Primo: This messaging thing! Samantha wants me to craft my message and say things that aren't really true.
Me: That's not the right way to get elected.
Primo: Not to mention, shouldn't she have had me do this a few months ago? Isn't that what she's supposed to do as my campaign manager? Manage my campaign? Why is she waiting until now to bring this up?
Me: It doesn't matter. You don't need to "craft your message." You know where you stand. You have to be honest.
Primo: I'm kind of upset that she's doing it this way. She's not doing it right. She should have said this a long time ago.
Me: I know. But I want you to think about what you can do, what you can control. There is no point in wasting time over what should have been.
Primo: But I like to whine about that.
Me: I know.
