Cirie is full-on pissed off now: "I'm sorry, King Terry [this gets exaggerated finger quotes], that this torch was where you were walking." And then he does the "I Am Arguing With A Woman, Therefore, It's All About Hysteria" thing, and he says, "All right, all right, Cirie, don't get so upset." Don't get so upset? You just browbeat her into apologizing to you, dude. That has a way of making people upset. Not that he needed to make her upset. I mean, his entire attack there was a catalog of condescending bullshit, but mostly, what strikes me is how preposterously unnecessary it was, no matter who's right or wrong about the torch. Even if she wasn't as careful as she should have been, what would have been wrong with just saying, "Hey, I know it wasn't intentional, but I almost stepped on your torch, so if you could kind of throw it out of the way so nobody trips over it, that would be great"? It could have been over in ten seconds. That's how you cope with living with other people. What would have been wrong with that; it's better than that snotty remark, "Is that where it goes?" followed by comparing her to a child? Why is it necessary to make things ugly when they're not? This is why I tend to agree with the EEFPs, who pointed out that in all likelihood, what's at issue here is that Terry was frustrated because of his total inability to control or predict anything that happens with the voting, so he took that frustration out on Cirie. The torch just didn't justify that level of reaction, you know?
