    >> your wallet?

    >>> every week before the show we check out facebook, twitter, now you decide where we're reporting. here the top trenders voted on by you.

    >> yeah, baby.

    >> our number three trender. the baby wait is over.

    >> the baby weighed about eight pounds. american are like, how much is that in dollars? the baby known as prince becomes third in line to the british throne .

    >> he is george alexander louis.

    >> george, the name of six previous kings.

    >> third in line to the throne. to which prince charles said yeah, but it's a slow-moving line.

    >> number work the disgrace.

    >> for everyone who is a valedictorian, there is another 99 out there that weigh 130 pounds but have calves the size of cantaloupes.

    >> i don't disagree that there are dreamers that are valedictorians but also it would legalize those who are smuggling drugs into the united states .

    >> and triples on his claim in mexico, they are recruiting kids to be smugglers.

    >> republicans smacking down.

    >> there is no place in this debate for hateful or ignorant comments from elected officials.

    >> in this week's top trender. weiner 's selfy destruction.

    >> i have that that other photos would likely come out.

    >> weiner 's online sex began a full year before.

    >> up to his old tricks under a new name.

    >> there were messages that he sent to a woman on facebook using the name carlos danger.

    >> anthony weiner 'sallweiner'sallerter ego .

    >> it is time for him to step aside .

    >> weiner has brought a side show to this race.

    >> christine quinn now leads by nine percentage points.

    >> i do not want anthony weiner as my mayor. i want carlos danger.

    >> joining me now, news anchor. have you ever seen a circus like this.

    >> two aspects. aside from the puns, the first is, most sex scandals we kind of understand them. there is a woman. you have contact with a woman. you meet the woman. maybe you're in the same room or bedroom. in this particular case you have something called virtual adultery. as far as i know, he has never met any of these people. let me get this straight. all of this thrown away and he never met anyone. so his virtual adultery or high-tech flashing. the first problem is, i don't get it. i don't understand the mechanism of his particular expression of emotion.

    >> it is the lies.

    >> look at elliot spitzer .

    >> he stepped down.

    >> we understand it. i was going to say my first bone of contention which may not be the best choice of words. the thing that i'm saying is that that is the first part we don't understand. the second part is his wife. hum hume dlafl she said my husband is a better man for this. i beg to differ . we can't understand the whole thing. and then the lies that follow. especially from her.

    >> there's plenty of comic material here but there's a real element of sadness as well.

    >> that a athlettheathletic -- pathetic.

    >> if he can props me that he won't go after my 32 ounce sugar, that he won't have those stupid city bike lanes , he won't worry about styrofoam and sodium and baby formula as mayor bloomberg did, i might overlook that. who knows? could he be in essence a mayoral salve ant? could he be great at political stuff but have this weird quirk?

    >> he's gone from 25 to 15% in the polls in the city. but is there a chance he could come back? do you think, you've known new york as good as anybody. could this city actually elect this guy as mayor? could it happen in.

    >> this is america and this is new york. this is the land of second and third and fourth chances. i think so. as log as he stops. rememberering left congress. you would think someone would say i'm going to lay low . i'll bet you elliot spitzer after his problems, did not make any phone call or engage in behavior. this is a strange, what? paraphilia in.

    >> he has no credentials. he didn't do much in congress in his six terms. but he was an or or the for the left. this is his biggest ally right now is that there are people saying we need his voice. is that going to be able to carry him?

    >> this would be his city. you have to ask, and i don't want to bring this up. what parents tell kids, you know with the puns, this is really, it is kind of sad. at first i found it amusing then you found it really amusing but now we're having diminishing returns. there is something obviously still there. but it is really sad. and again, i submit, ed, i don't even know what he did.

    >> well, he lied. that's a big thing. trust is an issue here.

    >> yes.

    >> then you look at his character. is this behavior that you want a city official to have who is going to have his time possibly occupied doing other things when there are some pretty serious problems?

    >> first, as far as lies go. people who lie, people who say i'm going to do this and then they change their mind. lying i'm sorry, it is a matter of degree and interpretation. the thing about this is, i'm always worried about blackmail. that really compromises the efficacy of a person.

    >> if he were to get in. okay.

    >> what is in this guy's future if he doesn't win?

    >> mockery, humiliation. what's in it for her? remember, she was aligned with hillary. she is doomed. she has her own problems now with the investigations.

    >> good to have you with
