Analysis of Rosie O’Donnell’s tweet where she allegedly apologized to Melania for asking if Baron was autistic, showed insincerity and embarrassment at all the backlash she received. O’Donnell wrote the following tweet:
“I apologize to @MELANIATRUMP – i was insensitive in my RT – i am sorry for the pain i caused – it was not my intent – i am truly sorry.”
Look at the i’s. She begins it with a capital I but in three other places she uses the small “i” indicating that she is embarrassed and ashamed. It shows a lack of self confidence in her statement. But in my view, she is embarrassed not by what she said, but embarrassed because she got caught and the backlash was so strong against her. People who were even her fans let her have it for calling out her nemesis’ 10 year old son as being autistic.
As further indication of her embarrassment, she got rid of her twitter account to the public and made it private. that is a huge indication that she is retreating in shame from the public who lambasted her.
When she says she was insensitive in her RT (retweet) she is attempting to share the blame in stating that it wasn’t really her fault because she just tweeted what someone else tweeted in the first place. Also the use of the word “insensitive” shows insincerity. Had she said I was “wrong” it my retweet it would have been a stronger more real apology.
She said I am sorry for the pain I caused. What about saying that she is sorry for tweeting misinformation. In saying this she is making it about her -and showing how she things she has so much power to cause another pain. If she was truly sincere she would have said I am sorry “you were hurt.” It makes you wonder if she did indeed enjoy causing that pain. After all, she despises Trump. So anything to hurt him- like hurting his wife and his son would certainly not cause her to feel sorry. She also doesn’t say she was in pain for hurting Melania.
Also there is too much repetition of the same phrases and same theme ie. “I apologize”, “i am sorry” “i am truly sorry”which smacks of deception. The word “truly” means just the opposite here.There is too much information and the adjective reflects that she is trying too hard to convince Melania how sorry she is.
The most telling tell of all is that she did not even mention Baron. He is the one that really deserves her apology.
