The Republican issued his apology in a almost four-minute video posted online, saying "it is not my intent to hurt anybody in this process, but to help us all move forward together".

Friday's teacher rally did result in the closure of at least 30 Kentucky school districts, including Erlanger-Elsemere Schools and Bellevue Independent Schools.

That same day, Bevin blasted the teachers for taking the day off to protest.

Bevin said his comments came from a place of concern over "unintended consequences" following the teacher protests.

Trump Declares 'Mission Accomplished' in Syria Strike
Apparently, President Donald Trump doesn't have those concerns following Friday night's military strike in Syria . Bush , who used it in 2003 during the Iraq war but which dogged him for the rest of his presidency.

Bevin apologized a number of occasions in Sunday's video and stated many individuals misunderstood and "didn't absolutely admire" his earlier assertion.

Thousands of teachers descended on the state Capitol Friday to call for more education funding and protest recent changes made to retirement benefits for current and future public workers.

The GOP-led state House approved a pair of resolutions condemning Bevin's comments Saturday.

"You know how many hundreds of thousands of children today were left home alone?"

Mo Salah has final say on his jibe at rival Harry Kane
So with six games left in the Premier League season, the race for the Golden Boot definitely seems to be going down to the wire. Jose Mourinho's men can increase that to four though if they beat West Brom at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Bevin took to social media after nationwide backlash for saying children were being sexually abused while being left alone as teachers rallied in Frankfort to urge lawmakers to override his vetoes of an operating budget. Bevin's feedback got here shortly after Republican lawmakers voted to override his vetoes of an working price range that included elevated spending for public schooling with the assistance of an accompanying tax improve.

In a video statement on Sunday, Bevin said: "I'm sorry for those of you, every single one of you, that has been hurt by things that I've said".

"And so the extent that I try this effectively, nice". And to the times when I don't do it well, that's on me. That's not much of an apology. It was nonetheless him defending his phrases. Everyone heard his words. I do not understand how we will misunderstand his intent. "His insults of teachers over the a year ago have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official". "If anyone asks me for my advice, I would say that they should come out and make a statement, either clarifying it or being apologetic and getting the statement behind them".

The Boone County Education Association in a message on its Facebook page Sunday said as part of an effort called #blackout Bevin, they supported a Black Out for Solidarity on Monday.
