Bernstein made the comment Sunday during a New York Fashion Week event.

“At a party last night, a Times reporter who does not cover Washington or politics, referred to an unfounded rumor regarding Melania Trump,” the newspaper said in a statement. “The comment was not intended to be public, but it was nonetheless completely inappropriate and should not have occurred. Editors have talked to the reporter in question about the lapse.”

How about this guy apologizing? Bro you’re not sorry. You 100% think Melania is a hooker. You hate her. You’re not sorry you said it, you’re sorry you got caught. Cliché central but it’s true. Dude was trying to impress Emily Ratajkowski with some sweet “hey I’m a NYT journalist guess what Melania is a hooker” talk, instead gets put on blast. Much deserved. Anybody who quote tweet corrects who to whom deserves bad fate.

Do these people not realize that every snide little comment like this empowers the pro-Trumpers? Empowers every argument they have against the media? It’s shocking they continue not to realize this.

Only respectable move here is to just own this. To come out and say “yep I do think Melania is a hooker, that’s why I said it.” But this whole jargon about being sorry and citing “unfounded rumors” is such crap. Zero sincerity in that.

Sad!
