Unbelievable Comparisons

During the interview, Sandoval expressed his surprise at the immense attention his scandal received, likening it to the notoriety of the George Floyd and O.J. Simpson cases. He stated, “I’m not a pop-culture historian really but I witnessed the O.J. Simpson thing and George Floyd and all these big things, which is really weird to compare this to that, I think, but do you think in a weird way it’s a little bit the same?”
