Kim Campbell Apologizes After Rooting For “Direct Hit” By Hurricane On Mar-a-Lago

Former PM had originally defended her Tweet.

Former Canadian PM Kim Campbell – who presided over the biggest political collapse in Canadian history – has apologized for her Tweet in which she rooted for a hurricane to directly strike Mar-a-Lago, the resort owned by US President Donald Trump.

After initially defending the Tweet, Campbell backtracked and issued an apology:

“I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago and sincerely apologize to all it offended. It was intended as sarcasm-not a serious wish of harm. Throwaway lines get a life of their own on Twitter. I shd know better. Mea culpa.”

Campbell’s Tweet had garnered international news coverage, while she received a tonne of criticism (and small amount of support) from people responding online.

Still, it was a terrible thing for a former PM to say, and it’s good that Campbell has apologized.
