Don’t Get Stuck on Stupid
General Honore will go into the history books for his phrase: “Don’t get stuck on stupid.”
“Don’t get stuck on stupid, reporters. We are moving forward. And don’t confuse the people please. You are part of the public message. So help us get the message straight. And if you don’t understand, maybe you’ll confuse it to the people.reporters. We are moving forward. And don’t confuse the people please.
“Female reporter: Where do they move on…
“Honore: That’s not your business.
“Male reporter: But General, that didn’t work the first time…
“Honore: Wait a minute. It didn’t work the first time. This ain’t the first time. Okay? If…we don’t control Rita, you understand? So there are a lot of pieces of it that’s going to be worked out. You got good public servants working through it. Let’s get a little trust here, because you’re starting to act like this is your problem. You are carrying the message, okay?”
