That’s not who I’m and that’s not what we do.”
Settin’ the document straight. The interview by no means occurred. By no means mentioned these phrases. 100% false. If I ever had a problem with somebody, a gaggle, group or a era — I’d search them out, create dialogue and do my greatest to know them. Criticizing ain’t my fashion. I don’t solid stones and all of us get to be who we’re. #millies #plurals #boomers #TequilaGeneration
