New York (CNN) While TikTok's short-form videos are entertaining, that's "just the sheep's clothing," a Federal Communications Commission official said, and the app should be removed from app stores because of security issues. But a TikTok executive, in a rare interview on CNN's "Reliable Sources" on Sunday, claimed there are no security concerns linked to the hugely successful app. The short-form video app is the most downloaded in the world, beating Instagram with 3.5 billion downloads. Users spend an average of at least 46 minutes a day on the app, sending it storming past its competition.

Bash answered: “But our bodies are our bodies, and women are the ones who get pregnant.

Demonic possession is real. “All these people with these interesting political motives, all teaming up to create content for you to consume.” But Karamo’s outlandish claims don’t stop at devil worship and child sacrifice.

In ever-blue California, Newsom, the son of a state appellate judge, has rebooted from his start as a flashy progressive hero around quieter legislative pushes. "Everybody's got portions of the playbook," Newsom said, comparing DeSantis to other Republicans. DeSantis declined a request for an interview, but those around him say he's happy to have this fight. "Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire," DeSantis campaign spokesman Dave Abrams said. After spending much of the pandemic watching and reading right-wing media, Newsom said he's grown more and more alarmed to see how much is taking root.

Interviewer Dana Bash (a Republican from what I can tell from previous observations) was not very helpful in getting Noem to own her extremist position on abortion.

Noem claims she doesn’t want a nationwide abortion ban, but she’s a Republican. Therefore, she wants a nationwide abortion ban. Noem has been compared to Sarah Palin, but I think she is more disciplined than Palin.

The man accused of killing a young mother Wednesday as she pushed her 3-month-old baby in a stroller on New York’s Upper East Side was remanded without bail Saturday in what prosecutors called a “premeditated execution,” according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office. In a statement prosecutors read in court Saturday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office described the attack as a “premeditated execution” and offered further disturbing details about the case. Before the killing, Argro persuaded Johnson to “meet up with him under the guise that he wanted to give the decedent items for their 3-month-old daughter,” prosecutors said. In the aftermath of those shootings, President Joe Biden late last month signed into law the first major federal gun safety legislation passed in decades. Kathy Hochul signed into law a bill restricting the concealed carry of firearms in locations such as government buildings and schools.
