Trump Blasts ABC For “Roseanne” Double Standard As Conservatives Point To Olbermann, Reid And Maher

President Trump slammed ABC in a Wednesday morning tweet after the network canceled it’s #1 rated sitcom “Roseanne” following inflammatory and racist comments made over Twitter by Roseanne Barr Tuesday night. 

“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.

The 65-year-old Barr fired off a now-deleted tweet likening Jarrett, a former advisor to President Obama, to an ape. “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj,” wrote Barr.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said the remark was “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values” in a statement accompanying the cancellation announcement, adding over Twitter: “there was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.” 

Barr, whose Godson is black, immediately apologized and subsequently blamed Ambien for her comment – only to take full responsibility for her words in subsequent comments. 

“It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible,” she wrote. “I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”

Roseanne also tweeted that billionaire financier Goerge Soros tweeted in an exchange with Chelsea Clinton “George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that?”

Soros responded in a Tuesday statement to the New York Daily News, as a spokesman said: “George Soros survived the Nazi occupation of Hungary as a 13-year-old child by going into hiding and assuming a false identity with the help of his father, who managed to save his own family and help many other Jews survive the Holocaust.” He also showed zero remorse for it in a 60 minutes interview: 

Conservatives on Twitter, meanwhile, rebuked the MSM over their decision to cancel Roseanne’s show, citing a double-standard in entertainment for conservatives, as both MSNBC’s Joy Reid and Keith Olbermann have remained employed despite provocative comments in the past.

Reid came under fire in April after it was revealed she made homophobic anti-Semitic comments on a blog she ran from 2007-2009. Reid then lied, saying her blog had been hacked – except original copies were backed up in the national archives. Reid kept her job.
