"Two. Coming up. The of meet the press on NBC Chuck Todd is joining us and everybody. Also on the show ROY wood union is gonna fix the NFL. And you'll find out why you should be very afraid of a man named lollipop, but first let's catch up on today's headlines. Venezuela. Venezuela. One South America's most affluent nation. It has recently descended into chaos and violence kind of like how best buy is usually a chill place. But then on black Friday someone gets murdered over tosa. And that's not a joke, by the way. It's a true story. I'll miss yong-chol Billy. But I told you that was my toast, anyway, Venezuelans have been taking to the streets to protest food shortages and collapsing economy with ten million percents inflation, the men responsible for this is Ben as waiters. Authoritarian leader nNcholas Maduro, the people tried to vote him out last year, but he rigged election. And so now an opposition leader has stepped up to say Busta of island power struggle playing out in Venezuela opposition leader, one Guido swore himself in as president declaring the President Nicolas Maduro was unconstitutionally sworn in for a second term on a stage in downtown Caracas in front of a crowd of fouls. Thousands already five road. One though raised his right hand and administered his own oath of office. I swear to formally assume the powers of the national executive as the president in charge of Venezuelan. This is pretty historic a thirty five year old just swore himself in as the new president of an Israeli. Yeah. The world's first selfie inauguration. Very millennial very and not only ton of Venezuelan support one wider. He also has the support of major world leaders, including Trump Merckel Trudeau Theresa May Antoni the tiger. This is a big deal and now moving onto another phony prosperous country that is not falling into unrest. The United States. It is now day thirty four of the government shutdown the longest in American history and the effects continue to pile up a major border security conference has been cancelled flood recovery efforts have been stalled and the government is so broke. The secret service has now been replaced by mall cops and on top of all of that. President Trump state of the union address is officially cancelled overnight President Trump blinking in his state of the union staredown with Nancy Pelosi. The president writing the late night tweet. I will do the address when the shutdown is over. I am not looking for an alternative venue for the state of the union address because there is no venue that can compete with a history tradition and importance of the house chamber. Oh, look at that Donald Trump and Nancy Pelosi facing off and Trump blinked first, which of course, we knew would happen because Nancy Pelosi does not blink. Personally, personally, I think promoting the state of the union will be good for Trump's approval rating because Americans are very supportive of him. Not speaking is joy now for many people to shutdown still feels abstract especially if you don't rely on government for systems, you know, people like what do I care? I'm flying first class. Well, enough along pilots flight attendants air, traffic controllers are expressing growing concern saying air safety is deteriorating by the day, the government shutdown drags on their unions issued a joint statement saying they can't even predict the point at which the entire system will break. Oh, hell, no. They can't predict when the system."
