Trump Demands Apology From Disney's Iger For "Offending Millions Of People"

Following on from his tweet yesterday, accusing ABC of a double standard in its decision to cancel the hit sitcom 'Roseanne' - after Roseanne Barr, who is a vocal Trump supporter, came under fire for a racist tweet she sent earlier in the week - where he exclaimed, “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?”

President Trump has unleashed a more damning tweet this morning, demanding an apology from the Disney CEO: "Iger, where is my call of apology? You and ABC have offended millions of people..." and recalling more of the one of the biggest fake news stories of his presidency: "How is Brian Ross doing? He tanked the market with an ABC lie, yet no apology. Double Standard!"

As The Hill reports, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that “nobody is defending her comments,” which she called “inappropriate.”

But she said Trump is frustrated by a “double standard” in the media.

She rattled off a list of grievances with Disney, which is the parent company of ABC and ESPN, citing anti-Trump comments made by personalities such as Jemele Hill, Keith Olbermann, Joy Behar and Kathy Griffin.

“The president is pointing to the hypocrisy in the media, saying that [sic] the most horrible thing about this president and nobody addresses it,” Sanders said.

Hill was suspended by ESPN in part due to her tweets calling Trump a "white supremacist" and Griffin was fired by CNN, which is not affiliated with Disney, for tweeting a gruesome image of Trump.

Dems are the most racist motherfuckers on the planet. Everything about a person is compartmentalized to race, religion and sexual orientation. Dems are the party of the KKK....always deducing folks to a foul nomenclature like “super predators”. 

 

StinkyDinky, the race baiting, name calling, no-platform ineptitude of the MS-13 loving Dems is failing. Less time posting here and more time reforming the party. I was espoused to them 10 years ago when they were pro-middle class and anti-war. That’s gone. Marxists will be crushed.

That’s what’s so funny. This shit is starting to back fire on them via the way back machine of the inter webs.

 

THEY. KEEP. DOUBLING. DOWN. 

If they didn’t have the shitty edifice of the lying media in their pocket they’d be on par with Green Party status.

To understand the leftist Democrats, you have to know their origins. They come from the Mensheviks, who broke from the Bolsheviks after Lenin's death, when the Jews were no longer allowed to openly flaunt their more equal animals status under communism, as they had before.

Meanwhile, the neocons which make up the GOPe are all ideologically descended from the Trotskyites.

Small wonder that all of Vichy DC hates the fuck out of ordinary middle class America. Both parties are controlled by outright Marxists.

~43% Vote Democrat.

~43% Vote Republican.

~4% Vote for someone with no chance of winning.

~10% pick the winner between the D and the R.

 

That is reality folks.

 

The Leftist media can lie and propagandize all they want...they still won't move the needle much past 43% because 57% of the voters are not Democrat cult members.

If we had a straight up "most votes wins" system, then the media would be more effective...but our electoral system works exactly as the founders intended; dampening the danger of "Group Think" in dense population centers deciding elections.

Wikileaks (bless em!) dropped some Jarrett files in support of Roseanne. Not sure if they are new or just a collection from the Pedosta dump etc, but it only takes a couple of minutes to dig out a gem. One of so many Assange has delivered that rarely see the full light of day - I think its just down to the volume of shit being so great to wade through, it all becomes a blur.

 

Remember all the fucking credit that half-white halfwit took for waxing Osama?

 

A clip from this leak - compelling reading.

From: burton@stratfor.com
Date: May 6, 2011 10:49:10 AM CDT
To: "Tactical" <tactical@stratfor.com>
Subject: [TACTICAL] Fw: an interesting read

 

"What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had
already initiated a program that reported to him *and only him, involving a
covert on the ground attack against the compound."

Note:This update comes some 24 hours after our longtime Washington D.C.
Insider first outlined shocking details of an Obama administration
having been *overruled* by senior military and intelligence officials
leading up to the successful attack against terrorist Osama Bin Laden.
What follows is further clarification of Insider*s insights surrounding
that event.

Q: You stated that President Obama was *overruled* by
military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in
military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that
accurate?

A: I was told * in these exact terms, *we overruled him.* (Obama) I
have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that
meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the
president*s *persistent hesitation to act.* There appears NOT to have
been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama,
simply because there was no specific position from the president to do
so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an
absentee president.

 

 

Cunt.

 

 

<edit> Oops. The Wiki Jarrett files.

I doubt it was on purpose but you raise a great point; she’s not a conservative. Not even in the ballpark. The redneck right fell for it hook, line and sinker and their the ones with as much egg on their faces as Barr.

The race baiters hit the lotto with this and the right has no one to blame but themselves. You are Barr, Barr is you. Case closed.

 

She punked you bitches and now you look worse than ever and.....you idiots still keep doubling down with the “it’s not fair” “ABC is full of hypocrites” attitude. Even your orange messiah is making you look worse.

If that’s who you are, someone stupid enough to fall for Barr, then fuck you. This is why you lose. This is why you’re fucked.

The "Electoral System" our Founders put in place is the Checks and Balances which have mitigated the threat of the BLUE cities, with their taxpayer subsidized population of estimated Ten plus million Illegal aliens from destroying whats left of the old American Dream our Founder's bled for. Trump should build the wall and end Mexico's plan B welfare system we US taxpayers have been paying for. Bonuses  would accrue to both US and Mexico by voiding the Clintonistas NAFTA/Bankster Trade deal...the poison which disenfranchised millions of small mexican farmers and killed thousands of US manufacturing businesses. Don't hold your breath for the presstitutes to illuminate the truth.

I wont argue with your statistics, but the real name of the game is turnout. 

 

If 1/2 Democrats stay home and watch idiot TV and 1/4 of the Republicans decide to go duck hunting, that skews the stats.  However if those fractions are reversed then the GOP has problems. 

It's all TURNOUT!

Oft quoted on ZH. Along with Voltaire's about whom you are not allowed to criticize.

But you're not new here.

What I don't get is that no one cares about non voting. It has zero impact. They would make up numbers or not disclose actual integers, instead using percentages to conceal non voting.

Now, if at least the Primaries had a "None of the Above" option then there would be a visible statement. Therefore that option is not allowed. We get one shot at each vote. A few primaries and the two front runners are already decided.

But let's complain about the Electoral College, right?

In the USA citizens get to choose which of the two approved candidates will be the front man for the next four years. And we were told elections in USSR were rigged.

The Dems have plenty of useful idiots to make up for anyone not voting in protest.

The Reps believe in the system as the propaganda describes it and will continue to vote. Except when it's a choice of Romney vs. Obama. Then the non GOP voters got blamed for four more years of Zero.

The wealthy elite make up the bulk of campaign money, so not funding the national committees won't work.

"Pull it!"

But the Dems are the current home of the new Marxists who want to control language itself -- like OneStinkyDinky applying hyper-sensitive new definitions to words like "racist."  Waa, waa, waa -- you offended me by expressing yourself.  Good, f%ck off.

I actually used to work at Mauschwitz (Disney) - internally, it's a hell-hole.  The SJW/PC/Feminist/Anti-male/Anti-white/Anti-Family garbage they push on employees is what caused me to quit.  Disney is a propaganda mill aimed at children - period.  Walt hated the "International Jews" - just like Henry Ford did (for good reasons) - so they made it their mission to take over his creation and turn it into a perversion.  I would *never* allow my kids to watch the Disney channel or any of their  movies (made after Walt died) without carefully screening them first.  (To be fair, occasionally some harmless ones sneak out - but it's rare.)  People don't realize how much mind-poisoning propaganda there is in Disney content - designed for young minds - if they did, there would be a lot of DVD/VHS tape burnings.

Eiger just stepped into a big pile of poop with his selective far left attitude of selectively apologizing to a left wing, BLM supporter and one of the close friends of the Muslim Brotherhood, Jarrett, while trashing a red-blooded, wholesome American lady like Roseanne.

Eiger: Another radical leftie hypocrite with mud on his face.

These losers crack me up. Trump defends the freedom to speak and the existing immigration laws of the country, and they call him a racist. Yet they never complain when people in the US are given admission, jobs or advancement in part due to their skin color. 

I swear that every person who has used the words racist or bigot in the last ten years was projecting their own shortcomings onto someone else.

And Trump should cut this silly shit out.

He should be ordering a FULL intelligence agency review of the alleged Russian hacking of Hillary and the DNC (server wiped or whereabouts unknown).

 

right now, Trump has essentially accepted the conclusion of Clapper (Brennan puppet) and his ‘handpicked analysts’ - a report that was absolutely not a true intel review, but speculation buttressing a desired conclusion.

 

Trump should say something like ‘that review was actually unusual and did not involve ALL intel agencies, nor as commin practice, a skeptic/opposing component.

 

The media cant easily spin it if all agencies say there was no hack or its not conclusive etc.

On the other hand, if theoretically they support some robust probability the Russians did breach Hilary’s illegal server:

 

1) Resurrects need for a special counsel to investigate Hillary and Comey.  Order Sessions to appoint or he’s fired.  Bring in Gowdy... nevermind his recent statements.  Give him oversight powers...;

2) He could then say Obama and Hillary insufficiently investigated meddling.  And gee, VOTER FRAUD also occurred... we need a national standard to prevent the dead and non-citizens (say ‘non-citizen!’) from voting.

 

But they wont find a hack.  So they find Clapper (and Brennan) CONSPIRED to fabricate a report in an effort to meddle with the election.

 

This shit with Roseanne is clownish.

 

Playtime is over.  Get to work, fucker.
