Amid all-day post- election coverage – and after the Trump campaign said it would request a recount in Wisconsin – Al Gore, who lost his recount battle in the 2000 election, tweeted, “In America, no one person or political party can alter the unassailable principle that the rule of law prevails.

Ruth Wilson left her role in Showtime’s “The Affair” ahead of the fifth and final season because there were things “she didn’t feel safe about,” the actress told Stylist.

I did have a voice. I did stand up for myself. There was a situation on ‘The Affair’ where things didn’t feel right, and I dealt with them, and I managed to protect myself.”
