Drew says “explain what he’s doing” and Adam demands that Gary go find some Irish guy to explain what he’s doing to him.
Adam says that it’s great to go back to your childhood hometown and open a boy’s club or help a community, that’s not what he’s saying.

Drew has a great “French” counter point and Adam goes back into the clip, Adam keeps pausing it to mock it, I love his switch!
Adam says don’t ask the president, don’t ask OJ, don’t ask anyone to help the black community, the answer is to not have a community, help your family and go get stuff done.
