I really hope this thread needs zero posts but I know better than to have hope for anything

"If a bunch of people who are reported as a country who can blow up on a bus and have had a history of terror attacks since its inception, I'm sure America will survive. Regardless, I have some amazing shows coming up and I hope you are excited. My Tour starts the 12th in Tel Aviv Israel and Ironically, I will play in Washington DC the next day. We don't need to talk politics, but lets talk about things we can agree on.

Touring is Awesome"

(that said I am pleasantly surprised by how, for the most part today, the PRs and the brands of the world decided for once to develop, if not a moral impulse, then at least some common fucking sense and not make this about them)

Have you ever taken out Vince McMahon live on WWE? Nah, didn't think so. Have you ever set up your own university? Oop, no, you haven't. And I bet if someone gave you a small loan of a million dollars you wouldn't even know what to do with it. Sounds like Donald just clotheslined your libertarian, democratic opinions right out of the window.

But seriously, before you go home and start building your own wall around your property to keep out all the post-apocalyptic raiders you'll be fighting off after the nuclear war, maybe go out, take one last gulp of fresh air and hit up some the hotspots in London we've been stockpiling for just such an eventuality. Believe us – these are the memories you'll cling to after all else has crumbled in the wake of WWIII…have fun!

Good afternoon - Tuffers here..

Well - welcome to the brave new world with Mr Trump! I was half thinking if a reality TV star can win the USA presidency maybe I should run for Prime Minister! First rule - mornings to begin at 10am!

What with Brexit and the US Elections I think we've all had enough of politics and all the doom and gloom for now so thoughts turn to having some good times and relaxation at some of Paragon's upcoming events...

"Hello Katherine,

Hope you feeling well today, enjoying the last 10 weeks of happiness.

Wanted to get in touch in regards to Mr. --"

no. no. stop doing this. I understand we all have to go back to our jobs, and your job is to write press releases like my job is to move commas around on a screen, but glib comments about the election are extra."
