Sorry, I’ll explain.
What I meant was that John often jokes about himself being a “hater,” and thus created a comedic caricature (i.e. “Hater-Aid”) whose views are usually exaggerated beyond those of the “Real John.”
The “+1 Kevin” means that I’m agreeing with Kevin. Long story short: John’s joking half the time when he hates; Esteban isn’t.
YAY online shit-talking!
