    TheBlaze founder and 2020 Radio Hall of Fame inductee Glenn Beck issued a public apology to President Donald Trump for doubting him in 2016. In a series of tweets, the talk-show host wrote, "I am feeling so humbled this week. I feel truly horrible for the things I said and believed in 2016 about @realDonaldTrump. I believed the worst politically, which he proved me wrong at almost every turn. In the most dramatic cases (life/Israel/China/authoritarian)." Beck pointed out that the president deserves to be praised for his handling of the economy during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to researchers at Johns...
  • If Joe Biden Publicly Apologized To Tara Reade, He Could Probably Get Out Of This Mess

    The irony of this whole Tara Reade/"Fingers" Biden situation is that if Gropin Joe came out and made a public apology to her RIGHT NOW, he could most likely contain the blast damage from this situation. There's considerable sympathy on his side and in the middle with the independents for the #MeToo movement, and "believing all women". Telling the truth in the forthright "common man" Joe Biden way might just defuse the bomb. As it stands now, the longer Joe's Democrat political advisors delay the inevitable, the more collateral damage there is among his defenders, who are being forced to...

    A Yahoo! reporter got his facts wrong during President Trump's briefing with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Tuesday. The reporter, Hunter Walker, asked Trump why South Korea was far outpacing the U.S. on testing per capita. A surprised President Trump shot back that Walker's numbers didn't sound quite right, and Dr. Deborah Birx confirmed his suspicions a few minutes later. Addressing Walker, Birx corrected him that while South Korea is at 11 tests per 100,000, the U.S. is at 17 per 100,000.  ICYMI: Mainstream media reporter tries to pick fight with President Trump and Dr. Birx, loses— Elizabeth...
  • Wall Street Journal Shouldn’t Apologize for Article Criticizing China’s Communist Party

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 27, 2020 | Kenny Xu
    The Wall Street Journal should stand firm in the face of China’s action last week to rescind the media credentials of three Journal reporters and order them to leave the country. Chinese authorities said the expulsion was over the Journal’s publishing a commentary by academic Walter Russell Mead headlined “China Is the Real Sick Man of Asia,” which addresses the communist nation’s economic fragility and the worldwide effects of a possible Chinese collapse. The Chinese government claimed that use of the term “Sick Man of Asia” in the headline of the Feb. 3 article was racist toward the Chinese people....

    Don Lemon, alleged news reporter at CNN, had a merry old time making fun of Donald Trump and his supporters on his program with two other yahoos who thought it was hysterical to mock Southern accents and question our ability to read good. After his unbelievably stupid breakdown on air, where he pretended to wipe tears from his eyes because he was laughing so hard, he is now claiming he had no idea what his guests were actually saying. Yeah, right. "This is personally important to me to address this," Lemon said at the end of his show on Tuesday....

    Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe apologized to an FBI investigator after changing his story regarding a leak to the media in October 2016, according to documents released Tuesday. McCabe was interviewed May 9, 2017, the same day James Comey was fired as FBI director, regarding two separate leaks to the media. During the interview, FBI agents also asked McCabe whether he knew how FBI information wound up in an Oct. 23, 2016, Wall Street Journal article about an investigation of the Clinton Foundation. McCabe said during that sit-down he did not know how the Journal story came about, but...

    Fired FBI Director James Comey on Sunday said he was “wrong” to say the FISA process was “followed” — however he remained defiant and claimed the mistakes were all just human error and sloppy FBI work. Comey appeared on “Fox News Sunday” and told host Chris Wallace that Horowitz was right in his conclusion that the FBI had made significant errors in targeting Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Comey however was still defiant and denied any purposeful wrongdoing and argued the FBI was sloppy and made mistakes. Even as Chris Wallace showed Comey clips of DOJ IG Michael Horowitz saying...

    Associated Press ^ | November 18, 2019 | Brian Slodysko
    Michael Bloomberg on Sunday apologized for his longstanding support of the controversial “stop-and-frisk” police strategy ahead of a potential Democratic presidential run, a practice that he embraced as New York’s mayor and continued to defend despite its disproportionate impact on people of color. Addressing a black church in Brooklyn, Bloomberg said he was “sorry” and acknowledged it often led to the detention of blacks and Latinos. “I can’t change history,” Bloomberg told the congregation. “However today, I want you to know that I realize back then I was wrong.” Bloomberg’s reversal is notable for someone who is often reluctant to...
  • The worst piece of advice ever to Trump: Jonah Goldberg of National Review Says he should apologize

    American Thinker ^ | 11/01/2019 | Jack Hellner
    Jonah Goldberg, writing at National Review, says that President Trump is guilty and should apologize. In l’affaire Ukraine, the president is guilty as charged. And the best strategy for him to avoid impeachment by the House and perhaps even removal by the Senate is to admit it, apologize, and let voters make their own judgment. It’s also the best way to fend off a disaster for Senate Republicans.   This is one pathetic piece of advice which could have been written by any of many NeverTrumpers like Boot, Noonan, Rubin, Brooks and Romney, who like to pretend they still are...

    After setting off an internet firestorm last week when they apologized for serving lunch at an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement detention center in Batavia, the owners of Lloyd Taco are apologizing for last week's apology and are hopeful they will not apologize in the future. "We take responsbility for what transpired last week but we want to emphasize that we don't take sides," Lloyd Taco co-owner Pete Cimino said Monday.

    National Review ^ | October 23, 2019 | Tobias Hoonhout
    Former vice president Joe Biden apologized Tuesday night for calling Bill Clinton’s 1998 impeachment a “partisan lynching.” Biden’s comments were unearthed after President Trump faced criticism Tuesday for characterizing House Democrats’ impeachment efforts as a “lynching” on Twitter. Trump’s comments sparked a bipartisan controversy. Senator Susan Collins (R., Maine) responded by saying “the President never should have made that comparison,” while Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) called the use of the term “disgraceful.” Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) defended Trump, calling the impeachment inquiry “a lynching in every sense” and “un-American.” Biden joined in and tweeted a response to Trump, calling...

    Twitter has apologized for briefly allowing a hashtag that translates to 'Die Trump' to trend in Turkey. '#MahvolursunTrump' began trending on Twitter on Monday after US President Donald Trump threatened to 'destroy and obliterate' the Turkish economy if he deemed the nation's military action in Syria 'off limits'. 'This phrase should not have appeared in trends, and we're sorry for this mistake,' a Twitter spokesperson said in a statement to 'At times, we do prevent certain content from trending and we have now done so with this trend.' The Twitter trend came hours after the White House announced Sunday...

    As you have likely heard already, North Korea fired off two more short-range missiles into the ocean over the past week or so. This comes just as the United States moves forward with previously planned military exercises with South Korea, no doubt annoying dictator Kim Jong-un. The missile launches have no doubt put some strain on the “special relationship” that President Trump has been attempting to foster with North Korea’s tyrant, but yesterday he announced that he had received a “beautiful” three page letter from Kim, including a “small apology” for the missile tests and assurances that they would...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday again called on former Vice President Joe Biden to apologize for touting his relationships with segregationists, saying Biden’s former colleagues participated in a “disgusting system.” “It is one thing to work with people you have fundamental disagreements with, it’s another to kind of extol those relationships,” Sanders said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “You cannot be extolling people who really were part of a disgusting system.” “I think Joe owes the country an apology on that,” Sanders said, adding “Do I think Joe Biden is a racist? Absolutely not.” Biden sparked controversy last...

    Time Magazine columnist Ian Bremmer apologized Monday for fabricating a quote from President Donald Trump about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that went viral the day before. “My tweet yesterday about Trump preferring Kim Jong Un to Biden as President was meant in jest,” Bremmer tweeted Monday. “The President correctly quoted me as saying it was a ‘completely ludicrous’ statement. I should have been clearer. My apologies.” Bremmer’s apology comes after he tweeted a quote attributed to the president alleging he said, “Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden.” Many people...

    Ian Bremmer is a political scientist who teaches at New York University. He also apparently works at Time magazine and appears on television occasionally as an expert in foreign affairs. Sunday he created quite a firestorm when he tweeted out a fake quote attributed to President Trump. For a while, Bremmer doubled-down and refused to delete the tweet or apologize, even after other blue-checked progressives began sharing it widely. Today, Bremmer finally apologized: My tweet yesterday about Trump preferring Kim Jong Un to Biden as President was meant in jest. The President correctly quoted me as saying it was...

'ivesssapology for a video which is allegedly is a caricature of an otherwise halting speech pattern,' tweeted Giuliani, one of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers. '[S]he should first stop, and apologize for, saying the President needs an “intervention.” Are' The tweet ended there, leading some on Twitter to speculate that Giuliani was drunk in the 9:00 a.m. hour. It's unclear whether his opening word, a slurred-speech mashup, was...

    History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable “fact” with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.Hill’s testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. It’s reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters...
