i think this full article is worth reading.
i'm doing precious little with this primary on the TL, but i'd extend this man the grace of context before this story gets legs. i don't know that this is as damning as the caption suggests...BUT--

he's a REALLY smart guy...
make no mistake, his choice of language was deliberate.
he gave a thoughtful, careful answer...
