I am currently holed up in the furthest recesses of my own house while a certain “self-made man” brays on about those “big-government liberals” who are ruining the country for him. Please go home with your delusional notions of how you are the only guy who actually works for a living. Pull up your socks, man. Get on your bike. Leave. I’m begging you.
