Quote:We’ll get back to that in a second. First, you know, Dick Durbin has said some colorful things himself. In 2005, he compared U.S. troops to Nazis, remarks that he was forced to apologize for on the Senate floor (via WaPo):

Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) yesterday offered a tearful apology on the Senate floor for comparing the alleged abuse of prisoners by American troops to techniques used by the Nazis, the Soviets and the Khmer Rouge, as he sought to quell a frenzy of Republican-led criticism.

Durbin, the Democratic whip, acknowledged that "more than most people, a senator lives by his words" but that "occasionally words will fail us and occasionally we will fail words." Choking up, he said: "Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies."


Tricky Tricky Dick.

Nice apology. That's all we're asking from Trump too - glad you get it.

Perfect- I must have missed Trumps apology for this thread to be relevant. What did Donny say?

Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings - unfortunately, no trust!

So you prove Trump knows how to lie. We already know that. What's your point?

This passive-agressive BS towards the President is getting real old real fast.

That was no apology....

"Some may believe that my remarks crossed the line. To them, I extend my heartfelt apologies."

He did not say he was regretful for saying what he said, only that "some" felt it crossed the line.

In that quote nowhere did he say he had a "regretful acknowledgment of saying what he said"

President Trump should never have trusted Tricky Dick and he should take a long hard look at Graham. He was right to say "no trust". He should not have left it up to them.
