Daily Dose: 8/30/16 Huma Abedin dumps her no-good man

I’ve gotten quite a few angry emails over the years, but never has someone come at me on Instagram over something I said on the radio. I guess I can cross that one off the list, now.

One of the pillars of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is about his wall. He’s going to build it, and apparently Mexico’s going to pay for it, etc. The implication is that President Barack Obama, through his porous policies on immigration, is letting all sorts of people in the country who are either A) “stealing” jobs or B) plotting acts of terror. It’s a dangerous and irresponsible premise, but that’s a discussion for another day. Small problem with that whole construct: Obama has deported more people than any other U.S. president ever has, ABC News reports.

With the Tony Romo situation being caput in Dallas, Dak Prescott is now the starter. Not only will he be the first black man to start at quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys since Quincy Carter, he’s also a rookie. Starting a rookie in the NFL is just something you don’t do unless you absolutely have to, because there’s nothing that can really replicate what the league is like at game-day speed until it happens. And it almost certainly never occurs when said quarterback was the 135th pick in the draft. FiveThirtyEight’s Chase Stuart analyzes exactly how rare it really is.

Anthony Weiner just can’t get right. My man has a serious problem with sending people pictures of his body, to the chagrin of his family and at the cost of his career. Now, it’s costing him his marriage, as well. Why? Because in his latest episode, he managed to include his child in the photograph, which is just too embarrassing to stand for. If you need a refresher course on just how many allegations and pictures there were, ABC News’ J.J. Gallagher has your back. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, doesn’t have time for this foolishness.

The U.S. Open is underway in New York, and on Monday we got a great match. If you’ve been trapped in a world of only Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic for the past say, two years, you might have missed the fact that there’s an 18-year-old kid from Maryland who is a beast. Yesterday, Francis Tiafoe nearly outlasted John Isner in the first round, but it didn’t end up happening. That match was a thriller, but if you want to learn more about him, check out this feature from 2014 about where Tiafoe came from.

Coffee Break: Few things are scarier than clowns, but this story takes the cake. Apparently, somewhere in South Carolina, there is a band of clowns living in the woods, trying to lure children with candy and money. The clown factor is almost the least scary thing about the whole situation.

Snack Time: The kid who was caught imitating a doctor has been arrested again, but this time, the story’s not so funny. This young man clearly has a problem and needs someone or something to help him out with it.

Dessert: Nardwuar vs. Eric Andre. Wow.
