administration. i mean everything about but the bridge. >> i suppose the questions the medias have not necessary focused. he am glad they are getting the bridge done to the pont you made. he wish some of the traffic shores would have been lavated eight years ago with the tunnel. i mean, nothing exists. we have to consider things that happened in the past and things in the future. what i think that is governor crest ty made a bad decision going to the future. it is a great deal. well, is it fair? you got a governor saying look. the reason i turned down. it would have been billions in recover reasons that the state of new jersey would have been responsible for and now the vice president going back. no, that he is true. we had al the money four. who do you believe? caught in the middle. who speaks for us? >> ho one speaks for us, actually. they go back and forth bickering who knows the truth. bill: are you surprised? you got bob menendez.
the man is on trial for corruption and bribery. would you never know. walks out of court. he is at the press conference. he is a the groundbreaking. is it sur flat? is surreal. surreal because we have i can't think of the last time in the last 20 year whens we had a sittinger? on trial. criminal defense goy. as a for prosecutor you like to hone in on the presumption of innocence then again if you have to take care, as an attorney, you to teak care of the client. let's concentrate on the trial. bill: beyond that, going door to point i said earlier nim said this and i talked about this. when they asked a question you tell every polls the audience is never going to har the question. they will only har the answer. these guys came in with talking points to further their own again. >> i continue know senator menendez wanted and it was ask. at your point, i wouldn't have it any other way. i think the senator is doing his job. he is in a legal battling now.
that is the glory of the democracy. he will go through legal battle. he will result in one of two ways then in 2018 the other end kicks he will be up for re-election if he chooses to seek it. this is a full proof system in many ways. i mean teems every once in whale. something happens like this. i wouldn't have it anticipate other way. >> well,s the governor right that biden is a beth of a hypocrite not turning pack, putting back the money got from what some have called the seep predator? harvey weinstein? >> well, that islam. i mean, first of all, i done know if that is true. secondly, the question is every posts about giving money back regardless of what harvey weinstein is. where does that money go back to harvey weinstein. if it was for a ledge mate cause and thur ferness of the legitimate agenda then what is the difference of where it came from? that is no way to condone what he is accused of doing which
seems rong. u got leave it there. thanks. bill: battle over the campfire. not talking about s'mores. the boy gout souths and girl scouts wrang length over a change that the boy scouts have made to start admitting girls in 201. the girl scouts are saying not so fast. we think there is val in having separate groups for east gender. with president to check in with one of the voices that is pushing back, the ce of the girl scouts of northern new jersey. her name is betty. bt ty welcome to chasing news. >> well, i happy to be here today to talk about the girl scouts and the amazing things we do for our girls and young women. betty, is this about a decline in membership in trying to hold on to members? is there some value in what you are saying is a safe space for girls? >> no, society places so much pressure on the young people and they learn it at such early age. you know, boys and girls understand what is happening in
society, and social media has really added and amplified that message to the young people, so for our girls and our boys to have the own space to be in a single gender organization, it is really important. they get try new things. they get to fail. they get start over. they get to do that. >> what he is the value of gender specific activities and do you think the boy scouts made a mistake planning to admit girls next year? >> um, for me, you know, i don't know a lot about the boy scouts. i think that you know, it is not a one size fits all package. our girls need, the boys need very specific environmentists, so one of the words i am hearing is convenience. it is convenient for the family. well, building leaders not always converyient. convenient is going to ealmost the gender inac tyes that exist in today's society. how would you andel a transgner
issue. there is a tamly that wants to have a boy admitted to the gel so you cans who is identifying a as girl. >> if that is -- we are for all girls. so if that child, identifies as girl. girl scouts is an accepting end cluesive event. >> thank you, betty. apurchase at the time with us today. all right. guys. het me start with you. no i, the point about gender spatic activity for boys and girls. she mid a great point about young women getting a start p. what do you think? >> i think i agree it should be kept separate. i think that organizations that are meant hengels are wrong and meant to instill for girls to be kept separate and those institutions for boys, for boys. >> the truth that is boys in today's society are facing challenges that railroad scary two and a half times more likely to drop out of high school. five times more likely to commit suicide. the academic rates are fo where
near ha they are for girls. i went to high school with boys and girls. you served in the marine corpsment? i played a hockey game last night with men and women. i think, it would be credible? i don't know. >> generally speaking though? maybe the fact, do you see this, to me, i find it disappointing we had gender line, then he is unfortunate because people think if you keep them separate, somehow you are bringing someone down. i done sew it that way. >> no, look. you mentioned in the military. in sports. we have separate locker rooms. the truth is the lessons you learned from the my rens and the less so in have learned from the athletic life didn't crom the locker room. the positive once came on the ice or the field. in the field of battle the sam way. i think mean, i think, families are going to mca choice. i don't think the girl scouts are going to lose much membership and not popular.
if there is something like this. sure. >> we got to leave it there. here is a look at headlines we're chasingchasing tonight. >> president trump came down hard on iran auction the government of slight the spirit of the 2015 incomier deal but refused to scrap the agreement all together take it back to congress. >> the iranian regime has committed multiple violation. >> acran has used a nuclear deal to strength in the military and missile program and refusing to recertify and different from revert certification asking law knee, mack it tough we're tougher pun shalls for iran if it fails to come ploy. friday the 13th. thin air flight departed copenhagen en route to help. for one of the final flights before the airline renamed the route at the end of the month. bruce springsteen made the broadway debut thursday night opening the show. the show called springsteen on
