A pregnant woman is still recovering from a brown recluse spider bite that happened over a month ago. Kendall Butler was woken by the bite. She killed the spider and took it to the hospital with her immediately. >> Read more trending news Doctors were able to stop the infection and keep her unborn child safe by using antibiotics. However, she does have a large area of skin on her stomach that died because of the spider’s venom. Doctors said they don’t want to fully treat the wound yet because of the baby. Originally, the plan was to evacuate the wound and then look into skin grafts once the child is born. Now, Butler’s doctors say the wound needs to be evacuated sooner. They will wait until July 10 when the baby is seven weeks from the due date. Experts believe she’ll be strong enough by then to be born early, just in case anything happens during the procedure. A Green Country entomologist said that Oklahoma’s mild winter caused more dangerous insects to come out early. Experts say people should take precautions against insects while outside, but that there isn’t much to be done indoors but have homes sprayed. The Centers for Disease Control says that even though people fear bug spray with DEET is bad for pregnant women, it’s actually recommended with the same precautions as those who are not pregnant or lactating.

Wow. Don’t mess with a pregnant lady or her purse. A woman in North Carolina is being charged with assault with a deadly weapon after chasing a man down with her SUV who she says stole her purse! Witnesses say they saw the man, identified as Robert Raines, rummaging through Christine Braswell’s car in a Walmart parking lot. “When I walked out of Walmart, he had her purse and was pulling all of her stuff out,” Blake Bennett tells WCMH-TV. “Then me and my friend told him to put it down and ‘What are you doing?'” Braswell showed up and the man took off running with her purse. But she wasn’t about to let him get away. “Me being five months pregnant, I chased a little ways then come back, jumped in the car, threw it in gear and come across the curb and ran him over,” said Braswell. Raines suffered minor injuries and is now charged with felony breaking and entering. (VIDEO)
A day after vowing to limit the revolving door that sees top federal officials and lawmakers in Congress move into lobbying jobs in Washington, D.C., Donald Trump said today he would press the country to amend the Constitution and institute term limits for members of the U.S. House and Senate.
“The time for Congressional term limits has finally arrived,” Trump said, arguing it would help end government corruption. Trump would limit members to 6 years in the U.S. House (3 terms) and 12 years in the U.S. Senate (2 terms).
“Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special interest dealing must and will come to an end,” Trump said, as he vowed to totally change the status quo in the nation’s capital.
“We’re going to drain the swamp in Washington, D.C.,” Trump said at his first Tuesday campaign stop in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Along with hitting Hillary Clinton over her emails while Secretary of State, Trump also once more lit into the news media, accusing the press of being part of what he says is an effort to rig the election against him.
Trump: "I think the media is trying to discourage our people from going out to vote"
“This is an election about truth – and you’re not going to get it from the dishonest media,” Trump said, as he accused the press of not reporting on a host of stories that might hurt Democrats and Hillary Clinton.
He cited charges in recent days that national Democrats were paying people to show up and cause trouble at Trump rallies.
“The protesters are paid a lot of money by the DNC,” Trump said. “It was barely covered by the media, but it’s all over the internet,” as Trump supporters demanded more attention on a new video from the group Project Veritas:
“Can you imagine? That’s a big story,” Trump said. “Hardly covered by the media,” as the crowd at his Tuesday rally booed.
Meanwhile, as Trump again made the case that he might lose the election because of voter fraud led by the Democratic Party, President Obama rebuked Trump from the White House, telling Trump to ‘stop whining.’
Not all Republicans have been on board with Trump’s charge that the media is working with Democrats and elections officials to make sure Trump loses.
“This election is not being rigged,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who pushed back at a debate against Trump’s talk.
Trump though says Republicans who make that argument are simply wrong.
“We have even Republicans – ‘oh that’s such a terrible thing to say,’ – well, take a look at Philadelphia at what’s been going on, take a look at Chicago, take a look at St. Louis,” as Trump argues the GOP has been systematically undermined by voter fraud in those cities, though there is little evidence to back up his charge.
