It's rather comic. he didn't say her full name and so that's the story he's going to stick to, even though he has a long history (already outlined by Dale) of insulting female members of the media. If he says, "I was talking about my fricking mom, I'm just so tired of her already," I'll cut him slack, but I think that's the only person that would do it.
I guess the real lesson here, is whether you're calling your next door neighbour a bitch or the reporter down the hall a bitch, the smart move is to wait until you're out of the newsroom your'e in, and out of the earshot of several photographers and reporters. That's my takeaway.
FWIW, I also continued to be baffled by what Amin Massoudi he does. He doesn't co-ordinate communications. Whether working for the mayor or Doug he just seems to whisper to them and obstruct reporters. I suppose someone somehwere will hire him when this all over but I honestly don't see any sense he is "good" at working as a comms official.
Massoudi, like most people working for the Fords, is a high school kid in his first suit. He's just thrilled to have a job that doesn't involve flipping burgers.
And he has four more days to enjoy it.
