Per my local newspaper (I live in Washington), this is the only thing she had to say about her statement of 'nurses probably play cards', and is currently her only publicly released statement:

“I was tired,” she said. “I said something I wish I hadn’t.”

I bet her lunch break got interrupted that day, guys, let's not be so hard on her. (Sike, if I can keep myself from screaming bloody murder at people for twelve hours when I'm tired, she could have kept that snide comment to herself.)

My thoughts exactly. This wasn't apologetic. 

She's not upset about what she said, she just wishes she would have kept it to herself.

This beats Joy Behar's ridiculous statements about nurses hands-down. I'll just bet Senator Walsh wishes she'd kept her mouth shut...she is never going to hear the end of this. Nor should she. In only a few short words, she managed to insult three million nurses and the people who care about us. I hope she never lives it down.

I find it incredibly ironic that the excuse she gave for her statement is that she was “tired”. 🤨

That is definitely not an apology. But did we really expect one? She said what she was thinking, and you know how the filter slips when you're tired (if you have a filter to start with, haha).

Gosh, if only she was allowed rest and meal breaks, she wouldn't be so tired. Good thing she isn't actually responsible for people's lives.

Uh huh.  Yeah.  To paraphrase:  "I was tired.  And I did something I shouldn't.  Too bad the patient died."

Oh, well.  Whose turn to deal?

Open mouth. Insert foot. Remove. Repeat PRN/as often as desired. 🤭
