David Feherty has apologized for his column regarding his fantasy about killing Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
“This passage was a metaphor meant to describe how American troops felt about our 43rd president,” Feherty said in a statement. “In retrospect, it was inappropriate and unacceptable, and has clearly insulted Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid, and for that, I apologize. As for our troops, they know I will continue to do as much as I can for them both at home and abroad.”
He still assumes he speaks for the American troops, which is a bit of a stretch, but if this is the best we can get from him, it will serve.
I still think CBS should reconsider their contract with him. If he wants to continue making political commentary, there are plenty of other news outlets who could use a guy who thinks he speaks for people he doesn’t know.
