So You Served In The Military From Was It
2006 to 16 as a Navy UK served in Afghanistan You but your first deployment was in Fallujah right Yeah. My first two deployments are in Iraq and third one was in Afghanistan where I had to leave early from that deployment, but because I got blown up by a bomb. Oh just that yeah man that that chased you out of your deployment just getting blown up by a bomb excuses. This guy amazing my friends made fun of me which you know Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live was you know a total jerk about about that and you were the bigger man and then you appeared with him on UK when you could have made we were just talking about this as we were trying to get your the phone to work you could have made a really. big deal out of that and probably cost the guys job instead you went on Saturday Night Live with him and just didn’t take yourself too seriously and and I thought it was it was it was really a class act and recently now he said he helps he he regrets helping you get into office, which he had nothing to do with and you’re being the bigger man again to your credit that’s it’s amazing.
I Dont Know How You Do It
because I I wouldn’t I probably wouldn’t be playing it the same way you were Davidson is in quarantine right now just thinking about me constantly. I think I think I think we need something controversial. The only it’s how he kind of gets famous but what he said was. He he regrets making me famous and yeah yeah he definitely didn’t get me elected there’s no. way this the way it all set played out.

I Was I Was Already Elected,
but the I talk about that story In a chapter called the right sense of shame and the reason I talked about it. There was because the way Saturday Night Live played out was an exam of using the right amount of shame and forgiveness, Whereas you could totally imagine that entire scenario playing out differently which is how you described it unleash the outraged mob get this guy fired demand that UK you know bow down to the mob and write and repent and and all that and in that could have happened easily they wouldn’t have invited me on the show. America would have moved past this one and moved into their corners and and nobody would have felt good about it that’s usually what happens, but because we were able to effectively give each other some grace. You know I I I could assume pretty objectively that Pete Davidson meant to have some pretty serious digs against Republicans.
It Was Clearly A Biased Skit Mm
but it’s not necessarily the case that he meant to take a real deep dig at a wounded veteran. It just there’s a chance that he kind of misspoke or you know or kind of ad lib to that part and you know we’ll never really know but that that was that was certainly a possibility and so that something I talk about in my book is you don’t have to assume the worst intentions and that is a feature of our politics these days. Is the worst intentions about what somebody is saying Now. I think Democrats do that a hell of a lot more than Republicans not saying we don’t do it but they but it happens all the time right right um you know you want you want to give tax cuts to people.
Oh Its Just Because Youre Rich
overlords or controlling you right It’s like okay first of all that’s not even how campaign finance works but but also it’s just that that’s fundamentally not true. There’s a much deeper philosophy behind that but the assumption of bad intentions is just as prevalent. It’s prevalent right now as we deal with the corona virus and it’s getting worse day by day as the media and Democrats really double down this notion that the Trump some house has this intention to line kill people mm-hmm it’s gotten out of control it. It really is I mean no kind of language They’re using you know it’s one it’s it’s true it’s one thing to say Hey you had information at this time that you didn’t act on right that would be one thing right yeah.
It Would Be An Objective Criticism.
They have not leveled that criticism and it’s very frustrating because because it doesn’t exist you know because they can’t they can’t wrap their heads around the fact that actually Trump acted extremely early prevented a restricted travel from China and a huge way and now they’re saying Oh well It wasn’t really a restriction.
