Donald Trump spoke out about the father of a Muslim-American war hero killed in Iraq, who issued a stirring reprimand of the Republican candidate in a speech at the Democratic National Convention. Khizr Khan said Trump has "sacrificed nothing and no one."

Trump questioned Khan's wife's silence, implying Ghazala Khan wasn't allowed to speak during the speech because she is Muslim.

"She had nothing to say. She probably, maybe she wasn't allowed to have anything to say," Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos in an interview published Saturday.

Trump rebutted Khan, telling Stephanopoulos he has made sacrifices through his success as a businessman. He also questioned if Khan wrote his own speech, asking, "Who wrote that? Did Hillary's scriptwriters write it?" 

The Clinton campaign had offered the services of a speechwriter, but according to Politico, Khan declined, opting to write his address himself.

Ghazala Khan told to MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell she was anxious during the speech, knowing her son's photo would appear behind her.

A shooting at a house party in Mukilteo, Washington, left three people dead and a fourth injured, police and city officials said Saturday, NBC News reported. 

About 15 to 20 teens and young adults were inside a home when a suspect walked in and opened fire.

A 19-year-old male suspect was apprehended many miles from where the shooting took place. Police said no other suspects were being sought.

One of the victims was identified by his family to NBC News as Jordan Ebner, who listed on Facebook that he attended Everett Community College. 

Susan Gemmer told The Associated Press that her 18-year-old granddaughter, Alexis Gemmer, hid in a closet to escape the gunman who was carrying a rifle.

Wealthy Republican donors are descending on Colorado Springs, Colorado, this weekend to attend the Charles and David Koch bi-annual retreat where the cloud of Donald Trump hovers over the rich influencers, NBC News reported.

The wealthy conservative activists and the sum of their vast donor network have shunned Trump throughout the entire presidential election. But as they gather this weekend, Trump is sure to be a topic of discussion as it's the first time the group is meeting since Trump was crowned as the Republican nominee.

Trump, coincidentally or not, held a rally in Colorado Springs Friday despite being 10 points behind in the latest poll in Colorado, a gap that explains why Democrat Hillary Clinton pulled advertising from the state.

On Saturday he tweeted, "I turned down a meeting with Charles and David Koch. Much better for them to meet with the puppets of politics, they will do much better!"

<![CDATA[Update on Deadly SDPD Shooting]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 17:11:43 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/Zimmerman-Faulconer-0730.jpg

San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and San Diego Police Department (SDPD) Chief Shelley Zimmerman said the city stands behind the families of two police officers shot in the line of duty -- officers who are true heroes.

The mayor and chief held a news briefing Saturday to discuss the shooting of two SDPD gang suppression officers, Jonathan "JD" DeGuzman and Wade Irwin. The shooting shocked the city, and left DeGuzman dead and Irwin seriously wounded.

Faulconer and Zimmerman said they have been visiting the families of both officers, sharing the outpouring of love and support from the San Diego community with the grieving spouses, children and loved ones of the officers. At this point, investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting.

Faulconer said he spoke with DeGuzman's wife and young son and daughter and told them to hold their heads high.

“We told them directly how proud all of us are – our city, our state, our nation – for JD. I told his wife and his son and daughter that he’s a hero for what he did, and that they have all of us standing behind their family. All of us.”

"We lost a terrific man," the mayor said of DeGuzman."He served our city well; served this community for a number of years.”

Faulconer said the past two days have been very emotional for the officers’ families and San Diego as a whole. He said the support from the community for the police department and the unity in the city is palpable, and can be felt by the families as they mourn.

“This city is behind you and it’s going to stay behind you,” the mayor added. "We have two heroes – who absolutely represent the best of the best."

Meanwhile, Zimmerman said Saturday that the police department deeply appreciates the support from San Diego. Her officers are more determined than ever to continue to protect and serve the city.

“Our resolve as San Diego Police officers is as strong as it’s ever been," the chief said. "We will continue to go out there every single day – to proudly wear our badge, proudly wear our uniform – and make sure that our communities are safe."

On Thursday, at around 11 p.m., DeGuzman, 43, and Irwin, 32, were on duty in San Diego’s Southcrest community, south of downtown. As the officers conducted a traffic stop in the 3700 block of Acacia Grove Way near Boston Avenue, they were fired upon.

Within seconds, the officers called for cover.

Dozens upon dozens of law enforcement officers raced to the scene, blanketing the neighborhood with patrol cars, sirens blaring. When backup officers arrived, they discovered both DeGuzman and Irwin suffering from gunshot wounds.

DeGuzman was rushed in a police patrol car to Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest. The officer – a 16-year-veteran of the force – died shortly thereafter.

Irwin – a nine-year veteran of the department – was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he underwent emergency surgery. Zimmerman said Irwin is expected to survive. His wife has been by his side as he recovers. They are parents to a 19-month-old baby.

The heartbreaking loss of Irwin’s partner was felt by the entire police department, Zimmerman said. The chief called the killing of DeGuzman “senseless.”

On Saturday, the chief said telling DeGuzman's family that he had died was one of the most difficult moments of her law enforcement career.

"It’s the most difficult thing a chief will ever have to do – to make that announcement, make that notification," she said. "It was the most difficult thing I’ve ever had to do."

Zimmerman said she had worked with DeGuzman at SDPD’s Mid-City Division and knew him well. In 2003, DeGuzman earned a Purple Heart from the department after being stabbed by a suspect while in the line of duty.

That time, Zimmerman got to tell DeGuzman’s wife that he was going to survive. This time, sadly, the chief said things turned out differently.

“I was driving over that night, I knew I was going to have to make that notification that he was not going to be okay, and he was not coming home,” Zimmerman lamented. “Nothing prepares you for that."

On Friday evening, Zimmerman identified Jesse Michael Gomez, 52, as the suspect in the shooting of the officers. He was taken into custody shortly after the shooting in a ravine in the 1300 block of 38th Street. The chief said another “possible” suspect is Marcus Antonio Cassani, 41.

Cassani was arrested for an outstanding warrant Friday after an hours-long standoff at a home on 41st and Epsilon streets in Shelltown. At this point, it is still unclear is Cassani was involved in the shooting of the officers.

Zimmerman said the shooting occurred extremely quickly – within “seconds to a minute or so.” Both DeGuzman and Irwin were wearing personal body cameras on their uniforms and the chief said “there is video evidence” on those cameras.

On Saturday, the chief said investigators were still working around the clock on the case, and she had no further details of the suspects to share.

She said although Irwin is now awake, he is still recovering from significant injuries and not in a condition to be interviewed by investigators about the incident. She said details from the surviving officer are forthcoming.

With the preliminary investigation underway, Zimmerman said details of the shooting could change. The chief has not said whether the shooting was an ambush.

Sources told NBC News the suspects are believed to belong to a local San Diego gang and there is no indication at this stage of the investigation that the officers were specifically targeted, as in recent incidents in Dallas and Baton Rouge that collectively claimed the lives of eight officers.

Zimmerman said that when the police shooting happened in Dallas and Baton Rouge, her department talked about and practiced what to do if this ever happened to San Diego officers. She said Saturday that investigators are “not making any correlation” to police shootings in those other cities.

“We just don’t know yet. Our investigation will determine this,” she added.

At this point, the chief said investigators are not looking for any additional suspects in connection with the deadly shooting.

Zimmerman said the police department is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support San Diego has shown to officers.

"Since this tragic incident I've heard from our officers, as they're out patrolling, [that] so many community members are coming up and thanking them; more than ever before,” Zimmerman said. “And I'll tell you, that means everything."

"We became San Diego police officers because we are proud to wear the uniform and the badge of the San Diego Police Department,” she added. “We are unwavering in our commitment to make sure we have the safest city in the United States."

Zimmerman said a funeral for DeGuzman has not been planned yet, but will share those details publicly once they're available. She described the fallen officer as a loving, caring family man who “came to work every single day just wanting to make a positive difference in his community.”

The chief described Irwin also as a caring, passionate police officer who works to serve the community each and every day.

"It’s a calling for him – for all of us," Zimmerman said. "He wants to make sure our community can live in safety."

She said Irwin is eager to fully recover and get back to his duties as a police officer.

"That’s what he wants; he wants to get back out there as quickly as he can," she added.

The deadly shooting is a grim reminder of the dangers police officers face in the line of duty every day.

“Police officers go out every single day, that wear a badge with pride. We all took an oath to protect and serve all of our communities. To have this happen to our police officers – we’ve seen this happen way too many times just in these last few weeks across our great country. It is tragic for everyone," Zimmerman said at an earlier news briefing.

On Saturday, the chief added that the police department and city is "in this together," and it's "never an us [SDPD] versus them [the public]."

“I want to thank all San Diegans who have shown their incredible support for these officers, for their families,” Faulconer added. “In times like this, it’s what brings us together. As we grieve, let’s stand strong for these families, for these officers, and what they mean to our city.”

The last time an SDPD officer was killed in the line of duty was in 2011, when Officer Jeremy Henwood was shot in San Diego's City Heights community. Since 1913, the city has lost 33 officers in the line of duty.

<![CDATA[Meet Team USA: Athletes to Watch in Rio]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 09:50:54 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/3-split-athletes.jpg

Michael Phelps is a household name. In the next month, Simone Biles may become one.

Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time with 22 medals, has dominated four Olympics and come out of retirement in hopes of sweeping a fifth. It's likely to be his final Games.

Biles is on the other end of her career, but with similar expectations. The 19-year-old gymnast heads into her first Olympics with 14 world championship medals under her belt, 10 of them gold. The budding superstar is undefeated in the all-around and has been called "unbeatable" by gymnastics legend Mary Lou Retton.

Phelps and Biles are among more than 550 athletes who will represent Team USA in Rio, including 292 women, the most in Olympic history to ever compete for a single country. Of Team USA's 68 returning champions, 53 are looking to defend titles won during the 2012 London Games.

Here's a look at the American athletes to watch during the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Swimming
At 31 years old, Phelps has 18 gold medals among the 22 medals he's earned in four Olympics. He set an Olympic record by taking home eight gold medals in Beijing in 2008 and is the first American swimmer to qualify for five Olympic Games.

He holds multiple world records and became the youngest male swimmer to break one at the age of 15. In August, Phelps clocked three of the year's fastest times. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Phelps will compete in the 100- and 200-meter butterfly and 200-meter individual medley.

Ryan Lochte, 31, has won 11 medals in three Olympics: five gold, three silver and three bronze. He has also taken home an impressive 62 world championship medals, including 36 gold. Lochte, who has set both individual and team world records, will compete in the 200-meter individual medley and the 4x200-meter freestyle.

Rio will mark the third Olympics for swimmer Nathan Adrian, who took home two gold medals and a silver in Beijing and London. With a time of 21.37 seconds, he holds the American record for fastest 50-meter freestyle.

Missy Franklin, the 21-year-old darling of the women's team, won four gold medals and a bronze in London. She has also taken home 17 world championship medals, including 11 gold, three silver and three bronze. Franklin, who grew up in Colorado and attended the University of California at Berkeley, will compete in the 200-meter backstroke, 200-meter freestyle and 4x200-meter freestyle.

Teammate Dana Vollmer, who has won four Olympic gold medals, will be competing in her third Games. She was back in the pool two months after giving birth to her first child last March.

Katie Ledecky, 19, will compete in her second Olympics. The Bethesda, Maryland, native won gold in London and has taken home nine world championship gold medals.

Gymnastics
Biles may be only 19, but her 10 golds at the World Championships are the most of any female gymnast. She's one of just three women in history to win four straight all-around titles at the P&G Gymnastics Championships, according to NBC Olympics. A native of Spring, Texas, Biles has also won the most world medals in U.S. history.

The most decorated U.S. gymnast in London, teammate Aly Raisman returns to defend her titles. The Needham, Massachusetts, native took home two gold medals and one bronze and was fourth all-around. She has also won four world championship medals: two gold, one silver and one bronze.

Also competing in her second Olympics is Gabby Douglas, who won all-around gold in London at the age of 16. Douglas, a Virginia native who lives in Los Angeles, won team gold at the 2011 and 2015 world championships and took home all-around silver last year.

Olympic newcomers Madison Kocian, a 19-year-old three-time world championship gold medalist, and Laurie Hernandez, 16, round out the women's team.

Leading the men's team is 23-year-old Sam Mikulak, who will compete in his second Olympics. From Newport Beach, California, Mikulak placed fifth in team vault in London and won bronze at the 2014 world championship. He took home two two gold medals and two bronze at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Also returning for his second Olympics is Jake Dalton, a 24-year-old native of Reno, Nevada, who attended the University of Oklahoma. Dalton has won four medals in four world championships. He did not medal in London.

London alternates Alex Naddour and Chris Brooks will also compete for Team USA, along with 2012 team member Danell Leyva. Leyva replaces John Orozco, who qualified for Rio after tearing his Achilles tendon, only to injure his ACL in June and withdraw from the team.

Basketball
Rio will mark the fourth Olympics for New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony, the only U.S. men's basketball player in history to qualify for four Games. Anthony, 32, has won two Olympic gold medals and one bronze. He set a Team USA single-game scoring record in London with 37 points against Nigeria and took home bronze in the 2006 world championship.

Kevin Durant, 27, of the Golden State Warriors, will compete in his second Olympics. A member of the 2012 gold medal team, Durant was named MVP of the 2010 world championship game and was selected to play on that year's All-World Championship Team.

Indiana Pacers guard Paul George, 25, will compete in his first Olympics after overcoming a horrific leg injury, which caused him to miss most of the 2015 season. George's right tibia and fibula snapped on the court during the 2014 USA Basketball Showcase, stunning teammates and spectators alike. The NBA All-Star has made a full recovery and is expected to serve as a key member of the team in Rio.

The powerhouse U.S. women's basketball team includes half a dozen players from the University of Connecticut, a force to be reckoned with in the world of college basketball. Former UConn stars Sue Bird, Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and Tina Charles will help lead the team. Joining them is recent UConn graduate and Olympic newcomer Breanna Stewart, who went to the Seattle Storm as the No. 1 WNBA draft pick in 2016.

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Tamika Catchings, 37, will also compete. The Indiana Fever forward and Duncanville, Texas, native has played in three world championships, earning two gold medals and a bronze. She's one of only nine players in history to have won an Olympic gold medal, world championship gold medal, NCAA title and WNBA championship, according to USA Basketball.

Track and Field
Champion sprinter Allyson Felix, 30, returns to compete in her fourth Olympics. The Los Angeles native has won four gold medals — three in London and one in Beijing — and two silver medals. She has also medaled 13 times in seven world championships and was named 2012 IAFF World Athlete of the Year.

Felix, who fought through an ankle injury during the Rio trials, fell a hundredth of a second shy of qualifying for the 200-meter dash — her first failure to qualify since she was 15 years old, according to NBC Sports. She will compete in the 400-meter and 4x400-meter dash.

Tianna Bartoletta, 30, will compete in the 100-meter dash and long jump. She won gold in the 4x100-meters during the 2012 London Games and has competed in six world championships, earning five gold medals and two bronze. Bartoletta also competed in 2012 for the U.S. national bobsled team alongside fellow track and field Olympian Lolo Jones. She took bronze in the 2012 bobsledding World Cup.

Devon Allen, 21, is a new face in the Olympic crowd. A wide receiver and runner at the University of Oregon, Allen has competed in three NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships and one outdoor championship. He'll run the 110-meter hurdles in Rio.

Distance runner Galen Rupp, 30, qualified for Rio by winning the U.S. Olympic marathon trials in his first ever 26.2-mile race. He competed in both Beijing and London, where he took home silver in the 10,000-meter, becoming the first American to medal in that event since 1964. The five-time USA Outdoor champion has competed in six world championships, with a top finish of fourth in 2013. 

At age 41, Meb Keflezighi is the oldest American man to run the Olympic marathon the only one to make three Olympic teams. He won the 2014 Boston Marathon and 2009 New York City Marathon and the American record for the 20-kilometer. Keflezighi has competed in two world championships.

Soccer
Co-captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd, 34, hopes to clinch a third consecutive Olympic gold medal. Lloyd scored the game-winning goal in the 2008 gold-medal match against Brazil and netted both goals in Team USA's 2-1 victory over Japan in 2012. The New Jersey native has also won two world championship medals and in 2015 became the first player in team history to score in four consecutive FIFA World Cup games.

Despite concerns about the Zika virus, record-setting goalkeeper Hope Solo will join her team in Rio to compete in her third Olympic games. She won gold in both Beijing and London and served as an alternate in Athens in 2004. Solo is a FIFA World Cup Golden Glove Award winner and a member of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup All-Star Team.

Rio will be the second Olympics for 27-year-old forward Alex Morgan, who scored three goals in London, one of which sent Team USA to the gold-medal match. Morgan graduated early from the University of California at Berkeley and plays for the Orlando Pride.

Midfielder Megan Rapinoe was a toss up for Team USA after tearing her ACL last December, but recovered to qualify for her second Olympic Games. Rapinoe, 31, was a member of the U.S. women's national team when it won the World Cup in 2015 and was selected to the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup All-Star Team.

The U.S. men's soccer team did not qualify to compete in Rio.

Other Sports
Beach volleyball champ Kerri Walsh-Jennings, 37, heads to Rio for her fifth Olympics without her partner of 11 years, Misty Mae-Treanor, who retired to start a family after the 2012 games. Together, the two won 21 consecutive Olympic matches and lost only one set — to Austria in 2012. Walsh-Jennings won gold in the 2004, 2008 and 2012 Games and will have the No. 3 seed in Rio with partner April Ross, whom she defeated in London.

Water polo captain Tony Azevedo will also compete in his fifth Olympics. The 34-year-old native of Brazil in 2012 became the first American men's water polo player to compete in four Olympics, along with teammate Ryan Bailey. Azevedo won a silver medal in Beijing and took gold in five Pan American Games. He has competed in eight world championships.

Dominant forces on the tennis court, sisters Serena and Venus Williams will take their talents to Rio to compete in their fourth and fifth Olympics, respectively. Together they are unstoppable, making the winningest doubles team in Olympic history. They go into the games with a perfect 15-0 doubles record and seek to tie the record for overall tennis medals — five.

Equestrian Phillip Dutton is one of only a handful of athletes in Team USA history to compete in the Olympics for a sixth time. At age 52, he is also the oldest athlete on Team USA. Dutton has won two Olympic gold medals and competed in six world championships. He moved from his native Australia to the U.S. in 1991 and became a citizen in 2006. 

The youngest member of Team USA, 16-year-old Kanak Jha, will compete in table tennis. The first-time Olympian has won multiple national titles and became the youngest ever World Cup participant in 2014.

First-time Olympic golfer Bubba Watson, has nine tournament victories under his belt, most recently the 2016 Northern Trust Open and the 2015 Travelers Championship. Watson, 37, has represented the U.S. three times in the Ryder Cup and twice in the Presidents Cup.

The women's rowing team heads to Rio with 10 consecutive world titles under its belt and a reputation for being one of the best sports teams in history, according to NBC Olympics. Leading the women's eight are third-time Olympian Eleanor Logan and second-time Olympian Meghan Musnicki, both members of the 2012 gold medal team. They're joined by coxswain Katelin Snyder, Amanda Elmore, Tessa Gobbo, Emily Regan, Lauren Schmetterling, Amanda Polk and Kerry Simmonds.

<![CDATA[LA's 'Murder House' Sold]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 16:19:18 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/4-4-16-Murde_House.jpg

The "murder house" mystery is solved.

The new buyers of the spooky, haunted house in Los Angeles that has been the stuff of legend for decades are celebrity attorney Gloria Allred's daughter Lisa Bloom and her husband Braden Pollock, the The Los Angeles Times reported. 

They paid about $2.3 million for the four-bedroom mansion at 2475 Glendower Place in Los Feliz.

It was the scene of a murder in 1959 when Dr. Harold N. Perelson bludgeoned his wife to death with a hammer and attacked his 18-year-old daughter before killing himself.

Bloom used to anchor a legal news program on truTv called "Lisa Bloom: Open Court." She is a legal analyst for NBC News. 

Nancy Sanborn, the realtor of the property, said Tuesday that a couple purchased the home in a probate sale last month. She did not name the buyers, only saying that they really wanted to buy the house.

The "murder house" has become the center of morbid fascination, sparking ghost hunters to ruminate about it online.

After the Perelsons, another family bought the home in probate in the early 1960s. When they died, the son inherited it from his parents but he didn't live there. The last owner died last year and the home went to probate again. The house went up for sale last week, said Sanborn.

Some claim they've seen the ghost of Dr. Perelson.

<![CDATA[Lawmaker Warns of Pokemon Risks ]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 13:38:27 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/190*120/72916go.jpg

A state lawmaker in New York says the wildly popular smartphone game "Pokemon Go" could inadvertently give sexual predators easy access to new prey.

To ensure that doesn't happen, the state should prohibit higher-level sex offenders from being able to play the game, and others like it, Sen. Jeffrey Klein said. The Bronx Democrat also proposes requiring game manufacturers to take steps to ensure the virtual Pokemon creatures don't pop up near the homes of sexual offenders.

"While children believe they are out to catch a Pokemon, what might really be lurking could be a predator instead of a Pikachu," Klein said, referring to a type of Pokemon creature. "We want our children to have safe fun, but it makes no sense at all to give dangerous sexual predators a virtual road map to where our children congregate."

Users playing "Pokemon Go" roam through the physical world searching for virtual Pokemon creatures. The game also allows players to attract other users using so-called "lures."

Klein said the state already prohibits high-level offenders from using social media, and said it makes sense to prohibit them from playing a game that could easily be used for malicious purposes.

In addition, Klein's proposal would require game makers to cross reference the state's sexual offender registry to automatically delete any Pokemon creatures near the residence of an offender.

An investigation by the senator's office found several instances of Pokemon creatures near the homes of sex offenders, he said.

He predicted the game is only the first of a wave of similar augmented reality games.

A message sent by The Associated Press seeking comment from the game's manufacturers was not immediately returned Friday.

<![CDATA[Kids Sell Lemonade to Help Grandma]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 13:37:16 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/lemonadehust.jpg

A Hemet, Southern California, family is trying to raise money to replace their stolen car so their grandmother can get to her cancer treatments. Their method of choice: a lemonade stand.

Kimberly Hust's mother, Marsha Long, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2014, Hust said. After undergoing surgery, the family thought she was in the clear. But earlier this year the doctors told her the cancer was back.

"We were sad and heartbroken," Hust said.

Hust's mother underwent emergency surgery to have the fast-growing tumor removed, but now she has to have chemo and radiation treatments five times a week.

To make matters worse, the family's only car was stolen three weeks ago. Police returned it, but Hust said the thieves damaged it to the point where it was no longer safe to drive.

"I was driving to [the grocery store] and it broke down four times," Hust said. "That was just to the store; the hospital is much farther away."

Hust said the car was their only way to get her mom to the hospital for her much-needed treatments. Now they're trying to come up with the money to replace it. Hust's children and nieces found a novel way to help.

"An idea of a lemonade stand just popped into our heads," said Hust's 15-year-old niece, Mauriah. "We don't have a lot of money, so that seemed like a good way to help."

Long's four grandchildren set up the stand Friday morning — complete with a small pool for staying out of the heat.

"I'm getting cups and pouring," 8-year-old Audie said. "You pour, and then you get back in [the pool]."

So far, the kids say they've served four people.

"Some people said keep the change," Audie said.

Mauriah said her grandparents were moved to tears when they saw the stand.

"We didn't tell our grandma before," she said. "We set it up, and when [our grandparents] walked out there they just started crying."

"Isn't that awesome," Long said. "My grandkids just mean so much to me."

The kids said they'll be manning the stand at 1150 North Kirby St. in Hemet from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. They'll be serving cups of lemonade for 50 cents each, with a huge thank you on the side.

"Thank you very much for supporting our grandma," Mauriah's sister Alena said. "We don't want her to die — we really want to help."

Hust has also set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to replace their car.

<![CDATA[13 Hospitalized Over Heat]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 17:54:37 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/post+office+evacuation+0730.jpg

Thirteen people were hospitalized for heat-related illnesses at a Chicago post office Saturday morning, officials confirmed. 

About 10 ambulances were called to the post office located at W Ohio and N Dearborn Streets around 8 a.m., according to the Chicago Fire Department. Thirteen people were taken to area hospitals for heat exhaustion, heat stress, and dehydration, authorities said. Another 23 refused medical treatment on the scene. 

Employees said the air conditioning in the building was not working, and it was at least 100 degrees inside. 135 employees were working at the facility at the time, according to a statement from the U.S. Postal Service. 

The building was evacuated and dozens of postal workers were seen standing outside in the street, on the sidewalk and inside a cooling bus following the incident. 

One postal worker said he saw two people vomiting, and a supervisor who had passed out taken away in an ambulance.

Employees were allowed to reenter the building around 9 a.m. to collect their belongings in the event that they would be sent home. Around 10 a.m., postal workers were told to stay on the clock and head to the main post office at Harrison and Canal Streets in the South Loop to continue working. 

If employees wanted to go home, a spokesperson said they could fill out a slip and leave. The post office will remain closed through Monday, according to the U.S.P.S.

"We regret any inconvenience this suspension may cause for our customers," acting Postmaster Tangela Bush said in a statement. "Our first priority is to ensure our employees have a safe working environment. We will resume our Fort Dearborn operations at the earliest appropriate opportunity."

Mail service will likely be interrupted in the 60610, 60611, and 60654 zip codes, according to Mark Reynolds, a spokesperson for the United States Postal Service.

One of the standout speeches at the Democratic National Convention came not from the slew of politicians or celebrities but from the parents of a Muslim-American war hero who shared a stirring reprimand for GOP candidate Donald Trump. But that was only part of their message.

Khizr Khan appeared on MSNBC's "Last Call With Lawrence O'Donnell" on Friday with his wife Ghazala Khan and said there were two other individuals he wanted to address: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Khan called both men "patriots" and "decent human beings" and appealed to them: "Isn't it time to repudiate Trump?"

<![CDATA[Taco Bell Testing Cheetos Burrito]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 11:03:25 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/186*120/cb_fde1a182cbf17d69c9bd784c3ea3faf2.nbcnews-ux-2880-1000.jpg

Taco Bell has confirmed reports that it is indeed testing a Cheetos Burrito.

The Cheetos Burrito is stuffed with beef, rice, nacho cheese, and, of course, Cheetos.

The chain had tested out the Cheetos Crunchwrap Slider earlier this year in Canada, but this is the first time Cheetos are being used on its products in the U.S., the company said in an email to NBC News.

Tests will start mid-August in Cincinnati, and the burritos will cost $1.

This is the second Cheetos and fast food combo of the summer. Earlier, Burger King launched a Mac n' Cheetos dish.

In 2012, the taco chain debuted the Doritos Locos Taco, another fast-food and highly palatable salty snack food mash up.

Neighbors in Philadelphia cheered as rescuers pulled a man out alive who'd purposely jumped into the sewer and then got sucked down Friday afternoon.

The 46-year-old man removed a storm drain that covered an 18-inch pipe and leapt in. Suction from rushing water below pulled him down about 10 feet.

Emergency crews worked for several hours at the intersection of 9th and Pike Streets in the Hunting Park neighborhood of Philadelphia in what the fire commissioner called a difficult environment filled with sewage and water.

"Very challenging incident. Very difficult rescue." Commissioner Adam Thiel said. "It was very dark so they have to deploy all these specialized techniques with all this specialized equipment."

Rescuers had to ventilate the area due to toxic and flammable gasses before they climbed down a ladder to reach the man.

The victim was in stable condition at Temple hospital. Rescue workers had to decontaminate.

The police department and water department workers assisted in the rescue.

"This is what we do... All of us working for you every day," Thiel said.

France is facing questions over its monitoring of extremists after both of the attackers who slit the throat of an elderly priest were known to authorities - including a teen who twice tried to wage jihad in Syria, NBC News reported. 

Adel Kermiche, 19, was intercepted and arrested as he traveled to fight alongside ISIS using family members' identity documents two times last year.

He was put under house arrest in his hometown of Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen, Normandy, with an electronic surveillance ankle bracelet after a judge freed him, terror prosecutor Francois Molins said.

Kermiche was one of 1,100 French citizens or residents who want to travel to the Middle East to fight alongside ISIS or who have already been and come back, according to government estimates.

<![CDATA[Pence: 'Name Calling' Has No Place in Politics]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 19:31:43 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/MikePenceMichiganRally-AP_16211005187404.jpg

Mike Pence called out President Barack Obama on Friday for indirectly referring to Donald Trump as a demagogue, saying “name calling” has “no place in public life,” NBC News reported. 

Pence told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt he felt it was “unfortunate” that the president would use a term like that during his comments about Trump during his speech at the Democratic National Convention. 

The president took a swipe at Trump on Wednesday, but didn’t attach the demagogue label directly to Trump: “Anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end," Obama said. 

Pence has promised to run a campaign free from personal attacks. But his comments back up against Trump’s use of derogatory nicknames over the last year including: "Little Michael Bloomberg", "Crooked Hillary" [Clinton], "Corrupt [Tim] Kaine", "Liddle Marco [Rubio]", "Lyin' Ted" [Cruz], "Crazy Bernie" [Sanders], "Goofy" [Elizabeth Warren] and "Low Energy Jeb" [Bush].

<![CDATA[Olympian Sister Rivalry ]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 10:14:58 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/190*120/GettyImages-149815277.jpg

It may be typical for there to be a little sibling rivalry among brothers and sisters, but for fencing Olympians Kelley and Courtney Hurley, they might just be the closest sisters you’ve ever met.

“There was definitely some competitive battles we had, but as soon as we left for college I feel like I really was able to sort of separate myself from Courtney and realize I don’t have to compare myself, I am who I am,” Kelley Hurley said.

Kelley and Courtney are headed for their second Olympic games together, among seven sets of siblings competing in Rio this year. 

In 2012 the sisters took home the bronze medal in the Women’s Team Epee at the London Games.

“I mean two medals for one family that’s hard to do,” Courtney Hurley said. “So winning with my sister and also my parents in the crowd, you can’t beat that feeling.”

Fencing isn't new to the Hurley family.

Kelley and Courtney’s parents met in fencing and introduced the girls to the sport when they were around seven or eight years old.

“I think it comes with our family. The way our family works, we call ourselves Team Hurley, mom and dad and Courtney and I, it’s a win for Team Hurley,” Kelley said. “We don’t look at it as me trying to prove I’m better than Courtney, that’s not the way we were raised.”

Both sisters attended the University of Notre Dame because of its notable fencing program. Kelley attended the university two years before Courtney. Courtney was between Notre Dame and Ohio State University.

“If Courtney had gone to Ohio State University that probably wouldn’t have helped our bond,” Kelley said.

The Hurley sisters lived together throughout college and as they have progressed in the sport. For the past year Kelley and Courtney have lived in Houston, Texas.

“The awesome thing about having my sister there is I truly want her to do well,” Kelley said. “And in fencing I find that to be very rare to want the best for them [sibling].”

Kelley and Courtney motivate each other every day to practice and train.

“We genuinely want us to do well,” Courtney Hurley said. “I don’t think I’ve ever smack-talked Kelley.”

A friendly sibling rivalry moment when they were starting-off in the sport, Kelley Hurley recalls it happening just once.

"There was one time I lost and Courtney said I sucked," Kelly Hurley said as she laughed.

The sisters have competed against each other multiple times in America but never against each other in international competitions. As for the Rio Games, the chance of competing against each other would be at the very end of the Olympics.

“I think if we did run into each other, it depends on what round, if it depends on a medal or no medal, it would be a pretty intense match,” Kelley Hurley said. “A win’s a win for Team USA and Team Hurley.”

The Hurley sisters hope that regardless of the competition, one of them makes it to the end.

“We can’t both win,” Kelley Hurley said. “That’s what happens when you pick the same sport.”

As for now, Kelley and Courtney are unsure what the future holds for the Hurley Team.

“I think eventually we’re going to part ways, I don’t know if it’s now or after the Olympics,” Courtney Hurley said. “We thought about recently that this might be the end and this might be a break and it’s kind of sad because we’ve always lived with each other.”

Jailed transgender soldier Chelsea Manning is facing "administrative offenses" related to her July 5 suicide attempt that could result in indefinite solitary confinement, her attorneys have said.

Manning, who was convicted in 2013 on espionage charges for sending more than 700,000 classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, was briefly hospitalized earlier this month for an unknown medical condition. It was later confirmed she had tried to end her own life. 

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, the new charges against Manning include "resisting the force cell move team," "prohibited property" and "conduct which threatens." 

A spokesman for the Army did not return NBC News' request for comment.

Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine seemingly contradicted the assertion, made by Hillary Clinton's campaign and his own spokesperson, that he would work with the nominee on restoring Medicaid funding for abortion, NBC News reported.

Clinton has come out strongly in favor of repealing the Hyde Amendment, which bans public funding for abortion except in cases of rape, incest and life endangerment. The current Democratic platform contains the strongest language yet against Hyde.

In an interview with CNN Friday, Kaine said, "I have been for the Hyde Amendment. I haven't changed my position on that." He then repeated it: "I have not changed my position. Have not changed my position on that."

<![CDATA[Web's Beloved Dogs Meet at Facebook]]> Sat, 30 Jul 2016 08:11:07 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/facebookdogs_n.jpg

Two social media powerhouses joined together for a business lunch at Facebook's Menlo Park headquarters on Thursday, no doubt striking a few business deals, comparing notes on the best brands of dog food, and arguing over who really is the internet's favorite dog. 

The dress code was, ahem, collar optional. 

Beast Zuckerberg, sporting a professional top-knot (or is it a dogbun?), invited social media star Doug the Pug for a sit down chat. The meeting's minutes and agenda were not released to the public, so there's no way to know for sure what the pooches were plotting. 

However, a photograph Beast's personal assistant, Mark Zuckerberg, posted to Facebook does provide some hints: 

"Apparently Beast had an important meeting at the office today with Doug the Pug," Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook. "They agree that Facebook needs more kibble and belly rubs. Beast also wants some sheep."

After their clandestine luncheon, Doug the Pug used his vast social media following to share a picture of the new business buddies, although Doug couldn't help throwing a little shade in the process. 

Beast has yet to respond to this potential dig via his personal Facebook.

The co-founder of Autism Speaks and wife of a former NBC CEO, Suzanne Wright, died Friday afternoon in her Fairfield, Connecticut, home, the organization's website said. 

"Suzanne sparked a global conversation with one question: How can we help people with autism live their best possible lives?" Autism Speaks Chairman of the Board of Directors Brian Kelly and CEO Angela Geiger said in a joint statement.

"Persuading the world to see the potential in each child and adult on the vast autism spectrum is her greatest legacy."

Wright and her husband, Bob, co-founded Autism Speaks in 2005 after their grandson, Christian, was diagnosed. 

The New York-native helped create the iconic puzzle-piece logo that is now recognized worldwide to represent autism and persuaded the United nations to establish April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day, according to the organization's website. 

Bob and Suzanne married in 1967, while her husband was still in law school at the University of Virginia School of Law. In 1986, he was named president and CEO of NBC where he remained at the helm for 22 years.

A 14-year-old girl in Wisconsin has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly cutting another teen’s throat, NBC News reported. 

The attack happened in the town of New Richmond on Wednesday. The victim survived. 

The attacker allegedly rode her bike to the 15-year-old victim’s house and broke bowls over her head, using the shards as knives.

According to court documents, the attacker told her victim she was a psychopath committing her first kill and that she would likely kill again. She allegedly asked the victim if she wanted to “die now” or “bleed out.” 

The 14-year-old is being held in the county’s juvenile jail, according to police. NBC News is not identifying her because of her age.

The cows, however, continue walking down the road, leading the officer to call out to the cows and ask them to "stop resisting arrest."

<![CDATA[Appeals Court Rejects Strict NC Voting Law]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:16:50 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/PatMcCrory-AP_16176608389894.jpg

A North Carolina voting law was struck down Friday by a federal appeals court, finding that Republican lawmakers intentionally discriminated against African-Americans, NBC News reported. 

According to the federal appeals court, the measure’s provisions "target African-Americans with almost surgical precision." The court found that African-American registration and turnout rates reached parity with those of whites by 2013. 

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, a Republican, signed and championed the law, which imposed a voter ID requirement, cut early voting opportunities, eliminated same-day voter registration and banned voting from outside precincts. 

A district court upheld the law, but the appeals court found it erred in its decision by seeing the law’s goals as partisan rather than race-based. 

"Before enacting that law, the legislature requested data on the use, by race, of a number of voting practices. Upon receipt of the race data, the General Assembly enacted legislation that restricted voting and registration in five different ways, all of which disproportionately affected African-Americans."

<![CDATA['This Is the Job': Great Balloon Pop Follows DNC]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:40:49 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/DNC+Balloon+Pop+Gif.gif

A massive drop of red, white and blue balloons capped off four days of Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia late Thursday night.

But once the balloons dropped and the delegates began to leave the arena, the arena operations crews -- used to normally transition the arena from Sixers to Flyers games -- armed with sharp points began cleaning up by popping the patriotic balloons.

"We have the job," said Brian, wearing a Flyers cap and a smile as he bent over to pop balloon after balloon.

"There's a lot of work to do," said co-worker Odeen, wearing a Phillies cap.

"We do a lot. We do the breakdown, setup of the court, setup for concerts, basketball, hockey. We do a little bit of everything, we're operations," said Brian.

But the operations team had the unique task overnight of balloon poppers.

"This is the job to have right now, all you gotta do is 'pop, pop, pop,'" said Brian.

So what's the tool of the trade for these building-converting experts? Brian, bent down, used a 2016 Twitter pin to pop some of the thousands of balloons scattered over the arena floor.

"A fine pin will bust all these balloons," Brian said.

Brian showed off his pin while shouting "Hillary!"

After about an hour, the crew of balloon poppers expanded as people carrying long poles with pins on the end attacked the balloons.

"Pop, pop, pop," rang throughout the arena and then all the balloons were gone after about two hours. Somewhere, Nena must be singing.

<![CDATA[ Calif. Resort Uses Falcons As 'Bouncers' to Combat Seagull Population]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:13:51 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/214*120/JoeRoyHarrisHawk.jpg

The Terranea Resort on the Palos Verdes Peninsula had a seagull problem that was solved by turning to some of nature's most intimidating "bouncers."

Joe Roy III and his birds of prey specialize in getting rid of the large seagull populations using non-lethal methods.

He flies his birds, including an 18-year-old hawk, around the resort just as the sun comes up as a part of his typical day. This keeps the gull population away, intimidated by the fearsome bird of prey.

He describes his birds as the bouncers of the resort, making sure the gulls recognize that the area as unfriendly and dangerous.

Roy has been practicing falconry since he was 9 years old.

"Falconry is an art form. I don't know anything about zen, but it's a self-perfecting art," he said.

The falconry program began in May 2009 as part of Terranea's Adventure Concierge service to get guests more comfortable with the surrounding area.

"They love it, most of the people that arrive are familiar with the falconry program. Typically, they're quite excited, and once in a while they get nervous," Roy said. "They want to see the birds and take photos and videos."

He added that the people who were most supportive of the falconry program were people who came from areas with a lot of seagulls. 

He uses a Eurasian eagle owl to educate guests on the general identification of birds, their role in the environment and how they feed and fly. 

"These birds of prey are more akin to cats than dogs. We don't train them like we train dogs," he said about the birds' personalities.

Even so, Roy added that there is also emotions involved with the birds.

"If we imprint on them there's an emotional bond to be had, but if they're older it's more of a work relationship," he said.

His 18-year-old peregrine hawk he raised since she was an infant, and said that the bird saw him as her mother and then later as a mate. 

In short, a friend. 

"If your heart doesn't beat faster when you see a hawk or falcon take off, you're dead," he said.

<![CDATA[Could Candidate Trump Be Denied National Security Briefings?]]> Fri, 29 Jul 2016 13:00:58 -0400 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/GettyImages-578134196-%281%29.jpg

Calls have increased for Republican nominee Donald Trump to be denied national security briefings offered to presidential nominees of major political parties after his entreaty to Russian hackers to find Hillary Clinton's deleted e-mails, NBC News reported.

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said he hopes the untrustworthy Trump is given "fake intelligence briefings." Democratic Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island sent a letter to President Barack Obama saying Trump "is unfit to receive sensitive intelligence" and asks that he "withhold" Trump's expected intelligence briefing.

The national security briefings are "a courtesy," at the discretion of the president and not required by law, according to David Priess, the author of "The President's Book of Secrets." But, Priess noted, if a candidate divulges classified information, there could be legal repercussions but the political repercussions would probably be far worse.

On Thursday, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said the president will respect the 60-year-old tradition.
