What is the regrettable comment made by victoria noodleman nuland during a drunk dial jeremiad* to the ukrainian ambassador on an unsecure line to which she responded “good trade craft” to try to set up a smoke screen to hide the fact that there was little advanced spying involved as the phone call was on a normal cell phone.
Put down the merlot sugar puss.
*A jeremiad is a long literary work, usually in prose, but sometimes in verse, in which the author bitterly laments the state of society and its morals in a serious tone of sustained invective, and always contains a prophecy of society’s imminent downfall.
If you get sick of laughing at the word jeremiad, use harangue.
1. A long pompous speech, especially one delivered before a gathering. 2. A speech or piece of writing characterized by strong feeling or expression; a tirade.
Wait this isn’t jeopardy?
