Trump slams ‘The Squad’; Outrage over supporters’ ‘Send her back!’ chants

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your day…

Trump takes aim at ‘The Squad’ as supporters chant, ‘Send her back!’
President Trump, at a fiery “Make America Great Again” campaign rally Wednesday night in Greenville, N.C., blasted far-left Democratic Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts as his feud with the four members of “The Squad” showed no signs of dying down. As many supporters chanted, “Send her back!,” Trump took aim at Omar, saying she “smeared U.S. service members in ‘Black Hawk Down.’ She slandered the brave Americans trying to keep peace in Somalia,” a dig at her Somali-American heritage. The president also said Omar blamed America for the economic crisis in Venezuela and refused to condemn Al Qaeda.

The “Send her back!” chants referred to Trump’s tweet on Sunday in which the president asked why “Democrat Congresswomen” don’t “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came, then come back and show us how it is done.” Omar responded to the chants Wednesday by quoting iconic poet Maya Angelou on Twitter. 2020 Democrat presidential candidates Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand slammed Trump and accused him of stoking racism and xenophobia.

Democrat’s revived push to impeach Trump killed by Dem-controlled House
The House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to set aside a resolution by Rep. Al Green, D-Texas, to introduce article of impeachment against President Trump – the third time the Houston-area lawmaker has taken a shot at impeaching the president, but the first since Democrats regained control of the House. Lawmakers voted 332-95 to table Green’s resolution, which was widely opposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other top Democrats worried that the measure would force vulnerable swing-district lawmakers into peril ahead of the 2020 elections. The bipartisan vote shelved any chance of bringing forth articles of impeachment against Trump in the near future.

House Democrats vote to hold Barr, Ross in criminal contempt over citizenship census question
The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives on Wednesday voted to hold Attorney General Bill Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in criminal contempt, saying they were stonewalling congressional probes into the Trump administration’s efforts to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The vote to hold Barr and Ross in contempt was 230-198, with four Democrats and all Republicans voting no. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, now an independent after leaving the Republican Party, voted yes. Ross issued a statement immediately after the vote, charging that House Democrats were engaging in a “PR stunt” and “political games.”

Jon Stewart slams two Republican senators for delaying vote on 9/11 compensation fund
Comedian and activist Jon Stewart blasted two Republican senators for delaying a vote on reauthorizing the 9/11 victims compensation fund as a first responder-turned-activist claimed they “lack humanity.” Citing the national debt, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., derailed the attempt by Democrats on Wednesday to fast-track an extension to the compensation fund for 9/11 victims. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, placed a procedural hold on the legislation. Despite the roadblock, the reauthorization bill will eventually pass the Senate, Stewart predicted. “It’s absolutely outrageous, and you’ll pardon me if I’m not impressed in any way by Rand Paul’s fiscal responsibility virtue signaling,” he said in an interview on “Special Report” on Wednesday.

Thousands demand Puerto Rico governor’s resignation
Thousands gathered Wednesday in San Juan to demand the resignation of Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló over the leak of online chats that show him making misogynistic slurs and mocking his constituents. Wednesday’s mass demonstration was the second this week against the embattled leader. Waving Puerto Rican flags — some in black and gray to signal their discontent with the government — and chanting demands that Rosselló step down, demonstrators of every age group said they were fed up with the corruption of elected officials. The crowd included “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, pop star Ricky Martin and reggaeton artists Benito Martinez Ocasio — known as “Bad Bunny” — and Residente.)

Will Omar and Tlaib get OK to visit Israel? It may be all up to Netanyahu

U.S. Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib want to visit Israel — but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will likely have the final say on whether the far-left “Squad” members may enter Jewish state.

Both Omar and Tlaib have previously announced a trip to Israel and Palestinian-controlled territories, but their plans have been mired in a series of controversies including their support for the anti-Israel BDS movement and charges that the U.S. congresswomen hold anti-Semitic views.

Meanwhile, Israeli law permits authorities to deny entry to any people who support a boycott of the Jewish state — which both U.S. lawmakers have done.

Omar told Jewish Insider that she expects to travel to Israel and other territories “in a couple of weeks,” adding, “But truly, everything that I hear points to both sides feeling like there is still an occupation.”

According to Haaretz, the congresswomen may be allowed to enter if the Foreign Ministry recommends that the Strategic Affairs and Interior ministries issue a waiver for them on the basis that they are political figures and denying them the entry would negatively affect Israel’s foreign relations.

But due to the sensitivity of the issue, it will come down to Netanyahu, who enjoys a stellar relationship with President Trump, to decide whether to allow the congresswoman into the country, the newspaper reported.

Omar first came under fire after she tweeted in 2012 that Israel had “hypnotized the world” to carry out “evil.”

This year, she suggested U.S. politicians support Israel due to financial support, echoing the anti-Semitic trope of Jewish or Israeli influence on politics, and later claimed that those lawmakers who support Israel “push for allegiance to a foreign country.”

Tlaib, meanwhile, has been seen socializing with anti-Israel activists following her election victory and has come out against the two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, supporting instead a single-state solution.

She also came under fire in May after saying that the Holocaust gave her “kind of a calming feeling” in part because in its aftermath, the Palestinians helped create “a safe haven for Jews.”

“There’s always kind of a calming feeling, I tell folks, when I think of the Holocaust, and the tragedy of the Holocaust, and the fact that it was my ancestors — Palestinians — who lost their land and some lost their lives, their livelihood, their human dignity, their existence in many ways, have been wiped out, and some people’s passports,” Tlaib said during an appearance on the Yahoo News podcast “Skullduggery.”

“And, just all of it was in the name of trying to create a safe haven for Jews, post-the Holocaust, post-the tragedy and the horrific persecution of Jews across the world at that time. And, I love the fact that it was my ancestors that provided that, right, in many ways, but they did it in a way that took their human dignity away and it was forced on them.”

Bernie Sanders says his $40 trillion Medicare-for-all plan would help US save money

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6060499893001_6060500525001-vs Bernie Sanders says his $40 trillion Medicare-for-all plan would help US save money fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/health/healthy-living/health-care fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 638e7189-e67a-5576-9ac8-6b245bf4a2d5

Sen. Bernie Sanders put a number on his Medicare-for-all plan this week, saying his proposed successor to ObamaCare would likely cost between $30 trillion and $40 trillion over 10 years.

The presidential candidate also dismissed criticisms of his plan’s feasibility as “absurd,” claiming it would actually help the U.S. save money, he told The Washington Post.

“What the most serious economists tell us, that if we do nothing to fundamentally change the health care system, which is what Joe [Biden] was talking about, keeping it as it is, we’ll be spending something like $50 trillion over a 10-year period,” he told The Post. “Times change, and we have got to go further.”

SANDERS DEFENDS ‘MEDICARE-FOR-ALL,’ PLANS CANADA CARAVAN WITH PATIENTS TO BUY CHEAPER MEDS

Former Vice President Joe Biden called Sanders’ plan “risky” and said it could hurt patients. Biden released a plan this week to expand the Obama-era Affordable Care Act with a public option, which he estimates would cost around $750 billion over 10 years, the Post reported.

In a speech Wednesday at George Washington University, Sanders said it is an “international embarrassment” that the U.S. doesn’t guarantee health care as a right.

He said under his plan patients would still be able to see their doctors but won’t have to “deal with rip-off insurance companies.”

Seema Verma, administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, told Fox News earlier this year that Medicare-for-all would lead to longer wait times and inferior care.

“What we’re talking about is stripping people of their private health insurance, forcing them into a government-run program,” Verma said.

Sanders has admitted that taxes would go up under his plan.

Miley Cyrus posted a video of herself to Twitter early Thursday morning that proves she’s back to her twerking antics.

The latest post followed a week of participating in viral trends — including sharing an old photo of herself and agreeing to “see them aliens” at Area 51.

“isn’t this everyone @ home alone on a Wednesday evening?” the pop star wrote on a video shared with her  43.2 million Twitter followers. The brief clip shows Cyrus twerking, first standing up and then on the floor, along to the song “Shake That” by Megan Thee Stallion.

MILEY CYRUS SAYS SHE WAS DONE WITH HANNAH MONTANA ROLE AFTER LOSING VIRGINITY: ‘I CAN’T PUT THE F—ING WIG ON AGAIN’

Cyrus famously debuted her twerking skillset during her appearance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards when she stole the show in a latex bra and foam finger as she twerked on Robin Thicke as he sang his hit single, “Blurred Lines.”

On Wednesday, Cyrus tweeted an aged version of herself, presumably using the now-viral FaceApp’s old age filter. Celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Drake, the Jonas Brothers and Carrie Underwood have used the app to post their aged faces online using the #faceappchallenge tag.

Following another viral trend, Cyrus posted several photos of herself referencing the “Storm Area 51” movement. More than a million Facebook users responded to a page calling for a public invasion of the secret Air Force-run facility near Groom Lake, Nev., on Sept. 20 at 3 a.m. The facility has been the subject of alien conspiracy theories for decades.

On Tuesday, the 26-year-old former Disney star posted a throwback photo from her “Hannah Montana” days alongside co-star Selena Gomez. “Me & @selenagomez on our way to Area 51 👽,” she wrote.

That same day Cyrus also shared a photo of herself in a taco costume alongside someone in a green alien suit. “That one time @ Area 51,” she wrote. In pure eccentric Miley fashion, she shared a photo of herself making out with what looks like a giant baby head. “I’m a bad influence even to the aliens #Area51,” she wrote.

Cosmetic surgeons’ billboard sparks debate over body shaming

A Philadelphia billboard featuring a scantily clad woman has sparked outcry this week for what some residents regarded as body shaming.

The billboard, which says “Keeping Our Beaches Beautiful,” is an ad for the cosmetic surgery firm Gabay & Gottlieb. But some critics have asserted that the billboard implies non-“beautiful” people don’t belong on the beach.

Some people voiced their complaints to Philadelphia’s WPVI-TV.

BEBE REXHA IS NOT STANDING FOR YOUR BODY-SHAMING ON SOCIAL MEDIA

“Body shaming is disgusting,” one spectator reportedly wrote. “Keep our city beautiful, take down your billboard.”

Others told the station the billboard sent a negative message to young women.

Dr. Neil Gottlieb told the station that the ad was meant to be light-hearted and never intended to offend anyone.

He noted that the billboard had been put up a few times over the past year but hadn’t sparked any backlash.

DNA from cigarette butts links man to 12-year-old’s kidnapping, sexual assault: prosecutors

A Connecticut man was arrested Wednesday in connection with the May kidnapping and sexual assault of a Massachusetts 12-year-old after investigators used DNA from discarded cigarette butts to tie him to the case, prosecutors said.

LAPD OFFICER LINKED TO TWO SEPARATE RAPE CASES BY DNA ‘COLD MATCH’: POLICE

Joshua Besaw, 35, of Thompson, Conn., faces several federal charges, including kidnapping and transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity, Connecticut’s U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. He was arrested Wednesday after police worked for almost two months to identify a suspect.

Besaw allegedly lured a 12-year-old girl off her bicycle and into his car at a park in Webster, Mass., on May 31. Court documents said Besaw told the girl his name was Chuck and he needed help because his girlfriend’s parents hated him, Western Mass News reported.

The man then transported the girl over state lines into Connecticut where he pulled over in a wooded area and sexually assaulted her, the Webster Police Department said. He eventually dropped the girl off in Dudley, Mass. where she ran to a resident’s home and called her mother.

Police asked the public on Facebook in June to help officials identify a suspect in the case. Investigators obtained surveillance video from several homes and businesses that lead them to Besaw. On July 10, investigators picked up cigarette butts that they witnessed Besaw throw away. The DNA on the cigarette butts matched DNA extracted from the victim on May 31, police and prosecutors said.

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, stood by her fierce confrontation with former Vice President Joe Biden at the first Democratic debate on Wednesday night, insisting “we need to always remember our history.”

During her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” host Jimmy Kimmel noted the “big boost” Harris received following the NBC debate.

“I think you broke two of Joe Bidens ribs at that debate, were you aware of that?” Kimmel joked.

Kimmel then asked if she had “any regret going in so hard” on Biden, the California senator explained her stance as to why she went after him.

“You know, I felt strongly that we needed to have a full discussion about that era in our country,” Harris responded, “and it was a discussion that had been occuring for probably about two weeks before the debate and I felt the need to be sure that we are reflecting true history as it relates to integration of the schools and the need to force integration because there were so many states that were adamant against allowing the children of all races to be educated together.”

Harris went on to say that “so many people” since the debate had approached her in a whispering tone, telling her that they were bussed as children.

“It’s something that it has not been the subject of much discussion in the last, you know, few decades, but it is something that impacted millions of people in our country,” Harris continued. “And I think it’s an important reminder that we have to always remember our history and the last chapter if we’re going to accurately and correctly write the next chapter.”

When asked if she was concerned that her 2020 rivals will resort to “cannibalizing” each other before facing off against President Trump in the general election, Harris expressed that the debates should be “about the issues” and “not personal attacks.”

Harris received lots of praise for her debate peformance and made plenty of headlines with her confrontation with the Democratic frontrunner. She did, however, face criticism of her own for shifting her position on busing, suggesting it shouldn’t be federally mandated but that it be considered by the states.
