Tyler made his debut on “Meet The Press Daily” on Friday where he spoke out for the first time about his firing, expressing regret for an “error” in judgement before being let go from the campaign.

“I’m not mad about it. I’m fine with it,” Tyler said of the political fallout during an interview with Chuck Todd.
