It looks like Monkey-gate may be over. Earlier this week, Erin Burnett raised some eyebrows as she flippantly referred to President Bush as a "monkey" during Monday's broadcast of Morning Joe. The video on YouTube has over 60,000 views.
Today, on Hardball, she apologized to President Bush. "Earlier this week I was on MSNBC, on Morning Joe, and I made a bad attempt at humor...I said something stupid, I just want to make sure I apologize if I offended anyone. I do have the upmost respect for the President, I hope he has a great weekend, and Chris, I hope you do too," Burnett said.
It would have been much better if she had just reported the news and kept her opinion to herself. Sit down and STFU Erin Burnett!
"This is bullsh!t!"
Not good enough, Erin.
Not an apology - we want penance.
Sign up to be an embed on one of the FOB’s near Tikrit. Stay there for an entire deployment. Then we’ll talk.
She must be on heck of a you-know-what for Rush to put up with that kind of stupid BDS behavior. She is an attractive woman, at least on the surface.
Is it just me, or does anyone else cringe at these kind of "apologies"? This is not apology at all, in my opinion. "IF I've offended, then I'm sorry" just doesn't cut it.
I think she should be forgiven if she’s cute.
The classic non-apology apology. If you are "offended" by having your President referred to as a monkey, there is something wrong with you.
Never. She’d only pat me on the back to find the soft spot to stick the knife in.
She’s a Democrat. She’s a Leftist. No forgivness, no mercy. Because she would never do the same for you.
is Rush throwing her the B__e?
If she called him a teddy bear we’d have to kill her
saying “I am sorry if I offended anyone” is not an apology. It is weasel words.
A real apology is “I am so sorry for what I said, it was wrong and I ask your forgiveness.”
A half-assed apology is better than defending her idiocy, I guess. However, she has forever put herself in the company of stupid MSM liberals without shame or brains to recognize it.
Hmmmm.....I would love to comment on this bimbo's grammar....but I'm going to have to lay this one at the feet of the idiot who transcribed her comments.
It’s another non-apology apology from the Left.
Happens every second @ RATS underground...
All that says is that they don’t give a damn if they offended anyone. ‘If’ means, ‘If’ I offended you, you are a moron.’
