Blanket Statement Not Accepted

Trump’s blonde mouthpiece,  Kellyanne Conway, was on a recent talk show and one subject of conversation was his statement of regret. Her interviewer was trying to get her to be specific about something he regretted doing. She hung tough and just kept coming back with a blanket statement of regret.

It reminded me of when I was a kid growing up Catholic. I hated going to confession and having to rat myself out for all the sins I had committed since my last confession. I also tried to get the priest to accept a blanket statement, “Father, I am sorry for all the sins I have created in the past and for those I will commit in the future.”
I don’t know if I ever floated that one through the confessional but most of the times it was tossed back and I had to be specific.
