Former attorney general Eric Holder decided MSNBC host Joy Reid’s non-apology apology for her past blog posts was gush-worthy.

So he gushed.

If you missed her attempted explanation, which it very much seems that Holder did, Reid still claims that she cannot recall making the posts. She said the posts were “completely alien” to her.

What does Eric Holder take from that fauxpology that would give him the impression that she’s being either heartfelt or appropriate?
