before trump said there was mike coffman. women should be punished for having an abortion, coffman wrote a bill to redefine rape, which could exclude women who were drugged. before trump called for a ban of muslims, coffman pushed for a religious test of u.s. soldiers. and on president obama? trump: he could have been born in kenya. coffman: he's just not an american. stop mike coffman now before he gives trump more ideas. house majority pac is responsible
6:20 pm
i'm mike coffman, and i approve this message. service. it started with my dad. he fought in world war two, was wounded in korea. he's the reason i joined at 17, fought in two iraq wars, and still serve today. the va scandal is an outrage, failing to care for our wounded warriors. that's why i took on the va: to get our veterans the care and respect they deserve. because i understand the sacrifices they made, and i'll never stop fighting for those who fought for us.
6:21 pm
a short week a quarterback hurt and interim head coach and a team that lost its first game in 10 months. at least we are not hurting for storylines. as mark haas explain, the
6:22 pm
they prepare for thursday's game in san diego. >> reporter: the broncos knew that this would be their short week. what they didn't know is they'd be preparing for a thursday game against the chargers with an interim head coach. >> that hit a little bit today. on the way in. i can tell you that. the day before i was a little too tired, a little too irritated after the last game, but it's starting to sink in. it's a big responsibility. there's a lot of people dependent upon you. and i don't want to let anybody down. >> reporter: it appears trevor siemian will only has a few days to get ready without his head coach. >> i'd be lying if i said wasn't an adjustment. i think we miss him for sure, but i think everybody's trying to do their best to pick up the slack. coaches and players included. >> not going to stop and called timeout for us. we're going to keep doing the best we can and certainly we've all been here before. we've worked at it and everybody's going to do what
6:23 pm
call the place. wade phillips will handle the defense. it will be different not having kubiak around. >> i know he's going to miss the game. and we will miss him. and we're going to play for him. i'll tell you that. i'm going to talk to the defense and we're going to dedicate this game to him. >> reporter: phillips was asked if he thought he should have been promoted. he joked he was a lousy head coach and even worse as an interim head coach. with the broncos, mark haas, about thursday's game? coach issues? quarterback issues? bouncing back from a loss? there are lots of options on that list. go to the sports page on devote. preseason records me nothing but if jetblue -- had gone 0-6 in his first preseason it might because for concern. instead it's the exact opposite. the avs were 6-0. while records don't matter, the way they are playing does.
6:24 pm
that carries over once the regular season starts on saturday. >> we can see the benefits, we can see it even though it's preseason, it's not so much just about wins and losses. it's about trying to put good periods together and i think it's more about definitely the process as opposed to man, we're 6-0 and we're just keep trying to get better but it's nice to get some feedback that it feels like we're doing some doing. they are paying off. >> well after midnight so while you were sleeping early this morning the giants kept their world series hopes alive. giants and cubs played 13 innings last night, before joe panik drove home brandon crawford. that give the giants a 6-5 win. they trail 2-1, game four tonight at 6:30. certainly not lacking for drama in the mlb postseason.
6:25 pm
>> exactly. got to win game five if necessary. donald trump on the offense of going after people who are pulling back their support. why a republican in colorado is changing his mind about trump. more than a dozen children who all went to the same
6:27 pm
diagnosed with a rare form of cancer on my spinal chord. but i spent my whole life fighting back. so you can imagine what i thought when i saw donald trump say... "i don't know what i said, ah, i don't remember!" "that repoer he is talking about suffers from a chronic condition that impairs movement of his arms." i don't want a president who makes fun of me. i want a president who inspires me, and that's not donald trump.
6:28 pm
