Now that you realize that there was no apology tour you must quit repeating that lie. Or you are lying. I almost never do this moral equivalence thing but didn't Trump compare us to Russia and Putin saying we kill people too, sometimes the hypocrisy is just too rich not to mention.

Taken as a simple statement, no this is not apologizing. However, put into the context of the speech being given, this is a clear cut apology to the European leaders that he admired and wanted to be liked by. He was disparaging this country to show that he was a new kind of leader that would be more in line with European values and policies unlike those old, outdated American values displayed by previous administrations.

Once again, context matters. To deny that Obama was apologizing for America, is disingenuous and revisionist.

I am not defending Trump and I certainly am not condoning any of his behavior, as I have stated that he is childish and immature in many of his actions. But the level of disdain for the man so far goes far beyond what is deserved. I find it interesting that those most vocal about Trump remain some of Obama's staunchest defenders, blatantly ignoring his kowtowing to foreign leaders and openly showing his disdain for America and it's values.

If it was so "disingenuous and revisionist"surely you should have some proof of what country's BO apologized to.

This is another case of something that has been repeated so often, they truly believe it, yet they know it is not true. Years in the Right Wing Noise Machine does that too you. I am serious, the RWers listen to the same information loop over and over and over in the 24/7 world of Fox News and the internet and many have completely brainwashed themselves. I think Trump literally stepped out of this machine with his birther talk and politically incorrect spiel and they think it is the messiah.

Yeah nowhere did he infer or imply any of what you wrote lol. And still nothing resembling an apology.

Also, what did he say right after that part in the speech?

After all of this these right wingers will continue their mantra about Obama and never label Trump. This is why I see racism.

It has nothing to do with racism, you dolt.

It is ALL ABOUT IDEOLOGY get it?

This is why we kicked the left wing but good, and will continue to do so in the future as far as the eye can see.

Until you figure this out your a nothing, tits on a boar hog.
