>> The Trump White House weighing in on the public outcry over a racist tweet by comedienne Rosanne Barr, but failing to criticize the post that led to the swift cancellation of her ABC show. On Thursday, President Trump attacked the CEO of ABC's parent company Disney, Bob Iger, again saying quote, Iger, where is my call of apology?
You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response. How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard! Trump's referring to a report late last year by ABC News reporter, Brian Ross, that incorrectly claimed Trump had asked Michael Flynn to make contact with the Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.
ABC did apologize for the report, and suspended Ross. The president's latest tweet comes a day after he ripped into Iger for apologizing to Valerie Jarrett, the black former aide to President Obama targeted in Barr's racist tweet. White House spokeswoman Sarah Saunders defended the President.>> The President is simply calling out the media bias.
No one's defending what she said.>> While Barr apologized to Jarrett for making a bad joke when she compared her to an ape, on Wednesday, the comedian went on another tweeting spree, posting that she did not know Jarrett was black. The 65 year old comedian initially blamed her explosively late night tweet, on the sleep aid Ambien.
Parent company Sanofi responded Wednesday by saying, quote, while all pharmaceutical treatments has side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication
