How do you like that for a cliche?
The President Elect of the Known Universe smokes cigarettes. And people think he should stop right this minute. ARE THEY OUT OF THEIR FUCKING MINDS????? Have they ever had to live with a nicotine addict? Even assuming that he is usually a nice, mild-mannered man, do we really want to have him making major decisions with withdrawal symptoms running amok?
Dudes, it's just a cigarette. Yes, that's what I said: JUST A CIGARETTE.
Perhaps the young and impressionable people of the Known Universe would be better educated to know that the President Elect wishes he had never started smoking, than that he could just stop. No big deal.
Now, don't y'all agree with me cuz you love me. What do you think?
