I’m astonished at the Polish death camps kerfuffle.
It’s one thing to misspeak. It happens. W was good for mangling words.
But to not immediately make a statement rectifying the situation is unfathomable. How hard would it be to note that the Poles were the first victims of Nazi aggression, had hundreds of thousands of their citizens shipped off to the camps, and struggled mightily for freedom from the oppression of the Nazis and later the Communists? He could have turned a stupid, but very minor, mistake into an affirmation of how much the US can admire the Polish people.
Instead, he can’t apologize for anything unless he can blame it on someone else.
