6:43 am
redwood street exit. one of the cars flipped over, and the other also had a lot of damage. 6:42. this morning, as you pack your kids lunch or set aside lunch money, a new legal battle over nutrition standards. >> a look at what california is doing to make sure students are eating healthy. kira. >> hey, laura and marcus. a new lawsuit is taking aim at president trump administration which changed the standards for school launches. california is one of six states, plugs the district of columbia, suing the department of agriculture. the lawsuit accuses the agency of weakening knnutrition in schl meals. you might recall recently trump administration scaled back school lunch standards which had been implemented under president obama's administration, that less sodium and only whole
6:44 am
grains be served. last year it served an estimated 30 million children. as new york attorney general points out, for many the school lunch is the most nutritional meal of the day. for some, it's their only meal of the day. the attorney general writes, a healthy diet is important for all americans, but it is especially important for the development of our youth. by the way, a spokesperson for the usda declined to comment on the lawsuit at this point. this isn't the first time california has been involved in something like this. california has sued the trump administration 46 times on several different issues. we will continue to follow this one. >> the president is making ap peculiar attack. >> is he is accusing joe biden of being handsy. >> of all the people who might
6:45 am
throw that kind of stone, you wouldn't expect president trump. it takes biden's video, adds biden in behind him. we will presume the president didn't do the photo shopping. but he did post it to his account. the current president is making fun of the former vice president. inappropriate touching would be a tough issue if you wanted to run for re-election if he faced biden. let's talk health care. health care another issue where polls show the republicans would probably lose. but over and over this week the president insisted on talking about health care. on monday, doubling down on an attack against obamacare in the courts. he said he had a replacement plan. on tuesday, he said he would assign republicans and make a plan to vote on it. by the end of the week right here, he said the vote would come after next year's election. one of his biggest supporters accuses him, possibly sarcastically, of trying to lose the election. >> but what if donald trump had
6:46 am
decided he's had enough. too many investigations, too much nastiness, too few upsides. it wouldn't be a crazy conclusion. how would you like to spend your 70s locked in the white house. so say trump had decide\ed he wants to lose in 2020 and get back to his whole life. how would he do that? >> president trump will be in california today making an official -- mixing, rather an official trip with a campaign trip, first to the border with mexico and then to l.a. for a fund-raiser. we will of course be watching all of that. your midday news as well. follow me on twitter. >> thanks, scott. >> now a look at weather and traffic together on this friday morning. >> the rain today is what we have been talking about. a lot of people heading outside for the giants home opener, we have you covered here. tiburon, you can see the rain drops on the camera lens. it is a dreary start to this
6:47 am
friday. let's gte the kids up and out the door. we will see the rain holding off on martinez until 10:00. by 11:00, it's coming down heavily in spots. it will be quickly moving out. by 1:00 or 2:00, as you go back to pick them up, we should see things clearing out. that's a live look outside at the golden gate bridge. a soggy start to the day there. as you're getting dressed and standing in front of the closet, grab a hoodie or something like that. make sure you have the umbrella. you do want to make sure you're prepared. as we get a look at storm ranger, some of the scattered showers moving through. we are seeing the rain already starting to move in to parts of the san francisco area. and we have our own vianey arana out there live at oracle park watching the skies. oh, you have the umbrella up. it is already starting to rain there? >> reporter: it is. and i a cool clear umbrella. i don't know if you can see them on my umbrella.
6:48 am
but you can probably see them on the camera lens there. it did start to drizzle. yeah, we will be monitoring the rainy conditions. i haven't seen the san francisco giants tweet anything as far as any delays. but i do have a look at what your forecast will be right around the time of first pitch at 1:35. around 11:00 a.m., most folks will be here waiting to get in line. grab your umbrella. you might be waiting in line a little bit. we have shourbs at the top of the game. we might get a line of showers. hopefully it is fast moving. we're monitoring any delays as well. you are hroufed to bring them inside. they recommend ponchos so you don't block anyone's line of sight. what do you see on the field? that is the tarp.
6:49 am
ground crews have been up very early. prepped and ready to go. the tarp set up. we will checking to see what officials and the mlb decides. for now i would say put your hair in a bun, or a baseball cap, bring an umbrella and just wear your poncho throughout. >> are it will make it memorable for the home opener for the giants. right there over oracle park, that's what you were seeing there in the live shot. the pluck of the rain still off the coast. it is moving through quickly. that's the good news. this will sweep on through. we will go about the rest of our weekend with dry conditions. as we time it out, the rain getting going by 10:00, 11:00. moving through the rest of the bay area biff early afternoon in time for the evening commute, we
