Rachel's Tweet following Hillary's apology

Hillary Clinton Verified account 
‏@HillaryClinton
Hillary Clinton’s statement on her comments about the Reagans' record on HIV and AIDS:


Rachel Maddow MSNBC
✔ ‎‎@maddow
It's nice to get a clear, unqualified "I'm sorry" instead of the standard politician "if you felt x or misunderstood me, i'm sorry".

Thank you Rachel.. just what I've been saying all day to those who come in here to insult Hillary. She didn't make excuses or try to weasel out of it. She has extraordinary class.. exactly what it takes to be Madam POTUS~:

15. My youngest

who is a lesbian, said that people wanting to create drama from a misstatement are being dumbasses. Like she said, consider the context of WHEN. She also thinks quite highly of the immediate apology afterwards without trying to excuse it.

16. Oh thank you for that, DG.. very interesting. I was thinkinig later that Rachel is a part

of the GLBTQ community too.. so this has a more compelling significance.

The sharks just think they smell blood in the water.. but as with President Obama.. they never get to bite.

19. As a lesbian, I saw people grab this and run with it for their own agenda.

Yeaterday I was back to feeling like my life is treated as a political football. People who rarely give a thought to gay people or our issues were quick to lecture all gay people if we dared to continue supporting Hillary "after this."

I know that is how people of color are treated as well. As minorities, our issues become the football kicked around by politicians and people with other agendas.

I appreciated Hillary's apology. I appreciate the funding that Bill Clinton's administration championed for HIV research.

Oh yeah that was one of the insult memes that came into our Group today that had nothing to do with reality.

It's exactly what it takes to be a great President like Obama.. the class to apologize for your mistakes and

never make them worse by trying to weasel out of it.. it's not Presidential.

I didn't get all huffy-puffy from what Clinton said, but I'm certainly glad she corrected and apologized.

I feel this should be posted as well...

11. That's great-unfortunately I don't have as good a sense of humor about the H-H8ers as Bill Maher.

But, I agree that humor is the most subversive weapon of all. I just get tired of the Hill H8 around here.

Aren't we supposed to be against Republicans, not Democrats?

of that. You either give an apology or you try to weasel out of it.. and Rachel knows the difference.

smh @ some of these interlopers.

35. Too bad Sander's has never managed to come across as anything but a self-righteous, finger

pointing boor who thinks he is always, ALWAYS right.

The thought of someone like that as POTUS is scary.

ETA: Look up the meaning of "backpeddling". It doesn't mean what you think it means.

18. so many great endorsements

 

and stories about HRC!!
So many positives to describe her....
but nooooo! some people ignore all that and just choose to see any negative!
and try to blow it out of proportion!
Very telling! All I need to know!

with HER since 2008!!

24. families of those killed in Charleston's Church

 

were so incredibly!!! forgiving of the killer!! in the courtroom! even with their hearts broken, argh! even w/o his apology.
That was for me a lesson that turned around the whole narrative of the tragedy!

I appreciate Rachel's words. I hope we all can be our better selves. I think HRC is an example of trying to do that.

32. Yes, if you don't admit mistakes and move on you don't learn from them.

There's someone I have in mind who never admits any mistake so he doesn't learn from them.

28. Bernie Sanders, too, praised the former First Lady in a statement, calling her "exemplary."

"No matter your party or political ideology, this is a sad day for America. Nancy Reagan was an exemplary first lady," he said. "A devoted partner, she was her husband's most trusted advisor and, as such, served our country well. Even after her time in the White House, she was an outspoken advocate for stem-cell research to find a cure for Alzheimer's. Nancy Reagan had a good heart, and she will be dearly missed."

Hillary made an error, admitted it, and apologized.

yesterday, some here threw Rachel under the bus for acknowledging Hillary's apology.

I am just surprised they didn't blame Hillary for what happened at the Trump rally yesterday, of course the day is still young

I doubt any Hillary supporter would disagree. I'm glad Hillary apologized and would hope that reasonable people think that sincere apologies are a status of good character.

Yeah, the pad we've set up under the bus is turning out really nice.

I've put in track lighting, and the gameroom is going in over there. You're welcome to use it any time you want. The Sanders people keep trying to throw out Monopoly, so keep an eye on them.

At least she straightened it out right away by acknowledging it and apologizing. We don't see that much from others...even Rachel said as much.
