7:06 am
at this. minden, nevada, on the roads we're talking up to six feet of snow. wind gusts could reach above 7,000 feet to 110 miles per hour, so it's going to be windy, snowy and look at all the advisories to kansas city, detroit, cleveland, over to western pennsylvania. it's two storms, the first one going to slide through pretty quickly. it's going to make for an ugly commute here in new york city early friday morning just west of boston or into parts of new york. then this weekend before you even think about the weekend storm you got to see how much of the country is going to be impacted by that second one, anywhere there from, say, nashville up to western new york. it'll start as snow here and then change to rain, george. >> ginger, thanks very much. we're going to get to the latest now on the government shutdown entering day 26 and the impact is growing across the country. from airports where some checkpoints remain closed to the economy as a whole, white house economists now warning that the shutdown is hurting the economy, could push the u.s. into a contraction as the administration calls thousands of unpaid workers back to their jobs. our senior congressional correspondent mary bruce is covering it all from capitol hill.
7:07 am
good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, george. well, with no end in sight the trump administration this morning is summoning roughly 50,000 federal employees back to work without pay. this is all an attempt to mitigate some of the impacts of this shutdown. some breaking nug, the speaker of the house nancy pelosi has just sent a letter to the president asking to postpone the state of the union. saying, quote, given the security concern, i suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has reopened for this address, or delivering your state of the union address in writing on january 29th. they're thinking about postponing the state of the union address. the two sides here are simply not talking. . the president has been trying to go around democratic leadership to meet with rank and file members. democrats haven't been receptive to those invitations. they boycotted the invitation

7:09 am
>> reporter: barr and mueller have been friends for three decades. i took that to mean he has respect for mueller, will defend him if necessary, but if barr disagrees with something mueller has done he will not be afraid to overrule him if necessary. >> what did he say about whether or not he would make mueller's report public? >> reporter: barr said mueller's final report will be confidential and that as attorney general if he's confirmed he will review the report, write his own summary and then decide what can be released to the public. if he's confirmed the buck stops with barr. >> all right, we'll see what happens. okay there, pierre. and there was a moment that charmed many yesterday. barr's 8-year-old grandson liam was there at the hearing, writing his granddad encouraging notes like this. dear grandpa, i love you so much. you are doing great so far. isn't that adorable? and p.s., i think russia's people are fine. it is the government is the problem. out of the mouth of the babes. senator dianne feinstein said the boy deserves a medal for
7:10 am
sitting through that. >> political analysis. >> political analysis. everything else, insight, supporting his grandfather. the women's march set for saturday steeped in controversy as the democratic national committee withdraws its support over march sponsors' ties to louis farrakhan. janai norman is here with more. >> reporter: we are a few days away and thousands are expected to gather in d.c. and across the country, but this year the rallies are under a cloud of controversy that has led to numerous groups pulling out as sponsors. the co-president of the march, tamika mallory, is under fire over her ties to nation of islam leader louis farrakhan who has made a number of anti-semitic and homophobic remarks in the past, particularly this instagram post from back in 2017, where she calls him the greatest of all time. on "the view" monday, mallory was pressed on the issue and said while she disagreed with some of his statements, she
7:11 am
refused to condemn farrakhan. since then the fallout has continued to grow. late tuesday, the dnc became the latest sponsor to pull out. other groups absent from this year's list of sponsors include human rights campaign and center for american progress. less than half of last year's partner groups are listed as supporting the march. now, abc has reached out to the women's march for comment but hasn't heard back yet. on "the view" monday the co-president, bob bland, says the group unequivocally condemns anti-semitism, bigotry and condemns any statements of hate. guys, back to you. >> okay, janai, thanks very much. we go overseas now and the future of britain and its prime minister, theresa may, in question after a crushing defeat. parliament voted overwhelmingly against may's plan to withdraw from the european union. the most lopsided vote in modern times. what happens next, no one knows. abc's james longman is there and the prime minister could lose her job over this. >> reporter: that's right, george, good morning. britain's prime minister theresa
7:12 am
may suffered the biggest defeat in a generation last night. her position as leader of the u.s.' biggest ally has never looked more uncertain and neither has the path to this country leaving the european union. the deadline is looming. if the deal isn't done in 72 days, we could crash out which economists warn could have dire consequences. the u.k. economy for instance hit by 8%. house prices down by as much as 30% and the pound losing more value against the dollar. a no deal would have a global impact. the division here is huge. lawmakers rejected her deal by a massive margin and today the main opposition party is forcing a vote to have her removed. she'll probably survive the crisis but the only thing we know is that we're heading into the unknown. >> okay, james longman, thanks very much. michael. >> all right, thank you, george. and now to the latest on jayme closs. the family of the 21-year-old accused of killing her parents and holding her captive for nearly three months is now speaking out as we learn more about her dramatic escape. now we go to wisconsin where
7:13 am
alex perez has more. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning, michael. jake patterson's family says he never had mental health issues growing up. his mother shocked after learning of his arrest, initially hoped authorities had confused him with someone else. this morning, a new look at the man accused of kidnapping jayme closs and murdering her parents, new images from thedailymail.com showing him in high school isolated while classmates take a group photo. yet, seen in this photo roughhousing with a friend. dylan fisher, a childhood friend of patterson, shocked. >> everybody liked him. he was a good student. he was pretty happy for the most part. >> reporter: the family of the man police say is a cold-blooded killer breaking their silence. his grandfather telling abc news, something went terribly wrong. nobody had any clue. we are absolutely heartbroken. it's wrenching to deal with, adding that his grandson was shy
7:14 am
and quiet. he backed off from crowds but a nice boy, polite. computer games were more of a priority than social interaction. >> you did cause the death of denise j. closs with intent to kill that person. >> reporter: but prosecutors painting a more sinister picture of patterson, calling him a cold-blooded killer who chose a 12-gauge shotgun because it would inflict the most damage, later burning jayme's clothing to get rid of evidence and forcing the 13-year-old under her bed, boxing in her with laundry totes and barbells. >> you did carry jlc from one place to another without that person's consent and with intent to cause the victim to be secretly confined. >> reporter: patterson's family struggling to understand what went wrong. his father and brother silent as they left the courthouse holding hands. loved ones saying his mother initially hoped authorities had confused her son with someone else. jayme, this morning, back home recovering. patterson has been transferred to a jail in a neighboring county.
7:15 am
he's being held in isolation. he could possibly face additional charges in the county where jayme was held captive. robin. >> alex, thank you so much. hearing details just so chilling. we have a new report about the super bowl and travis scott's decision to perform. "variety" saying that before he accepted, he talked to colin kaepernick, and gio benitez is here to tell us why that was. good morning, gio. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. "variety" says scott spoke with kaepernick about making a massive donation to a social justice group before he would agree to perform at the super bowl with maroon 5 and big boi. the rapper along with the nfl giving $500,000 to the nonprofit group dream corps. the league has struggled to fill the halftime show this year, following widespread backlash over the nfl's treatment of kaepernick who began kneeling during the national anthem back in 2016 to protest police brutality and racial inequality
7:16 am
but kaepernick's girlfriend said in a tweet that kaepernick did not approve of scott performing at the super bowl and kaepernick's retweets seem to suggest the same. >> really? >> yeah. very interesting. >> but they did talk? >> they did talk apparently. >> maybe they didn't come to the same conclusion after the talk but they talked. >> he reached out and dream corps really works on prison reform. there was a particular reason why he chose that nonprofit organization. >> that's right. that's right. absolutely. >> thank you, gio. >> thank you. now to an unbelievable rescue. a 96-year-old woman pulled from her vehicle moments before this happened right here. take a look. a commuter train near chicago slamming into her vehicle. there were some men that rescued her. they saw that the train was coming. they were brave enough to put their own safety at risk to help get her out. our abc station wls in chicago reporting she was apparently disoriented. she was taken to the hospital to get checked out. thankfully, no one was hurt. >> thankfully. that's some picture. let's go back to ginger. >> well, this image out of minneapolis will help tell the
7:17 am
story, but minneapolis has actually not seen a subzero temperature this season. and they usually see it already. so they may have their latest on record. they'll definitely get there this weekend because some big-time arctic air is pouring in. here's where it's going to settle. these are windchills so what it feels like. 25 below in minneapolis. 12 below kansas city, but look how far south it reaches. dallas down to the gulf coast. feeling like freezing and you say, oh, good, are we getting away with it in the northeast? no. it slides here and will come here so by tuesday, i think you wake up and say, ah, i thought we got away with a warm winter. nope, apparently not. it's going to feel like 7 below in new york city. 3 below in washington, d.c. all right, let's get to the rainy cities now brought to you by walgreens.

"dancing with the stars." >> oh, my goodness. i said to michael this morning, sequins felt really good again. >> i heard ginger walk down. >> aha. >> i'm home, i'm home. we're going to share that a little bit later. val, your partner, will be here. that's later this morning. but coming up, did you see this terrifying moment? a toddler thankfully surviving after her car seat went flying out the door. how did it happen? now the hero driver who stopped by to save the baby is speaking out. and youtube is cracking down on those popular prank videos. was the "bird box" challenge the last straw? highest life expectanciese in the country. you see so many people walking around here in their hundreds. so how do you stay financially well for all those extra years? well, you have to start planning as early as possible. we all need to plan, for 18 years or more, of retirement. i don't have a whole lot saved up, but i'm working on it now.

7:33 am
to flag down the person that lost the child out the back and they just kept going. >> reporter: authorities say the driver of that gray vehicle didn't notice the child had fallen out of the vehicle. >> she went through an intersection and at some point she puts her car over to the side of the road. it appeared that, you know, she left her car running and all of that. she just basically runs back to the incident location to try to locate her child. >> reporter: the toddler miraculously was uninjured. >> she wasn't out of it or anything but just very calm, very alert. >> it does appear that the child was restrained in the child seat, however, it wasn't tethered or strapped into the vehicle itself properly. >> reporter: experts say it's a common problem. the cdc says in 2016, 43% of children who died from car crashes were improperly restrained. that's a staggering number. we want to make sure that you have your car seat properly installed. the first thing you want to do
7:34 am
is check your vehicle's manual. that's right. just because it has a seat belt doesn't mean it's equipped to handle a car seat. once installed using latches, anchors or a seat belt in the case, you want to issue the inch test. the car seat should not move more than an inch in any direction. and finally, you guys, it's okay to ask for help. there are car seat inspectors that are out there. you can go to our website for more but there's nothing wrong with asking for a little help. >> nothing wrong with asking for a little help. remember to shut the door completely, lock it. lock it. >> i fell out of the car when i was a kid. >> it is shut. it is shut. >> what? >> george looked at me like that explains a lot. >> what happened? >> i fell out of a car. my mom went to the bank, told us not to get out. my oldest brother did because he wanted balloons and candy, didn't shut the door properly and rolled right into the intersection. >> how old were you? >> i got up running. >> that does explain a lot. i'm with george on that. i'm glad you're okay.

she swerved into another lane, crashing into a car. she could face reckless driving charges. but this morning, youtube saying enough is enough, announcing that they'll ban all challenges that present an apparent risk of death. the popular video sharing site issuing new guidelines that say we need to make sure what's funny doesn't cross the line into also being harmful or dangerous. our policies prohibiting harmful and dangerous content also extend to pranks with a perceived danger of serious physical injury. this new warning including past viral challenges like the tide pod challenge. >> do not eat. >> reporter: and the cinnamon challenge. challenges that were wildly popular with viewers, but sent many participants to the hospital. we reached out to youtube for comment late yesterday and they didn't reply, but with all of these developments, parents can take the proactive step of talking to their kids about what's gone wrong with online challenges and raise their consciousness about choices irl,
