comment. they said such accusations are baseless. the house detainees must be utilized. for his part he says it is going to keep fighting. >> whatever you have to do to stay here. >> nbc bay area news. it is 7:13. we have much more ahead. coming up, a travel nightmare but it lost emotional support dog, what the airline is doing to try to reunite him with his owner. we are waking up to hazy skies. some smoke there. temperatures climbing closer to 90 later on. we'll have a look at how hot valley temperatures will get when we come right back. gate br

side hug went viral. you can see her leaning back and appearing stiff. he also apologized when he saw grande's name he thought it was something new at taco bell. grande is in fact italian american. the highway patrol working to get impaired drivers off the road. it shows more needs to be done when telling impaired drive toers stay off the road. today pete went through a simulation to show us how dangerous driving impaired can be. >> when you're getting behind the wheel and driving on a freeway you should never drive when you have impaired. they gave me an idea of what it will feel like when you're impaired. i want to mention it was safe in

straight area and you'll see a little parking spot over there. you'll pull into the parking lot. with this simulation i can't even tell there is a parking spot. it is a physical thing, a mental thing. >> put your seat belt on. >> oh my gosh. >> oh my gosh. >> wow. >> nbc bay area news. >> wow. we do have another note on this. the property casualty told about drooifg. 88% of parents surveyed said they do talk about drunken drooifg. only 60 talk about drooifg while high. 42% of californians admit to driving immediately after using marijuana. 10% say they are likely to drive

as the nation honored senator john mccain for his heroism, selflessness, and 60 years of public service, the president sat out of the public light. nothing -- not a welcome back. the country honored john mccain for 60 years of pub lib service. the president sat out of the public spotlight. not an announcement that the economy grew at 4.2% during the last quarter would give president trump his dues this past week. a new public opinion poll shows his most trying days may be still ahead. nbc bay area joining us. i actually didn't know about this. what is the latest public sentiment? >> it is not good. in fact the bad news comes from the washington post poll released just the other day. only 36%, 36% of the public now
support the president. that's a new low. 60% dus approdisapprove of his performance. there's more trouble for trump which is based in the washington post poll. 78% support the president. that figure may seem high. it is down by about 10 points compared with recent polls. now it may be that the post poll is -- something outside the norm. another poll also ahead the president at 36%. of course we know polls are snapshots in time. it remains to be seen whether this downward trend continues. it appears that the trump base may be tracking.
>> your question that the president suffered a cruel august. think of all of the things that have happened. eight counts of bank fraud. admission of guilt. guilt again to money laundering. it could lead the president as a coconspirator. it is for potentially damaging the information on the company's books and the immunity given to publisher of the national inquirer. any one of these things, any one of these developments would put a dent in it. they are more than problematic.
they are a direct result on the trump presidency. all of this comes to a head as the nation celebrating john mccain a patriot that put public service above personal gains. >> and this president was playing golf and tweeting about attacking the doj and the fbi. so this may be a tough time for the president. he continues to accuse special counsel with conducting a rigged witch hunt. is it campaign gaining any traction do you think? >> it is certainly what the trump team has been doing, has been hoping that something would lead people to actually believe it. apparently it is not working. we know how sympathetic fox news
is. 59% support the mueller investigation. that is up a wlhopping 11%. so in other words at the same time support for trump is sinking. support for mueller is growing. >> do you think it could be a turning point for this trump presidency? >> yeah. we are always looking for that turning point. a turning point probably not. perhaps a of what's to come. that is because federal law enforcement agencies rarely make news between labor day. do expect more indictments, higher up ton foon the food cha. no one is happier to see donald trump. >> so much to cover with you. look forward to next week.
>> thanks. still ahead on today in the bay, the world's strongest man is making an appearance this weekend. well tell you the record he insten instei intends to break today. have you seen his fitness videos? >> i'll show you how things might look temperature wise. temperatures approaching 90 degrees later on. we'll talk about that as we come right back. how well do you know california )s labor laws? our consumer team tests your knowledge! plus- we )ll be all over any breaking news that happens overnight. when you join us monday - labor
good sunday morning so far. jacket weather around the north bay. 49 degrees to start off the morning. it is 57 in san jose. it is 55 degrees around san francisco. you're seeing a little bit of sun. it is 55 degrees. looking at hazy sunshine. mostly clear skies reaching a little bit of smoke this morning and for san jose. you see the sunrise there. it is 57 degrees. south bay also seeing some smoke. we should have winds aloft. it begins to change once again. it is bringing in smoke and especially i think if you're in the east bay morning through midday it will likely be the area where it is highest. smoke advisory through the afternoon hours today may see a little more smoke. during the afternoon late day sea breeze will hope with a push
a little more smoke out of the area. between now and tomorrow smoke advisory due to upper level winds bringing in wild fire smoke out of the north. the low clouds may begin to break up a bit more. it is mixing drier air down the coast. plan on little more sunshine on the coast. breezy conditions off of the cool ocean. if you see highs in the upper 60s. low 70s into oakland. as you head further inland the inland east bay. it is 74 degrees around santa cruz. tomorrow may be a little bit warmer. 90s possible in system of the
valleys. numbers in the mid-70s with morning clouds and afternoon sunshine. lake tahoe right now not seeing any thundershowers in the forecast except maybe around wednesday and thursday we could begin to see changes. lake tahoe looking pretty nice. the source of the changes out towards the see sierra. at this point it doesn't look like it will come towards the bay area. it will build more strongly towards northern california. also are the systems passing by to the north which should prevent the highs from getting too strong. the forecast warms us up a little bit more tomorrow and we will see temperatures leveling off as we head towards next weekend. so san francisco morning clouds, afternoon sunshine. a bit warmer tomorrow. you'll notice our valley temperatures starting to climb on up into the 90s.
trending cooler heading towards the middle part of the week. >> thank goodness. nothing more miserable than last year's labor day weekend. the scottish high land games are gathering at the alameda county fair grounds. thousands are attending the cultural and athletic. most involve throwing heavy objects either high or far. there is one competitor who has a leg up on everyone else this year. i learned they call him thor, known as the mountain ton hit show game of show. hold it is tight ol of strongest man in the world right now. he hopes to hit records in the weight for height competition. >> he lifts over a thousand pounds. >> he could just do a curl with
this sunday, a funeral and a rebuke. the country says good-bye to an american hero. john mccain. >> he meat a better presence as he made the senate this country. >> what the senator's daughter, among others, taking aim at president trump. >> t america of john mccain has no need to be made great again because america was always great. >> president trump responds later, by tweeting, make america great again. plus, pressure points. president trump claims if democrats win back congress, they will overturn everything we have done and do it quickly and violently. >> i hope there won't be
