  2. I wouldn’t be so proud. The only difference is that he has been caught for his crimes, he looks remorseful but you crabs’ claws are bigger than your eyes so I understand your attacks. I will continue to pray for your Kounty, this man represents all of you, and you have all failed. Do better together. Go visit him and tell your jokes to his face.
