Agreed, we don't know enough about him yet.
Does his statement differ in any significant way from your own?
If not, then how is he any better than you?

Good grief. You sound like you’re just looking for a rumble. No one fawned over him. People respect what he said, where he said it and in front of whom he said it. Why is that agitating you so?
No one said he’s better than any of us. But he’s a more public figure than most, so the public platform helps to shine a spotlight on his speech. Would the exact speech garner the same attention if you had given it? I’m going with no on that.
