Let’s set the table here

This one comes from The Daily from the New York Times (Thursday December 15) about the Russian military mobilization earlier this year.  Sabrina Tavernise said “let’s set the table here”. I believe based on the context she meant to say “set the scene” (establish the setting or describe something so that others can understand it) and mixed it with “on the table” (up for discussion). A big thanks to Yvonne Stam for hearing this one and sending it in!
