Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris told the Detroit NAACP Fight for Freedom Fund Dinner Sunday that Attorney General Bill Barr "lied" during testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

"We had just recently a United States attorney general who lied to Congress and lied to you and is clearly more interested in representing the president than the American people."

Why it matters: The California senator is among several leading Democrats to have called for Barr's resignation over his handling of the Mueller report. A C-SPAN video circulating on Twitter of Harris questioning Barr had been viewed almost 4.9 million times by 11:30 pm ET Sunday.

  • In her NAACP speech, Harris also accused President Trump of "trying to make America hate."

The other side: President Trump singled Harris out for criticism last week, as he said congressional Democrats who grilled Barr were "just looking for political points."

President Trump will try to break Joe Biden's composure by going after his son Hunter and other family members in tonight's first presidential debate — a campaign source tells Axios "nothing will be off the table" — while Biden plans to stick to the economy, coronavirus and new revelations about how Trump avoided paying taxes.

Driving the news: Biden and Trump are set to debate at 9pm ET at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and it will be moderated by Fox News' Chris Wallace.

Massive layoffs hit Disney theme parks

Disney is laying off 28,000 workers at its theme parks and experiences and consumer products divisions, the company said in a statement Tuesday.

Why it matters: The coronavirus pandemic has forced the company to close its California theme parks and limit attendance at re-opened parks elsewhere around the U.S. Around 67% of the 28,000 laid off workers are part-time employees, according to Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney's parks, experiences and products division.
