Mast spoke for nearly three hours, instead of one and a half hours.

Emotions ran high on both sides when he was asked why he still supports the president.

The congressman was asked about the future of healthcare and tax reform, as well as other issues the President ran on.

He also spoke about military action in Afghanistan and the president's proposed ban on transgendered people serving in the military.
