The Democratic governor had just wrapped interviews with Japanese and German reporters late Saturday, after holding a climate coalition signing ceremony with Terry McAuliffe, or His Excellency, the honorific used for the governor of Virginia. Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer were also at the photo op.
That’s when Brown was asked whether he enjoyed it at the UN climate conference.
“No, I hate everything,” he said, allowing the slightest smile. “Why do you ask that silly question?” …
“Joy,” Brown added, fixating on the word. “See, I don’t even conceptualize the world that way … Some people say, ‘I had a great dinner last night.’ You know that story? Or, ‘Are you having a good time? Did you have a good buying experience?’
“I just don’t even think that way. I like virtually every meal I eat and every drink I take,” Brown said, turning to an aide.
