    If you've been paying attention to the latest viral controversy this week, you know that the following audio says "Yanny," not "Laurel." It says Yanny. Those who claim it says "Laurel" are spreading fake news. Regardless, the Air Force sent a Yanny vs. Laurel reference out on their Twitter feed Thursday morning about the Taliban. By the afternoon, they took it down and apologized.

    GOP Rep. Walter Jones (N.C.) on Thursday introduced legislation that would instruct the House to call on the White House to formally apologize for a staffer’s “insensitive comments” that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was “dying anyway.” Jones, a vocal critic of President Trump, rolled out the resolution after becoming outraged by comments made about McCain by White House aide Kelly Sadler and her refusal to publicly apologize, The Hill has learned. Last year, McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer, and the longtime senator is now receiving treatment at his home near Sedona, Ariz. House Resolution 901 was...

    Rand Paul launched a typically obnoxious attack on Gina Haspel today. Here is one account: “To really appoint the head cheerleader for waterboarding to be head of the CIA? How can you trust somebody who did that to be in charge of the CIA,” Paul wondered, adding, “To read of her glee during the waterboarding is just absolutely appalling.” Paul was referring to an account of a waterboarding session with suspected al Qaeda lieutenant Abu Zubaydah, who was subjected to so-called enhanced interrogation techniques now widely considered to be torture. ., . The problem is that this conduct appears to...

    Kanye West revealed in a TMZ interview on Tuesday that he wanted to apologize to George W. Bush for saying in 2005 that the president did not care about black people in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Kanye West said he was always told not to apologize to Bush, but that he recently saw the former president pushing his father’s wheelchair at Barbara Bush’s funeral in March, and he felt sympathy for him. “Do you know how bad I would want to go to George Bush and say I’m sorry for hurting you. I was an artist I was hurting...

    Comedian Kathy Griffin said Monday that she was taking back her apology for the photo published last year in which she is holding a bloody severed head that resembles President Trump. “By the way, I take the apology back,” Griffin said on "The View." “Look, I’m not holding back on this family, this president is different and I have been through the mill.” May marks a year since the photo with Griffin was released, and “what a year it’s been,” the comedian said on the day time talk show. Griffin was insulted that she got publicly shamed for a “$5...

On reflection, in the spirit of Holy Week, I apologize for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland," Ingraham tweeted.

    Laura Ingraham, a Fox News host, apologized under pressure on Thursday for taunting a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., as three companies confirmed they would pull advertising from her show. The dispute began Wednesday when Ms. Ingraham shared an article about the student, David Hogg, 17, getting rejected from some of the colleges to which he had applied and accused him of whining about it. In response, Mr. Hogg, who has rapidly become a prominent advocate for gun-control policies, called on Ms. Ingraham’s advertisers to boycott her show. Three of the companies, TripAdvisor, Wayfair and Nutrish, said...

    “The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me,” the Oscar-winner said. “Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.” Lawrence also revealed how President Trump’s victory invigorated her interest in politics. The Hunger Games star said she’s liberal and previously opted not to alienate huge swathes of her audience — as well as her Kentucky-based family and friends, who she admits don’t like her left-wing politics. “I’ve always thought that it was...

    Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday was met with widespread approval from most of the country, but many Democrats, liberals, progressives, and other longtime opponents of the president were unmoved by the speech. One exception to this general trend in the media sphere was Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who tweeted his approval of many different aspects of Trump’s speech before concluding: Tonight, I owe Donald Trump an apology. Tonight, I was moved and inspired. Tonight, I have hope and faith in America again. It may go away tomorrow…But tonight, America is great again. #SOTU— Frank Luntz (@FrankLuntz) January...

But tonight, America is great again. #SOTU.” The fawning didn’t stop there. “Even in foreign policy and national security,” Luntz wrote in a separate tweet, “this speech [is] a perfect blend of strength and empathy. These heroic stories break our hearts, but sturdy our resolve. This is the Trump his voters wanted him to be. #SOTU.” And this: ‘This speech represents the presidential performance that Trump observers have...

    Liberal elite magazine Vanity Fair says it is very sorry it offended its subscriber base by suggesting Hillary Clinton move on with life and take up new hobbies like knitting. The suggestion, part of an online video poking fun at the failed presidential candidate, was greeted with outrage, disdain and near-hysteria from Vanity Fair’s readership who immediately complained of sexism. "It was an attempt at humor and we regret that it missed the mark," Beth Kseniak, a spokeswoman for Vanity Fair said Wednesday. The video can still be found on Twitter. Clinton supporters were so angry over incident that they...
