Yeah. And I may be alone in this, but I think using this incident to trot out every reason people don't like him, every snide remark he's ever made, is actually a way to belittle the severity of this real, unambiguous offense. I've heard plenty of stories about him before this, everyone has, but it's never added up to anything awful -- people will be furious, and declare him a hateful little man, and then they tell a story that culminates in him saying -- an joke that wasn't funny!!
or something equally horrible, and I never really could tell what the big deal was.
Anyway, this is totally different. And I wonder if he was going for something like this
, but the thing is, that wasn't okay either, at all.
