Putin's 'incredible offer,' a global sand crisis and Egypt's Jon Stewart comes to Los Angeles

President Donald Trump called it an "incredible offer" from Russian President Vladimir Putin. Putin offered to allow US investigators to question some Russians about US election hacking, and in exchange, the Kremlin would be allowed to question 11 Americans, including a former US ambassador to Russia.

Now he's hoping for a second act and to make it big in Hollywood.
