7:00 am
is this this is fox 5 local news flus news morning. good morning, everybody, happy sunday to you, here's a live look outside on this sunday, december 18th. a beautiful start to the weekend. the end of the weekend, i should say, caitlyn will be coming along with a check of your forecast in a little bit in the show. first thank you for waking up with his, i'm annie yu, let's get to some headline, icy conditions wreak havoc on area roads in baltimore two people died in knife in a 67 car pile up. nearly twos dozen people treated for injury, some in critical condition, the road reopened last night. in virginia, one person died in

7:02 am
to a running start with a five point win in philly and this week, a chance to exercise some, cam newton and the paths coming to town >> we had five turnovers, and if we turn the ball over again, we can expect a similar result >> it's a shot at redemption for kirk cousins after last year. and a shot for josh norman to remind the panthers just what they're made of. >> no mercy. i think they know that >> we gave to this dude and he went out there and showed it. sorry for the carolina panthers >> we're here to break out monday night no mercy show down >> i'm brody logan. alongside gr
7:03 am
mercy, no surrender, no mercy >> that's normal talking about football sounds like the gladiator and i can't get enough of it >> sign me up. >> every time sign me up for opening drive. >> opening drive, brought to you by your local kia dealers. like we do every week, getting start of the kia opening drive, first down, we're going to put the ball in the air to open up the run game >> the carolina panthers are better, couple rookie coming into their own, where is the strength of redskins, pierre garcon i think they're using him better. the, he almost got last year's total already with three games to play, i want to get him jordy reid involved >> it plays well into what the panthers
7:04 am
weakness is: i think you definitely exploit the weakness a early. >> i think, i think when you also hit up the pass to run, i don't want the redskins to get too far away from their identity. i think it's very similar to what the panthers run as well. they kind of, the run game, then they kind of spread you out when they pass it. i think changing it up early is good. i believe they're going to go back to the identity >> quick and sach. no re, two sack fumbles, they can get to the quarterback top ten in the league in interceptions, for me, this is about staying ahead to be four, five, six yard throws >> you can't let cameron newton become scrambling >> i like cameron newton >> let him scramble because he's running for his life. i believe, this is a guy that
7:05 am
feet. he's a big guy, hard to tackle. you got to get to him early. you got to get to him early >> when i watch the redskins against mobile quarterbacks they've done a terrible job not just this year but over the year, zach prescott made him look back. aaron rogers make him look back, and trent murphy is going to dive at the feet of the quarterback. when you're rushing how keep that guy in the pocket. they won't always collapse in the interior, how are you going to keep that guy flat footed from getting that guy outside >> a lot of people try to get him right up front and center then the edge is really kind of to make him step upwards. but when you phillying off the edge so fast and you give him that space, scramble out. the worse thing they can do, sometimes when you got to have the vision and make sure you get to a point where he cannot
7:06 am
with a quarterback like cam who can scramble and hurt you with his arms and his feet >> how much does that slow down in your pass rush >> the thing is you talk to get up the field and force them inside and the line man will get them. i think what they have to do is kind of taylor off the outside rush and let the line men push them >> got to get jordan reed incorporated >> what i'm worried about is what is jordan reed? this was his loan catch, and his only target last week against the eagles for ten yards and it was a pretty key first down for the redskins on a second down, and long. the problem is, he only played ten snaps, but a quarterback of their offensive play, it's been another eight days before tomorrow's game, you'd think he's a little bit healthy. i have no dilutions to grantjer. i think he's going to have to go max effort. when he's on the field. >> obviously passing scenarios you got to target him more often, save
7:07 am
jordan reed for the redskins for plays like this in chicago last december, but for me, if he's not at his best this offense can't be at its best. >> he's kind of like that blanket or that cushion that you need. when he's healthy he changed the whole look of the game and you need him to be 100% >> note ken said he wants to snuggle up with jordan reed >> so does every quarterback that he ever played with him >> jordan reed for the first time since the shoulder injury participated in one-on-one drills at practice this week. so he's making progress. fourth down got to get an early third down stopping it >> this defense needs to get off the field and get off the field fast. you do not want to give cam newton a lot of chance to get you to hurt you. >> if it's third down, this is when you have
7:08 am
they say just lick your lips and say this is my chance to go to the pro bowl, my chance to mic the big plays. not only that, a big stack is an emotional turn on third down you got to go out aggressive >> the redskins routinely get to third and long and they can't get off the field, i'm talk to go third and eight, nine, ten, that's a defense best friend, that's the dream scenario. do your job on first and second down and then in the end the drove. it's like the equivalent of you're baking for an hour and a half but you don't eat what you just made. why? all of the hard work on first and second down is to said up thirsty and long, that's where you t off. and that's where you fail >> like baking they keep getting burnt >> we are nearing the end of the 2016 nfl season and as we approach the end, we all want to know will the redskins make the playoffs? let us know what you think. you can #hail yes if you think you're going to mic the plays, but if you're a
7:09 am
hail no. we'll see what the majority things at the end of the show >> i said hail. make
7:10 am
7:11 am
. redskins trivia. with navy federal credit union >> welcome back on fox 5 i'm annie yu. it is now
7:12 am
trivia question brought to you by navy federal. who -- we want to know -- it is sunday, i am, we want to know who holds the records for the most referring yards in a game against the panthers, let us know what you think on the fox 5 facebook page. we'll have the chance and brody will have the answer because i can't talk today. >> brought to you by washington toyota dealer association. >> annie, it's sunday too early. fantasy facts brought to you by dc toyota. we give a keep match-ups. you can take advantage of. grant, first game we're looking at browns and bills. >> it's taking 14 weeks but i have a new theory when it comes to daily fantasy. whoever the browns are playing, i've done this a couple of times. successfully this season, it happens to be the bills this week, tie rod taylor
7:13 am
would like to see what kind of number he's going to put up. i think this could be a close game, 27-23 range something like that. going into the early part of next years ago re year on dfs, sack against the browns, they're not good on defense >> probably going to be a lot of snow in that game, another cold game, packers and bears. >> here's my lock of the week for you. i don't know if we do it, but i'm creating it now, shawn jeffrey will dance in the painted area. he got three games left, this is a franchise tag wide receiver who is just uncoverible one-on-one down the field. he has to have a monster final couple weeks if he's got to get a handsome contract. maybe get tagged again with his original goal. i don't think that's a possibility with the bears and rebuild but i think he does catch a touchdown. which, he's not
7:14 am
sleeper play. more important, you can't go wrong with the packer, jordy nelson, snow, shine, he's catching passes down the field. as long as alshon jeffrey may be a sack and a daily lineup i think would be nice >> one thing to look at with aaron rogerses, he might not be 100%. >> game time is back with a look at three key redskins plays and we want to know will the redskins make the playoff? post your comments on social media. hail yes if you think they will make the playoffs, #hail no. if you think they will miss the post season. n.

7:17 am
7:17, welcome back, much warmer outside this morning. hard to believe after nasty ice storm we had yesterday. now so much milder but just in time for the game tomorrow we're going to turn much colder. sorry. panthers in town, any tailgating tomorrow, probably just going to be cold all day, breezy. so temperatures only getting into at the 30's for the day and with that windchill, it will feel like the 20's. my kickoff
7:18 am
winds lessens as many layers as humanly possible. we're not looking at weather to be any much of a factor except that it will be cold. panthers and redskins forecast back to you guys. >> red zone play of the game. over 2 million vehicles sold and counting. >> it's time for the red zone play of the game. we don't know which red skins game is going to show up. it got started on the score board with this run. rob kelly. rob kelly, when he gets in traffic, has really quick feet. >> he does and he breaks tackles like he did here down at the two yard line, what i love about this run is a block by jamison crowder. he gets your tacker at the line of scrimmage. here's crowder five yard line. that's a shifty slot
7:19 am
right there. rob kelly finishes his runs he's always falling forward, that's an arm tackle, that's not going to do it. watch how he carries the football. hopefully i don't jinks him. he hasn't lost fumbles yet >> the good thing, it's the right time of year. we dial them to out all the time. you got to do something in the red zone, if you can stop the running game in the red zone you open up everything else >> what is that like when you see a dude as small as jamison crowder out there and laying someone out >> i think this team has done to find an identity, playing hard in december and playing the right way and jamison crowder that shows a lot of effort. >> the second play, pierre garcon touchdown catch, corner of the end zone. a lot of times when they get thigh this area, they try a fade and it actually worked >> this one is not a true goal line f
7:20 am
it's not the kind of fade they've been run you go all season from two feet away from the goal line, here's why they knew this was going to go to work. they ran the same thing against the eagles last year successfully at the end of the season week 16 i talked to kirk cousins about that this week, he makes a little move at the line of scrim rich. plays you the line of scrimmage, and pierre garcon took it. that's a timing pattern you can't throw short or also that's broken up or intercepted. ? with some receiving you're on high alert. you got desean jackson, everybody trying to look at him, whatever you do we're going to be on him. you may not play him as tight and so you open up a big play >> the good thing about this play is when they get in that red zone area, crowder and desean jackson jackson and he found one of his best receivers molest reliable receer
7:21 am
was the big player >> i think he's under utilized. >> 20 to 20. >> in the red zone this is a guy who can run those -- make catches with people hanging off of him >> willing to take the hits >> probably his biggest catch was on fourth and two where the guy draped over him. >> they can play the season. >> and this might not be a traditional red zone play, but the td to chris thomgs and i love pattern williams >> it's just outside of the 20 but we got to show pattern williams, welcome back big fellow, four game suspension, he's been waking up in the middle over the night thinking about throwing tds. electronic at 71 out here to 25. boom. 20. knocks him back to the ten. brandon doesn't have anyone to block. brandon scherff is runninged
7:22 am
>> he loves those play, he got a little extra gas >> he got 300 plus pounds coming at you full speed way smile on his face. >> like a train hitting car on the rail. you know what i mean? you just can't stop it. >> like a tiny car. >> tiny -- smart car. >> why didn't he take -- the redskins didn't know they were about to rip off a 25-year-old run. >> come on,s he's trying to tell the dude he's not going to get a touchdown? which players do you need to pay attention to and which could mean a win for the skins. i'll let you know when brant slants, redskins game time is back after the break. ak.
7:23 am
7:24 am
7:25 am
let's get to the slants brought to you by your dc chevrolet dealers. get you started with the visitors. i think the carolina panthers greg olson is the guy you got to keep tabs on. this is the third best in football. in his offense he's utilize beautifully. calvin benjamin is struggling cam
7:26 am
threat. just like the redskins do 86, you're going to see them in physical player wins jump bowls down the field as well. he's had field days against washington, most worried about him? su cravens. let's get to the redskins player to watch. dust tin hop kins. . a lot of, that's why they're still a geek, they're wrong. this team runs kickers out of town every time they get into a rough pack. they're going to go through stretchers like this, look at david acre, gram coming to town with carolina, the redskins need to be patient with him. he has a big strong booming leg, he can hit 50 plus yarders kicked ball out of the back of the end zone on field goals as well. he missed six of his last 19,
7:27 am
hooking things or going for something that doesn't know where the football is going, dust tin needs a little confidence. tell him he's your guy and he's not going anywhere and here's my stat of the day, with a victory tomorrow the redskins will have won five home game in consecutive years for the first time since the 1996 and 1997 season. what does this mean? for me, you go to fedex field a bunch. they're starting to treat you to a better product. i gave jay gruden credit. for a long time it hadn't been fun going to fedex field. >> how much better is it as player when you're on a run like this, in the hunt, for these games in the hunt for the playoff. >> very exciting: it's -- it's a thrill, at thrill. you have an opportunity to, to
7:28 am
exciting to be there >> absolutely. i think the redskins are playing well and playing well at the rhyme. deep into december, playoff is right in front of you. it's very excited as a player, you can still get it >> and you can tell with the players in the locker room after the game, they're excited for the playoffs sprocketo prospects. >> one-half down and one more to go. redskins game time are wondering will the redskins make the playoff? >> post your comments on social media, hail yes if you think they will or hail no if you think they're not going to. >> hail yes or hail no.
7:29 am
7:30 am
7:31 am
getting there doesn't matter if you can't get him to the turf, it's about rushing with vision, we talked about this. i think the worst thing you can do is flush him up in the pocket, let him step up and then extend the play like he's trying to do right here. you have to collapse the fact from the interior, trent murphy have a big game, this is big chris baker, ricky john france war. >> i'm impressed because a lot of times you get them from the outside is not about the speed rush, is this no pushing pass and too big a guy to arm tackle. you got to make a move, beat your guy outright and let the inside guy, it's almost like a team effort >> if roethlisberger probably the hardest guy you tackled >>e'
7:32 am
kind of guy, big, hard to get down but to get to cam newton i think you got to play swarm defense, you see on the film you guy he gets up one play, still makes plays, other guys have to come pow right down the line. >> get into his head, i think he's been hit enough he wants to start crying. make him cry. >> if you get to cam newton you might be actually get off the field on third down. redskins make this look to difficult, i make losing weight really hard. people like the guys sitting to my left and right, they do it don't talk to anyone, for me it's an ordeal. it's not that hard to get off the field at third and nine, get someone to the ground, cover, be responsible in zone, seems like it's always some gap, somebody, ken, it's one player on the defensive >> you say lose eight pound
7:33 am
wear a vet so it's an allusion >> they got, you know, they, you notice the third down and someone has to step up it's going to take a leader, once you start doing that, everybody will >> you said a leader, they got guys like dante in the back of the secondary and you're going to need guys like compton and guys been around the game and step up and talk to the guy, when you don't have a sense of urgency, you're going to lose them on third down >> 1 thing that will help their chances of getting up the field is being able to tackle, which you got to tackle and take advantage of your opportunities to tackle. >> we just talked about that >> go ahead. >> we just talked about cam is a big guy and you got to tackle one, then the nfl the guys are so big and strong, the arm tackles aren't going to work anymore but because of the rules you almost have to arm tackle. it has to be a group effort and get the guys out >> i remember earlier on during the season, the redskins
7:34 am
criticized about their tackling defense, they got a little bit better then worse, what i think they do best on defense is, you know, tackle is football. as a to defense you know how he don't tackle, what they do best they bend but don't break, they have to be able to take away the big play of the carolina panthers >> if you're going to put occasionally josh norman on handled, eight, and in, ten yards, you bet tackle but the biggest difference, how do the redskins play so well defensively in that four-game winning streak. they went ten plus quarters without giving up a touchdown, they tackled. go back to that baltimore game, some of those signature performance, it's not all that crazy when you go back and watch. it's the same defense, of same guy, they did a better job in a couple area >> you mentioned ted junior he's the big play guy for carolina. redskins have guys a little better than ted
7:35 am
it's three longest catches of the season they've gotten him involved >> without a doubt. when he catches the ball, he's a threat because everybody is looking at him and opens it up for everyone else. you got to get him involved one way or the other. >> the guy is dangerous, stretches with defense and i think, whoever is -- he's just got to win >> i equate him to a sharp shooter in basketball because he's instant offense, the redskins last week against the eagles were in a bad spot. they only scored seven points, the start over the third quarter down on the road. how do you get something going? it's hard to continuing going 13, 14 plays, 80 yard drives because the margin for error is minimal. one play negatively, it take this it's an 80-year-old touchdown throw, that's the desean jackson effect >> here's a chance to set an record. he's one away from jerry rice for the most long touchdowns by
7:36 am
that's big time name. you talk about jerry rice. we're going to look at what else is making headlines around the nfl with annie and the big time name, guy lambert. >> what do you call me? i'm a girl. >> i think annie is a big name >> it's just a name >> all right. guys, well, as usual, there's a lot going on in the nfl. i call it like the soap before a for men, can we go to that. let's start with the new york giants in the hot seat >> here in dc we're familiar with watergate. now i call this walkie-talkie gate. there's a scandal amongst up. we're talking about mcadoo during the cowboys game last week, apparently coach was having issues communicating with eli manning. he picked up a walkie-talkie and proceeded to chitchat with him that way. that's a major no no. last year you can do that. this years, the rules state you cannot do so. what's at issue here is tha
7:37 am
just probably going to get fined but well, a lot of owners probably want the giants to lose a draft pick >> he's in a bigger penalty but what are the dallas fans saying >> initially dallas inquired about it. they have not filed former complaint. once again the nfl now investigating >> rumor is adrian pederson arguably the best runningback in the nfl. >> you ever have a secret you're not supposed to tell anyone but you tell everybody? >> for adrian pederson he's going to be back. on friday, he was on a radio show and said hey guy, i'm back, i'm going to be suiting up. vikings didn't like that because they weren't ready to make that statement. they had to release a player. so the guys are walking around the locker room, they ended up releasing toby
7:38 am
peterson suiting up today >> i feel bad for the other guy. yesterday, we got a little bit of a wintery mix near dc but buffalo got a ton of snow. and fans are trying to make a buck off of it >> this is a holiday season, and i need cash in my pocket. shoot on up to baltimore. >> yes, they're paying fans, ten bucks an hour to remove the snow from the stadium. >> the redskins fans would do this for free. teamwork. makes for dream work. not trying to make a buck. >> four hours, get you a ticket to today's game, they also provided lunch and dinner to everyone who helped clear out the stadium yesterday >> now to big been roethlisberger. he's playing santa claus this season >> each and every year elis to give back to the o line. last year, he gave all the guys five of them nice wahe
7:39 am
>> not that nice. still very pricey. i couldn't afford it. this year, he decided to give those big line by custom made suits. now, i looked it up. the average price of a custom going about $3,000 times that by five, well, you can do the math. $15,000 that he spend on his offensive line >> i bet they won't look good as your suit >> get out of here. what are we going to ask the guys for christmas now >> you asked for that $3,000 suit. i'm going to ask for a better title. apparently i'm nothing >> i think guy, you have enough suits, i think you're good. >> nubby, by the way. number what do you think about cam newton what he's been wearing each season? right here, what do you call this look? it's like the joker look at a
7:40 am
>> looks like the joker representing breast cancer awareness. he does whatever he wants. >> philosopher annie yu once told me there are no rules in fashion. >> rules are made to be broken anyway. >> he's rocking here with the card di gan. >> worse dresser, cam newton or russell westberg >> last week, looking like a west world bandit, that got cut off. >> we're here in a safari. >> this is considered good. if i did this, people would be >> i think that -- we all should dress like cam newton this week, see how people reacted. >> he got some big sweater on. >> you know,
7:41 am
>> when you win it like -- when you're winning it's a good look. >> coming up talking more news morning, it's time for grants paulsen favorite segment. redskins tailgate. and special for grant let you know about that. redskins game time back after this. >> hail yes.

7:50 am
7:51 am
it's time for comcast pick of the day. here's where we stand so far. grant tied with ken, 21-14. and you know guys? i'm two games back. go first. grant >> eagles and baltimore, 1
7:52 am
kickoff on fox 5. grant? >> i'll take the ravens. they need the game more, philadelphia is in a little bit of trouble. they've lost several games that a row. last week you saw them beat themselves time and time against the redskins, i think they're in that kind of mode >> ravens are a slightly better team, give me a 2017 final baltimore in the win column. >> i shouldn't go first because i got to agree you that's my pick. >> i go with the ravens. one of the better defenses in the nfl, eagles are just not where they're supposed to be >> they put out as much as they could against the redskins and their season is pretty much done, i'm going to with the ravens. game two, taking on. giants, 1 p.m. kickoff >> i'll go with the lions. i'll say the lions are going to beat the giants. >> i gladly will take the lead in our pick i'm going to with the new york football giants. here's what i'm worried
7:53 am
your pick there, lions, stafford is banged up. he has the questionable how well he's going to throw the football. they do have something to play for, they can get a by in the first round, the giants if they lose week seven against the redskins? i think new york wins 27-17 >> grant going to go to with you object one, new york has too much to lose and they got this danger play maker over there, >> i was going to go with the giants, it doesn't matter. if they're down, they come back. got injured quarterback, i don't know he's going to make something happen. give me the lions going to change it up >> tampa bay traveling to at&t stadium. arlington sunday night against the cowboys 8:30 kickoff >> i'm kind of going back and forth on this, but i'm going to go with
7:54 am
>> keep the run going >> yes >> i have a gut feel that the bucks win this game but i believe it's a toss-up 50-50, so just to try to take game over ken i'm going to go with the dallas cowboy, they can't play as bad as they did offensively last week. dac prescott struggled. another game or two away from a little bit of noise incorrectly about tony romo in dallas, starting to hear rumbling, they will get back to doing what they do, which is seek elliot, and the bucks as good as they played, they're due for a loss, they're not going to rip off a second half without a loss. dallas win >> second half of that a loss and knock the redskins out of the playoff, please cuts that clip and we'll bring it back. >> i'm going with the cowboys, i think sack prescott and elliot these are the two young football stars, they don't want to use their winly >> cowboy, the defense has been carrying them
7:55 am
rush defense is suspect. a lot of seek elliot today. game of the week, monday night football redskins and carolina panthers 8:30 put p.m. >> i've had a bad feeling i don't know why, i think it steps from the fact i don't know how the redskins are going to slow down cam newton. they really struggled against the panthers. i think that if you had cravens, you can had cam newton with him. if you had will compton you'd have a better chance against jonathan steward, i wouldn't be surprised if the panthers hung 30 on washington. i think carolina wins 34-29 game. >> i mean, i think like you said, it's going to be a tough game. i go with the redskins like i do every week but i think it's going to be tough and the redskins have to start off strong. if they don't, >> i think it comes down to match-up, it's going to be
7:56 am
tough match-up for both teams, high scoring game. the redskins did he first is not the greatest right now but i also feel that with cam newton and coming to town, it's about match-ups and intensity, i'm going to say the redskins getting healthy at the right time with the o line and i'm going to go were a close game and go with the redskins >> i'm going to go with the redskins and you guys have been saying this, i think they're going to win by double digits, this panthers team might have given up a bit. you talk about the redskins defense and yeah, it's bad. facing this offense, but that offense offensive line for the panthers, they're on their fourth center, they have injuries all over the place, i think this defense is going to get to cam and win this game by 12 points >> josh norman as good as he is, it can backfire against him in the locker room, what did he say? i got something for him. it could go in reverse. >> the josh norman show monday night.

get rain here in washington. the leading edge of the rain made it into parts of montgomery county through howard county and into the baltimore area. everyone thawed out yesterday and into the overnight. temperatures kept rising, pretty well. not in the district itself just white yet, these rain showers but probably between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m., we'll start to see the rain move through, east of the rockville, towards uncle obey they're getting showers and into baltimore is where the falling rain is. temperatures ahead of this cold front 58 baltimore, 61 washington. 62 in quantico and 62 at dulles but in the 40's where the cold air started to seep in, 49 hagerstown, 46 in martinsberg, 34 in cumberland and look at that cold air, 33 in pittsburgh, 28 in columbus, five degrees in chicago. so we were climbing up the hill temperatures yesterday afternoon evening and overnight. we're about to fall down quickly at that. wind speeds out of the south, winds are out of the south ahead of the

it is sunday, december 18th, i'm ronica cleary >> tom fitzgerald with you on the hill on fox 5 sunday morning couple days, be couple days before christmas: the year has flown by in big ways and in small. we appreciate you taking the time to spend this next half hour with you here on fox 5 news on the hill. in the last shot bid, thousands of electoral college petitions are being circulated to block the election of the president-elect. lors will convene. donald trump lost the popular vote the number is up to about 3 million. this is a situation unlike -- very different than 2000 where we had that
8:31 am
mystery. we know wh won this election, however, this is ths movement afoot to change the outcome of this election. you spoken to a lot of people this week. is there a sense of folks who want this to happen, that were what we saw on november 8 did not actually takes place, that somehow the electoral college could sweep in and changes that you >> that's an interesting question because i'm out there for our 6:30 show we call it the pulse of the people. a lot of the people i speak with really seem to have a feeling of acceptance and an interest if moving forward in a way to regroup and rejoin the country. i don't think a lot of people are following this as closely because i don't know that people really believe it's possible to see the kind of outcome where the electors, what is a 35 or something to get -- to get it to -- not hit 270 to have t
8:32 am
congress. i don't think people are really thinking that's a possibility >> i get that if you voted for hillary clinton and you don't like donald trump, why -- i get why they would want to keep this going. >> sure. >> because it bugs republicans and clearly, it bugs the heck out of donald trump because he can't stop tweeting about it. i don't get the sense that this productive in any way with the democrat's time, they got to elect a new dnc chief, keith ellison had been the first name out, tom perez secretary now in the race apparently with the blessing of the president of the united states and possibly hillary clinton as well. if i'm a democrat party, why not use this time in between the election and this inauguration to get your ducks in a row, to regroup, and find a direction for this party, which was clearly lacking back
8:33 am
way, when you actually had to get possibly come out to vote for your candidate. that didn't happen. it seems like this is a lot of wasted energy and a lot of wasted effort right now because the second words out of their mouth after they say that oh, well, i accept the outcome of the election, why are you do this >> i get your point, i really do. i think you're right. i think there needs to be a significant focus on the dnc chair race, but you do have to step back. i support the electoral college but it is uncanny to look at the fact that she won by nearly 3 million votes. that could cause a tremendous amount frustration and concern and if the allegations of russian hacking are true, i do -- i really sympathize with the interest in getting that security briefing for the electors but then that was denied and the vote is monday. maybe they need to accept it and move on. >> let's talk about the russian situation. a growing number in congress, not just
8:34 am
as well, have voiced concerns about what they have identified as a russian and foreign influence in this election, one of them is virginia congressman don buyers, a democrat from our area, he is one of the people to have the electoral college briefed on what the 17 intelligence agencies know and do not know about what may or may not happen leading up to the election, we spoke to the congressman this week >> we're not saying theflt vote one way or another but they were set up in order to make independent judgments about who would be the best president >> some trump supporters suggested this is politically motivated. is there an alter year motive >> let's let it work the way the founding fathers intended >> we're
8:35 am
interview coming up with chris wallace in a moment. the question is this, if the russians did what apparently these agencies said they did. did that necessarily change the outcome of this election >> we'll never know the answer to that. that's where you get into the question of is it sour grapes >> and the democrats still not denied the validity of any of these things released >> no one is saying they're not true >> this is what i want to see, show me the person headed to the poll to cast their vote for hillary clinton who suddenly learned all of these things either from the fbi, e-mail investigation, into what may have gone on with the private e-mail server or the clinton voter who may have changed their minds after what they learned about some of these wikileaks e-mails, show me that person who is absolutely going to vote for hillary clinton changed t
8:36 am
mind, spun on their heels and decided to vote for donald trump. did that person exist? >> i think they may exist. but for me >> somebody >> maybe not voting for donald trump but i do think they may not have shown up. i do think it's interesting we've had this conversation about getting the 270 electoral votes. this is what evan mcmullin tried to do that independent candidate for governor >> glad you didn't call him ed mcmuffin. >> it's fascinating this race. it speaks to the feeling and the sentiment in this country. no one can get it together. i mean, eventually, the pulse of the people, the feeling i'm getting, in january, on inauguration day, i think generally speaking people are over it. >> this is one of the reasons people get turned off on politics and
8:37 am
because, you know, they're so quick to, you know, hang themselvess on the founding fathers and the constitution. all of that great stuff we learned about in school. until it doesn't suit them. until they don't like the outcome of what the electoral college is. all of a sudden, we need to toss >> the electoral college >> electoral college, toss 240 years of american history out the window because we don't like the way the election turned out. that's too bad. that's the way it works. that's the way the system was designed. like it or not >> before we talk about another cabinet pick for donald trump, do you think anything will happen tomorrow? do you think donald trump will be get the votes that he needs in the electoral college >> it appears donald trump will be elected by the electoral college as the 45th president of the united states. it's interesting though, some of these areas around here, they're approaching this a little bit differently. we talked to maryland this week. maryland for the first time ever is going to allow a
8:38 am
stream tomorrow of these votes being cast and expect to be out there as well tomorrow. this has never happened before. i can't ever remember a time where people were actually interested -- something you know, and when the votes are finally tallied, it's usually like on a weekend. nobody really ever pays attention to this till now. i don't remember the 2000 recount electoral college vote getting as much attention as this one is and everybody keeps saying the same thing, we accept the results of the election. do you or do you not? because it appears to me that we're going to have a vote tomorrow and then we're going to have a president and an inauguration in skrarn and some people. you know whose moving forward is donald trump >> sometimes he's not acting like he's the president-elect >> making decisions and choice. >> sometime he's a media c

about saturday night live >> when is donald trump going to tweet about fox 5 on the hill? >> i would not hold my breath to that. >> let's talk about nick m ulvaney, he's set to be the budget director, he follows governor nikki haley who has already been picked to be the ambassador to the united nations, a member over the house freedom caucus and he grew out of the tea party movement. he has refused to embarrass the government's borrowing limit. my question when i think about this, i don't really know when you're up against the president of the united states i'm sure it changes your tone, but could he be a person to push back on some of the things that donald trump talked about where he has sounded more like a democrat and talked about spending
8:40 am
>> all the attention the donald trump rally got during the campaign, the rallies people should be watching are the ones that are going on right now, these thank you tour rallies. trump has been say something amazing things and very unrepublican things as well too, he's almost hit the brakes on a lot of these things he said. there was a chant of lock her up the other day and trump said no, no, no, no, that was fine during the campaign but almost to the point in front of his own supporters where he's kind of throwing the car into reverse and nobody in the crowd seems to be paying attention to the fact that he seems to be up ending very major pillars of this campaign. >> maybe the people leading the movement for the electors should be paying attention, maybe he will surprise them >> maybe some of this democrat electors might like some of the things donald trump is saying right now because he seems to be
8:41 am
trump, mike mulveney, i don't think anybody is going to pay attention to him, name me rob portman it's generally a job when done best is unrecognized. you don't want to be the budget director that everybody knows because usually means there's something not so good happened. there is this question about he makeup of this candidate you look at nikki haley and ben carson and it's not heart to see that there are a lot of the white men and not a lot of people in color and different genders in this cabinet. is this a cabinet that looks like america to you? >> that's an interesting question, i did think about that before today -- not just before today's show but i knew we would be discussing that. it doesn't. but i wonder is that a promise that donald trump ever made and is that something that anybody who voted for donald trump expected or
8:42 am
i don't think he has, in any way, contradicted anything he said when he came to the table, and he's surrounding himself with people he's known a long time and trusts. i do think that is important when filling a cabinet but i also completely understand the criticisms and concern when you look at how the cabinet is filling out >> he's gotten a lot of criticism for the makeup of this cabinet but i will say if you look back at what he said during the campaign, trump, and a lot of people didn't like wait he put it, but he did seem to at least address, you know, a lot of the inner city issues that go on in this country in way that hillary clinton never seemed to have on the radar screen at all >> controversially >> and a lot of people said he was wrong and he had a one-sided opinion and view of city, but he was talking about them and him talking about them get other people to talk about them and at least it got that conversation into the campaign in way that
8:43 am
did not come into the campaign on the democrat side. you know, again, with a lot of things with trump right now, you have to pay attention what happens after january 20th because this gap between the campaign and now this transition wefts which one we have to see which one emerges. >> we're not taking a break, let's talk about michelle obama saying this is what it feels like to not have hope. is that too dramatic or is that fair >> it's an interesting person who came to her defense. donald trump in one of his rallies said he thought her words were kind of twisted. you know, michelle obama is somebody who occupies a interesting political pedestal t
8:44 am
because, you know, she's not shy about telling anybody she wants no future in politics. she at times kind of shows destain for all of us, not just the republican side but some of the things that has gone on on the democrat side as well. she's somebody who a lot of people paid a lot of attention to and when she comes out and says there is no hope, that seems to be at odds with what her husband has been saying. let's listen to some of this. >> having a grown-up in the white house who can say to you times of crisis and turmoil, it's going to be ok, let's remember the good things we have, let's look at the future all the things we're building, all of this is important for our kids to stay focused. >> tom, you brought up an interesting point, it doesn't sound like what her husband is saying but in a way it does sound like what donald trump has been sa
8:45 am
reaction. i think he reacted in the right way. i think he has to acknowledge a lot of the fear people have and he got little respect. so think about that. let us know what you think about that exchange, do you feel like there is no hope >> the difference is, yeah, it does sound a lot like the stuff trump was saying in the campaign. the difference here is, she was talking about trump. trump was talking about barack obama >> and america >> any time you're running for an office and this is one of the things that kind of may be, hindered hillary clinton a little bit, so your going to run and you're going to run to be something new. if your party already controls the white house and has controlled the administration for eight year, it's a little hard to bank on the white house as much as you'd like to as the brand new think when you're hillary clinton and you've been on the scene 40 years. donald trump was free of all of that. and when m
