SCENE: Hop on elevator with the senator and she’s surprised another reporter’s behind me.

Matt Laslo: “She’s one of my interns.”

Tina Smith: “Oh, that’s great!”

ML:Okay so this is random, have you heard of this UAP-UFO whistleblower David Grusch?” 

TS: “Nuh-uh.”

ML: “No?”

TS: “Yeah, yeah.”

ML: “Look into it. It’s interesting. I’m trying to figure out if it’s tied to Schumer’s new bill.”

TS: “I haven’t heard anything about that.”

ML: “Appreciate you, ma’am. Have a good one.”
