When Hurricane Michael was bearing down on the Florida Gulf Coast, local officials in this small town (population 21,000) decided to bring their families to the building housing the police station to ride out the storm.

Incredibly, he said, not a single person who took refuge inside the structure, which was functioning as an emergency operations center during the storm, was injured.

Judge Andrew Napolitano: Trump and the victory for freedom of speech

Friday 08:05 GMT

James Madison, who drafted the Bill of Rights, was careful to refer to speech as "the" freedom of speech so as to underscore the Framers' unambiguous belief that free speech is pre-political.

Earlier this week, a federal judge in Los Angeles ruled that Daniels' efforts to use the courts to punish the president for his exercising the freedom of speech were frivolous. Daniels claims that she and Trump had a consensual sexual encounter in a Lake Tahoe hotel room in 2006, shortly after Trump's youngest son, Barron, was born.

Trump calls Stormy Daniels 'Horseface' in a tweet – Why has this kind of insult become the new normal?

Thursday 02:25 GMT

After a federal judge dismissed adult film actress Stormy Daniels’ defamation suit against him, President Trump tweeted Tuesday: "Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer in the Great State of Texas."

Trump's Stormy Daniels complex

Thursday 09:56 GMT

Now we have a president who is fascinated by large fish, terrified of germs, addicted to McDonald's and social media, a teetotaling misogynist commander in chief who has appeared in a Playboy video and has had public arguments about the dimensions of his penis with more than one person, including a sitting Republican senator.

The real danger for Trump was simply that the hush money payment arranged by Michael Cohen to cover up Trump's alleged affair with a porn star would be considered an illegal federal campaign contribution and thus grounds for the former's impeachment at the hands of a Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.
