Discussion: Clinton Camp Calls Trump Apology ‘Teleprompter Regret’

“Teleprompter regret” – what a great way of saying “reading words someone else wrote so you can blame that person later…”

Good phrase, but anyone believing Trump now WANTS to be fooled.

Regrets, much like an RSVP can’t make it reply, are not going to win over any of the groups his original offensive words were meant to disrespect.

About time to start that long vacation dude. Actually, he has been on vacation for 70 years.

Perfect turn of phrase . I do believe we have the smart ones on our side.
Mourning Joe was practically peeing himself with delight.
I had to turn it of before I lost my breakfast listening to the “serious” people tell me that this is the pivot and Hillary should start worrying.
What are they going to do , rub a magic bottle and create more angry white guys.
The numbers are against him

Exactly. NYT had an article about that yesterday. Even if the angry white male demographic shows up 100% at the polls, and HO gets 99% of that vote, it will not be enough to win.

Yes, the MSNBC anchors (except for Rachel Maddow) have gotten their marching orders. I thought that Chris Matthews was going to get on his hands and knees and grovel before Trump’s new campaign manager last night.

And the media is lining up, gleefully. They were complicit in the rise of Trump and want to see it carried out.

The Republican nominee did not directly apologize to any specific individual or group in his speech.

Well of course he didn’t apologize. He’s made it very clear that the act of apologizing is an anathema to him that he will never, under any circumstances, practice. What he said is he felt regret, and the regret is that the tactic of personal attack has boomeranged on him, not that anyone was hurt. He’s constitutionally incapable of the empathy required to even understand the pain he’s caused other people. It’s simply a source of enjoyment for him when he sees evidence that he succeeded in causing it. And source of regret when it doesn’t bring him sufficient adulation, or what his tiny mind calls “win”.

I’d say less that they want to see it carried out, than that they see miles and miles of

shocking, disgusting, horrendous, titillating headlines

coming down the pike. The only thing the media fears is ennui and insufficient clicks. This ensures the circus continues for a few more weeks at current or elevated levels.

Trump: Hillary is nuts. She has brain damage. No apologies this time:

Trump apologized for the “personal pain” he has caused some Americans during the 2016 race by choosing “the wrong words” or saying “the wrong thing” during a Thursday night campaign rally in North Carolina.

Which is it — he’s apologizing for remarks made during the 2016 race or only for comments made during a Thursday night campaign rally in North Carolina?
