I'm gonna go to another college that will graduate me faster. They're cool until Burr runs against Hamilton's father-in-law for Senate. The whole thing reads like a Dear Penthouse letter. Basically stopped me from being elected President of the United States. So Trying to find the straightest line through this story.
He goes to Princeton, which was then Queens College, at 13 years old. And, by the way, he sent this to his friends. And so Burr's the monster. And Washington, aware of what a, sort of, gifted but troubled kid Hamilton is, says, all right, you're gonna lead these troops to do this very specific thing in the Battle of Yorktown. Burr's bullet strikes Hamilton right between his ribs. Well, now we've gotta form a country.
I didn't touch American money, and I have all kinds of proof. Blows raspberry Ba dum, Ba, dum, Ba dum Like, he's totally showboating. You're gonna be in the guy in with the guy who knows best. This is the block I grew up. Hamilton talked shit about Burr all the time. So Hamilton writes his letters.
He's like, yo, uh, that's my wife. So she died in bed with him. But, like, you will be able to say you led a command. Being like, oh, we're at war! This whole time, all Hamilton wants is a command. And goes, yo, you know Hamilton, will you tell him this is so, like, high school gossip.
And his second held him back. And then Hamilton finally goes, I quit! I'm happy to, like, keep it on the low, but you have to pay me. He goes, will you tell Hamilton that if he's challenging me to a duel, I accept. Laughs You already got it. Again, this feels like high school. But I can't apologize for what I said, so I guess I'll see you there.
When I look back at my career, he's the one in the way. It's it's Hamilton and Washington. Burr's like, duels are stupid. Um, while he's the treasury secretary, he carries on this affair with a woman named Maria Reynolds. Um, Monroe's like, well, I didn't leak it, but if you wanna, like, fight, like, let's do this.
And I've known Burr all my life. And his second is like, no, no, no. Like like he's, like, showboating. We don't know you from a hole in the ground. And Washington's like, no, just stay aides-de-camp. Hamilton is not a great dude. And Hamilton speaks for six hours.
So Hamilton has an affair. Laughs Both laugh - Look at this. Like, here comes sick-ass Hamilton on a flaming ship. And Hamilton goes, let's start at the beginning. Both: I know who I want to take me home I know who I want to take me home - With me - I know who Both: I want to take me home Take me home - My new born - New boy Both laugh Laughs So where was I? Laughs Both laugh Whispering : I wanna order Dominos. Here's an interesting story that we haven't talked about yet.
