Yes, yes, yes! We know. He’s emotional about a matter very personal to him. On that side of things, we respect his feelings. But as a public figure in a public place? Hate to say it but no matter how genuine his emotions, Newt’s not particularly empathetic (or frankly very nice), so we have to say: “suck it up, fat boy!”
There are sooooo many snide comments this could provoke.
