You called your father's comments on the Access Hollywood tape clearly offensive and inappropriate, and said that you were glad that he had acknowledged that and apologized. But, I'm sure you understand that many people were not just offended by the language, they were offended by the actions he was describing.

Were you?>> Way to warm up.
LAUGH]>>
Thank you, Nancy. It's lovely to be here in California. I think my remarks were clear on this front. I did find it to be offensive, he acknowledged it was as well. This tape was over a decade old.

I'm sure he didn't remember this conversation, but was very embarrassed by it. And he expressed that, not only to me personally, but to the American people. And I appreciate that he did that. I think it was very, very important for him to have done so.>> What did he say to you, father to daughter about that?

>> Well he recognizes it was crude language. He was embarrassed that he had said those things, and he apologized. That's not language consistent with any conversation I've ever had with him certainly, or any conversation that I've overheard. So it was a bit jarring for me to hear, and he was very sincere in his apology.
