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:
