He continued, “I spent the final 90 days replaying and understanding the nuances and the complexities of what happened for the reason that moment. And I’m not likely to make an effort to unpack all that at this time. But I could say to everyone, there is absolutely no section of me that thinks that has been the proper way to behave for the reason that moment. There is absolutely no section of me that thinks that is the optimal solution to handle a sense of disrespect or insults.”
