Where is our compassionate leader who’s going to step up to our country who’s down on its knees, and extend a hand and say, ‘You stand up, stand up with me because I got you. I hear you, I’m listening to you. And you have my word that I’m going to do everything in my power, until my dying day, my last breath, to do everything I can to create the change that is needed, to normalize equality because Black Lives Matter.’

Once you really get into a song, other than just listening to it, it forces you to go ‘oh, they did this. I never would have thought of doing that,’ when you deconstruct it. It’s something you really can’t do sometimes when you’re just listening to a song. You have to really get into it.

‘Deal or No Deal’ works nicely with my ADD/ADHD symptoms. I show up, meet the contestants, and move around the set. I’m not stuck behind a pedestal reading trivia questions. I’ve always had problems sitting still and listening for long periods of time. The show spares me these challenges. I can live in the moment. It’s like a standup act.
