(laughing): i wrote a whole book about how the farm saved me and i completely meant it because, i don't know if you've heard, but, uh, i am nothing if not fully committed. (chuckles) i might've heard something about that. yeah, about those stories. they're all true. well, they do keep getting one part wrong. i didn't throw a chair.
i threw a table... at a chair... of the armed services committee. we had just been, uh, traveling through southeast asia, setting up aid programs when i found out this guy had let himself get bribed in the... the dumbest way imaginable and i just lost it. do i regret it? of course. and i worked like hell to get those people to trust me again, but the problem was i didn't trust them. the day i quit was the day i realized i didn't want to have to throw furniture anymore. but then you tracked me down at a pita place to talk about permafrost... yeah, sorry about ambushing your meal. no, no, no, i loved it. you knew you didn't have it yet and you weren't gonna stop until you did. do you know how rare that is? look, all i wanted to say was i know you're looking for a policy advisor and i want to throw my hat in the ring. i am open-minded but decisive.
i will walk through fire to make things happen for you and i promise my furniture- throwing days are over. you had me at permafrost. she actually threw a table at a senator. i mean, how often is the real story even worse than the rumor? you think i'm crazy for hiring her. what? sorry. look, i think i need to talk. it's about the leak that led to nafisa being taken. who was it? i still don't know. there's a task force looking at the agents being blown in multiple departments. okay. so, they're looking into it. that's good. but the blown ops, in order to have access to that level of intel,
you'd have to be on the president's cabinet. which is crazy. i know. that leaves only eight other people it could be. henry. someone in the congressional gang of eight could be selling out our country. i don't know who. i don't know why. and i hope to hell i'm wrong, but what if i'm not? captioning sponsored by cbs and toyota. captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org sofía, you stopped coming to the café. we have to talk. but you love my coffee. let's just say i found something better. can he make it rich? mm-hmm.

>> the do not call list is very effective at preventing calls from legitimate companies using legitimate telemarketers. the vast majority of tell marketing robo calls are illegal. and it doesn't matter if your number is on the do not call list. >> question two, i'm getting random calls from my local area code. are those robo calls? well, yep. it's true too. >> it's called neighborhood spoofing. so instead of calling you from a number that you don't recognize, that you probably will be a little suspicious about. they'll call you from a number that looks very similar to your own number. and that will in a split second make you maybe pick that phone up whereas before you would have questioned. >> so the fcc announced a new rule that targets those solicitors who manipulate the caller id. so we've also got a few apps to keep solicitors away on our website at wusa9.com/verify. so do you have a story or maybe something you

there. many of them are dead now. let's fix the problem. >> roy moore has denied the allegations against him and won't drop out of the senate race he says. all right, just before we get to howard and his forecast we need to talk about this. yeah that's snow? maryland. just a reminder we're inching closer to winter. now that's not really closetous, it's out in grantsville along i-68 that's like two and a half hours away something or so. >> garrett county -- and change or so. >> garrett county. >> if you really love snow and believe me hundreds of people are watching it right now. head over to the facebook page, we have a stream of it right now. i know you love snow. >> yeah. >> we don't agree on this. but that's okay. because -- we can still be friends and still work together. happily. >> yeah. >> how'd you do today in. >> well we're going to talk about that
snow and i wanted to talk about the travel weather coming up big travel day, big travel week but we're going to focus on wednesday. so this is what the models look like right now nationally. not bad at all. there's some storms on the west coast. and storms in the southeast and the northeast but the bulk of the country as we go from tuesday evening in toward wednesday. not that bad. we've got some snow showers coming across parts of the northeast wednesday morning. the rain in the northwest and also down across florida but generally, wednesday afternoon, look at this. pretty good shape across the country. so that is some good news, let's show you the travel forecast for wednesday. some rain up in seattle and portland. they'll be in the low erotize and looks great for the west. -- lower 60s and looks great for the west. even denver is going to be in the 60s and quite a chile around the great lakes and -- chill though around the great lakes and chicago. but this is doable. not delay any travel to or through chicago. texas looks good and the brownsville maybe a couple of showers there but the dope south? looks fine.
jacksonville. and we can see some earlier rains in the northeast but even here not so bad with a mix of wet flakes and rain there in maine but you know this could be a wheel lot worse for travel wednesday. now as far as the three degree guarantee we got to 64 early this morning. i thought it'd be a midnight high i went 61 and just made it. three degree off. so that's good. tomorrow, i'm forecasting 50 for a three degree guarantee. and there's going to be a chilly start with temps down in the 30s in moa spots and temperature -- most spots and windchills will be in the 20s. the temperatures hovering around 50 for the high in the middle of the afternoon. and looking around toward thanksgiving around here even that doesn't look bad. a little bit cool. yeah temperatures will be in the 40s and chilly but partly to mostly sunny. 30s to low 40s in much of the area now although still 45 at national. and the winds, they are up not like they were but still gusting to
there's dew points now down in the 20s. the futurecast shows the snow showers out there. lot of that will diminish towards morning as high pressure builds in. a cold start. it's going to be a chilly start to the week but sunny. tomorrow night, also on the chilly side. with lighter winds. and then as we head toward tuesday, see the mild air out to the west? that's going to build in so tuesday we're going to be back close to 60 in the afternoon but here comes the next front which will bring maybe a couple of showers. out ahead of it here overnight tuesday night into wednesday morning. but as that coast that comes up and this is going to help us. this front is going to kick this storm out to sea so that on wednesday. there's the storm. northerly winds start to build in. so colder air moves in later wednesday and in towards thanksgiving. giving us again nice travel weather and for the turkey trots football games or whatever you do on thursday yeah you may have to dress for the chill. but you won't be stopped by the weather. 20s to mid 30s tonight. clear to partly cloudy. breezy and
4:52 it was. 30s and 40s in the morning with the windchills in the 20s and your highs tomorrow upper 40s to low50s as winds go west even southwest at about 10 miles per hour. by tuesday, much warmer near 60 in the afternoon. mid 40s tuesday night again we could have that shower overnight. early showers southeast wednesday. 55. by thanksgiving, look back in the 40s. on friday, 52. terps boy they got penn state saturday coming to town. >> oh boy. >> weather going to be in the 50s for that. could be a shower late and then chilly again next sunday. darren here now with sports and looked good for 56 minutes down in new orleans. what happened? >> a lot of stuff had to happen and it all went down. i mean they had a 99% chance of winning this game. this was a redskins. and they blew it. we'll talk about it

...don't know if you can hear chaos me, here! can we get a shot of this cold front, right here. [vo] progress is an unstoppable force. brace yourself for the season of audi sales event. all right, here's what's on my mind tonight. i can't believe the redskins lost to the saints today. the skins were up by 15 points with 4:42 remaining. another way to look at it. the saints had a .2% chance of winning today's game at that time. you want to know how crazy the
chance of becoming the president of the united states in 2020 than the saints had at winning today's game at that point. yeah. the world hasn't seen a comeback like that since last year's super bowl when the falcon blew a 25 point lead against the patriots. as much as i wanted the redskins to win this game, and trust me, i did, i was your present day miss collie owe six days -- cle oh six days ago. i hope the redskins upset the boys trust me but on paper it doesn't look lie that way. my -- that way. my one word is loss. my prediction was right. however, it didn't have to be that way. so here's my one word for today's redskins' loss. it's disappointment. when i first move here, y'all tried to warn me saying the redskins love to get us excited and then disappoint us at the end. i wasn't having it. but i saw it today. the skins have allowed 89 total points in the final two minutes of each half this season. that's the most in the nfl. they'll need to win out
the playoffs. they won't win 11 plus games the last time they did that, 26 years ago. literally every other team in the nfl has done it since. even the winless browns. this is my producer tom i mean look at his face. born and raised in the dmv and told me this. today was a perfect example of redskinning. it's not even a word. but if it was, and needed a definition, probably mean frustrated. that's why that's my one word. here's jay gruden's words on the loss. >> that's what stinks you know. going the stink a lot of people. it stings everybody involves with the washington redskins that's for sure. i wish we could bounce back and have a short week. no easier the giants are coming to town on thanksgiving. have no choice but to keep grinding and battling. now the redskins suffered number of injuries this season. but this one is a big one. running back chris thompson. fractured his right fibula and will need surgery.
was carted off the field. now listen to the message he tweeted. he says this hurts not being able to go out and perform for my god who blessed me with this ability and the brothers and coaches and the fans. but if you know me you know i'm going to work my butt off. even better, than before. thanks for your support. now what makes this injury arguably the biggest this season is that chris thompson so difficult to replace. he entered today's game leading the team in rushing yards and receiving yards and touchdowns. to me chris thompson was a game changer and also the same guy who bounced back from a torn acl and a broken back. i'm confident we shall see chris thompson on the field again. now how do you feel about the redskins this year somewhere you hurt or disappointed or frustrated? or are you just used to it? let me know on our wusa9 sports facebook page and i will
191 to the rap tops but -- raptors but bradley peel finished with a team high 27 points today and now averaging 25.9 points a game this month. that ranks second in the nba in november. the raptors are in milwaukee tomorrow to take on the bucks. now here's -- bucs. now here's my final thought. dale earnhardt jr. even caught a pass from cousins this summer. it's pretty cool. now today dale jr. said good- bye to nascar after 18 plus seasons. he was motional about it -- emotional about it before and after the race and look at all the fans who wrote thank you to number 88 up and down dit road. that's -- pit road. that's why he was voted nascar's most popular driver each of the last 14 seasons. even a fan myself. after his final race, dale said he pulled into pit road and had a few beers with his team. i'm sure the next time the redskins play on sunday, dale jr. will be drinking beer this time with his
watching the redskins play. >> okay but will he be happy when he watches the redskins play next time or just used to it. >> i'm making my rediction now. they will -- prediction now. they will beat the giants on thanksgiving. >> you have heard it here. >> they will beat the giants. >> by the way nice picture in the uni with dale there. >> that was actually jimmie johnson. >> we'll be right back. >> all in
