President Trump weighed-in on the recent firing of ABC star Roseanne Barr Wednesday, saying the network owes him an apology for the “horrible statements” made about the Commander-in-Chief by multiple hosts.

Trump called-out network head Bob Iger after he reportedly apologized to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett over Roseanne’s tweets, saying he “never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize.”

“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?” tweeted the President.

The iconic comedian was abruptly fired Tuesday after she posted a string of “abhorrent” tweets regarding Chelsea Clinton, various conspiracy theories, and Valerie Jarrett.

The comic later apologized, saying she would be “leaving twitter” indefinitely.
