17. And to answer your interrogatory statement, mate, why am I at this current location? I came here because two underqualified and overpaid politicians requested that I do so; they asked me for a favor. I said, the genuine solid, follow my thoughts on what I think they should do and cashier your procreating ass because President Trump is a blowout who comes up below accepted norms.
