As Twitchy readers know, Hillary lackey Philippe Reines tweeted an absolutely disgusting dig about Trump Jr’s wife, Vanessa; it was so disgusting that even Chelsea Clinton called him out for it.
The personal nature of this one surprised me. But then you have had to see and hear the most vile personal things said about HRC & her family by so many for so long.They can't have it both ways. But I do prefer political snark over personal. Hang in there. Get back on track.

So overnight, Reines sorta apologized for the tweet, and by sorta we mean not really.
With time to think:
• I regret the Tweet. But I wrote it, I own it. So leaving it.
• Friendlies: I’m sorry to disappoint. It’s a learning moment.
• Vanessa/Valentin: Wrong to include you
• MAGATs: Take your vitriolic hypocrisy & shove it
• Jr: You ain’t seen nothing yet https://t.co/sbO4bzAPfy

He’s just gross.
Hillary sure can pick ’em.

You’re not sorry. You’re just an asshole.

Ding ding ding.
You are not well. Get help.

There is no fixing this guy, he’s broken. Best just to throw him out and start over.
This summary is so passive agressive it fits your uncool status. Good job.

Call her and apologize to her in person. That's the least you need to do. Stop hiding behind tweets.

He won’t have the nads to call her and apologize, he’s nothing more than some Twitter tough guy looking for cheap points from idiot Liberals who hate anything and everything Trump.
So, you regret the tweet, but you don't apologize to those you insulted (by dragging sex lives into the public eye) and instead apologize to your friends?
You're a bad person.

A decent man would take it down and apologize.

We’re not exactly dealing with a decent man.
I don’t think “vile” is a strong enough word. But credit where due, at least you own being a troll.

Really disappointing. I respected your appearances on Fox as a civil yet dissenting opinion, one which gives hopes to a divided country to drop the hate and start the dialogue. I hope you change your mind about your tenor. The country needs civility among the intellectuals

When even the Democrats are calling you out, Phil … time to put the Twitter down.
