5:48 pm
it the most. >> if you can also attach a note. being specific about what they do that you appreciate, that's nice. >> reporter: while she says cash and gift cards are always the best bet, if you're cash strapped, give anything, cookies, wine, something. after all, it's not really about tipping, it's about saying thank you. >> so are you wondering how much to tip? there's no set amount, obviously. just make it is more difficult for us. for a babysitter, you might want to consider a night's pay. for a list of suggested tipping amounts, go to our website, wusa9.com. >> most people agree you should give a little more around the holidays. 44% say you should. i get that. >> definitely hook up the folks that carry out the garbage, and the recycling in the neighborhood. >> the garbage. >> they're working their faces off. >> my garbage folks are gods. they're awesome. i take care of them, and i get a paper delivered, so we take ca o
5:49 pm
and the mail man. we're looking at really a cold front going through tonight. doesn't drop temps much. we will pick up some wind. a live look outside. it's still 61 degrees. dew points in the low 40s. winds still out of the south. winds are going to be with us all night, and help keep up the temps a bit as a cold front approaches. we've got to widen the radar way out. all the way to detroit, fort wayne. showers pretty close to cleveland. this is the front itself. it will roll through the metro area overnight. no worries for the evening commute. it will be well after midnight and those showers that roll through will not be a huge deal. breezy, and just milder tonight. lows in the 40s. maybe 50 downtown. bus stop temps, 44 to 52. still a pretty mild start. quiet weather ro
5:50 pm
country, with the exceptions of florida, and the pacific northwest. pretty comfortable. very comfortle for a walk after the meal. penn state coming into town. this is on saturday. temperatures 52 to 60. winds pick up southwest 10 to 15. another front will be approaching. that's why we get these bursts of cool air. cooler to chilly for thanksgiving too. 56 tomorrow. 50 on turkey day. back to 55 on friday. 60 for the terps. back to 49, and blustery, and windy on sunday. kind of like november should be, quite frankly. tonight, 10:00, temps still primarily in the 50s. maybe 49 in frederick. 55 downtown. 52 in bowie. 53 in bethesda. still mild, upper 40s, low 50s. i do think
5:51 pm
onto these showers a little bit long. i do think they'll be closer to the bay. nonetheless, they roll out quickly. by 1:00, already 51. temperatures a little cooler. hagerstown, martinsberg, winchester now back in the 40s. we're still looking for highs in the mid-50s tomorrow, even though the cold front rolls through. 52. maybe a shower early on, and lots of sunshine. temperatures holding around 50. winds increasing, northwest 10 to 20. 50 on thanksgiving, with sunshine. 55, milder on black friday. and saturday for the terps again 60. blustery on sunday. but it does not last long. we're back in the mid-50s on monday. back in the low 60s next tuesday. i guess kirk cousins didn't leave new orleans with the team on sunday. he stick around, and joined
5:52 pm
pelicans, and got ejected in his first start. the problem is, that's not kirk cousins. a newspaper made a big boo boo saying he was ejected from the pelicans game. clearly, they meant to say, demarcus cousins. kirk cousins had fun with the obvious mix up. this wasn't an online article where you can go back and correct it. this is in print. so it's forever out there, that kirk cousins plays in the nba. that's just the least of their worries. the redskins? they have so many injuries, they can't even practice. 22 injured guys on the squad. their game is against the giants, and it's in two days, people. >> they need to throw thursday night gas
5:53 pm
bodies. speaking for us. speaking for any other nfl team. it's hard for you when you just get on the field on sunday, and you've got to prepare in two or three days, and get ready for another physical game. >> most of the players we're playing with at the skill positions have been out there before. we have a can couple of exceptions, but you rely on those reps in training camp. >> if you didn't know, kirk cousins is 0-90 in his career. including 0-3 on thursday. there is good news. the last time the redskins were 4-6 going into thanksgiving, they finished the season 10-6. it all started back in 2012, when rg3 tossed 4 touchdowns, and beat the cowboys on thanksgiving. by the way, leslie, and adam, they made the playoffs that year. they did go
5:54 pm
>> yeah. >> okay good. >> that better beet the giants, that's all i'm saying. on the way at 6:00, president trump finally talking about roy moore, and came off his seeming to endorse the candidate. >> next, how a robot named rudy is helping to care for some local seniors.
5:55 pm
5:56 pm
5:57 pm
a start up in fairfax county is getting some attention. meet the robot named rudy. >> is the sun out? >> reporter: this is rudy. showing helping out is not just for humans. marie hasn't bought this thing yet, but she's giving it a try for us. for example, there are games, like rudy says. it also tells some jokes. >> my first job was working in an orange juice factory, but i got canned. i couldn't concentrate. >> reporter: jokes that would make your dad proud. then there's this. >> would you like to dance with me? >> reporter: yeah. this thing dances. playing an old glen miller song, it's meant to get seniors moving. >> really has a sense
5:58 pm
i think it's awesome. he's still in the mood. >> reporter: despite all that promise, the robot isn't perfect. sometimes it doesn't hear you, and you've got to repeat yourself. also, sometimes this happens. >> yes, how may i help? >> reporter: if there are too many people in the room it gets confused. despite those set backs, it's like being in a futuristic movie. >> something with harrison ford, or i don't know who. >> reporter: there's also this. >> i've never been good at video games, but i'm good at driving rudy. >> reporter: so long as there's wi-fi, she can video chat with her mom, and even control rudy to look around. toni says that's a big deal. >> i call her on her cell phone, she doesn't answer. i call her own the home phone, and she doesn't answer. now i'm panicking. with rudy, i can have her turn
5:59 pm
>> reporter: here's how the pricing works. you don't actually buy the robot. you lease it out, for however long you need it. it costs $99 a day. here's an important part of this. that includes three virtual check-ins per day from a professional caregiver. you pay for the service, not just the robot. we begin with breaking news tonight. president donald trump has broken his silence on the senate race in alabama. the president essentially endorsed republican candidate roy moore. telling reporters at the white house, we don't need a liberal person in there, a democrat. responses to questions about moore allegedly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. the president responded, he denies it. the president before leaving for the holiday at his mar-a- lago country club. >> you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours, he totally denies it. he says it didn't happen.
6:00 pm
listen to him also. you talk about he said 40 years ago, this did not happen. >> are you going to campaign for him? >> i'll be letting you know next week. but i can tell you you don't need somebody who's soft on crime like jones. >> the president's comments are at odds with most republican leaders who have called for moore to drop out of the race in alabama. the president's own daughter, ivanka told the associated press last week, there's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. moore has repeatedly, steadfastly called the sexual contact allegations lies. cbs and pbs have both terminated charlie rose over sexual misconduct allegations. eight women who either worked for rose, or tried to work for him on his pbs program came forward to "the washington post." they acc
