I had to defend Ryan Lochte's honor against one of my friends who was saying that he was an arrogant jerk who was mean to Michael Phelps (!) but then we both agreed that Ryan has seaweed for brains so it was okay.
What? Your friend is a fool! How can this person live with themself about being so incredibly wrong? Has this person not read ESPN’s fanfiction-esque coverage of the great olympic rivalry?
You are forgiving and loyal friend.
