You deal with it every hour of every day for 80-plus days now.”

“I wasn’t even going to speak on any of this, I feel like my head is full with so many things that the last thing I need running through my mind is this bulls**t,” he went on, saying that he doesn’t care what people think about the situation, because it’s “2020 and this is life. 2020, what a sh***y, f***ing year.”
