47. Why did you even bother to listen since it's obvious it wouldn't
have mattered to you what he said?

Oh, wait, I get it now. You were expecting him to confirm that he's cutting social security and throwing poor people under the bus. Then you would have crowed, "told ya so." Gotten your jollies.

But because he said something good, you win anyway because it doesn't matter what he says. Right? Right.
