    Oh my. As if Trump has ever apologized for all the hateful things he's said. He is so tone dead it's painful.

    On one hand, I'd tell him to get to work, but on the other, the work he does get done sucks too.

    I like how he refers to himself in the third-person and first-person in the same sentence. It makes it sound like he's someone related to...himself.

    I'm surprised he even knows the word "apology".

    Poor or not, whine or crow, he is correct that there is a serious double standard on how items like this are handled.

    True, but he's part of the problem with the double standard.

    He is a perfect example of the double-standard. A guy who insults and never apologizes asking why he was insulted and didn't get an apology. Not only that, Trump is usually the one to insult somebody first.

    Personally, I don't think this was purely about an insult, it was the racism that was the issue, which is a step up from simply juvenile name-calling. I don't see this as a double standard in general. That's not to say there may not be an incident picked out from ABC or any other network that absolutely is. On its face though, I don't think what Trump said points out any sort of "serious" double standard, besides himself.

    Are you kidding me? First of all, he shouldn't even enter into the conversation. Because he is a man who spends many of his days being a "bully" - name calling among other things. And not once has he ever apologized. If Trump were a sitcom, his show would have been pulled off the air several times over.

    What's unfortunate is that ABC holds itself to a higher standard than many Americans hold POTUS. That's what is sad.

    True.
    I am strictly speaking on how this industry handles these types of occurrences.



    @GermanSuplex and @samcraig - I am strictly speaking on how the industry handles these types of events. Don't read into my original post.

    Memo to Trump: Telling the truth doesn't require an apology.

    I really read the thread title as "Trump whines about apology issued to vagina". That kinda day for me, and also a plausible headline...

    Going to watch a couple of episodes of Roseanne on Prime before they wipe it, the writers on this show were pretty good 20 years ago.

    Sounds like MPD or schizophrenia. Are the tweets coming from him or is he just dictating the voices he hears?

    Maybe it was a collaboration effort and he and his staff didn't see what the other wrote ;)

    I can’t quiiiiiiiiiiite put my finger on why this comes to mind.

    Much funnier with Kline (Trump) and Cleese (the critical thinking set).



    Too bad the YouTube thumbnail itself is a spoiler.

    Ah, then maybe you might try saying what you mean.

    It might avoid conflict.

    I'm not sure, but I think that at least one of those voices must know what covfefe means.

    Perhaps clarification was called for. Then again, assumption was also not spelled out. ;)

    Is this legit?

    If so, this is a while new level of childish self importance. What a petty, petty man. Most presidents are, but they have the presence of mind to have a public face vs. their actual selves.

    Well has there been a liberal who has made such a disgusting comment like this and not get punished. I can think of Joy Reid, but that wasn't as bad and was in the past. Things in the past but found out now usually get brushed aside with the old well I think differently now excuse.

    Couldn't find any examples. The search just kept bringing up when someone said something bad about her.

    Maybe his staff is finally sabotaging him. Getting fired for cause by Trump = medal territory.
