Hillary Clinton Aide Apologizes for Using F-Word

An e-mail exchange between Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines and Buzzfeed's Michael Hastings turned testy last week when the reporter demanded non-"bullshit" answers, and Reines punched back with a "Fuck off" and "Have a good life." Reines has since said sorry, Politico reports: "No matter how strongly you feel about something, there's a way to make a point," he said. "That wasn't it, and I apologized to him for that." Hastings was needling Clinton's right-hand man over the State Department beef with CNN for using the found diary of late Libya ambassador Christopher Stevens. Clinton, we imagine, responded to the bad press with a lecture about presidential language and may or may not have made Reines contribute to the swear jar, the contents of which could go toward 2016.
