- I'm a grandfather. I have two grandchildren.
- Four kids.
- I'm not willing to do that. I'm not willing to sit back and just let our government do it in my name because I will not put my name to it. [MUTED] I would rather not be doing this, but I see this as a fun way to get people's attention.
There are many, many other things that I do. Many positive things like causing damage. So I do feel it necessary, at this time, to get people's attention.
- I picked up on the right side of history. I have to do the right thing by the people that I love and that means disrupting business as usual. That means making a stance, because nothing will change unless people take back their power.
