I deliver my Truth hot and hard.
I'm not here to affect you politically or socially. I'm here to make you laugh. I use the news as the palette for my jokes.

In order to be a top-tier candidate, I need 7.5 million dollars, and I currently have 0.0 million dollars.
We have this idea in our minds that there's this separation of church and state in America, which I think is a good thing.
No, my mom kind of led me toward acting. She wanted to be an actress when she was younger. That made me interested in it when I was a kid, because she and I are very close.
