With all the divisiveness surrounding Donald Trump’s presidency so far, the crew at Fox & Friends thinks it’s time for liberals to apologize for being so mean to other people whom they disagree with politically.
To help them do this, it invited pyschotherapist Tom Kersting onto the program to offer tips for saying you’re sorry when you’ve hurt someone’s feelings during a political argument.
“‘I’m sorry’ might be the two most difficult words in the English language for people to say,” Kersting explained. “It’s so critical, as a human being, to take ownership for the things we’ve done to other people.”
Kersting then went on to say that he is shocked by the mean things people say to one another on social media platforms, which he said were indications of a person’s “lack of emotional intelligence, emotional regulation, and the ability to empathize with other people.”
Kersting’s comments about apologizing for saying cruel things to other people on social media are interesting, since President Donald Trump rose to prominence in the political world in part thanks to his attacks against other people on Twitter, and for his refusal to ever apologize for any of them.

Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’
President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.
And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.
But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.
Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:
McConnell warns Trump not to pass a stimulus deal before the election: report
According to a report from the Washington Post, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told fellow Republicans this Tuesday that he warned the White House not to make a stimulus deal with Democrats before the election.
"McConnell suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is not negotiating in good faith with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, and any deal they reach could disrupt the Senate’s plans to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court next week," the Post reports.
As the Post points out, McConnell's stance risks dashing any hopes that a stimulus deal would be passed before November 3rd.
