"My kids are like Israel and Palestine and I'm like America. The little one's like Palestine because she always gets screwed, she gets the worst deal. She's like, 'She threw a rock at my face' and I'm like, 'You're fine. You have a great life, you have to take a rock to the face once in a while, you're fine.' The older one is like Israel, she comes up to me like, 'She burnt all my dolls!' I'm like, 'Look, I can't do anything about it right now. Your sister is crazy, please don't make me talk to her. I'll work it out, you and me. I'll buy you a really cool missile and whatever you do with it is totally up to you."
