"You know, a lot of people were offended and angry that I used an epithet to describe the president's daughter and adviser last week. It is a word I have used on the show many times hoping to reclaim it. This time I used it as an insult. I crossed the line, I regret it and I do apologize for that," she began. "The problem is that many women have heard that word at the worst moments of their lives. A lot of them don't want that word reclaimed, they want it gone. And I don't blame them. I don't want to inflict more pain on them."
"I want this show to be challenging and I want it to be honest, but I never intended it to hurt anyone," she said. "Except Ted Cruz."
And she had one more zinger in store.
"Many men were also offended by my use of the word," she said, pausing. "I do not care about that."
