When asked by MSNBC’s Joy Reid whether Donald Trump is sorry for all of his old “birther” claims against President Barack Obama, senior Trump adviser Jack Kingston said, “I don’t think he did anything wrong. I think he raised a question[.]”
It wasn’t that simple, though. It took him a long time to say that. In fact, for much of his five-minute appearance on MSNBC last night, he and Reid were speaking simultaneously. She asked him questions. He changed the subject. She told him she was just trying to ask questions. He protested he wasn’t “on trial.” It went on and on. In the end, the only question he did answer directly was about Trump’s old claims that Obama isn’t a U.S. citizen.
Beyond that, he talked a little bit about Melania Trump and the soldiers who died in the Benghazi attack.
Her segment was dedicated to the speech during which Trump gave a blanket mea culpa about his past behavior but never mentioned any specific thing he was really sorry for. Kingston ended up saying, “I think you guys should accept an apology and just go with it. I mean, this is what the left has been demanding. He made an apology.”
