There was only way he would have done that.
Look at me, I am a big shot. I am talking to POTUS
Sondland does have that kind of ego.
But think about your own phone. In an open air restaurant it is hard enough to hear with it close to your ear. I use speakerphone because I can’t hear
If I was Sondland and I couldn’t hear, I would step outside or move to a less noisy area....
