closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former

How did Nintendo clean up at the Game Awards?
"Quick news the games last week yes and it was last year. Had the reveal joker for Super Smash Pros. It was it was a big year for the game origin. For Nintendo. This year was a little quieter for Nintendo. They're only kind of three key announcements. That were Nintendo related. Yeah I know Jeff Jeff Keely who runs the show tries really hard to get some cool stuff for Nintendo fans. Every year he was able to get. Reggie the retired. Reggie to speak and had a really uh-huh elder really nice speech about working with misdemeanor. Really Wa really liked that speech is like and that's why the winner for the best indie presented by subway. Eat fresh like. Oh there's no way around that but by now the three big things that were announced for switch or and there's more within this in terms of games that are also out on switch coming out on switch but the big main switch focus. Things were bravely default to announced which is not the second nonstandard. It is not bravely second. Yes yeah but bravely default to is being worked on also by the Octopus Traveler team which is pretty exciting bravely. Default is a feeling of flies a little but under the radar sometimes And it's a very cool. RPG and still hampered by one of the worst names for any RPG in the history of the third game was called called bravely default to second gets even better really good franchise I I that was surprising to me. That will get one. That's really cool and we also also got a new number. Here is three trailer. No new information about number Harris three we still. We already knew the release window. We already knew most of the stuff that was in the trailer but it was a really funny trailer now is really cool and then we also got deal see details for the rise of the Phoenix. Marvel ultimate alliance three deals and that that was kind of it in terms of which focus and it was a good show knocking the shows in general but like we got a message on twitter. That was like this seemed like a way weaker year for the game awards from an NBC fan. It's like well if you're Nintendo Fan. Yeah it was a little quieter. No no breath of the wild to teaser. Right like the game game awards and is wonderful sequence showing us You know the kind of like the serene landscape and attack sequence from the first game and the joker revealed me even two years ago. It was the deal. See out now that thing I think the thing is though as much is. It's a lot of times. They're like these surprise game announcements or just in general announcements at the game awards. It's still primarily just an award show on show I think people because there have been such cool announcements in the past especially in intendo related. The drawback there is kind of made gave fans an expectation that maybe in some ways doesn't really make sense considering that still just an award show but also if if you've gotten used to seeing these big moments when it doesn't happen suddenly feels like oh well. This wasn't as good as it was before. So it's it's a fine line to walk will and here's the surprising thing to me. He is if you go to the fighter pass the Smash Bros Fighter Pass. DLC Page it still says and it's said this since December when the game launched that they have by February twenty twenty to release all of the fighters and so we know for sure we are getting the last fighter in that fight hers. I fighter pass in. The next is two months and we don't know when they're going out to it. We don't know what it is this morning in Santa's sack or bag Santa. The character I'd I'd be cool with that all every awesome what it was like Santa from clay fighter. Sixty three and three thirty Kim. Yeah love that game. It'd be actually pretty. That may it means that they're they're basically sitting on it for a nice direct in January just took the year off which I'm cool with two. We'll probably get more animal crossing details in that direction. Correct as well right. It's not it's not any you don't need any sort of insider information to be like. Yeah there's probably going to be a director Lee. Next ultimately the treat intend offense at the game awards was that Smash Brothers won the fighting game. Category that game because the game awards early in December the smash was beyond the cutoff last year. It was our fighting fighting game of the year. In two thousand. Eighteen should obviously in so eh best soundtrack of yeah. It's just there's no alligators right. It's pretty amazing soundtrack. Soundtrack Gum to training really good music does have given fan like it was a good year for music and Games. To be honest it was a there. Were a lot of really good soundtracks.

"Sea-tac airport's. Because the last storm led to dozens of flight delays. The airport says that it has a fleet of snow equipment ready, including forty icing trucks and dozens of class to help keep the runway clear when the snow hits later this afternoon. And as always if you have travel plans do check your flight status before you head to the airport. Seattle Tacoma, Bremerton, Mercer island and central Kitsap.

He was arrested Friday early morning and charged with obstruction of an official proceeding making false statements and witness tampering. Acting White House chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, says all employees should get their back. Pay miss during the thirty five day government shutdown by the end of this week on face the nation on CBS Mulvaney said it depends on which payroll provider is used he said some could be early this week. Some of them may be later this week, but he hopes everyone will get their money by the end of the week national security adviser John Bolton is warning about any harm coming to American diplomats in Venezuela Bolton writing on Twitter that violence would be met with. A significant response the US announced last week it no longer recognizes nNcholas Maduro is that country's president. Instead. The US says one Guadagno is the country's interim leader, I new poll shows trouble for both Democrats and Republicans only thirty five percents in new ABC news Washington Post poll expressed confidence in Donald Trump to make the right decisions for the country's future. And things are not much better. When it comes to people's views of congressional Democrats ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts is with a Steve good morning. What do you make of these numbers? What I make of it as the country really soured on Washington. They've been that way for a while. But the shutdown. I think only made it worse. And you're correct in saying that the democrat that public does not have any more confidence and Democrats, and they do have in this president. But when you look deeper into this poll, this is not good news for this president. We averaged the favorable ratings for Donald Trump over two years, and it came to. Thirty eight percent now in to put that in historic context. There have been twelve presidents since the end of World War Two and modern polling began Trump is the only president who's unfavorable ratings are higher than his favorable ratings. In fact, his average positive numbers are the lowest by far of any of those twelve presidents, the other presidents altogether. The other eleven their average rating for their first two years was sixty one percent favorable Trump as I say at thirty eight. So this is basically the core of support for this president somewhere between about thirty five and thirty eight percent, we asked for instance, this is the wall. Make you say for thirty five percent. And that's that's where the the president has a fervent and loyal base. But it's nowhere close to a majority in our numbers are showing that and when you thinking about running for reelection if your basis thirty five to thirty seven percent, you gotta be a little worried before we let you go. Steve our big story here is that the former Starbucks chair. Howard Schultz says says he's seriously considering a run for the White House as an independent. What's your reaction? I think that is really bad news for the Democrats. We know Trump got forty six percent of the vote. It's very hard to see how he could get a majority of the vote, but if a third party candidate drain support from a democrat that is very good news for the president. Let's remember Bill Clinton won in ninety two in part because Ross Perot got nineteen percent of the vote and and drained votes away from the Republican and he won forty three percent of the vote. So if. If I were the Republicans od be donating a lot of money to Howard Schultz, and and try to keep him in the race because that would be very damaging development for the Democrats. Steve thanks for your input. Again this morning. ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts said Donald Trump about a few minutes ago. Just tweeted about Howard Schultz, saying the chills doesn't have the guts to run for president. The president says watched him on sixty minutes last night. And I agree with him that he's not the smartest person. Besides America already has that says the president, and then he adds I only hope that Starbucks is still paying me their rent and Trump Tower.
