Scott Kelly, a retired American astronaut with multiple space flights under his belt, apologized Sunday after quoting Winston Churchill and calling the 20th century British prime minister "one of the greatest leaders of modern times."
"Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill. My apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities, racist views which I do not support. My point was we need to come together as one nation. We are all Americans. That should transcend partisan politics," Kelly wrote on Twitter in the evening.

Who the eff is this guy talking about?
I just posted on Twitter that a few months ago, I was checking to see if a Churchill quote was accurate. I came across a Churchill quote website and emailed them. Sir Winstons grandson wrote me back.
I was not embarrassed, I was proud to make the brief acquaintance of the grandson of the man who saved the world from tyranny.
Scott Kelly is an idiot.
This spaceman is an A-Hole.
Sick and tired of historical revisionism and craven whites.
What atrocities did Churchill commit? What exactly is he upset about?
You’re not fit to shine his shoes. Very possibly the greatest man of the 20th Century.

Commie libs. So sick of their historical revisionism and judging historical figures who were much better people than the commie libs will ever be.
I was confused until he gave the interview, the idiot went on about the country being racist blah blah.
he didnt “apologize” for quoting Churchill in our interpretation of him being one of the greatest but the racist crap, was totally stupid. I think he went to outer space too many times and affected his brain..
Another one bites the dust.
Send him a new training bra.

The man needs to suck in some good air. Or he needs to be drop kicked into one of the Muslim countries. Give him 30 days and he’d be begging to come home and will understand Winston Churchill from a personal perspective.
What a front-hole!
He should join the Jeff Flake fan club.
Obviously, not only has he gone into space, but he’s got plenty of space between his ears.
