Clearly the person who posted the "quote" by himself was choosing to express his own opinion, or perhaps trolling, rather than responding to the query.  The other line in the posting was at least very minimally a possible attempt to respond to the query.

Because the source of the quote is the person who offered the quote,
quoting himself. Which, since he was not involved in any way that I can
ascertain in the hearings, is (in addition to being a purely snarky aside)
irrelevant to the request.
