CNN’s Jim Acosta shouted a question to White House press secretary Sarah Sanders after the briefing Wednesday, asking when Trump would apologize for negative comments he’s made in the past.
Sanders just kept on walking.
Acosta asked, “What are the president’s apologies for things he said over the years?” as Sanders was walking out.
This is in response to Trump tweeting Wednesday that ABC hasn’t apologized to him for negative things their employees have said about him in the past.
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?

Sanders also said at the briefing Wednesday, “Where was the apology from Bob Iger for ESPN hiring Keith Olbermann after his numerous expletive tweets attacking Trump 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.” (RELATED: Where Was The Apology For Trump? — Sarah Sanders Responds To Roseanne Question)
