Washington (CNN) – Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota didn't exactly accept an apology from Fox News' Chris Wallace following an interaction she felt was "insulting" on "Fox News Sunday."
Wallace asked Bachmann "Are you a flake?" in a Sunday interview and later apologized via web video.
"A lot of you were more than perturbed, you were upset and felt that I had been rude to her," Wallace said on his website. "And since in the end it's really all about the answers and not about the questions, I messed up, I'm sorry. I didn't mean any disrespect."
When asked about the apology on ABC, Bachmann, who will announce her presidential campaign Monday, said it is "insulting to insinuate that a candidate for president is less than serious."
"I'm a very serious individual. I have a strong background, a strong resume," Bachmann said. "Those are the small issues, I'm focused on the big ones."
