Leonardo DiCaprio says he prefers pupusas over tacos — and social media goes loco

Leonardo DiCaprio caused a stir on social media Saturday when he disclosed in an interview with the cast of “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” that he prefers pupusas over tacos.

The cast had been asked about their favorite kind of Mexican food. Brad Pitt went with tacos.

“I’m a pupusa man, myself,” DiCaprio said. “Better than tacos to me, I gotta go with them,” Remezcla reported.

Shark bites Arizona man, 49, boogie boarding off Florida’s Atlantic coast

An Arizona man visiting Florida was reportedly bitten on the right leg by a shark while boogie boarding south of Daytona Beach on Saturday afternoon.

William Angell, 49, suffered cuts to his right thigh from the attack off New Smyrna Beach around 4:30 p.m., FOX 10 of Phoenix reported. His injuries were not life-threatening and he reportedly drove himself to a medical center to be checked out.

Bernie Sanders blasted Baltimore as ‘Third World country’ and ‘disgrace’ in past comments

President Trump drew a torrent of criticism from Democrats on Saturday over a series of Twitter messages aimed at U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and the Baltimore district that Cummings represents in Congress.

But just a few years ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders — a candidate seeking the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination — took his own shots at Baltimore, a struggling Northeast city grappling with high rates of violent crime, drug abuse, poverty and political corruption.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a visit to the city’s West Baltimore section in December 2015, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

TRUMP DOUBLES DOWN ON CUMMINGS CRITICISM AS DEMS, BALTIMORE OFFICIALS DEFEND ‘HERO’ REP

The independent U.S. senator from Vermont also referred to Baltimore as “a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs.”

“We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable,” he added, according to the Sun.

Sanders was visiting the section of Baltimore where a 25-year-old black man named Freddie Gray was arrested earlier that year for allegedly possessing an illegal knife. Gray fell into a coma while in police custody and died a few days later, sparking a national outcry against members of the city’s police department.

But all six police officers who were suspended in connection with the death either had all charges against them dropped, or were acquitted.

ARRESTS ANNOUNCED IN GUNPOINT ROBBERY OF BALTIMORE DEPUTY POLICE COMMISSIONER, WIFE

In 2016, Sanders posted a Twitter message about Baltimore.

“Residents of Baltimore’s poorest boroughs have lifespans shorter than people living under dictatorship in North Korea,” Sanders wrote. “That is a disgrace.”

The bleak portrait Sanders painted back then seems little different from the one Trump presented Saturday, in which the president said the city that had become a monument to governmental failures.

In one message, Trump described Cummings’ district as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”

“If he spent more time in Baltimore,” the president added, “maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”

“Where is all this money going?” Trump asked later, referring to federal dollars sent to Baltimore over the years. “How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!”

Prominent Democrats – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California, who was born in Baltimore and whose father was a Baltimore mayor, and presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren – were quick to defend Cummings and fire back at Trump.

Also on Saturday, Sanders appeared to abandon his past critiques of Baltimore and focus instead on defending Cummings and bashing the president.

“Here’s what’s really going on,” Sanders wrote. “@RepCummings has been busy revealing the failures of the Trump administration and exposing the greed of Trump’s friends in the pharmaceutical industry, and our racist president doesn’t like it.”

Kevin McCarthy: House Democrats ‘only focused on impeachment,’ Nadler ‘has wasted time’

Westlake Legal Group AP19206618910969 Kevin McCarthy: House Democrats 'only focused on impeachment,' Nadler 'has wasted time' Louis Casiano fox-news/shows/justice-with-judge-jeanine fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/republicans fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/leadership fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/robert-mueller fox-news/person/kevin-mccarthy fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc de537912-b27f-5c97-9a0c-2637bba62495 article

Congressional Democrats have spent too much effort on bringing down President Trump while letting crucial issues like the humanitarian crisis at the southern border and trade fall by the wayside, House Minority Leader  Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told Fox News Saturday.

The House minority leader appeared on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and accused some of his Democratic colleagues of continuing to push for impeachment despite former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s testimony this week proving that the president did not commit a crime.

MUELLER ISSUES CLARIFICATION, TAKES BACK BOMBSHELL STATEMENT ABOUT INDICTING TRUMP

“They just celebrated 200 days in power,” McCarthy told host Jeanine Pirro of the Democratic majority in the House. “If you measure [the same amount of time] to the last Congress, we had passed more than 300 bills out of committee. They’re not even past 200 because they’ve only focused on impeachment and not solving the problem.”

McCarthy said Democrats should address critical issues such as the fledgling trade agreement between the U.S, Mexico and Canada, as well as the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border, which has seen an influx of migrants and continues to stretch Border Patrol resources.

DEMS LAUNCH ‘IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATION’ WITH BID FOR GRAND JURY INFO, INSIST MUELLER DELIVERED

McCarthy also took House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., to task over his claim Friday that the only reason Trump wasn’t indicted on a charge of obstruction of justice was because of a Justice Department opinion advising against charging a sitting president with a crime. Mueller himself corrected that statement during his testimony Wednesday, saying that “we did not reach a determination as to whether the President committed a crime.”

“He has wasted time while we have a big problem at the border. He’s held no hearings,” McCarthy said of Nadler. “And really with this Mueller report, at the end of the day, this chapter should be shut. We should move on and this is the end of it.”

Pirro and McCarthy then discussed divisions in the House Democratic caucus between moderates backed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez met Friday to discuss their disagreements, which have spilled into public view via social media in recent weeks.

“This week is a historical week,” McCarthy said. “We put the chapter away when it came to Mueller but it is the week that Nancy Pelosi surrendered to the socialists. They are all together now.”

Ocasio-Cortez and others have pushed to begin impeachment proceeds against Trump, while Pelosi has publically opposed those efforts.

Fox News reporter Lukas Mikelionis contributed to this report.

Hunt on for gunman after off-duty LAPD officer murdered

Westlake Legal Group LAPDDiaz720 Hunt on for gunman after off-duty LAPD officer murdered Samuel Chamberlain fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/us/us-regions/west fox-news/us/crime/police-and-law-enforcement fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox news fnc/us fnc cb5f8edb-86bc-5592-baf6-20807968c673 article

Authorities in Southern California were searching for a suspect after an off-duty Los Angeles police officer was shot and killed early Saturday.

Juan Jose Diaz, 24, had been with the LAPD for two years and was most recently assigned to the department’s Professional Standards Bureau.

“Officer Diaz was a dedicated public servant and Angeleno that put service to others above all else,” the department said on Twitter. “The void his loss leaves within our ranks will not soon be filled.”

The Associated Press, citing an official briefed on the investigation, reported that Diaz was out with his girlfriend and two other men at a taco stand in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles when he noticed man vandalizing something nearby and approached him. The man left, but returned a short time later returned with a group of other males and lifted up his shirt to display a handgun, the official said.

The official added that Diaz and the others tried to get into a car to avoid violence but the man started shooting.

SUSPECT IN LOS ANGELES SHOOTING SPREE THAT KILLED 3 CAUGHT AFTER MANHUNT

Assistant Police Chief Beatrice Girmala told reporters that a passerby flagged down an LAPD motorcycle officer shortly before 1 a.m. Other officers arrived at the scene and found Diaz and another man suffering from gunshot wounds. Diaz was pronounced dead at the scene, while the second man was hospitalized in unknown condition.

The official told the AP that police believe the gunman is a member of the Avenues gang, which is now the focus of the department’s investigation. It is not clear whether Diaz identified himself as a police officer during the initial confrontation with the suspect.

“I don’t believe there was any exchange of gunfire,” LAPD spokesperson Meghan Aguilar said. “He [Diaz] was targeted, he was murdered. And this was not a run and gun battle of any nature.”

“Our hearts break today as one of our officers was murdered while trying to enjoy an evening out with friends,” the Los Angeles Police Protective League said in a statement. “We mourn the loss of our brother and we will always remember his service and sacrifice to the Los Angeles Police Department and the residents of our city … We urge the Chief of Police to utilize every available Department resource to ensure the coward and his accomplices who are responsible for this heinous act are swiftly apprehended and brought to justice.”

Chief Michel Moore has asked for the public’s help finding the attacker. Anyone with knowledge of the gunman’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 or (877) 527-3247

“Words cannot match the depth of sorrow that Angelenos are feeling today,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement, adding: “Our hearts are with Officer Diaz’s family and friends. They are experiencing a loss that no one should have to suffer, under circumstances that outrage us all. My promise is that we will hold them close, stand with them every step of the way — and never tire until we find and prosecute the vicious criminals responsible for this horrific tragedy.”

Russi Taylor, longtime voice of Minnie Mouse, dies at 75

Russi Taylor, an actress who gave voice to Minnie Mouse for more than three decades, has died.

Walt Disney Co. chairman Bob Iger announced Taylor’s death in a statement Saturday. Taylor died Friday in Glendale, Calif., Disney said. She was 75. The cause was not immediately clear.

Taylor was married to the man who voiced Mickey Mouse opposite her, Wayne Allwine, from 1991 until his death in 2009.

A native of Cambridge, Mass., Taylor became the official voice of Minnie in 1986, beating out more than 200 competitors who auditioned. She voiced Minnie across Disney projects in film, television and theme parks, including the movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” and the TV show “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.”

“Minnie Mouse lost her voice with the passing of Russi Taylor,” Iger said. “For more than 30 years, Minnie and Russi worked together to entertain millions around the world — a partnership that made Minnie a global icon and Russi a Disney Legend.”

Bill Farmer, who voiced Goofy alongside Taylor, said in a statement that she was “as wonderful, funny, and sweet as Minnie Mouse, and as talented yet humble as you would expect.”

She also provided voices for many other minor Disney characters and for several smaller characters on “The Simpsons,” including Bart’s nerdy classmate Martin Prince.

“It was a privilege to have known her and an honor to have worked with her,” Iger said, “and we take comfort in the knowledge that her work will continue to entertain and inspire for generations to come.”

Chicago boy, 5, credited with saving 13 people from house fire

A 5-year-old boy is being credited with saving 13 people from a Chicago house fire early Saturday after he alerted others to the danger.

Jayden Espinosa awoke just before 4 a.m. to smoke and flames in the 2 1/2-story brick home in the Back of the Yards neighborhood and alerted those sleeping on the second floor to get up.

Jayden Espinosa (Fox 32 Chicago)

“I yelled to my auntie there was fire,” Espinosa told WGN-TV. “I said fire was coming in the kitchen.”

Jayden’s parents were at their home on the city’s Northwest Side, while Jayden and his sister were staying at the apartment with their aunt.

“My daughter got up to stand up and he’s like ‘no, you have to crouch and move,'” Jayden’s mom Tracey Espinosa told WGN. ” … I was thankful because I didn’t expect that of him, to be a hero, to save everyone’s life. He said ‘I saved everyone.'”

Seven adults and six children were displaced and were being assisted by the Red Cross, but officials say the fire would have been much more tragic if Jayden hadn’t realized the danger.

“I don’t think we would have survived,” said Jayden’s aunt, Nicole Peeples, who added that the home’s fire alarms never went off and she didn’t smell smoke.

“I’m so glad he was there,” she said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.

[Editor’s note: This story discusses suicide. If you or someone you know is having thoughts of suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).]

An off-duty New York City police officer was found dead Saturday afternoon of a suspected self-inflicted gunshot wound, a department spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.

The officer’s colleagues found him dead in his Staten Island home around 2 p.m., law enforcement sources said. They were concerned when he didn’t show up for work and had gone to check on him.

No additional information was released by the NYPD. The NYPD Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted that the officer was a sergeant, but did not give any other details

DAN BONGINO RIPS NYC MAYOR FOR COP-SOAKING INCIDENTS: ‘THIS IS YOUR FAULT, DE BLASIO’

The officer is the fifth member of the NYPD to commit suicide since early June.

New York Police Commissioner James O’Neill last month said the department had a “crisis” on its hands after three officers took their own lives over a 10-day period.

“Cops spend so much of their days assisting others. But before we can help the people we serve, it is imperative that we first help ourselves,” O’Neill said at the time. “Accepting help is never a sign of weakness — in fact, it’s a sign of great strength.”

According to Blue H.E.L.P., a non-profit organization that tracks law enforcement suicides, at least 106 police officers have killed themselves in 2019. The same organization recorded 167 verified officer suicides in 2018 and 169 in 2017.

“Cops spend so much of their days assisting others. But before we can help the people we serve, it is imperative that we first help ourselves,” O’Neill said at the time. “Accepting help is never a sign of weakness — in fact, it’s a sign of great strength.”
