Donald Trump will 'definitely' skip Thursday's GOP debate

Presidential candidate Donald Trump will not attend Thursday's GOP debate.  According to his campaign manager, it’s due to a fight with the network. Trump said he would "most likely" hold a competing event in Iowa during the debate.

"Let's see how much money Fox is going to make on the debate without me, OK?"

Mother pens open letter to saleswoman who body shamed teenage daughter

In Wichita, Kansas, a mother's open letter to a sales woman who body shamed her teenage daughter has gone viral.

Megan Naramore Harris says her daughter was trying on a dress for an upcoming formal when the salesperson walked up to her and said "she needed to wear SPANX."

Needless to say, she was not happy. She posted the note to Facebook with this response:

"I wish I had told you how many girls suffer from poor self image and telling them they need something to make them perfect can be very damaging. Girls of all ages, shapes and sizes are perfect because that is how God made them. If they feel good in a dress, that is all that should matter."

Harris says her daughter is fit and beautiful. "She did not need you telling her that she is not perfect."

Harris hopes the post makes its way to the woman so that she will not offend anyone else.

"You never know what negative or positive thoughts they are thinking about themselves."

Terri Schiavo’s husband is calling a television ad by the super PAC backing  Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush disgusting and exploitative.

According to BuzzFeed News, Michael Schiavo believes Bush is “using his disgraceful intervention in our family’s private trauma to advance his political career shows that he has learned nothing.”

Schiavo says it's simply disgusting that Bush and his super PAC would exploit his wife’s tragedy for what he calls his “crude, political gain.”

During his term as Florida governor, Bush got involved in the case  to try to keep Terri alive.

“He’s proud of the fact that he used the machinery of government to keep a person alive through extraordinary artificial means — contrary to the orders of the court that were based on the courts determination, made over 6 years of litigation, that doing so would be against her wishes."

However, Schiavo says the campaign video shows is that if he ever got his hands on the power of government again, he would do the same thing.

The ad runs on television stations in South Carolina.
