BY TRACY PFEIFFER ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy A member of the Orange County Republican Party in California is facing calls for her resignation over an email she sent depicting President Barack Obama as a baby chimpanzee. REPORTER, VOICE OVER: “She says she meant it to be ‘funny.’ This picture showing President Obama as part of a family of apes was emailed by Orange County Republican official and Tea Party member Marilyn Davenport. Along with the picture, she wrote, ‘Now you know why no birth certificate.’”(KNBC) Other GOP officials -- including the chair of the Orange County Republican Party -- have been quick to condemn the email, calling it quote- “dripping with racism.” After OC Weekly broke the story, Davenport defended herself by saying it was just a joke, and later sent an apology email, saying... “I simply found it amusing regarding the character of Obama and all the questions surrounding his origin of birth … In no way did I even consider the fact he's half black when I sent out the email. In fact, the thought never entered my mind until one or two other people tried to make this about race." The email goes on to compare the picture with similar images of George W. Bush during his presidency -- but in a statement, a member of the California chapter of NAACP explains, they’re two very different issues. REPORTER, READING TEXT: “History has shown that blacks have been depicted in this fashion in the past to degrade African Americans as not human. Anyone who does not know this history is either ignorant, had their head buried in the sand, or as we at the NAACP believe, simply racist.”(KABC) Finally, a writer for the Baltimore Sun says, he might be able to give Davenport some benefit of the doubt since she was caught up in the birther conspiracy aspect of the picture -- but prefers she didn’t try to sugarcoat it. “...if she's so out of touch with reality that she couldn't see how picturing the country's first African-American president as a chimp could be considered racist, she should resign due to transparent stupidity. I'd almost rather her say: ‘Yes, it's a racial joke. But sometimes racial humor is funny’ … At least that would be honest.” Members of the Orange County Republican Party say they’ve reviewed the bylaws and cannot force Davenport to resign, but will continue to ask for her voluntary resignation.

Monologue: "I find it somewhat stunning and bewildering that there are idiots out there calling me a liar when I talk about politics, namely our beloved president Barack Obama! They call me a liar when I talk about Islam or whatever other issue I may be talking about. Is this the face of a liar? I know I need a little shave but that doesn't make me a liar! Well, to put all of that to rest, I invested quite a bit of money, at my own personal expense, on a little machine called 'The Truth-O-Meter.' Oh, you've heard of this. I've seen this on Fox News and other talk shows, news shows...whatever you want to call them. This cost me a lot of money! We're going to put it to test! Obviously, it'll rate everything I say. And if I lie, it'll call me on it! Let's open up the Truth-O-Meter here, shall we? Here it is! This sucker cost me quite a bit of change here! But just to prove to you that I'm not a liar, I'm going to put it to use. Alright, here we go! We'll start off with an obvious statement: JORGE P. SOUSA IS AN ASSHOLE!-The green light's still on! So, there you go! The Truth-O-Meter thinks I'm an asshole! Let's try another obvious one: BARACK OBAMA IS A GREAT PRESIDENT!-(Buzzer) There you go! The Truth-O-Meter does not consider Barack Obama a great president! Alright, let's bring it back to zero...ground zero, if you will! HEALTHCARE...OBAMACARE WILL SAVE US ALL!- (Buzzer) There you go! GAY MARRIAGE IS A GOOD THING!- (Buzzer) So we know it works! I'm not a liar! Going to keep on trying. This can be a lot of fun if you let it!...Back to the Truth-O-Meter overhere! LADY GAGA IS A LOON!- The green light's still on! ONA DAY I WILL BE A MILLIONAIRE!- (Buzzer) MICHELLE OBAMA IS SEXAY!- (Buzzer) Bring it back to start overhere. Let's see. So far everything I've told is the truth! And when I lied intentionally, it called me on it. Let's try this one: THE TRUTH-O-METER SUCKS!- (Buzzer) Alright...another one! RONALD REAGAN WAS THE GREATEST PRESIDENT EVER!!!!- Ohhh yes, I told you this was fun! Let's try a couple more overhere: (Let's see.) JORGE P. SOUSA IS SEXAY!- (Buzzer) OO, I can see smoke coming out on that one...on that question...oh boy! Perhaps we're forcing the Truth-O-Meter a little bit too much overhere! Oh, the Truth-O-Meter agrees with that! Well, screw you Truth-O-Meter! Alright, one last question...or a couple more questions, let's see, just to prove that I'm telling you the truth! BARACK OBAMA IS THE 44TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!- Well, it's still green! Alright, here's the big one: BARACK OBAMA IS A U.S. CITIZEN AND ELIGIBLE TO BE PRESIDENT!- (Truth-O-Meter explodes!)"

BY ERIK SHUTE AND HARUMENDHAH HELMY You're watching breaking headline news analysis from Newsy This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know. In world news — a 6.6 magnitude aftershock rattled northeast Japan earlier today. This, as the country marks a month after the devastating earthquake and tsunami disasters. CNN has more, reporting that the aftershocks were near the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. “We don’t have an exact location but I can tell you that there has been an impact on the nuclear plant. According to TEPCO, in public statements they’ve just made to reactors 1, 2 and 3. They need the power in order to keep the water pumping and keep the cores cool. They’ve also had to evacuate all the workers of the plant.” Still in world news — Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s government has OKd a peace plan offered by the African Union. The plan reportedly includes an immediate ceasefire. Leaders from the union are now in talks with rebels in Benghazi. Al Jazeera has more on the rebels’ concerns. "...there's clearly a question over what people think the motivation behind the African Union visit is. Whether it's a genuine attempt at conflict resolution. Or, as they certainly believe here, whether it's an attempt by people who have close economic and political ties to Gaddafi to try and shore him up, offer him some legitimacy and making him appear statesman like." In U.S. news — President Barack Obama is set to unveil his long-term plan to cut the nation’s deficit. KARE has more. “The president is expected to call for cuts in defense, medicare and medicaid spending as well as higher taxes on Americans making over $250,000 a year. But even before those words are out of his mouth, Republicans are saying the president’s plan will have a bad effect on the economy. The president raised taxes $800 billion, he’s calling for a new 1.5 trillion in tax increases. You slow down economic growth.” Still in the U.S. -- Donald Trump won’t rest until he’s seen President Barack Obama’s birth certificate. After reigniting the conversation this week, Republicans and former reality TV stars have show support in his search -- namely Sarah Palin. But Good Morning America discovers some inconsistencies in their argument. REPORTER: Donald trump was on TV again with his relentless round-the-clock questioning of President Barack Obama. Now the efforts seem to have won a partial convert. Mainly Sarah Palin on Fox News.” PALIN: “I appreciate that the Donald wants to spend his resources in getting to the bottom of something..." REPORTER: “But rewind just two months. In February, this was her response when asked if she thought it was worth questioning the president's citizenship.” PALIN: “I don't. I think it's distracting. It gets annoying.” REPORTER: “Now she seems decidedly less annoyed." In the tech world -- not willing to shell out your life savings for Adobe’s creative applications? Well, now software company is ready to let comsumers rent its programs at a monthly price. CNET reports users can rent the software with a 12 month subscription or skip the commitment and pay month-to-month but at a higher price. Prices range from $29 per month on single apps to $199 for its entire set. CNET adds renting is rarely financially advantageous, and will probably have little effect on software cracking, but consumers “have a long history of paying for convenience and being attracted to small monthly sums over the monolithic initial payout.” 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed Get more multisource video news analysis from Newsy Transcript by Newsy

BY ALYSSA CARTEE AND ALISON SCHUTZ You're watching multisource U.S. news analysis from Newsy In a race that has yet to begin, Donald Trump is in first place. The Donald leads among GOP would-be presidential hopefuls. Maybe, because of that, not everyone in the Grand Old Party is cheering him on. Prominent conservatives like commentator Charles Krauthammer have questioned the seriousness of a Trump campaign -- going so far as to call him the GOP’s Al Sharpton. That's led some political analysts to conclude -- that’s because the Republican establishment perceives a threat. NBC reports Trump’s opponents have either ignored him or played nice. But correspondent Savannah Guthrie says he just doesn’t cut it for everyone. GUTHRIE: “...other prominent conservatives have not held back, saying his flip-flops on the issues and insistence on questioning the president's place of birth rob him of any credibility.” ROVE: “Let him get his attention on ‘The Apprentice,’ but I don't think he's doing the things necessary to be taken seriously by the American people.” Politico reports the fiscally conservative activist group Club for Growth has also been on the attack -- saying Trump’s economic policy isn’t even conservative. But the article quotes a former Trump advisor as saying the attacks won’t stop his momentum. “The group has devoted two days to striking the New York developer, first accusing him of being a ‘liberal’ before turning to his use of eminent domain laws in his real estate deals. It's causing some raised eyebrows about why an undeclared potential candidate has become such a target for the powerful group.” But The New Republic’s Ed Kilgore doesn’t think Republican efforts to downplay Trump’s candidacy will work. “The Republican establishment ... launched an all-out effort to tar him. … But the truth is that their effort may be a lost cause … GOP voters' hunger for radicalism is so great that it can be filled by essentially anybody. Kill off Trump's candidacy and the demand will remain …” Trump seems nonplussed by the negativity. He has already said if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination - he’ll consider running as an Independent.

BY ALISON ARCHER You're watching multisource entertainment news analysis from Newsy Donald Trump is as mad as the Soup Nazi at Jerry Seinfeld. Seinfeld canceled his appearance at a Trump family benefit because of the Donald’s rants over President Obama’s birth certificate. E! reports, the presidential hopeful is P.O.’ed. “When Trump got word the star wouldn’t attend his family’s benefit, he went off on the comic writing ‘You should be ashamed of yourself’, reports the New York Post. Then Donald gets personal, turning from the charity gig to Seinfeld’s own foray into reality TV. ‘What I do feel badly about is that I agreed to do, and did, your failed show The Marriage Ref. I thought it was absolutely terrible'." A Philadelphia Daily News writer claims it’s not the cancelation itself that has Trump’s hair messed up. It’s the reason behind it. “The benefit isn't until Sept. 13, so it's not as if Jerry left them in the lurch without a headliner - Trump has already gotten former ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ contestant Bret Michaels to pinch hit. He [Seinfeld] did something worse. He bruised Trump's ego.” New York’s WNYW calls it a clash between two New York City titans. But it reports reaction from some who see a bigger picture. REPORTER: “His son says the show will go on.” ERIC TRUMP: “You know again, disappointing approach. Politics should have nothing to do with charity.” WOMAN: “Show respect. Don’t you think?" REPORTER: “Show respect for the charity?” WOMAN: “For the charity because St. Jude is a big, big thing for the kids especially. You know the kids. And that’s the thing that we should be worrying about nowadays, kids.” Seinfeld has reportedly still made contributions to Eric Trump’s foundation and St. Jude’s. But the Telegraph says... “This is the first sign of celebrity backlash to The Donald’s improbable but high-profile flirtation with the Republican presidential nomination.” So what do you think? Could the Don use a little “serenity now” and let it go? Or should Kramer’s neighbor should have stuck it out for the kids? 'Like' Newsy on Facebook for updates in your news feed.
