(The mayor chuckles, pauses, then answers.)
A: "Yes. (Smiling.)
(More reporters' laughter.)
A: (Smiling) "Yes."
A: "Yes." (The mayor chuckles again, and takes a drink of water.)
(There's a pause.)
A: "No." (The mayor smiles again.)
A: "Yes." (Smiling.)
A: "Not right now, no."
A: "I'm sorry, say that again?"
A: "No, I don't think so." (Now with a more serious and formal tone.)
A: "Um, first of all, we're speculating, um…"
A: "No, no, no, I know. It's -- well, first of all, I don't know. (Laughs.) We're speculating. I don't know what that person may or may not do. You know, so."
A: "I do."
(Reporters' laughter. The mayor shakes head and chuckles.)
(Louder reporters' laughter. The mayor's mother then jokingly chimed in with a loud "no" of her own, gesturing with her arms for added emphasis.)
A: "No, that's okay. I kind of opened it because I answered your question."
