Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley apologized “like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby” for his remark that “all lives matter,” Donald Trump said in an excerpt of a new interview aired Friday on Fox News.
In an interview with Jeanine Pirro for her program “Justice” set to air Saturday night, Trump said that the former Maryland governor did not need to say he was sorry.
“And then he apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby. And that’s the problem with our country,” Trump said, according to a clip aired on “Fox and Friends.”
O’Malley, in fact was “politically incorrect” with his apology, Trump remarked.
“How can you apologize when you say black lives matter — which is true — white lives matter, which is true — all lives [matter] — which is true. And then they get angry because you said white and all…we don’t want you to mention that. What’s he need to apologize for?” Trump asked.
O’Malley’s apology came last month after he responded to protesters shouting “black lives matter” during his speech at Netroots Nation by saying that, “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.” Critics on the left said the remarks showed a lack of understanding of what the Black Lives Matter movement is all about.
