Gov. Andrew Cuomo says “America was never that great”

Then walks remark back.  The governor is not nearly as smart as he thinks he is.

I also see this as a parallel to Sec. Hillary Clinton’s remark about ‘deplorables’.  After spending so much time in the bubble with likeminded associates, you get desensitized to demeaning phrases, you say them all the time and all agree, and then one day forget to keep it to yourself.

Watching all the time

I called into a video conference this week.  There were attendees from multiple sites.  During the first presentation, which was rather long, the camera feed remained stuck on one of the sites.  Inspection showed the attendees were on mute, chatting or working on other projects.  Not very polite for presenter, but clear for all to see.  So let this be a warning.

Bluster, straight up

Or so I have learned from the estimable popehat.com.  Non-specific complaints, lack of factual arguments, threats, hedge wording (“if you and your colleagues do not stop with the hit pieces that are full of lies and defamatory statements” – ie, presumably no complaint with hit pieces that are true).  I sense bluff by Michael Avenatti.
