Bragging about doing something is completely different from denying that you’ve ever done it.
This morning, Thursday, October 13th, 2016, Joe Scarborough said “I’m skeptical about the timing of all of this dropping, talking about an October Surprise, when again, as you said, there have been 1,000 triggering events that would have made sense….. I’m just asking why suddenly all of this stuff is all blowing up in October… Perhaps it’s all innocent. Perhaps there is no Oppo Drop. Perhaps it’s not coordinated.”
A Herb is a worthless dude, in the context of whatever you’re talking about.
A nobody. A non-player character (NPC) like the artificial intelligence people you see running around in video games that the game itself is controlling instead of a human. A totally inconsequential and ineffective male of the species.
So for example, if you’re pitching in a baseball game and the bases are loaded and the dude walking towards the plate to bat can’t hit worth a damn, you won’t be worried about it because he’s a Herb.
That doesn’t mean he isn’t well-paid, well-regarded in society, or successful in business.
It just means that in this context, attempting to hit against your pitching, he isn’t worth ****.
Similarly, dudes tell on themselves that THEY aren’t **** when it comes to bagging chicks.
