    Is clapping when a plane lands a British thing? I'm from the US and used to fly twice a year. Never once did the passengers applaud the plane landing.

    Both of my kids are 6 years apart in age.. they had the exact same due date... two different dads. Their birthdays are 5 days apart (I had to be induced with the 2nd kid so I had to wait until I was 2 weeks overdue.. and my 1st child was born ON her dad's birthday!). Needless to say, HALLOWEEN is a very exciting holiday!!! :D :X

    3:35 The driver of Trump's car was an undocumented Mexican worker because no US citizen wanted to do it. And for that reason that driver is a true American hero. Trump: "Just keep it steady, don't pull down the windows if people get close." Driver: "No habla ingles, senor." Trump: "I knew you'd get me. I sensed it the moment I got into the car." Driver: "Si, senor." Trump: "No need to thank me."

    And to think the United States isnโ€™t even a democracy, the people donโ€™t determine their leader a electorate chooses them. They canโ€™t even freely choose their representation cuz of gerrymandering and voter repression. Itโ€™s unbelievably disgusting that they call themselves the protectors of democracy when they canโ€™t even let their own people freely vote.

      They said they gave us a Republic and it was up to us to keep it, sadly we elected corrupt people and continued to allow them back into office. The current administration has shown me how many people I know who are actually racist and generally shite at heart, I'd rather have an effective government though. Some of us have woken up to the lies, but still not enough to force the changes needed to actually restore anything great out of this mare's nest

      During the interview with Mo Gilligan, Slim mentions he feels like a superhero during the weekend. Thinking of the Black standups that I like (Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Bernie Mac, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Kevin Hart, Jerrod Carmichael, Lavell Crawford, Deon Cole, and many others), Slim's material that he did on this show comes nowhere close. It's cheap to call someone you do not know racist and imply they don't have a sense of humor. Russell has sometimes featured comics in his shows (Good News) that I have not liked, but because those comics were not Black, their race could not be used as an "explanation" for their lack of mainstream appeal. It could be that Slim is a great comedian but he just chose material for this show that is tame and not very interesting, but that's a choice that he made.

    11:10 I am sorry Russell, you are being quite sexist here. So because some big countries have really bad leaders, who happen to be men, women are just "better" now? That's prejudice if I ever heard it. And then you drop a bunch of tired stereotypes about men being violent, suicida, idiots. But if the other side does it, they are the bad guys.

    Slim makes a good point tbh. Bus drivers are unappreciated in most if not all countries that have buses... Even if it's just a smile and quick nod while entering, and/or a small wave/polite hand gesture while exiting as a thank you (with a short "cheers" or "thanks" if you want too) is better than nothing. Bus drivers are amazing and I believe they should have the recognition/appreciation they deserve; especially since some people that get on the bus are hell to deal with (probably on a daily basis)

FYI Mette the primeminister from Denmark, is not doing a great work, and she has devided the population even more then Trump v Biden has done for USA.
