"We've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this."

Maybe if he’d said, “I’m sorry that this interview is being filmed from the waist up, but it's because my pants are on fire due to all the lies that have come out of my liary liar-hole in my lying face,” I’d consider accepting it.
But hey, at least it’s a start. An apology is an apology, right? Now if only he could apologize for:
