Let me just tell you, this past weekend when I was with the French friends, we always talked about like politics and it’s like a topic of interest. [Jo]: Always! [Jo]: French people that’s like their favorite thing to talk about! [Jo]: Debates! [Damon]: They just love debating about any- and everything. [Jo]: They like to debate about debates. [Damon]: They were like, “But are people actually serious about Donald Trump, “like they would actually vote for him?” And they wanted to know my opinion as an American, I’m like, “Yeah people like him because he ‘says things that like other–‘” [Jo]: “Everyone wants to say.” [Damon]: He says everything that I would not ever want to say! [Jo]: Everything I’d steer so far away from, yeah! [Damon]: But have you seen this video about the ‘Trump Cheerleaders’? [Jo]: No, but I have like 5 minutes on the clock, becasue I’m cooking eggs, so like… [Damon]: It is the most… Oh, you will only need about 10 seconds for this… Okay. [Jo]: I don’t think this is gonna end well… [Damon]: This is real. [Cheerleader, singing]: Powerless; Are you serious? Apologies for freedom; I can’t handle this! [Jo]: If I could puke on command, I would. [Cheerleaders, singing]: …Or get crushed every time. [Jo]: You guys! [Damon]: “Or get crushed every time…” [Jo]: These poor children. [Damon]: Yeah, they just think it’s like a little performance. [Jo]: Oh my god, I feel so bad… [Cheerleaders, singing]: American pride; [chanting] USA! It’s attitude, it’s who we are; Stand up tall! [Damon grunts] [Jo sneezes]: I’m allergic to bullshit. Keyword: Brainwash. [Damon laughs] [Damon]: Have you ever gone through his Twitter? [Jo]: Yes, it’s the worst thing ever. [Damon laughs] [Jo]: I like Azealia Banks’ tweets about him. [Damon]: We’re gonna read Donald Trump’s tweets. [Damon, laughing]: “I will make our military so big, so powerful, and so strong, no one will mess with us.” [Jo]: Like ‘Hunger Games…’ Equals Donald Trump. [Damon]: All that money spent on war– [Jo]: On guns! Like violent things that will blow human beings to smithereens. [Damon]: That could– [laughs] That could be going to education. Why do we not want everyone to be smart? [Jo]: It’s like they want us to be “DUUUMB.” So that they could have big guns, it’s like the worst… [both laughing] [Damon]: It’s so stupid… [Jo]: The worst mentality to have. [Damon]: Do you know who Ann Coulter is? [Jo]: Uh-huh… The worst person– [Damon]: The worst, the next worst person– [laughs] “We will win and establish strong borders, we will build a wall and [laughs] Mexico will pay.” “We will be great again.” It’s so xenophobic that he thinks that people who are not American are genuinely bad people by default. [Jo]: You know what Donald Trump needs to do? Take a plane ticket and go to the [Location] with no money… [Damon]: No, you know what Donald Trump need to do? He needs to ‘Shut up and go!’ By the way, everything on Donald Trump’s Twitter is ‘failing’ or it’s ‘sad,’ so let me just read a few of these. [Damon laughs] [Both]: “Sad!” [Both laughing] [Jo]: This is like a poem, this is like slam poetry. He needs to visit a thesaurus. [Both laughing] Or some’in different [Jo]: For some synonyms of ‘sad’ and ‘failing.’ [Damon]: So the only reason I’m bringing it up is because–[ding] [Jo]: It’s probably Donald Trump messaging me… [Damon laughs]: Like, “That video will be taken down, it’s a failing, sad Youtube channel!” [Both laughing] [Damon]: So the only reason I’m bringing this up is because yes, it was like a topic of interest amongst my French friends, who were like, “Wait people actually– [Jo]: “Like him?” It’s like… I’m wondering the same thing. [Damon laughs] [Damon]: No but people do! [Jo]: I know they do, I was in Texas in the airport and people were, “He’s brilliant, he’s a genius!” And then I turn around and it’s Donald Trump on TV and I’m like I gotta get out of here! [Damon]: In addition to politics, there was also this little… French – American cultural difference. Look at this. [Jo]: Ooh. [Damon]: I know, it’s just… It’s… [Jo]: What could that be? [Damon]: So here’s a funny little thing that happened last night: I come back to the apartment, that I’m staying with my French friends. My friend’s door is closed, so I’m like, “Okay, I’m not going to go in there, I’ll chill in the living room.” I’m chilling in the living room, and then he comes out and he’s like, “Damon… Why are you chilling in the living room, I’m in my room…” I’m like, “I’m not gonna walk in your room!” Then I’m like, “Okay that must be some French – American cultural difference.” And same thing happened this morning, when I’m leaving the apartment and I’m supposed to say bye to his roommate, who’s also French. Her door was cracked open a little bit, and there was a little bit of light and I’m like, “Well, I’m not just gonna walk in…” If you’re French, do you find it weird that I didn’t want to walk in your room when your door was closed? If you’re American, did you find it normal that I didn’t want to walk into somebody’s room? Let me know, I’m curious! Okay so, the door was like this–yes there’s a little bit–the door was not closed, But its… pretty much closed? [Jo]: It’s like if I wanted you to come in, the door would be open. [Damon]: Like this! Maybe that’s an American thing, I don’t know. [Jo]: Well, it totally is, because I just remember growing up and my mom would like bust through, and my sister, everybody would just walk right through: they don’t care. [Damon]: I remember in Germany, that the doors in the universities, all the teachers like closed their door. And so, they don’t keep it open like the United States– [Jo]: Right, which is weird. We feel like we’re intruding in somebody’s space if we open a closed door. [Damon]: Yes! [Damon]: I thought it was really interesting, again, that’s what’s interesting when you travel and you meet people from all over the world. And that’s also what’s interesting about politics, because I have this feeling that these pople don’t travel, and see these countries the way that we do. Guys, I took this class, ‘Peace and Justice Studies,’ which let me tell you about… That’s the class I got accused of plagiarism, by the way… [Damon laughing] [Jo]: Always in legal battles… [Damon]: The number 1 thing I took away from that is that how Americans– We tend to be more like, “us versus them,” And that means like, “America we’re the best,” and that would mean that everyone else is not as good. Or like, in America we’re all about class rank, like did you have a class rank in high school? [Jo]: Yeah, it’s like, “Why am I trying to be #1,” I can’t be #25? And be happy with it? [Damon]: Exactly, or like– [Jo]: I feel bad because my GPA is not as high as the next person’s. [Damon]: And that’s bad because it’s like some people are smarter than others, and other people have different talents. [Jo]: My GPA has never dictated my success in this lifetime, okay… [Damon]: So it’s that, and it’s like we have the whole prom king and queen, it’s like there’s constant competition to be #1. [Jo]: It’s horrible. That’s just like so bad. [Damon]: High school sports, Jo, like… [Jo]: I didn’t like the fact that you were measured, like I don’t do well with rankings because I’m not somebody that can be quantified in a number, do you understand? [Damon]: It’s so “us versus them,” [Jo gags] [Damon]: If we’re not #1… [Both angry, annoyed, laughing] [Jo]: Makes me sick to my stomach! Thanks, namaste. [Damon]: I know I need to go do yoga. [Jo]: They probably have like 3 classes today. [Jo]: Okay, we have a few things to say. Actually I have a few things to say, because Damon’s like chilling on the couch looking at a magazine, he’s so bougie! Have anything to say? [Damon]: Yeah: substitute hard “n” sounds for soft “n” sounds for “Ding dong,” to get that softer ring you’ll hear in Italy. [Damon attempts this] In Japan, you’ll hear, “Pin pon.” [Jo]: Crucial information for the day! [Damon, far away]: Don’t you think it’s interesting that doorbells sound different ways in different countries? [Jo attempts a doorbell sound] [Damon attempts one as well] [Jo]: Comment below how they sound in Portuguese, “Ding dong?” [Jo]: So what’s it gonna be, yoga or workout? [Damon]: I’m going to the gym later, like 8PM. [Jo]: Yoga’s at 7:30PM. [Damon]: I’m not going to do that. [Jo]: You’re gonna miss out on your ‘bolster’ action. [whispers, imitating a teacher] Everyone grab a bolster. [Damon]: Maybe I’ll go… [Jo]: I think you’ll love it! I was hesitant too, but that’s okay, it’s your first time. [Damon]: Maybe I’ll do it–I’ve done yoga a thousand times! [Jo, mockingly]: Don’t be scared, it’s your first time! [Damon]: No, I love a good tree pose. I do also like pigeon. [Jo]: See I can’t do that because my chub gets in the way and I can’t breathe. Oh that one feels good! [Damon]: But then you can take the next level by going like this, and then you take it to the next level by– [Jo]: Standing up? [gasps] Okay… [Damon]: Like this! [Jo]: Look at the hands are locked and everything! [Damon]: No but I’m only going because Donald Trump got me fired up this morning… Sorry you guys had to see that. [Jo]: We need to decompress after the Trump done Trump’d us down.
