Felger is apologizing for saying:
“He’s not a militarily-trained pilot, he’s not a professionally-trained pilot, he’s a Joe Q Citizen who buys a plane that folds up and you can put in your garage and that’s amphibious,” said Felger. “‘Wheee! Oh look, I just landed on the water, everybody! I’m going to tweet it!’ Splat. You’re dead. With two kids. Moron.”
The radio host received a ton of backlash, prompting the apology.
