On the February 8 edition of MSNBC's Tucker, correspondent David Shuster addressed earlier comments he made about Chelsea Clinton, for which he was suspended by NBC.

From the February 8 edition of MSNBC's Tucker:

NORAH O'DONNELL (guest host): But we begin with MSNBC's David Shuster, who has a comment about something he said on this show last night.

SHUSTER: Last night during the show, I spoke about Chelsea Clinton and noted the affection that so many of us have for her. I also spoke about phone calls she has made to super delegates to convince them to support her mom. In describing this effort, I used a phrase that was inappropriate, and I apologize to the Clinton family, the Clinton campaign, and all of you who were justifiably offended. As I said this morning on MSNBC, all Americans should be proud of Chelsea Clinton, and I am particularly sorry that my language diminished the regard and respect she has earned from all of us and the respect her parents have earned in how they raised her.
