That backlash came the same day President Donald Trump remarked
on Twitter that "Morning Joe" co-host Mika Brzezinski had been
"bleeding badly from a face-lift" at a 2015 social gathering.
A remorse-free Trump sent his talking heads on news networks to
champion his punch-back mentality. White House deputy press
secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the president's face-lift
comments, saying, "Look, the American people elected a fighter.
They didn't elect somebody to sit back and do nothing."
When Trump gets punched, he punches back "ten times harder," his
said last April. (Ever the multitasker, Melania was also last
seen preparing a campaign against cyber-bullying.)
The Jenner sisters, however, issued an apology — their
first of the year, despite spending a good portion of their spring
fighting off various PR fiascos: the Pepsi
ad, promoting the phony
Fyre Festival, a personal sex-life post
Kylie took to Twitter to issue a statement on the T-shirt
incident, noting that she and her sister "deeply apologize to
anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the
families of the artists."
This was a departure, though: where the Jenners generally ignore
controversy, Trump dives in head-first. His go-to move is
criticizing the media for spinning his words, and the result is an
endless news cycle of verbal punches. (Will it ever end? Please,
let it end.)
But apologies are also rare from the Jenners. And so, the
numbers are in and it's official: With a total of one apology in
2017, the Jenner sisters are more contrite than the president of
the United States.
Here's a side-by-side look at how they handle crises:
Controversial move: Trump fires FBI Director James
Non-apology: Trump tweets that Comey better hope there are
no "tapes," thus beginning a wild goose chase that led to Comey
publicly testifying before the Senate.
Controversial move: Kendall was heavily criticized on
social media this spring when she posted an Instagram promoting the
Fyre Festival, a luxury event-turned-disaster.
Non-apology: The 21-year-old supermodel responded by
staying quiet, ignoring the noise and posting online a topless
