Any government system

that relies on violence

to answer its problems must be rebooted.

She's doing good, Leo.

It is time to call upon

the better angels of our nature.

He is going to keep lying.

Jesus Christ. There she goes again.

- Secure the audience.

- I'm on it.

I'd like to talk to you guys.

Put a leash on her, Chief.

She's no good to anyone dead.

You got it, Leo.

- Okay. We're on the move.

- Copy, boss.

Thank you very much.

Thank you so much. Thank you.

Go sit down. I'm happy to stay here

for the rest of the night.

Stay close to her. Keep it tight.

Go out. Purge and purify. Purge and purify!

Hi. Thank you again.

As she's done many times before,

Senator Roan broke security protocol,

walking off the stage,

stepping into the audience.

Tell you this much,

she got 'em little titties,

but she got some big-ass balls.

She ain't got a snowball's chance

in a steam bath of winning this thing,

but she be taking on them ol' white-haired

George Washington wannabe mofos

all by herself.

And to that, I say bully for her.

Oh, horseshit. She's full of it too.

Nothing'll ever change.

Hey, Laney. Laney, Laney?

I think we've offended

Marcos with our anti-Senator talk.

The Senator's going to win.

She's gonna make real changes too.

You'll see.

All she needs is Florida.

She gets the 29 electoral votes from

Florida, that puts her over 270.

- She can do it.

- Smartass.

All that useless shit

and can't butter a damn bagel correctly.

I could butter your bagel, boss.

- Oh, you'd butter my bagel?

- Mmm...

Well, you got jokes over there.

Yeah, you just be careful, kid, with all

that hope, 'cause it can be a bad thing.

Hope can lead to a lot of letdown.

Tell him, Irish I.

Excuse me, what?

I'm not paying attention.

I'm thinking about waffles and pussy.
