This is a casual reminder that I am not supporting Toews’ answer. I merely said that I understand how PR with this works and what the organization would have told Toews vaguely what to answer and Jon fucked it up. Royally.
So yes, be critical! Say the wording was awful and what he implied wasn’t what it should have been! Good!
But also remember that there are multiple parties that Toews had to please when making that answer.
