‘Bridezilla’ in wedding dress reportedly tackled loud strangers outside venue

A self-described “bridezilla” tackled a group of loud people outside her rugby club wedding venue in Wales — because she “didn’t want anything to spoil our great day,” according to a report.

The not-so-blushing bride Zoe Dallimore, 31, still in her wedding dress, was captured on video Friday after she took the plunge on one of the strangers in front of her new hubby, David, The Sun reported.

“We’d had a fantastic day and around 10:30 p.m. me and David were ready to go home,” the mom-of-five from Penlan told the outlet. “We decided to walk because we only live 10 minutes away from where we had the reception at Penlan Rugby Club.”

As they left, she said, a small group of strangers outside were in the midst of a loud argument.

“I still don’t know who they were or what t...

A fundraiser for the San Francisco-based hair salon who’s owner says she needs to relocate her business after releasing video of a maskless House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has reached its goal of $300,000, the salon owner announced.

Speaking to Fox News Monday, a tearful Erica Kious thanked those who donated to a GoFundMe page in her honor amid her feud with Pelosi (D-Calif.).

“I am very humbled and grateful to have received such an outpouring of kindness, empathy and generosity from people I don’t even know, and from...

John Bolton denies claim that Trump called fallen American soldiers ‘losers’

Former National Security Adviser John Bolton reiterated his skepticism over a report alleging that President Trump disparaged America’s war dead during a 2018 trip to France.

Bolton, who turned from friend to foe to the commander-in-chief after leaving the White House, said during an interview Monday with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum that the allegations were “simply false.”

“According to what that article said, the president made disparaging remarks about soldiers and people buried in the cemetery in connection with the decision for him not to go to the ceremony that was planned that afternoon, and that was simply false,” Bolton told the network.

“I don’t know who told the author that, but that was false.”

“The main issue was whether or not weather conditions permitted t...

More than 700 airline passengers banned in US for refusing to wear masks

More than 700 airline passengers have been banned from flying on US airlines for refusing to wear masks, according to a report.

Delta Air Lines has been the strictest, putting 270 passengers on its “no fly” list for flouting its mask policy, the Los Angeles Times said — famously including the ex-Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden.

United Airlines told the Californian paper it has banned 150, Spirit Airlines said 128, Frontier Airlines banned 106 and Hawaiian Airlines six.

Alaska Airlines said it has banned 78 — and also gave out 92 warnings, or “yellow cards,” to passengers who had to be admonished more than once on a flight for ignoring the mask policy, the L.A. paper said.

The actual tally could be far higher, with others including American Airlines and Southwest Airlines...

Mitt Romney tweets cutting remark at Nancy Pelosi

Republican Sen. Mitt Romney tweeted out a cutting remark at Dem House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday.

The Utah pol posted a photo of himself getting a haircut from his wife at home — and included a dig at Pelosi over her beauty-salon debacle amid the coronavirus crackdown.

“Getting cleaned up for resumption of the Senate. Better salon than Pelosi’s!” the Utah politician and onetime presidential candidate wrote above a photo of himself grinning while sitting in front of wife Ann as she wields scissors over his locks.

Pelosi has been taking heat since going to a San Francisco salon last week and getting her hair done — despite local coronavirus rules barring indoor personal-care services...

Facebook will pay users to log off before 2020 election

It’s pay to not play.

Facebook is offering users money to refrain from using the site and Instagram in the weeks leading up to the bitterly contested November elections.

To assess the impact of social media on voting, the company will pay selected members up to $120 to deactivate their accounts beginning at the end of September.

“Anyone who chooses to opt-in – whether it’s completing surveys or deactivating FB or IG for a period of time – will be compensated,” Facebook spokesperson Liz Bourgeois tweeted last week. “This is fairly standard for this type of academic research.”

The Silicon Valley giant said it expects 200,000 to 400,000 people to take part.

“Representative, scientific samples of people in the US will be selected and invited to participate in the study...

Record 2 million acres burned in devastating California wildfires

SHAVER LAKE, Calif. — Wildfires have burned a record 2 million acres in California this year, and the danger for more destruction is so high the U.S. Forest Service announced Monday it was closing all eight national forests in the southern half of the state.

After a typically dry summer, California is parched heading into fall and what normally is the most dangerous time for wildfires. Two of the three largest fires in state history are burning in the San Francisco Bay Area. More than 14,000 firefighters are battling those fires and dozens of others more around California.

A three-day heat wave brought triple-digit temperatures to much of the state during Labor Day weekend. But right behind it was a weather system with dry winds that could fan fires...

House Dems to probe Postmaster Louis DeJoy for alleged fundraising violations

House Democrats will probe Postmaster General Louis DeJoy for allegedly encouraging former employees to contribute to his preferred political candidates and then later reimbursing them, according to a new report.

Rep. Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.) said late Monday that the House Committee on Oversight and Reform will investigate the charges against DeJoy and said that he should be immediately removed from his position.

The Washington Post reported this weekend that DeJoy encouraged staffers at his former North Carolina logistics firm to donate to select political figures between 2003 and 2014 and then unlawfully recompensed them with bonuses.

DeJoy denied any wrongdoing during testimony before the House Oversight panel last month in statements Maloney said may have been untruthful.

Goat invades cop car, trashes paperwork and head butts officer

It was assault and baa-ttery.

A rampaging goat hopped into a Georgia police officer’s marked cruiser last week before gnawing on paperwork, toppling a beverage and finally head-butting the startled cop to the ground, according to a Facebook post.

The unidentified officer with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office was serving papers on a house at the time and left the door to her vehicle open, according to a playful, viral post from the department.

Officials explained that she made a habit of keeping the door ajar because she’s routinely chased away from homes by angry dogs and occasionally requires speedy access to her cruiser.

While still at the front door of the rural residence, the officer turned and saw that a goat had hopped into her driver’s seat.

She returned to the vehicle ...

Fraternity rager sparks coronavirus cluster at University of New Hampshire

A frat party at the University of New Hampshire attended by more than 100 people who were not wearing masks or social distancing sparked a coronavirus cluster, officials said Monday.

Eleven cases of the coronavirus have been linked to the Aug. 29 rager at the Theta Chi fraternity house, which was attended by students and others, the University’s president, James W. Dean, said in a statement.

He added that the school is investigating the party and will be “pursuing student conduct charges” against the organizers and students who attended.

“The August 29 party is reprehensible and will not be tolerated,” Dean said in the statement.

“Theta Chi is under interim suspension immediately, as will any fraternity/sorority or other student organization that behaves in a similar manner, wh...
