themselves in this situation, where they have the capability to help, they wouldn't hesitate and would try to help. >> the man accused of stabbing him was arraigned last month. humphrey said she adjusted what she would expect anyone to do, even though everyone is calling her a hero. san francisco mayor signed legislation creating the nation's first office of emerging technology. it will allow all departments to work with the city's fast growing tech sector focusing on public safety, privacy and security. the technology office would have to coordinate a review of any new devices before they are tested, piloted or launched in san francisco to make sure they are actually good for the public. a new law goes into effect january 1st but it limits annual rent increases to 5%,

highway 4 but that's about all, 680 looks all right. one more thing here, if you are driving on the peninsula, there is 880, it is doing well. >> that will be the forecast for today, looks like late saturday into early sunday when the rain will arrive. he will see the high clouds backup above the fog which is obscuring visibility for many. cloud cover will be moving over today and tomorrow, lifting northward so may believe partly sunny in the mix, but underneath that, there is a lot of fog being reported, not much a couple hours ago, but there is now. concorde m livermore and sfo is 32 three quarters, napa back up to one mile and about anywhere from about 02 through a mile, sam carlos say 10.

about everything from day one. your thoughts on republican thinking you? >> we have the most corrupt president in american history, he started on his first day of presidency and he started to obstruct justice almost as fast. if republicans are proud of the fact that they have the most corrupt president in american history, he breaks his oath of office on a daily basis, that he doesn't understand that he can't put himself ahead of the american people and he is subject to the law like every other american than i will accept their things because that is a shame and a stain on america, on the republican party and they have decided to put their party and their corrupt president ahead of the american people and the constitution, they should be
ashamed of themselves and i think the people can see what they are doing is absolutely wrong. >> moderator actually looked right at you and called you andrew yang, was that a little bit odd? >> look, i think you've got to give judy a little break there, everybody makes mistakes, i think she was under a lot of pressure. andrew yang happens to be a fantastic guy but he doesn't look anything like me. >> i bring it up because when i look at the box store this morning, bernie sanders leading the way with 20 minutes and 18 seconds, joe biden with 15 minutes, you and yang bounced around 11 minutes. do you feel this is the reason why you don't get enough minutes during the debate? >> i think and every one of these debates, my time is been going up and i've been getting a better chance like to explain who i am and why i'm running and why am different from
everybody else on that stage. i am never going to complain about it, you know, is everything fair in this world, now, but i don't need to whine about that, my job is to take advantage of my opportunity to talk directly to the american people and explain there is a broken government here, it is been bought by corporations, i've been taking them on and beating corporations for decades and if i get a chance to say that on national tv, i am never going to complain about it. >> you are a little different because when i am at home watching, what i see on stage is a business man, two of them, longtime politician and then a few years ago, look, businessman one. what did the clinton campaign do wrong, what a mess in the campaign and how do you use that to beat president donald trump? >> we know how trump is going to run because he said it last week and he is not a subtle person. he was talking to the a reasonably american conference,
these are american citizens, and he said you don't like me and i don't like you. but you're all going to vote for me because of the democrats get into office, they are going to take this economy in 15 minutes. you know he is going to run. we need a democrat who can take him on on the economy and expose him as a fake businessman and a terrible steward of the economy for the majority of americans. she was the best prepare to canada in history but she couldn't stand up to him on the economy, she cannot talk about growth and prosperity and what drives that in a way that was convincing. i think i can do that, i understand, i spent decades as a businessperson, starting a business from scratch and creating prosperity. i think president donald trump is somebody who is a fake. >> we got to go real quick but i expect a huge turnout in
november, but in the end, you guys can debate is much as you want, but isn't winning the nomination really about boots on the ground in iowa, isn't it about the trust of the people and getting that trust? >> absolutely, this is all about the american people, who cares about them, who will work at 8:00. i will do that. i want the chance to prove it. >> will have you back here in 2020 for another interview. >> that would be great, have a great holiday season. it is being called one of the largest drug bus on the
