  1. Hope the question is asked and there’s more traction on “DID KEY KNOW?” Did he know that Bailey didn’t like him, she didn’t fawn over him like others do and particularly other staff in the cafe. It’s not just about how a girl in the 21st century should be able to go to work and not be repeatedly harassed by a man, especially by a man in power, but if she samples to him an indifferent or disdainful demeanour towards him and his policies should she be berated for it personally by him? No. Now it isn’t political by Bailey, it WAS political by Key.
