The first 100 days of President Donald Trump's time in office have been marked by near-daily controversies, from surprise allegations to early morning tweet storms, NBC News reports.

They started right out of the gate, as White House press secretary Sean Spicer used his first press briefing to chide the media for "shameful" reporting about the size of the crowd at Trump's inauguration the day before, despite photos showing a much smaller turnout than President Barack Obama got in 2009.

The next day, senior Trump adviser Kellyanne told NBC News' Chuck Todd that Spicer's statement wasn't false, he just gave "alternative facts," a phrase that quickly went viral.

Then there were controversial policies, like the travel ban that federal judges have blocked, the Russia-election investigation — plus Trump's allegation that "Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower" — and more.

<![CDATA[Abigail Breslin Explains Why She Didn't Report Rape]]>Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:41:37 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/abigailbreslin1_1200x675.jpg

Actress Abigail Breslin is opening up about why she didn't report being raped by someone she was in a relationship with.

Breslin says in an Instagram post that she "was in complete shock and total denial." She says she didn't want to view herself as a "victim," so she pretended it never happened. She adds that she was in a relationship with the person who raped her and she "feared not being believed."

The 21-year-old responded to one commenter by revealing that she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder a year and a half ago. She says she's made progress but still struggles.

Breslin stars in ABC's upcoming musical remake of "Dirty Dancing" next month.

<![CDATA[World's Last Male Rhino Getting Help From Tinder Dating App]]>Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:44:38 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/181*120/lastmalewhiterhinosingle_1200x675.jpg

There's just one male northern white rhino left in the world, and he's now on the Tinder dating app as wildlife experts try to keep his species alive.

"I don't mean to be too forward, but the fate of the species literally depends on me," the rhino's Tinder profile says. "I perform well under pressure."

The campaign called "The Most Eligible Bachelor in the World," by a Kenyan wildlife conservancy and the dating app, focuses on the rhino named Sudan.

The 43-year-old and his last two female companions are unable to breed naturally because of issues that include old age.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy and the app aim to raise $9 million for research into breeding methods, including in-vitro fertilization, in an effort to save the species from extinction.

"We partnered with Ol Pejeta conservancy to give the most eligible bachelor in the world a chance to meet his match," said Matt David, head of communications and marketing at Tinder. "We are optimistic given Sudan's profile will be seen on Tinder in 190 countries and over 40 languages."

Sudan lives at the conservancy, protected by guards around the clock, with the two females, Najin and Fatu.

"The plight that currently faces the northern white rhinos is a signal to the impact that humankind is having on many thousands of other species across the planet," said Richard Vigne, the conservancy's chief executive officer. "Ultimately, the aim will be to reintroduce a viable population of northern white rhino back into the wild, which is where their true value will be realized."

<![CDATA[Dead Wisc. Inmate Was Denied Water for 1 Week: Prosecutor]]>Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:27:07 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/jail_generic_bars.jpg

Milwaukee County Jail officers cut off an inmate's water for seven consecutive days before the man died of dehydration, prosecutors say.

Assistant District Attorney Kurt Bentley told jurors at an inquest Monday that Terrill Thomas was mentally unstable and unable to ask for help before he died in his cell in April 2016, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Thomas had been placed in solitary confinement after he used a mattress to flood his cell in another jail unit.

The jury will issue a verdict on whether criminal charges are warranted in Thomas' death. The jury's recommendation is advisory.

Separately, Thomas' children have filed a federal civil suit, saying their father's treatment by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and his staff amounts to torture.

<![CDATA[Thieves Nab $24,000 in Apple Products From North Bay Store]]>Tue, 25 Apr 2017 07:04:19 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/4-25-17-corde-madera-applestore.jpg

Five young men on Monday managed to nab roughly $24,000 in Apple products from a company store in Corte Madera, according to police.

The group of suspects ran into the store located at the Village Shopping Center around 8 p.m. and swiftly grabbed 17 iPhones, two computers and three iPads, according to Central Marin Police Authority Sgt. Grady Joseph.

A patrol officer happened to be in the area at the time the robbery call came in and responded immediately, but the suspects managed to slip out of the store's back exit, Joseph said.

The store was closed at the time of the heist, but the doors were still open because shoppers were wrapping up their purchases, Joseph said.

Police on Tuesday will comb through surveillance footage in hopes of finding any helpful information.

The Nasdaq composite jumped above 6,000 for the first time ever Tuesday morning as markets continued a rally that began Monday, CNBC reported.

The Dow Jones industrial average also rose more than 200 points at the open, nearing the 21,000-point mark it first crossed in March. The S&P 500 advanced 0.5 percent as well.

McDonalds, Caterpillar, 3M and Dupont posted strong earnings before the opening bell. "That's a good sign that corporate America is on a renewed path toward growth," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at First Standard Financial.

The major U.S. stock indexes had soared on Monday on the strength of centrist Emmanuel Macron winning the first round of the French presidential election.
