Linda and Janet are former colleagues in the US political system but
Janet The world is laughing at us right now. And they’re right.
Linda Our allies are behind us.
Janet You think Germany is going to put up with this? Canada’s having a good laugh.
Linda What about London? They love pigeons. You should have seen the swarm of people and other pigeons he attracted.
Janet It was Trafalgar Square! That’s what they do! The President shouldn’t be fed breadcrumbs from tourists. The President has to be seen as a real leader.
Linda He also has to be well liked.
Janet Well, he is a delicacy in some countries.
Linda That’s disgusting.
Linda moves past Janet to retrieve her laptop. She heads towards the door, when…
Janet He has to pardon a turkey!
Linda Excuse me?!
Janet There are things Presidents do. He has to pardon a turkey at Thanksgiving.
