Scope and a Beam
Can someone please help with with this?
I'm transcribing something and the phrase cropped up. It's used like this:
"I'm not going to talk about Putin, it's too much, 'all sewn with white thread,' and I do not need to explain that either."
but Google is not helping me here on this one.
If anyone Russian, or anyone who could explain what this turn of phrase means could help, it'd be much appreciated.
