As Twitchy told you earlier, political science professor Dr. Christina Greer had some horrible comments about Mollie Tibbetts in her criticism of Fox News for putting so much focus on the University of Iowa student’s murder by a man believed to be in the country illegally. Greer referred to Tibbetts as “a girl in Iowa” in her comments slamming Fox News:
Republicans "have been so willing to move the goal post" for Trump

Greer subsequently blamed backlash on racism, but since then she has tweeted what’s supposed to be an apology or something:
Yesterday I said something flippant that was unintended. Mollie Tibbets was a promising young woman who lost her life. My hope is that her family will find peace & justice and that her murder is not used to justify a discriminatory immigration policy. #Apologiesaremyown.

The ball’s already back in Trump’s court? Some “apology”!

Um, not really.
You were more than flippant, it was heartless. Just pray you never have to go through what the Tibbetts family has. Incidentally, her name is spelled Tibbetts, not Tibbets !! You call yourself an enlightened teacher of some sort ???🤡 https://t.co/mh9uBQ5hDZ

The apology is as bad as the comment. You are a real jewel. Do you kick puppies too? https://t.co/jWk90QIgwQ

Well that's as much as an apology .. I'll just stop right there. You are the perfect example of everything that is wrong in America today. Self centered and lost. https://t.co/5XdDoZOmVA
