To politics now -- and another moment in history.


Tomorrow the electoral college will cast their votes to elect joe biden to the presidency.


But president trump is still insisting...he's not done fighting to stay in power.


Cbs's chip reid is at the white house.


Pkg: president trump spent this unseasonably warm december day doing what he so often does on weekends -- golfing and tweeting.

"most corrupt election in u.s. history!"

He wrote this morning, continuing his angry tirade against joe biden's victory and against the dozens of courts that have dismissed the president's challenges no judge, including the supreme court of the united states, has had the courage to allow it to be heard.

Republican chris christie today disagreed "the reason the supreme court is not taking this is not because of a lack of courage.

It's for the same reason that every court has thrown this out - it's a lack of evidence."

But the president still says he's not giving up no, it's not over.

We keep going and we're going to continue to go forward.

A new cbs news poll says 62 percent of the nation's voters feel the election is "over and settled" but 79 percent of the president's supporters believe the election should be contested, although 51 percent of trump voters say he should concede if the electoral college votes tomorrow for biden as expected.

Even if the president does concede retiring republican senator lamar alexander said today he wouldn't bet against him in four years no, he will be a force in our party and country as long as he wants to be.

Tag: asked if he plans to attend joe biden's inauguration president trump's said quote "i don't want to talk about that."

Mr. biden is planning to take up residence here in less than six weeks.

Mom to mom is after the break.??

Stay with us.


Welcome back, this week on mom to mom we are giving our furry friends a delicious treat.


Mandy shows us a quick and simple recipe for dog treats that's sure to keep those tails wagging.


Will it get a thumbs up or thumbs down?

Take a look.


We love our fur babies, right?

Well, today on mom to mom, we're going to show you how to make a treat they're going to go wild for.

Today we're making peanut butter banana dog treats.

It's super easy to do, three ingredients.

We've got out banana, we've got peanut butter, and we've got our ground oats.

First thing you want to do is set your oven to 350 degrees.

Then, you want to mash your banana up, which i already have in the bowl.

Then we're going to throw in our peanut butter really quickly.

Basically, you just want to use a cup of peanut butter, which i already have measured out.

And then you want a cup and a half of ground oats.

What i did is i put this in a blender, and i got them nice and fine.

So we're just going to throw those in together, and then we're going to mix it up.

To save time, i already have some mixed up and ready to go.

I did chill it for about an hour just to get it nice and cool.

I also saved some of the oats that i had off to the side, just a little bit, because you want to put it mom to mom.

Intro clouds can certainly make for a gloomy day, but did you know they actually have a big impact on how cold it gets at night?

Meteorologist trevor birchett explains why in this week's weather whys.


Have you ever noticed that on a cloudy night, temperatures don't get as cool as they do on a clear night?

Have you ever wondered why that's the case?

Well, the answer has to do with sunlight and heat.

During the day, the sun adds heat to the earth's surface, warming up our temperatures through the day.

Once the sun sets, that heat that was built up all day at the surface then rises back into the upper atmosphere, allowing us to get cooler overnight.

Now, here's where things get tricky.

When we're cold, one of the first things we do is grab a blanket.

A blanket works by trapping our body heat and not allowing it to escape, keeping us warmer.

Clouds work in the same way at night.

All of that heat is trying to escape, but the clouds keep it trapped at the surface, which keeps us a few degrees warmer.

So, if clouds are ever present overnight, we won't get as cold as we would on a clear night.

Pretty neat, huh?

If you have a question about how the weather works, let me know!

You can reach out via social media or email and you may see your question answered right here next week.

Until then, i'm meteorologist trevor birchett.
