NYC education reporters take note. Straying from his Code Blue demeanor, Mayor Mike proves that he will devour you (without checking your calories) if you accuse him of “maintaining” anything - about NYC schools or otherwise. That’s a shame, because this has been a blockbuster school year for “maintaining” in NYC. (Greatest hits: here, here, and here.)
In the clip below, a Newsday reporter says, “Mayor, you maintain that...” Bloomberg cuts him off with: “Maintain is a word that I don’t think is appropriate, sir. The next time you have a question and want to insinuate that I lie, just talk to the press secretary. I don’t think we have a question for you.” (Via the Daily Intel.)
