On the day after a white nationalist rally rocked Charlottesville, Virginia, Jason Kessler stood behind a bank of microphones and introduced himself as the organizer of the "Unite the Right" protest that had sparked the violence in the city. Screams and boos drowned out Kessler's voice as he tried to address the deadly unrest that had engulfed the Aug. 12 rally. The news conference was ultimately shut down; police officers, whom Kessler accused of not doing enough to stop the violence, rushed him to safety as angry counterprotesters chased him away.
Once again, Barron Trump has become the target of online criticism. And once again, political figures, celebrities and others on social media are standing up for the 11-year-old, imploring the media to keep the youngest Trump out of the negative limelight. On Monday night, conservative news outlet the Daily Caller published a story attacking Barron for the T-shirt and shorts he wore while boarding Air Force One on Sunday. The headline read, "It's High Time Barron Trump Starts Dressing Like He's In the White House."
SEOUL, South Korea - The remains of some of the 10 sailors missing since a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with an oil tanker near Singapore have been found, the commander of the Navy's Pacific Fleet said Tuesday. The search for other missing sailors from the USS John S. McCain was ongoing. "We're always hopeful that there are survivors," Adm. Scott Swift said at a news conference in Singapore. "Until we have exhausted any potential of recovering survivors ..., the search and rescue efforts will continue."
Before Louise Linton's bizarre Instagram exchange Monday and before her lavish June wedding to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the wealthy Scottish actress wrote a memoir about her gap year in Zambia in the late 1990s. The book, self-published last year, was condemned by the Zambian government, scorched by critics as a "white savior" fantasy and ultimately removed from sales, according to the Telegraph. If Linton, 36, was trying to put such controversy behind her, she appears to have done the opposite.
At the height of the day's solar eclipse in New York, Google finally revealed the name of its latest Android operating system - in honor of another dark disc: the Oreo. The company turned the beloved cookie into a superhero based on the familiar Android robot logo.

Car sales in the U.S. have been rising for seven consecutive years now, and it's denting the value of whatever is currently parked in your garage or driveway. With so many new cars rolling out of dealerships lots and instantly becoming used cars, the secondary market is glutted and the pace of depreciation is rapidly accelerating. Your not-that-old car might not be a clunker quite yet, but it's probably a lot closer than you think.
Minnesota's worst measles outbreak in decades has unexpectedly energized anti-vaccine forces, who have stepped up their work in recent months to challenge efforts by public health officials and clinicians to prevent the spread of the highly infectious disease.
WASHINGTON - The Secret Service said Monday that it has enough money to cover the cost of protecting President Donald Trump and his family through the end of September, but after that the agency will hit a federally mandated cap on salaries and overtime unless Congress intervenes. If lawmakers don't lift the cap, about a third of the agency's agents would be working overtime without being paid, agency officials said.
FIRST . . . It's not a new thing that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is talking about the possibility of shortening the preseason. But it is interesting that the topic has come up again publicly. And, with a new set of labor negotiations between the league and the NFL Players Association almost at hand and with the saber-rattling about the potential for a work stoppage in 2021 already underway, the owners presumably will seek something in exchange for reducing the preseason, whether that means a longer regular season or an expanded postseason.
BARCELONA -- Spanish police said they shot and killed a man wearing what appeared to be a suicide bomb vest in a town an hour's drive west of Barcelona.
