Amid Roseanne Controversy, Trump Asks Why Hasn't ABC Apologized To Me?

President Donald Trump has shown, once again, that all that matters to him is himself when he decided to make the "Roseanne" controversy all about him.

The whole controversy surrounding Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet appears to have made President Donald Trump jealous.

Now, he’s asking why, oh why, hasn't ABC apologized to him. And we are still confused.

After the White House claimed that the president was too busy with important matters to care about Barr’s tweet offending former President Barack Obama’s adviser, Valerie Jarrett, the president took to Twitter to complain and offer his two cents on the entire matter.

“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr,” he wrote on Twitter. “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?”

Jarrett was the subject of a tweet published by Barr on her account that likened her to the movie “Planet of the Apes.” After the tweet and Barr's excuses prompted Twitter users to drag her for her racism, ABC finally announced they were canceling her hit show reboot “Roseanne.”

Yet the president, who often complains about the media and not just ABC in particular, failed to mention the racist comments the network supposedly made about him. Since he could not justify his request, it’s clear he has no idea what he’s talking about.

Twitter promptly noticed and, of course, criticized him for it.

Some users even called him a narcissist.

The fact that the president would go as far as making this whole incident about him shows that he’s not in this job to help people. Quite the contrary. It's clear that all that matters to Trump is himself.

Not that we ever had any doubt about that
