Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Columnist apologizes for calling Huckabee Sanders a ‘chunky soccer mom’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A columnist is apologizing after writing an "insensitive" description of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Los Angeles Times columnist David Horsey said that critiquing Sanders' physical appearance was "insensitive" and doesn't meet the standards set by the newspaper.

"I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper," Horsey wrote in a letter attached to the revised column.

"It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description," he wrote.
