Andrew Yang (the Democratic presidential candidate) talks about "normal" so much....

It's great to see a normal face, because I'm a normal guy. It'd be great for two normal guys like us to get together and talk about world events — you know, in a normal sort of way....At the link: the "Lolita" clip and Yang's "normal" quotes.
