Vice President Kamala Harris' increasing frustration and tension with President Joe Biden's inner circle has been laid bare in a new report. Harris and her top aides are frustrated with Biden for defending 'white man' Pete Buttigieg, the transportation secretary, more vigorously than her, and handing her 'no-win' issues like the border crisis, according to a CNN report citing interviews with dozens of current an former Harris aides and White House officials. At the same time, Biden's staff are said to be privately frustrated with Harris over controversies they view as self-inflicted, such as her 'awkward' laughter when asked about visiting the border.
Chicago police watchdog is slammed for recommending hero cop Ella French, 29, be suspended for three days after she was KILLED in the line of duty during a traffic stop in August
Civilian Office of Police Accountability's review of the 2019 botched police raid on the wrong home said half the officers involved should face consequences. They include Officer Ella French who was shot dead in August of this year. The report fails to mention her death and instead recommends French be suspended for three days. The victim of the wrong house raid in February 2019, Anjanette Young, later said that Officer French was the only officer to 'show her dignity or respect' during raid. The report found fault with French's actions during the 2019 raid having failed to activate her body-cam and document detention and search of a man and his car.
Adele tears up as she reveals to Oprah that she reconciled with her alcoholic father before he died of cancer in May and was with him in his final days: Says 'alcohol took my dad from me' and her life has transformed since she gave it up
The 15th Grammy winner told Oprah how she felt embarrassed when she knew her divorce from entrepreneur Simon Konecki was inevitable, but added that Konecki was the most stable person she had known and he had 'saved her life.' The singer wiped away tears as she talked about her reconcilement with her estranged father, shortly before his death in May. 'My dad's absolute lack of presence and effort...But I finally understood that it was the alcohol,' she said.

As part of the surprise, a fan named Quentin brought his unsuspecting partner, Ashley, to the scenario at the Griffith Observatory, where Adele had been concerting celebrities including Gordon Ramsey, Melissa McCarthy, Gabrielle Union and Ellen DeGeneres. 'I need every person to be really quiet, alright? If you make a noise, I'm going to kill you,' the 15th Grammy winner said cheekily as Quentin guided Ashley, who was blindfolded, to the the stage. The British singer was hiding behind the scenario's deemed lights, awaiting for Ashley's 'yes,' to serenate the couple. After Quentin popped the question, Adele emerged from the dark and an evidently dumbfounded Ashley wiped away her shock tears.
Kenosha braces for Rittenhouse verdict: City boards up and 500 National Guard troops wait on standby as divisive murder case goes to the jury TODAY
Residents of Kenosha, Wisconsin are bracing for potential riots as a jury prepares to consider the murder charges against Kyle Rittenhouse, who killed two and shot a third during unrest last summer. By pleading with the judge to allow the jury to consider lesser charges, prosecutors have all but admitted that they failed to prove their top charges against 18-year-old Rittenhouse, who argued self-defense in emotional testimony. The case has become a political flashpoint across the country, with liberals condemning Rittenhouse as a dangerous extremist or racist, though all the victims were white. Conservatives by turn celebrate the teen as a hero of gun rights and self-defense, though he was illegally carrying the weapon as a then-minor.
Central Park rape suspect, 25, showed off his ankle monitor on Instagram before skipping court in Florida and fleeing to New York - where he 'attacked jogger'
'Locked up, they won't let me out,' Paulie Velez, 25, wrote in one of the several photos showing his ankle monitor last month, before fleeing to New York to reportedly continue his crime spree. In Florida, Velez had been charged with kidnapping, battery, and sexual assault, but never appeared in court after agreeing to the terms of a plea deal. He cut off his monitor and fled to New York, where he allegedly committed another sex crime on Thursday in Central Park.
Alec and Hilaria hit Central Park with the kids as Rust crew member sues embattled actor for 'negligence' over accidental shooting death on set
Alec Baldwin and his family (above) were spotted out and about in New York City on Sunday as the embattled actor took time out from dealing with the ongoing fallout over the fatal shooting of a cinematographer on the set of his film Rust last month. Baldwin was spotted with his wife, Hilaria (bottom inset), and their brood during a day trip to Central Park. The couple was joined by two nannies who helped look after the children. Alec and Hilaria both had cups of takeaway coffee while their son was also holding a beverage of some kind. The family gathered around Alec as he sat on a park bench to take a rest. Last week, legal action was taken in connection with the shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins on the Santa Fe, New Mexico set on October 21. The director, Joel Souza, suffered a gunshot wound to the shoulder. The head of lighting on the film filed a lawsuit on Wednesday, alleging negligence that caused him 'severe emotional distress' that will haunt him forever. Serge Svetnoy (seen top inset with Hutchins) said in the suit that the bullet that killed his close friend Hutchins, narrowly missed him, and he held her head as she died.
MSNBC host Tiffany Cross is slammed for saying her trucker brother is at risk because the industry is full of white men who voted for Trump: Claims if more people of color became truckers the roads will be safer
Tiffany Cross, the host of Cross Connection on MSNBC, revealed on Sunday that she worries about her brother in the trucking industry because it predominantly comprises white men over the age of 55 and 'feels like a dangerous industry.' She said most people in that group voted for Trump, and appeared to link that to minority drivers saying they experienced racism on the drive. She also suggested that if there were more 'people of color' in the industry, there would be less aggressive driving. After a clip of the conversation was posted on Twitter, users criticized Cross, left, of unfairly going after the trucking industry and being racist herself.
'Things are better in this country than a year ago': White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain IGNORES cost of living crisis and lauds vaccine rollout to five-year-olds - boasting that US is leading the world
White House chief of staff Ron Klain, left, defended several crises afflicting the Biden administration including inflation, high unemployment and supply chain issues. Recent poll suggested 42 percent of American families believe they 'have not benefited at all' from President Biden's policies. Inflation rose 5.4 percent in the year to September 2021 having been affected by the pandemic, labor shortages and the supply chain bottlenecks. 'We have to continue to work on the other economic problems and continue our work on COVID,' Klain said as he pivoted towards the successful vaccine rollout. In its first week of rollout it's believed up to one million children got vaccinated, inset center.
Pictured: Hero British taxi driver 'who locked suicide bomber in his car' as friends say he only needed stitches and is already HOME: Terror police probing the Liverpool hospital blast arrest three
This is the first picture of David Perry, the taxi driver who apparently locked a suicide bomber in his car after being told to take him to Poppy Day parade in Liverpool on Sunday. Hero Mr Perry only needed stitches after the ordeal and is already home, a family friend told MailOnline, hours after police arrested three suspects and evacuated dozens of houses as part of a terror probe. The source explained Mr Perry was asked by the alleged bomber to go to Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral, but the passenger changed his mind because of road closures and requested a stop at the city's Women's Hospital. As he pulled into the hospital, 'David noticed the man had some kind of light attached to his clothing and was messing around with it. He jumped out and locked the car.' He received stitches to his ear, treatment for 'non-life threatening' cuts and bruises and was discharged at 6:30pm on Sunday.
Aaron Rogers refuses to wear a mask and NFL forces him to give post-game press conference on Zoom - despite him having antibodies from recent COVID infection: Says he is 'tired after a difficult ten days'
NEW Aaron Rodgers was back playing for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. It was his first game since testing positive for COVID-19. The unvaccinated quarterback was at the center of controversy following comments he made about the COVID vaccines. Rodgers decided to hold the press conference over Zoom, left, because it allowed him to remain unmasked without violating league protocols. Unvaccinated players, however, need to distance, wear masks and test daily. Last week, the reigning MVP acknowledged he 'misled' the public about his vaccination status but said that he takes 'full responsibility'. Rodgers chose his words carefully when speaking about the vaccine in August. Instead of saying he was 'vaccinated,' Rodgers said he was 'immunized'. Rodgers came under fire after it emerged he was in fact unvaccinated and that he received a 'homeopathic treatment' to avoid NFL vaccine requirements.
Demarcus George, 27, pictured, left and right, and Mario Waters, 33, both of Little Rock, Arkansas, pleaded guilty to rape and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a 6-year-old, four years after the girl was sent to the hospital with symptoms caused by sexually transmitted diseases. The girl told an FBI investigator she was raped by two men - later determined to be George and Waters - in a hotel room with a curtain in the center and a picture hanging on the wall. Authorities were able to track down the hotel with that description, and found financial records showing the girl's mother rented a room one month after the rape. Investigators also obtained a warrant for blood and urine samples from George and Waters, which showed they had the same sexually transmitted diseases the girl tested positive for. They are expected to be sentenced at a later date.
Princess Mako and 'commoner' husband Kei Komuro arrive in NYC after she gave up her royal title to wed him and move to a '$4,800-a-month one-bed' in Hell's Kitchen
Princess Mako and her new husband Komuri Kei officially began their new life as a married couple in New York, touching down in the Big Apple early on Sunday morning after a 13-hour flight from Tokyo. Mako, 30, the eldest daughter of Crown Prince Fumihito and niece of reigning Emperor Naruhito, tied the knot with university sweetheart Kei Komuro, a commoner, in Tokyo after an eight-year engagement - despite many in their native country not supporting the nuptials. Today, the couple cut casual figures as they were pictured jetting out of Tokyo - with a crowd of spectators and photographers in attendance - bound for the Big Apple. The newlyweds have been living in a modest Tokyo apartment together ahead of the move to New York, where Komuro works as a lawyer at the New Jersey-based law firm Lowenstein Sandler LLP. After arrival at John F. Kennedy International Airport, the young couple was seen leaving the terminal while flanked by a Japanese security detail as well as local police officers. They grabbed their luggage and were then driven to their new home in Manhattan - a luxury one-bedroom rented apartment in Hell's Kitchen. The building (inset) boasts a billiards room, gym, a library curated by Strand Book Store and rooftop deck overlooking the Hudson.
The media snobs who are too-cool-for-Cracker Barrel have no chance of bringing America back together again, writes MEGHAN McCAIN
Last week CNN profiled a middle-class family named the Stotlers and how inflation in Biden's America has impacted their bottom line when it comes to their weekly grocery prices. They are a family of eleven with nine children who revealed that they consume twelve gallons of milk a week. It should have been a piece which focused the American media and twitterati on how quickly and furiously inflation is making an impact on average Americans everyday living expenses. I found nothing particularly controversial when I watched it. I only have one thirteen-month-old child and the amount of whole milk we go through in a week for her would shock you. If you watch the piece it is a pretty straightforward account that follows the Stotler family grocery shopping and how they use coupons to buy low-grade, cheap food for their family.
Poland is braced for major attack by 'weaponized' migrants from Belarus TONIGHT: New column of desperate Middle Eastern refugees is headed to border after some were ARMED by dictator's troops
Polish Border Force guards claim their Belarusian counterparts are issuing the thousands of stranded migrants with instructions, equipment and weapons to force their way into the EU in a major attack tonight. The attack is believed to be planned for frontier at Kuznica, one of two main crossing points from Poland to Belarus. A spokesman for the Polish Border Guard told MailOnline: 'After a 'quiet' night in the vicinity of the camp in Kuznica, we are currently observing that more groups of armed officers of Belarusian services are located in the place. We are noticing a commotion among migrants. There is also a TV broadcast van.' He added: 'Some tents are starting to disappear. Migrants get instructions, equipment and gas from Belarusian services. You can see that the Belarus side is getting ready today for a big attempt at crossing the border. Our forces are ready for action.'

Kate Lease and Adam Kendal, two of the passengers killed when an Island Airways flight crashed in Northern Lake Michigan on Saturday, posted a video of another flight they took over the island just days before. They also used their Instagram page to post updates about their cross-country adventures, and share photos of their two dogs, Frank and Barker who were also killed in the fatal crash. An 11-year-old girl was the only survivor of the fatal crash that also killed her father, Mike Perdue, and an unnamed pilot.
Man who killed daughter's boyfriend for 'selling her into Seattle sex trafficking ring' is 'no hero', grieving family says: They say their son was 'disabled' and 'didn't have the capability to sex traffic anybody'
The family of Andrew Sorensen, a 19-year-old male whose body was recovered from the trunk of a car after being killed and left there for a year by his girlfriend's father, said their son's 'killer' is 'no hero' in a statement released Tuesday. The family's statement follows Washington State Police's report on not being able to 'corroborate veracity' of sex-trafficking claims made by John Eisenman, 60, on Aaronson. Eisenman is the father of Aaronson's then-girlfriend, who remains unknown and who claims she was being sold to sex traffickers for $1,000 last year.
Ex-Chicago Bulls star's 14-year-old daughter who was filmed sucker-punching rival, 15, during youth basketball game was caught throwing punches at different tournament in September
The 14-year-old daughter of former Chicago Bulls star Corey Benjamin (inset) who was filmed sucker-punching an opposing player (left) during a youth basketball game apparently has a history of on-court violence. Another amateur video has emerged showing the girl throwing punches and attacking players during a different tournament game in Carson, California back in September. The incident prompted the organizers of the tournament, a company that goes by the name 'Swoosh,' to ban the girl and her team from competition. 'When I realized that it was associated to the first fight, that I actually witnessed in person, it was devastating just because it's as if this girl is kind of just out of control,' Swoosh director Tisha Mcafee said. Benjamin's daughter has also been banned from Avac United, the organizing group that hosts youth basketball games for kids between the ages of 13 and 16. Benjamin's daughter has not been identified by name because she is a minor. The ban was put in place after Benjamin's daughter sucker-punched 15-year-old Lauryn Ham (seen right with her mother), who was on the opposing team.

Chris Cuomo, 51, sports baseball cap with 'I have issues' slogan for Hamptons coffee run as ratings for his CNN show drop to an all-time low after advising his scandal-hit brother Andrew
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, 50, has been pictured out and about wearing a cap which reads 'I have issues'. It comes as daily viewership for his Prime Time show fall to their lowest level since the show premiered in June 2018. Cuomo's daily 9pm program drew 684,000 total average viewers last week with 156,000 in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54. It is a fraction of the 1.137 million total viewers and 377,000 demo viewers which the show pulled in when it started in June 2018. Cuomo's rating began to decline after his brother, Andrew Cuomo, resigned as governor of New York following accusations of sexual harassment by several women. In August, Cuomo Prime Time was still CNN's highest-rated show with an average of 964,000 viewers.
'Congratulations fellas!' President Biden zoom calls the Irish rugby team with his brother and sister after their emphatic win over New Zealand
Joe Biden and his brother Jimmy, 71, and sister Valerie, 76, video called the Irish Rugby team to congratulate them for their win over New Zealand. 'We're so damn proud of you, really and truly,' the president said while holding a cell phone between his siblings and introducing them to the team. 'When I was down in New Zealand not long ago I was bragging about you guys,' Biden said. 'They almost didn't let me off the island, you know what I mean?'
Transgender woman 'was viciously assaulted and suffered fractured jaw after she was put in a jail cell with three men while sheriff's deputies stood by and watched'
A transgender woman who was arrested in San Diego last year was put in a holding cell with three men against her wishes and then beaten up so badly that she suffered a broken jaw, according to a lawsuit. Kristina Frost alleges in federal court papers that she was a 'book-and-release' detainee at San Diego Central Jail in November of last year. Initially, she was placed in a holding cell alone. 'She was then moved, without any reasonable justification, and against her wishes, to a minimally monitored cell with three men,' according to the lawsuit filed last week in US District Court in the Southern District of California. Frost protested, telling the jailers that her driver's license and other identifying papers indicated she was a woman. At the time she was booked, Frost was wearing 'feminine' clothing, including high-cut shorts and a bra, according to court papers. 'Sadly - and foreseeably - one of the men in the cell viciously attacked Ms. Frost,' according to the lawsuit.
Zoom groom! British woman, 26, reveals she's wed her Detroit-based boyfriend, 24, in an online ceremony - despite NEVER meeting him in real life
Ayse, 26, from Lancaster met her Detroit-based husband Darrin, 24, online during the pandemic. The two began chatting as friends in July 2020 but were soon inseparable and on the phone to each other every night, even with the five-hour time difference. However, when Ayse tried to outwit Covid restrictions to visit Darrin, she was turned away at US borders. The disaster propelled Darrin to propose and the couple wed online in August this year. (Pictured: Ayse with her laptop and her husband Darrin on Facetime. Left, on her wedding day this August. Inset: Darrin in his wedding suit)
Wet and wild! Cow escapes from slaughterhouse and rides a WATERSLIDE to freedom into water park next door
A 700-pound cow destined for slaughter on a cattle ranch 500 miles west of Rio de Janeiro, managed to escape to a nearby open air swimming pool (pictured) and was filmed trotting down a waterslide, the New York Post reports. Incredibly, the slide - designed to hold just 450 pounds - did not buckle under the animal's enormous weight. The cow has since been named Tobogã, which means 'slide' in Portuguese.
Queen Letizia of Spain exudes glamour in an all-black Carolina Herrera ensemble as she heads to the opera in Madrid with King Felipe VI
The Spanish Queen, 49, looked chic in the black ensemble as she joined King Felipe VI for an evening of music at the Royal Theater in Madrid, attending the premiere of the opera 'Partenope.' The mother-of-two wore trousers by Carolina Herrera and a shimmering top by Hugo Boss, pictured. Felipe, right, looked equally sharp in a black suit with a crisp white shirt.
The woman (Pictured left), a member of the Queen's Household Cavalry, appeared to have fainted from the pavement onto the tarmac in front of shocked crowds at the Cenotaph on Whitehall in London, on Sunday. As the troops, who were dressed in full uniform, including the red plume Albert helmet, stood professionally in position ahead of the barriers, the unnamed guard was pictured on the floor. This year saw Remembrance Sunday crowds return to pre-pandemic numbers, however the nation missed the Queen, who was forced to miss the ceremony for the first time in 22 years due to a back injury. Many royals including Prince Charles (Pictured right) and the Duke of Cambridge (middle) were in attendance this morning.
JONATHAN MCEVOY IN SAO PAULO: Ole, ole, ole, ole, Senna, Senna. So the crowd serenaded the Englishman (pictured) wrapped in the flag of Brazil who had just performed a wonder of which their hero - and his - would have been proud. Lewis Hamilton's victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix, the 101st of his career, stands comparison with the finest in his garlanded story. More than that, it ranks among the greatest displays in the history of automobiles. If you think that fanciful, you haven't read Damon Hill's take on the back page of today's paper. 'One of the best drives I have ever seen in Formula One,' he rhapsodised, as Hamilton narrowed his championship deficit to runner-up Max Verstappen from 21 to 14 points. The win was testament to Lewis's belligerence. It told us a lot about him. He is as hard as flint. He is as stubborn as a red wine stain. He is never more dangerous than when cornered. He fought his way out of a council house to reach unsurpassed pinnacles in a white man's game. And here on parade was the same essential inner steel.
