I'm having a hard time making sense of the third sentence in this quote by Mike Judge (the film producer/writer/director):
It seems like there's a lot of people who just do not understand satire. They think it's weird. There's people who just don't understand you portray something or just explore a character, it means you're condoning it, saying this is the way to live. It's just so simple-minded.
The only thing I can think of is that he meant to say that when you portray something it doesn't mean you condone it, but that would sound like the exact opposite of the sentence, so I am confused.
