Kirsten Powers offers ‘long-winded non-apology’ on Covington & ‘toxic culture’ after Twitter hiatus. It doesn’t go over well

Kirsten Powers, a former Fox News political analyst who transformed almost overnight into a far-left zealot when she began providing commentary to CNN two years ago, permanently returned to Twitter this Monday after a roughly one month hiatus.

While she cited no specific reason for her abrupt departure last month, most assumed it was in response to the scathing backlash she received for having smeared the Covington kids.

While Powers posted a few spare tweets between Jan. 23 and Feb. 18, it wasn’t until this Monday that she returned full-time, for a lack of a better word, and began tweeting profusely again.

She marked her return with a lengthy thread in which she attempted to walk back some of her criticism of the Covington Catholic High School boys who were falsely accused by her and others in the left-wing media last month of harassing a Native American man.

Read her full thread below:

Long story short, though she still believes the Covington kids disrespected Native American man and “stolen valor” perpetrator Nathan Phillips, she admitted in her tweets she had judged the kids too harshly and that it’s not her “job” to “hold them accountable.”

Accountable for what? That remains unclear …

She also threw in the race card by alleging that black teenage boys who’re accused of misbehavior never get the “benefit of the doubt” allegedly afforded to the Covington kids.

The Covington boys — particularly Nick Sandmann, the boy seen in the video below smiling politely as Phillips rudely bangs a drum in his face — were smeared, not given the “benefit of the doubt.”



And to top it off, Powers said she’s “rethinking my view on Al Franken,” whom members of the far-left believe didn’t deserve to be booted from Congress, despite indisputable photo evidence that he once groped model and sports commentator Leeann Tweeden while she was asleep.

When the evidence surfaced two years ago, Powers rightly demanded Franken resign. But now she apparently regrets that decision. *facepalm*

Social media users weren’t even remotely impressed by her attempt at introspection. If anything, most social media users appeared to be entirely disgusted.


It’s like Powers learned nothing from her brief hiatus. But it gets worse. During an appearance early Tuesday morning on CNN, she said that she still believes the Covington kids should “be disciplined” and forced to apologize for basically doing nothing wrong:

Al Franken, on the other hand, why, he’s one of the good guys, didn’t you know!?
