2. He's much more likely to shoot someone on 5th Avenue

Bet he's never apologized in his life

3. The Doughy Pantload is deluded.

He thinks Trump would consider apologizing, and he thinks that an apology will fix things.

4. Can't agree, exactly...

... with another President, it might work. Crooked Donald is different... he can't sincerely apologize. Even worse, he can't stop being a criminal. He will go on breaking laws - he won't stop. I'm surprised Jonah has not come to this/my conclusion.

5. If you or I did

One fourth of what he did,,we would not be able to apologize and walk away. Much less keep our job. Screw that noise!! It would just be another lie.

7. he simply can't. his base would collapse if he somehow made a sincere apology

of course, he could make a meaningless, limited, qualified, non-apology apology.

but i highly doubt he'll do even that.

First Ivanka is comparing Daddy to Thomas Jefferson, now the Doughy Pantload pops up to suggest that Donald Trump could apologize.

before he would ever apologize for anything.

13. What a contemptibly unprincipled and morally devoid jerk.

And cynical. No doubt the kind determined to stay loyal would insist it was all that was needed.

Trump could maybe bring together stadiums full of trumpsters to apologize for/with him in an orgy of laughing, lying loyalty chants. "I apologiiize! I apologiiiize! I apologiize...!"

Of course, he'd still be depraved and dangerously unfit, his crimes would still be his crimes, and their victims would be added to every day.

Unbelievable.

16. Even if that was enough, which it isn't

You have about as much chance of that happening as you do Trump finding a Genie in a bottle that can grant him a wish to make it go away. So, it's a moot point.

17. Anything you say can and will be used against you.

This is so true in many situations.

This is one of them.

His Base will collapse. And the 51% of America that is NOT on his side will use that against him.

Apology would be nice, but his lawyers wouldn't allow it.

But it has nothing to do with reality or his crimes. F that.

25. Uh. No. Just no.

We are way past that point.

First of all, a narcissist like him could never apologize for anything. And secondly, even if they could, it would not be sincere. Thirdly, even if he did get down on his knees and sincerely apologized for everything and begged for our forgiveness, it still wouldn't be enough. There is no redemption for this man. He is beyond hope.

27. Not even if he got on his hands and knees and did the entire Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem

or did the road leading into the Potala in Tibet -- in winter. Nope. Traitor Trump must go to prison for life and get a prison hair cut every 2 weeks.

28. What do you expect from the National Review?

https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/?s=national+review

eta: Obviously, Trump is way, way past any chance for apologies - it's laughable to expect him to apologize in any case.

31. I would agree...except

He asked Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, then told a journalist he would do it again, and then asked Ukraine to interfere, then admitted it, then asked China to interfere. I sense a pattern here..duh.
Reminds me of some few children I used to teach. My mantra..."The rules that apply to everyone else, also apply to you."
You know, I think they have the diagnosis wrong. He has an oppositional defiant disorder.
