New York Times Reporter Apologizes for Calling Melania Trump a ‘Hooker’

Jacob Bernstein says he “made a stupid remark about the first lady”
The New York Times reporter who called Melania Trump a “hooker” at a private event on Sunday has apologized, saying he wants to “take ownership of a mistake” he made.
Jacob Bernstein, the son of Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein and the late writer-director Nora Ephron, came forward on Tuesday to identify himself as the journalist who repeated what he called “unfounded rumors” about the first lady in a conversation with model-actress Emily Ratajkowski.
“Speaking at a party in what I thought was a personal conversation, I nevertheless made a stupid remark about the first lady,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “My editors have made it clear my behavior was not in keeping with the standards of the Times, and I agree.”
