Rich Asshole Tries To Apologize And Makes Things Much Worse


The Young Turks

Published on Jan 30, 2014

“Tom Perkins, a founding partner of venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, over the weekend compared the current wave of ostracism towards the incredibly wealthy to attacks on Jewish people by the Nazis during World War II in a letter to the editor in The Wall Street Journal.

This, naturally, caused an Internet uproar. So today Perkins went on Bloomberg TV to apologize. Except he didn’t apologize at all — other than saying he regretted referring to the Kristallnacht, the the Nazi-organized pogrom against German Jews in 1938 that foreshadowed the Holocaust.”
