By insulting other people? Please, he has to have MORE experiences and respect for other people before he decides to run for president, and besides, I don't think he has what it takes to become president, sorry, Sharon.:(

In this installment of the Illipsis, Jay Smooth looks at the very human tendency, especially among comedians, to respond to criticism defensively.

+Jay Smooth The curiosity of how well you'd be able to take your own advice is powerful, but I've just discovered your work and don't have any actual criticisms. I promise you I'll extend you the compliment of holding you accountable when you show your fallible side. I only hope I can manage it with the grace you just did for Ms. Schumer.
