    not you

    What is the following in red saying?

    Terry Gross: I'm not here to prove that I'm smart---
    Gene Simmons: Not you---
    Terry Gross: I'm not here to prove that you're not smart or ...

    Is it saying "of course, you are not smart," or "you are not here to prove that you are smart?"

    Thank you.

    Re: not you

    It is ambiguous. It could be literal or sarcastic.

    I imagine it is sarcastic.
