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.
