President Donald Trump could have a few different ways in replying to the firing to Roseanne Barr by ABC after the comedian came up with a racist comment about previous Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett.
He could have:
1. Condemned Roseanne for her views
2. Supported her as a victim of the liberal media and the PC police
3. Made it about himself
It was a surprise that he chose choice number three as what he often does.
“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr,” Trump tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “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 has made this the major national moment for the second time this week, talking about himself. His memorial Day tweet emphasizes more on the achievement rather than it did on the troops.
However, this should not be surprising as it is what he always does – self-interest always come first.
The former presidents showed concern about some sorts of moral compass for the country, but Trump seems not to care about those.
