“And what must we do with this information?”
“It’s you casually admitting that you can just invite the whole President of South Ah to your spot like he’s your mate.”
“Yes and we would be right to say so because you’re one of the first people to publicly endorse the prez early into his term. We’re not the idiots you were hoping we’d be.”
