    You really have to find the right forum (if you’re not a bot…) – another Trump comment about an article that has nothing to do with him. You seem a wee bit lost.

  • You don’t have to listen to anything. The people who want to can watch it, the people who aren’t interested can watch something else, or nothing at all. That’s the beauty of the streaming entertainment age.
