A CNN commentator said apologizing is 'what women do' after Hillary Clinton's speech



Gloria Borger, a chief CNN political analyst, said the following after Hillary Clinton's concession speech: "That's what women do. They automatically apologize right away. It's the first thing they say -- I'm sorry."

This comment was widely criticized as sexist.

The hashtag choice says a lot.

One Twitter user saw it as both "heartbreaking and reassuring."

The emojis say it all.

Others thought it wasn't up to Hillary to apologize.

But some thought it was a positive.
