7:17 am
the across and all of them had that likelihood of becoming severe at any given moment with the whipped and tornado warning. no tornadoes reported none i've seen out there they have not documented anything. definitely whipped damage yesterday with the very, very gusty thundestorms. so more today and again we have a chance that some of that could be severe. i'll show that to you in a second. 76 right now in town. gaithersburg is 73. a lot of lower 70s in suburbs this mornings. it's very mug why ape soupy out. there great words for that annie. muggy today and obviously pm thunderstorms again high temperature a little cooler. we're backing off numbers. i don't think we'll be in for a lot of sunshine yesterday. and a lot of rain yesterday and there's a lot of low level moisture present from all that rain yesterday. i think all these things considered will keep us only in the upper 80s to low 90s across the region and tomorrow a few more storms. it looks like they'll be very wide
7:18 am
in for more sunshine and temperatures into lower 90s couple spots tomorrow mid 90s as well. then we cool down after tomorrow. there's a chance again later this afternoon for severe thunderstorms. a very large area for that much like what it was yesterday. everything represents we could have a severe thunderstorm moving through this is light risk. we will have good possibility of severe thunderstorms and windy again as they came through and heavy rain too most storms will move along quickly. for tomorrow, marginal risk. slight lie lower for the possibility of severe thunderstorms. we're in the risk. with thunderstorms tomorrow we'll watch closely as well. i think a little more sunshine tomorrow. and again just a few thunderstorms is what we're expecting tomorrow up like today. so we're basically dry now. there's a little shower way out west
7:19 am
it appears to be a dying shower. and in the another complex back out to the west of us. yesterday morning we saw these complexes too. they were well up to north of us and trajectory if you will thomas bring them right on in. it looks these storms will stay south us to and break up. at least initial way. future cast seize cluster of thunderstorms farley well. look to see what it does. some of that sim energy comes along and finds more instability around the region we could expect thunderstorms popping up by 2:00 or so. after 2 expect thunderstorms to pop up. not everybody will get them. as it moves on across. we will have these throughout the afternoon and into the evening hours. then as we get into the late evening hours we'll watch and see. it looks like there's a chance the next round of thunderstorms late this evening and overnight tonight will set up to the north and
7:20 am
and primarily stay to the north of us but during the overnight, some of that will move across and bring us another chance of showers and thunderstorms. we get into tomorrow morning and it does look like tomorrow morning commute will be fairly dry. real quickly, humid today, tem tears starting upper 80s 11 a.m., lower 90s late this afternoon and again i think after 2:00 is a pretty good bet we'll be in for showers and thunderstorms. 7 day forecast. 92, 92, for today and tomorrow and we're into the 80s, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, so nothing changed. there definitely a little cooler this week. certainly a lot cooler this week than last week. guys back to you. >> temporary relief more than welcomed. >> as a welcomed change. >> we'll take it. >> time 7:20 coming up latest backlash in minnesota over innocent woman's death. >> officials in minneapolis on damage control this mor morning. we'll till the latest on this investigation

critical condition or very serious condition and they've been transported to a number of hospitals. we also had eight that were less of severity that have been transported by am bus to another hospital. and we utilize helicopters to fly patients out and utilize seven area thopts transport these people out. and our paramedics and firefighters found each one had heart rates over 130 beats per minute which again they were very hot to the touch. so these people were in the trailer without any signs of any type of water. >> again, this is a developing story. the driver of the truck is in custody. and has not yet been identified. and the department of homeland security is assisting in the investigation. >> that's the latest guys. back to you. >> thanks, anjali. this morning a broadcasting legend is fondly remembered and deeply missd nbc 4 long time anchor jim vance died yesterday he announced to viewers in may

8:33 am
>> describing him as alli when you heard him on friday, i mean, calling him alli seems like under statement the way he says he loves the pretz. >> super affable president swaggering wall street fin financeeer that's something trump likes to see up there. >> if you do a quick search you will see his television appearances during the primaries especially when backing scott warner against donald trump. is this a problem at all that you have somebody who is now running communications operations who was not only critical but was taking down candidate donald trump left and right when could going off on television as a pun dent himself. >> he said she would have backed trump but
8:34 am
transparency all tweets are critical of trump basically it's not necessarily a problem for trump in that trump himself has been vocal in support of democrats in the past and tried to pivot why bay from that. >> and it might ab little too soon to speak on this. base odd whan you heard or assessment of what we've seen so far when mike resigned adds communications director there was a lot of people that kind of said who is mike. i mean do you expect my expectation scarmoci may take on a vocal role and role the american public is aware of than we previous saw from the past quhun indications director. >> he is floating idea of coming back on camera white house briefings on regular basis and of course comfortable on camera. we'll see if he takes on that role huckabee sanders new press secretary. >> did that surprise you. >> there was rumors of more super starish people. deputy --
8:35 am
second in command and so it makes sense for her to takeover that role. trump you know kind of rapport she has with him app the way she steps into that role in spicer absence in recent months looks like it makes sense for her to do that. >> in many ways communications changed. it's a sales team they're selling a product. this while house has been embroiled in russia controversy and now had two successive melt downs in the senate on republican repeal and re place bill. and there does not seem to be a cohesive message about how they're going to get done things they promised to do. so, how does change in the communications team at all affect the policies and promises of this white house because communications team is only as good as product and this product has had trouble delivering on promises up to this point. >> that's something that will
8:36 am
trump goes out every morning and sends tweets not vetted by communication staff and not vetted by lawyers. even if they try to put a focus on healthcare and puts pressure on senators to debt this done that tweeting habit and him going out there and having his own message is hard to control. >> we actually have one of his tweets about healthcare and one of the reasons why i bring it up is question like sweet like this does it work or do anything? i mean does susan collins care that the president is tweeting that they need to repeal and replace? i can't imagine the senators like ran pal and susan collins respond to this when worrying about constituents. >> more respond to and trump yesterday is commissioning new ship calling on their constituents to call these representatives personally and put pressure on them. is that the something that these moderate senators and state that have expanded medicade that don't -- hav
8:37 am
huge cuts if this plans passes listen to constituents. they'll respond to that more likely. >> the other thing we're hearing push back on i've spoken to republicans in the past week getting tired of greek could us of the switer. they would like more activity from the white house and proposal rather than happening back in commenting on what's going on on the hill. you know outside of that visit we saw months ago from going&-út of teamwork. between what's going on in one end of pennsylvania avenue and republicans and other end up on the hill. >> puts in a rae accomplicement plan for obama er catch the house and senate start to go your own way. >> the first six months or year of any administration
8:38 am
course is most important part. >> timing. >> you feed to seize the time. >> so the first six months is passed. and it was always the plan healthcare tax reform and then go to some type of infrastructure. >> even though rehave not talked about infrastructure it's puzzling to me. politicians like to get behind it and you talk about new bridges and high was and the president spoke in his inaugural address that seems look a win, win for everybody. does that speak to the dysfunction going on here even the thing they agree upon they can't get through. >> that's something trump has gone back to a few times as they've run into hurdles for healthcare maybe she with you get bipartisan support like infrastructure. >> tom you moneyed teamwork. i interviewed
8:39 am
the whitehouse director of leming lateive affairs the conduit between white house and hill. i asked him a little bit about changing nature of what the president promised between repeal and replace at the same time and repeal and then replace. take a listen to this and we'll talk about it. >> what do you say to people who feel like he misled them. >> well keep in mind even if that is the option we end up doing is repeal effort now and looking to replace later that repeal sun sets obamacare oaf a couple of years. it's not immediate transition. so there would be a transition period. with stabilization resources to make sure markets are secure. >> again that was mark short white house director of legislative affairs. so i mean are republicans supporters of the president would they be upset with a repeal without replace? i mean is anybody really behind that? >> the conservative repu republicans of course are behind that in 20 -- >> is that only because they can't get it together. i think ideally they would like repeal with
8:40 am
immediately is that wrong? >> if you talk to the crews or mike lee some of these other conservative ones they definitely want to go to that 2015 bill that passed house in senate already and they want to push that through. so right now it's unclear. and i'll vote on clean repeal and vote repeal and replace legislation. mod rats don't want to just repeal it and hang it out owe to dry at a later time they wants something confirmed they can then point to for the constituents and say appeal yes but this is how we replace it. >> one of the reasons they pass the bill is because they knew it would die on barack obama's death. cbo did a score of that bill, 32 million americans would lose health care under that. and now, that's way above what these repeal and replace bills have been. so you're actually going backward in numbers of the people who would lose health care coverage. and contact republicans
8:41 am
to do that and then simply say to people, well trust us to get this done in the next two years. this is no guarantee they'll have majorities they have in both houses in the next years. >> there's outer pressure of trump saying he wants replacement and would prefer that to happen and he understands like people like west virginia and hoe owe areas mostly impacted by this if they wait to have some type of replacement it could be years. >> well jesse we can talk about what's going on white house hon the hill all day. we appreciate you joining us today. >> president trump was out in virginia this weekend. he commissioned new ship the largest aircraft carrier in the world the uss gerald r. ford named after 308 president of the united states who served owe warship would be the home to 4500 united states sailors the 12.9 billion warship is first of next den ration of nuclear powered aircraft carriers. >> wherever this vessel cuts through the horizon
8:42 am
will rest easy and enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that america is coming and america is coming strong. >> well the ford is the size of three football field and is most advanced warship ever built. uss ford will spend next few years going through testings before the next deployment which will take place in 2020. >> vice-president mike pence convenient toured to ohio this waekd for state of gop address in columbus. pennsylvaia says the state is still ared state and donald trump is cutting red tape for businesses. i did think it was interesting the fact he went to ohio where john kasich has been not really a supporter of the president. certainly interesting place for the vice-president to give those remarks. >> he seems to like to go back to places where he's done well. republicans know how important ohio is. you know hoe he is one
8:43 am
you can cover a lot of ground in one state. you have very urban areas through i 77 corridor going through cities like cleveland. columbus, down to cincinnati and very rural places and it's state that for many, many years determined who the president of the united states is. so you might look at watch and look at call sder and say 2017 is too early to think of this stuff. it's hospital inment they're already think about it and democrats are as well. >> and the topic of the state of the gop i think it's important one that republicans need to have. right they are having a bit of identity crisis. >> and especially if you look back to where we were this point last year in ohio where the republican convention was. john kasich was not in that hall. he was in cleveland. >> that's a great reminder of sglat we saw him he wouldn't go into the arena and a lot of other top name top shelf republicans didn't show up at the convention. john mccain was not. there a number of others were not there. so you know, yes
8:44 am
power and being in power and unified are two different things. >> those remarks that came out with jeb bush and mark cuban criticizing white house those cracks in the gop and what voice will be the most powerful and jeb bush is not a powerful voice in this conversation conversation and the fact there's republicans to pub guns the whitehouse like that they got to figure it out. >> there's some i told you sos going in some circles as well from jeb bush as well. so maybe he'll turn that around i don't know buy the miami marlins at some point. trying to work on that. &-ús part of a program to help veterans find a new career. you're watching "fox5" on the mill hill. stay with
