From The Man Who NEVER Apologizes – ‘I DEMAND An Apology!’ (TWEET)

In typical Trump fashion, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump kicked off his day with yet another round of name-calling.  His latest target was MSNBC journalist Mika Brzezinski, who he claimed was “crazy” for grilling pro-Trump Pastor Mark Burns during an interview. Trump then suggested that Brzezinski apologize.

Burns, the pro-Trump African-American Evangelical pastor and televangelist based out of South Carolina, joined Brzezinski earlier this morning at a roundtable on MSNBC’s show “Morning Joe.” Brzezinski, understandably, struggled to comprehend how any person of color could vote for Trump.

“I don’t even know what to ask, actually. I’m sorry. Your candidate is saying things that are really –“

At this point, Reverend Al Sharpton jumped in, asking:

“Is he healed? Have y’all healed him of…?”

Burns was evasive and refused to give a yes or no answer when asked whether Trump was racist or in any way responsible for America’s hostile racial climate.

“…I believe without a doubt Mr. Trump truly, truly wants to be a president for all Americans. And I know without question there has been some language that has been controversial to some Americans. But I believe we’re just really in a very racially divided country right now and I think it’s just so imperative.”

Later in the segment, Brzezinski called out Trump more directly:

“You have no idea what your words mean.”

Trump criticized the segment, confusing Brzezinski’s hard-driving attitude and no-nonsense tone as a vicious and unfair “attack.” Trump — who has previously explained that he doesn’t apologize because he’s never wrong — encouraged Brzezinski to apologize to Pastor Burns.

Earlier, this week, Trump charged that Brzezinski was:

“…off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!”

Trump later threatened to “tell the real story” about Brzezinski and her co-host, Joe Scarborough.

Trump’s relationship with the media has been particularly combative. He has insisted on apologies and retractions from multiple news outlets over the past year, including one from Liberal America.

In August of 2015, Trump ejected Univision reporter Jorge Ramos after Ramos started asking about Trump’s immigration policy:

“Sit down, you weren’t called. Go back to Univision.”

Trump has also tussled with media on the Right. In March of this year, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski forcefully grabbed Breitbart News reporter Michelle Fields, nearly toppling her, after she asked Trump a question. Lewandowski was later charged with simple battery.

Last August, Trump criticized Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for asking him about his position on women during a GOP primary debate. Trump later tweeted that Kelly was a bimbo, and said in an interview:

“Well, I just don’t respect her as a journalist. … There was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever. … She’s a lightweight.”

For Trump, the modus operandi appears to be do as he says, not as he does – because we all know that The Donald has NEVER apologized for any of the multitudinous slurs he has leveled at opponents over the years.
