President Trump Calls Langer To Apologize For Friend Of A Friend Of A Friend Of A Friend Caper

Craig Dolch quotes Bernhard Langer at length, who says President Donald Trump called to apologize for using an analogy about possible voter fraud.

The President also apologized for whatever grief he may have caused the multiple Charles Schwab Cup-winner.

“We talked on the phone, and he was very clear … if there was anything that hurt me, he apologized,” Langer said during a press conference at the Allianz Championship. “And I apologized, too, for some of the quotes that were incorrect and we're on good terms.

In clarifying, Langer noted that the story he relayed went through even more layers than previously realized. Friend of a friend of a friend of a friend layers...

“I didn't say anything to the president,” Langer said Thursday. “We never talked. I told a story to a friend and the friend told a story to another friend and another friend and another friend. Somewhere down the line six people later somebody knew somebody at the White House and that's how it went, OK?"

Langer goes on to take issue with how the New York Times quoted his daughter, who answered a reporter's call and represented her father on the record.
