Respect for this court and its authority compels me to stand by that decision today,” he wrote. “

    And the fake doctor is left babbling and sputtering and angry that someone with a brain would question the fake doctor.
    I guess the fake doctor is angry that someone is questioning his babbling and nonsense.
