When asked about the Marjorie scandal, he was worried for the children especially Julia because she just entered showbiz and he knows her to be quite sensitive. It was campaign period when the scandal broke loose and he was not able to talk to Marjorie about the issue. Instead, he texted his children and told them not to get affected and instead focus on their studies. He just wished that this scandal will spare their children because they do not know what really happened. Even he was not spared in his campaign. In politics, it can be more sensational and controversial. That’s why he always reminds her children to take it easy and concentrate on more important things.
