8:33 pm
many deaths should not remain as president united states of america people president trump argued that even as the virus rages the economy cannot withstand shutting down businesses biden's jab at the president is trying to wish away the virus. he says and we're you know we're learning to live with. >>people are learning to die with it it's not my fault that he came here, it's china's fault biden opened an attack on president trump and reports he's only paid a small amount of federal income taxes in recent years you have not released a single solitary year of your tax return. what are you hiding. why are you unwilling to foreign countries are paying you a lot i don't make money from china you do i don't make money from ukraine you do president trump threw punches, raising questions about biden's son's business dealings overseas, and he didn't have a job as soon as he became vice president. but richmond that did this look but not the best reputation in the world. i hear that paid him a 183,000. a month. there's a reason why he's but
8:34 pm
the ability all this more key. there's a reason for he didn't want to talk about the the so the substantive issues it's not about his family and my family. it's about your family differences emerged on health care no longer is obamacare because without the individual mandate. it's much different preexisting conditions will always stay when i'm going to do is pass obamacare with a public option. become biden care public option is an option that says that if you in fact do not have the wherewithal to be if you qualify for medicaid. >>and you do not have the wherewithal. the new year state to get medicaid you automatically rolled. >>this final debate comes very late in the process are only 12 days left before election day and already more than 47 million americans have voted. we're live tonight at the final presidential debate in nashville, i'm tahman bradley. >>but thank you on certainly a much different affair
8:35 pm
reciate that live report will tonight's debate really did have a totally different feel from the first one it certainly did inside bay area politics host catherine heenan talk to our political analysts to get their reaction from tonight, katherine what were their take a ways well not that the bar was set really high right after the first one. >>but yes, it was a lot more the president was last combat of joe biden apparently did not do anything to in danger his lead in the polls. here's a little of what our analysts thought. >>i mean the president actually did do better actually like well that's pretty basic. there was such a low bar considering the first debate. he did much better this time around. i thought he did it had a very strong 2nd half of the debate quite frankly, and in the end. that one question at that last question may kristen welker about leadership and he just went back to us. it went back to a campaign speech biden took it to the american people it was important for the president to highlight issues for people of color different
8:36 pm
he talk intelligently when challenged by the vice president. >>about issues of prison reform. >>mandatory minimum sentencing. >>you talk about the first step back. is done a number for people of color in african american communities. and so i think he did tremendous job defending himself i expected the vice president to do a lot more especially on the on the top of covid-19 job, the president for not doing a good enough job and didn't have proposal himself when he came down to it. >>all right we don't know that debates move the needle much as they as the campaign drags on and in some ways when you're spending the first 25 minutes of the debate talking about covid and the pandemic it is the weight of that that really upsets everything that's going on with the incumbent because it goes to the economy goes to health care it goes to protest in the streets and that makes it very difficult for any incumbent, not just donald trump. well again we do get back to the
8:37 pm
question of how much all of this really mattered again lot of people have voted most voters have made up their minds. >>but it was a last chance for americans to see the 2 candidates on stage together sometimes elections or want to one around the edges could be happening. we'll hear more from our analysts at 9.10 grant and vicki. >>appreciate a catherine wheel. many lawmakers of course we're watching tonight's debate in some have started weighing it we're joined tonight by representative barbara lee to get her reaction. to what we saw congresswoman, thank you so much for joining us. >>yes happy to be with yes so i think it's not a mystery who you're rooting did joe biden make his pitch to the american people. he absolutely did i think the contrasts was so start tonight. >>first of all the vice president of was presidential. secondly he talked about in detail. many of the policies
8:38 pm
that he intends to move forward on behalf of the american people. thirdly i hear i heard was in a position to talk about what he would do to covid-19 and he put it in the context, attacking the health and economic crises. donald trump of course as that we have to learn to live with in over 220 some 1000 people have died now vice president biden i understand that this can happen anymore. this can't go on and so i think tonight he show that he understands the death and destruction this taking place as the result of the lack of leadership and this election is really a matter of life and death. >>congresswoman lee there are some undecided voters at least if you believe the polls who do you think they are and what do you think there waiting to hear or see as we're now less than 2 weeks from election
8:39 pm
day. >>there very if believe the polls right now in terms of undecided voters. >>i people want to hear what vice president biden intends to do as president how he intends to bring the country together i think is close was magnificent. how explain that he was going to be the president for everyone and i think independence understand that is difference president donald trump, i mean donald did you know independence, i'm sure are looking at the 500 and some children who still don't have their parents with but separated and the parents who knows where they are. tomorrow disgrace and i believe because they care about people and the children see vice president biden.
8:40 pm
understand that these children need to be with their parents donald trump just says you know there and clean facilities and they came here with coyotes and you know it's just such a disdain for these children and for immigrants and so i'm confident that independence will also look at is the vice president said about health care here you have donald trump supporting and promoting a lawsuit before the supreme court is going to take away health care from millions and millions and millions of people so i think the choice is very clear many independents who i know care about the people and the values that vice president not see tonight and who he is as a human being. >>congresswoman lee they waited into the waters at joe biden did alternative energy sources and moving away from oil. it seemed. it's a big
8:41 pm
topic of course with the green new deal people but was that was at a bold move for him to do. >>it's a very bold move. but when you look at the democratic party platform. i was on the drafting committee. a lot of times people we don't read the platform, but is very clear in terms of the vice president's position on moving to a solar to wind and he was very clear again in terms of where he thinks the economy is going in terms of the creation of good paying green jobs. he was very clear on on climate change and global warming. and so i think he put forth a very balanced approach to climate change. he put through love but florida but i think a excellent plan for job creation and economic growth based on this new green economy which we in california have led on. forever and so i the country sees the
8:42 pm
difference and i hope going back to independence. i think they see we have to become energy independent and we have to create good paying jobs and that's the says of much of our economic growth and job creation. >>all right congresswoman barbara lee unfortunately have to leave it there. thank you for your time representing the 13th district in the east bay have a good night. thank you congresswoman, thank you very much nice being with you and we've been keeping track hard to believe we're less than 2 weeks away from the big day 12 days to be precise kron 4 of course your local election headquarters this election season. still to come in tonight's flying tails national effort to spread awareness on the importance of caring for senior dogs. >>and 7 republicans pushing past a democratic boycott to advance judge amy coney barrett supreme court nomination. as they say that they will work through the weekend to get her confirmed to the high court.

plays of course there's that nfc championship and super bowl appearance as you see right there. but this marriage almost didn't happen you see when jimmy g takes the field at gillette stadium on sunday. it will be the first time he's returned to new england since the new england patriots traded him in 2017 and by all reports new england coach bill belicheck wanted jimmy g badly, even jimmy g thought he was going to be the heir apparent to tom brady. but patriots owner bob kraft clearly had other plans. both teams have seemed to benefit from that trade the patriots went on to win a few more super bowls after that and tom brady didn't have to look over his shoulders or get pushed out the fold by bill belicheck and the niners they got their qb of the future who has already led the organization to a super bowl in his first full season as the starter. there were many reports that bill belicheck wanted to keep jimmy but bob kraft he had those other plans. however it transpired jimmy has nothing but good things to say about his former team.
