New York Times Reporter Who Called Melania A “Hooker” Is Son Of Watergate Journalist

The NY Times reporter who called First Lady Melania Trump “a hooker” has finally revealed himself.

Hollywood Reporter reports:

The comment became public knowledge on Monday after supermodel Emily Ratajkowski stated that she heard what was said and was outraged over it.

New York Times reporter Jacob Bernstein apologized on Tuesday for saying in a private conversation that Melania Trump was a “hooker.” 

“I want to take ownership of a mistake I made. Speaking at a party in what I thought was a personal conversation, I nevertheless made a stupid remark about the first lady,” Bernstein wrote on Twitter.

He added: “My editors have made it clear my behavior was not in keeping with the standards of the Times, and I agree. My mistake, referring to unfounded rumors, shouldn’t reflect on anyone else and I apologize profusely.”

Bernstein, a features writer at the Times and the son of Nora Ephron and journalist Carl Bernstein, made the comment on Sunday during a New York Fashion Week event.

He’s the son of Watergate investigator and CNN contributor Carl Bernstein!

One commentator said Jared Bernstein is only sorry he got caught:

Boom!
