1. No, he should not apologize, he should be taken off the airwaves, period

What does an apology really do? Absolutely nothing useful.

This is what an apology represents to republicans who must give them:

1. I can say whatever I want, no matter how horrible, racist, misogynist, classicist, etc. it is, but I must say what it is in my heart, no matter how evil that little bumping organ inside me is.
2. Apologize
2.1 Keep my job
2.2 Shut people up because "I apologized"
2.3 Get more chances to say whatever I want in the future because I can always apologize again.

Soooo...An apology for a republicans means absolutely nothing, it is just a "get out of jail free" card because people in the USA put so much weight on an apology that they can use it over and over, but it means nothing to them.

4. Apologies are very useful. Perhaps you've never received a good one or had to give a good one.


They have to be sincere and there have to be deeds as well as words.

I don't think a Trump-Republicon like Carlson can give a sincere apology.

7. I guess I should have been more explicit about apologies in the mouths of repubs

Yes, I have received apologies and I have given apologies as well, and you are 100% correct, when they come from the heart they are a beautiful thing, but not when it comes from a crook who makes a calculated apology just to get out of trouble, and those are the apologies I was referring to.

"They have to be sincere"...that is the key, and these people are never sincere when they apologize.

8. By the way, I thought this line had made it explicit who I was referring to

"This is what an apology represents to republicans who must give them"

I guess I thought that line would make it specific to a certain group thinking I was not generalizing on what an apology means, only those by repubs who get caught.

2. It would be an empty, meaningless apology anyway

It's who he is. We can despise him for it and hope for his "fall from grace."

That's that, no apology needed.

5. The Bill O'Reilly Chair Of Fair + Balanced News

Ah yes "Tucker Calson", the FOX NEWS successor to Bill O'Reilly. Is it any wonder that his sucessor is Trucker Carlson. By the way isn't that a funny name? They seemed to find Obama's name funny. Well I find names like "Tucker" Carlson, "Reince" Preibus, and "Rush" Limbaugh funny.

By the way FoxNews where are the DEATH PANELS that you preached about for 8 years when Obama was President? They must be members of the DEEP STATE.
