I started watching the video here, and it is truly nauseating.
First of all, this guy said that some bigwig at Nascar came to his trailer with tears flowing down his face and choking up on every word, to tell him he was the victim of a hate crime.
I don't buy it.
He's cocky, he's an asshole, and he's upset that someone is questioning HIS character?
I think he's got it exactly backwards.
He gets on Don Lemon's show and berates the world, telling the country that he didn't give a shit, that he knows what was in his garage stall
, and that it was a noose.
I heard his commentary on a radio show yesterday, but to watch this clown tell everyone that "it was hanging in MY garage stall over MY car?
First of all it wasn't over his car, it was next to the garage door, and similar ones are in other garage bays from other videos I've seen.
Then he wants to blame somebody else for "their mistake
He said flat out that the FBI told him "it was a noose", which the FBI refuted immediately and said they indicated to him that it was a garage door pull rope.
So far I'm only 4 minutes in it, but he's coming across as an asshole in the first 2 minutes, saying that he doesn't give a damn that people are questioning his character, saying "I'm pissed that they are questioning my character, my integrity. As a person that doesn't need the fame, doesn't need the hype, doesn't need the media, I could care less,I couldn't give 2 craps about that".
I would have said to him "well, your fans care, and unless you couldn't care less about them, you might want to change your attitude from anger to humility and apologize to them for insisting that the FBI DID tell you it was a noose, when everyone around you was telling you otherwise".
He actually had the nerve to say at the 6.18 mark "people don't want to know the truth".
People don't want to know the truth??
How 'bout this pally, YOU didn't want to know the truth, when no less than 15 FBI agents came to you and TOLD YOU it was NOT what you thought it was, and then in all your arrogance, you get on Don Lemon's show here and say "It WAS a noose".
I agree with you, this guy IS a jackass.
