The controversy: The Fox News contributor shockingly joked about killing President Obama and then laughed. “Now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, uh Obama. Well, both, if we could,” she said.

The backlash: Trotta returned the next day with an apology, saying:

I am so sorry about what happened yesterday and the lame attempt at humor. I fell all over myself, making it appear that I wished Barack Obama harm or any other candidate, for that matter, and I sincerely regret it and apologize to anybody I have offended. It is a very colorful political season and many of us are making mistakes and saying things we wish we had not said.
