43. But it matters, truth matters
It doesn't matter that emotion was shown. But it does matter what it was shown on. That is a pivotal difference. This will come up for other Dems.

If there is one thing you are justified in getting upset about, it's that. Truth always matters. I mean, if the last six years have taught us all anything it is that.
