"You have good genes, you know that, right? You have good genes. A lot of it is about the genes, isn't it, don't you believe? The racehorse theory. You think we're so different? You have good genes in Minnesota." -- Trump https://t.co/OiF63qZaKx

The irony of spending years messing around with VPNs in China, only to download them again in the United States in order to (maybe?) access Chinese apps.

I was today years old when I learned that there is a thing called “natural cheese”. Which suggests that there is cheese @KraftHeinzCo doesn’t even pretend is natural. Via the @WSJ https://t.co/myta9TpPVE

A group of 163 CEOs and leaders write a letter telling NY mayor @BilldeBlasio how to run the city - and send it just as soon as they’ve got back from the Hamptons. Via @nytimes https://t.co/J6pVZhKe0f

A month ago, NYC and London had the same rates of new Covid infections. Now London has more than double the rate of NYC. We don’t dine/drink/meet inside, ever. Our offices are closed. These are the facts. Think about why Boris wants what he wants from you

I’ve lost count of the number of times folks in Britain have told me “of course I wear a mask except when I’m in the pub obv”. Or “I’m going to the cinema tonight but it’s ok because they have hand sanitizer”. https://t.co/mg7hohJUcM

"White people: If you see something, say something….. or don’t pretend to be an ally. I don’t need post-facto support. I just need to be paid fairly for the work I do and given a chance to perform in my zone of excellence." - @Farai https://t.co/vuXp0SV14D

LVMH's $16 billion acquisition of Tiffany could become a case study in why the grand old tradition of shareholder primacy is a problem. https://t.co/PErUESWtXk

Phrases that 2020 has shown us should no longer be used in casual conversation: "good cop / bad cop."

'I think it's time we stop this general bout of self-recrimination and wetness' @BorisJohnson gives his view on the row over over the playing of Rule Britannia! and Land of Hope and Glory in the Last Night of the Proms https://t.co/bzG12p0QUV https://t.co/eXhEpH3V0L

Boris thinks it's time we stopped our "cringing embarrassment" about Britain's intimate involvement in slavery and colonisation. I would argue it's time we showed a bit more cringing embarrassment about the misery our history caused. Whether we sing Rule Britannia! or not. https://t.co/Op3D08Xp7W

From @Breakingviews: The S&P 500 Index hit a record, while Apple became the first $2 trillion company, yet unemployment is high, growth has cratered and people worldwide are sick and suffering. @johnsfoley has more https://t.co/CgjAnaMTQR

School nurses do a lot more than hand out Band-Aids and ice packs. Now these overburdened health care specialists are on the front lines of battling the coronavirus as classrooms reopen. "I just don't know if I can do it alone," a nurse told me. https://t.co/aeoU3eHqB7
