Hillary Clinton calls Trump a ‘creep’ in upcoming memoir

In an excerpt from Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book, “What Happened,” the Democratic nominee for president calls President Donald Trump a “creep.”

The audio excerpts were played Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

In one of the clips, Clinton talks about a moment during the second presidential debate when Trump stood behind her as she answered a question, saying he was “literally breathing down my neck.”

Clinton also talks about why she wrote the book so soon after her election defeat.“In this book, I write about moments from the campaign that I wish I could go back and do over. If the Russians could hack my subconscious, they’d find a long list.”

The book, which takes a look at Clinton’s run for president and her unexpected defeat, is due to be released on Sept. 2.

Fla. lawmaker wants to ban soft drink purchases with food stamps

A Florida lawmaker wants to take a look at what is allowed to be purchased when it comes to using government assistance.

>> Read more trending news 

Rep. Ralph Massullo, (R-34th District), proposed HB47, which will allow the state’s Department of Children and Families to ask the federal government for a waiver. The waiver would allow the state to ban the use of Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits to buy soft drinks, WTVT reported.

If the federal government denies the waiver, the bill allows for the request to be resubmitted each year until it is granted.

The bill will be part of the the 2018 legislative session starting in January.

The proposal was filed on Friday, and if passed would be put in effect on July 1.

Texas mother upset, says 4-year-old son could not attend school because of long hair

A mother in the Houston, Texas, area is upset after she says her 4-year-old son was not allowed to go to school because of his long hair.

Jessica Oates told Inside Edition on Tuesday that Barbers Hill Kindergarten Center in Mont Belvieu, Texas, would not let her son, Jabez, in school because of his hair.

“When I went to enroll my child, I asked about the policy on hair. I was told my son would be allowed to keep his hair,” Oates said. “I was getting him all geared up for school. I took him to school and it was no big deal.”

Oates said that she was told she would only need to bring a document proving that the reason for her son’s long hair was religious or cultural. She said her family is part Cocopah Indian and in that culture, hair is a seen as strength.

The Barbers Hill School District has a policy that boy’s hair has to be above the eyes, ears and neck, KTRK reported.

“On Monday, I tried to take to my son to school, and I put his hair in a bun and I tied it with a little black hair tie. They said that the black hair tie was inappropriate and they would not allow him to go,” Oates told Inside Edition.

Oates said the policy is sexist “because they have no hair policy for girls” and that the policy is “outrageous and outdated.”

Barbers Hill School District issued the following statement on the matter to KTRK:

“Our local elected Board has established policy based on community expectations, and Barbers Hill administration will continue to implement the said policy.”

Oates plans to challenge the policy.

“I don’t believe that short hair should be required to get an education,” she said.

No, Earth will not experience 15 days of darkness

It's time to set the record straight on a recent fake claim involving Venus and Jupiter that's causing concern.

In recent days, rumors have been spinning around that Earth will experience 15 days of darkness this November. The reports, which cite a fake NASA document, incorrectly claim that from 2:50 a.m. Nov. 15 to Nov. 30, the Earth will go dark (and not just for a few minutes – but days).

>> Solar eclipse 2017: Did you damage your eyes looking at the eclipse? Here are some symptoms

Now, the silly reasoning behind this is that Jupiter and Venus will “come in close proximity of each other,” which somehow causes a reaction with the sun and theoretically causes the sun to go out.

Well, no need to worry because this theory is nonsense and has absolutely no scientific reasoning behind it. Our planet will NOT experience 15 days of darkness. But for fun, here is a list of things that could happen if we did experience just a week of complete darkness:

>> On WSBTV.com: Complete coverage of the solar eclipse

• You would first notice it would get pretty cold, pretty quickly (since there is no sun to heat the surface and atmosphere on earth)• No sun means no photosynthesis and those cold temperatures sure wouldn’t help anything grow (so I guess no more plants or food for us!)• Finally, if the sun decided to take a vacation for a week – the gravitational effect on us and other planets would be monumental. Without gravity, our planet would just float off into space.

But again, no need to worry, there will not be a blackout for days on end. The closest thing we will ever get to this is another solar eclipse like we experienced Monday.

Want to force your kids to answer their phones? Yep, there’s an app for that

One dad was so tired of his son ignoring his calls and texts he’s decided to take matters, and his son’s phone freedom into his own hands.

Nick Herbert developed the app ReplyASAP.

It will take control of a cellphone’s screen and sounds an alarm, even if the phone is set to silent, forcing the phone’s user to answer the call and unlock the device, Good Housekeeping reported.

The app also sends a read receipt when the receiver has opened the message.

The app, which currently is only available on Google Play, is free, as is the first connection. There are in-app purchases that will cost phone owners between  99 cents and $13.99. Herbert is developing an iOS version.

Good Housekeeping pointed out that there are other apps available now that will allow parents to lock their child’s device if they don’t respond quickly enough. You can also set a read receipt if you go to settings in the standard Messages app.

Retired man has sign of his own to respond to panhandlers

An Omaha, Nebraska, man has had enough with panhandlers in his city. Now he’s joining them as they ask for money. But he doesn’t want the cold, hard cash of others. Rather he’s holding a sign of his own that says, “Get a job. Get a job.”

Charles Logan told KETV, “If you want money, go get a job and work for it.”

He was inspired to start his protest when a panhandler hit close to home.

Logan saw his son asking strangers for money.

“That’s really what hurt me. Because I know that he didn’t have to do that. And a lot of people out here don’t have to do it,” Logan explained to KETV.

But Logan’s crusade against looking for handouts isn’t sitting well with those who are asking for financial help.

One man said that he’s a single father who is trying to come up with rent money and is facing eviction all while he waits for a disability check, KETV reported.

Another, who claimed was a college graduate and a “decent person” is just asking for money as a temporary solution after dealing with a drug addiction and a recent release from jail.

Logan said he’s been attacked while protesting panhandlers. One panhandler threw a drink at him. He said he’s been threatened with a knife and someone sprayed him with Mace, KETV reported.

He also said that he has had support from drivers who honk and give praise as they drive by.
