Senator Kamala [[ COM-uhl-ah ]] Harris is blaming President Trump for the nation suffering the worst from coronavirus. In her first speech as Joe Biden's running mate, she said "This is what happens when we elect a guy who just isn't up for the job." Harris and Biden are now holding an online fundraiser.       President Trump intends to forgive all deferred payroll taxes if he wins another term. He says the money will come from the general fund and won't impact Social Security. This comes after Trump was criticized for his executive action to cut payroll taxes because of the pandemic.        No more sailing this year for Viking Cruises. All ships will stay docked until January because of the pandemic. The company believes that's when the world will be in a better position and international travel less complicated. Most cruise lines have stopped service until November.       A Wisconsin teen convicted in the Slender Man stabbing case isn't getting any time shaved off her sentence in a mental health facility. Morgan Geyser lost her appeal today that she should have been charged as a child and not an adult in 2014. She was 12 when she tried to kill a friend in the woods.       The company that makes the popular Firefox web browser is letting 250 employees go. Mozilla's CEO says he wished they could stay on but the pandemic significantly impacted revenue. All operations in Taiwan are closing as well.       A Star Wars ride at Disney World is open again after a lightning strike shut it down Monday. A guest captured it all on video, saying the lightning bolt appeared to have hit one of the taller mountains inside Galaxy's Edge park. No damage was reported.
