Show opening introduction

Why does Lou announce two people’s names as “Lou Jackie” which sounds like one person’s name? Can there be any reason besides flustering Jackie? I have reported his abusive language accusing Jackie for which she had to apologize; misogyny is adult-hyperactivity called obsessive compulsion: victims violate convention to feel powerful—exercise-substitutes stimulate circulation so bloods’ chemicals swallowed, smelled, touched pool less so fewer cells die,..., motive subliminal ( help Jackie Schmellin)!
