"the new york times" first reporting the change, indicating flynn could be working with prosecutors. >> lawyers on trump's legal team say that's not necessarily the case and the change is not entirely unexpected. this comes weeks after cnn reported flynn was worried about the possible legal exposure faced by his son, michael flynn jr. >> witnesses interviewed by
2:02 am
mueller's team say they have asked about flynn's son's business dealings. people acting as agents for foreign entities are legally required to disclose those relationships of which flynn is accused of having done. >> president trump is at mar-a-lago where he's celebrating thanks giving. president trump has a packed schedule next week. on the holiday he took time to thank the troops and praise himself. senior white house correspondent jeff zeleny filed this report from west palm beach. >> reporter: president trump spent thanksgiving at his marc mar-a-lago resort. the president delivered a message thanking them for their service as most commanders in chief have done. he went on to visit a coast guard station not far from his resort. he talked about the good work the coast guard has done
2:03 am
throughout the hurricane season in this country and in puerto rico. also gave some praise to himself for the condition of the country. >> i told them, our country is doing great. you folks are fighting so hard and working so hard. and it's nice you're working for something that's really starting to work. we've cut back so much on regulation and all the waste and all the abuse and the stock market on friday hit the all-time high. the highest it's ever been. and that means your 401(k)s and all of the things you have. whether it's -- even if you're in the military. you have a country that's really starting to turn. >> the president also taking time for a few hours on the golf course at his golf course in west palm beach and having dinner with his family at mar mar-a-la mar-a-lago. he will be talking with his
2:04 am
advisers and others as he prepares for a big week ahead next week. the big vote in the senate on the tax plan. so many other things on the agenda in december. the president will also be enjoying a little bit more time of this respite before returning to washington on sunday. >> jeff, thanks for that. senator al franken is offering a new apology in response to the most recent accusation of sexual harassment he faces. the minnesota democrat was seeking forgiveness after a woman said he grabbed her rear while taking this photo with her at the minnesota state fair in 2010. it's the first claim of improper touching after franken took office. >> he said, identify met tens of thousands of people and taken thousands of photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. some people have found my greegtz or embraces for a hug inappropriate and i respect their feelings about that.
2:05 am
franken has already apologized to a radio anchor who said he forcibly kissed her. you can see that picture there, appeared to grope her in 2006 when he was a comedian. >> joining us to discuss the day's news, for the first time washington examiner commentary writer, beck adams. >> thanks for having me. >> we have to ask about this news coming about michael flynn, should we read into the fact that his lawyers will no longer work with president trump's team? >> we don't know exactly where this is going. as you mentioned, this could be an indication he might plead guilty. it could be an indication he's working with mueller's team. at this moment we don't know exactly what it means. all we don is flynn is not in the clear, obviously, in that he has been in this precarious situation since being a member
2:06 am
of the transition team. he is actually the reason we're looking at this investigation because of what he told mike pence about his conversations and the payments he took from turkey. right now we don't know him breaking off from the white house signals anything worse for him. we do know that he's not any closer to being in the clear about anything. at this moment it's one of those things where we need to hold fire and see where it goes from here. the indications don't look good. i think that's the best we can say. >> it doesn't look good and another distraction for this white house that has to answer for a lot of things that don't have anything to do with the problem at hand. >> flynn was supposed to be one of the top guys coming in, someone trump leaned on a lot during the election. since then flynn has become this painful, searing migraine, basically. at this point i don't think the white house shakes him. they don't shake anything they have done and flynn jr. has been
2:07 am
drawn into this and i don't know what painkiller it can take to get rid of this. >> the president is using thanksgiving day to taut his own leadership and own successes. when you heard him yesterday he was talking about a stock market that had a record high, unemployment at 17-year low. once again, in true to form, he takes credit for all of that, even though all of this began -- this it is the eighth year for rally for stocks. the president talks about people's 401(k)s, half of americans don't have a 401(k), the people who voted for him don't feel this, they were in the same situation as they were at the end of the obama administration and he starts to lose that message? >> i think the people who might not feel what he's talking about, i don't know if they'll necessarily blame him for it. that's something we'll see not just this year but next year and through a lot of his administration that people feeling the economic pinch aren't necessarily going to
2:08 am
blame him for it. one thing he's good at is distancing himself for blame. we see that the way legislation doesn't exactly move the way he wants in the white house -- pardon me, in congress. he's very quick to sign blame where things go. he's very quick as we saw in his thanksgiving mess aage to claim victory where he believes it is. trump, watching his message yesterday, he's really good at working a room. for a lot of us, if we're not there with him, sometimes it seems silly, crass. a good example is when he was doing tpaper towel tossing. people were laughing, it was kind of funny. he jokingly picked up a can of chicken soup and going to pretend to do it. he's really good at working a room. it's a good example, i can bring up -- the howard dean scream. everyone there said it was totally normal, for us hearing it on television it didn't come across well.
2:09 am
likewise, his message, he's a businessman, all about branding, his image. he'll take credit for the stock market. if he >> that howard dean scream echoes in eternity on youtube. a cringe-worthy moment. the president said something talking to the troops, specifically him taking a swipe at the previous administration and then taking credit for isis. >> the fight against isis, it's coming our way. it's coming our way. a big, big difference. they say we've made more progress against isis than they did in years of the previous administration. and that's because i'm letting you do your job. >> so, the president not only talking about tax reform but the stock market, the shortcomings,
2:10 am
from his perspective, of the previous administration, obamacare. why include all of that in message to troops on thanksgiving. >> trump is touting himself as a businessman. you go into a boardroom, you don't just say hey, here's one business deeshlgs you talk about it, you list up all of your credentials, look at what i'm doing for the world, look at what i'm doing for you. it is a cheerleading speech for the troops, which we would expect from the president on thanksgiving day. he's not going to go in, thins are rough, there's a russian investigation, my polling is horrible. it's all rah rah rah inspect he's saying things he's taking a victory lap are things he can't necessarily claim victory but he's going to do it anyway. this is an old-school businessman and part of the
2:11 am
marketing technique he does. >> beckett adams, thank you for coming on board so early. >> thanks for having me. a bit of sad news to pass along. the u.s. navy is ending their search for three sailors who went missing after a crash off okinawa, japan. eight people were, fortunately, rescued and are in good condition aboard the carrier. the navy is withholding the names of the three sailors missing until their family members can be notified. officials say the cause of the crash is still being investigated. the suspect in the fatal shooting of a texas state trooper is now in custody. authorities say the texas department of safety officer damon allen was killed during a highway traffic stop on thanksgiving. necessity say he was returning to his patrol vehicle when the suspect fired at him multiple times with a rifle. the alleged gunman identified as

black friday is upon us. one of the busiest shopping dates in the year and the transitional start of the shopping season, at it seems to get earlier and earlier. many shoppers started hitting the store on thanksgiving day to avoid the black frenzy season. this could be the biggest shopping season for some american retailers. first, we want to go to live outside a target store outside jersey city. doesn't look like that are that many people out there. >> it's amazing, too. this idea of black friday, this tradition has certainly evolved over time. this morning those massive crowds aren't outside the store. a couple reasons for that. many crowds came yesterday so some of those door-busting deals, many customers came yesterday. as you mentioned, some of those steals got earlier and earlier. used to be midnight black friday, that quickly became
2:19 am
thanksgiving evening so that's several reasons why we aren't seeing the massive crowds we're accustomed to seeing outside america's major retailers. many other people are choosing to go online rather than stand in line. many major deals offered by major retailers, including target, you can find online. many people would rather stay at home from their couch instead of braving the cold and crowds and taking advantage of those steals. as you're about to hear in a few moments of the numbers, retailers are preparing for that, they are expecting for more people to do their shopping online rather than in stores but at this point retailers taking anything they can get. they want to take a benefit from high consumer confidence. many people are looking forward to spending to this holiday season here. really, again, anywhere you put it, there certainly is a tradition of black friday but it certainly has changed over years, boris. >> one tradition i'm going to
2:20 am
miss is seeing those viral videos of people fighting in stores over tvs and that kind of thing. >> nothing like saying thanks with consumerism and knocking out your fellow american. >> thank you. this black friday could be the last for some of america's retailers. shoppers are expected to spend more than ever this holiday season but the question is where. 59% of shoppers will choose to shop online this year. that's the first time spending more online than at the store. that's according to the national retail federation. more likely to go on your phone than go to a big box store like target or walmart and brave the crowds. nearly 7,000 store closures have been announced in 2017. toys "r" us, radio shack, have filed bankruptcy. online shopping is speeding up change in the industry. one bad holiday season could be enough to close a store that would have survived in the past.
2:21 am
looks like we'll will spend more. $967 per person over the holiday shopping season up $3 from last year. again, more than half of that will be online this year. >> you gave me an interesting stat this year that a ton of people that spent money on black friday last year still haven't paid for their purchases. >> 16% of people who spent money last year during the holiday shopping season are still paying it off on their credit card. that's the worst investment you can possibly make. when you're getting these e-mails, if you can't pay it off by january, then you've just become a total sucker to retail machine. one holiday tradition that's not going anywhere any time soon, thanksgiving football. nfl fans feasting on great games yesterday. coy wire will join us next with details in the bleacher report. i've been thinking.

2:35 am
told other defense attorneys in the ongoing russia probe, including president trump's attorneys, they are no longer able to share information with them. >> now, the source says this could mean flynn is preparing to plead guilty. "the new york times" first reported the change, noting it could be an indication flynn is cooperating with prosecutors or negotiating a deal. >> lawyers on the trump legal team says that doesn't necessarily mean that the change was unexpected. this comes weeks after cnn reported flynn was worried about the possible legal exposure faced by his son, michael flynn jr. >> witnesses interviewed by mueller's team said investigators have asked about flynn and his son's business dealings, including their firm's reporting of income gained from overseas clients. people acting as agents for foreign entities are legally required to disclose that. >> president trump is at mara lago celebrating thanksgiving.

beach. senator al franken offering a new apology in response to the most recent accusation of sexual harassment he faces. the minnesota democrat seeking forgiveness after a woman said he grabbed her rear while taking a photo with her at the minnesota state fair in 2010. this is the first claim of improper touching happened that after franken took office. >> saying in a statement, quote, i met tens of thousands of people taking photographs, often in crowded and chaotic situations. i'm a warm person. i hug people. i learned i crossed the line for some women and i know that any number is too many. some women have found my greetings or embraces for a hug or photo inappropriate and i respect their feelings about that. franken has already apologized to a radio anchor who says he forcibly kissed and groped her in 2006 when he was a comedian in a uso tour. >> washington examiner writer and commentator, beckett adams.
2:39 am
i hope you had a wonderful day yesterday. we worked, but we're still thankful for everything. >> let's talk about this latest michael flynn development. it's a new development, a wrinkle, a headline in the russia investigation. what do you think -- where do you think that brings us now. >> there's a couple of options. him going to mueller's team can signal, a, he might be ready to plead guilt y he might be willing to work with them, i.e., he's flipped or, c, it doesn't mean anything. it just means out of normal propriety sake he's broken off contact with trump so there's no distraction or conflict of interest if they are entering into any consideration with prosecution. not to say there's prosecution yet. this could fizzle out into nothing, this could turn into -- if they're entering into any sort of conversation under ordinary guidelines you have to
2:40 am
break off this sort of agreement with the trump team. what they have there, which doesn't necessarily break attorney/client prif, in order for him to talk to prosecution they have to break that off. this happens in a lot of these negotiations. right now i feel like we're trying to read the tea leaves, what does this mean without having enough information to go on. my suggestion to a lot of people is just hold fire and see where this goes. but as, you know, a lot of people have suggested earlier, this doesn't look good for flynn none has looked good for flynn since the beginning. he's extremely conflicted. >> we can't understate, though, the potential significance of any information that michael flynn might have about alleged collusion cooperation between flynn and the kaem. he was there during the early chaotic days in the administration. we also know he had contact,
2:41 am
that he was apparently forgetful about with sergey kislyak. he could have a big impact on this investigation. >> he's the cornerstone in the trump campaign. he was a big guy in the transition. if any collusion alleged happened, he was there, involved in some aspect if not heading it. he's a big name, even the reason of the investigation by mueller is because of flynn, his alleged conversations, his supposedly forgetting about his conversations, his stretching the truth to vice president mike pence and the fact that trump then later lobbied former fbi chief james comey to maybe walk away from it. flynn is the cornerstone, the linchpin, an extremely important person. him going to mueller's team and cutting off communication with trump's people does suggest something very big. unfortunately, though, at this time, i keep stressing, like, we just don't have a lot to go on. >> you're right. let the investigation play out. the president, meanwhile, on
2:42 am
thanksgiving day he says this is a country that's started to turn and he talks about the economy, takes credit for this new mood in america. listen. >> we're doing well at home. the economy is doing really great. when you come back, you'll see with the jobs and companies coming back into our country and the stock market just hit a record high, unemployment is the lowest it's been in 17 years so you're fighting for something real, you're fighting for something good. >> so, a victory lap for the president on the economy and the like, which, you know, he has done that before. that's very true to form. but, you know, this economy -- mean, the fact-checkers will tell you, like me, that the economy was already improving even before he came to office here. is there a risk, do you think, that he's taking credit for your 401(k) doing great when a lot of the people who voted for him may not be feeling this. >> this is a prerogative of a lot of presidents, they take
2:43 am
