The Word ‘Maintain’ Causes Mike Bloomberg Great Pain


From the Observer‘s Politicker blog comes this video of Mayor Bloomberg going somewhat apoplectic when Newsday reporter Michael Frazier uses the word “maintain” in a question about the Sean Bell case.

“Maintain is a word that I don’t think is appropriate, sir,” Bloomberg said. “The next time you have a question and you want to insinuate that I lie, just talk to the press secretary. I don’t think we have a question for you.”
