'Law & Order SVU' Star Mariska Hargitay Endorses Clinton
Actress Mariska Hargitay, who stars in "Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit," has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in an op-ed for Elle.com. She called Clinton the "Law & Order," a moniker Donald Trump has assigned himself.
Hargitay said that she is often asked how to get involved in ending sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse, since these issues are the focus of "Special Victim's Unit." "We need a president ... who will not only keep these issues at the forefront of domestic and international policy, but also will hold out a vision for a future free from these crimes," she wrote.
Hargitay told readers she "cannot urge you strongly enough to stand with Hillary," adding, "And yes, Hillary, in case you were wondering, this makes you the "Law & Order" candidate."
Trump Promises to Accept Election Results 'If I Win'
Donald Trump pledged on Thursday to "totally accept" the results of the 2016 election "if I win," further breaking with precedent in American politics.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to make a major announcement today," Trump said at a rally in Ohio. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election — if I win."
During the final debate on Wednesday, Trump refused to say if he will accept the outcome of the election, saying "I will keep you in suspense." Several prominent Republicans, including 2008 GOP nominee John McCain, have criticized Trump over the comment.
Trump called on Clinton to "resign from the race" over claims that she was given debate questions ahead of time.
Trump in May: I Don't Call System Rigged Anymore 'Because I Won'
Donald Trump has a well-recorded history of suggesting that the electoral process is rigged — but he's also dismissed those complaints after winning a contest he'd previously derided.
At a May 2016 rally in Charleston, WV, shortly after he secured enough delegates to become the presumptive Republican nominee, Trump mused on his past claims of a "rigged system" within the GOP primary.
"Now I don't say it anymore because I won," Trump said. "Ok. It's true. You know now I don't care. I don't care."

Wednesday night's debate was more civil and policy-focused than previous match-ups, but Trump generated controversy by refusing to unequivocally accept the results on Election Day. "I will keep you in suspense," he said.

Sen. Barbara Boxer Says Donald Trump 'Can Go No Lower'
"Donald Trump goes so low," California Sen. Barbara Boxer told MSNBC's Thomas Roberts in response to reports that Trump may invite more Bill Clinton accusers to the final debate. Trump's confirmed guests include President Obama's half brother and the mother of an American killed at the 2012 Benghazi attack.
Boxer, who supports Clinton, accused Trump of trying to break the Democratic nominee's heart, politicizing Benghazi tragedy, and asking Russia to hack his opponent's emails instead of focusing on the American people.
"And bless Hillary Clinton, she's listened to Michelle Obama — You go low, we go high," Boxer said. She does not believe Clinton will be rattled by Trump's guest list because "she knows what's at stake."
"This man can go no lower, but he keeps doing it. We're going to have to open up the ground, it's getting so low."
The Trump campaign released an ad on Wednesday that slams Hillary Clinton on border policy.
Titled "Laura," the ad is a testimonial from a woman named Laura Wilkerson, whose teenage son was killed by an immigrant who entered the United States unlawfully.
"The man who murdered Joshua is an illegal alien and he should not have been here," Wilkerson said in the ad. "Hillary Clinton's border policy is going to allow people into the country just like the one that murdered my son."
Trump national policy director Stephen Miller echoed Wilkerson's sentiment and linked the death to President Obama's policies.
"Had our laws been enforced, Josh would be alive today," Miller said in a statement. "Mothers all over this country have lost their children because this Administration prioritizes special interests over the lives of Americans. Clinton has pledged to go even further than Obama on dismantling immigration law."
The ad is set to air in Florida, Iowa, Maine, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Eminem Goes After Trump in New Song 'Campaign Speech'
Eminem is weighing in on the 2016 Election with his new song "Campaign Speech."
The nearly eight-minute long track touches on wide range of topics, referencing everything from Donald Trump to Colin Kaepernick to George Zimmerman.
The rapper doesn't address the current political environment until around the four-minute mark where he goes after Trump, "Consider me a dangerous man/ But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/ You say Trump don't kiss ass like a puppet?/ 'Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?/ And that's what you wanted?/ A f****n' loose cannon who's blunt with his hand on the button/ Who doesn't have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!"
The rapper also takes aim at the candidate's supporters. "Run the faucet / I'm a dunk a bunch of Trump supporters underwater."
