London

H: Just got off the London eye. The check underneath the bench in the pods like security checks underneath a car for bombs? Crazy that they live this way.

J: I dont think its that serious man. Cant be too safe, right? I feel like they do that stuff in America too. Like a parade with garbage trucks blocking streets.

H: I wouldn’t compare it tho. A carousel vs large groups of people. The potential for harm is incomparable. Also went to the winter wonderland in Hyde Park where they did security checks through bags and wanded people. That make sense. Kinda.

J: I feel like its a healthy paranoia. It doesn’t hurt to check but I also don’t imagine that happening in the US.

H: I disagree. Seems like they’ve decided to treat a symptom than the root cause with these measures. Now they live in fear.

J: 2m1s

Mean Girls

B: What do you think? : https://twitter.com/ianbremmer/status/1202047174793682944?s=20

G: I can’t say that I think anything about it. As a citizen it’s embarrassing that our president is mocked. But we mock him and he deserves to be mocked so 🤷🏾‍♀️. They’re making fun… over a couple drinks… why not.

B: They sound like girls to me. Like they envy the attention Trump gets and have to share their dislike of it with their peers. Seems like a bad look for them.

G: I didn’t listen to the volume, just read the captions. But sure, I’m sure trump views it the same way you do

B: It think of it like this: we are a star athlete trump is our agent. He should be an asshole to the rest of the world because he is negotiating for us. He’d be a bad agent if he was polite, kind, and nice. He should be arrogant, loud, demanding, and unreasonable in order to secure us great deals.

G: Sounds like you’d have no problem with hitler

B: This is the fastest I’ve seen Godwin’s law exemplified.

G: You’re welcome. Cept I wasn’t comparing trump to hitler, what I said was based on your description of a preferred leader, you would have no problem with hitler. Subtle difference.
