Donald Trump launched a tweetstorm early Friday morning, renewing his harsh criticism of 1996 Miss Universe winner Alicia Machado who claims he once called her "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping."
He said on Twitter she was "My worst Miss U" and blasted Hillary Clinton for bringing her up at the first presidential debate on Monday. He said Friday that Clinton "floated her as an 'angel' without checking her past, which is terrible."
"Using Alicia M. in the debate as a paragon of virtue just shows that Crooked Hillary suffers from BAD JUDGEMENT! Hillary was set up by a con," he said in a tweet.
Fabiola Bittar de Kroon was in a rush to catch the train.
When she dropped off her toddler daughter at daycare on Thursday morning, she barely had a moment to chat.
"She was dropping off the daughter, I was closing up the stroller," daycare director Carlos Magner recalled. "We had a good talk for like a minute. And she said she was in a rush."
De Kroon sprinted off to the Hoboken Terminal.
A short time later, a train traveling too fast crashed through a barrier and into the station, killing de Kroon amid falling debris and injuring more than 100 other people.
An autopsy report reveals two sisters who were found dead while vacationing on a tropical African island had died from fluid in their lungs, a condition commonly known as acute pulmonary edema.
Police in the Republic of Seychelles released the findings Friday morning after the bodies of 37-year-old Annie Korkki 42-year-old Robin Korkki were found last week inside their villa at the Maia Luxury Resort.
Results showed Robin Korkki, who lived in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood and worked downtown as a trader, died of acute pulmonary edema caused by excess fluid in the lungs.
Her sister, Annie Korkki, of Denver, died of the same condition, according to the autopsy, in addition to cerebral edema listed as a contributing cause. Cerebral edema is a swelling of the brain.
Earlier this week their brother, Chris Korkki, told NBC 5’s affiliate station KARE that their family had been given no information on how his sisters suddenly died on what was supposed to be a “dream vacation.”

A lawyer for a white Oklahoma police officer charged in an unarmed black man's death said she was so hyper-focused on the situation that she didn't hear other officers arrive on the scene or even the deadly gunshot she fired.
Tulsa officer Betty Shelby, who is expected to plead not guilty to first-degree manslaughter at her arraignment on Friday, experienced what is commonly called "auditory exclusion," a condition in which people in high-stress situations often don't hear sounds around them, attorney Scott Wood said.
Former Israeli president Shimon Peres was remembered as a "great man" as scores of world leaders attended his funeral Friday, NBC News reported.
President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton were among 90 delegations from 70 countries paying their respects to Peres, who died Tuesday while hospitalized for a major stroke. He was 93.
"Even in the face of terrorist attacks, even after repeated disappointments at the negotiation table, he insisted that as human beings, Palestinians must be seen as equal in dignity to Jews and must therefore be equal in self-determination," Obama said.
Clinton said Peres was Israel's "biggest dreamer" and called him a "wise champion of our common humanity."
After the ceremony, the casket was led to the gravesite carried by eight members of an honor guard and led by soldiers carrying wreaths. Netanyahu and Obama chatted along the way, also talking with Peres' family.

From the vendors to the seat ushers to the security guards, those behind the scenes of this team for every home game of the season are getting to partake in the glory. The arena has over 1,000 full and part-time employees.

A search warrant has been executed at the home of a Middletown, Connecticut woman who is presumed dead after disappearing during a fishing trip with her son, a source close to the investigation said.
Californians will begin getting warnings of impending earthquakes through their cellphones, radios and other devices within the next year or two as the state ramps up a lifesaving early warning system, emergency management officials said Thursday.
Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation to develop the statewide warning system Thursday. Combined with $10 million from the state budget Brown approved earlier this year, California has the pieces in place to begin rolling out the warning system called ShakeAlert, said Mark Ghilarducci, head of the Governor's Office of Emergency Services.
Seismic early warning systems are designed to detect the first shock waves from a large jolt, calculate the strength and alert people before the slower but damaging waves spread. Mexico, China and Japan are among the countries already using them.
