Trump Attacks ABC For Defending Black Obama Aide After Roseanne Barr’s Racist Ape Tweet




President Donald Trump took to Twitter to lash out at Disney CEO Bob Iger for apologizing for actress Roseanne Barr’s racist tweets that led to the cancellation of her hit ABC show, saying the network “never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me.”

“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?” Trump tweeted on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the White House said he had more important issues to focus on.



It is unclear to which comments on ABC Trump is referring.

In a now-deleted tweet from Tuesday, Barr wrote that Jarrett, who is black, is the combination of “Planet of the Apes” and the “Muslim Brotherhood.” As a result, ABC canceled her sitcom reboot after just one season.

Barr has since apologized and asked fans not to tweet messages of support for her.



Social media users erupted in dismay after Trump defended Barr’s racist tweet by making the controversy about himself:
