Lefty Ladies Forced to Apologize for Their Tasteless Remarks

But ever so tellingly, Hillary Clinton didn't actually utter the words 'I'm sorry,' and the others had to be pushed

“For fun, let’s call it the diva apology tour,” Fox News host Laura Ingraham said Monday night on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“A bunch of lefty ladies are issuing mea culpas after making idiotic remarks,” she added. “Isn’t that nice?”

Ingraham was referring to the recent incidents involving Hillary Clinton, Stephanie Ruhle and Joy Behar — which resulted in a trio of apologies from the women.

During a trip to India last week, Hillary Clinton actually claimed she lost the 2016 presidential election because white women voted the way their husbands told them to — and that President Donald Trump won the “backwards” states, while she won the “dynamic” places.

“She caused such an uproar in India when she wasn’t falling down the stairs that even Democrats are disowning her,” Ingraham said.

“I understand how some of what I said upset people and can be misinterpreted,” Clinton said in a post she put up on her Facebook page.

“It’s not that crazy when you think about our ongoing struggle to reach gender balance — even within the same household,” the post continued. “I did not realize how hard it would hit many who heard it.”

Ingraham was less than impressed by the Clinton post that didn’t actually or officially apologize for the comments.

“Notice how in true Clintonian fashion she didn’t apologize for what she said,” Ingraham said. “She apologized to those of you too stupid to understand what she meant.” It may be worth noting that Trump won 30 states to Clinton’s 20; he actively campaigned in the Rust Belt and actually visited Wisconsin.

“And this tone-deaf woman is still trying to figure out what happened?” Ingraham asked. “Please.”

Ruhle’s apology was a little more authentic. Remember, the MSNBC anchor is the one who made fun of Larry Kudlow for his Catholic faith last week.

Ruhle apologized for her remarks on Twitter over the weekend.

“Kudlow didn’t even point out the inappropriate word choice,” Ingraham joked — because Ruhle wrote “believe” instead of “belief.” “We all make grammatical mistakes. But graciously, he accepted Ruhle’s apology.”

He did so on Twitter.

“And then there’s Joyless Behar,” Ingraham continued.

After Vice President Mike Pence did an interview with Sean Hannity in February in which he spoke of his relationship with Jesus, Behar — during her ABC show “The View” — called Pence’s religious views a “mental illness.”

A couple of weeks ago, Behar called Pence by phone to apologize, but Pence asked her to apologize to the rest of the Christian-majority country publicly. Last Tuesday, she finally did so on “The View.”

“I think Vice President Pence was right,” said Behar, looking extremely uncomfortable on camera. “I think I should respect everyone’s religious faith — and I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.”

“Well, good for her,” Ingraham said. “But these apologies seem to be driven by complaints sometimes rather than conscience. Each puts the intolerant Left on notice to think twice before they utter in public what they probably say about conservatives behind closed doors. The silent majority is silent no more — so be careful.”
