Erin Burnett Apologizes, Wishes Bush a Great Weekend

burnettap.jpgIt looks like Monkey-gate may be over. Earlier this week, Erin Burnett raised some eyebrows as she flippantly referred to President Bush as a “monkey” during Monday’s broadcast of Morning Joe. The video on YouTube has over 60,000 views.

Today, on Hardball, she apologized to President Bush. “Earlier this week I was on MSNBC, on Morning Joe, and I made a bad attempt at humor…I said something stupid, I just want to make sure I apologize if I offended anyone. I do have the upmost respect for the President, I hope he has a great weekend, and Chris, I hope you do too,” Burnett said.
