I’ve never said I’m a perfect person, nor pretended to be someone that I’m not. I’ve said and done things I regret, and the words released today on this more than a decade-old video are one of them. Anyone who knows me, know these words don’t reflect who I am.
I said it, it was wrong, and I apologize.
I’ve travelled the country talking about change for America. But my travels have also changed me. I’ve spent time with grieving mothers who’ve lost their children, laid off workers whose jobs have gone to other countries, and people from all walks of life who just want a better future. I have gotten to know the great people of our country, and I’ve been humbled by the faith they’ve placed in me. I pledge to be a better man tomorrow, and will never, ever let you down.
Let’s be honest. We’re living in the real world. This is nothing more than a distraction from the important issues we are facing today. We are losing our jobs, we are less safe than we were 8 years ago and Washington is broken.
Hillary Clinton, and her kind, have run our country into the ground.
I’ve said some foolish things, but there is a big difference between words and actions. Bill Clinton has actually abused women and Hillary has bullied, attacked, shamed and intimidated his victims. We will discuss this more in the coming days.
Even when they have it 100% correct, the solution is so off base. Sexism in Hollywood is as rampant as Ageism. The remedy is NOT hiding your age; the remedy is to get the Liberal Minded Hollywood Producers to publish 100% of the salaries paid for everyone in a movie. So no surprises, and no acting if you don’t have equal pay for equal work.
Where is the Liberal, Progressive Capital of the West? Why is there pay inequity in Hollywood – bastion of egalitarianism? Or, are we finding out that Liberal Progressive Egalitarians are some more of the “Do as I say, not as I do crowd?”
My thinking was that only important political news was "possibly" scripted since many of the same words were used. However, in this montage, even the humdrum news has a "nation-wide" script to overly manage the message... Really???!!!??? is that necessary?
Not uncommon for the news media to cut segments to the bare minimum. However, the meaningful content should remain. Professional standards of News gathering and reporting must be upheld. CBS has done neither in this case. They took out a Freudian slip, not because it was meaningless, but because it raised more questions.
