Twitter hammers Donald Trump after he plays victim in aftermath of Roseanne Barr’s racist attack on Obama aide Valerie Jarrett: “Should still be shocking that we have a President who could make a cruelly racist comment about someone else an opportunity to claim that he is the victim.”
Trump tweeted: 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?

Um, you will recall NBC kept him on their network after his racist birtherism against Barack Obama and despite the horrible things heard on the outtakes for The Apprentice.
Trump spoke out, not to condemn Roseanne Barr (because how could he) but to criticize ABC, NBC and other networks for not apologizing for telling the truth about him.
This feels like the beginning of a multipart Roseanne rant that could have a lot of … https://t.co/yDPs2aNnJC

Trump is a perfect specimen of the mindset of a racist. There’s no room for empathy for others because of a constant self-obsession. https://t.co/3sPYGwehru

So frail. So thin-skinned. Whiner-in-chief thinks he deserves equal treatment as an African-American woman who was the victim of bigotry. https://t.co/2nro6Dbx1z

President Snowflake is such a tiny, small little man.
Honestly, it's so sad.

The only president in history who could try to recast himself, a 71 year old white man, as the real victim when a bigoted racist calls a black woman an ape. https://t.co/WFDjp42aFo

Trump yesterday: "Sorry, I've got to start focusing my energy" on important President things
Trump today: It's 11:30am, and he's still tweeting about things ranging from crowd size at his rally to needing an apology from a television station pic.twitter.com/67r71U6ub7

And there it is. The Rich Privileged White guy just made himself a victim of racism. There is literally nothing Trump can't make about himself. In the third person, apparently.
Trump is the personification of auto-fellatio. https://t.co/A7gmdag8Wn
