About the Controversial Recording –
“When I listen to that tape – I don’t even know how I can say words like that. I don’t know why the girl had me say those things.”
Anderson Cooper asked – “You’re saying you were set up?”
“Well yes – I was baited. I mean, that’s not the way I talk. I don’t talk about people for one thing, ever. I talk about ideas and other things. I don’t talk about people.”
“I’m not a racist. I made a terrible, terrible mistake and I’m here with you today to apologize and to ask for forgiveness for all the people that I’ve hurt.”
“An 80-year-old man is kind of foolish and I’m kind of foolish. I thought she liked me and really cared for me. I guess being 51 years older than her – I was deluding myself.”
Donald Sterling also said it took him so long to apologize because he was “emotionally distraught.”
Should Donald Sterling be forgiven?
