Former reality show star Donald Trump on Wednesday took to his Twitter account to weigh in on ABC’s decision to cancel Roseanne Barr’s hit show over her racist tweets. But of course, Trump made it all about himself, like he always does.
“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC does not tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr,” It tweeted. “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 was not clear as to what “HORRIBLE” statements ABC has made about him unless he means the network called out his lies recently.
Barr attacked President Barack Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett. Barr compared Jarrett, who is black, to an ape and it’s not the first time she’s done that. Barr gave a weak apology after a backlash ensued but ABC wasn’t having it. Trump also didn’t immediately condemn the racism in Charlottesville in which Trump supporters marched in his name while carrying Tiki Torches and shouting Nazi-era slogans. So, Trump’s reaction to his favorite comedian getting canned comes as no surprise. He’s using that ‘both sides’ excuse again.
Roseanne also repeated an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory about George Soros. Barr accused the Hungarian-Jewish billionaire of being a Nazi collaborator. Soros is a survivor of the Holocaust and he was just a child during the Nazi-era.
