My Thoughts: A little bit of fight talk. Lots of car talk. North Korea. Dinosaurs. Flat earth. Lots of fighting about conspiracies. I don’t understand why they announce they’ll talk about fights and then it just devolves into conspiracy theories. The only upside is that Brendan stays relatively quiet during the argument.
