Charles Krauthammer Reacts to White House Apology
The White House communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, has apologized to Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer for criticizing his column which described the removal of a bust of Winston Churchill in the White House.
Pfeiffer wrote, in part, on the White House website: “I take your criticism seriously and you are correct that you are owed an apology. There was clearly an internal confusion about the two busts and there was no intention to deceive.”
On Special Report, Krauthammer reacted to the apology saying, “Well I must say it’s a gracious apology. I was stunned; I didn’t expect it to happen. I actually wrote in my column that I thought the Nationals would win the World Series before I’d see an apology, so now I suppose the Nationals are going to win the World Series. But it’s a gracious apology, they’re still clinging to a tiny point on this, but the argument is over and I appreciate the correction and retraction.”
