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, where is my call of apology? You and ABC have offended millions of people, and they demand a response. How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!

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.”
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?

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.
Brian Ross, the reporter who made a fraudulent live newscast about me that drove the Stock Market down 350 points (billions of dollars), was suspended for a month but is now back at ABC NEWS in a lower capacity. He is no longer allowed to report on Trump. Should have been fired!
