#1 “I’ll be honest. I had to Google that,” he said. “I guess it’s just a generational thing. I didn’t get the reference. It’s kind of funny, I guess. But he’s also the president of the United States and I’m surprised he’s not spending more time trying to salvage this China deal.” (Trade talks between the U.S. and China in Washington ended Friday without an agreement, raising the prospect of an extended tariff war.)

Its funny, because yeah.

At that age, he never heard of MAD magazine or the MAD brand? Liar.

#7 Speaking as your Campaign Advisor, if you need to tell people how to pronounce your name, you've got problems before the game even started.

#8 When I started out as a reporter, one of the bottom rung tasks was to call all the area hospitals for nightly admit / discharge lists. People in Fayette County, Pee Aye (Fayette Nam to the locals) talked funny. One night I was taking down the list over the phone and the girl said Thomas blubblubblub. I asked here to repeat herself and got the same thing. I said, "you are going to have to spell that one for me." She said, S-M-I-T-H, blubblubblub." I said, "Uh, OK..."
