A tough game for the Blazers last night, with the Utah Jazz handily beating the team 115-96. Check out the recap (and halftime fan photos) with our own Arthur Bradford!

The White House continues to be in turmoil following last week's resignation of a domestic abuser, Rob Porter. Chief of Staff John Kelly is in the soup for continuing to let Porter work there without proper security clearance, while Trump is stupidly tweeting out support for abusive men.

(Psst! Check out the new portraits of President Obama and First Lady Michelle!)

The New York attorney general has filed a lawsuit against Harvey Weinstein and his company for continuing harassment and defying state human rights laws.

Now let's look up at the WEATHER: A cold kickoff leads to a sunny day with a high of 50.
