Not a timeless classic, but I found this a lot more entertaining than I’d expected.
Presumably means “blackmailers” or something, because going on a hunger strike doesn’t make you a terrorist. Imprisoned terrorists have been known to go on hunger strikes, but they’re already done something terroristic to get there in the first place.
Trophy Wife’s “same difference” makes no sense to me either way. Unless she equates daughters with terrorists, which is kind of dysfunctional.
