President Donald Trump once again took aim at Disney chairman Bob Iger for not calling him to apologize for alleged slights despite doing so for Valarie Jarrett earlier this week.

Iger called Jarett after ABC star Roseanne Barr’s show was canceled Tuesday when she sent a series of disparaging tweets launched at Jarrett. The tweets said Jarrett was a product of the “Muslim Brotherhood” and the movie “Planet of the Apes.”

Trump took aim at Iger yesterday and explicitly referenced this time ABCNew’s Brian Ross who falsely reported that former national security advisor Mike Flynn made contact with Russian officials during the 2016 campaign. Ross’s report caused the stock market to drop approximately 350 points and it took ABCNews hours to issue a correction.
