He’s apologized for it. It seems to me we should move on,” the former mayor said.
No, that wasn’t an apology. That was a statement prepared by his staff that he read at their command, and probably only on the condition that some Hillary-bashing was added to it.
A real apology is done with the apologist’s own words. From the heart, and delivered with sincerity.
A real apology isn’t read from a teleprompter.
A real apology is delivered while making eye contact with the person or audience being apologized to.
A real apology acknowledges the wrongdoing in a way that convinces the audience that the apologist understands why what he did was hurtful.
A real apology shows humility and contrition.
A real apology doesn’t blame others or declare “She did it, too!”’
