Anyway, he recommends that she get proper licensure and she tells him to suck on her licensure and he explains who he is, and she refuses to finish his haircut, because she's an unrecognizable asshole this week, and she's like, "Archie Rodriguez! I have six weeks booked! And you're saying I can't run my own salon!" Um, first of all: get your fucking license, you fucking freak. You're on the grid, start acting like it. And secondly, he's all "Democracy in action touches each one of us, because elective government is the only way that we can keep our elected officials, and our neighbors, from taking advantage of us. We are in the process of redefining what 'American' means. What side of that are you comfortable being on? With immigration hate speech on the rise and becoming a mainstream plank in some platforms, and armed civilian militias like the Minutemen looking to enforce racist ideals last seen a half-century ago, you are looking at an election in which a major part of the fight is about you, yourself and your family, and whether or not you even have the right to make yourself come true, or have the right to call yourself an American. And if you don't vote, I'm sorry, but you don't have that right. You're saying you don't want it, and you're proving anybody who ever accused you or your family of traitorous opportunism right."

Betty hems and haws and whatever, has no good ideas, and Wili's like, "She's not like most supermodels, she is going to notice we're stalling," and over there Adriana Lima finishes off a Rubik's Cube and starts on the NYT Sunday crossword and whatever is lame, and then Betty runs over to ask if she ate all the tico berries in her sizzling hot fruit basket, and they some interminable conversation that I don't understand became frankly Adriana Lima talks like her head has been run over by a Volvo, but whatever, Betty was the one that did the research and yes she has tico berries, and then they do the photo shoot. And yes, she's pretty. We get it. That's implied by "supermodel." Who the eff do you think is watching this show?
