your daytime highs minus 11in the overnight is minus 60 degrees. that doesn't factor in what will feel like with the wind. potentially dealy and cold. moving on then. looking at these morning lows. minus 16 in chicago, minus 23 in minneapolis. and so to wrap it up on sunday, we have a team in green bay and it could be one of the coldes nfl games we have ever witnessed with the packers. lou: we will be going to peter to talk aboutgreen bay and that matchup in those temperatures. i have never seen you so excited about low temperatures. >> i shouldn't be excited. it is a weather person for testing, this is something we have never potentially seen before. so yes, that does excite m. and i want to make sure that peoplere very aware and i know what to do and be vy careful.

and they are taking the nominations for the next chairman of the federal reserve. and the white house reigniting the gun control debate as it seemingly intended to do. by issuing two new exutive actions. it clarifies who is prohibited from having a gun because of mental health issues. in the second allows leeway for people with mental health issues to the federal background check system. in the obama administration has so far failed to prove her past the gun control agenda. in an immigrant from mexico can practice in the state of california. and sergioarcia arrived illegally and thengraduated from law school and passed the california bar exam.
and he now believes that other states wi follow the californialeagu. >> i know florida is facing the same issue. and i really think that they were leading us to act. >> the ruling in his favor came just aday after a new california law went into effect allowing qualified applicants and to the state bar and new laws allowing illegal immigrants to obtain their drivers licenses in those states. many critics say that it gives them an illegal chance to drive but somesay it's less of an immigration issue and more of a safe issue. >> this will help in that respect. because they willbe safer drivers and there will be less

somewhat ambiguous. it doesn't get much more more difficult to take than that. >> first he is burdened -- that is not clear in terms of allowing enrichment. in this includes that sanctions and the peace process that is very murky or israel has been attacked now for more settlements and so you wonder what is going on. >> and that is that you have --
i mean ome around the globe there is a growing disorder and john kerry seems to be stuck in a sideshow. and with no sense, it doesn't matter. and they are not the main issue here. lou: by the way, i am astonished at him. and he is a man who i thought would not associate himself with is a freewheeling ndividual, with a part of graham and mccain. >> i know him to be a judicious and careful man. he has stood up against vladimir putin and extremism. so i would not be as harsh
tords him. in light of the current administration. lou: i am not being harsh, i just have to say that my interest is piqued by the fact that i have no idea what he is doing there and why he always has his little buddy, lindsey graham with him. and now senator barrasso. i don't mean be harsh, but i'm just curious. >> there is the sense that this is the case. lou: if you are john kerry, do you get to show another altogether in proximity with this observation?
[laughter] >> john kerry considered him as his running mate. and we worked away through that. and "the washington post" giving a straightforwd lie by the administration. muster the courage and gave them to pinocchio's per line. >> doubling down, it is working. and i don't know whythey ae trying to fix the legislation were replaced it. replacing it with something that might work.
lou: and the republicans look to be extraordinary fools to even think about repealing in dealing with obamacare. because this is a monstrous situation and in new york, if you just set in your column from a new mayor that will workfor the far left. >> i think so. i think that with obamacare it is such a burden. and i suspect it is a burden for "the washington post" that they ran out of tokyo marketings since they only gave them two. the one the were over quota. [laughter] >> and i think that obama is doingthe republicans a favor by not opening up the legislation.
because i think that they would then have developed for mething at the end of the day and his stubbornness and refusal to consider changes is hurting him more than it hurting the republans at this point. >> do tnk that this dismisses and denies the democratic party to say that this is a disaster? a-to-z in tota >> it hurts hillary. she will be chacterized as the mother of obamacare because of the hillary care from e 1992 and 1994 timeframe. and she would like nothing more to this issue than to be resolved. >> this would be the third democratic term in a row.
