Donald Trump is going to be absolutely heartbroken that his racism and bigotry have earned him a tongue lashing on Fox News, the only network that portrays him favorably.
Fox News has usually been the only mainstream network to kiss the president’s ass and push lies to make him look better, but it seems like the network has finally had it. Yesterday on The Five, Trump got the shock of his life when the show’s co-hosts directly called him out on national television for not condemning the racist tweet that actress Roseanne Barr sent out – a tweet so offensive that her show ‘Roseanne’ was canceled by ABC.
Trump has yet to address and condemn Barr’s comments. The only statement the president issued in response to the racist tweet was an attack on Disney CEO Bob Iger about his own personal issues (because of course everything is all about him). Trump tweeted yesterday:
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?
Absolutely shameful. Trump’s not getting away with this, not even on Fox News. The Five’s Geraldo Rivera responded to the president’s tweet and trashed Trump for not condemning Barr’s racist statement:
The President missed an opportunity today. Here, it would have been so easy. I mean, when I was with him, I said, ‘You need more black people around.’ I think that you have an opportunity here––just a passing phrase, you know. He could say everything he said, but start it with, ‘This is abhorrent, this is awful, I don’t condone this. As much as I like her comedy, this wasn’t funny.’ It would have been easy for him to reach out and to deny the naysayers.”
Well, we all know that Trump doesn’t think it’s abhorrent or awful, because he’s also racist!
Co-host Dana Perino also agreed with Rivera and said that Trump should have chosen to “tweet something else” instead of just “a grievance for himself.”
