WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to offer support to Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, saying the former state judge "totally denies" allegations that he sexually molested underage girls years ago. "He denies it," Trump told reporters at the White House. "He says it didn't happen and you have to listen to him, also." Trump criticized Moore's opponent, Democrat Doug Jones, as being "terrible on crime, terrible on borders." "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat," Trump added.
The Bavarian Bierhaus in suburban Milwaukee has a pretty strong NFL game-day special: No one pays for beer until the Packers score. With Aaron Rodgers leading the Packers' offense for most of the season, that hasn't meant all that much free beer. Over Green Bay's first nine games, the Packers scored in the first quarter six times. The worst hit for the Bierhaus came in Week 1, when Green Bay didn't score until about five minutes had elapsed in the third quarter against the Seahawks.
CBS said Tuesday that it has fired Charlie Rose "effective immediately," following an extensive Washington Post report that detailed alleged unwanted sexual advances toward women by the 75-year-old broadcaster.

Cranberries might be a staple on Thanksgiving tables, but a glut of U.S. supplies has gotten so large that fruit could be headed to the compost pile. Just as demand is hitting its seasonal peak, American processors are anxiously awaiting government approval that would allow them to turn excess fruit into fertilizer. The program would be the first of its kind for cranberries.
There's plenty of turkey for second helpings this Thanksgiving. Supplies will be plentiful after a recent production boom. Add that to stagnant U.S. demand and you've got the recipe for cheaper birds. According to an annual survey from the American Farm Bureau Federation, a 16-pound turkey will cost about 1.6 percent less than last year, and the whole meal will be the cheapest since 2013.
With its final meeting of the year less than a month away, the Federal Communications Commission is expected to reveal the latest details of a plan to roll back the government's net neutrality regulations this week.

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration has given nearly 60,000 Haitians with provisional legal residency in this country 18 months to leave, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed them to remain here for more than seven years.

President Donald Trump's announcement that he is delaying a decision on allowing elephant hunting trophies from Zimbabwe drew an angry reactions from hunting groups and reignited a heated debate over whether killing iconic animals is the best way to manage their shrinking populations. Last week, the Trump administration announced it would reverse a ban on trophy imports from Zimbabwe that had been imposed by the Obama administration. Two days later, however, Trump tweeted that elephant hunting is a "horror show" and suggested he would maintain the ban.
Our recent and overdue reckoning with sexual harassment and sexual assault have prompted some concerns. Will a wave of testimony lead to a prudish overcorrection? Will simple misunderstandings and single acts that are foolish but not violent lead men to be lumped in with predators when they don't deserve it?
