Up To Eleven: President Trump Demands An Apology From Disney CEO Iger For The ABC Fiasco

“President Trump has unleashed a more damning tweet this morning, demanding an apology from…”

Editor’s Note: Here’s the updated sequence of events. Half Dollar is still waiting and still calling that the show “Roseanne” will be re-instated. We’ll see. At any rate, in chronological order:


From Zero Hedge:

Following on from his tweet yesterday, accusing ABC of a double standard in its decision to cancel the hit sitcom ‘Roseanne’ – after Roseanne Barr, who is a vocal Trump supporter, came under fire for a racist tweet she sent earlier in the week – where he exclaimed, “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?”

President Trump has unleashed a more damning tweet this morning, demanding an apology from the Disney CEO: “Iger, where is my call of apology? You and ABC have offended millions of people…” and recalling more of the one of the biggest fake news stories of his presidency“How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!”

As The Hill reports, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that “nobody is defending her comments,” which she called “inappropriate.”

But she said Trump is frustrated by a “double standard” in the media.

She rattled off a list of grievances with Disney, which is the parent company of ABC and ESPN, citing anti-Trump comments made by personalities such as Jemele Hill, Keith Olbermann, Joy Behar and Kathy Griffin.

“The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that [sic] the most horrible thing about this president and nobody addresses it,” Sanders said.

Hill was suspended by ESPN in part due to her tweets calling Trump a “white supremacist” and Griffin was fired by CNN, which is not affiliated with Disney, for tweeting a gruesome image of Trump.
