“The President of Brazil is refusing to put out the fires in the Amazon unless the President of France apologizes for calling him a liar. Ladies and gentlemen, I am not sure about you, but I am ready for women to run the world. This is the kind of B.S. only men get into!”

“Elizabeth Warren is having a huge surge. Her rallies are apparently getting huge. I just saw on the news today, at her political rallies, Senator Elizabeth Warren enters to the song ‘9 to 5‘. That’s true! Meanwhile, at his political rallies, Bernie Sanders enters to the song ‘I’m 95.’”
