Phillips similarly dismissed a Rolling Stone interview with President Obama, which the government also submitted, calling it “hearsay.”

Jeebus focking Christmas, the gummit’s lawyers submitted a RS interview as evidence? What’s next, trial by Wikipedia? What gaw-damn morans.

@nojo: We won’t judge you if you [sic] her.
