Former White House correspondent Helen Thomas told a national conference of campus journalists that President Obama owes her an apology for his criticism last year of her comments about Israel.
"I want an apology from the president," Thomas, 90, said Tuesday to the hundreds of student journalists and their advisers attending the keynote session of the annual spring convention of College Media Advisers (CMA) at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.
Shin Inouye, director of specialty media in the presidential press office, said the White House would not comment on Thomas' demand for a presidential apology.

He'd tell her. "You just got caught. You should have been more careful."
You made me laugh so hard. Thanks for a good laugh on a Friday!!
At one time didn't B. Hussein O. give her cupcakes for her birthday???
what more does she want??? Does Hussein EVER apologize to anyone???
Can reparations be far behind?
Aaarrrghhh.......Was that necessary? I’m declaring an Internet law that all Helen Thomas photos must have the face pixelated.
Actually she want’s an apology from the TRUMAN White House. He didn’t call on her first in a 1949 presser.
Only foreign despots.
She should take off the slipknot around her neck.
That’s a HUGH improvement.
Beauty is just skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.
Yeah, right. Obama will put it on his to-do list, right after he gets back from the clubhouse.
Though Helen forgot to set her watch forward for daylight savings time, she’s always in the dark. Obama is probably her worst disappointment.
I just came here for the Helen Thomas pictures.
If she becomes a Saudi prince, Obama will bow down to her-—
Thanks. I’m gonna have nightmares tonight.
Never understood why people insist on apologies from their enemies....must just be a characteristic of a dumschit....
Don’t get the impression that you arouse my anger. You see, one can only be angry with those he respects.

There’s some legitimacy to her demand. She just said out loud what most progressives think. His condemnation of her was, I believe, phony. But that’s life in politics. If Zero thinks you might reduce his power, you’re under the bus.
Funny stuff - and so are the photos, in a sadistic sort of way. (sarc) We all know that Obama doesn’t apologize to anyone because he never does anything wrong. (/sarc) Helen Thomas? Well, she is just some screwy old lady that talks too much and gave away the true attitude of the left toward the Jews’ ancestral homeland and it’s modern, democratic government that contrasts with the fake monarchies and flat-out dictatorships that make up the ‘middle east’.
Ha Ha Ha!!
Best laugh of the day.
No, no, no, no, no...
That’s just not right (or fair)...
Geeeezusss!!!!! Ahwwwwwww! MY EYES!!!!!
TEARS, BLOOD!!!! COUGH, COUGH, COUGH!!!!
SOMEONE KICKED ME IN THE FAMILY JEWELS!!!
MAKE IT STOP!! MAKE IT STOP!!!
GASP, GASP, GASP!!!
I thought SURE I’d see the “Semi-News, Semi Satire” headline somewhere!!!!
Still burns though.
That reminds me of a time when my eyes were really burning. I was cutting some banana peppers and some hot hungarian look-alikes had gotten mixed in the bunch. Some juice squirted out and into my eye while I was cutting and boy did it ever hurt!
That would smart.
It felt like I was going to go blind. Ouch is right!
I went to a funeral a few years ago and one of the grandma’s was making salsa. She was boiling the peppers and it turned into a gas bomb, driving everyone out of the house coughing and crying.
I went over and told my friend, she’s about 85, that her style was killing everyone. So in her tiny Mexican accent she says “I don’t know what their problem is. Maybe they’re not as Mexican as they think”.
I started laughing so hard.
She said “It doesn’t bother you?”
I laughed some more and “No” in a high pitch voice as I laughed and said “Look, let’s try something else so those weaklings can come back in”.
I pulled the chiles out of the pot and roasted them on the open flame.
Made some really terrific salsa. I love it as spicy as you can make it.
After an hour or so everyone was able to come back in the house.
You remind me of a woman I know. The hotter the better.
Personally I cannot take quite that much heat.
What is your favorite hot sauce? And which would you says is the hottest you've tasted?
Tabasco has a Chipotle flavor. Uhm, so good. I poor into a shallow bowl and dip a spoon in it while watching TV.
Or I like to take Roma tomatoes(they’re sweeter), Garlic(loads), Cilantro(Sweet herb), Red Onion(sweeter and less acidic), Cracked black and green pepper coarsely ground, Paprika and then some scotch bonnets or habeneros and grind them in a Food Processor.
When I make Wasabi, for myself, I make it with enough soy sauce to make mud and then I just sit there eating sushi and bounce my leg while tapping my feet from the pain.
That’s why I only order tuna and cucumber rolls. I can’t taste anything but the wasabi. Just the way I like it.
Also, one year for Passover, we used wasabi instead of the regular horseradish for our bitter herbs. It was so good. Mmm Mmm.
Wasabi is horseradish. They grind it into a powder and add food coloring.
I know, I know, I’m Cliff Claven.
Goes great on a Rueben.
Reminds me of an old joke sung to the tune of Love and Marriage.
She actually looks genuinely cheerful in this picture.
