Remember Bid on the Phone but watch here:  LIVE on O-N TV

A former Republican House Speaker says his party must stop underestimating President Biden. In a post on his website, Newt Gingrich said Republicans focus on the little things like the President sometimes having difficulty speaking. However, Gingrich argues the strong dislike Republicans have for Biden leads to the GOP underestimating him.        Over 200-thousand jobs were added to the U.S economy in November. The Labor Department says 263-thousand jobs were created last month. Meantime, the unemployment rate stayed at three-point-seven percent.        President Biden is meeting with the Prince of Wales in Boston. Biden greeted Prince William at the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum this afternoon. It's one of several stops William and his wife Kate, the Princess of Wales, have planned today.        Early voting for the Georgia Senate runoff election wraps up today. Democratic incumbent Raphael Warnock and Republican Herschel Walker are squaring off in a race to decide the nation's last Senate seat. Polls will also be open statewide from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.       The NYPD is warning about pickpockets at holiday spots in New York City. NYPD Sergeant Jimmy Freyre, [[Friar]] along with his team, are on the lookout for crooks with quick hands. Some of the prime locations for pickpockets include the Winter Village at Bryant Park, the Rockefeller Christmas tree and the holiday windows on Fifth Avenue.        The Christmas action-horror film "Violent Night" is bringing in one-point-one-million-dollars from Thursday previews. The David Harbour led film is expected to bring between ten and 12-million-dollars in its opening weekend at the domestic box office. It's projected to get beat by Marvel Studio's "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever," which is predicted to make between 17 and 25-million-dollars in its fourth weekend in theaters.
