The network displayed Trump’s tweet inserting himself into the issue.
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?

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano believed it was a mistake for Trump to send the tweet.
“I don’t think he should get involved at all, he’s now involved,” Napolitano counseled. “He’s talking about himself, and getting people to talk about him and Roseanne.”
“This is a lose, lose, lose for the president,” the former New Jersey Superior Court judge explained. “I’m sorry he sent this tweet out, but he did.”
“I know though that when most of us read the tweet for the first time, I thought it was you,” host Sandra Smith said, gesturing off-camera. “When we sat down who said, ‘oh no!'”
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich agreed.
“It just doesn’t help him in any way,” Pavlich concluded.
