Pelosi aide apologizes after accusing Ryan of cursing reporters

Source: The Hill

A top aide to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) apologized to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday after wrongly alleging that the Speaker had cursed reporters on a hot mic for being a “waste my f---ing time.”

Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, tweeted a video of Ryan leaving a press conference on Capitol Hill. After Ryan falls off screen in the video, a voice can be heard venting frustration with the proceedings.

Hammill tweeted the video claiming it was Ryan who made the incendiary remark. The video quickly spread across social media.

Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong ripped Hammill over Twitter, saying it was clear from the video that Ryan was not the person who made the offending remark.

10. I dont know if they will ever learn

That this is a war.

You have to take into consideration of how an apology will be taken by those you apologize to. Deplorables, like all bullies, will always take an apology as an admission of weakness. As will the Drumpf himself. And thus an opening to push you into the locker deeper and laugh louder. They did that all through Obama's term.

I don't know if they will ever catch on, like Charlie Brown trying to kick the ball from Lucy, Dems continually act as though they are living in some alternate past reality where they believe even Republicans deep down only want the best for everyone and have some sense of dignity to respect.
