"What I have done I have done because it has been play.

Pretty much every Republican ever: "If you vote for me, I will increase your income by reducing your taxes."
Media: "Sound legit."
Yang: "Here's $1000/mo. Do anything you want with it. I'd rather change lives for the better than spend it on advertising."
Media: "Sounds fishy." https://t.co/7UIIy5wiGK
