attack happens so trump blames and then boards a brewery in malaysia citing intelligence either to secrets or too shameful to show anyone you decide we spoke with middle east analyst who believes the incident reveals there is a little intelligence cooperation between washington d.c. and baghdad the classic justification for not sharing such intelligence is normally that you know there are affiliated elements within iran and so probably such intelligence could be leaked but at the end of the day you know if there is something serious then probably at least there needs to be some intelligence cooperation the united states never has the whole truth probably they need the iraqi side its side of the story or version of the events so they would go and have

12:22 am
look at some reports it sounds like russia's dusted down its good legs we have total imprisonment all of it looks so surreal people in full body chemical protection suits are constantly coming in but many of the guests have been taking to social media to show just what their temporary lives are like to send you a callar is one of the only bonus here is our room and everything is very good there all the basics. you can easily live 14 days here there is a shower and a t.v. . fridge which i haven't used yet. so wardrobe and a mirror when i come into ringback the room i found fruit sweets and tea on my table everything is good cosy i'm happy. with the evacuees provided up to 4 meals a day one complaint mentioned they're not allowed to leave their rooms despite this they can chat to their roommates some have been working out but most reading books
12:23 am
or watching t.v. . has plenty to fill the time. so i'm planning to do my chinese language studies now that i'm going to read i've already done my exercises so i need to stay active and now sit around doing nothing. evacuees are under the close watch of medic. we make sure that we do it but if you do doctors check us morning and evening to take our temperature or listen to how we breed examine our throats. the evacuees are showing any symptoms of the virus and if you studies that way he should be able to head home. the impeachment proceedings fell through in the u.s. senate president trump's opponents are not backing down in their attempts to discredit him one of the recurring themes employed by the democrats has continued to be the allegations are brush and collusion now meet him in a lot of as a bridge on the entrepreneur and pop singer who the investigation suspected of
12:24 am
being part of alleged russian meddling the reason apparently being the fact that he was one stall trumps business associate parties oksana boycott got to talk to the man who is believed to have arranged the much reported on meeting between donald trump jr and russian national. it's a quick preview of that interview. the now infamous trump town meeting between. the russian lower and the. do you think this whole thing was. how africa. on the your side on my side. 100 percent it was handled ethically. simply for the reason that i was always ready to testify and we reached out and said the u.s. senate is coming to another states and allocated 2 weeks for my tour to you know testify to congress to the miller to speak to them to whoever wanted to speak to me about this whole set up my only negotiation. aspect was that i want to do it
12:25 am
voluntarily so i don't have to get stuck in the united states and the miller's team replied that it can only be mandatory which would mean i would have to stay in the united states that the investigation finishes which at the point was over a year in progress so i thought the main reason for why you care was the only reason because of course he wanted us to again because i had another but $110.00 shows that year that i would have to risk because i'm stuck in the states and these are major financial risks as well so all i canceled was the american tour which cost me about half a $1000000.00 in personal losses but we did return tickets and now we are heading for the store again i think everybody should be realistic if there's you know this whole spy thing going on between russian america i would not be involved my manager music manager would not be involved i don't know why by the way i was a manager for michael jackson as well as another 20 years ago.
12:26 am
you can catch that interview in full on our website r.t. dot com. california governor gavin newsom is facing a backlash after mulling a 3 year suspension of state fitness tests for schools that's over concerns it promotes bullying and discrimination of non-binary students however the move is widely being mocked in media and online. california is considering stopping physical fitness tests in schools over concerns they lead to bullying and body shaming so good job getting gym cancelled you fat loser. we all know what he's called body shame you without the metrics. that says you're weird logic is like what the bullies is going to be they're like oh man i want to give you a wedgie so bad but i just don't have the data. how about they just stop the students from gender identifying and keep the fitness testing
12:27 am
common sense is gone now they do away with things that are good for kids because i'm on your board stressed about not wanting to be male or female new someone just a little bit of mind left when do people wake up being trans is a lifestyle nothing to do with biology gavin newsome is all sorts of wrong for california the physical fitness test is in fashion aiming your enabling bad decisions and laziness. school fitness tests were introduced back in 1998 among other things they include a one mile run pushups and a body mass index test that's used to screen students potential health problems however critics say the test is discriminatory as it require students to identify either as male or female under current state regulations students in grades $57.00 and $9.00 are required to take a physical fitness test we put the issue up for debate with media commentator and
12:28 am
psychotherapist mark rutherford. the fitness tests although are a mile marker to help indicate for the child if they're progressing along oftentimes if the child does not meet up to the standards of the other children it does provide kind of a shameful or embarrassing moment for the kid challenging students and not subscribing to the school of sort of everybody gets a trophy that we sort of fall into over the last decade or so and actually raises children's self-esteem but what happens is that it oftentimes becomes counterproductive and lead in children who are non-binary or who are or have any kind of physical limitations to kind of step away from that and i think sometimes it becomes a counterproductive counter intuitive measure childhood is all about challenges that it's about winning and losing and learning to grow it's about failing and getting back up and learning how to deal with those things in
12:29 am
a safe and protected environment and i think we need to be very careful that we don't fall into this group think this politically correct group think that we will think what the governor of california was saying is that let's not do away with this all together let's take a break figure this out come back to the with the game plan and then figure out how do we go from there well wrapping in some of these new or just to the to the rainbow of the human culture i just think we have to be very careful about the challenges we do decide to withdraw from students based just on their opinions as they are in transition anyway and as their brains are not fully formed enough to perhaps make such decisions for themselves in my practice i see 456 year old kids come in with their parents who absolutely present not to the gender that they were born they are transgender they are non-binary there isn't a way to kind of classify them based on the body parts. now that's been our roundup of the day's top news for now as always thanks for tuning in i'll be back in about
12:30 am
30 minutes time. what holds and. i put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president interim. or somehow want to be. what you'd like to be for us it's like the before korea boy can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should be. the case community there are people who believe that it's ok it's up.
