CT State Rep Apologizes For Retweet Calling Gov Malloy “A Mean Mick”
And then came the non-apology apology:
“Apparently today I re-tweeted a comment authored by someone else that contained a slur against the gov. If you know me, you know that I would never use those words myself,” Klarides said. “The intent of the RT was to highlight the hypocrisy of the administration’s actions. If that author’s words caused anyone offense, then I sincerely apologize.”
See? It was just a retweet of someone else’s comment, using language she would never use. And it’s only because the guy’s a hypocrite, anyway. And if you’re offended, then I’m sorry. Otherwise, not so much. What State Rep Themis Karides left out of her “apology” was that she added “hahaha” to the original tweet:
“Hahaha RT @CTIronman: @RepTKlarides @gideonstrumpet Remember Malloy’s TV ad? He conflates hyperactivity with effectiveness. And now we have one mean Mick, too :(
So, no, she would never use language like that, just egg on those who do.Click here for reuse options!
