Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Sunday stuck by her comparison of the national debt to slavery, but added that she accepts the apology from MSNBC host Martin Bashir, reports TheWrap.com.
“The definition of slavery is to be beholden to a master, and we will be beholden when that note is due,” Palin said during a “Fox News Sunday” appearance.
As previously reported, Bashir apologized after implying in a commentary that Palin deserved to have someone "shit" in her mouth. He made the comment in response to Palin’s earlier remark that U.S. debt to China would result in a “slavery” situation.
On Sunday, Palin said, “Who am I to not accept an apology?” She added, “Everyone must humble themselves and accept that offer of apology. But next time they want to say such a thing and then get the attention they were seeking after they said it, and then they want to call and apologize to me in private? I’d like them to go through Todd first, or one of my children first. Leave a message with them. Hear what they have to say about it. And then they can come to me.”
