Trump has somehow made the Roseanne scandal about himself

President Trump is apparently feeling rather excluded in the wake of the scandal over Roseanne Barr's viciously racist tweet about former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett, who is black. On Wednesday, the president took to Twitter to complain that Disney CEO Bob Iger had called Jarrett to apologize for Barr's comments, but "he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC."

Notably, the difference is that when Iger allegedly told Jarrett that "ABC does not tolerate comments like those," he was referring to ones that are openly racist and Islamophobic.
