Hi everybody, so I'm Sarah Jones,
00:02
and I'm going to let other people answer on my behalf.
00:05
I do play people of a lot of different backgrounds,
00:08
and I'm going to let them weigh in.
00:10
I'm English, I know some of you might be jealous
00:13
of that right now, but I also want to say,
00:15
as a Brit, you know, at one point I thought Brexit
00:17
was going to be the sign of the stupidest thing
00:19
that happened in 2016, and I really want to
00:22
thank you Americans for coming to our rescue.
00:24
It's very kind.
00:25
Hi guys, I'm just going to snap really quick
00:27
and say I'm with W magazine right now.
00:29
For younger feminists, like me, to have someone
00:32
who like totally doesn't care, that like disrespecting
00:36
women is like maybe a problem for being a world leader,
00:40
like, it's super confusing.
00:42
Hi, I'm sorry to interrupt, but I'm worried.
00:44
You know, are we going to have a department
00:47
of the interior pussy grabbing right now.
00:49
I can imagine like, you know, the great big gold letters,
00:51
Trump Tower, across the front of the White House?
00:53
I mean, this is crazy right now.
00:55
Seriously, we don't need sirens outside to feel like it's
00:57
a state of emergency right now.
00:59
I can't, I just, I can't.
01:00
Like I'm almost inarticulate in both languages.
01:03
Thank you for the question.
01:04
Would I ever have Donald Trump for dinner?
01:06
Does he eat?
01:07
I don't think food is involved as far as I am concerned.
01:10
This is a robot that is programmed to ideologically harm
01:13
everything in its path.
01:14
Perhaps he will elect a new liaison to the KKK.
01:19
I am very excited to see how this goes.
01:21
Hi out there, everybody.
01:22
For me, people of all backgrounds should be afraid,
01:26
whatever your color.
01:27
I've lived through a lot of difficult times,
01:30
but at least in each instance,
01:32
you felt the person had enough intelligence
01:37
that you could argue.
01:39
But then sometimes, you feel like you are arguing
01:41
with a wall.
01:42
In this case, a wall who wants to build a wall.
01:45
I don't know.
01:46
But, I will tell you this.
01:48
I've lived long enough to know four years is not the end
01:51
of the world.
01:53
Frankly, I think I have candies in my purse older
01:55
than four years old.
01:57
So, we'll live through this.
01:59
In times when our humanity is being questioned,
02:02
I pray really for all of us, that we do not let our humanity
02:07
be reduced by a lack of humanity of others.
02:11
For me, that is the greatest message of Islam.
02:14
Salaam Alaykum.
02:16
We have mandatory voting in Australia,
02:18
and if you don't vote, you get fined.
02:20
So, there's a part of me that always was, you know,
02:23
sort of jealous of you yanks, but now,
02:25
I'm starting to think maybe we should do something
02:26
about that.
02:27
But good on ya, that you're all still hanging in there,
02:29
and maybe this is a really important time to change things
02:32
up a bit.
02:33
I brought my own microphone.
02:35
That's how I roll.
02:36
You know what I'm saying?
02:37
I need people in leadership that respect us as human beings.
02:40
I don't really know exactly what's coming,
02:42
but I know there's a lot more people coming together
02:44
than there was before.
02:45
Maybe that's a blessing.
02:46
If you're all interested in a deeper conversation,
02:49
look for me, Rashid.
02:51
Let Sarah Jones know.
02:54
We're all going to be okay.
