The president's simply calling out the media bias. No one's defending what she said. He's simply pointing out the bias. The president's pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that the most horrible things about this president and nobody addresses it. Where was Bob Iger's apology to the White House staff.
For Jemele Hill calling the president and anyone associated with him a white supremacist, to Christians around the world. For Joy Behar calling Christianity a mental illness. Where was the apology for Kathy Griffin going on a profane rant against the president on The View after a photo showed her holding President Trump's decapitated head and where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive-laced tweets attacking the president as a Nazi and even expanding Olbermann's role after that attack against the president's family.
This is a double standard that the president is speaking about. No one is defending our comments. They're inappropriate, but that's the point that he was making.
