I’m tired of it.”

“Basically, I was asked by the first lady to be quiet, and I can’t be quiet any longer. … I was surprised by how negative the crowd seemed to be. It was actually a little unsettling and disturbing,”She obviously thought she was going to make an example of me or something. I wasn’t scared at all.” said Sturtz
