Default Donald Trump Offers The Most Unenthusiastic Apology For Racist Retweets

“Here’s what’s fair. If you’re telling me they’re horrible, racist people I would certainly apologize, if you’d like me to do that," Trump told Piers Morgan.

Oh and someone needs to define apology for Piers Morgan. Clearly he missed the day they covered that in school.

I rather doubt this is going to come as a shock to anyone at this point.

(*It would have been more of a shock if he'd actually apologized.)

That didn't even rise to notpology level, much less count as an apology.

Trump should be encouraged to walk through the streets of Paris while holding a jar of Nutella.

Why would you want to do that to a perfectly innocent Rhino?

For those in the USA who may be lacking the context to understand Piers Morgan, he went over there because he was already thoroughly disgraced, discredited and disliked over here. As far as I gather, he managed to do the same thing again over in the USA, and came back here again.

I'm not sure what he's up to at the moment - but if he's popular (as in attracting audiences), which it seems he may be, at least part of it must surely be morbid fascination rather than agreement.

Well, as rhinos are herbivores, there's no chance that it will accidentally try to eat him, and I'm pretty sure we can prove that it was self-defense.

Yeah, a nonpology is more along the lines of “I’m sorry if my remarks offended you.” Trump can’t even manage that.

Yeah, rhinos deal with enough crap, thanks to jerks believing that their horns are magical cure-alls, even though they’d get the same effect if they ground up their toenails and ate them, because that’s what rhino horns are made of: the same thing as your toenails.

How about hippos? Everything I’ve heard and read about them, is that they are freaking nightmares, willing to eff up anyone who looks at them funny. They are big and almost roly-poly in appearance, but they can move scarily fast. Yet despite their massive teeth and miles-wide aggression streak, they’re actually herbivores, which makes their horrific violence somehow even worse. At least when lions eat you, it’s out of a desire for sustenance. The only way hippos could be even bigger assholes would be if they teabagged you as you bled out.

How about this? Not only is Trump standing close, he's shaking his hand.

If you don't know who they are or what they stand for, maybe don't retweet them.
