[Ed. – Note: the divorced Senator Kirk is also technically a bro with no ho.]
Sen. Mark Kirk said in an interview that he regrets referring to Sen. Lindsey Graham as a “bro with no ho” but declined to clarify or further explain his controversial remark. …
Kirk (R-Ill.) made the remark about Graham during a Senate Appropriations Committee markup session on Thursday. The Huffington Post, which first reported on the comment, posted audio of the hot mic incident.
“I’ve been joking with Lindsey,” Kirk said, according to audio from the Huffington Post. “Did you see that? He’s going to have a rotating first lady. He’s a bro with no ho.”
In the interview after a long meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), the usually outspoken Kirk was mostly mum about what he’d said about Graham, a longtime bachelor with White House ambitions.
“No. No, comment,” Kirk said. Asked if he regretted the comment, Kirk responded: “I do.” …
Democrats have been making hay of the offhand remark, circulating it instantly to the media after it was made.
