Russia," the Indiana governor said on NBC's "Meet the Press." The most glaring example of the differences between the two comes on the message that Trump has most focused on driving in [...]
