You aren’t responsible for someone else’s offensive joke.
Actually, I’ll caveat that: If you’d seen earlier evidence of problems with him and not addressed it, then sure, you’d have some responsibility here. You’d seen nothing but professional behavior from him previously, and you had no way of knowing that he was about to bust out a horrible offensive remark.
There he is, our president, both immovable object and irresistible force, unsmiling with slitty eyes beneath that car-hood of a hair-doo, lumbering from one presidential prerogative to the next through squalls of opprobrium, perplexing leaders from foreign lands, punking congressmen and senators, inducing swoons of un-safeness among the s to mouth-foaming hysterics, tweeting any old thing that flies through the interstices of his brain-pan, our Golden Golem of Greatness, MAGA sword in smallish hand against a swirling red sky. I thought the fucker would be sandbagged by a claque of Pentagon patriots inside of three months, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong.
Trump’s management of the North Korea nuclear threat has been, shall we say, less subtle than his predecessor’s.Multiple people from the meeting have called my boss and other higher-ups to complain.I am worried that my intern’s behavior will reflect badly on me.When it happened, you immediately told him to stop talking.You apologized profusely to everyone who was at the meeting, and you alerted your boss to what happened. Sometime people turn out not to be who we thought they were.
