Its a pity that he could have been an interesting new guest at the jungle party, especially because he has a very rich vocabulary, the source said. Hes a decent person with a lot of experience in politics, knows a lot of interesting people, and knows many secrets of those people. But maybe he just didnt want to do it, so he asked for a crazy fee?
