[Sighs] You know, it, um It all started when I was I was handling a school that was visiting the White House.
And he would look to me, and I would say the name of the person he was taking the photo with.
[Voice breaking] And then he would say "I can't hear you," so I would speak up.
[Chuckles] And then he said "Don't talk so loud.

What?! Yeah.
I know.
[Chuckles] Kind of a losing battle.
No, mnh-mnh-mnh.
Not necessarily.
How do you figure? Well, I liked the ones that I messed around with because They would always go back to their lives or wives.
And it was just freaky-ass sex.
It was never any commitment.
Oh, don't look at me like that.
Is that judgment? - No.
- That sure is.
That was not judgment, Victor.
Trust me.
I have no room to judge.
That was more the look of "I'm glad you're not doing that anymore, because that sounds dangerous.
