Much appreciation, ie to say this, much appreciation how you've always spoken out on behalf of veterans. Wh led to youelievet you were going to talk aboutt the person that was going to iew you? Well, it was proposed to as a legitimate I to speak about voters issues and our military and current eve to a new audience. And is past O to me by speaker's bureau whichld assume had done some vetting, buou know, this quote/unquoteomedian is Y Ver good at lyt duping people because look the long Lebron James list now si come out and described my perience, all these other guys, all theseen coming out nowng, yeah, me WHAs the moment in the interv W said, oh, it a minute, this isn't right here and you got and you walked out. What led U to that moment? Yeah, he STA showing me these graphs and statistics that like typos in them and just dn quite look right and part of this opaganda, this data he was showing me something doh Sha and then he brought uplsealinton and said that she was a recipie of a governmended sexhange and, you know, it jt got worse and worse and W a the minutes went on in this bizarre you know, it mocked middle class Americans. It moc our values. It mocked the disabled and it just got worse and worse and, you know, it was occurringoe whatever this show is,ha this interview reallssll about humiliat and devaluing MI Americans whom represent, so, yeah, I S enou was enough and I took Ike and walked out and since then nobodyetsy calls. Iven us fake names as to producers anybody invo in the show nob has taken me up on my offer F them to donate the proceed from this show to veterans organizations thatly sup and respe our vets I know you've asked for them to do it and no response. Ed showti to show us a clip because T are claims that he saying that he did not porhimself as a see it and they refused to gives one. So how do you respond to the saying that he was noted acting as an injur veteran. Well, this actor, this comedian whomever he is he's a en liar so nobody can ev word he is saying now as to his rebuttalheweet or letter that he had yesterday, his ex-cla nat a to who he ry is, you know, I mean the very first in that gave it away explaining himself 5 is a parody he wasn't able to join the MILI because he had bone spurs in his testes. Read a line like THA and, you know, man, this guy doesn't quit. He just- you know, he thinks this kind O stuff is funny and mocking T disabled and mocking andelittling our vets with his portrayal my book is not nny. In the many books it's not nny. It definitely crossed the L and do share your outrage. Don't get mewron there have been people saying aren't ylaying into what they wantau many people didn't even realize this show waappening aow this is bringing more ation to it are you concerned about that?

This comedia too, he mocks gays, H mocks Jews he does these otherpisodes where the into I to humiliate. It's to parod something that is important an individual or an enty or group of people and, again, you know, if people do decide to tune they'll hear about it an if they tune in, the ill-goen gains B cbsnd showtime, those, I Y, need to be ded to people who deserve the gains.
