issue seriously. tiktok responded saying it has an american ceo. although the paramedic company is based in beijing. tiktok said it has never provided u.s. data to the chinese government and it wouldn't do so if asked. joining me, connie from tiktok. what are the biggest concerns about tiktok right now? >> you mentioned one of them. the fact that it is owned by a beijing-based company. that's why secretary pompeo is also concerned. it is a chinese social media app. the concern is what information are they tracking and sharing and storing with the chinese government. >> is there anything the company on do to ease the privacy concerns? is there any evidence they've harvested data off anybody's phones? >> there's no evidence to that. they hired new ceo in may. he was the man head of streaming
4:32 pm
for disney and he helped launch disney plus which is their very successful streaming app. he has tried to assure regulators that this is a company led by an american ceo. the data is kept outside of china so it is just assurances. as we know with apps that become very popular built in other countries, remember when we were all using the app that aged you? that was owned by a russian company. perhaps we were fading a facial recognition database. the truth is you don't know. what will happen to your data and how it will be used. that is the only question about this app and many others. >> so there's been talk that tiktok might be banned in the united states. is that realist snik. >> well, it could be if the trump administration feels very strongly as part of their ongoing inactions with china.

4:35 pm
using an app that is free, you are the product. they want information that you and your personal date. a you might not be concerned with how it will be used but again, if write to tell that you the russian government is building a facial recognition system and needed the face of every person on the maneplanet you provided it to them, you might take a moment to pause. it is about unintended consequences. about not knowing what will happen. if there's sub text to the trump administration and its dealings with the chinese government, i'm sure that will be revealed in due course. it is another cautionary tale for users, free you're the product. >> it sounds like previous conversations we've had. a date has been set for the ceos of some of the biggest tech companies to testify before

4:41 pm
see will encourage people to behave more sensibly. i don't know. >> it doesn't appear that's the trends. if you're flying delta or united, alcohol will be an option again. oh, i see people perking up. both airlines along with a number of others stopped serving alcohol and snacks last month to try to prevent the spread of covid. now if you are flying delta, you can order alcohol as long as you're in first class or a trip more than 500 miles. with united, you have to be in a premium cabin or on an international flight. if spencer is up in first where he normally is, and i'm in the back the sardines like this, i can't get a drink? this is not right. >> alcohol for all, right? >> well, this is what i will do.

withering book, john bolton, his book just came out which blasted him as well for what he's done in office. this book talks about his life prior to getting in office and how he used everything, his celebrity and his money and position to get elected. >> yeah. i think it is getting a lot of attention. go ahead, larry. >> i was going to say, rarely am ito defend him. but we have to be careful about what they today? books that happen 50 years ago. >> she did piece it together. a fair point. expen spencer may not be surprised. but she had pieced together conversations based on what was told to her so some of it is put together. >> and i think it is getting extra attention because the fact president trump often refers to his wharton education. hey, i did some jean just stuff
4:45 pm
so people will look at that. >> she said she wrote the book because she could no longer sit back watching what happened over the past three years. her claim as to why she wrote the book now. all right. it appears some people want to know what space smells like. so now there's a fragrance that smells like outer space to earth. it is called eau de space. and according to videos on the kick starter page, nasa developed the fragrance for astronaut field training a decade ago. astronauts in the video say space smells like the lingering skrechbl gun popowder at a shoog range. another says it smells like a burned cookie. now we know. i'm sure you've often wondered what it smells like. >> i understand it is very cold. i'm not sure it will translate
4:46 pm
well to a perfume. i'm not sure too many people will find someone who smells like burned cookies very attractive. kristen, will you be in line when they release this? the eau de space? >> not unless it smells like cinnamon. burned cook snis honey, is that burned cookie space you're wearing? ooh la la! >> burned chocolate chip cookies. is that better? >> on some people that might be an improvement. - i'm norm. - i'm szasz.
